I've had this phone replaced 3 times now in about a year.

This phone is a nightmare, and I am stuck with this until I save enough money to get a much better phone and get away from AT&T altogether.

This phone's a great choice for those who want good features without paying a lot for it.

I don't quite understand why so many people complain about the phone locking after receiving a call. The answer is very simple. It locks so that when you put the phone to your head you don't activate commands via the touch screen. Think about it. You place the phone against your ear and the side of your face which can, and would, cause enough pressure on the screen to activate various commands. Also, there is a button conveniently placed on the side of the phone that activates and deactivates the screen lock. If I need to key in a number or get access to the touchscreen for any reason during a call just hit the button on the side, and Viola!, you can use it at will.

Overall, this is a great phone, with great features, great quality at a FANTASTIC price. Plus, there is a nice feature with AT&T's Go phones. Say you have a standard phone account with AT&T but want to upgrade your phone for cheap without having to sign a new multi-year contract. Just buy the Go phone of your choice and instead of using the SIMM that comes with the phone use the one from your old phone. I bought the LG Prime and installed the SIMM from my old phone and it operates like an unlocked phone. I have done this for my past two phone upgrades. It allows me to operate my AT&T account without having to continually lock into a contract just to get a decent phone at a decent price. Doing this, I can drop my plan anytime I chose or change it anytime I want.

I purchased this phone to replace my New ATT GoPhone Samsung A177. Now that phone was pretty slick and looked very simiar to a blackberry. It got great ratings on Amazon. However, each key on my previous Samsung was about half the size of a sunflower seed! Does your phone have buttons that small? Now in the heck do manufactures expect people to use those keys? I just couldn't stand it any longer and I had to get a new phone with bigger buttons.

Enter in my new LG Prime!


What can I say that hasn't already been said? This phone has pretty much everything you would need in a touch screen phone.

1) Still Camera
2) Video Camera
3) Audio or voice recorder
4) FM Radio! Which is unique!
5) Music Player
6) Scheduler, Calander, Note Pad,
7) Clock and Alarms
8) Email, Web, Text Chat, I.M.,

And two of my most favorite features:

9) Standard head phone plug jack which does not require an adaper. Not a proprietary connecter like some phones have.

10) Standard mini USB port for charging and data transfer. Not a proprietary connecter like some phones have.

11) Micro SD port so that you can put a micro sd card up to 15 Gigs in this baby and store all your videos and music and remove the card, put in a different card with more songs or transfer them from your pc to the phone. So in other words, you're not limited to just storing data on the phone only.

12) Speaker Phone! Contrary to what other people have said, this speaker phone works GREAT. I have had no problems with other people hearing me or me hearing them.

... And more!

What makes this phone easy to use is the fact it is touch screen!

I recently got this phone because I am now off my family's cell phone plan and I wanted a cheaper alternative to getting a contract. I was hesitant at first to get a pay-as-you-go phone, but as soon as I saw this phone being offered at at&t I thought I would give it a shot. I use my phone mainly for text messaging and the occasional call, so this phone is perfect for me (I got a $10/month for 1000 text message plan added to the $1 mobile to mobile plan).

As for the actual phone, I think it is great. I have never had a touch screen phone, so I don't have much to compare it to, but for a first time user of a touch screen phone it has been fantastic. It took some getting used to, but I love it. I haven't experienced any frozen screens as I have heard people complain about on other touch screen phones. The ring can be nice and loud if you want it, and the screen is very easy to read. You can change the font sizes too, which I know is useful for some people.

The only negative thing I can say about this phone (and maybe it is something that can be fixed but I haven't figured out yet) is that during a phone call the screen will lock. This is fine, but if you are calling your voicemail, or a number where you have to select options from a menu, it can get to be pretty annoying. Other than that, the complaints I have had about phones in the past (bad voice call quality, bad battery life) have not been present with this phone. That being said, I have only had it for about a week so we'll see.

Oh and the $50 credit makes this phone totally worth the money.


Ok, I have had this phone for a month now. And there are a few things I have noticed. Sometimes when I use the camera feature on the phone, the screen will flash and act really weird.

Verified Purchase
I am cheap when it comes to cell service. That's not to say I've never had a contract, I just didn't feel that I was getting my moneys worth. I overpaid even with the cheapest of plans. I don't talk very much and I'm a light texter. So for the last few years I've used prepaid services with cheap phones. I recently saw that not only did AT&T go to 10 cent a minute, they had added some better phones. I wanted to try a full qwerty phone, be it touchscreen or slider. Then I saw the LG Prime that not only was it feature rich but came with a 50$ credit. I did some research and red a ton of reviews and decided to give it a shot.


Being that I am a bit behind on current cellphone technology(I came from a LG600G, Tracfone) I instantly had a phone with a touchscreen, usable web browser, 2 mp camera, camcorder, FM receiver and -OMG- an MP3 player. Little did I know how awesome it was to have all this on a phone.

Music: By far the best feature to me is the MP3 player hands down. While its not the best sounding player I've ever had it is nice and loud. I can listen to it w/o headphones. I put an 8gb card in it and went to town. The FM receiver works ok but I mainly use the MP3 player. O yea, Praise God there is a standard headphone jack.

Internet: As I said the browser is usable. I will load full pages but I mostly go to mobile versions of my favorite sites(tomshardware, facebook, wikipedia).

Camera: 2mp takes decent shots and the camcorder is nice to have in a pinch.
