The Peak of the Cellphone (Dumbphone) era
The LG Rumor was one of the best cellphones of its time before the smartphone took over. I'm one of the last of a dying breed, still using a quirty keyboard to text my messages, unable to get Yelp to rate local restaurants etc... I absolutely LOVE the design of this model the way I LOVE the design of the 1962 Chevy Nova.

"Good Phone for you basic needs"
Pros: Good feature set for non-smartphone with email, Facebook, Twitter, Opera Mini, and has touchscreen; touchscreen is pretty accurate; 3G is definite plus; bubble-style texting interface is handy; includes predictive text feature for a decent keyboard. Cons: Touchscreen can be a pain when scrolling through menus; Hello UI hard to get to, therefore kind of useless; keyboard layout not great; game selection sucks unless you are willing to pay; data plan priced like smartphone; Sprint's network; camcorder Summary: Verizon has its Envs and Sprint has its Rumors. LG and Verizon obviously have a decent partnership, because the Rumor Touch is not the Env Touch. However, the Env Touch was an editor's choice, so it's pretty hard to be as great. That being said, the Rumor Touch is pretty decent in its own right. User Interface (Touchscreen): The touchscreen is not bad for a resistive one, but it is still resistive. Scrolling through menus often results in the accidental selecting of an icon, and keep your fingernails long. All in all, though, it is responsive enough for all but those who have been using capacitive screens since 2007. And let's face it, if you have been using capacitive screens since '07, you're probably not going to buy this phone anyway. Overall, the UI is simple enough to understand and navigate, and the menus are easily customizable in an intuitive and simple way. The Hello UI is cool, but it's really hard to get to, and so I, for one, never use it, which is a real shame because it is a great concept, just poorly executed. Still, BREW (Qualcomm's OS, used on the phone) is simple and straightforward and will appeal to the heavy texter, and even the average one. Features The Rumor Touch has a great feature set for the most part, with dedicated Google Maps, email, Twitter, and Facebook apps. It also has both a default browser and the excellent Opera Mini, which is speedy and easy to use and great over a 3G connection. The email app is far from spectacular, and only works with Yahoo! and Gmail (so I couldn't hook up my Verizon account), but hey, it's there, and most people I know use Yahoo! and Gmail anyway. Still, it's really not a Blackberry. The Twitter and Facebook apps are similar to the email in that they are far for great, but they're there and that's a bonus any day on a feature phone (P.S.--I don't use Facebook and Twitter, so I really haven't used them except to see what they were--you should get a second opinion on them.). Google Maps is an awesome app that works as a GPS; it's kind of slow, but it will help if you are completely lost and need help, which is really what it's supposed to do. Media There is a microSD slot on the phone that can support up to 32gb microSD cards, so if you use it, you can put all the music on it you want, provided you buy the card. The multimedia is not bad. Sound quality is good, and videos are pretty much what you would expect from a 240x400 screen--kind of watchable. Wrap-up There was really nothing about this phone that really blew me away, but there was nothing that made me cringe either. The good things about this phone definitely outweigh the bad, and the few bad things are really mostly minor and hardly deal-breakers. For everyone except heavy smartphone users, this phone will be great. Read full review

Lg Rumor Touch is a Great Phone
The Lg Rumor touch is great phone. The touch screen is pretty good and responsive. the camera is OK but lacks flash and doesn't really take good pictures. The video quality is ok to and only records 320x240. The Battery life is good, call quality is good but the keyboard of the phone is not really spacey and might take awhile to get used to. Music player sucks though because its really slow changing songs. In general it's a good phone. It's one of the phone that you can get if you are trying to avoid data plans on smartphones.

Dependable, EASY, and low stress
This was a replacement for the identical lime green Rumor phone that I've proabaly been using for 5 years, I literally WORE THE NUMBERS OFF IT--and it still worked!! Sprint had no comparable phones available, they want you to upgrade your plan and go high tech which I literally don't want to do. (I only began texting when I got this phone with the keyboard and only use that feature with my high tech kids!!) Since I already have invested in a car charger, and some additional equipment for the phone I have, I decided to see if I could find another on ebay---just like the one I've had such good luck with. And yes, I LIKE my lime green phone---can always find it in the bottom of my purse. (Will admit one further attachment to lime green----it matches my lime green Honda Element, which I can always find in the Walmart parking lot!!) My only complaint was my new phone arrived with a BLACK battery, but solved that problem by putting the lime green battery from my old phone onto the new one, and use the black battery as an emergency back up. (And of course, still have the original lime green phone that I was unable to kill should this one die!!) Great phone for the older crowd, works well, easy to navigate, and makes texting a piece of cake. As high tech as I care to get at this stage of my life!! (OMG I'm turning into my mother!!!)

Excellent phone choice for durability and talk/texting!
A great little phone for texting and talking that can really stand up to the day to day. Doesn't have a fancy touch screen to break and can be dropped often without completely killing the function of the phone!
