LG Aloha is a terrific little basic phone!

I am a person who is tired of expensive contract phones. I tried Virgin Mobile as I heard that they have the best prepaid phones on the market. I got the Aloha on sale for $10.00. I was pleasantly surprised. It has great call quality. It's very simple to use, especially for texting. it doesn't have alot of bells & whistles, but it's a great basic phone. It has 2 calculators. i would recommend it for teenagers and for budget-conscious adults. You can check your balance with the press of a button. the only thing I wish they would improve on it, is the volume. it could be a little louder. For a mobile phone that costs under $20.oo, it's terrific. Also a great phone for someone who wants a spare, back-up phone. Less

PAY as you go phone review... Virginmobile is trying to get your money! be careful! you get a 1000 minutes card for 50$ thinking that you will have these minutes by entering the pin number but NOOOO! there is another step you need to follow. you have to pick voice minute package which is not among any of the instructions. if you do not pick that plan, you are paying 20 cents a minute. You call them and they do NOTHING about it. The customer service people are extremely rude and they even hang up on me! they also threaten you by saying that your call is monitored?!?! Never ever use their services for especially pay as you go phones... I would give them 0 or negative starts if I could... Less

The occasional text message, no problem. Good display, decent keypad. Easy to understand, I mean, it's a phone for criminy sakes. The price, fantastic. I paid 15 bucks for it, and it works EXACTLY as advertised. I love Virgin Mobile! No BS, no tricks, no hidden fees, just great service at a very fair price. Well done. Less

Great Phone!!!

from Amazon
I love my phone!!! It has everything I need and it's small so for me it's perfect! I was even able to download a ringtone from my favorite band(30STM)And at this price it's a steal!!!All you have to do is purchase a $20 topup card every 3 months and its so easy to add more airtime.

Great Cheap Phone for Occasional Use

I'm not really a fan of cell phones because of the silly and discourteous ways they're used by so many. But there are times they come in handy, even for me. I make three or four business trips a year, plus an out-of-town vacation or two, and the cell phone is really a major convenience on those occasions. But the absence of one has never bothered me enough to make me commit to an expensive phone, much less a long-term contract. I noticed some prepaid phones at a supermarket a few months ago, and did a little research. I was able to get the Aloha for $19.99, and bought a $20 card for Virgin Mobile service, and was up and running for only $40. So far, I've used the phone in Cleveland, Denver and Phoenix with good results. No dropped calls, and pretty good call quality. The phone is easy enough to use that you won't forget how if you put it away for a few days, and the storage of contacts, plus the scheduler make the phone worth the money and then some. If you're a cell phone buff, or want to impress you friends, this isn't the phone for you. No camera or outside display. Volume could be a little louder, and you've got to position the phone just right for best results. But at this price, it's a great phone for the light user, or as a temporary phone, or for someone who wants to see if a cell phone makes sense for him. Less

Sweet Little Phone

from eBay
This is an inexpensive little phone capable of surfing the web. Full color screen and durable. Great for a spare, considering VM gives you 5 free min a day. Or for a 1st phone for your kid.

Great for the price

from Amazon
After reading the reviews, I was wary, but I'd already bought the phone. So when I got it I instead tested it to see if it did what one reviewer said. The phone DID NOT stay on after I closed it. It cut the call off just like it should. I don't know what that person did to his/her phone, but mine works perfectly.

I am amazed that people slam this phone. I purchased one for $14.99 at a national chain store. What an amazing piece of technology for a mere 15 dollars. It's not perfect, but come on, if you want perfection go spend a couple of hundred dollars. Or, go and commit to a two year contract before you have even tried the service. My hat is off to Sir Branson and Virgin Mobile. I don't want a contract. I don't use the phone much but I like having it available for the occassional use. What a great convenience at an affordable price. Virgin Mobile and the LG Aloha have delivered in spades. Less
