I liked the phone when I first got it but then the text limit kicked in. So I went out and bought a mini sd card for it thinking that it would start saving all the texts to the card like it does with everything else on the phone. That didn't work the text limit still kicks in and about every other day I have to clear all the texts. Usually I have important info in my texts that I can't delete and I need to refer back to from time to time which I can't do on this phone. I use to have a Palm Centro and I never had to clear the texts. It stored every text I ever sent. Also I use the alarm clock on it and it only goes off when the phone is in ring mode. I would like the alarm clock to go off in any mode that I have the phone in. The address book doesn't allow you to put in a persons last name in a separate field and search by their last name. You can only search the way you entered their name in the one field provided. I usually have so many contacts that I don't remember everyone's first name and this can be a problem. Also I don't like that I can't customize the Menu to only show me what I use. There is a bunch of stuff in there I never use and never will and I don't like haveing to scroll through it all to get to what I use. I also don't like that the . and the 0 are the same key. When I'm trying to type out a number with a decemil I have to exit out of the FN then type the . and get back into the number with FN to finish. This can be very annoying.

This phone is difficult to operate. The lock unlock keeps you from answering at times. There are several other operational features that are not the easiest I've seen. The part I hate the most is there is NO CONNECTION software for this phone. A USB cable is available but what good is it? You cannot transfer anything to or from you phone. Picture, why take them if you can save them to your computer. No I will not purchase another LG phone out of fear they are all like this one.

Phone get's buggy over time
By Getting Frustrated
from Mulberry, FL, USA
Comments about LG Xenon AT&T Wireless Cellular Phone:
I've had this phone for a couple of years. Was very durable and dependable but has started getting buggy. I minute it will connect to the blue-tooth in my car, the next time it doesn't. The other day, the alarm went off and it was no where near the time it was supposed to go off. Noticed later it was 8 hours and 3 years off on the time and date. Today, it would let me make calls but could send and receive text. Batteries don't seem to last long either, had to replace at least once a year it not more often. Love the slide-out keyboard. Very durable phone, have dropped it a couple of times in the past and has never broken.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not Happy Jan
I have had this phone for over a year and have continuously had downloading photos and video problems. One day it works and downloads the next it doesnt. I have tried everything in the book and besides but its so unreliable Im sick of it and look forward to getting another phone, dont think it will be LG.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good and reliable
from Santa Rosa CA
Very good mobile. Its a bit out of date but still stands the test of time. Wish I could upgrade to a touch screen phone which has more capabilities etc. But for now its great

amazing but for a short time
from Bonita Springs, Fl
honestly i love this phone, its so easy to use and so easy to be addicted to it. I love it when i txt w/the keyboard bc its easy, also using the touch screen when im feeling lazy or in school, its the perfect combination. the email and im is also unbelievable on this its so easy to use, and all the other apps and stuff they have. But.... calling someone you better hope you dont have to talk for more than about 20 minutes bc then the phone will die, its crazy how fast this phone dies, but just when your talking on the phone, if you text the whole day or go on the internet as well occasionally it will last the whole day or atleast your work or school day, that and a little glitch i get with my phone after i send a text message is my only problem with this, also that the screen can die out easily too
I'm 14 so I text alot and the texting is great. The thing that I hated about it is the battery life. It didn't last that long at all. After I started having problems with the battery life I found out that my cousins best friend also had that phone and had problems with the battery life, so its no just certain ones that are faulty. It holds alot of pictures. And the picture editing is great. It is very durable. It doesnt get scratched that easly though i did get a scratch on mine from dropping it so many times. If you drop it and it hits something hard then falls to the floor the inside screen might brake(It might be only that it would of ever will happen to though XD) Even if the inside screen does brake if you try sennding your stuff to another phone you will still be able to. It will call people even when on lock.( I used to keep it in a seperate pocket of my purse so nothing would turn the lock of or so it wouls call anybody but it still sum how did.) The speaker quality is great. You can text with the touch screen number pad when it is closed so you could text with one hand if doing something else. ( Also makes it great for texing during school if you are expected to take notes or write sumthin ;) XD) I thought that it was kool that when texting you could pull up a list of different text style smiley faces. The menu is very easy to use, and you are able to do several things at once without exitng out. I could keep going on and on bout this phone but im gonna stop. I would recommend this phone to a friend if they wouldnt mind charging the phone up alot.
Its pretty good
I just don't like how it holds very few messages, and it won't allow me to save it on an SD card...
Not the best
from New York, NY
I got this phone about two years ago. Its not the worst phone, but certainly not the best. It tends to shut off and reboot on its own, (i have had 2 and my mom 1 so its all of them). it constantly freezes. All of the applications arent always functioning properly. I would not recommend this phone to a friend.
Fine in the beginning
By Ashley K.
I got the Xenon last July and I loved it. Now, not so much. My Xenon has absolutely lost its mind. The response of the touch screen is malfunctioning. It selects things that I don't touch. I went to delete my text messages and it starting selecting random messages, scrolling uncontrollably, and vibrating. It was great in the beginning but now it's gone. I'll be buying a new phone very soon.
A VERY Poor Quality Phone
from Louisville, KY
My phone's screen became scuffed and scratched up from just normal use and normal storage in my pocket. The user interface is not touch friendly. I use the alarm widget to set an alarm every day and you have to push an on button the size of a thumbnail, and if you miss, it resets your alarm to the current time. The hardware keyboard does not have a shift key or function. In order to enter a capital letter, you have to hit the caps lock key, which, of course, often means that you end up writing your entire text in all caps. The same goes for the Fn key. I cannot tell you how many times I have typed, for example a ' :) ' and ended up writing my next word as #%$^&$. My backlight randomly started going into what i can only describe as overdrive (its up above the maximum brightness setting and flickering) and then it eventually became permanent. The lack of syncing software and software updates is the real clincher. LG put out this phone and then never provided any support for it. Every time the phone restarts (powers off and then back on) the shortcut page tells me that i can put any applications on that page. The one (somewhat) redeeming quality is the battery life. For a phone with a screen of this size the battery life of over 24 hours of light use is amazing. I am also experiencing signal dropouts whenever my phone is in my pocket, and sometimes when it is in my hand. Overall, I do NOT recommend this phone.
