I had the chance to use this phone a tiny bit because of a friend giving it to me to do a review and then i gave it back. The phone has a solid look to it and a good upgrade from the scoop/rumor. The keyboard and sound quality as well as some other bugs with a better camera and little other tiny differences were fixed. It seems like LG read the negative reviews of the first rumor/scoop and made a good phone out of it.

Now there is small cons with this phone that werent on the first phone, even if the settings are correct as you want them the camera seems to take pictures of everything grainy. I don't know why but it does. Other phones don't of this model. One thing that was hard to get used to was the select keys on the qwerty keyboard being further away from the options that you want to select. Also I find the text message showing all conversations a little tiny bit confusing. Over all if want a good messaging phone for the usc or alltel network,, choose this. it is a good choice

LG Banter

I love the Qwerty keyboard on this phone. The only problem is that my original Banter must have short circuited and I had to replace it with a used one on Ebay. The replacement has been working great. I like the size and feel of the phone too.Read full review...

The phone was in great condition and it works great! Very pleased with the purchase!

Works very well

I like that it has a sliding keyboard however the only thing I don't like is that it doesn't have video recording. But then again that is not something that I use everyday so over all I am very satisfied.Read full review...
