> In reply to Pet @ 2014-12-13 04:16 from Ibx0 - click to readThe LG Motion will no longer have service after Dec 31,2014. You'll be able to use it with Wi-Fi, but not Metro PCS.

That is why they are having a huge sale on phones. I bought my Samsung Galaxy Light for only $30 after instant in-store rebates. And on that note, I've had this phone for about 2 weeks and never really had any problems. When you reset it, it states that it's Running on T-Mobile network. The only problem I've had is a few texts weren't immediately sent, but it only happened twice.

Anyways , my dad and several other people I know have recently switched to this phone with absolutely no problems . This phone works great . Maybe its got something to do with the area you live in . Here in Pinellas/Hillsborough countys , Metros phone reception is reasonably good , with minimal dropped calls and very decent internet connections ...

We bought a Galaxy Light and had to reconnect back to Lg Motion because the signal was horrible even paying the 60 dollar plan. Metro pcs has given entirely to a company (Tmobile) that is not yet ready to provide as it says to metro customers, particularly out from big cities.

I wish we could do something on that phone to make it take the other towers' signals as the Lg Motion takes from CDMA ones.

i just bought 4 of these threw metro pcs(which gives a 7 day window to get a refund) on the 26th of November and every single one has been horrible with call signals. i drop calls all the time,went back to the store two days later(as they were not open thanksgiving) and was told that they will replace it but i had to go to another store,went there and they had to order a replacement(i had one broken out the box so i sent for one),which took over the week allowance for it to show up. so it seems i'm stuck owning a 7 inch tablets as this can hardly be called a phone when i it just wont catch a signal. when talking with metro saying how my lg motion was never dropped a call they said its because there still changing to the new T-moble network and that there signals just don't pass threw structures like buildings,houses, or cars. REALLY!!!! the new network your SWITCHING TO doesn't go threw walls, whats the point then.

For $29 at MetroPCS, you can't get a better phone. I would say it is a worthy investment for your 15 year old daughter and if she should break it or lose it you aren't out a whole lot of money.

Battery life is horrible. I have to charge it after only 5-6 hours and I seldom use it.

Does the audio jack also have mic support? The specs do not say.

The phone looks nice, great video - but watching movies in bed is not helping the calls and texts that I continuously miss. I am getting me an Iphone or something for Christmas. Sick of this nonsense.

I had this phone four about a month. I traded it in for a 5c. It worked great for me but when I updated to VOLTE it would not make calls. I was thinking of getting another one as a backup. After hearing all the comments I may just keep my bell S2 as a backup. I hope I will find a good deal on a tmobile Moto X 2013 because that uses a nano sim like my 5c.
