Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic phone Wanted to downgrade cuz smart phones seem to make really dumb people. All I was doing was scrolling down on pointless internet garbage. Super basic Phone works fine. Took a bit to get used to, but Makes calls, receives texts, and Has a voice mail. Pretty much all a person really needs. Best part is Now I don't waste hours a day needlessly poking at the internet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG True phone review I purchased this phone because I wanted a basic talk and text phone. This LG is very similar to another phone I have with a different carrier. I am very satisfied with the features and performance of the LG True. The sound clarity is great and it is very simple to use. Some reviews have criticized the vibration which alerts the caller that the phone has been answered. That is nonsense! This feature is quite practical and helpful and it is not annoying at all. It is very beneficial to know when the call has been answered and it allows the caller to not have to pay close attention to each ring to be ready to speak when the ringing stops. I can do other things while the phone is ringing and this is a great benefit! Plus, the battery life is adequate. Basically, the phone is well made and very sturdy. And. the price was reasonable. So far, I'm quite satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Flip Phone! A return to a simple, reliable great flip phone. It has all the features I want. It is simple to set up, simple to use & it fits in my pocket. I live in an area not known for cell reception & the LG True gets awesome reception. I wish I'd done this years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little phone This is a great phone. It fits in your pocket and can feel the vibration when it's ringing, so no missing calls easy to use and you can actually hear the caller good. Love and would recommend this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy, straight forward I have had my LG true phone for about a month now and I am glad I decided not to buy into a smart phone. I enjoy the simplicity of this type of phone and it fits all my needs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work out of the box. Still broken?! Sadly it seems to be a good basic phone. But did not work out of the box and Cricket has still not fixed the issue. Dissapointing

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG True It was the only choice in a flip phone and is too small for a senior. I had to purchase a larger flip phone from Verizon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cricket Customer Service was Horrible I wound up cancelling this phone, along with my other two Cricket phones, the day after I received this one. Customer service for Cricket was awful. I went to Verizon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Phone I bought this phone for my grandmother and overall the phone is good. The only problem that I had was when we received the phone I had to go through so much to get it activated. The whole process wasn't easy at all and I spent the first few days on the phone with a representative trying to get the phone activated. You need to come up with a better process with that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very hard to understand callers The main thing I notice about this phone is the distorted and garbled voices of the people I call or who call me. They are extremely difficult to understand. I did not have this problem with my last flip phone. Some buttons are also very small and a problem for my hands, but that may be because I am a senior and old hands don't work as well as younger hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Basic phone I bought this for my 12-year-old son. Great phone for the basics of text and calling. On a side note, my son wanted to know how people texted without using a touch screen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not what i expected sorry to say I returned this phone a week after I bought it because on the second day of use it quit sending text messages for me and also I couldn't send MMS messaging. I really wanted it to work for me because I was ready to go back to a small basic phone and just talk and text but the only way you can really do that with ease is to have a smart phone. I ended up sending this LG True back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks and feels great if I could use it So far cannot figure out how to add and use contacts to use this phone. Will have to go back to the great guys at Cricket store who helped me when it first came. Really am too busy to spend so many hours every day trying to get it to work.
