The LG CU515 has a disappointing external display and lacks some features.
17 January 2013
Summary: The LG CU515 offers a simple, user-friendly design, decent call quality, and a solid feature set that includes 3.5G support, Push to Talk, stereo Bluetooth, and world phone capability. The LG CU515 has a disappointing external display and it lacks a camera flash and voice dialing. Photo and streaming video quality were uneven.
If this phone were to break, I would purchase another one just like it.

Summary: This is my second LG CU515. I dropped mine and bought this one to replace the broken one. The camera is poor quality as is the color display but I have a camera with great features so this isn't important. I would prefer to have voice activated calling over Push to Talk, which is of no use to me. The size, shape, and color are great. Voice quality could be better but it is almost impossible to get good voice quality in cellular phones.
Summary: i've used one since '08. am on my third now, mainly because i'm a Luddite and don't want to learn another. there's two things they should have done better: -the hinge is crap. what kills these is either the hinge breaking or the ribbon cable inside the hinge comes undone and starts shorting. -the text on the inner screen is too small to read and can't be enlarged The two good things are: -long battery life -the little thinger for a lanyard.
Excerpt: Service is truly dependent upon where you live. If you don't live in an area with 3G coverage then choose another device. However, if you do have 3G coverage then this is an average phone but nothing uber exciting. The screen is a bit hard to see when you're outside and mine has a chip out of the hinge making it hard to close but that could be from me constantly putting it in my back pocket.
This LG phone stands up to everyday life and makes it easier.

Excerpt: I have not had numerous cell phones, nor have I always been into the newest form of technology. I am someone who likes what they have and tends to keep things around for as long as possible. This is why I like this phone. I dropped my first phone on tile floor and it's screen cracked so I upgraded to a flip phone. My previous phone was great but I lost it, and this brings me to the LG-CU515.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for about a year and a half, and although it's loaded with some decent functionality, if you basically want it to perform as a phone--and be able to hear it--you may be in for a disappointment. My chief complaint, and it's a biggie, is the sound quality--voices are muffled, at best, in regular mode, and if you want to use the speaker (not in bluetooth mode) the louder you make it, (so you can hear it in a car for example), the more the sound quality...
Excerpt: I mainly got this phone because I needed a new one and it is purple and semi-sparkly. It does text messages, it has an alarm, it has bluetooth which I only use to transfer ring tones I've created in Audacity to my phone. It has THE MOST ANNOYING BUTTON on the side, I'm always accidentally pushing it and then get asked, "Would you like to initiate Push to Talk? Charges will Apply." No, I don't want Push to Talk! Stupid Button!
Excerpt: My lg 515 Rev.1.0 is an exceptional phone. You can use your organizer to set alarms, check your calender, and other options. It has a pretty good camera and video recorder. It is one of the best phones that i have owned. You can also download ringtones and games off the internet with this phone. I personally like the bluetooth capability of this phone.
