I have had the LG 6190 for almost 2 years now. I do a LOT of texting as my husband is working in a different province, and my best friend lives in Southern Ontario. In an average day I send about 50 text messages, and unlike others, I have never encountered any issue with the phone powering off on its own. It does get noticably warm when talkign for extended periods of time, however, after owning the phone for so long, I have gotten used to it I guess - I hardley even notice anymore. My phone get charged once a day for about 4 hours while it's on - and that's it. I have not had to replace the battery and I have never had the phone die on me. I use the phone for business, so it does get used quite frequently (maybe 20 calls a day). I have encountered dropped calls, but only sporatically while travelling through country areas. This phone has been thrown across the room by my daughter, dropped in a toilet by my daughter, dropped on the ground at least a dozen times by me, and yet it lives! The batteyr is easy to pop back on and away you go. It has had its share of bump, scrapes, and drops, and only this past week has it seen real damage - the outer screen now has a crack in it. And now I am looking high and low to find a replacement LG 6190 with the fast-tap keypad. It seems almost impossible to find, and no other phone I look at even comes close to meetimg my expectations in look, functionality, and easy of use. I will continue to use this LG 6190 and I pray I can find another. It is an amazing phone and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who texts a lot and needs something sturdy and reliable. One drawback - the "Please Say a Command" button. I think it should be located on the tp of the phone not the side, that way you know where it is if you really need it, but it won't irritate you so much! All in all - A GREAT PHONE - Definitely worth it!
