Summary: thought that prepaid is what i have - found out that i have post pay and they will not allow the prepaid phone on a post pay account until it has been activated for 6 months - i can not crack the phone [yet ;-)]
Summary: I can get calls. That's it ...which really is all I needed. It took OVER a week to arrive. It is missing a door for the charging dock The charger sent didn't work. I had to get a new one It was full of pictures and texts... Oh well..
Summary: So the phone isn't that bad really. Nothing fancy, but if you just need talk and/or text it's fine. The design flaw is that it doesn't have a lock on the camera button when the phone is closed. I hear a camera shutter sound, I take the phone out of my pocket and it turns out there are 355 pictures of the inside of my pocket. This keeps happening! Ahhhh!!!!!!
six months as prepaid before this phone can be in your Verizon phone plan
15 September 2012
Summary: You may want to consider, if you want to "activate" this phone into your Verizon plan, that Verizon will not let you do that unless you use the phone 6 months as a prepaid, pay-as-you go. That's what Verizon told me September, 2012. Who has six months? Well, good luck to all of us, because the phone is very cheaply made, has slow camera action, and even a non-technical person such as myself can tell there is just no fun, no art, and no joy in using this one.
Summary: I own this cell phone for at least one year so here's the deal; Pros: -you can zoom in on the pictures you've already taken -it's durability, as in, I dropped this phone who knows how many times already and it still function great. -small size and can easily slide in your pockets -easy to flip open with one hand if you run your fingers through the sides Cons: -the buttons! they are slow for fast text'ers and it takes a long time to switch letters.
Summary: We've had a bunch of basic cell phones over the years and many have been LG flip phones. We have always found them to be a good value. However, we do not like the Accolade phones because of a couple of stupid features which have to do with style and performance. First, with this model, they changed the clam shell shape so that when it is closed, the bottom end (opposite the hinge) has no edges or features to grab to get it open.
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.
Summary: BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I had this phone for no more than 3 weeks and the top LCD screen broke. Verizon will NOT cover the from screen even if you have a contract with them, and even if you just got the phone less than 3 weeks ago! They basically insinuated that I "abused' the phone, which is total crap. I take meticulous care of this phone and have never dropped it. It always stays in my pocket.
