Summary: Purchased this phone for my 87 y/o husband. Verizon does not offer a simple phone for elderly users. My husband was not interested in a "smart" phone. He wanted a simple phone, with speaker option (he has hearing aids in both ears) and camera. We searched and searched....and finally found this gem! His contacts are few - and it was easy to program. He loves the ease of use, he can hear conversations well, and he was able to figure the camera out fairly quick!
If only verizon loyalty was as durable as this phone!

Excerpt: As a sales person for a cellphone company, I see alot of this particular model of phone. The customers all had that initial rush of excitement at the durability. style, and features this phone offers. But as happens so often, that excitement was killed by the policies and lack of customer service at Verizon. So after admiring this phone over and over, each individual phone gets tossed into the recycling as I head out with the customers' new model. When will they learn?
Excerpt: this has beem my favorite phone that i've eveer owned. the LG vx8300 is quick to type on with the predictive text and loads quickly. it also has a sound "save" feature so you can download your own ringtones and save them (without paying!
Excerpt: I got this phone for my wife. It replaced an older LG which she hated. She was not happy that LG was what she ended up with, but she has come to like this new phone. It's sturdy and, unlike her old phone, does not go into "Driving Mode" at every opportunity
Gets the Job Done with Just the Right Amount of Functionality

Excerpt: As a busy manager of a small non-profit organization, this phone gave me what I needed - the ability to call and recieve calls. Not many perks such as music programs, etc. It does the job that I need it to do. If you are in the market for a phone that is simple and does the job, then this is the one for you regardless of age.
Excerpt: It is a great phone. The sound on the speekers music-wise are amazing. It can only take a 1g micro sd card, but that is plenty of space. It is a good size, not to big, but usable. I has frozen on me a few times, but restarting it fixes it. It is very personalizable, and quite durable. Beware the first one i got the head phone jack did not work, the second ones camera broke, but the 3rd is working fine and i have had it for almost half a year.
