Yo. I had a Sony K850i which only lasted a year and a half. A hunk of junk. I needed to get a phone - ANY phone, since I didn't like the phones being offered by my service provider. My wife went to Club Price and picked up the LG GB125R. It vibrates, vibrates and rings, and the battery lasts (features I wanted). It even has a speakerphone. I actually have only one complaint... When you receive a call, the person talking on the other end is waaaaay too loud. I have turned it down the the lowest level and I still have to hold it away from my ear. For that reason alone, I might take it back, but chances are I won't find anything cheaper. The calls are clear - NOT digital. I'm not an LG person but the phone certainly serves its purpose. Although the graphics suck, you get what you pay for. I'll give the phone a 6/10 simply because it's not something I'm going to keep too long... Bang for the buck, you can't go wrong. Less
Sorry. We didn't find any good LG GB125R videos yet. Please check back soon or contact us to suggest one.
