Pros External buttons inoperable when closed, (no spapshots in pocket or voice dialing in pocket). It's not a computer, but a serious phone to talk, schedule, alarm for appointments, recorder for handsfree notes, etc.
Cons 4 position nav. button, but only 3 can be programed, I would like the audio recorder to be put on one of these, the recorder cannot be moved, it takes 4or 5 steps to record.
Summary Don't take this out of the box & use it! Most peoples complaints, they use it as is, customize it, change the buttons to suit you. Ringtones aren't suitable or not loud enough? Make your own phonezoo. Biggest complaint about this phone, battery life. Mine lasted 24 hrs., now it lasts 4 or 5 DAYS. A simple cure, Go to the VERIZON store & have them download new SOFTWARE to your phone, if they argue, go to a different person or store, if they would check, they would see this phone has software issues, have them fix it. They treated me excellent. Most of the problems I've seen can be taken care of by going to the store & TALK. (Except the people who expect this to be a minicomputer for a dime - get real ) I'm sure if your new car sputtered you wouldn't drive it & cuss, you would take to the dealer, think! Wouldn't part with it. ps; Want a neat wallpaper? Take a photo of a blank BLACK object, put on your photo editor & put any text on it, I have my name in script. 1 of a kind.Battery charge doesn't last over a day ? Reboot ( turn off /on ) each time you charge your phone, charge will last 4 / 5 days. This will help other phones & devices

Pros All the features a cell phone should have. Camera is OK for a cell phone. Very light in weight.
Cons Speaker breaks up at high volume.
Summary If your objective is to make calls and have all the bells and whistles associated with a modern phone device such as memory of missed calls, memory of received calls, caller ID, and remembering contacts, then this is the phone for you. Plus, it can take a picture in a surprise moment. Reception is as good or better than any cell phone I have owned. Operational functions work as they should. No problems with battery or cell phone functions to date. There are additional options such as navigator etcetera. If you want to listen to music, then use an iPod. If you want to take a high quality picture then use a digital camera. None of the cell phones out there can match the ability of a basic iPod for MP3 music or a decent digital camera for photos.
Pros its a flip phone
Cons Not on straight talk wireless
Summary This phone is ok, speaking as somebudy who once used it. I have been through a couple of phones like it, and since I have settled on a Razr. I prefer the razr alot as it is offered with Straight talk wireless, it is sleek, and it gets better reception. Check out the Razr and Stragiht Talk from Walmart.
Pros (go to summary)
Cons fingerprints show easily............thats it.
Summary LONG battery life! i can go for days without charging, small enough to fit in my pockets, but not so small i forget its there. nice sound quality too. i've dropped this phone LOTS of times!!!! very durable!!!!! just this week i accidentally droped it in the water at the beach, and quickly dried it off, and viola...its perfectly fine! :]
Pros This phone is very easy to use.
Cons It holds a charge for only 12 hours.
Summary I previously owned an LG phone and was very happy with it. After 4+ years I finally broke my old phone. I went to the Verizon/Alltel store to replace this phone with one that is as similar as possible. I have been back several times because this phone dies after about 12 hours, even on days when I don't use it. After reading several revues from other customers who have been dissatisfied with 24 to 36 hour battery life, it is clear to me that this phone is defective. I'm going to go back and insist that they replace it.
