Communications & Internet
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 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.Read more ›
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. I get four bars everywhere I go.
2. my battery life spand lasts over a week if I dont txt on it or if I dont have it on vibrate. even then If I talk, text, put my phone on vibrate, It dosen't die in four hours, it dies like in eight hours.
3. Pictures, okay people it will be crappy because you are on a phone camera. The most impressive pictures I've seen on a phone is on the new iphone which are clear and bright.
4.Recordings, I think its excellent because I decided to go outside in the recient hurricane we had,which I recorded without a problem, the sound was clear and the video came out clear.
5. The touch screen is very good you dont have to pound on it like other touch screens that I played with.
The only things I dont like about this phone is listening to the mp3's that you just downloaded to your sd card which is annoying that you have to go back and click on each song you want to listen to. 2. Ringtones, you cant add your own so you have to spent $2.00 which is overpriced for one ringtone.
And if your battery dies in four house 1, you need to get a new battery some of these phones they use recycled batterys so give your mother back her pink panties and get a ney battery. 2 you bought a used phone, which is dumb because you don't know what happend to the 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..).Read more ›
