Excerpt: The battery doesnt hold a charge anymore. the phone wont even turn on when it is charged. if it happens to turn on all i get is a blue screen. if your looking for a phone to last a long while DONT get this phone.
Excerpt: I don't know what exactly was running through my head when I bought this phone. I must have been expecting miracles, none of which came true. To put it simply, this phone is terrible. PROS: -None! (Surprise, surprise!) CONS: -When texting, the phone can't keep up with you, especially if you are using T9 -Signal strength is horrible- on a good day it will have 3 bars at the most where I live -Camera isn't as bad as you might think, but it's still pretty bad.
Excerpt: i LOVED this phone. it was the best one i've had so far, besides the fact that i had trouble with the speaker. i had it for a year, and it was still in great working condition when i got a different phone.
Excerpt: Very nice phone with very nice features. Signal stength is the best I've ever seen, sound quality is pretty good too. Camera on the phone is average (not awesome but not very bad either, it gets the job done). For the money, it was ok, but not as good as the LG AX-245.
Excerpt: I have ALLTEL as a service provider and re-upped my expired contract for 2 years and got this phone for $75.00, love the loud speakerphone, installed ringtones and melodies, very nice camera features, and many other gadgets it has. Wallpaper is hidden in the'My Media' under 'Images'. Auto voice dial is preset once a phone and name is entered, and instead of a ringtone you can have 'Call announcing' which is very cool..."Call from John Doe" in a mechanical but loud voice.
Excerpt: First and foremost a phone has to be a good phone. All the other bells and whistles are just extras that are nice to have. This phone has plenty of the extras but falls short of just being a plain and simple good phone. Previous to this phone I always bought Nokia and they were all excellent phones. The last one was a basic candy bar phone (3585i) with mono display. It wasn't pretty and it didn't do all the extras that the AX5000 does, but it was a better phone.
Excerpt: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE...
I bought this phone about a month ago and it sucks. I have already traded it in and got a new one just like it for free and the day i bought it, it cut off by itself twice and froze up. It is froze up right now and i am having to borrow a phone. What ever u do, do not buy this phone even tho it looks cool, it blows.
Excerpt: All the pluses others have stated and GREAT ear piece volume. This is critical to me and the LG 5000 is one of Alltels loudest phones. The only one to beat it is the LG 4270. But not by much. Good loud tones,earpiece,spkr.
