Pros simple design and easy to use
Cons drops calls, poor quality, only lasted a year
Summary i had this phone for a year, and I used it alot, it was an ok phone, no features, but it got the job done. After 11 months of having it though it randomly turns itself off. I wish now that I would have just paid the extra for a nicer phone rather than having this one break on me!
Pros antenna-less, vivid screen
Cons 200 address book limit
Summary why this phone? replaced my samsung vi 660 until my pcs contract runs out--getting tired of sprint B.S.
voice quality is fine, (better on the vi600 imho) and so is signal strength. but sprint being sprint already had a view dropped calls in known dead spots around san diego and new york city. texting is easy as is inputing phone numbers.
major complaint is lack of sim card slot so i dont have to reenter phone numbers, but dunno of any sprint phone with this function. supposedly, stores will program your new phone if you give them your old to extract the numbers from.
pcs vision "works" but is slow as was before with the vi660.
i had personalized images and ringers on my vi660 using the focus uploader on sprintusers.com, but i havent had success yet on this phone. will have to try again.
basic PIM functions: calc, notepad, calendar, voicememo and alarm are all dandy and expected. The "quick alarm" (alarm in 10, 30, 60min , etc) is a plus that the vi660 didnt have.
i miss the voice dial/voice commands of the samsung vi660, but the LG vi 125 has a trainable voice dial of 30 entries.
In sum, while basic, this phone should last me until my contract runs out so I can finally get a killer phone without having to pay an arm and a leg.
Pros Internal antenna, great sound, long battery life
Cons No camera or extras
Summary I've had this phone for over 6 months, and it's great if you want a cell phone to be what it is - a phone. I haven't had any dropped calls with the internal antenna. The clarity in both earpiece and speakerphone are superb. The battery last forever. Again, this is just a phone, so no real extras. If you are looking for something with extras, look elsewhere.
Pros small, good reception, great speakerphone, and lightweight
Cons Serious software bugs
Summary I recently purchased one of these phones. There are many things I love about this phone. The display is nice, no antenna but great reception, the duplex speaker-phone, and the alarms. Most of the other features are good but there are a few deal breakers. Here is the major one. After having it a few days and using it to make calls and receive them, I go to the call history and both incoming, missed, and outgoing calls are missing. The phone just says call history is empty. If I just made a call, then hit talk to redial the last number I still get call history empty. OK so its a bad phone yes? Went back to BB to exchange it. Guess what ...the new one did the same even after registering it. I checked the display unit and it did it too. OK so maybe BB has a batch of bad ones. Went to RS to check, same problem. Tried 2 more RS stores and they all do it. Am I the only one out there with this issue. Obviously I want this phone bad but this basic function MUST work. The other problems I see with this phone is the backlight on during charing, font size is way to small for initial dialing readout, and backlight doesnt stay on long enough. Other than this phone is fantastic. But until LG can download new software to fix these issues I will just keep looking or wait till the VI225 comes out. Hope they fixed these issues on that one too.
Pros GREAT reception,good speakerphone,compact,internal antenna,good battery life
Cons phone stays lit while charging,somewhat slow vision
Summary I am in a good coverage area(henderson,nevada),so all my phones have had good reception.But I did notice that in certain bldgs,reception was iffy,not with this phone,GREAT reception.Ive had it for 3 weeks now and love it.Its small,light and basic.Right before this I had the samsung A740.Also a small light phone,but spotty reception,no ext. screen and horrible BATTERY LIFE,so this is a definate upgrade.
