Summary: Well you get what you pay for , This phone is so used and abused plus it came with no back cover so that the battery is exposed and it is really scratched up, I have not try'd to see if it works yet I am afraid to.
Summary: I had this phone in 2009 and MAN i REALLY loved it. I put the 4GB card in it and loaded it to the max with music. The only thing I really can say is an issue is the battery. I didn't buy the extended battery so I cannot attest to how it holds. The sound quality is far superior then the last Chocolate (8500) it worked awesome. I did have 3 PHONES, because I accidentally killed the first two. I got the first device wet 2 days after getting it.
Summary: Terrible phone. I had this phone for about a month and the track wheel popped off and the number pad stopped working. The phone was built for music but you cant download music becuase it runs through verizons vcast(which is discontinued) even if you were able to get music the head phone jack is two small for any US headphones. This sucks because this phone was geared tward music.
Summary: I love the phone however because it is an older phone it doesn't get ideal service like newer phones do. I have found that I don't get the same level of service when driving certain places that I used to have full bars with a newer phone, also service is not a reliable when in buildings. Overall it is a good phone as long as you stay in an area that has a lot of cell phone towers.
Summary: Was not as advertised The phone was advertised as new but it is not. The camera lens is cracked. The phone did not come in LG VX8550 factory packaging but a white box with a sticker label. Feel like I was rooked.
Summary: I am returning this phone as soon as I can find a new one. Functionality-wise, it stores each text message individually and anytime the phone slides shut you lose a text in progress. There is no way to adjust this setting, I looked. Also the phone is broken. Half the time the face buttons (left, right, speaker, clear) don't work and if you press the clear button twice (accidentally or because it didn't work the first time), a Verizon app ad shows up.
Summary: I love this phone. It shipped within twelve hours of ordering it and I received it in two days, it even came two days early. It said it was like new but I could swear it was new. It was perfectly packaged and came with the battery and charger but sadly no manual of any kind. I fooled around with it though and got it figured out in no time and I'm loving it. It's an excellent phone a I highly recommend it to everybody. WTG seller for doing such a great job.
