I do not understand why LG did a stealth launch on this phone. They never told us about this phone, one day it just showed up. Thus far, most people do not like the PTT phones because of the 'no camera' feature. So far, this phone has seemed to work as good as an LG can work in teh desert southwest. LGs dont seem to fair too well on our 1900mhz system. THe speaker on this phone is BOOMING, and just really loud. the layout is nice. Hopefully, LGs in the future will be like this.
