Summary: The LG VX 5600 is a lightweight Verizon phone originally introduced for the pre-paid market. The phone I bought for my daughter was intended for use on a family package. This caused a problem up front but our Verizon rep overcame by using an old serial number from a previous phone. The phone we bought on eBay did not have an electronic serial number. After the rough beginning the phone worked well for the first month. It has a nice feel in your hand.
Cons: Front screen cracked after 6 weeks without any noticable shock on my part. Kept it in my pocket. Best Buy rep said maybe I put it in my pocket with keys. I don't recall a warning against that in the documentation, but I could be mistaken.
"Lousy keyboard response, poor signal - sub entry-level"
2 July 2010
Pros: The battery life is the best quality of this phone. I've only had to charge my phone one full time in the two weeks I've owned it. The large buttons on the keypad and the shape and texture of the phone make it pleasant to touch.
Cons: Call quality has been unimpressive so far. I hear a delay at the beginning of calls more times than not and have to repeat myself frequently. The keyboard is pretty unresponsive. I often press END when aiming for the CLR button.
Pros: The Accolade is a good compact phone, it slips easily into my pocket, and once I got used to the interface, it was reasonably easy to use. It does mostly what you should expect from a cheap flip phone.
Cons: For starters the Accolade's overall design is too sleek, I have not only dropped it several times, but opening it can be a real pain. especially compared to other flip phones I have had. (Cons continued below since I ran out of characters)
Summary: I previously owned this product, but it was stolen, and wanted to get it again now that the mobile tv service had finally come to my coverage area. However, the call quality was not very good, my spouse said she couldn't hear me very well on her end and many times my end would drop in and out of reception.
