    This is by far the shittiest phone to EVER exist. I had the unfortunate pleasure of owning this phone for two years, and it has EVERYTHING wrong with it that you can imagine!!
    First off – it shuts itself off randomly sometimes when I’m texting.
    Secondly – even if a person is listed in my contacts, when said person phones me, they show up as “unknown caller.”
    Thirdly – I was completely unable to download ANYTHING onto it. Especially ringtones. It wouldn’t even work when I loaded music in with a micro SD card!
    Fourthly – I was unable to send video messages to anyone without getting a “network error.”

    It’s the worst phone EVER. I’m from Canada, and for some reason they didn’t recall it from our stores like they did in the USA. I’m glad I finally got a chance to switch to a Blackberry curve – and the funny thing is when I did switch, the girl at the kiosk selling me the blackberry says she REFUSES to sell LG rumors to ANYONE. I can see why.

    I have a rumor Lg phone, it seems like there are alot of people out here have similar problems, my phone was wonderful at first you could touch the screen and it would work just fine, it was a happy little phone, I have never drop the phone or anything like that I only touch the screen but, now you have to tap it and it take forever to work missed calls alot, can’t get the phone to answere when touching key pad same like it stuck. you can see a little lite on the pad itself but nothing. Take out the battery and put back in nothing, Then you might get luckey it will work again. Have had the phone 6 months. I am very unhappy, Had a nextel/sprint phone for 4 years no problem ever. now the the lg big problem. Going to get rid of this phone sooooooooooooooooooon. Michele
