      Only alternative to "smart" phone

      I bought this for a friend who had to return a smart phone that was too awkward and difficult for his needs. We thought this simple flip phone would be better and it is, to a point. However, there is insufficient instructions on its use and we had to go back to the Best Buy store for help. From what I hear from my friend he is still having difficulties with this phone. I am not sure he is able to answer calls yet. The buttons are difficult to press and some features are not even labeled. You really need to pro vide a printed diagram with simple instructions on how to turn it on and off and and make and answer calls. Instead, there is a garage of information for features that he does not want or even understand. This is why the "smart" phone was returned. We chose this because we wanted something to do no more than send and receive telephone calls, nothing more. He had another simple phone in the past w/o any problem, The screen and useless bells and whistles on this make it less practical than older models but it is just better than the awful "smart" phone. What ever happened to the delightful cell phones that were available only two or three years ago? I gave this 3 stars because it is better than the smart phone he had to return but that isn't saying much.

      Unreliable Phone with Horrible LG support

      Posted

      In less than two months, the screen was glitchy internally. LG assessed the phone and said the LCD was damaged (which it was, but internally, not external, and it just randomly happened). I assumed it was faulty software or parts. Either way, they wanted to charge $19.95 for Diagnostic, $65 for repair and $95 for repair/refurbish. For a $25 phone. They also said my "warranty" was now pulled due to damage. The warranty is a joke given the state of my phone when I sent it to them. It absolutely should have been covered given the time I had the phone, the fact it was barely used and that there was no external damage which could suggest why the screen was having a problem internally. I will never purchase an LG phone due to this experience and how they failed to support their products.

      Seems OK

      We have the AT&T prepaid plan and my husband will only use a flip phone. The receiver in his previous (expensive) contract phone that he bought at the AT&T store quit working at 13 months so we had to buy another one. This one was $20 less at Best Buy than it was at AT&T. It is a little smaller than I would like and hard for big hands to open. You have to be careful to not pinch your fingers in the hinge when closing it. The navigation bars are a little tricky - they are thin, but only work when pressed with a finger - not a fingernail. On the plus side it was easy to set up, the ring is loud enough and the shortcuts to the contact list and recent calls are easy to use. The battery charges quickly. Since it cost less than $30 we won't be out a lot if it breaks just after the warranty expires, like the last one did.

      Basics, just the basics

      My hubby's cell phone died. Balefully, his request was simple: a twin. He wanted no bells or whistles. Just one for calls. No email. Photos would be nice if they didn't require the internet to share. And he didn't want to fork out more than 30 bucks a month for a Go phone plan. I figured it would be less complicated to drag him to the store than explain how t he internet on phones works. Found the peg for the closest duplicate available. A flip phone with the same features. An employee found the last boxed phone, I think in the senior citizen antique phone section. It does what it says. Works fine. Causes no internal strife for him. He brags about how little he pays. Snubbed the internet portion and is happy to rely on my phone to cover those needs.

      Works with h2o

      Transferred my h2o sim that was in a smart phone to this basic phone for an older family member to use. After charging it up, popped it into a sim adapter to hold the nano size sim, battery in and powered up. Took about a minute or so and it recognized the sim and service quickly! No other unlocking method needed, whew! Only other work needed after was to manually input contact numbers list since it's no longer google account linked anymore, minor issue but was expected. Works as expected, liked the speaker phone function is the center of the Dpad to activate for old people to use, having to explain before where to swipe/press and look for speaker on a smart phone was getting tedious.

      A nice basic phone

      The LG B470 is an old fashioned flip phone that works well for talk and text. It is also decent for the occasional picture taking and light web browsing (although it does not support Wi-Fi). My biggest complaint about this phone is that every time you want to open your contacts, the phone tries to connect to some "Address Book" service. Unless you press the "Cancel" button during this process, it takes an extremely long time to get to your contacts. Because a single button press remedies the situation, however, this is not a huge deal. If you or someone you know needs an AT&T cell phone and does not want a smartphone, the B470 gets the job done.

      Utter trash

      Worked for 4 months and all of a sudden all heck broke loose and Best Buy refuses to help- they told my elderly parents they didn't have this phone in the store which is a blatant LIE. Would NOT help them at all. LG also was useless and clueless. I did a hard reset myself which fixed nothing. Here's what it does: randomly calls people's phones when the phone is just sitting idle on the desk (creepy!!), says "battery low" even though it isn't, says "No Numbers" and beeps - what does this even mean? Utter garbage. Thanks BBuy - your customer service is almost as bad as this awful phone.

      The "Basic" Phone

      Bought this phone for my mom as a direct replacement of the one she had for 3 plus years (the charger port went out). Little changed other than it has a camera, which although the pic is very small is still excitement for mom. The sound and reception are both above average (mom is 81, wears heading aides). As with the previous version the volume controls are on the side and when you hold the phone you will always inadvertently adjust the volume... while you're talking/listening (as mom would say "Err"). Amazing they haven't moved the controls to the face of the display and/or have a "lock" option to avoid this major inconvenience. 4 stars for doing what its supposed to do. The fifth star is lost in the volume control.
