Review: LG Rumor
I had intended to get it and sell it to someone else (once I had gotten myself a 6800), but I couldn't even do that to my friend.
Reason is, it's a messaging phone. Fine.
The Facebook application is kind of nice, but it's not accompanied by its sister site, MySpace. Actually checking for MySpace using the phone's RTT browser does nothing for the Rumor, either.
When you use AOL Messenger, two things happen when you're not actively using the AIM application. First (and most annoying), every time you get an IM, a text message is sent to your phone. Even if you could turn this option off, it's annoying enough for me to have turned it off in (literally) 9 minutes. Second, the notification sound for AIM is SOOOOO low that you can't even hear it unless you're in a quiet room. And there's no way to either change the sound, raise its volume, or even give it a vibrate notification. Lame.
On the other hand, the phone does look nice and it reminds of the Vox (which I still might get and unlock for T-Mo).
Oh, and woot for Sprint being the beat $99 deal yet.
