This is my third Verizon phone and I was up for renewal again at the end of last year. I loved the sleek look of the new chocolate phones (greater colors out now!) and decided to go with the white version. I'm not a high tech person that needs all the bells and whistles, just need my address book, be able to hear my phone ring even from the bottom of my purse, have the battery last more than a couple of days and take an occasional picture. I like this phone a lot, had trouble with the sensitivity of the keypad at first but I adjusted that. I don't use the VCast Music capability or MP3 player option. I do like the large easy to read numbers when inputting a phone number This LG holds a battery charge longer than any phone I've had so far, usually a week, sometimes 2. I love the thin sleek line and it fits easily into any little pocket in my purse or coat pocket. I will probably get the newer version that has come out when this contract is up, either way, Verizon people are the greatest.
