the touchscreen is killing me everytime it hangs up.. so much delay and inaccurate. i haved calibrated it may be 50x already.. including factory rest gosh!...
every else is fine.. LG should improve its touchscreen technology on this cellphones.. i feel frustrated everytime it hangs up.. i cant even take calls because the screen cant be used as touchscreen as it was desinged touchscreen or don't touchscreen?!!!

Might be ok for a cheap phone, but...

LO has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I'm against the outrageous prices and mandatory data packages just to get a nice phone through a major carrier, so unfortunately I'm negated to the cheapo "rest of" filler stock that the cellular companies provide. I'm pretty picky about phones, and had to find one quick after my last died. The phone starts out ok and seems to work well once you learn the quirks of its touch screen, but Ive had it about 8 months and the touch screen is starting to fail. Out of the 3 (most important) infrared buttons on the bottom, the dial button does not work at all, and the menu and end call buttons don't work 80% of the time, which means I have trouble trying to hang up phone calls, and I have to fight with the phone just to do it. Sometimes I have to take the battery off just to hang up a mistaken call, which happens often cause the rest of the touch screen isn't acting very much better! Half the time its pressing the wrong key, sometimes multiple times. (I have enough trouble entering a voice mail password).... and sometimes keystrokes don't register at all. BUT.. Despite all that, this phone does have a couple of neat features, and was ok when it was working properly. I am going to have it professionally cleaned and see if that helps. If not, well, I guess you get what you pay for don't you? Buy a case, treat it nicely, and maybe you'll have better luck.
