Hello. My carrier is cricket and my current phone is the LG PM125, which is very similar to my favorite phone, the LG PM 225 pictured here,
which is the same phone but it has a camera.
My current phone, the LG PM125 started having a recurring problem a few months back. Texting works fine and always has. But one day during a call, the speaker switched to a loud continuous sound and it rebooted. Since then, any calls longer than about 2 min. cause the phone to go black as if I removed the battery. I SHOULD MENTION that these problems started after I accidentally dropped the phone one day.
So, I am guessing either I broke the phone, or cricket has updated their system to stop supporting the phone. I called cricket and the said to press *??? and whatever it was, that didn't work it said "update failed" or something.
My question is, since I will be forced to get a different phone sooner or later, what is the closest phone to the LG PM225? Features I need are the green/red indicator light, one hand(thumb) operation, clam shell shape, and an antennae that doesn't poke out. I really like the menu design/OS of the PM 225 but I might get a non-LG if it's similar enough and lightning fast to use, like the PM 225.
Thanks for reading.
