I have been using mine since 2006 and is great. It has been in a hot tub, dropped a million times and never have I had problems with it shutting off. It would be nice if the battery was more like 1600 mAh but I have both chargers and a spare battery. The reason I selected it in the first place was for the ext antenna, was working in remote locations and was able to connect to a booster and always had service. Would like to find another in case I lose this one. Less

I have had this phone for about 6 months now and im really satisfied. Its dated so no it dosent have a video camera but you dont really need that. The text pad is amazing and the flip and ext is perfect. Sometimes when I hit buttons too quickly when going through the menu to get to my text messages the phone shuts off as soon as i reach inbox (1/50). Other than the text feature the other 11/10 feature is this phone is indestructible! I have dropped it on a variety of surfaces and fell in a lake with it and it is still kicking! Overall this is an excellent phone and probably best for people who text alot or drop their phone alot Less

I've had this phone for over two years and I've never had a problem with it. Sure it turns off once in a blue moon... but then I turn it back on. lol. Honestly this is a rock solid phone. It's dated and missing a lot of the newest features (obviously) yet here I am looking through this site and I can't find a good replacement for it. And wow, I love fast tap. This should be a standard feature on all phones! If you can do without the latest features and do a lot of text messaging then this is your phone. Less

STupid thing shuts off

If the phone didn't shut off as much? I'd say this was one of the best phone that ever was invented. Hence the fact that I changed 9 batteries within that one year I had that phone in activiation.

If the phone didn't shut off as much? I'd say this was one of the best phone that ever was invented. Hence the fact that I changed 9 batteries within that one year I had that phone in activiation. They sent the phone back for repair and sent back to tell me nothing was wrong with the phone or the battery. Though IT STILL shuts off. One day? It kept shutting off and turning back on? Next day it refused to turn on again. I brought it into the dealership right away but the person that was working that day said that my phone was out of warrenty. From looking at these other reviews I guess it wasn't only me who was having problems. Less

LG 6190 with fast tap

For the people having challenges with the text messaging shutting off or "locking" their phone. Change your settings to automatically save outgoing texts. It is the "prompt" to save or not that creates a lot of these challenges. Also, turn off your phone for at least 10 seconds every 72 hours and then...More
For the people having challenges with the text messaging shutting off or "locking" their phone. Change your settings to automatically save outgoing texts. It is the "prompt" to save or not that creates a lot of these challenges. Also, turn off your phone for at least 10 seconds every 72 hours and then turn it back on. It's like rebooting a computer and I have found this helps. That being said, mine won't let me download ring tones from the website and its really annoying! Less

performance rating at 3

Hi, I have had my LG 6190 for 8 months and it was great at first. But, now it randomly shuts down. It's not the battery because I tried a new battery and it still drops my calls and drops my text messaging. It shuts down and re-starts. Hope this helps you in deciding whether to purchase this cell phone. Good Luck.

I love the fastap feature of the phone and the cam works very well in daylight and close proximity. Having the letter keys for text messaging is the best but I paid full price: $230 after tax for this phone (in between contract renewal) and with the technical problems I have had it was not worth the price. The phone was turning off and on by itself very frequently and buttons both letters and numbers not working properly. I Had mine in for repair 3 times so far and lost everything pictures, ringtones and contacts each time. Despite this I like the keypad enough to hang on to the phone untill it becomes unbearable to use. Although I will think twice before upgrading to the new fastap. Less

I have had the phone for 6 months, and for the first while it was great, but since then it has had very frustrating problems. Once in a while it would turn off and back on again, but it's gotten worse and worse with time. Now it's every second time I got to my text message inbox this happens. My friend has the same one, and another friend has the updated version, and they both have the same problems. One of them took it in to be fixed at Telus twice now, and they say they couldn't find anything wrong with it, yet it continues to have the same problem. I would never reccomend this to anyone. Less

My LG 6190 isn't perfect, but I do like it. The keypad is great, because I text a lot, and it has pretty much all the features I need. The only problems I have with it are that it sometimes spontaneously turns off (while fully charged), the side buttons occasionally stop working (they start again as soon as I turn it off and back on), and the camera is considerably less clear than when I first got the phone. The driving mode feature I could definitely do without, though I do find it amusing to hear a computerized man's voice say "Call from Daddy" Less
