Excerpt: I recently upgraded to the popular LG Shine phone from AT&T this past summer. I had previously heard stories about problems with the actual slider part of the phone and poor battery life, however, this has not been my experience thus far.
Summary: It has almost everything you need in a cellphone. A phone with text messaging, music player (that supports MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+) , Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot, camera with high-resolution video capture (and rotates to face in or out / self-timer, multi-shot functions / brightness, white balance controls), USB mass storage mode, a full-duplex speakerphone, dual color displays, WAP / Web Browser, Alarm, calculator with unit converter, calendar with To-Do List,...
Summary: Nothing special but works after a fashion - bought it as an unlocked phone for voice calls and texting to use in Europe, India and Australia and it does the job, although clumsily and with no evidence of an intuitive design. Shipping was prompt but the included battery was well past its useful life.
Summary: I needed to replace my old LG because the screen went dark so I ordered this replacement. These guys were very helpful. I had an issue with the battery and they sent me another very quickly. Response to emails was fast.
Summary: I went through a period of time where I broke a phone annually. That is until I bought this phone on ebay nearly 4 years ago. I am not... nice to phones. I drop them constantly. I even dunked this phone in water, once mildly, the second time it was fully immersed. I would have been happy if this phone had lasted the regular 2 years that we tend to expect now days. This phone has gone above and beyond. I had to replace the battery two years ago.
Summary: This phone is built like a tank and is very easy to use worldwide. The charging connection cover is a weak link but who cares? I travel a lot and this is easy to change the sim card. The camera is great. I never use the 3G network stuff so I buy this as a great phone.
