    Back at the first of the year my cell contract was up so when I renewed I went to GSM and bought a crapp LG G4050 and the camera attachment because it was the best thing they had that wasn't a billion dollars.

    Well I went in to complain about the crappiness of the LG (which I started calling "the Less Good") and the acting manager Rick who I know from high school said they were taking all the LGs back because they only sold them for a short time and they have had a lot of failures.

    So he offers me a Samsung with a camera and a few features straight across, or for 10 bucks more a Moto V555. So I got the Moto. It takes pics, videos, the wireless internet works better, the screen is a billion times better, I'm pretty happy.

    So now I need to manually transfer all my phone book to my new phone.

    I dunno why I posted this... probably because I have no life and nothing better to do than tell Hondaswap about my temporary good fortune. :p

    I have an LG and it's a damn good phone, I've owned about 4 LG phones over the years.

    Then again the phone is only as good as the provider. I believe the phone I have is only offered by Verizon. plus it helps when the phone you get isnt some cheap ass $0.00 after rebate phone. unless you know someone working there. I believe I paid $99.99 after rebates for my phone, VerisonWireless has it listed at $149.99 after rebate right now.

    I paid about 100 after rebates for my LG, but my provider basically just bought a bunch of them from Cingular cause Cingular was dumping them.

    The 4050 just happens to be mediocre and outdated.

    I'm thinking so. It was the best they had to offer at the time, though, and I got upgraded for free to this sweet motorola, so I'd say it worked out :)

    Infrared port? USB developers kit ? OS SDK ? Internet addressable?

    My Siemens S40 was. What a great phone. Delicate little thing. I really miss it.

    what ever happened to "business phones"?!

    We've had cingular for over 5 years now..I always get their Motorola phones or sony erricsons...I've never had any problems with them...My wife in the other hand bought an LG ugly ass flip phone and the shit is garbage..It hardly has any features..and it just sux.. We get lucky because every year they give us an upgrade for free......

    my current phone is like 8 years old and it's an LG. it's a piece of junk.

    I had this Samsung N400 for years until I broke it 3 days ago.

    Did I mention the LG sucks?

    My friends all sported the LGs through highschool and at the time they were the best things out and had the most features. I will say that my friends were probably glad that they had insurance on the phones because they went through a lot of them.


    Myself on the other hand had a piece of shit zach morris style audio vox throughout highschool (okay so it wasn't AS big as his phone, but it wasn't a flip phone) that had no features but weren't liked a charm and always got good reception.


    I moved on in phones and now I have some chinsy LG that I got from AT&T/Cingular right before their merger was complete.


    I received a free motorola razr v3 phone after doing a free www.internetopiniongroup.com survey and waiting for about 6 months. The razr was nice but wasn't all it was cracked up to be. When I would call my girl on speaker phone, she couldn't hear me. I would have to call regularly and then switch to speaker phone and sometimes she could hear me and sometimes she couldn't. The phone also was kind've "laggy" while taking pictures and stuff of that nature and I wasn't very impressed. The phone felt so fragile and didn't seem like it had much to offer so I sold it off on ebay before I broke it.

    Back to the crappy LG, until I'm out of my 1 year contract in nov.

    i hate doing that. i had an i710 up until like 3 days ago. bought it for $100, had 2 mail in rebates, 1 for $25, 1 for $75. i forgot about the $25 one, but i got the $75 after about 3 months after i mailed it, which was about 3 or 4 months after i actually got the phone. my friend had an i730 that had no service, and she didnt have service for mad long, so i asked her for it and she gave it to me. so ha, a free i730.

    yeah the LG didn't save numbers to the SIM card. This motorola does, so this should be the last time I have to do it.

    fell onto it several times

    its a great phone that will never die
