Done with this POS phone

by chappie    Jul 20, 2009, 7:21 PM

I only got this phone because my old trusty LG VX8300, at the time held together by superglue and duct tape, finally died last fall. This phone never impressed me. There was always a gummy lag with all of the functions, the battery was embarrassing -- worse than some of my phones years ago -- and it just flat out stunk.

I even blew my wallet out on the Verizon rip-off price for extended battery.

Then, I broke the main screen on this 755. So for the past month, the only way I've been able to access my contacts is through the voice dial feature -- meaning a lot of shouted "NO!" and "BACK!" to the computerized female voice.

I pleaded with Verizon that I'd been a loyal customer for a decade, could I please get a discount on the new VX8360 that I would've bought anyway had it been released with my NE2? No sir. I would have to pay $210 retail! (Another totally concocted and garbage price for a piece of plastic).

But we found a solution. My wife, it turns out, was up for NE2. So she got a new phone, and I had the guy at the VZ store switch my number to her old LG VX9400. And I love it! I'm going to try to keep this phone alive for a few years.

Knowing Verizon, though, there's probably a timer inside it ready to go off, and it'll brick.
