Reviews and Problems with LG VX-3400 / 3450 / UX-210
Showing 1-10 of 15
Compact and easy to use
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I am a lover of LG phones. I have had other brands but the LG is my favorite. The phone book is my favorite part of this phone. I have everyone name and number at my fingertips. I have no memory for this kind of thing so it really comes in handy. Setting different ring tones for different people is nice too. I have dropped this phone several times and it keeps on working.
Excerpt: Owned phone for 6 months. Love it! Wanted a phone without all of the whistles and bells and one that was small/compact. This replaced my old faithful StarTac. I use it only as a phone, no texting. Has great reception, very clear sound, and nice GUI. Wife has LG 3300 (great phone) and is looking to move up to either an LG 8300 or 8600. Daughter has a RAZR that has had nothing but problems. LG has earned our family's loyalty.
Excerpt: I'm glad to see US Cell and Verizon are discontinuing this phone. This phone has such a weak signal out in the country that it is virtually useless. I live 4 miles from a tower for my carrier and if I get 1 bar I am lucky. If I turn my head, the phone craps out.
clear if you can get a call
Dropped calls galore
Nothing inside buildings (even in the city)unless you practically hang out a window.
Excerpt: I just needed a basic phone and this phone is very good.
Signal & sound quality on the LG 3400 is great! However, in Minneapolis there towers are good, so it might be diff somewhere else.
The layout of the phone is simple and easy to use. It's a bought time there was a external screen on the 3xxxx series.
*No swaping covers
* I don't like the cover. It's easy to get your finger prints all over it.
Excerpt: I just got this phone for my son (7 years old) and it's perfect for him. It's a great basic phone for those that just want a phone and not an over converged device.
- Light weight
- Very easy to use
- Great reception (think Motorola E815 or LG8300)
- Nice sound quality (loud is loud)
- Internal and external displays
- It has exceptional restrictions built in, such as:
o restrict incoming calls to contacts
o restrict outgoing calls to contacts
o restrict inbound...
Excerpt: The UX-210 is perfect for basic use, however, it will randomly power-off. I have sent my phone to the retailer (US cell) and to the manufacturer for service and they have yet to fix the problem. I may have received a 'lemon,' but don't take the risk on this phone. You get what you pay for, it this case-you get nothing. It can't stay on so that you get your calls!
Excerpt: Got the 3400 in the mail about a week ago. It�s been rock solid without any problems. Reception is very good almost as good as my Nokia 3589i that got a signal anywhere. Another great thing is it has Lg�s operating software not that horrible VZW overlay. I hate the overlay. When I buy a Toyota I don�t want it to have the same exact interior as a Nissan. So when I by a LG phone I don�t want the same UI as a Motorola.
Excerpt: The VX3450 phone is in line with the base LG VX base phones(VX3200, VX3300) the structure is pretty much the same.
Ease of Use
None at this time
If you need a base phone and don't want all of the bells and whistles, this is the phone for you. The reason I didn't list the fact that Verizon doesn't list the phone in VTEXT so you can get ring tones is that if you go into VTEXT and tell it that you have a VX3300 the ring tones will work...
Excerpt: This phone is a dream to use: it's simply a phone; clear voice quality; excellent reception. I made a cross-country call on two bars and it sounded like a land-line!
Superb sound quality and simple to use.
Digital and analog service so you have a chance of getting calls if you're in the boondocks.
Monochrome front screen which stays visible ALL THE TIME. Virtually all the newer phones have color screens which turn off.
