Summary: For calling the Revere is great basic little phone. Durable and a size just big enough to be handled-pinched between ear and shoulder; small enough to pocket easily. Easy enough message recalling for voice. Texting is OK if you are comfortable with the T9 [abc, efg.} keyboard, multi-pressing. I almost never used the online capabilities with its, approx., 1 inch square screen. Navigation seems impossibly microscopic. The rest of the phone is a spot on, basic phone.

Summary: My elderly mother-in-law has macular degeneration and could no longer see the numbers on her old Samsung phone, so I purchased this Verizon LG phone for her. She can see the buttons on this phone and is once again able to use a cell phone.
Summary: this phone has performed just as advertised...really easy to activate and use. I'd recommend it to anyone not interested in living their whole lives on their phones, but needing all the basic functions.
Summary: Owned this phone for several months (before I knew any better). Only good thing about it is the battery life and service coverage. However, even for the price of just the phone, it's not a good bargain...but for the price of service, it's just a blatant rip-off. (I tried moving to Straight Talk's BYOP plan with this phone, but data wouldn't work due to a lock by Verizon).
Summary: My 82 year old mother finally agreed to get a cell phone and wanted something basic as she isn't interested in all the bells and whistles. I recently fell in the back yard breaking bones in my arm...I had my cell phone with me and was able to call for help. This seemed to be the deciding factor to my mother how useful a cell phone can be because she then agreed to let us get her a phone.
