  • Summary: My Optimus M was, at first, an awesome phone. Speed was a little under average, and I didn't much like only having 150mb memorywise, but other than that it was excellent. Until it went rogue 4 days after receiving it. Locking the screen was risky business, because most of the time, the buttons would light up but the screen wouldn't turn back on. I had to remove and reinsert the battery to get my phone on, and this happened about 10 times a day.

  • Summary: I bought this phone a year ago, but even new this phone caused problems. I have watched it freeze, restart, fail to mount my SD card, and all sorts of other problems. I have had it restart in the middle of the night(sometimes it would just shut off and stay off) and disable my alarm clock, I can't really explain it, but it really causes a problem because I almost lost my job a few times, either because my phone shut off and I missed very important calls or I sleep in...
  • Pros: easy to use, Features/Settings

  • Summary: I bought this phone 3 months ago and it stopped working the data services after 15 days, no internet, no international messages, no picture messages, no applications. So I took it to MetroPcs and they gave me a new one, well, good for them because it had the same problem 1 week later.

Could be a great phone

  • Summary: I got the Optimus M yesterday, an it keeps freezing on me and shutting down. I can't say how many times since just last evening it has shut down on me. Other than that it seems to be a good, solid built phone. It is big, I like that (though I wish it had a slide out qwerty) The price was good for the phone. I've read some reviews on other sites regarding this phone, and those who have a non-buggy phone love it. Those who have the buggy phone absolutely hate it.
  • Pros: Style/Design, Quality

  • Excerpt: This phone is a freaking nightmare!!! Freezes all the time, when it's not freezing it shuts off and restarts it's self!!! Will be going with another provider soon with better more sturdy and reliable phones and service!!! So far this is the worse phone I have ever had!!! AT&T or Virgin Mobile, here I come!!!
  • Pros: It makes calls.
  • Cons: Everything!!!

  • Excerpt: i purchased this phone for my son as a birthday gift and the first day he used it, it kept restarting it was fully charged but it keeps shutting off and restarting it might be a problem with just this phone because i haven't read any reviews that have the same problem so i will be returning it today. overall I'm very upset that my son couldn't enjoy his birthday gift.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: didnt have a chance to even use it
