Great cellular phone for basic services!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This phone includes features such as web-browsing, texting, media center, and a personal organizer. Great for anyone who isn't interested in purchasing a highly advanced phone when all they want to do is call and/or text.

I chose this phone because:
1. It has great battery life.
2. It has a sim card slot allowing me to use this phone with a variety of different carriers.
3. It's not a smart phone and therefore, I don't have to purchase special service plans.

The only downside of this phone is its operating system and the lack of an independent speakerphone button. Since the phone is based on Java, it's resource intensive. Simply said, battery life isn't as good as it could be. Yet it's still much better than anything you'll ever get with today's smartphones. Of course, the independent speakerphone button situation is more preference than problem. The speakerphone is an included feature and can be activated by pressing the "OK" button when engaging in phone conversations.

Good basic phone.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent basic phone. Nothing flashy, good battery life, easy to use. Make calls, text, and have an alarm clock. That's pretty much it. Price was much better from the seller I used than most retail chains. Only dislike for me is the outer display features. This thing likes to use the entire outside screen to notify you of things. Hitting the volume cycles it and can cause you to miss calls/texts when your not paying attention, not hitting it means you cant see the clock without cycling through crap, and any time you send/receive a call the name or number is posted on the outside display even when the phone is open. There is no option to turn this off. I'm not sure what genius thought that was a good idea, but its not the first model I've seen do this. Display aside, if your looking for a good base model this is it.

Great basic phone!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This phone was not purchased for heavy data use, only as a basic cell phone. Basic phone use is great, it seems to keep calls connected better than past LG models.

Great basic phone

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The phone is perfect for a basic phone. Love the volume levels there is no problem hearing it ring on no problems with hearing the other person talk. Love the compact size and sporty color as well.

Don't waste your time or money on this phone.

No, I would not recommend this product.

this phone was a disappointment. Very difficult to open due to slim, small styling. The screen ended up cracking after 2 days so it would not display the date and time on outer screen. Also could not get it to give a message alert tone. Ended up returning it to Target and buying a Nokia flip phone used on Ebay.

These phones are great for folks that just want to make calls and maybe text. They are extremely durable with a great battery life and easy to use. Nothing fancy but takes a beating and keeps on ticking

Pleased

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This mobile is for a young person for whom the cell serves the purpose of contact. A basic phone for those 'keep in touch calls'. Nothing SPECIAL. My niece loves it and knows that possessing this item, is a step down the road of responsiblity. Definitely a good, reasonable purchase. A great starter.

awesome, cheap, simple

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I like the simplicity of this phone. It comes with a lot of features and a long battery life. If all you want to do with a phone is text and make call then this phone is for you.
