Summary: LG L55C - Black (Straight Talk) Smartphone is not meant to be used in other countries other than California. I wasted almost $60 in buying two of this smartphone only to find out that the code can not be broken.Is a good smartphone but buyers outside California beware!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: It was suppose to be a New Phone, however, when received and the battery charged the phone has not worked properly. It goes crazy coming on and off, buzzing, switching from one screen to another. I have re-programed it with Verizon three times and now it appears to be working better.
Summary: I had this phone for almost a year when it started acting up on me. If would start by turning itself off and then back on. Sometimes it wouldn't even turn itself back on at all. And if that was the case, you had to take the battery out and put it back in for it to somewhat work.
Summary: Get this phone for someone who isn't interested in apps or maybe a grandmother who doesn't care. but don't expect to have as many bars of service as you would with other phones. If you like to use apps, skip this phone. Don't allow the maps or anything else to update, EVER!
Summary: My husband and I got these phones two years ago at Verizon as a "buy one get one" deal. That should've clued us in, but it didn't, since the Verizon Rep had nothing but good things to say about it.
Summary: Half of the applications I never used on the phone and you cannot uninstall any of them. Then It constantly wants you to update them and it just eats your memory. I dropped phone calls all the time. I did like the drop down keyboard, made it easy to text.
Summary: This phone has very small memory and the battery dies extremely fast. The only good feature about this phone is the keyboard. If an iPhone had this keyboard, it would be the perfect phone. Touch screen is not very sensitive.
Summary: I find the menu paths difficult to follow. This is my first smart phone though. It seems that all the decent apps. are rented to you on a month basis fee. I just feel like it is to difficult to use so far. It will get easier with time I'm sure.
Excerpt: It was a great phone. I loved how fast it was until what i call doomsday. The day the 2.2 update came out. After that day the phone went downhill...FAST. It froze at least once a day and the slider would not work so I had o use the small onscreen keyboard.
