Summary: This is a good phone. I bought it for my aunt and mom because of its big screen and ease of use. The "Internet Search" shortcut is great. The envelope button to go straight into a new text message is great. My mom accidentally ran hers through a cycle in the washing machine and IT SURVIVED (still works great!) The only shortcoming of this phone is that occasionally it will boot you off of the Internet.
Excerpt: Even though the Net10 prepaid cell phone service has been available for several years now, I never really had any desire to switch to the company. To be honest, it really had nothing to do with their service plans.
Summary: Obviously at this price point you can't expect the apps and functions to be the same as an expensive smart phone. But the features the phone does have should work. They don't. I was never able to get on the internet with this phone. It kept dumping the connection after a few seconds, telling me there was insufficient memory even though the phone was brand new and had nothing at all stored in the memory.
Summary: I like this old phone. Have tried to get into latest phones, but, I don't like Android. Blackberry phones not great, either. Each time I buy a newer generation phone, I go back to this one. I am usually the "early adopter" for new tech, but with a phone, I do not need to check socmed, gps, etc. Just talk and a few texts during day. Keyboard has great feel also. Never thought I'd be so happy with this old phone.
Get a used or refurbished lg900g while you still can.

Summary: This is a one of a kind phone from net10. First: Pay as you go plans on this phone lets you send and receive texts for a quarter of a minute (compared to the usual half a minute on other net10 phones). That's right, you can text all day and night on this sucker, and it won't drain you dry needing to get more minutes too soon. Second: If you have an alarm set and the phone has been turned off. The phone will turn itself back for your alarm to wake you up.
Summary: The phone looks very nice.The buttons are very small. The phone has no speaker phone. You have to look the phone or it will dial numbers on you. The vibrate alert is hard to change to and it doesn't vibrate much to alert you of a call. I keep my phone in my pocket and could barely feel it when it vibrates. I hate the way you have to switch from letters to numbers to symbols. There is an easier way to change from one to another.
