    I used this phone for four years, and it was still working perfectly. I'd never had a problem with it, despite how much I used it. Eventually I decided it was time for an update, and after much research I bought a new phone. However that only lasted a day before I was back with my Dare. I am constantly texting, and this phone is the only one I can do so on, with accuracy and a fast pace that is. For someone with nails as long as mine, they slide off actual keys, and make texting on a heat sensitive screen impossible. On this touch sensitive screen I was able to text, as well as do everything else, perfectly. It's more durable than I thought imaginable, amazingly accurate, and has great features. I don't think I'll ever be able to use another phone.

                Comments about LG Dare Verizon Wireless Cellular Phone:

                The Dare is easy to get friendly with. the camera is very good , but needs a zoom feature. videos are acceptable and you can zoom in that mode. texting is fantastic with the virtual quarty key board . It is possible to watch youtube videos and full length movies that allow copies for your other devices. youtube videos can help you with this. The Dare can do many types of wallpaper including animated. voice quality is excellent with calls and on videos. I've had this phone for 2 yrs and It has been a lot of fun. internet isn't the best but with a little practice and patients it well serve you well.

                  The Dare is a cool looking phone with a lot of awesome looking features. The phone works fine, but if you are a serious texter, then get one without the touch screen. The touch screen is cool looking, but can make mistakes and difficult to use at times.

                    Comments about LG Dare Verizon Wireless Cellular Phone:

                    I've owned this phone since '08 and I've went through 3 of them so far cause it keeps powering off for no reason, I'm getting my 4th one this friday due to the same reason. Other than it powering off for no reason the phone is great :) the ringer is very loud + phone is easy to use, not to bulky, camera takes great pictures and it has some cool features. I do however wish it kept track of all the text message sent like some other phones I've seen, cause people don't always respond quickly so I tend to forget what I've said to them. I am very happy with the LG product I have other wise I would not keep getting the same phone hoping that the new one won't be a lemon. Lg makes a great product and I will continue to buy from them and would recommend them to family or friends. I just wish they could fix the problem I keep having with my phone. Looking forward to the new products that will be coming out.

                        Bought my Dare in May '08. I LOVE its compact size. The fact it doesn't slide or flip is a BIG plus. I'm still on my original battery even though I use it daily. It holds a charge FOREVER on standby. It has NEVER cut off on me. I LOVE EVERYTHING about its Touch screen. IF LG can improve on it, I hope a DARE2 isn't too far in the future. Maybe one day I'll consider another phone but for the forseeable future you'll find me on my DARE because I can't put it down!

                          I think this is phone is great, very easy to use, intuitive and great for searching the web. However, there is no way to lock the phone with a passcode unless you go into the settings every time you want to lock it. LG I suggest you make the lock button be able to be passcode protected. THANKS!

                                  I like this phone, however, it has had some issues. I've had to return it for a "refurbished" phone. My original phone would freeze while using IM and then it had some other screen issues. Not a bad phone, but not a really solid phone either.
