Problems - Problems!

I am a 50 year old woman, which means I have owned and used thousands of products/items through the years. From big items, our home and vehicle, to small items, toasters, straightening irons etc. I think I am safe in saying, this LG phone is the worst product I have ever experienced!
To be fair, we were on a timeline when I purchased it, which is never a good idea. My father-in-law was gravely ill and living in a different city, which meant we would be travelling, and my old cell was no longer reliable. I did not think I would be comfortable using a cell without a physical keyboard, and this LG was all the outlet had, with an actual keyboard.
It worked fine in the beginning, and for approximately 2 years, then I began experiencing problems especially when trying to go online. (And please before anyone suggests it, it is not our home Internet source that is the issue) It takes forever to connect, I can go online, leave my phone for 5 minutes come back and it is still trying to connect. If I touch the screen while it is loading, it freezes, I have to go back shut down the search engine and start all over. Just lately, it has taken to the screen going black! Touching the ‘home‘ button does nothing, nor does trying to shut the power off. I have to remove the battery, leave it out for 10-15 seconds then replace it.
I did take it back to the outlet a few months ago, he said they would have to send it away and give me a loaner. Since my contract is up in May, I will suffer through the next 4 months, then proceed to take a sledgehammer to it! Save your money, and plenty of aggrevation, and take your time considering your cell purchases!
