well as a phone its okay. i had it for a week and i had to return it because for no apparent reason all my phone memory was used up. i never bought any apps or ringtones. anything that would use any memory. i had a sd card which still didnt help. so after calling verizon they told me to just return the phone which i did. i just traded it for a new one. and at the moment my memory is slowly dissapearing. after the memory is gone it will not let you open the internet. also after i'm on youtube for awhile it'll quit working for awhile. usually until the next day. other then that it would be a ok phone. verizon also said they been having problems with the extravert.
So, now that it's been several weeks - do you still have the phone and is it still having the memory problems? After reading your post and another in the forum, I sent a note to LG asking if they had a fix or were working on one. I got a note back that said "The software update that was recently released was to resolve the low memory issue. Attached is a copy of the VN271 SW Update Guide." and there was the .pdf file on how to do an update. Just wondering if you tried it and if so, did it work? Thanks
