I'm Returning This ASAP

Catherine Conley, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • 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.

Don't do it!

  • Summary: Having owned several smart phones downgrading to save on data charges has been difficult to handle. Phone is decent, but slow in comparison to the competition.

For an easy-to-use phone, look elsewhere.

  • Excerpt: While the LG Chocolate Touch has a stylish design and some unique and appealing features, the phone might be best characterized by inconvenience. The layout of the phone is, perhaps, one of the most problematic components. For instance, the basic way to search for a contact entails hitting the small contact list button near the bottom of the screen, going through the letter-narrowing down process of finding the contact (a smart design, but it takes forever), and hitting...

If you are not a music person dont buy this phone

  • Excerpt: I had the Lg chocolate maroon color for a little over a year and let me tell you it was not what I expected.  The first month I had it well it was new and I was getting use to it but after that it was not what I needed it for.  The phone was acting up and it was not good for test messaging.  If you are into the music downloads and using it as an mp3 or so then it's good.  Sometimes when I was on the phone the person on the other end could not hear me.

Great Style, Super Sleek, but Wayyyyyy to Sensitive for my Taste

  • Excerpt: Verizon Account This phone is super cool, great features, and easy to create your own ringtones instead of having to buy them from verizon HOWEVER, the super sensitivity  makes this phone lose ALL appeal.  While creating a text message, if your finger ever slightly hits the end of the touchpad, you lose your entire message lickity spilt.  Phone often unlocks easily and calls people without your knowledge.

never buy a phone for its' color...

  • Excerpt: I originally bought the first version of Verizon's "Chocolate" phone because they offered it in "Chocolate Mint" which happens to be my very favorite color green. Aside from the fact that it was among the first "slide" phones, it also offered "touch" technology (pad, not screen). After 10 months or so, I began to get the deadly "white screen" and the phone would shut off for no apparent reason.

Chocolate phones are not so sweet....

debrim, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: The LG Chocolate was, at best, an ok phone.  You should know that the music capabilities (which is what "sold" many people on the chocolate) are REALLY not user friendly.  You have to use the ear phones they provide, and they are AWFUL.  Downloading your music, and the quality of sound, is not too bad.

Has some problems

eeyoresmom6, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I've only had 4 or 5 cell phones, but this one is definately my least favorite. My biggest problem with the Chocolate is that it shuts itself off. Not when it's rolling around in my purse ( that I could understand ), just sitting on my desk. A co-workers Chocolate does the same thing. Also, the buttons are extremely sensitive, so you really have to punch in very slowly and carefully. Such a pain in the butt for texting.
