Battery doesn't work

Elizabeth DeMarco, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: I was able to fully charge the battery in less than 5 minutes. I thought that it had come to me mostly charged, but as I used the phone, the battery died quickly. Fortunately, a friend of mine had an old battery, which works, but is black and doesn't match the phone. But it WORKS! I would appreciate a rebate for the battery.

It's a Slider!!!

Valerie Gresham, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: The phone it self was nice but I bought it for my daughter who texts a lot, so it lasted all of thirty days. lol The slider is most definitely not a good option for her. Now it's loose and she wants another. The overall service was excellent. The phone was in good shape to say it was used.

LG Chocolate

  • Summary: I like that the phone gets txt messages fast. I dont really like the way the battery is, it changes if you go from room to room. I decided to buy it because of the color and it is a LG phone. I heard LG phones from verizon is wonderful! I also got it because it was from verizon.

  • Excerpt: This phone is indestructible. Seriously. I dropped it loads of times (slippery, you need to put jewels or a case on it) and it never broke. It has been my first phone and I can't wait to replace it next month. It is very boring and the internet function, which it does have, sucks! My phone was once at 4 bars energy and dropped down to 2 when I want to find the definition of a word. It later popped back up to 3 bars.
  • Pros: indestructible, good battery, perfect basic phone, cool design
  • Cons: battery is sometimes unpredictable, internet is awful, boring, slippery, camera isn't all that great

My Very 2nd Phone

Lacie Burns, Phone Arena
1 November 2009
  • Excerpt: this was my second phone i loved it i only went through 2 of these phones but of corse the first time i was careless and was mad so when i stuck the charger in the charging slot i broke it. I have had this phone for at least 3 years. If you drop it alot then yes it WILL scratch but hey what phone is SCRATCH PROOF? I have had some awesome times with my phone. After 2 years you might want to replace it because i have had it for 3 years and now IT IS ACTING SO STUPID!
  • Pros: GREAT PICTURES, EASY TO FIGURE OUT, DURABLE, LEFT IT IN 1 INCH OF RAIN AND WHEN I DRIED IT IT STILL WORKED, EASY TO CARRY AROUND
  • Cons: FREEZES UP IN WINTER TIME

  • Excerpt: i had horrible luck with this phone! i had it for less than a year and thank god i had a one-year insurance policy. i went through 3 or 4 and all of them worked well for a week than eventually when i went to charge it, thhe charger would just fall out. if i shut it just a little harder than it would shut off, it would randomly shut off also. i would have loved this phone if it werent for the problems.
  • Pros: good features, nice design, good camera, the slide is nice
  • Cons: the battery charging, shuts off randomly, cannot be touched by watter what so ever

Good at first, not so much as it goes on

megansquared, Phone Arena
1 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Well, the color is one of the best parts of it. The "ice blue" is pretty. The phone itself really doesnt have one big problem, its more of a manufacturing/software problem. It also bounces on cement and does not break, which would kill some phones. The music player wasnt bad, but when you play it out loud it could be louder. In less than 2 years, my friend and I (same phone) have gone through 10 phones.
  • Pros: touchpad, color, textability
  • Cons: software, charger, you cant add words to the "word dictionary" (no "swears")

Um.

FruscianteLove, Phone Scoop
1 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Well, it was cool for a while. People would always tell me stuff like "hey, nice phone" and "cool phone man" and other garbage like that, and I was pretty proud of my little chocolate. Anyway, the screen fingerprints like nothing else, which seems to bother people, and it scratches with very little abuse. You also can't read it if you're in the sun.

  • Excerpt: I had the original chocolate right before the second gen came out and had switched it out 3 or 4 times for locking problems and problems with the mic. I then was able to get the second chocolate and had almost the exact same problems except it would completly shut off the signal every night for about 2 hours and I went through 6 of those. I hate the chocolate and my husband has even had to change his out twice because it was hard-locking while he was doing stuff.
  • Pros: great music player and I really like the touch sensitive buttons
  • Cons: bad signal strength, signal cuts out, crappy mic. phone hardlocks for no reason
