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. Very upsetting since it was a Christmas present. Was going to return it but my granddaughter needed a phone so we're making due at this time.
Summary: Four days my husband spent trying get my android phone to work only to be told that this phone Net 10 works off ATT. Towers and this is sprint phone. Why is it not in description? So my birthday present was worthless as a phone. I am sick and we changed over leaving me without phone. I have to purchase a phone today because my medical team call every day and I am on call counselor and chaplin. I am critically ill.
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! There is only a bare minimum of memory on this phone and it fills up QUICK.
Excerpt: I purchased the LG Ally phone when it first became available. I had read several reviews about it online and they were all very mixed. The LG ally definetly has several pros and cons. I feel like the cons outweight the pros though. I have had the phone for three months and have already had to have two replacements. The LG ally that I had kept turning off at very random times. I would try yo answer a call and it would shut off.
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. Im sure the phone was perfect about 5 years ago but now it is a little bulky and outdated.
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. I also feel like a person needs skinny fingers for the touch screen. I really need to focus on where I touch the screen to get the desired results.
Summary: I received this phone free through a promotion with Verizon. Have had it a year and the battery after about 3 months started crapping out. 1 year into use the battery needs to be replaced. Love the android platform and the pull out button keyboard, otherwise, eh.
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. I could easily go from 8 to 8 and have about 50 percent battery left. After 2.2 i could go the same amoun and only have about 10 percen left. Battery sucked. Right now i would not recomened it to people.
Excerpt: This phone is very average. For its overall size its really heavy and feels like a brick in my pocket. I've dropped it a couple times and its held up ok. I've gone through like 3 of them due to problems with text messages, and the vibrate function going out. The worst thing about it is the internal storage. I have all my apps saved to my SD card, run a task manager, and clear my cashes often, and it still complains about having low memory thanks to all the bloat wear.
