Summary: Why on earth does anyone want a $600+ Smart phone when this makes calls just as well?? And before you say it, I already have a digital camera, a GPS receiver, and several computers to do all the rest and NO I don't need to carry them with me wherever I go...
Summary: As hard as some might find this to believe, I have very little use for a cell phone. That said, it's easier and cheaper for me to use this phone for long distance calling than it is to contract with a long-distance carrier.
Summary: I love this phone. It is a simple, straightforward phone with email and online access. All I want to do with my phone is make phone calls. I am not in the least bit interested in being technically connected 24 hours a day. I value my privacy.
and tracfone had better service, i would rate 5 stars

Summary: this is an ok phone, got it for my 93 year old mom for emergency use. big buttons simple phone a must for her. downside, can not disable browser if my mom accidentally pushes browser button she can use up all minutes before she realizes whats going on.
Summary: I loved my elderly Nokia tracfone, but you can't buy them anymore, so I got the LG. As other reviewers have noted, call and message receiving are very erratic. It took three weeks (you read this right!) for me to get a message from my mother.
Summary: I purchased this phone for my mother. Its easy to use and has double minutes. Its lightweight and fits in your pocket or a purse. If you only need a cell phone to make phone calls and nothing else, this is a great buy.
I was planning to getting smart phone and so wasn't to bummed when it drowned

Summary: This phone worked well until it met a wave on the Pacific Ocean while I was kayaking with my son. It was not the phone's fault and I did not expect it to survive the event. I just happen to have had it with me instead of leaving it in the car. The phone's speaker it tinny and sometimes hard to hear.
