I've had the VX3200 for a few years now, and I haven't had any problems. I've never had to get it repaired. I even dropped it in the toilet once, and still got it to work after. It had been turning on and off on its own, but I let the water drain out and then it worked like new.
This phone is very easy to use, looks nice, and does what I need it to. It wasn't expensive either. My dad got a set of 4 for the family for like $60, I think. I also got a clip, which works fine.
My service is great. With my last phone, I didn't get service in my own house! Now I have it practically all the time. I can't remember losing any calls (on my end), and there's hardly ever a time when someone has trouble hearing me. The sound quality is also great. When I use my boyfriend's phone, I'm always trying to turn up the volume cuz I can't hear anything, but it's all the way up!
I don't know what you guys are talking about with the end button, because I can end a call just by closing my phone. I actually didn't know it did that at first, so I told someone to hold on, closed the phone, and then was surprised when 2 seconds later, they were calling me back.
I wish I could get games, and that I could get ringtones from more than just vtext.com, but that's my only complaint. I was sad that I couldn't use faceplates, but I found out recently that you can. So then aside from personalization with ringtones, this phone is great, and I'm happy with it. I would buy it again, unless there was a version...Design 10/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 9/10

Good basic phone
I have had the LG VX3200 for almost a month w/ MetroPCS service. No complaints at all. The problems I read about have not occurred with my phone so far (thankfully). It's basically "no frills" but it's great for what you should basically use a phone for, i.e., making and receiving calls.Design 10/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 9/10

An excellent minimum frills phone
An excellent phone for the 10 months we have owned it. The speaker and voice are top quality. I haven't experienced any of the problems the others have listed. Battery is getting a little weak but that is easy to replace. Bought a new one after market for $5.99. An excellent minimum frills phone.Design 8/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 10/10

This phone is phenomenally good for the price. Most of the complaints are ill-founded. Reception problems are perhaps 98% of the time because of the SERVICE PROVIDER, people, NOT the phone.
Also.... NO ONE ever admits to the way they mistreat their phones and then they rashly post negative comments about the very phone model they abuse. It's like everyone talking about the "bad drivers" out there. Well, some of us have to be those bad drivers.
Treat your phone with respect and you won't have any problems. And if you use a headset, take it in and out gently, honey. Any other careless way can cause damage that can yes! === do strange things like cause numbers to be dialed.
Once again, numbnuts --- treat your phones as small computers, not as toys.Design 9/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 10/10

Tampa, Fl area. I have a LG VX3200 from Alltell. Impossible to converse without loosing call 100% of the time. Customer service promised to help by calling to my cell, but never did. The phone was mailed to me, however they will not send a new phone and said the problem must have occured within the first 15 days of receiving and using it. Now they tell me to take the phone to the store where I originally signed up for Alltell about 3 years ago and they would check it and "might" lend me a replacement while my defective phone is sent for repair. I actually received 2 new phones when I upgraded and added an additional number for my dad. No problems with one of the phones other than a dropped call occasionally. Customer service told me that if I am not satisifed with Alltell then I could pay like $2XX dollars and cancel my service. Oh yeah, most of the dropped calls on the bad phone are long distance and not local. Horrible company!!!Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 2/10Value for money 6/10

Makes Calls By Itself
In addition to these problems, this phone will make calls by itself (while headseat is in and while car is running). These are call which should never be made---and of course they count against the owner. Usually the calls are to the last number called. I have had phone replaced and still does it. Yes, it is calling on its own when the cover is closed and the headset is plugged in. VZ can't figure it out. Try another phone.Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10

Don't expect much
I've had it for about 5 months now and I have noticed some problems. For one, the alarms don't always go off when you set them to.... It loses calls constantly.... It has started to squeak a little when it is opened.......
And you should really not get this phone. Never talk on it when it's sprinkling a bit outside. My phone shut itself off. I wasn't even wet inside and now the whole screen display is messed up. It's all blotted out and the pixels are messed up all over the place. It will still make calls... you just can't SEE anything on the screen except when it first starts up and says 'Verizon'
If you buy this phone, don't expect much.Design 6/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 6/10

Reception is a feature??
I thought reception qualitay was a must, but I think my phone is special, keep dropping calls all the time. This is an expensive toy, not a business partner. Everything about this phone is good, but the reception is atrocious!! Lots of times I don't have good reception in the city, but when I go out to my ranch, forget you have a cell phone, it will ring, mind you, and you can place calls, but don't expect to stay connected longer than 5 seconds if the bar is only on 1, as it is almost always. I have changed this phone already once, and plan to do it until I get one that actually works. Should have done more research on it, before signing the contract. Beware!!Design 10/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 2/10Value for money 3/10

Dont Waste Your Money
OMG this phone is the biggest piece fo crap ever!! i have had it for 4 months and i've never been so annoyed in my life!! For the $220 i payed for it i would expect WAY better quality!! The phone wont stay off unless the battery is fully dead, its shuts off in the middle of calls, i dont get all calls, i dont get all text messages, the service SUCKS! The only good thing about it is the ringtones you can download. But other then that DONT BUY IT I REGRET IT!!Design 6/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 4/10

Games and Ringtones for Lg 3200
the lg 3200 suks. You can not get any good games and ringtones for it. As a matter of fact you cant get games at all. I know im complaining and that many people are probably thinking that i can get a game boy for as much as i paid for a phone and i would be happier, but i want to play games on the go. If you are looking for a good phone, dont buy the Lg 3200!!!!!!!!!!Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10

All around awesome
I definetely like the basic design of the phone. It's not cluttered at all, and it's features are organized. I like all the customizations that come along with it.Design 9/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 8/10

I got the same problem that another user decribed on the forum... keeps powering off and back on.
Can't use any of the fonction anymore since then: no voice dial, no memo, can't even add contacts.
Same problem with the clip also. My old LG was perfect, this one is really a bad design.
Dont buy this cellphone.Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 2/10

I had problems with mine after 2 months and I had to take it in to be repaired. The phone kept turning on and off by itself. I set it to alert a certain way for messages and it wouldn't. Sometimes when one person that is listed in my phonebook would call it would show up as another name in my phonebook like it just gave up looking for the real name. After a while the recent call list wasn't updating. And now that it is fixed the message alert still isn't working and it doesn't ring as loud as it used to. Some of the features are nice like the speakerphone and the fact that you can use voice notes as ringtones but overall this was not my best phone.Design 8/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 4/10

It's pretty good
I hate the belt clip. Falls off all the time. I wish I could find software that would let me upload/download from my computer. I have the cable but can't find any software. I liked the LG4400 better until the door broke.Design 9/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 9/10
