I just bought the LG Spyder II a few days ago and so far so good. It hasn't been giving me any problems. I'm really liking this phone so far. It's alittle high tech, but that's not a down side for me. It's touch screen with a full slide out QWERTY keyboard. One thing about the keyboard is you have to be careful when pressing the buttons not to press other buttons, but you just have to get used to it. There is a built in Acceleroemeter that automatically turns the screen from portrait to landscape. With that being said, there are actually 3 ways to text message. You can either use to the slide out keyboard, turn the phone sideways and a on screen keyboard pops up, or if you hold it the portrait way without the keyboard out you can text on screen like a regular phone. So I think that is a very good feature just in case your not ready to give up texting the old way. It has a built in camera and camcorder with very good quality. It has Bluetooth capabilities where you can store up to 20 Bluetooth pairings. It has a music player and you can either play music out loud or there is a earphone jack at the top. It has a microSD slot for a memory card that you store music, pictures, etc. on that supports up to 16GB. There is up to 300MB of available end user internal memory. There is a joystick/scrolling key for easy navigation. You can also scroll with your finger on screen. This phone really has alot of features to it and I think it is a good phone. If anything bad happens I will post a updated review on it. As of right now, I like this phone!
