This phone has been a NIGHTMARE since I got it in 2013. I'll be mid-text and it'll randomly shut down and reboot. I'll have texts come in with weird icons at the end and I'll have to text myself to have the first message come in fully. I'll get half texts from people that don't fully come in until I reboot. The volume of phone calls is AWFUL. Need to make a call in the car? Better not be moving faster than 20mph or you won't be able to hear anything. My biggest problem though is the one that is not making me trash the phone. I'll touch the icon to check my messages but the phone will select an icon clear across the screen. I can't check messages, make calls, EVEN ACCESS THE SETTINGS. Every Verizon support person and every post reply I've gotten is "do a hard reset. Go to your settings...etc" Yeah I CAN'T CLICK THE SCREEN. Even worse. They'll tell me "Recalibrate the screen." I'm an IT person. I tried that first. I get an "out of bounds please try again" error. Nothing I've found online says anything good about this phone so I'll be steering clear of LG products and will be advising everyone around me to do the same. Crap quality.
Small keys make a text a challenge, and I get many doubled letters. Psycho phone will occasionally text or call a number while it is in my pocket, even when I locked the screen. The first phone suddenly fried, and the data could not be saved. That should have been my warning. Since I don't call or text a lot, I can get by most of the time with psycho phone, but it will be retired as soon as possible.
I loved, no LOVED LG's EnV3 phone and mourned when mine died. Had the Cosmos2 afterward. It was OK. When that died I went to the Extravert. Awful, horrid phone. Whoever designed this should have their head kicked. To put buttons along the side where one holds the phone is ridiculous. To make matters worse, buttons push when your face touches the screen during a call. While trying to avoid the side buttons, and trying to find a way to hold the phone without dropping it you end up disconnecting calls altogether. My only option is to carry around a headset so my hands are nowhere near the phone. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE
Have had LG Extravet since 7/2014 & have had serious issues within the last 5 months. Can not erase drafts, certain texts & ghost sending texts. It seems to put "a reply" text back to sender in "park mode" then puts that text into a previous sender (this sender has no idea what or to who it is meant for) & sends it not once but as many as 100 times & I am not aware of this re-sending upteen times!! I am constantly apologizing to friends/family the errors that this phone is doing. This phone is possessed! Verizon will not replace it!! NICE!!
This is the WORST phone. Don't buy it. I've had nothing but problems with it and HATE it. Do I sound frustrated...yes...and you will too. It shuts off and won't start again. Verizon has been of no help. The screen is hard to read in any kind of daylight. When in your pocket it constantly calls random numbers. Right now my phone won't turn on. I've tried all the tricks posted on the internet to get it back up, but here I am without a phone.
This phone is horrible. I barely touch it with my ear while talking, & it is pressing all numbers, & letters
tj, 08 May 2012really like this phone. it has a few glitches but still works great. i plugged it into the com... moreso you have no problems with your phone at all so you can post pictures to your facebook after you take with the camera,,Im a grandma I take pics of my grandbabys and love the sunsets I take lots of pis of those and love to post them but my one granddaughter told me last night she cant put my Wi-Fi on this phone and Im not smart when it comes to these things..So Im not sure if I should even keep this phone or not because this was only one thing I did enjoy doing
so ive had this phone for about 4 years, on and off. it shuts off multiple times a day and slows down when i talk on the phone for more than 20 minutes. sometimes i get texts really late. sometimes when i send picture messages the picture send small. when someone else sends me a large picture it either takes forever to load or doesnt load at all. i dont use the internet on it, so that cant be making it slow. although, i must say a plus side of having this phone is that no one in their right mind would steal it.
Why can't I erase messages in the inbox? They are unlocked, and whenever I get a new message it takes forever to load because my inbox is at 90 percent
Its stupid i was walking home from playing with my friend and it called my mom when i didn't even do anything it was in my purse .then once when i was walking to school my phone in my purse again called my dad
I want to put on my 3 page some thing new I charge the 3 screens I dnt txt message as one
This is a nice phone for talking. I hate to text on it. Never text from the touch screen and it is very slow. The touch screen is not sensitive at all. Which can be a good thing, or a bad thing. It's nice for a first touch screen. That being said, it is a durable phone. I've abused mine, dropped it, and talked on it while in the rain. The internet can be slow at times and unresponsive. The apps are impossible, don't even bother with them. It's a nice phone for the price. But don't mistake it for a smart phone.
I have owned this phone for almost a year now and I love it!! BEST Phone I have ever had! I have it with verizon and I never have a Dropped call and Almost never have no bars! The Camera is really nice even though the only thing I dont like about it is you only have Little Zoom and 1 light control balance and no flash.
The touch screen is wonderful...Ive never had it freeze on me or Lag. Its always done what I wanted it to do!! I would Deff. Recommend this phone to someone that doesnt want a Smart phone but still have Smart phone like features! I can do anything on my phone that a Smart phone can do except Wifi and the App Store.
I give this phone 5 Stars!! Hands Down!!
dont get this phone for yourself or anybody you care about unless you wanna spend all your time trying to figure out how to delete your inbox without the touchscreen because it doesnt even last a year. about 4 months in it will start to go then die out all together by 7. dont waste your time on this piece of junk.
this phone is terrible. the screen on it sucks and the sound sucks. the pictures arnt great but there ok.And my phone has recently went complely black and will not turn back on for the world. i recommend not getting this phone.
really like this phone. it has a few glitches but still works great. i plugged it into the computer as soon as i got it and downloaded the software update so i have had no memory problems. also the charge lasts on it for about three days. and im 17. i text A LOT. so i really like the battery life. the only thing that is kind of annoying is when the battery does die you have about three minutes to plug it in after the first low battery warning and after it shuts off it does not come back on until you plug it in, but i guess i know it uses every bit of juice it has.
