Excerpt: I love the design of the phone, but I have had a real problem with dropping calls. I work out in the open area and can be within 5 miles of a tower and the phone will drop the call! Might be problem phone.
Excerpt: The phone was alright, it had a lot of features. If you want features such as voice recognition and voice dialing where you speak the whole number and it repeats it back to you, instead of the one at a time thing with most other manufacturers. I am a student, and I know we're not supposed to have cell phones in class, but I keep mine on vibrate. Well, I get no service in one of my classrooms, where I miss text messages and phone calls.
Excerpt: When I purchased the LG VX-5550 I was great. Or maybe it was the fact that my phone before that one (Motorola 120x) was so horrible that it made this one look like a Godsend. But I was wrong. Within months, more and more calls have been dropped, the screen becomes jumbled or blacks out, the phone sometimes won't ring when someone is calling, or the I simply can't hear the person on the other end of the phone.
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: I'm not completely worldly-wise in the ways of cellular phones - but for being my first flip-phone...I'm happy with it. I still have a lot to figure out on it - but it's my new toy and so I'll give myself time to "comprende".
My 15-year old daughter thinks it's the coolest phone ever and loves to "play" with it.
If not having a photo capability phone is okay - than this is a pretty sweet deal.
Excerpt: I bought this phone Nov 2004 two months laster the outer display LCD did not function or work. Took it into All*el and they replace with another refurbished. Little did I know..........I thought I was getting a new.cell phone THEN the phone would not even turn on two months later....no power! I took it back and lost all of my contact phone numbers. VERY unhappy with this phone. I will sell it and change service provide unhappy with both phone and provider!!!
Excerpt: WOW sums it all up. This phone is awesome which is expected from LG. Has a great custom look to it with the caller ID at the bottom. The voice commands are awesome. When I purchased it (at about 3:30pm) the battery meter was at one bar, and the phone didn't die until 9:00pm. If you've been thinking about getting a camera phone like the 6000, think about how you really don't need a camera on your phone and get this one.
Excerpt: LG continues to provide excellent phones once again!! this phone is great.. LG if you are listening, let's lose the white face cause this is the new millenium isn't it? add a little more chrome and the ability to use the speaker phone with the handset closed without having to plug in and unplug a hands free would be great!! otherwise just keep it up!!!
Excerpt: The voice recognition on this phone is the best I've yet to see, even with a lot of ambient noise. The phone is very light and has a display quality equal to that of the 4400. The white face plate lacks luster but OLED display like the 6000's adds some life.
I look forward to this being a big seller for U.S. Cellular.
