Summary: I received this device with the idea that it was new or pretty much like new unit. The unit shows sign of wear on the front physical buttons and somewhat on the screen, after activating the device and going through the backup assistant process. I realized that the phone is worthless because upon receiving a call the audio comes out distorted and jumbled, you cannot understand anyone. The speaker sound fine but why paid good money to only be able to use the speaker.
Summary: I've only had it for about a month, and already I'm having problems with it. The phone itself is slow to begin with, but I thought I would be able to deal with it, but now I'm experiencing more problems. I cannot take photos anymore because the camera is blurry. It dies quickly, its really slowwwwwww, and it turns off on its own sometimes.
Excerpt: Pick something else. I bought this phone because it was one of the first really cool touch screens I had seen. It has a bunch of silly perks that I thought were cool - like quickly finding elmo's world episodes that I could lockdown and throw at my toddlers to entertain them quietly. It had a cute screen that you could put pictures of your five favorite peeps to call them quickly instead of going through your phonebook...
Excerpt: I remember when this phone came out, and people were raving how this is going to be the iPhone killer and what not. This is far from it. It's not even a smart phone. If anything the closest it can be is a media phone. The concept was really cool because of the touch screen interface and the media friendly modifications and such on the phone.
Excerpt: The LG Dare was the worst cell phone I have ever owned! The cell phone originally worked great, then after 10 months of using it, I started having problems. The left corner or the touch screen started changing color. Eventually this left hand corner didn't work at all. I couldn't text message or use the number pad on that side of the phone. I took it to the VZW customer service center and they told me it was my fault for carrying it in my purse. They replaced it.
Summary: I purchased a new lg dare because after three years mine broke(dropped it one too many times). The "new" phone I received already has time on the lifetime calls and data on the lifetime date: lifetime calls= 333:32:48 lifetime data counter= 17401kb. I simply don't understand how a new phone has such a large amount of lifetime calls and data. This is not a new phone. It's a refurbished one. Also the battery lasts only nine hours with about 3 short phone calls.
Summary: It took over two weeks to get my phone and when i didnt get my phone on the last estimated dilivery date i wrotea customer review just like this. These people sent me a message saying i had to delete my customer service review statement before they shipped me my phone the next day. Absolutley horrible customer service.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for only a couple of months. It turns on and off for no reason, randomly calls people and texts people. The external backlight will turn off and you have to filp it open to use the phone or turn it off and then back on. The clock on the external screen disappears. Today it erased all my downloaded ringtones. It locks up while texting or trying to use the phone for any reason. It does not retain the words you save in T9.
Cons: Phone Calls, Texting, Apps, Memory, Informaiton Retention, Random Calls and Texting, Battery Life, Freezes Up, Doesn't work properly
