LG cu400 cell phone

from eBay
Very nice simple to use cell phone. Bought this one to replace one that I damaged. I have no need for too many bells and whistles, so this phone is just right for my needs. Ray Stewart
eBay

Dissapointing

from eBay
This phone has not worked very well since we received it. It says you have a signal but does not work 50% of the time you use it. It is light weight and has a nice touch on the keypad. It just does not work very well with reception.

Mailed right away and was exactly what was displayed

from eBay
I was in need of a new phone so i checked ebay and found the exact phone (that i loved) from last year. I bought it right away, at a reasonable price, and it was sent asap. I got it, well packaged, and with all parts the description talked about. The phone is up and running and im extremely happy. I would def. buy again from here!

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I HAVE HAD THIS PHONE FOR OVER A YEAR AND DROPPED IT AT LEAST 50 TIME ON TO PAVEMENT AND CONCRETE AND STILL WORKS.

IT HAS ALOT OF COOL FEATURES FOR ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE AND ITS ALOT CHEAPER THAN ALL THE OTHER PHONES OUT THERE

I bought this phone through AT&T (got it free after rebate) with main intentions for tethering an internet conection through the phone to my laptop. and I must say I am very impressed, I travel a lot and have used the phone as my main source of internet for my laptop, even whilst actually moving! It works just about everywhere, and works especially great in 3G areas. I opted for this after I found that with an air card you will need to sign a contract, with this you can cancel anytime and a LOT less start up fee is involved. Less

Absolutely hate this piece of junk

from Amazon
How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways........ 1. The noise it makes when turning it on and off. 2. In order to use the phone, I have to be standing outside in a area completely devoid of trees, buildings, power lines, even cars. If it is a cloudy day or raining, forget using it. 3.

How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways........ 1. The noise it makes when turning it on and off. 2. In order to use the phone, I have to be standing outside in a area completely devoid of trees, buildings, power lines, even cars. If it is a cloudy day or raining, forget using it. 3. The stupid PTT button on the side is in the way. 4. Ringtones installed on the phone - where did they find that awful stuff? I had a Nextel and switched to Cingular when my children moved out of state so it wouldn't cost them to call me from their Cingular phones. Needless to say, we don't talk much because my phone doesn't work unless I'm standing in the middle of an empty field or parking lot. I am planning on going back to Nextel. Oh, I've only had the phone for two months. Less
