Best phone ever!

I agree with the last comment my LG385 is amazing! My contract has been up for a while and I wanna get a smart phone but I just can't part with my baby!!! It's been so good to me! Never ever broke, I've dropped it HARD and OFTEN!

Wonderful

I got this phone 3 years ago on a 2 year contract, I haven't had a SINGLE problem with it. Texts/Calls everything works great. I've dropped it a couple of times and its fine. This is a wonderful phone. Higly Recommend.

Piece of Garbage

Ever since ive got this phone, all it has been is trouble. After 2 months, it lost its sheen. After 3 months, calls stopped comming in. After 6 months, I stopped getting texts. After a year, I! couldnt call anyone, or send texts. As of now, almost all of my texts refuse to send, and if they do, they ar...More
Ever since ive got this phone, all it has been is trouble. After 2 months, it lost its sheen. After 3 months, calls stopped comming in. After 6 months, I stopped getting texts. After a year, I! couldnt call anyone, or send texts. As of now, almost all of my texts refuse to send, and if they do, they are still not considered to send. Ive lost 2 jobs because my phone doesn't recieve calls, and the music bar on the bottom makes the phone vibrate CONSTANTLY, no matter what. Anyone who conciously gets this phone knowing about it is near stupid. Less

Poor screen visibilty

It's been over a year now since I've owned one. The sound out of the earpiece is rather unclear so I have to use a bluetooth or earplugins to get a clear understanding. The calendar has a nuisance in that once info on a particular date is entered, you can't simply change the date if say an appointmen...More
It's been over a year now since I've owned one. The sound out of the earpiece is rather unclear so I have to use a bluetooth or earplugins to get a clear understanding. The calendar has a nuisance in that once info on a particular date is entered, you can't simply change the date if say an appointment is altered; you have to reenter ALL the info. The outer display is not clear in the daylight to see who is calling. I've had better phones, but overall it's worth a 7 out of 10!! Less

LG385 they have forgot this is a phone!

From day one, I have alot of problem with hand free system. I can not set the speaker enough lood to ear, and if I set sound level to high, at the other end they state this is to loud. I have contacted many time company, but as sson as sold, they do not want to help. Another beautiful feature with this...More
From day one, I have alot of problem with hand free system. I can not set the speaker enough lood to ear, and if I set sound level to high, at the other end they state this is to loud. I have contacted many time company, but as sson as sold, they do not want to help. Another beautiful feature with this phone, work properly every where for the first 2 weeks, and after that, communciation, including in city , is very difficult. A second before 5/5 on antenna, and second alter no system available. For conclusion, if you want to have a gadget who serve for somethings else than a phone, like camera and music, go ahead and buy this phone! That's my third LG phone and for sure, the last one. Less

It did not take long for the finish to be completely worn off on this phone. I should have gone for the metallic model I guess. Now I get a message "out of range" even though I am in the city. Everything is working on the phone but the phone. it will not dial out or receive due to this message. It was not careless charging. It developed this problem all on it's own. Almost as if it's internal antennae quit functioning. Up to now it has worked well. Less

Not The Best!!

I've only had mine for less than a year and already some of my keys don't work, often the whole phone will "freeze" up on me locking me out of everything forcing me to remove the battery and try again, plus the reception has went down hill since the winter (was fine when I purchased it!).
