Requires a $45.00 G3 Verizon account. An acceptable for first-time cell phone users who cannot see or deal with an iPhone screen

Summary: Arrived in a box without bar code or other such information. The registration process requires access to a number on a sticker that is located under the battery. Short of hitting it with a hammer, I am unable to open the battery compartment following the posted method. The device itself has no external markings indicating the model information.
Summary: Bought phone new and was very satisfied with how it was received. Phone was exactly as stated and I expected. But when I went to Verizon to switch phone in an exisitng prepaid plan, I was told this could not be used for prepaid. While it is true a contract is not required you must have this phone in a regular plan. I thought I would share as I didn't see this detail posted anywhere.
I already had this phone & love it. I'm not interested in a smart phone

Summary: I already had this phone & love it. I'm not interested in a smart phone. The seller shipped it quickly & I had no problems. So far the phone is working fine. When I took it to Verizon to get it activated, they said it couldn't be new because the phone has been discontinued. So far, no problems with it. It is a little disappointing if this is advertised as new, if it isn't. Hopefully there will be no problems & this will last a while as I love this phone.
Excerpt: The LG octane which is available from Verizon is an update from the LG EnV3, that is why it is also called the EnV4. As you probably know the EnV series is being around for a few years now and is pretty popular.
