Summary: I have this phone through Verizon. It was the best "feature phone" (not smart phone) that they offered two or more years ago. I have big hands and fingers and originally had a problem of the phone slipping out of my hands like a wet bar of soap when trying to slide open the keyboard, but I have since mastered it. I absolutely love how small this phone is. It fits in any pocket and I can even close my hands entirely around it.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings
Summary: I've had this phone for two years now, and I've got to say it's the best phone I've gotten so far, even though it's not saying much. The touchscreen works pretty well, and it took very little to get used to. My friends can't use it well, though, since the screen is pressure-sensitive instead of heat-sensitive. The keyboard is a bit small, so unless you have pretty small fingers, you're going to occasionally jumble many characters in one word.
Summary: I wasn't able to delete draft text messages. I would select erase all and nothing would happen. Had my phone for less than two months and the screen froze. I wasn't able to power it back on or off. I would only see the LG logo on the screen.
Summary: Phone drops calls constantly. The touch screen software does not work properly: almost impossible to scroll the list. It picks first touch as the selection and changes screen. Reception is very poor even with a full bar service.
Summary: I've had mine for about 2 years, it was great the first year and then the problems started. It would randomly power itself off even after being on charge the night before. The screen has its own problems, touch the send button or replying to a text and it often wouldn't work requiring 7 or more tries to get it to respond.
Summary: With it's often completely unresponsive touch screen and slow, cumbersome interface, every time i use this phone, i can't help but think the designer shouldn't have bothered. Using even the most basic functions is an exercise in frustration. Attempting to press one touch-screen button often means inadvertently pressing the one next to it (i.e. hitting "Send Message" ends up placing a call, etc).
Summary: So, this phone doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles, but it has been a decent phone for the last two years. I've always kept this phone in a case, because it feels too slippery without one, and it's extremely sturdy. I've dropped it a few times (usually just falling off my lap or something like that), but it doesn't have a ding on it. I also use it with a screen protector.
