Recently My Girlfriend and Myself bought the LG Rumor phones when we were upgrading our phones. The deal they were having was incredible both phones for 99.99 with a $50 rebate. So far we are both very happy with out phones and short of getting a smart phone it has plenty of features.
It's really geared towards people that text a lot, But I've managed to use it for watching Movies, Playing mp3s and as an E-book reader. Once you add a Memory card the Media capabilities really take shape.
The Battery life is simply amazing, if I'm not using it for Book reading or media and just use if for Text and calls I can go two to three days with out recharging. When you do have to recharge it the charge time is about 3 hours from completely dead to full charge.
The slide out keyboard is a life saver for someone like me that has always typed things on a qwerty keyboard. Everything on the keyboard is easy to find and eve if you have big thumbs typos aren't that frequent. The only two complaints I have about it is the screen could have been a little bit bigger.The Other complaint is the Camera is only a 1.3mp Camera and the pics you take turn out rather grainy.
