Summary: I bought this for my wife. She uses SMS a lot and this phone rec'd great reviews on CNET as a texting phone. It is good for that. It is problematic in other areas. The phone has to be unlocked to turn off an alarm that is waking you up at 5 AM. We can find no way of adding a custom ring tone (without downloading it) as we've done on other phones. Even with the phone locked, my wife experiences many "butt dials".
Xenon is a good phone if you like all the extra emmenities.

Excerpt: LG Xenon is a good phone. It's dependable and handy with all the extra stuff you can do with it like Camera, Keyboard, Calender, Alarm Clock, Stop Watch, and MP3 player. The only complaint I have is that its just too easy to accidentally start a unwanted call or application by an accidental touch of Xenons touchscreen.
Excerpt: This phone has lots of features I enjoy. Also lots of features I never use. AT&T doesn't tell you you will be charged for data usage for shopping for ringtones and such through there store. I honestly think if you are on AT&T websites you shouldn't be charged data time. I wish it came with more games. Also would like the battery to last longer. The phone lasted 4 months before I had to request a replacement. The screen stopped turning & it began shutting off on its own.
Excerpt: This phone is very good for anyone. It has many features that let you access your email and accounts on the internet. There are many tools such as a calculator, stopwatch, tip calculator, alarm, and many more. I enjoy having this phone because it is very user friendly. The cons would be that it can sometimes freeze for no apparent reason. Other than that, i would really recommend buying this phone.
Excerpt: The LG Xenon has a nice slide-out design with big enough buttons for easy texting, this is perfect since I send about 500 messages daily. The touch screen is really nice as well as the ability to put notes on the screen for reminders. One problem with the phone is that the buttons chip off for some reason, probably from excessive usage, and it freezes once in a while.
The Cell phone camera feature is fun but not for quality

Excerpt: This phone works fine for the casual user once I started needing to use it all of the time due to starting my own business and working full time and being a wife and mom it became not as user friendly. The phone gets hot if it is used for along time. My kids like it because they can see pictures of themselves when we are out and about and they often ask to have their pictures taken.
Excerpt: I bought the LG Xenon from Amazon.com for just a penny. I read the reviews and thought that it was the right phone for me. It has a camera, full slide out keyboard, which is great for texting, and I can set songs as ringtones. However, after the first couple of months of regualr use, not being dropped, thrown, damaged, e.t.c, my phone started to freeze up during random times. This is the only problem that I have had during the several months that I've had this phone.
