I have had the lg banter for two days now and it's really nice but i have had to charge it twice, it didn't even last ten hours of just being on. I don't have bluetooth on and i don't use for anything but texting and picture messaging. I am not a major texter and i don't call people. Anyone else have a similar problem?
Pros: Awesome looking
Keyboard duh!
Awesome camera
good speaker
Faceplates
Better screen than scoop 176x220 compared to 240x320
Bluetooth
Chat style texting


Cons: Slow picture message sending
No video Sad
Top half of phone feels really loose when open
Decent call sound quality

I just got the Rumor 2 a few days ago, and I haven't had any battery issues.You may want to call support for that problem.

This is a dumb question, but I have a question about picture message sending. I have no Data plan in my service, I only have a talk and text plan. Can I still use picture messaging? Is there anything special that I must do to my phone setting or to my service plan to use this feature?

I have Sprint btw. Any help from any Sprint users will be greatly appreciated. I think I may have to disable the web browsing feature, but don't want it affecting the picture messaging service.

From what I could tell I have to sign on to send picture messages, and from my understanding Sprint charges per kb used when online.

Anyways I'm a huge newb to Sprint. I switched over from AT&T, and the service is a lot different. Thanks for any help, and my apologies to the original poster for hijacking his/her thread. I'll let you know if I hear of any issues concerning the batteries. Thanks again everyone.

Hey its cool. The alltel store people said it takes three full charges before you can get a good idea of how long the battery will really last and now after just two charges i can say it has met and surpassed my expectations. Thanks all

o sorry i can't help with the sprint thing, just call the dealer you bought the phone from they would be more than happy to help Wink

As long as you have a picture messaging package and you are sending from the phone (not from a website ie. myspace, email, ect.) then it will not charge casual data. If you restrict internet access then you would also disable the ability to send/receive picture mail.

Also if you download the picture that you have recieved from the picture mail website to your phone, that is using data as well to do the transfer. So without the data plan, you get charged a casual charge per kilobyte.
