Summary: What stops it from being ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS, just as the three drop dead gorgeous VX 8700s I had before it, is LG's REFUSAL to allow access to voice command, through a bluetooth device, with the flip closed. As a truck driver it is illegal for me to dial from the handset, and I prefer to keep my phone in my pocket at all times while driving. I can still answer calls and the bluetooth performance is otherwise flawless.
Summary: No one in my family does texting or internet on our phones so it is getting harder & harder to get just "phone". While I know this phone has the capability of texting & internet, we don't use it for that. The phone has great volume & big text on the display. My husband & I both got ours @ the same time & his phone did have much greater battery life, but after going to Verizon & getting a new battery in my phone, all seems to be good.
Summary: I WANTED A GOOD BASIC PHONE. ONE THAT WAS NOT COVERED ON THE EXTERIOR WITH BUTTONS THAT WHEN TRYING TO ANSWER A CALL YOU HANG UP OR TAKE A PICTURE, ETC. JUST A PHONE TO TALK AND TEXT WITHOUT ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES.
Can't get Backup Assistant to work, Bluetooth prob

Summary: This phone would most likely get all 'Five Stars' if it weren't for two issues. 1- I tried two phones, worked with Verizon on-line and in person and none of use could get Backup Assistant to work. The second phone is going back. 2- I could live with this and didn't get this far to try it- I understand that the phone must be left open for Bluetooth to stay connected. Get this phone to work like my six year old Chocolate 3 and gets all five stars and a recommendation easy!
Summary: I have a video recorder and a digital camera. I do not have time to play games on line so I do not need a data plan. I have a mobile device where I get my e-mail and I just connect to hotspots for free. I just need a telephone that makes calls and this was a perfect choice for me. Durable and reliable. Easy access to dial the numbers manually or can voice who I want to call. Love the feel and look.
Summary: Solid feel in hand. Enough features for me. T9Word has a few quirks, not as good as my last version of same program. Really needs to include product manual in box. Finding download version was next to impossible, but I finally did. Still, love the phone.
Summary: Great phone with large numbers and easy to use menu. BUT, like some others have posted here, I have been unable to download my contacts using the backup assistant. Just received phone today, so will try again tomorrow, but kind of annoying!
