      Comments about LG Verizon Wireless Cellular Phone:

      I had this phone for near five years and it was very reliable. It is extremely easy to use and has a nice set of features. This phone can also take quite a beating and still work fine, I have thrown it at; walls, fans, concrete, trees, the ground, took it swimming a few times, and even hulk-smashed it onto the road and everytime I did as soon as I put the battery back in and put the battery cover back on it worked just as good as if i had bought it that day. After beating the crud out of this phone for so many years it kept on working. It finally had its first real problem this past week as the screen turned white and I have been unable to see anything. I can still make calls with it but as I mostly text it is time to lay this phone to rest and get a new one. unfortunately the insurance will not get me the same model so I hope the new one will be as reliable as this one. The camera may not have been the best, and it wasn't the best looking phone (after all the cosmetic damage I caused to it), but it was still the best phone I've had and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new phone.

          Comments about LG Verizon Wireless Cellular Phone:

          The camera takes fair pictures but is worthless as you can't download them or get them off the phone. We even took it to the store that sold it to us and they can't download the picture either! It makes the camera feature on this phone worthless.

          This product have features that are good but...

          Comments about LG Verizon Wireless Cellular Phone:

          This phone is awesome, it has great battery life but there are problems. 1. I can't browse mobile web, even with wifi. How are you even supposed to connect? 2. I can't download games or ringtones. When I go into the games folder, all it says is Get New applications and when I click that, it says Unable to verify your account information. Please call customer service. But the phone quality is great, and I would reccomend this phone still.

              This phone can't be beat. I've had this phone for 2 years and love it. But I accidentally washed it in the washing machine. I was sure it was dead. But I was wrong. After drying it out overnight in a bag of rice, it charged up and has been working like new ever since. This phone is remarkable. You just can't ask for a better phone. I highly recommend.

                  The LG VX5500 is an affordable, reliable and efficient phone. It is so easy to use. I love its Bluetooth capability and practical features like speakerphone and voice commands, and of course the camera. The battery life is also noteworthy. This is a phone I would recommend unreservedly to anyone.
