    Makes me miss my LG Revere 3

    Compared to the Revere 3, this thing stinks. It's big, cumbersome and not very user friendly. One major complaint is the keypad shuts down while your on the phone. If you have to "press a number", you've got to press it twice, first time to wake the dang phone up. Also, reception isn't as good as the Revere 3 (barely get 1 bar at work, R3 got 2-3 bars). On the plus side, the sound quality is very good (hence 2 stars), but to me, that doesn't outway the bad. I used to design NEXTEL phones at Motorola. I'd be embarrassed to be associated with this phone.

    Bought for my father and he wanted to stay with the flip phone style phone. He said it took hours just to add in his contacts as he did not have them saved and had to do each one individually. There is no manual provided and had to go to the website for all basic instructions. He said there was over 200 pages of instruction's. May be a better 4G flip phone alternative with the changes coming to no longer support the 3G devices.

    It is wonderful to have an option for older people who struggle to make the transition from the older-style flip phones to touch screens. This phone is working well for my 80-something father, who finds change difficult. He was able to change providers and get a phone he could still understand and use. Simple, basic, and just right for those who just need a phone without too much fancy stuff.

    When we were shopping to find a phone for our daughter, we were having a hard time finding something that we all would like. We picked this one, because is in the style we had when we first started getting phones. We wanted something that would allow her to make calls and text off of. Plus with this phone she cant get on the internet or play games when she should be paying attention in class.

    The phone itself is fine with big buttons and moderate ease of navigation but very overpriced for what it is compared to the smartphones you can get. Watch out for Verizon hiking your bill because they class this as an "upgrade"! The camera is only 5MP, the screen resolution is even worse and doesn't do the camera justice. For the $168 price tag and Verizon lock in I was expecting more for the money.

    I had an Exalt 2 which went bad so got this one. I love it and to me it is like a mini smart phone. I can't afford smart phones but with this one I can connect to my home WIFI and can email friends or get on the internet. The camera is excellent. I had to email a photo to my homeowners association for a repair and the photo is great quality. Also has Cloud services for backing up stuff.

    This is not my phone :) I got it for my husband who tried smartphones and got extremely frustrated after 5-6 months. Then he used a texting phone that was my daughter's old phone until it fell apart. He just wanted to make & receive phone calls - that's it! This phone accomplished that but it is a little higher price than some - not sure why.

    My husband bought this phone because his smartphone was a chore to use with his arthritis. This phone is every harder to use. I am really upset that it didn't come with a manual. The online demands an extension to Chrome which I would rather not do. Right now, he was wasted a lot of time getting this phone up to speed.

    I got this phone for my dad, who had been using a Samsung Knack for almost 10 yrs! Although this is a “basic” phone, it has a lot of really good functionality and features; my dad LOVES it. It’s a wonderful phone for older individuals who prefer to keep things simple!

    We got this phone for my father-in-law because he doesn't want one of those fancy smart phones. It can take pictures, do texting, connect to his car and a few other things but he doesn't want all the apps and stuff that comes with a smart phone.

    This phone is fairly simple for people who struggle to learn more complicated tasks. Some of the labels do not clearly designate the tasks that they do. Like the button to answer phone calls coming in, is labeled "Send".

    We wanted a simple flip phone for my husband. It fits the bill in many ways but so many functions are not intuitive and we have to search the internet for how to do very simple things.

    Needed a new flip phone for Mom but she didn’t want a smartphone and it had to be a flip phone! Nothing these days but I found this one & we are very happy. Easy to use and it’s a rare flip phone!

    We bought this for my grandmother to replace a much older model. This works great for her & was easy for her to learn how to use. Thankfully, she can now take phone calls without using speakerphone in public.

    Does exactly what it says it will do. This is a simple phone for those who do not like to text or use the internet. Has bigger buttons for the elderly to see.

    I got this phone for my 83 year young uncle. He said it’s easy use and the ringer volume is loud enough for him to hear, we are all excited about that! The buttons are larger and easy to dail.
