I ordered this phone after looking at Samsung unlocked phone also , finally decided on lg. the phone is not complicated to use since I basically need it for calls and text and it does the job fine. the manual is light on details , however thru a little error and trial all is fine and you can manage it pretty good.
I subscribed to "lycamobile" and they are very cheap and very good . I signed for pay as you go at 2c a minute and text at 5c with no time frame limit. I had to call customer service few times and they were quick and prompt!!
al and all its a very good phone for a light user who doesn't want to be locked in an expensive contract.i give it a thumb up !!
