I am having the same problem while texting and calling. The phone jumps around from screen to screen. I have tried task killing apps, and turning the phone off, but still the same problem. Any suggestion on how to fix this issue? I have only had the phone for a short while and hate it already.
I have had nothing but problems with this phn. I have talked to lg about issues with forced closing while texting, and they told me they have had no issues regarding this matter. But, after reading these reviews, i can see they were lying. I would strongly recommend not buying this phn unless you want headaches and high blood pressure.
this phone is not the best if u compare it to a blackberry or i phone its not very good but for kids and for your first phone it is great.i have it and i know that everyone complains about the battery but my battery is fine.one thing though it has not much space on it and cant hold alot of data.
but other than that this phone is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
Entry level phone that is in need for a boost !
-Pros: Android for cheap $
Suprised i could play (NeedForSpeedShift and TheSims3)
I can actualy win races and simulate life!
energy saving features
Ultra low resolution gameplay and low details in games
Needs to up the min cpu clock to be responsive in other apps
when opening/going from inactivity to loading apps
Better control over the cpu would make this phone worth it$
This phone run on (msm7227)
a cpu@600mhz and gpu@133mhz (Adreno 200)
Maybe if i could find a way to overclock it i would recomend it but
for now it is good for txt/emails/WebBrowsing with OperaMini
Do not expect more
I've had this phone since December, and I changed it from a LG Keybo. It works amazingly, honestly, I love this phone..
vcat, 05 Jan 2012i REALLY want this phone! it would be my first phone and i am 11... wada ya think? is it good ... moreThanks!! I am 13 and I really want a phone too! I am looking for one and I have founds phones I would like but they are almost all LG and a lot of people are saying LG sucks. These reviews have helped me change my mind! Thnx again!!
I had a keybo for 4 years and decided I needed a change. I definitely needed a phone with a keyboard and so the Optimus was an option. I've had my optimus phone for about 7 months now and I love it. The battery lasts me about 2 days, 3 days if I barely use it. It all depends on what you do with it, if you're playing games all day then yeah its going to die fast, every phone is like that. Sometimes its slow if I've had it on for weeks, I turn it off now and then. The only thing I dislike is how easily scratched the back gets, I have a screen protector on the front but the back is full of little scratches. The rotation of the screen sometimes is off but other than those few things, I couldn't ask for a better phone. (:
I HATE THIS PHONE!! The thing hasn't worked since I got it, which is sad cuz I love LG products. It just does whatever it wants, and I agree with everyone else battery life sucks. The keyboard is great, but the phone is so glitchy...I am constantly hanging up on people and pressing buttons
i think this is a pretty good phone!! its nice an basic and does what a phone basically needs to do and WELL!!! the battery life may not be the best but just charge every night and you'll be good!! I've had this phone for three weeks and i would definitely recommend it!!
I ended up with this phone more or less by accident because of problems with my Optimus One, so I'm not really the target market for a phone like this.
That said, I can barely stand it. The only good point is the physical keyboard, which is great for email and texting. Otherwise? It's slow and buggy, it doesn't run some Android apps that do run on the Optimus One, it doesn't synch with Gmail properly and it can take hours for my email to actually get through, and even the basic phone functions are screwy. It's way too easy to accidentally hang up or push keys with your face while talking, and you need a computer science degree to do stuff as simple as punching in your voicemail password. Can't recommend this model, and just can't wait to replace it.
I honestly hate this phone.Everytime im texting it will randomly go to home menu and then google search.Or sometimes my keyboard doesent even work its the 3rd or 4th time i reset it and its only been 5 months i have it.I got it in january and it worked perfectly fine and now its just being stupid im thinking about getting a new one or getting this one fixed!?!?!
I'm getting this phone today!!!! I'm really excited. My friend has this phone in black and it's a really good phone. She's had it for 4 months now and not a scratch on it. I'm definatly buying it!!!!!!!!!!!
violet, 01 Oct 2011i am choosing a phone for the first time ever and im so excited i was thinking about get this ... moreI have the lg optimus chat. Its good for social ntworks and the free wifi but its not the greatest for gaming. Its kinda slow and glitchy with games and it dosnt hold a lot of games either but I would still recomend this phone
vcat, 05 Jan 2012i REALLY want this phone! it would be my first phone and i am 11... wada ya think? is it good ... moreI just got this phone about a month ago and I really like it because its so easy to use and I haven't had any problems with it...... the only bad thing about it is how short the battery life is, it usally only lasts me about a day or 2 but I just plug it in every night. So yea I think that u should get it:)!!
I have had it for a few months. It sucks. When im texting it will force close, or when i use the 'e' key it will go to email, or sometimes 's' doesn't even work, to resolve that i have to turn off and back on which takes more than 2 minutes.. I am not impressed
Hey, has anybody had any problems with the texting of the phone? My previous phone broke, so I bought this one to replace it, but now the text messages go up to 20 per conversation and then I need to force close the text messaging application. And, I can't open the application until a turn off and on my phone, then delete all messages. It is starting to make me a bit angry. As well, I sent it in to the store about 4 times now, and they never could find out what is the problem. They just did system updates, and never tried to fix the phone. And the phone came back the same as we sent it. So I am wondering if anybody has had this problem as well, and how did they fix it?
I have had this phone for about a month and a half. Love it to bits. Getting onto the photo albums can be really slow sometimes but now i cant get onto it at all!!!! If i want to view pics I have to plug it into my computer. Plus now the pics are fuzzy!!!! Not very good!!!!!!!!!!
