LG UX280

I have had this phone for over a year. Love the big numbers, and wanted an LG because I knew how it worked, but I have had a lot of issues with this particular phone. I have had the software in it reinstalled several times. Most kinks have been worked out. Just one remains. I frequently use speed dial numbers, and quite often, even if I press a number, it doesn't work the first time I try. The number just doesn't register on the screen. And other
times, for example, when I enter my password when checking voice mail, only four of the five numbers register, but I still get the messages. Of course, it never acts up at the cell phone store. Has anyone else had this problem?

In Canada, the Wine is sold through Bell Mobility and I got him one and he loves it! It has a loud speakerphone, great big keys and fonts (albeit not TOO big) and it looks sleek (unlike the Jitterbug senility phone).

Also, it has an amazingly large and bright screen which my dad actually needs. It also works well with Bluetooth and he likes the hard key shortcuts, with the pictograms.

For us phonescoopers, it is a basic phone that lacks EVDO, high resolution camera, external memory port and MP3 player. It is a basic camera phone that looks sharper than what is out t...
