Pros Easy texting, nice screen
Cons Customer service
Summary The LG Rumor Touch is a great starter smart phone. The Internet was fast. The pictures were good (make sure you turn off haptic feedback if you don't want blurry pics). But the customer service associated with the phone was terrible. Tried to port my phone number over from T-Mobile and I had to call three times and the third time after waiting for a half an hour, customer service hung up on me. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. I really liked the phone, but I think that if you really want this phone go to Sprint.
Pros The phone is very well designed to annoy you
Cons To save something, you have to confirm 4 times and if you don't, it just deletes it. When you receive a second phone, and you swap, you either have to hung up on both, or none (ridiculous). When you receive a phone call, there is no option of rejecting it
Summary This phone is well designed to annoy you.
Pros I really like the touch screen and the ability to calibrate the touch screen. I am fairly impressed with the NetFront built in browser (not too amazing, but better than most built in I've had in the past). I like that it plays movies.
Cons Memory is easily overloaded. Very few apps available from Virgin Mobile-zero games (although you can install 3rd party apps with the hack enabled). Customer service from VM is terrible over the phone-Email is the only way to really get things done!
Summary I've had this phone for several months now, and I love it. However, it was really disappointing to me when I found out that there were so few apps available from Virgin Mobile. It was also locked down to make it so you could only buy wallpaper and music ringtones from Virgin Mobile as well. I started really liking the phone when I cam across Danatheteacher's "LG Rumor Touch Hack Central" website at Hubpages.com. She explained how to install 3rd party apps, get custom ringtones and wallpapers. This has made this fairly "inexpensive" phone (when you look at sticker prices for other companies) a true gem. Virgin Mobile's replacement plan is excellent as well. My first phone had the top right corner touch sensor break down, and after emailing them, they shipped me a new one for free. They handle all the warranty service, which was really nice.
http://hubpages.com/profile/danatheteacher is where I got all that other information.
Pros The screen resolution is beautiful. The graphics are a solid performer. I love having the ability to move thing aroung in the menu on the home screen. The MP3 player works great and has good volume without the headphones attached.
Cons The only drawback I found was getting my music from my Windows PC to my phone. No one told me I had to download a wma to mp3 converter into my PC to convert all my tunes first. I found a good one on this website: FreeRip. Check it out.
Summary I would recomend this phone to anyone, especially if they never had a smartphone before. I was greatful for the video summary on this site as it gave me some tips on how to work my phone. The manual included did not tell me about the mp3 conversion issue, that took the advice of a friend. The bluetooth and the connection to my PC sub programs worked very well out of the box. All in all, a really pleasing phone to use!!
Pros Camera is great. $25 plan. Great 5 row keyboard. Great web browser.
Cons Nothing at all.
Summary Great text-messaging phone with nice features. Although not as feature rich as the LG enV Touch, this phone is great for texting and nice for budget-minded customers looking for a touchscreen phone with cheap plans.By the way, the default browser is kind of bad. If you want a better browser, you can download the Opera Mini browser for free. You can download it from your phone.
