Summary: This phone replaced my wife's ancient cell phone, it was purchased because it was T-Mobile compatible and I already had an LG L45C that I loved. This one is very similar in operation, so it was easy for her to learn. The LG P509 has great features, and using the web is quick - good on 3G but really fast on wi-fi. Battery life is better than expected; size is just right for us, not real big like an iPhone, but screen size is fine for pics and videos.
Summary: Excellent phone for the price. I upgraded the OS from xdadevelopers to icecream sandwich. But if you loose your original OS then its not possible to find LG radio application. So beware of that. Otherwise phone is very sturdy and fast enough for day to day usage.
it works well and its a good phone for a great price

Used phone suffered LG headphone jack failure. Otherwise great machine!

Summary: Great phone, hated to return it. Suffered the LG headphone Jack bug. Stuck in HP mode so can only use speaker phone to call. Great text & web, but sometimes you need a phone at your ear. Web fixes for HP jack abound, but none worked. Too Bad I liked this ting.
Summary: LG Optimus runs android operating system and performs functions I need. 3.2 megapixel camera has good, not great resolution, but easily focuses. Not much internal memory, but for the price, I don't mind getting micro SD chip. Touch screen is resposive most of the time, but sometimes a little slow, never to the point of being a big hassle.
Not too bad of a phone, especially if you find a used deal under $40! :)

Summary: I've used this phone for the past year- it's a basic android capable of running a lot of different apps, however, it does fall short if you are a "gamer"- You can run (NOT ALL SOME FACTORY, find them on PlayMarket) FB (factory), Ebay, PayPal, Pandora, PicsArt (a great free pic editing app!), free music, ringtone editor apps, reads pdf's, calenders, widgets & more.
