Opinions needed on this phone!

Whoever has this phone, what is your opinion of it? Is it decent? Are the ringers loud, what about overall sound quality? Battery life? What color is the lighting on the keypad, and is it bright? Thanks for any info ahead of time! Also is the front of it shiny? Will it be a fingerprint magnet? Thanks!

This phone is decent. It is pretty small and will be a fingerprint magnet, though not as bad as some. The lighting on the keypad is white and fairly dim. Ringers loud and battery life appears to be really good. The only thing that is really weird is when you have the phone flipped open when talking or whatever, there is a clock that appears in big digital numbers on the outside little screen. I don't see why you have to advertise the time when on the phone. I have tried all of the settings to change it and it stays there (turn outside clock off, etc.) That screen when the phone is in use or flipped open should say Verizon Wireless or just be blank. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response, Conway1! I was curious as to what this phone was like. I have the Adventure 750. I like it but it seems to be a little sloe in responding to different things. Not always, but I am noticing it more. I don't know if that's how Motorola's are or what. I've always had and liked LG's. But lately, Verizon hasn't had too many Lg's that I was crazy about. Thanks again!!

It's great. Ringers loud. Sound quality excellent. Keypad white and bright enough. Barry life unbelievable (good). Front is shiny and shows prints but hey they all do any more. Motos always better for reception, but LGs not as painfully slow...this is an entry level, inexpensive phone that still packs a punch imho.

Thanks for the info, mellowlen62! I will give this some thought. I love Lg's too, and I have the Motorola V750. I like the phone, BUT, it is slow some and lags, and I know that the Lg's are so much faster. So still trying to decide whether I want to keep this Moto or not. Thanks again! Very Happy

Well, I like Moto for call clarity alone. I think it's the best at that, and better than LG. But Motos do lag unbelievably at times, and LG's don't seem to.

Hi mellow! I will have to agree with you on that. Call clarity is great on the V750, but I also never really had any problem with call clarity on Lg's either. But boy, Motos do lag, and I have had many Lg's and like you said, they do not. Thanks for your input!
