What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

I accidentally smashed my other phone, so I grabbed this to use for 8 months till I'm up for a new phone since it was under $80 for this and $200 to fix my broken phone. The resolution is a bit low compared to new phones now, but it will run all your apps fine and is fast and does everything you need.
For the price, if you have never owned any other phone or if you are 4 this phone is for you. If not, I would spend a couple extra $$ and get almost anything but this one.
Also, It doesn't want to sync my email automatically, not on "push" and not even on "check every 5 minutes", only syncs when told to manually.
Lastly, WiFi tethering doesn't work. You can download and install FoxFi or other similar apps, but the only way to tether this phone is through a USB cable (or probably by paying Verizon extra $), which really sucks, but it's only a matter of convenience (besides, you've got that cable in your pocket to charge it throughout the day anyway). However, there is apparently a way to make it work if you want to root the phone. Might just do that.
THAT BEING SAID, c'mon, for about $100 what the heck do you expect? This phone definitely performs better than expected for such a bargain price. I initially bought it just to hold me over for a couple of months, but now I'm thinking ,"ya know, I might hold on to it till it breaks". It's quite a good smartphone. My previous phone was the Droid 3, I'd say the Droid 3 (lasted me about a year) was maybe 15-20% faster (also, lacked 4G), but the LG blows the Droid out of the water with screen quality (both visually and touch sensitivity-wise).
Bottom Line: If you're looking for a cheap replacement smartphone (that has 4G), I'd definitely recommend this one.
Battery life (lasts me about 1/4-1/2 a day on average)
Email won't sync automatically no matter what settings I try
WiFi tethering doesn't work (without rooting), only USB tethering
No option to turn off 4G, not even if you download a 4G toggle app.
