I have owned many Virgin Mobile phones so far, including the Slice, the Aloha, and a couple others. I went looking for a new phone to replac my Slice. I found Virgin Mobile now sells the newest phone called the LG Flare.
Immediately I found the Flare to be superior to any of the other Virgin Mobile Phone I own. The first thing you notice is that the case is stylish and black unlike many of the other Virgin Mobile Phones. There are two LCD screens...one on the inside like most phones and one on the exterier. The exerier lcd displays the date and time as well as mail waiting, sound on/off etc at the top of the screen.
2 LCDS, ringtones, text messaging, web surfing, facebook application, and many many others.
The keypad is bright and the buttons large enough for even those with big fingers. There is a speakerphone and it is bluetooth capable (with limited functions). The phone is tiny but thats what I like about it, and the price $29.99 can't be beat. VM offers a pay as you go plan or you can get one of the more traditional plans if you like. Overall I think this is one of the best phons by VM, minus the camera!
