Summary: I bought this phone and went back to pre-paid after I recently cancelled my line through Verizon Wireless. BAD MISTAKE! I bought this phone, but wasn't able to activate it and use it until I was able to cancel Verizon. You get what you pay for... I went into Best Buy and I had them port my cell phone number to the Optimus. They told me it would at least be 4 hours minimum.
Pros: Cheap phone with cheap monthly payments No contract Internet usually won't work Half the time you can't even make a phone call None of the apps work very often The texting doesn't even work all the time (needed more than 250 characters under Cons)
Cons: SLOW as heck! Randomly closes apps/turns off/freezes Drops calls more often than not Comes with lots of dumb apps that you can't unistall Sometimes texts take several hours to send/receive!!! They Swype always chooses the dumbest non-words imaginable
Cons: EVERYTHING! Slow, freezes, turns itself off constantly. Hate camera. Have to always take the battery out and put it back in again. Always a problem with messaging, contact list, battery life. So many issues I can't even remember them all!
Pros: My phone bill is cheap (Virgin) and I love the Android OS.
Cons: It's December, I purchased my 1st LG Optimus V from Best Buy in June. In October, I was out, the battery completely dead, got home to charge it, wouldn't charged. Now it's December, happened again. Also constantly crashes.
