Pros less chance of butt dialing... light and compact but seemed to be sturdy as well... it was relatively intuitive to navigate
Cons the phone would make calls & text out but it did not accept incoming calls or text... huge negative factors in performance & inability to accept the reality from both LG (the manufacturer) and Kroger I-wireless (the Seller and Service Provider)
Summary so this is the thing... i have a 15 year old son that i think needs a cell phone ... and believe me when i tell you trying to choose one that has what you need and isnt charging for what you dont need is a task in and of itself... at any rate i shop a Kroger on a regular basis and one of the things they seem to be attempting to do is offer a lot of disparate services and give you points that reduce the price on each of them.... gasoline and cell phone service for example...
i bought a phone for my son in December of 2013 and here in mid February I have paid for a month of service, i have paid for the telephone and yet my son has no service... when the first line " "customer service person" couldnt get it to work i asked for a supervisor he told me i would have to wait 24 hours for a return call... given it was 7pm ... i told him you cant tell me they are all in a meeting at this time.... you cant tell me they have left first line "CSA" there alone to run the company get one on the phone... again he says there are none.... so i hang up and ask for a supervisor and get one... he gives me mumbo jumbo that ends up in wait and i will call you back next day and the phone will work
two days later i call back and the phone does not work.... i ask to speak to a manager and angie is put on the phone she goes through the same provisioning that the other supervisor does and still the phone doesnt work... the problem is it will make calls but not receive them.... i am told that cannot happen but clearly it is....
i am asked to contact the manufacturer of the LG Remarq and they tell me if i pay to send them the phone they will take a look at it... i am not paying to fix a phone that was supposed to work new
back on the phone with Kroger Iwireless they say they will send a will call tag for it and send a new phone and angie assures me she is going to keep an eye on this so nothing further goes wrong.... several weeks later still no phone....
i call Kroger Iwireless again ask to speak to a manager only to find out that the "manager" with whom i spoke to was a supervisor and so i am passed to another supervisor who tells me the will call package was ordered but somehow stuck in the system and she is going to release it when will i get it i ask she says no longer than 5 to 7 business days
here it is 7 business days later and there is no will call tag... i call Kroger Iwireless and in order to speak to a manager i have to wait 24 business hours for them to get back to me... why should i have to wait for anything when i have already paid for a month of service i could not use ... i have already paid for a phone that i could not use and i have already fiddled around with their incompetent management team from day one.... the technology sector has not been known for being awash with customer service skills but this is beyond the normal bad service... i told them if they made we wait for a member of management after all the waiting in addition to the lack of service i would use my wait time to be very public about my experience with Kroger I wireless https://krogeriwireless.com/shop/phones
Pros key pad and that's it
Cons Dropped calls, terrible camera,
Summary This phone is not the greatest. The camera is terrible. I have been getting a lot of dropped calls and it is a huge down grade from the lotus and the lotus elite. It's a very basic phone.
Cons red number keypad all but impossible to read in low-light or even with illuminated keys in dark.
Summary The tab alt type keys are not intuitive caps, function seems awkward. Red keys was clearly bad design. Call me next time. I'll help you guys out with a common sense design.
Pros Love it except that it is NOT compatible with Spring Naviigation as I was lead to believe by this article. Now I gotta return it and get something that is since I just moved to a new city.
Cons This phone is NOT compatible with Spring Navigation.
Summary Good for texting and internet use.
