Summary: It's a love/hate relationship. I know, by now, everybody has a "smart" phone and basic phones may a well be rocks, but this is what my current plan allows me to use and I just don't really need a "smart" phone anyway (getting old thing). I need durable phones too. The phone works well in most every way except, as others have said (and I seem to have ignored), YOU CAN'T HERE IT RING !! unless you work in a library or someplace quiet. And IT DOESN'T VIBRATE HARD ENOUGH !!
Summary: THIS PHONE HAD GOOD RATINGS SO I DECIDED TO TRY IT. THE VOLUME ON THIS PHONE IS VERY LOW COMPARED TO OTHERS. IF IT RINGS, YOU BETTER HOPE THAT IT IS NEAR BY SO YOU CAN HEAR IT. ALSO, THE BATTERY LIFE IS VERY SHORT, SO IF YOU TALK/USE THIS PHONE MUCH, YOU CAN EXPECT TO CHARGE IT A COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY.
Excerpt: I had the phone for less than two days when I first started having problems. I was texting, and I pushed the FN key and then the M key to get the graphics menu, and the phone power cycled itself. Luckily I was in the Verizon store, and so I showed someone and they checked everything and it was all fine, but whenever I try to use the graphics, the phone power cycles. The phone was promptly exchanged and the replacement phone does the same thing.
Pros: Nice looking phone, battery seems good so far
Cons: I cannot hear people well enough in conversations. They can hear me fine. Volume turned up to max. Ringer too quiet also, volume turned up to max. Why did they make this LG with a 2.5 head set jack when the rest have the standard 3.5???
Pros: Nice looking. Sturdy. Could use it to hammer in tent pegs if need be.
Cons: Incompatible with MacOS !! Terrible user manual. Written for newbies but no useful info. Can't view photos loaded on to microSD card -- probably due to size limit, but there is no information on this subject in the manual.
Cons: Powers on & off at times or locks up when you turn the phone off. Displays Event icon on the screen when no event is scheduled. When I check the menu for events it shows (1) Event when there isn't one, happens with the calendar also.I checked and dou
