    Did not Work Outside the US

    Posted
    HenrietteKateReyes

    Despite the phone labeled as UNLOCKED & INTERNATIONAL COMPATIBLE, in reality it was not. It did not work w/ any of the GSM Carriers outside the US. I called the LG Warranty Hotline (1-800-793-8896) and the rep acknowledged that I have been mislead and even suggested that I have it "jail-broken" by a 3rd-party tech w/ a disclaimer that LG as a manufacturer does not recommend it though and "if you do, it will forfeit your phone warranty". Don't make the same mistake that I did when I bought this phone. Best Buy should pull this scam of a phone out of their stores if they truly care for their customers and their business integrity.

    Not truly unlocked

    Posted
    Baok

    I purchased this phone as I lost my really nice phone. I wanted an unlocked phone since I am living in Belize for a year. I tried putting a sim card in it, it won't accept it, like the phone is still locked so not good on that aspect. The storage fills up fast as the operating system and preinstalled apps eat up half of it. I purchased a SD card so that I could have extra storage. If I had a choice, I'd definitely have purchased a phone that has more storage. The phone being locked bothers me as I asked questions before I purchased it. I cant return it as I'm not heading back to the States within the return time of 14 days.

    Phone Failed after only 2 months

    After only two months my LG phone would only make emergency calls. I tried all recommended options to get it to work, including a new sim card. Nothing worked. Best Buy would not take it back, but instead said it needed to be sent back to the LG company. The repair process took 2 weeks. When I got it back the problem was not solved at all. It still had the exact same problem. It seemed they didn't even bother testing any "repair" they had done. After over a month without a cell phone I had to just go a buy a totally new phone. That time and money on that phone was a total loss.

    Basic and efficient phone

    My phone was stolen and I needed quick replacement phone that worked with t-mobile; I did some research online and found this LG phone. So far the phone has proven to be reliable and acceptable at processing my basic communication needs. I am appreciative of its availability and the fact that it is unlocked. Thank you for your time.

    Works great, just not on ATT

    This is indeed an unlocked GSM phone however, it does not work at all on ATT's network. I use Net10 and the ATT SIM was no-go, T-mobile works great. Found another review on that river in Brazil and they also found the same. Best Buy needs to update their documentation or get ATT to allow the phone on their network.

    Phone stopped working while traveling to another state. Thought it was the SIM card, swapped SIM card to another phone and SIM card worked. Phone started working when I got into NC/SC from my trip. Going to return phone if phone can’t be used out of state.

    I just don't under stand why this thing exist! my dad bought it for a work phone and most of the time he can't be reached from it and at time he can't even make calls. and there is no real point of returning it because there is a 35$ restocking fee. that is about half the cost of the phone. just don't buy it

    Poor battery life, too much bloatware

    the battery only lasted about 5 hours on idle, and it came with almost 3 GB of bloat apps that can't be removed. the build of the phone is good, but its software isn't. one thing to note, I got zero bars with my sim, but in my other phone, same sim, full bars. this might be a defect or a flaw in the phone design.

    LG K3 review: a super cheap smartphone
    The LG K3 stands out from the crowd with a clever selfie snapper and a slightly different design, but it lacks much in the way of extras.Full Review
