Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), also known as CMAS, is a part of a national alerting system called IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) that enables emergency management officials to rapidly disseminate the warnings and safety information via text alerts to wireless phones based on the phones’ geographic location. The Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA is responsible for receiving the alerting information and forwarding the alerts to participating wireless carriers such as Sprint. Such alerts may come from the President of the United States; the National Weather Service, state or county public safety officials. This system is integrated into the same national alerting services that serve television and radio today.

I've been a feature phone user with Sprint for over 4 years now. Over that time, I've used the Palm Centro, the HTC Snap and the Samsung Reclaim. This is my first LG phone, and also my first touch screen phone. I own an iPad3 and an iTouch, but I don't want a smartphone like an iPhone or Android because I don't want to pay a higher monthly fee/cost.

I've used this new Rumor Reflex phone for 4 days now. I give it an overall 3.5 stars rating that breakdowns as follows on the particular areas:
4 stars for the case/phone body - feels solid, not too thick, easy to pop off/on the back to remove/insert the battery and microSD card. GREAT that the phone can take a microSD card of up to 32GB!
4 stars for seemingly no problem with reception/drop calls, or sound quality on calls.
4 stars for an easy to understand and utilize user-interface.
3.5 stars for lcd touch screen - colors are bright and sharp, fonts appear clear and sharp, and the touch sensitivity of the lcd screen is decent (though not nearly as responsive as that screen of the iPhone or iPod Touch).
3 stars for the qwerty keyboard - the buttons are barely raised, they don't give good feedback when you press on them, and their placement doesn't seem natural. However, I think I will get used to it and type faster after a few more weeks of use.
2 stars for the battery. I barely get 24hrs of use even with the vibrate function turned off, with the screen brightness at level 4 (10 is the brightest), and I don't talk or text very much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great phone for non-smartphone users April 5, 2012
I'm against paying for a data plan on principle, so I've never owned a smartphone. I need a phone for calling/texting, and previous had the LG Lotus. I LOVED that phone and wished that LG had kept it, but you can only get them used now, so I decided to upgrade. I was going to get the LG Rumor Touch, but when I went to the Sprint site, I saw the Reflex.

So far, so good. I'm new to the touchscreen, but I'm getting used to it and I think I will love it. The 3" screen is a good size, the camera is decent and the battery only has to be charged every 3-4 days, which is the best I've seen from the phones I've owned. Best of all, I love the fact that this phone can be locked and doesn't unlock when a text or call comes in, therefore there's no butt or purse dialing.

1.0 out of 5 stars A phone with much promise but VERY disappointing April 14, 2013
I tried really hard to like this phone.

I received it as a replacement for my damaged but much-loved Samsung Rant, so perhaps this review is a bit of an unfair comparison. But the Rumor Reflex just does not measure up to the Rant, even though it's several years newer.

I love the Rumor's big screen, and I love having a touch-screen - touching the screen is just so much easier than trying to manipulate cursor-control keys. But I'm afraid the good news ends there. This phone just feels like LG should have tried just a little harder -- just a bit more effort and this could have been a great phone, but this thing feels like no engineer ever bothered to use it to see if it's suitable for humans. Because, frankly, it's not.

I use a phone about 80% for texting/messaging, maybe 15% for talking, and 5% for web-related tasks. I assume that anyone who purchases a phone with a slide-out keyboard is probably, like me, big time into texting. So the keyboard on a slide-out-keyboard phone should be well engineered - it should work really well, or why bother including it?

This phone's keyboard is its worst feature.

First of all, the soft plastic keys barely provide tactile feedback - I can barely tell if I've pressed them. (If I didn't need tactile feedback I'd just use an on-screen keyboard, right?) The key layout of this keyboard is all messed up because the bottom alphabetic row is split by the space bar, making it awkward to find the keys you're looking for -- it's just not a TRUE QWERTY keyboard. (Actually, the space bar isn't a bar at all, it's just two keys with a single cover over them.. don't press it in the middle or it won't register - you need to press it in one of two sweet spots..).

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! November 29, 2012
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! This phone has a defect where the phone shuts off every time you check your email. The phone locks up constantly and you can't get on the internet. I have tried contacting Sprint about this problem and finally called LG-the manufacturer of the phone.
No one is willing to take care of this and I have only had my phone since June 4th and have been calling on this phone for 2 months!
Do not buy this phone!
Also the sprint authorized store customer service was aweful! Rude employees-was in there an hour and not satisfaction.
LG knows they have these problems and are still unwilling to send me a replacement.
Spring store in Fairview Heights, IL told me that this phone is "known" for having this problem shutting off when checking your email.
LG wanted me to pay shipping, send in my phone for-who knows how long? Aweful customer service from Spring and LG!!!
This is my last LG phone EVER. And when Spring contract is up-I am done!
Lots of internet reviews on this phone shutting off and locking up.
Lots of disappointed customers.
