Find it hilarious that VZW forgot a important thing....
Bluetooth usage is horrible
You have to put your headset in pairing mode and then go through several menu screens on the phone EACH time you pair the headset with the phone.
With my Sanyo Pro 200, you only have to "pair" it once and then and quickly connect that headset at anytime in the future without putting the headset in pairing mode and going through several menus on the phone.
I just sold my Rumor 2 after 1 month because of this problem among other annoying things (e.g., outbound call quality is bad).
Pictures on MicroSD card
Mother in law has this phone and I'd like to give her some pics to tote around. The pics are on the MicroSD card and you can see them when you use the Memory Card Manager but not when you use the My Albums feature. It reports "0 pics" on the memory card.
Sprint LG Rumor on Virgin Mobile
phone decides to 'store' a message
sent is when my friends text me; store is when my phone finally tells me i have a new message

I just got off the phone with US Cellular and asked about the LG Banter. Apparently, they aren't currently offering it due to "software issues."
Rumor 2 Over Rant??
So far so good
All together I paid 39.99 for the phone. They gave me a $50 mail in rebate, along with a 10% in store discount. For the price I paid, I think this is a great bargain, and I couldn't be happier.
I'm still getting used to the Sprint service though. Unlike AT&T, If you didn't sign up for a data plan, Sprint still allows you to surf the web and such. Whereas AT&T disabled that feature if it's not included in your plan. I guess it's a way for Sprint to make a little more money by offering the option of the service.
