"Awesome phone except for some issues"3.5 starson by BOBinNC
Pros: Nice design and features, solid construction, great touchscreen
Cons: escalating ringer, need to repeatedly unlock phone
Summary: This is a beautiful well constructed phone and is far better than any I've seen or owned from Alltel. I would rate it a 9 or 10 except for the issue others have mentioned with the escalating ringer. I continually miss calls and texts and there is no way to disable this feature. Unless you have the phone in your pocket at all times (and don't listen to loud music or spend time in noisy places) it's a major problem. I called LG and was told there was NO chance they would offer any software updates or make changes in the phone in the future to address this problem.
Another annoyance is that you have to unlock the phone whenever you are inactive for 14 seconds, which gets old fast. There should be a way to disable this feature also, or at least to lengthen the time before it relocks.
As much as I do love the phone I will be returning mine and probably leave Alltel when my contract ends for a company with a better phone selection.
