Pros It survived going through the hot water wash in the washing machine. The only ill effect was the outside, small screen seems to be shot.
Cons Short battery life.
Summary It's a great little free phone from Sprint.
Pros thin & light, basic features
Cons battery life and indicator, not easy to turn on speaker phone, staticky sound, phantom rings, few screensaver and wallpaper choices, etc etc
Summary see other reviews for battery issues... i had those problems too. i have had an LG3200 for years and love it, but it's getting old. thought I'd go with another basic LG, and am very disappointed. it's lighter and more compact, but that's about the only improvement i see (tho i haven't tried the bluetooth or voice dialing; both are new feature to me). display goes completely black only seconds after going to dim... why doesn't it stay in dim mode while phone is open? you need to press menu or other button to get it to relight. if you guessed 'to save battery life' you're right, but it ain't saving any battery life as far as i can tell. my old LG didn't go to black out, and its 2-yr old battery holds a charge longer than this brand new one does. i am not going to list all the other complaints.... see cons above. but for battery issues alone, i would NEVER recommend this phone. too bad, LG, i used to really dig you. no mas.
Pros Not a lot of extra functions that clutter up the menus. No crappy quality camera. Slim design, nice less is more style, blue tooth functionality, nice color scheme.
Cons Runs a little slow if you are a fast texter. Web access is pretty slow, charge port it a little tricky sometimes. Included wallpapers are lame.
Summary For those of us like me who have a camera and an ipod this phone is great. I just needed a phone that could be used for talking, texting, and blue tooth capabilities for driving. I have two cameras and an ipod so I don't need a phone to do those things. Plus, I can't stand the horrible quality of camera phone pictures.
This phone is a great basic phone and everything seems to work great. This phone even being entry level made me a fan of LG phones. I just put in an order for the Rumor since I find myself doing more texting that talking.
Great basic and easy to use phone.
Pros I have no complaints as far as basic cell phone features. Frankly, its a nice interface and easy to use hold. Its been pretty reliable and resistant to drops etc.
Cons The bluetooth is a joke. I wanted a means of wireless connection for my laptop, or to back up my contacts. no go either way, and a Sprint representative, after I had purchased it, informed me that it actually isn't capable of doing those things.
Summary the phone is a great basic phone. Don't think you are getting anything more than that with the bluetooth components.
Pros This phone is really easy-to-use and basic, which is exactly what I was looking for. The battery life last a long time.
Cons The battery indicator doesn't let you know the battery is low (shows full bars) until it's about to die. After approximately 2 months of use the mike quit picking up when I used the phone. The service center indicated that this is a common problem.
Summary The phone is okay if you want bare bones, but I'm pessimistic about its longevity. I will be getting another phone next week because my microphone doesn't work and I don't want to get into a cycle of replacing the same phone every 2-4 months.
