Summary: Buyer Beware. These phones (I purchased 2) are either rejects or refurbished. Oakland Wireless agreed to replace one of them, but it and the second phone are inferior products. I've had this model for years and wanted simply to replace my worn out original. In both units, the camera was so inferior it was useless to even attempt to take a picture. "Dust" would enter both units and get behind the interior screen to the point you could not read text messages.
Summary: The phone itself is good, I have had that kind of phone for a long time. However, this phone said "good condition, and it was not in good condition. The camera does not work, the screen is scratched, the speaker only works occasionally, and there is a crack on the keyboard.
Summary: The phone I received did not work properly. You could not hear when messages were received even when volume was turned to high. The camera was not working as it should so half the picture was cloudy. I was not at all happy with this phone.
Summary: This is THE WORST phone I have EVER had! If I could have given it negative stars I would have! I am in a contract with Verizon Wireless and I have been sent 4 different LG Octane phones over the past year. They all have similar problems: phone powering down when you send a text message with an emoticon, powering down at random, powering down during phone call, powering down when sending a plain text message, lighting up at random (wasting battery), and the end button not...
Summary: Ordered the phone. Got the phone per the ship time. Phone was ordered for my grandmother (80 years old) who had been without a phone for over a week. Got the phone with a water damaged battery. Had to contact vendor again. Then he only sent a phone w/out a battery. I had to purchase a battery from my company (which is largest wireless provider) and had it to her before the vendor had one sent. Phone is all scratched up and was a very bad experience! Awful!
Summary: THE PHONE I RECEIVED WAS NOTHING LIKE THE OCTANE- HARD TO UNDERSTAND HOW THAT MISTAKE WAS MADE AND SINCE ORDERING A CASE FOR IT CAUSED US ADDITIONAL RETURN ISSUES WOULD NEVER ORDER A PHONE AGAIN FROM THIS PARTICULAR SITE
Summary: I did NOT purchase from this seller. I purchased it directly from Verizon. This phone lasted six months and fell apart. I am not hard on my phones at all. I even purchased a protector case for it, and it still fell apart. The hinges became loose, and the phone no longer stayed closed. I have two friends who have the same phone, and a similar problem is happening to them. Very cheaply made.
Pros: great mp3 player/ speakers. good clarity with sound. easy to sych with Outlook. good keyboard.
Cons: Within the last month- VERY "buggy" when attempting to add a graphic to picture/ text messages: Crashes and restarts after attempting this. I have had two replacements of this model within 3 days of each other and all was defective when texting. Verizon
