After using two of the same phone, I do not recommend it.

Excerpt: I've made the mistake of getting this phone twice. The first time I had it, the battery would no longer charge after about a year. Even after using a new charger, it woulddn't hold the charge for more than a few minutes. I ended up paying for the replacement and (unfortunately) got another AX380. I've had this one since last June and, just like before, had no problems until now. A few days ago, I couldn't keep it charged for more than a few minutes.
Excerpt: At first, my husband and I liked the phone. The battery held its charge for a day and a half, and I used it constantly. After less than a year, though, the bluetooth wouldn't work. No problem, as I never used that feature much anyway. However, my husband came to me a couple of months ago, and said that his phone wouldn't charge. He's a trucker, so he needs that phone. So, he got a replacemant at $50 insurance co-pay. Within 2 weeks, mine quit charging.
Excerpt: I LOVE this phone. The signal is excelent. I've had it just over a year and have had little problems with it. The only problem i've had is with the speakerphone, but it is a very rare problem that has happened once or twice in just over a year (but then again, my phone has been dropped MANY times). The problem was that the person on the other end would hear an echo while I had it on speaker. But like I said, it's only happened once or twice and my phone has been abused.
Excerpt: Bluetooth has some issues sometimes. I find that (most of the time, not a flawless workaround) if I (1) turn off bluetooth, (2) turn off the phone, (3) remove my external memory card, (4) turn the phone on, (5) turn on bluetooth, (6) turn on my headset, which automatically pairs, (7) insert the memory card, that it'll generally work. Sometimes I'm lucky and I just have to turn on my headset. How do I know it's the phone and not the headset?
Excerpt: I've had this phone for over a year and I love it!Keypad works great for fast typers(it can keep up with what you input)Call Clarity is absolutely spot on most of the time,and the size is great. Now to the problems: When sending alot of texts,the texting screen will lock up when your trying to type,forcing you to turn the phone off and back on.
Pros: Call clarity is great.(Mostly), Text friendly, Very good beginning phone.
Excerpt: Ive had this phone for about four months and i started having problems about after two months.first the phone would no longer charge, i would have to switch the batery out everytime it went dead. second the speaker phone stopped working completely and i could only tell if i was getting a call through vibration, and if that wasnt enough more rcently everytime i would get a call the phone would reboot itself.
Pros: good easy texting, good reception, very sleek classy design
Cons: poor batery life, scratches easily, many technical problems
Excerpt: I bought the phone to use with my blue tooth head phones and listen to music. It worked great but now neither LG nor US Cellular want to be any help. I have two blue tooth devices and it either does not recognize or randomly kicks the device off mid conversation. I am extremely disappointed with the complete lack of customer support.
Excerpt: I reviewed cell phones for months looking for a replacement for my LG vx6100 which was a great phone and I had for 4 years. I finally settled on the LG ux380 from U.S. Cellular and everything I read about it is true. Great sound quality, great signal strength, great value for the money, ( I "bought" it from Letstalk for "free" with a mail in rebate.) Great features for what I want which is basically to use as a phone.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for a while and i had to get it replaced 3 times! First i had a problem with the speakerphone. it wouldnt work correctly. Second time had to replace it because every time i would try to use the camera, the phone would reboot, EVERY TIME. Now the bluetooth doesnt work on this phone and i cant use any bluetooh devices. The price is excellent for the type of phone this is. The signal strength is the same for any other phone i would use so...
Excerpt: Really like my new LG Wave AX380. Well, it was new in October 2007. My previous phone was a Motorola V60 which was top of the line when it came out. But alas it was just the old green screen, no camera and no audio. My new wave has vibrant color, a neat camera and some cool sounds. Course with it I have the same problem that I had with the old one. Slipperiness. Also could not operate either phone one handed UNTIL I got the enclosing case.
