This phone sucks
Reviewed on Monday September 11, 2017 by Teresa Payton, Florida
This is long...This is my first smart phone, the LG Fortune. Purchased 8/24. I've been using a small tracfone for years. It never had problems. The fortune worked good for a week and a half. On 9/5: Messaging wouldn't work randomly. On 9/6 I couldn't dial out. It wouldn't connect. Just said calling. Call's came in but they couldn't hear me. Had to go to my dads to use a land line. When I did get heard, the calls dropped. It started working right that evening. 9/7 Repeat. Dropping calls, can't dial out, people can't hear me. 9/8 dead. 9/9 The display was flashing like an old crt monitor. Touch / tap went out. 9/10 Not dialing out, touch not working, lines in display. Went to my local cricket, but they were closed due to an incoming hurricane. Powered phone off and on many times. Touch/tap works then stops. 9/11 lines still on display. Touch works maybe twice but goes right out. Example: Got on the phone to check curfew today. Tested touch first. Messaging came up, calculator worked. Go to Google bar, no response. Tapped the hell out of several apps, shook it, powered off on a few times with the same results. Everything is closed today with curfew in affect so no cricket store. I'm using my laptop and old phone for today. I really hope they exchange it. Likely a bum phone. Some here had no problems with this phone. Others had the same problems. If they won't exchange it, other major carrier here I come. $142 up in smoke for phone and accessory's.
