LG Remarq is a decent phone if you don't have a data plan
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was eligible for an upgrade through Sprint and at the time just had unlimited texting for 'perks'. It was the only phone in the free category at Best Buy that wasn't a touchscreen and the buttons didn't feel cheap. I used it for about 35 days and then the rest of my family in the family plan decided to upgrade to the full data plan. Ugh, I felt stuck with this phone because the cut-off for returning the phone was 30 days. Why didn't I like it?
Excerpt: I have had this phone for about 4 months or more. I mainly use it for talking, texting with occasional facebook application usage. I do not use it for music or a lot of internet access. This phones keypad works fine for me and it is a standard QWERTY. If my fingernails were longer, i definitely would have more trouble typing due to the small keys. The phone looks pretty nice and I do like the large screen.
Excerpt: We currently are using the LG Remarq as loaner phones....and thank goodness all they are is loaner. personally, my husband and I can't stand these phones. yes, they are functional....but as what? If you were to use it as just a phone then it is a little too complicated for just that. There is not just a number key pad to dial off of and you have to use the shift button to type in numbers.
Excerpt: I recently got the LG remarq cellphone, and im very happy with it. I dont need a fancy phone, just one to call or text, so this was a good choice. it came free with my husbands phone, which was a good bonus, and i have had no problems with it. its slide out full qwerty keyboard is good, although the buttons are a bit small, and switching between numbers and letters can be annoying as you have to push a button before each number you type, but other than that its pretty...

Pros: Never have a problem connecting to the network or typing text. Great keypad response. Nice interface. Colorful display.
Cons: Entering phone numbers can get tedious as the keys are small. The calendar is much less function then calendars from older model phones. No countdown timer which is something I liked to use. 3-way calling has no functionality past connecting and joining.
Excerpt: I bought the phone a couple of days. it was from Metro PCS so i dont really ahve any contract. but now am realizing that it doesn't download most of the applications like ebuddy, getjar etc. none of that is supported on the phone.
