Summary: I read the reviews on this and assumed that some of the negative ones were from people that did not know how to operate cell phones. I do know how to operate a cell phone and even took this one to a local Verizon dealer. They gave me no direct answer but for the most part said this phone would not work with my existing plan as it had been advertised. The only way to have possibly made this phone work would to have been to change my plan which I had no desire do.
Very dissatisfied with the durability of the phone!!
5 November 2013
Summary: I bought this phone for my wifes Grandmother. The other day she dropped the phone for the first time. The screen fell off as though it were glued on. I am very disapointed since she has only had the phone since April. The phone had worked well previously but as far as durability I would not recommend this phone.
Summary: I must say that my disappointment lies not with the phone itself...but, that this phone was a prepay and Verizon would NOT activate without some lame excuse of wanting me to pay 6 months prepay first. I was furious. I lost the box and information or I would return it to sender! If you are considering purchasing a phone in this manner..I caution you that it may come up as a prepay. Company will NOT activate without charging you!!!
Summary: Bought this phone thinking that "This product has been extensively tested, is certified to be 100% functional, and ready for activation"as quoted from there product page which should mean that I could use it on any verizon line, only to find out that it is a pre-paid phone and can not be activated on my account until its active for 6 months, what a waste of time!
Summary: I can't rate the phone itself since I'm unable to use it, but I would advise people to be very careful dealing with this vendor (PagePlusDeals). The first phone that they sent me stopped working after 2 days and I asked for a replacement. They did send a replacement without any hassle although it did take twice as long as promised.
Summary: Two things I wanna say: (1) I paid for 2 brand new LG VX5600 phones for me and my wife. Received 2 brand new phones but one had a bad speaker. I asked for a replacement which they were really quick about. So that part I was pleased. But the replacement that came was obviously a refurbished phone. It had scratches/marks on it and either the phone itself was obviously used, or it was refurbished with obviously used covers.
Summary: The phone itself works well although I had to take it to Verizon to have it activated to my account. It kept wanting to drop off my old text messaging plan. There was no manual in the box. The back of the phone was scuffed. It was obviously used or a refurb It was fulfilled by Dealscaly Had it been a new phone, then it would get a 4 or 5 star review.
