    I have had this phone for over a year now. It was the most advanced phone that Virgin Mobile offered at the time I purchased it. It is a good phone but it does have some issues. My main issue is that sometimes it crashes. Just out of the blue it will restart itself. Also when you click on an email link in Opera Mini it will give a fatal error message and crash. The phone slows down a lot when you have the email app in the background. Ive not had any problems with the touch screen at all. It works excellently. The GPS does take a while to lock in Google Maps if you are not outside and sitting still. The battery does have to be charged on a nightly basis but it does last all day during moderate usage. I have dropped it on concrete several times and the screen was not effected at all. The camera isnt the best but it is nice to have. Would be better if it had a flash. The full 5 row qwerty keyboard is the best part of this phone. All in all I have been pleased with this phone. I would recommend it to others and at under $100.00 its an affordable options for those who dont necessarily need a smart phone.

    Probably. In most states. But i bought this VM LG Rumor Touch at the ‘red & white rings’ store when it was on sale. Overall it’s a great electronic device. Amazon and virgin mobile’s site does a great job of describing it and telling you what to expect. I’ll share just some impressions and not-so-great-things about it. But make no mistake, i’d recommend this easily.

    * mp3’s come through clear and crisp in external speaker(headphones and usb cable included)
    * that 3″ touchscreen is nice compared to my previous 2″ screen on my last cell. it’s like going from standard def to HD(sorta)
    * pics are good and sharp. my shaky hand and some pics look blurry when in camera mode. but once you take it and view it, it looks great. thanks image stabilization(or a variation of it)
    * micro-sd slot is great for adding lots of mp3’s. have not figured how to transport pics and vids to the sd-card slot to view on my camera yet. but then, i’m an idiot with gadgets. (figured it out, just go to tools>mass storage>file manager)
    * qwerty keyboard is fairly spaced out for me, but if you got big/chubby fingers you might have problems.
    * i’m a cheap, so i only pay $25 a month for this phone, total! i get 300 anytime minutes for calls, unlimited texts/pic msgs(not including the free messaging through social networks and emails), and unlimited web access. do i need to even repeat that? of course, higher plans with more talk minutes are available as an option.
    * 3G built-in(but no wi-fi). Spotty at times, but mostly consistent and reliably there when you want to surf the web.

    * not very good video playback in camcorder mode. it’s serviceable, and at least the option to take videos and watch them is there. just don’t expect high-quality.
    * you can customize ur pics, but nothing really special or extensive. worse, you don’t seem to be able to organzize your pics into specific albums(i will apologize if this option turns up, but i can’t find any extensive options to organize your pics)
    * scrolling through long lists is imprecise and can be frustrating.
    * you can’t seem to assign your mp3’s as ringtones.
    * the default is an ‘unlock’ screen where you slide to unlock it to access your phone. doesn’t bother me much, but i decided that i would leave my cell unlocked cause i could see it might annoy me if i had to unlock it with some code or procedure, no thanks. besides, it’s not like i have government secrets on my phone.

    Overall, great phone(i’ve actually used it for calls a few times and the reception is good and i live out in the boonies sort of), tons of features, and a cheap monthly plan for me with other options for others. Highly recommended.

    This review is from: LG Rumor Touch Prepaid Phone (Virgin Mobile) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I LOVE THIS PHONE, i dont know what other people are talking about the phones plans being expencive? I pay 25$ a mo. plus tax, and i have unlimited data ( email, IM, Facebook, Youtube, google maps which has gps) and unlimited texting along with 300min a mo. there is no latefee for paying the bill late, they just change you date of payment. Is able to play music from sd card, has a camera and its just my favorite fone from virgin mobile. i have owned 5 other virgin mobile phones and this byfar is one of the best that they came out this so far. I bought this phone 09/2010 and am still using it. facebook stil works it just needed to update settings for a couple of days. so if you want a phone for a good price and good monthly price you should get this. other plans are unlim. tex and data, and (i think)500-900 min for 40$ or unlimited everything for 50$.
    its alot better then those smart phones with their extra charge for 3g/4g network, works just the same.
