Phones good just have to deal occasional freezes, carry your charger around

Summary: Bought this product after switching from a sprint monthly plan. I recently had a HTC Hero and i liked it for the most part and thought this was as similiar as I could get. At first I really liked the phone but after a month the battery life starting dying quite fast and the phone kept freezing. I loose internet conection quite often and have to restart the phone. There is times when i will be pressing one button but something other than what im pressing will open.
Summary: I bought this used from TopHatPhone. As an Android phone, it works well enough to play modern games like Angry Birds Space without lag. With me web surfing, texting, and playing games, battery life lasts a day or two, which isn't bad. I'm not a fan of on-screen keyboards in general as they are pretty cramped. It doesn't have a ton of internal memory, so I find I keep having to move apps to the SD card or delete apps to install stuff.
Summary: Ok before I write this review I just want everyone to understand Im a stay at home mom and we do not have a home phone. So I just really needed some thing simple to throw in my purse and use in case of emergencies when Im out. At that point I wasnt really big with using my cell phone for anything other than phone calls and I was rarely doing that and AT&T was killing me with they're 2 year contract and overages.
Good phone makes you wonder why you did not get sooner ;-)

Summary: Moving on from the LG rumor touch I have to say my third smart phone (after the droid 1 & motorola triumph)is something I am enjoying very much. I was in the market for a smart phone and being with virgin mobile I tried the motorola triumph which ended up being a big mistake (so i returned that phone). LG Optimus V turned out to be better The Good: Has a nice camera for taking pictures during the day or with lots of light 3.2 mega pix. nothing special but handy.
Summary: I wanted to try a Android phone, but didn't want to spend a lot of money out of the gate. The price I paid was in my range. I wasn't crazy about not having a regular keyboard. But once I got used to the swype key feature. I don't miss the keyboard. The voice to text feature is fine, but you have to speak clearly, and be in a quiet place. This phone surpassed my expectations. Still learning all the features that it has.
Summary: I had to give up my blackberry and wanted another smart phone without a contract. I read the reviews and decided this would be a good choice and I was right! I like the touch screen-it doesn't feel too slippery like some others. The phone is a good size-fits in the palm of your hand and not too bulky or ridiculous if you ever have to put it in your pocket. The battery life is excellent compared to the blackberry.
Excerpt: Sometimes though it gets the word wrong and it can take forever to type out a text. The Android keyboard isn’t much better though. Overall, this is the best phone that Virgin Mobile offers. It goes decently fast on most applications and the Android Market is amazing. It does lack in a lot of areas, the battery only stays charged for a few hours when it is being heavily used, and it has its other shortcomings. It is a good phone though.
I got it for $50, I don't think I'll ever get a better phone deal.

Summary: I picked this up for about fifty, so maybe my review is a little biased. Prior to this phone, I had in succession a LG Imprint, then a Rumor Touch, then a Rumor 2. I paid 60, 90, 50, respectively. None of them hold a torch to this phone. My only complaints are lack of physical keyboard, because I am clumsy and have thick fingers, and am too lazy to get a better keyboard app, and battery life could be better, or maybe my internet surfing browsers should be exited when I'm...
Pros: Nabbed this off VM's website for $65 on Xmas sale. So far I've been extremely pleased with the phone with a few exceptions. I use the $45/1200 minute plan. I threw out my Charter home phone service after I bought this phone.
Cons: Stock browser stinks as well as stock SMS. Lots of bloatware. Not a super fast phone but what can you expect with a phone this inexpensive? Def. needs larger SD card or internal memory limits will drive you nuts.
