Summary: Needed a cheap back up phone for my son. Im becoming very disillusioned by Virgin Mobile and am about to quit their company after 5 years. If customer service doesnt pick up, Im going else where. Im sure SPRINT took over which I had so many problems with them I couldnt stand them.
Summary: My Optimus after owned a year had a problem with only semi charging. Also often the phone would boot and when screen appeared the phone would turn off and had to be rebooted then turned off again. When the phone does this the back lights behind the four keys blink. I do not recommend this phone.
Pros: Good performance.
Cons: Charging problems, touch screen too sensitive - phone often dials #s with phone in pocket.
Excerpt: The Lg Rumor 2 is a fairly good phone. It contains all the necessary featured for someone looking to use basic functions of a phone, like calling, texting, sending pictures, listening to music. Not designed for higher functions like web-browsing or facebook applications, its a little too slow for that. Battery life is decent, usually having to charge it every 1.5-2 days with normal use, 1 day with constant use, and up to 3-4 days with minimal use.
Excerpt: I just want to say that I have the greatest two sons in the world. Up until about five years ago I did not know how to use a cell phone. I had learned how the pager my son had worked but when it came to phones I just used the old fashioned ones. You know the ones that are plugged into your house. Well both of my boys had cell phones and they said it was time I had one too.
LG Rumor 2- Not much of an upgrade, but still a good phone
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I had an LG Rumor for about 2 years and loved it. So when my phone was eligible for an upgrade, I chose the LG Rumor 2, thinking that I'd have much of the same capabilities as the Rumor. It's true that I do have many of the same capabilities, but I've found that the features I loved the most about the Rumor were not available on the Rumor 2. For instance, there's no Facebook option under messaging like there was on the older model. Boo to that.
Excerpt: If you want something sleek, and simple, then the rumor 2 is most likely the kind of phone you want. Now, I am not much of a techno - freak, so I can't say I've tried out all of the new phones. I've never had a touch screen, because they are complicated, and if you feel the same way, then this phone would be great for you. It's simple, you go to the main screen and everything you need to know is right there. The only problem may be is that the internet is a tad slow.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded to the Lg rumor 2 from a kyocera x-tc. I like that the phone has a slide out keyboard, but still has number buttons on the front plate, which the x-tc didn't have in favor of a bigger screen. Also, the keyboard on this phone is fairly large and the buttons aren't squished together like some phones I've had. The phone keeps a charge fairly long; I only need to charge it every 4-5 days depending on how much I use it.
Excerpt: I actually owned this phone through the service of Sprint and I was only able to use it for about five months. I had my phone insured in full and unfortunately had it stolen. This is really geared more toward sprint, but they made it an absolute nightmare to get it fixed. Before such problem, I did enjoy the full qwerty slide keyboard. Easiest phone to send fast texts! The camera is not high mps at all so it is really not worth even having.
