Great for the intermediate user that's not ready for smartphone, EVEN USED!
20 April 2013
Summary: I 'rebel the smartphone' and this phone is one of the reasons! It simply makes it unnecessary to upgrade especially being a basic user and occassional advanced. The memory card option (which you have to set up through a data connect source-but is worth it) makes up for the limited space on the device itself. I LOVE the ability to have an animated screensaver! Like the look and durability.
Summary: The battery does not hold a charge for even a day. But other than that the phone works good. The phone was purchased the other phone I had was just like this one and the screen broke while I had it in my pocket. So since the battery is still good I changed the battery so it would stay charged.
Great buy and product condition was just as it was stated.

Summary: I purchased this phone to replace the same type phone I have had for several years. It is much easier to operate and use than any of the iphones and most other smart phones. It does take a little patience with texting since you have to use the key pad but overall it is not bad. I have several phones for work I carry with me also an one is an Iphone 4 so for personal use I prefer the LG Shine.
Ive had my LG Shine for almost 6 years & never a problem.

Excerpt: What can I say? It is a little outdated at this point... Ive had it for almost 6 years & Ive never had an issue with it. Ive dropped it * it has never fallen apart. Ive used the internet, email, texting, videos, mp3 and all of the features work great. My 9 year old has used it & it's still in great shape. I still have the original battery & works great. simple, durable little phone. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: I have this CU720 phone (or LG shine) from AT&T for about two years. I had this phone unlocked and was using it under the T-mobile network. I do not treat my phones very nicely (I break phones very quickly) and this phone was very durable as I dropped it countless times. The camera (2 megapixel) has pretty good quality and also has a flash built into it, which is very useful when I want to take picture in the dark. The operating system is easy to use with the manuals.
Excerpt: I got this phone as a replacement for my iPhone 3G, which abruptly stopped working. Of about 10 phones I've owned, this is my second favorite. I don't have a need for much more than text messaging and phone calls, so I've only used the more basic functions of the phone. The call quality is always good and it gets a signal in areas where my iPhone never had one. The keys can be annoying at times when texting because of how small they are.
Great if you like watching the scenery around you on the screen.

Excerpt: Overall, this is a good phone. It's not extraordinary, but it functions fine and has okay calling quality and text-messaging ability. It has a great voice command tool that I use regularly when i'm too lazy to actually search for a contact or number. It has a very convenient mirror when the screen turns black, for any ladies who want to quickly check their appearance.
Excerpt: I am super excited to write a review on the LG Shine, model cu720. I have owned and operated this cell phone for six months now. The screen on the phone, once the backlight has completely gone out, serves as a functional mirror. That of which is great for the ladies wanting to check out their make-up. This is one of the features that attracted my attention to begin with. This "slider" phone is great because of the large memory load it has.
Summary: I bought this phone because my last one was worn out after four years of use,it was also an LG phone but an older model. This phone was very affordable i paid less then $60 for a brand new one,it has all the features i need and more i will probably never use.The navigation control was a little tricky at first but after i got the feel of it,it was no problem to use.The key pad is small but manageable.This phone is stylish and of durable construction.The ring is not as...
