Excerpt: I had an AT&T Go-Phone and since it was old and messing up I needed a new one. I didn't have a contract so I saved up and finally bought the LG Shine for around $400. 400 DOLLARS! I know, stupid move, but i wanted a good one. Right after taking it out of the box I regretted it. Multiple problems. I finally just bought another Go-Phone for $350 dollars less that blew the Shine out of the water. PROS: well...it was new.
Summary: I bought this phone because another LG phone which I had that lasted for less than a year the touch screen had abruptly stopped working. I liked the LG color scheme and graphics and this phone was cheap enough so I purchased it. This is a crappy phone. True the colors were good enough but the phone all of a sudden stopped charging. I took it to the T-Mobile store and they would not help me figure out what was wrong with it.
Summary: I bought this phone and have never been so ashamed of spending money for junk as i did this. i can barely hear it when it rings and i've got it set on 7, highest setting, too complicated, and overall worthless.
Summary: I have never written a review for anything I have bought on amazon until now. The phone came one day earlier than expected but it doesn't work. It won't turn on and I have had it charged for 24 hrs. If you take the battery out and plug it in it flashes the AT&T screen every 5 seconds. Other than that it doesn't work period. Im waiting to return it and see if they fix this "problem" I will update with another review when I get the OTHER phone.
Excerpt: This phone has a very nice design. Nice looking and looks very classy especially the silver one. But c'mon? The BATTERY is a JOKE men! I have to charge it everyday while my old Nokia is being punished with MUSIC PLAYBACK in Loudspeaker, VIDEOS, 30minutes of CALLS, UNLIMITED TEXTING, Snapping pics just to fool around but it can stand for 2days. This LG cu720 is a big big big DOWN for LG. And the Loudspeaker of this Phone is also a Big JOKE.
Pros: Good looking design, Nice CAMERA
Cons: POOR SOUND QUALITY, POOR LOUDSPEAKER, POOR KEYPADS!, POOR RECEPTION, NOT USER FRIENDLY, HEAVY AND VERY FRAGILE TO HOLD, UNCOMFORTABLE to PALM, NO 3.5 MM JACK, NO USB CONNECTOR, NO HEADSET WITH PACKAGE, NO SD CARD WITH PACKAGE, NO PROFILES TO SWITCH FROM SILENT TO LOUD, ALL IN ALL IT IS A POOR PHONE WITH RICH LOOKING BODY
Excerpt: I really don't like this phone. The keypad is too flat, the joystick is too sensitive and my phone only rings 2 or 3 times before going to voicemail. I can't wait to upgrade and get a better phone!
Excerpt: This phone was the biggest waste that L.G. could have made!!! the screen flashes on and off. it freezes. the buttons are so small that if find my self canceling messages or calls. i have the worst reception compared to another at&t phone. atleast a few times a day my phone will throw some crazy code as and excuse not to do something. that stupid joy stick thing is annoying!!!
Summary: I love the features of this phone - ID ringtones, great MP3 player and menus. Wonderful camera, with zoom and flash. Plays videos in landscape. But the reception is awful. I've gone into the hidden menus to turn off the 3G (which is supposed to help) but still get "no signal" messages while my husband standing next to me with his Motorola places calls and has great connection.
Excerpt: I have had the LG Shine for a little over a year and it sucks! I loved the phone for the first few months but after that it started messing up and get worse and worse as it gets older! The screen goes black all the time, it freezes, music and pictures take forever to load, HORIBBLE RECEPTION (where all other phones from at&t get service the shine will NOT), buttons are tiny, and joystick is super sensitive! I do like the camera, and look of the phone but thats about it.
