I like the size of this phone very much. This does not have all the bells and whistles that a teenager might want, but since I use it only for occasional calls it is perfect.

I hadn’t reviewed this phone because I thought it was probably already too old. But I have seen two other people in the past month with the same phone, and one of those people had just gotten it, so it is apparently still available.

I really wanted a small, flip-top phone that I could carry in my jeans pocket. I would be happier if it were even smaller, but it’s not bad. OK, I make phone calls... but this does have a few other features.

The LG AX275 has a VGA camera. I have taken a couple of pix, and they look like cell phone pictures. What can I say? I haven’t bothered trying to transfer them to my computer or sending them to anyone. Supposedly it holds 100 pictures.

It does have a speakerphone, clock, calendar, calculator, voice memo (which I have used to remind myself of things), 30 standard ringtones, and more. You can set a different ring for text and calls. Vibrate is also an option.

It is pretty easy to use the address book, and there is room for home, office and mobile phone info, 2 emails and photo ID for each entry. If you start to dial a number that is in the address book it will figure out what you want and call it up. Or you can go to the address book, scroll to an entry and push send.

I have used the text messaging, but you have to enter text with three letters per key. It has that setting where it will finish a word that you start, but I turned it off because it drives me nuts.

There are quite a few other features that I don’t use at all. Most of them don’t work with the plan I have anyway. The point is, this is not the high-end toy for a real techie, but it’s great for making calls.

It comes in silver and deep pink.
