I had the LG Xenon; my wife got one as well. We bought them on a Saturday. My wife's keyboard stopped working 3 days later on Tuesday; mine quit working the next day. The phone stopping recognizing the keyboard. When you slide the keyboard out, the icons are supposed to switch to landscape mode and if the screen is locked it's supposed to unlock. When we slid the keyboard out, nothing happened. When you press the buttons, nothing happened.

I did a review on here that's pretty much my take on the phone. But I didn't have space to mention the weird quirk when messaging. When you press the "caps" or "fn" (for an apostrophe, semicolon, exclamation point, etc) it puts it on a caps or fn lock which means that, for example, when you write "I" in the middle of a sentence you have to hit "caps", "i", and "caps" again. It's the same if you want to use an apostrophe: "fn", then the apostrophe, then "fn". It's kind of a pain.

I'm not saying that it's a bad phone. If only one of the phones mess up, we would have just exchanged it for another Xenon and moved on. But we bought the only 2 from the store and since they both messed up so quickly, we were afraid to be stuck with them for another 2 years.

Unless something happens, we are going tomorrow and get new phones again. I am 99% sure that I'm going to buy an Impression. My wife will most likely either buy the Impression or the Eternity. I'll let you know in a day or two what I choose and how I like it.
