What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use I had this phone and recently lost it. i went to an AT&t store and was disappointed that they no longer carried these. i bought another brand of flip phones and wasn't happy with it, it wasn't as easy to use as the B470, and the text prompt sound was too weak even when turned all the way up. I returned that phone and ordered a new B470.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Answer This phone is a excellent advice. So can I connect mi phone who's a smartwatch

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is literally trash. Texting takes forever, images are so bad! the battery dies so fast, audio is just horrid, the browser is useless and might just be for show. It has bluetooth, but for what again? That's right: NOTHING!!! This thing can't even play music so what is the bluetooth for? If you want to buy this for your kid. Go ahead and ruin their lives. Texting takes hours to type something that should take seconds. If you are texting a friend and they text you while you type then you have two options; Look at what they said and delete everything you've typed or ignore the text and hope it isn't anything important. There is a reason why this phone was discontinued!

Wife washed my LG-B470 in washing machine. Caught it half way through wash cycle. Took out sim card and battery. Drying on paper towel at the moment. Can anything be salvaged. The most important is my contacts.

Asked by: Richie 777
Regrettably, there is no way to determine if anything from the SIM card that was in your LG B470 | AT&T Prepaid phone or if the battery can be salvaged. It will all depend on how much water got into the SIM card slot. If you had been able to remove either as soon as possible you might have avoided permanent damage. Although SIM cards don't have battery-powered electronics like cellphones do, prolonged exposure to water can damage the card. SIM cards have delicate electronics, but limited openings to allow water inside to damage the internal components. If you drop your SIM card in water, remove it as quickly as possible. The longer the SIM card is exposed to water, the more likely it is to be damaged. Short exposure is unlikely to cause damage to a SIM card. Immediate action is the key to saving a wet SIM card. Laying the SIM card on a dry paper towel overnight to allow it to dry completely before trying to use it in any phone is a recommended procedure. If the SIM card sits in water for more than a few minutes, put it in a bowl of uncooked rice overnight to help draw any water out of the card. The same with the battery. Try drying it out as much as possible before attempting to use it in a phone. If it hasn't dried out completely, it could short out...^IFV

What does it mean when you turn your phone on and it says puk blocked?

Asked by: AngieAppleLynn
For the safety of wireless subscriber's data and monetary investment, many phone manufacturers provide an option to place a PIN lock on a SIM card. This PIN lock keeps strangers from accessing what's on the SIM card or making calls with the locked phone. If you enter an incorrect PIN code three times, a PUK (Pin Unlock Key) code will be requested. This number is provided by the service provider.
