I had this phone for only two weeks when the screen went completely white.  It was under warranty, and LG replaced the screen for free.  The only complaint that I have is that the paint is peeling off.  My phone is only 4 months old, but looks much older due to the loss of paint.  This is not covered under warranty, but I think that it should be.

  • Big screen...very easy to read. 1 year warranty. Vibrate mode is strong enough to actually hear and feel through your coat pocket.


  • Paint will peel off, leaving a new phone looking much older than it is. Peeling paint is not covered under warranty.

I love this phone

This is by far the best phone that I have had in years. I have dropped this phone - No problems. My dog has got ahold of this phone and thought that it was his new toy - No prpblems. I can say that I have had NO PROBLEMS at all with this phone.  I will also say that I have got a new phone and gave this phone to my mother. She has a hard time seeing and she loves this phone also!

I had this phone for less than 2 months, and already the purple paint is coming off.  This is not under warranty, it is considered "normal wear".  Also, I had to send it in because the side volume keys stopped working.  I think I got a lemon!

Good phone, But

I love the phone, the large print, (except for easy edge). The think I want that I don't have is a large enough place to put addresses. The note pad is too small. I thought about getting eh Motorola Hint, but the reviews were so bad. What I want is a PDA without the internt, sound, print and light adjustments. No such animal is made without the internet fees. I have had trouble with a shaky, hollow, of and on sound, but am trading the phone in for anothe

I have used a couple of different phones and this is far the best one yet.  The battery lasts, voice is clear and I have very few dead places when using it.  It is a great phone.

I have tried many different phones that US Cellular offers (LG260, AX300, samsung delve and Blackberry Curve). Although I liked them all. the delve in particular was nice. But this phone is perfect for someone older like me. The numbers and texts are larger and easier to read (especially in low lighting areas). The blackberry would have been fine (I have used palm treo's in the past)- except the buttons were so small.

  • Very easy to use and read. excellent battery life.


  • No micro SD slot to add music. very limited on ringtones. games can only be used with easy edge data plan.
