Great basic phone
I've used this phone for 6 months on a prepaid acct without any problems. All the negative reviews here surprise me.
I like the easy user interface, you don't need a user manual to set up. Battery lasts forever. No dropped calls with sprint.
If you want basic phone that makes and receives calls it is fine. If your looking for all the bells and whistles then go elsewhere.
This phone does not have all of the extra features that tech-fans seem to appreciate. Otherwise, this phone works great, is easy to use and has no faults.

The Phone Blows
The phone is absolutely horrible, the reception on the phone sucks. The only nice part about the phone is itâs free and itâs a flip. I would definitely avoid this phone like the plague unless you live right next to a PCS tower.
I've had better...but I guess it does the job
I've got Metro PCS Bay Area and I have to say (sorry LG) the other phones I've had with the same service have performed much better.
Kyocera 1155 - Good
Nokia 3586 - Great
Kyocera Slider - Good
LG LX1200 - not so good =(
I get dropped calls with in places where the other phones didn't. It's more of annoyance than anything - but does get the job done, however, I'm upgrading to the new 6255i soooooon!
The Phone is great it has held impact has fallen plenty of times and never Has had a problem.
It has given me great reception.
I would recommend the phone for young users specially for teenagers, since they tend to break cellular phones more often.
Phone has proved to be durable and long lasting its purchase value.
This Phone is Garbage!
This is the worst cell phone I have ever owned! I have had to have this phone replaced 4 times in less then 5 months! It wont stay charged and it offers very little features. It was given to me as a gift so I shouldn't complain however, junk is junk! It only has like 6 different rings and no alarm or voice command. The only pro is the size! Cons- Everything else!
There are some PROS to this phone. 1) it's very easy to use 2) it's the smallest pcs phone out right now, and it's cheap. It also offers a very low SAR Rating.
BUT this phone has some quirks, the battery life is no where near what it claims to be. If you play a game with the game sound off which is only supposed to affect the game according to the phones own screen promp you may find that your ringer is off and can only be fixed by restarting your phone. and it is strangely designed to receive text messages but you can't send any out or reply back. What's the point in that?
please dont buy this
I really cant say much about this phone, besides IT'S SUCKS
This is an awful phone
Much like the 1010 & the 4NE1 before it, LG has come up with an update of a phone that was a dog to begin with. A truly horrible handset, both in terms of durability & ergonomics. Why is it that LG can make good, even exceptional handsets for Verizon, but when it comes to Sprint, all they are is junky, junky phones not fit to be a boat anchor?
waste of money
This phone was given to me as a gift and I graciously accepted it. It worked fabulously for about 2 days. Then it became impossible to charge, the charging jack was screwed up and the phone would start charging when i plugged it in only to stop charging and repeatedly beep because there was a loose connection. It would never charge. I've subsequently had it replaced FOUR TIMES in the 8 months I've had it. Reception was fine until I got my last phone, it kept losing signal when it was sitting still on my desk or anywhere else in my house, which never happened with any of the other phones. All five of the phones i've had have had problems with the charging jack, overall just a horrible phone. Everytime I've got to metropcs to complain the only people in there have been complaining about the LX-1200. A friend recently went to metro pcs to buy a phone and they suggested that he shouldn't purchase the 1200 model because it was poorly made. Don't waste your money or your time
