I have this phone and it actually is pretty good. But the thing is, is that people are complaining about ''phone wifi'' or this is a ''worthless phone''. Well actually its not. I use this phone to call and text. Also people are complaining about 3 hr talk time? No ones going to be talking for 3 hr's! What I was saying before is that I use this phone to talk and text and its GREAT! You send fast, get messages back fast, and calling is nice too. Not the best but its pretty good. What I'm trying to say is that this phone is good for people who don't want to pay for the data plan only spending $30 a month just to get wifi to go on Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace only when your out of the house. Well guys.. You don't have to spend EVERY minute on the internet. Not complaining but its true. Also you have computers so... Yeah i have this phone and it's great. So if your seeing those negative posts on here just cause of wifi? Don't listen to them because this phone is really good! Also the keyboard.. Well its pretty small but the other phone I had was HORRIBLE!!! It was a pan tech... I prefer for you to stay away from pantechs because the keyboard was crunchy. and the screen was way to small .. But if you like these kind of phones then get it because if you see the 1-5 stars its 5-5!
Anonymous, 13 May 2012all of you people saying this is a worthless phone or who would want a phone this day and age ... morethankyou! your totally right!
all you people complaining need to get a life. if you wana be a snob and complain about how its not a smart phone go ahead! we will see whos angry when you go into debt from all thT INTERNET CRAP FOR UR PHONE WHEN U CAN USE IT ATH HOME
LOL! 3h30min calling time. This device is almost like corded phone. When LG gonna give up mobile phone business? I'm asking, coz they drift to some retro devices crap :)
smartphones are not way to go because they cost for downloading and how much data a page can hold i rather have free internet and free messaging and no gig plan need its pointless. and if u dont fully close out an aapp the battery runs down faster on smartphones
I have this phone and love it.I'm 23 years old and since I was 16 I've always had basic phones. When I need informtion about movie times, directions,or places to eat, I simply check online before I leave the house, or if I'm going to be gone for awhile I'll bring my tablet along and find somewhere with wifi. Alot cheaper in the long run. I use my phone to keep in contact with family and friends, thats it.
Just wondering, are the slide out keys hard to the touch or are they rubber-like?
all of you people saying this is a worthless phone or who would want a phone this day and age without wifi you are for one taking the time to wright a review and second there are some people out there who want a phone without wifi. i am 13 and most people my age dont want or need wifi. some of my friends have it but rarely use it. there is know need for it. the phone i have now and the next phone i get (i am hoping it will be this one) do not have wifi. there is no point in having it when most people just use it for facebook or other useless things like twitter.
I haven't ordered this phone yet but I plan to. Most of the negative reviews you read are complaining about the phone "not having wi-fi" or "why would you get this phone when you can get X smartphone." If you're in the market for a non smartphone (as I am)you shouldn't care about wi-fi capability. As for those raving about how much better smartphones are, not everyone wants a smartphone which is why they still make these phones. For people who want a phone for texting and calling. I for one am glad they finally came out with a new lg feature phone.
Not everyone wants to drop $30 on a data plan when they are surrounded by computers and wifi. Wish they would either lose the forced $30 charge or have more phones like this without the data charge.
..oh please...what about 17mm? What about 3 hours talk time.....may be the target customers are children or rather under-fives. I use LG products but this is a thing I don't get the reason or strategy behind it. But, I respect their decision.
it is awful at the 2012 year all devices must have wifi. it must be base. lg mezelenir
either u should not make physical slide qwerty phones or if u wanna make, make it like motorola.. the milestone and DROID 4 the latest the best!
what the hel happens to world why such big company as lg produce phone with no wifi at 2012 year it must be base for all phones beyond 2012
