1 November 2014
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. 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.
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. It worked great at first, but as others have said, within the first 6 months, it was constantly telling me that I was low on space, which would not allow me to text or get texts, or to make and receive calls.
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. 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.
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.
