Excerpt: I've now put up with this phone for almost 2 years, and it's been a living hell the entire time. The only nice thing I can say about this phone is that it's effectively prevented me from destroying it. When I realized it was a piece of junk, I tried destroying it and getting Sprint to refund, but it appears that nothing short of a bursting shell will break it. The battery life is slim to none, and the battery often overheats and dies while plugged in.
Good product, not so good durability with nice features

Summary: This phone was purchased used and when activated, began losing the display within 3 days. It now happens about 2 to 4 times a week which requires a reboot to clear and regain function. Not sure yet if this is due to product quality or prior rough treatment. I plan on looking to ensure all system updates are done and possibly a OS upgrade as well.
Excerpt: Sprint had a Black Friday special on this phone and it was free for customers eligible for an upgrade. It came with Android 2.2, the new Sprint ID pack and it came in purple. That was enough reasons for me to take a chance on a phone that had just been released. I wish I had taken more time to read other reviews on this. It's definitely not a great phone. My first problem was that there is no flash on the camera! Major bummer there. The second problem was the battery.
Summary: I first got the phone and loved it! However, after having it a month, it has started freezing up not allowing me to call people and is being less than satisfactory. I previously owned the same phone but it got into a water accident, that phone never did this. However the phone I just purchased is. Really sad.
Summary: I recently upgraded my daughter from a Kajeet Samsung 2700 to the LG Optimus and was totally disappointed to discover that turning on the phone's wifi circumvents Kajeet's Smart Blocker controls. Wifi hotspots are easy to find (can you say, "McDonald's"?) and there's no way to close or password protect the phone's wifi functions, so if wifi is enabled your child will have unlimited access to everything available on the Web. I've spoken to 3 or 4 Kajeet reps about it.
Summary: I got this phone from the Sprint store just 2 months ago and I'm getting an exchange from the Sprint store. Pictures taken on this phone frequently have a blue or brown tint to them even in sunlight or plenty of natural light. I've started having problems with the touch screen "double tapping" when I try to type, swipe, or open or move apps. It will randomly call people and won't let me end the call. Apps are constantly crashing and having to be force closed.
Cons: It's so hard to type with the touch screen keyboard. I'm constantly messing up and having to go back. It's slow. I've had mine for about 7 months and recently it's had trouble charging. Sometimes it freezes up and I have to take out the battery
