Comments about LG® Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 No-Contract Phone:

This phone worked great for three weeks. I liked it. It has basic features and little else. However, after using the "Quiet Mode" one time, the phone will now go into quiet mode uncommanded at unpredictable intervals. I do not have the quiet mode scheduler activated. Beware that "quiet mode" is different from silent mode. Should your Optimus F3 fail and go into quiet mode, you will receive no alerts for missed calls, voicemail or texts received. Until the user manually deactivates quiet mode, the phone is a brick.

    Comments about LG® Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 No-Contract Phone:

    This phone is great! Although there is about 1gb of usable memory for apps there is a work around for that with or without root access! If you're trying to find out those ways go to .com/virgin-mobile-optimus-f3-all-things-root/ for more info on how to root your device and learn how to transfer apps to your SD.

        Comments about LG® Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 No-Contract Phone:

        Ive had it for two or three weeks. Overall I love it. The only two things that irritate me about the phone is, like others have said, it goes into quiet mode all by itself. I cant figure out why or what triggers it but every morning I wake up I look at my phone and its in quiet mode. When Im awake in the middle of the night it doesnt do it, but somehow it seems to know when Im asleep. It also went into quiet mode a few times at work when it was in my pocket(with the screen locked of course).
        Also it doesnt have a ton of internal memory, which I didnt care about because I was only interested in having music on a SDcard(32gb), but Im finding that the space in/on the phone is taken up kinda fast with apps and cant move em to the SDcard. Well I guess you can with a App but I havent looked into it yet.

        Buy a strong case for your phone and it wont explode if/when you drop it! The first thing I noticed was how the back(battery cover) attaches and knew what would happen. Luckily I already bought a really nice case thats hard plastic but feels rubbery soft on the outside. It also closes extremely secure around the phone and its VERY hard to take apart to take off.

          Comments about LG® Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 No-Contract Phone:

          This phone is a nice step up from my old LG Optimus Slider. More memory, 4G LTE, better power management, bigger screen. But the file transfer options are not so good. Can't really use the phone as a flash drive, like the old Slider could do. Sure, you can transfer files, but you can't mount the phone like a flash drive -- for example, to play music files directly from the phone on a work computer. The Wi-Fi file transfer is a nice addition, but I've never been able to get its password protection to work.

            Comments about LG® Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 No-Contract Phone:

            Nice phone. Battery life is outstanding. Good data and voice connections. Back of phone seems "slick" in texture. Always think it's going to slip out of my hand. Would give this phone a 4 or 5 rating, but after about a month, it started switching into "quiet mode" on it's own. Usually when just sitting ont he counter. This means I get no ringing on calls, texts or emails, resulting in the phone being worthless for anything but outbound communication. If it weren't for this, I would be extremely happy with the phone, but unfortunatly, not receiving inbound communications is kind of a biggie for a phone.
