Pretty good phone
Bought this for the
but has been a good
as well. Easy voice mail etc, however, cannot figure out how to backspace through misspelled names. Not a single dropped call and I live in the sticks.
good phone, better than the motorola 376
the good things:
small, lightweight, compact
keypad feels good and has a satisfying click to it
t9 predictive texting - makes texting very very easy. and fast.
voice/audio recorder - kinda random, but it might be useful sometime, i guess.
there's a small two part button on the side that you can use to adjust your ringtone volume, or set your
to vibrate or silent. (instead of having to navigate through a really long menu). if you're in a call, it will adjust the call volume. its very convenient.
external display - if you just want to check the time without opening the phone, you can just press a button on the side, and you can see the date, time, signal strength and battery level on the outside screen.
the things that annoy me:
when you go to your inbox, the sender isn't in the title of text messages - it only shows the date and first few words of the message. really stupid, imo. also, when you get a new text, you can't tell who it's from until you open it.
camera is really low quality
the internet access is crippled, so don't expect to check your email from this phone or anything.
bluetooth, however, isn't crippled, and was very easy to setup and use (at least with a mac). its especially useful if you plan to take pictures or use the voice recorder, because it doesn't cost any
to transfer them to your computer using bluetooth. you can also transfer ringtones this way.
seems pretty good, i haven't tested it but it goes down to 2/3 charge after about 2 days, so it could probably last a week on one charge.
activate your phone over the internet, its much easier than calling them. none of their representatives speak english very well, and the internet activation process is much easier anyway.
USE BONUS CODES!! search on the internet for them. i added a 400 min, 365 service days card and got 350 bonus minutes. so with
minutes for life, that comes out to 2 * 400 + 350 = 1150 minutes for 99 dollars = 8.6 cents per minute. which = a good deal.
if you're choosing between this and the motorola w376g -
(this is all stuff i've read from other reviews on the internet. It is from reputable sources, but i don't actually own the motorola w376g. try googling "pbushx2's weblog" for lots of in-depth phone reviews)
in terms of texting:
t9 (this phone) > iTAP (motorola). i've heard on the motorola you have to press ok to auto-complete a word, whereas with the lg you just press 0 (space), which is much less awkward. also, i've read that the input is kind of slow/lags on the motorola.
other reviews have said that the sound quality is poor on this phone (especially compared to the motorola), and you people sound like they are far away, or talking through a tunnel. I don't notice this at all, it sounds fine to me. its never dropped a call, and i've always gotten reception. (though i live in LA, so i'm not sure how the reception is out in rural areas)
bluetooth and internet:
bluetooth is crippled on the motorola, so if you want to transfer pictures, you have to send them to your email, which costs minutes.
a lot of people complain about hitting the web browser button by accident with the motorola, and then getting minutes deducted.
the button isn't as inconveniently placed on this phone. i've never once hit it by accident.
i'm pretty sure the motorola has a scroll wheel, which would make navigating the menus much easier, but i'm not certain.
the external display on the motorola doesn't show the date and time
so yeah, overall i would say this a better choice than the motorola w376g, and the worth the extra ten dollars.
