Pros: Screen is good enough for a basic phone like this. Camera is decent but nothing special. Battery is decent.
Cons: Constantly freezes up for 2-3 seconds while unlocking the phone, texting, or navigating the menus. Extremely frustrating and a complete deal breaker for me. The T9 on this phone is dated, I've had older phones with much better systems.
Would not recommend this phone! Slide mechanism brakes easily!

Summary: This is the type phone we got for our teenage son as his first phone. The slide mechanism broke after 6 months, it could not be fixed and of course was not covered by any type of warranty even though it was brand new when we got it. His friend had gotten the same phone and his slide mechanism broke after 2 months. I decided to get him a phone like the one I had, a Verizon Octane. I mistakenly bought this phone again! I now use this phone and he has mine.
Excerpt: My second phone, going to be my third (same thing) and it break every single time. I can use it for emergencies at all. Screen go black and freezes. While im texting the words flip upside down and backwards.
Excerpt: I orginally got this phone for me and my husband when it was time for an upgrade on my end. Verizon had a buy 1 get 1 FREE sale and I was using a Voyager that was breaking. First off, I chose this phone because it is one out of the FIVE they have available if you DO NOT want internet service on your phone. If I were to get a phone that was closer to the Voyager, I would have to upgrade my plan to either a 9.99 or a 29.99 internet package which I thought was ridiculous.
Summary: Well, I was all happy with it at first--it did was it was supposed to, it never failed me, but then, it wasn't at all like it was. One time it locked itself and I had no idea how to unlock it. It kept asking me for a code, and I had never set one, so I was really confused. One of my friends however told me to put in the last four digits of my number and it worked. But then, it got worse. It started turning off at random times.
Phone works for my needs but battery life is terrible.

Summary: I purchased this phone for one reason only and that was I was switching to pre-paid plan and this was the best lg phone that would work with Verizen plan. The battery life for this phone is woefully short, seems I am always charging it, especially if I listen to music. The screen is small but it is very clear and with a good picture. The music player is very generic since they didnt have one for the Cosmos 1 I had heard.
Summary: I've had this phone for about a year and it is terrible! It turns off by its self and the screen fades off and will not work, and the keys stop working. If I would on known about this I wouldn't have bought it.
Pros: It takes videos and records stuff. That's the only good thing.
Cons: Some of the texts are not even words they are squares and you can't read what the other person says on the text. Doesn't even ring or show that someone called. it turns on even though it was already on.
