Don't get me wrong overall I do love the phone, these are just some problems I have run into Cannot use music or sound files, which I have purchased, downloaded, or recorded myself, as ringtones? I honestly would not have purchased the phone if I realized this. It seems pretty simple to me almost every phone Iâ€™ve ever had can do it why not this one? No File organization? Once a file is stored on the phone I canâ€™t change where it is stored or rename it. I would really like to be able to rename my photos and organize them into different folders but that is not possible. Cannot send or receive audio or video files? I can receive messages that have audio and video attachments but I cannot save the audio or video file to my phone. I also cannot attach a video or sound file to and outgoing message, only pictures. This is simply unacceptable; every other smart phone on the market does this without a problem. Birthday reminders? The contact list does store birthdays, can it just add them to the calendar? Windows live does this, but the phone calendar feature only syncs my primary calendar, not the birthday calendar so it still doesnâ€™t appear in my phoneâ€™s calendar. Iâ€™ve been told I should just enter them manually, but then they will appear twice in my Windows live calendar. Plus it seems ridiculous to manually enter the information when itâ€™s already there. Only syncs primary calendar? It would be really nice if it synced all of my Windows Live calendars, Primary, Birthdays, US Holidays, and calendars shared by my friends. This would also solve my birthday reminder issue as Windows live does sync my contacts and add their birthdays to my birthday calendar automatically. Blocked Calls? Not really a big deal for me, but some of my old phones had a feature where I could block calls from certain numbers and they would go straight to voicemail. I really liked this and miss it now that I donâ€™t have it. E-mail from text? I can send a text Message to an E-mail address if I enter the email address manually but if I select someone from my contact list, it will not even show their E-mail address as an option to send a text to, even if it is stored on their contact info. Drag and drop file transfer? Several of my old phones registered as a mass storage device when plugged into my PC. All I had to do to put picture or sound files on my phone, or move them from phone to my PC, was drag and drop. No other program required. Now I cannot do this without using the Zune program? This is the exact reason I will never own an ipod I should not have to use a special program just to copy files. Cannot exchange file through Bluetooth? Iâ€™ve been able to send and receive files through a Bluetooth connection on every Bluetooth enabled phone Iâ€™ve had, except this one.

I am overall quite disappointed in this product. The first phone virtually died before the warranty was up. I was sent another refurbished phone but of course had lost a great deal of my information and many pictures. I have had the second phone now for about 6 months and have had to replace the battery twice and now it is again not holding a charge. I like the pull out keyboard which is why I chose this phone but these other issues cause me to not consider it again.

The best phone Ive ever owned!!!
from Corinth, MS, USA
This is the best phone i have ever owned. ive left it for the iphones, lastly the iphone 5, but ill never do it again unless lg comes out with a newer model of basiclly the same phone. Mine has been updated to the windows 7.8, but i was happy with just the windows 7. the full slide out keyboard is the best. the only downside is the apps are way behind, and phone cases are slim to none. LG, please please bring out a newer lg quantum c900!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

this phone is the best phone i have ever had. i recommend this phone to anyone who is into windows products. i can't wait for a new quantum 2 (or whatever number they call it)

I agree with the others that left a review. Its weight gives me the feeling of a durable strong phone, very tough. I've dropped it a couple of times, not even a scratch. Oh and if not for the hard keys I think It would next to impossible to enter a credit card number without making mistakes as I did with my previous phone.

from Lancaster, PA, USA
Love this phone, It's the heavier of the 2 windows phones but it's most durable. Can't get any better as far as battery life. 2-3 Days on one charge. Xbox Live Friendly and games are easy to play, Superfast!

Comprehensive hardware/software integration bring performance and capabilities unmatched in the same pricepoint (now that the term 'obsolete' applies to it - already - and the fact that a 5MP camera is insufficient for most). I have nothing to complain about, and very little to 'wish' were better implemented now that WP v7.5 has rolled out. The simplicity of Cloud Storage actually brought me in, where I used to scoff at the concept. Now it's a browser side-by-side with a Windows Explorer .. Drag-and-Drop to the Server and 'invite' if I need to share it with someone (say, the shopping list). Frankly, the software built for controlling synchronization of folders is limited and complex, though.

This is simply the best phone out there with a physical QWERTY keyboard as far as smartphones go. If you're tired of cramped touchscreens or bad keyboards laid out strangely, then look no further. You will simply not find anything better. To put it mildly, Windows Phone 7 is an amazing OS. Everything is incredibly streamline and clean cut, making everything super easy to use. If you're a PC guy who likes a bit of customization, then you're in luck. You have the freedom to change the displays, the home screen, and many more settings throughout the phone. Get this phone. Be happy.

I loved the phone when it worked. The phone would lock up and I would have to take the battery out and put it back in to get the phone to turn back on. Sometimes that would be hours before it would cut back on. I haven't seen other reviews on this site about this problem, but I have seen on several other sites with cellphone reviews that several people have had this problem with this phone.

I have worked with many smart phones and the Windows Mobile 7.5 makes the LG Quantum an awesome choice of phones. While WP7 apps are fewer than iPhone and Android the phone does many functions out of the box that the others need apps to do them half as well. Microsoft Office including One Note rather than some imitation is truly compatible with the files created on your desktop without the need to convert back and forth maintaining the formatting of documents and spreadsheet. OneNote is especially functional maintaining fully synchronized cloud based copies. The Spell Check works across all apps including Text Messaging and works better than any other smart phone I have seen. The LG Quantum is the Only Smart phone with a full QWERTY keyboard that makes creating normal emails and documents that I have seen. The onscreen keyboard is functional for quick notes and short messages but when you need to type a professional looking document the slide out keyboard is indispensable. I have been given the choice to "Upgrade" but as yet have not found another phone worthy of the term.

"FLASH PLAYER!"It's a good phone. But my main concern is the lack of Flash. 75% of web videos/games are flash. Frustrating to try to watch video or play a flash game to be told you can't By far it's biggest Achilles heel in my opinion. The fact that you have to connect to a PC to update can be a bit annoying as well but not that painful.
