Summary: I just wanted simple phone and have had this LG GS170 for several years...right now am experiencing getting another one as the screen went blank and my insurance says they don't cover it...TMobile no longer carries this model....I have a loaner that I hate (another brand) I don't want touch screen and all the fancy stuff.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings
Summary: I've been using this phone for the past 3 months and the issues mentioned by other reviewers haven't been an issue for me. Regarding texting, the * key, as one reviewer mentioned, is how to toggle through the different T9 words. Regarding the alerts when messages are received, I always get a beep although it's a bit quiet even after turning the volume to high.
Summary: simple and pretty-my mother was very happy with it!It came quickly and in perfect condition.I bought it as a replacement for her old favorite Nokia which had been dropped too many times. I was worried about the color at first, but thought that every girl should have something red... even if you are 80!
