Amazing Alltel device

narn3049, Phone Scoop
14 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I got this after the lg i had previously had broke. It was silver I think it was 5450, yeah that's what it was, but I broke the bar that it flips on, not necessarily the hinge. So I went into Alltel and purchased this, after hearing it was an upgrade to the one I'd previously owned, I had to get it.

  • Excerpt: This is the best phone I have ever had. I had the Blackberry pearl, Sidekick 3, Palm treo, and the Rumor. Out of all those phones this one is the BEST. I have it right now.

I was a good phone until....

Big Boy, Phone Scoop
27 December 2005
  • Excerpt: This was my first phone. It was flashy and modern looking. I was excited and happy with it at first, but then I didn't like it much anymore. The ring-tones were pretty lame. Downloading things on it took a long time. The front screen kept getting scratched up. I had to take it back three times to get new ones, but it always ended up breaking down on me. I finally updated this year to a LG AX5000, which I'm really enjoying compared to this phone.

Great Phone, Wish I still had it

  • Excerpt: The best phone I have owned to date. Pros: -Awesome Speaker phone, Loud and Clear. -Diving Mode. I could just rattle off numbers and it always caught up. -Slick OLED display, which in my mind made up for the overall larger size of the phone. -good layout of buttons/menus. -PLAYS MP3 ringtones! This was what really made the phone for me. High quality ones too, at 128+ kbps Cons: -Internal screen looks washed out.

Ugh I want a new phone!

Chrissyade, Phone Scoop
14 November 2005
  • Excerpt: OK, I know, it's super cute. But don't let its appearance fool you! I first got this phone around 4 or 5 months ago. It's still functional and I haven't had to trade it in for a new one yet, however, it HAS had a few issues. My first complaint was that it damages extremely easily. I dropped it once since I had it and the ring around the display has a good bit of dents in it. So make sure you buy a protective case if you purchase this phone.

  • Excerpt: Seems like there's some real quality issues with this phone. The first one I had started to shut itself off constantly after the first two weeks. The second phone work great for about 4 months then the speaker phone quit rendering all of the voice command stuff unusable. The third phone, which I just got today and I'm taking back tomorrow, has a problem with the inner display which shows the graphics chopped up and/or distorted.

  • Excerpt: welcome to my nightmare. I upgraded to this sorry thing in march of 05. if the work worked right it would be the perfect non camera phone. unfortunately i am on my 3rd defective phone's have screen issues, i have speaker issues and it over heats and turns off after 30 min of use. If you have alltel i am sorry but the lg3300 is your best bet.

LG 5550

GEOB, Phone Scoop
22 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Can't say what I really feel since this is a family site. Bought this phone in Oct. last year and right from the start had big problems. Lost calls, distorted screen, poor reception etc. etc. Has been repaired???? twice with no good outcome and is now in the original store where I bought it. I find out thru one of the reps that LG knew it had a big problem with these phones but are doing nothing. Have tried to get my money back or to get someone from LG to call me.

Very nice phone

cingularrepva, Phone Scoop
19 July 2005
  • Excerpt: I must say that out of all of the phones I have owned this is one of the best. I am on cingular and alltel. In my area, one works some places the other in other places. All the features of this phone are nice. This was my 1st phone with a speaker on it.Now all of the phones I get MUST have that feature.The only prob. I had with the speaker was the 1st month I had it it was quirky but it seemed just to stop cutting out.Also the voice dial is god like. SoSo easy to use.
