VS840

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of missed calls due to Silent mode Most features seem pretty straight forward and easy to find/use. Preventing Silent Mode seems to be the exception. I regularly check the phone for missed calls. because it seems to randomly and unexpectedly go to Silent Mode. End result is so far I've missed about 2/3 of my incoming calls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this phone I'll be kicked out of apps at random, about a third of the time I'll try to open an app only to be told it's not responding, "Unfortunately, Gmail has stopped" will pop up several times a day, the LG keyboard will stop working while I'm trying to send a text message, sometimes the lock screen is completely unresponsive so I can't get into my phone, and there was a several day long stint where the keypad on the main screen wasn't responding so I had to open the phone itself (the box at the bottom of the home page) in order to make calls. The phone will restart itself at random, and any text messages I receive during that time are eaten by the void and I never see them. The browser will close unexpectedly and close all open tabs (the history tab is very useful in that). Even when it works well, it's very, very slow. I received this phone for free with a 2 year contract, and it's worth exactly as much as I paid for it. I told a Verizon Help representative about these issues and was told that I was due for an upgrade, as these issues were apparently too much for the help service to take on. From what I can tell, some of these issues can be fixed by purchasing various fixes and workarounds, but I definitely feel that the phone should be able to work on its own without having to pay for more items.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This phone is awful I dread making phone calls because 95% of the time others can't hear me and then my phone all of a sudden just drops the call. To make a 5 minute phone call usually ends being like 15 minutes at least. I have no storage anymore for pictures or music and I don't even have enough because this phone stores apps and stuff on it, which should be on the internal. It has issues with apps. I have apps that barely work and I have at least one app that crashes every week. My message and keyboard crash all the time, which is really frustrating. And I can't delete old conversations. It says it is but after 20 minutes it still hasn't deleted it. I have to restart my phone. Battery life is awful and the phone just randomly restarts for no reason.
