  • Excerpt: I have droped this phone way to many times and each time something comes off. The peices do go back on easily. The number buttons after a couple of months work as they feel like it. Sometimes you get double numbers when typing or not at all. I do like the recording feature. I have recorded several songs and put them as ring tones for no charge. I do not like the voice cammand feature. If I am upset it doesnt understand what I want which is not good in an emergency.

The LG VX5300 is just an average cell phone.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for an average run of the mill cell phone with not too many bells and whistles, this might be the one for you.  It's very functional, and does the job, but doesn't go above and beyond the ordinary in features.  The battery has a nice long life between rechargings and it's relatively small. A good phone for everyday.

Overall great LG VX5300 phone!

  • Excerpt: The LG VX5300 phone is pretty good overall.  The worst thing about it is the poor quality when talking/listening on speakerphone.  The battery stays charged for a long time.  The photo quality is decent and the rings available for this phone are good quality.  Thumbs up for a good, free phone from my cellular provider.

LG VX5300 works great but is noising turning off and on

  • Excerpt: My LG phone has great features for non-techie people - easy to read, large enough buttons, great sound, great video. The flip-style suits me. The only problem I have is the loud noise it makes when you turn it on and off.

Not a very exciting phone with a very annoying feature.

  • Excerpt: This phone will tell you when you have a missed call. This phone will tell you when you have a new voicemail. This phone will ask you if you'd like to check your voicemail now. BUT, don't bother to choose yes--that feature simply sends you back to the original empty screen. Very frustrating! It's not hard to dial *86, but why ask if you'd like to do something if you won't be permitted to do it?

Serves its purpose

  • Excerpt: This phone is fairly easy to use. It can be a little tricky sometimes with erasing voice mail and calling back missed calls, but other than those items it is a fairly decent phone. It is silver in color. I have seen quite a few of these being used by other people, both strangers and aquaintainces. I can also be a phone that is easily lost due to the number of other people who have them.

Great choice for someone looking for just enough extras.

  • Excerpt: This is my first phone, and I have not regretted my choice. This phone has just enough extras to keep the user satisfied. With a camera, built in tone downloader, and other things, it's great for everyday use. The only cons I have is that it doesn't get good reception in some areas of my house, and you cannot use recorded sounds as ringtones. However, I love the fact that I can download ringtones right from my phone.

Limited technology for a new phone

  • Excerpt: The LG 5300 is a basic phone and if you don't want any bells an whistles than this is the phone for you. Of course one has to ask, why would LG bother putting a camera on a phone that is only VGA these days.  On top of that the technology for data transfer is first generation and incredibly SLOW. For a new phone it didn't make any sense. I had better technolgy in an older samsung phone, which Is what i ended up using after I returned this phone 2 weeks after buying it.

OK phone, but does not seem durable, good for a light user.

  • Excerpt: We own four of these phones.  They work ok.  The promo was buy one get up to 4 free.  We got two phone for our two older kids.  Mine was shutting off for not apparent reason for awhile, Verizon looked at the phone, did some updates and it has only happened once since.  My dd's phone buttons are wearing out, hard to push, it also has been shutting off and turning back on whenever she delets a text message.  Will be taking it into Verizon to see what they will do.

Great phone for a cheap price.

  • Excerpt: Really great phone for the price.  I got it for $1 on sale and I haven't had any problems with it.  It holds a charge for about 3 days and I can hear very clearly on it.  I really love the features on it.  It's not very complicated to use and it's not overly full of stupid applications that I'll never use.  The only complaint I have is that it's VERY easy to get online with it.
