Hands-on with LG Rumor for Sprint

Hands-on with LG Rumor for Sprint
The LG Rumor is a messaging-centric Vision (1xRTT) device that will be offered by Sprint in the coming weeks. It packs a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 (though no A2DP support,) a microSD slot that supports card sizes up to 4 GB and features direct access to Facebook. The big draw will be the QWERTY keypad, which is revealed when sliding the Rumor to the side. It will be shipping in two color; a black/blue combination as well as white/silver. While not as full-featured as the LG enV for example, the Rumor is smaller in all dimensions and fits nicely into the Sprint lineup which was lacking a true messaging device.

Expect our LG Rumor Review soon!

Well I got this phone yesterdayand it rocks. I love the fact it is simple and nice looking to boot. I also love the fact it does not have the bells and whistles t others have, it does what a phone is suppose to do. I love it. I was a avid flip phome person and I was a little leary about getting the rumor and now I am glad, like I said it rocks. The only thing I do not like and it is very basic, is that I can not put a strap on it and that I can not find a decent case for it, other than that it is a great phone. IT ROCKS.

I agree, I drive truck and have a couple folks who insist on texting rather than talking, this phone works great for that! I got my case when I bought the phone at the Sprint store for $25.00 or so. It's kinda like a tiny little purse with a clip instead of a strap and the flap/cover closes by a magnet. I really like it as well.

Well this is a pretty good phone with a few minor problems. I understand this is a first generation but I wish the MP3 player was a little more functional. Basically you cant use an mp3 file as a ringtone and it is not A2DP capable which basically means you cant use bluetooth technology to listen to the MP3 player wirelessly. I know that sounds like a nit picky type of requirement but for those that want to work out and listen to the toons its very handy.

I am getting the Green Sprint LG for my Birthday (7 days)...and I was wondering how great of a phone it was. I heard the screen resolution was poor along with the 1.3 pixel camera. Other than that, i heard it was amazing. I do have a question though...how does the MP3 player work?
