Summary: I bought the MetroPCS LG Beacon after y daughter flushed a phone of the same model down the toilet. Yikes! We have the basic family plan (4 phones for $100 per month), so we can't use smart phones on that plan. The LG Beacon has a touch screen and a pull-out keyboard which makes the phone easy and interesting to use.
Perfect product for the "old school" cell phone user.

Summary: Having been a Metro PCS customer for over 12 years and still using a 10 year old LG cell phone, it became time to upgrade. I do not like "smart phones" since most of them are dumb and wastes time. I wanted a cell phone that makes calls, receives calls, takes messages and makes it easy to text when necessary. This LG Beacon was the perfect choice. It has some of the more sophisticated elements, but only if I want to use them.

Summary: Coming from a Smart Phone environment, using this phone seems draconian!! But as a phone in general, it works pretty good. It's downfall is the Metro PCS service. I believe any other service and this phone, as simply a phone, is fine. There's too little that it does for me, so it was a major downgrade, but it serves its purpose.
Slide out KB is great. Awesome product for the price and usage. Very satisf

Summary: I bought this phone for my son to use with MetroPCS by-the-minute plan. It is great because of the slide out keyboard. He can text to his hear delight. This is a basic phone, so compared to whats on the market now it pails in comparison. However, for the by-the-minute plan its perfect as a first phone for an 11 year old. I pay $10/month for 200 mins of calls, unlimited texting, and 20MB of data usage. Thats an unbelievable price for an emergency phone and he loves it.
Summary: Phone is Great. Ive had many cellphones and this one is one of the better ones. phone Features for metro, and decent. pone speed is ok. The only thing I do not like is there is no Video Camera.
