LG AX390 (Alltel Wireless)

The LG AX390 is a basic cell phone for Alltel Wireless.

The LG AX390 is a pretty basic flip phone for Alltel Wireless. It measures 1.8 by 3.3 by 0.9 inches and weighs 3.2 ounces. It has an external backlit display with a color filter that displays information such as battery and signal strength, time, and caller ID, plus a full-color internal display. It's quite sparse feature-wise, having only the basics, such as text messaging, a vibrate mode, a wireless Web browser, e-mail, basic PIM tools, and a speakerphone. However it does come with voice recognition, as well as Touch2Talk, which is Alltel's walkie-talkie network, similar to that of Sprint Nextel's Push-to-Talk (PTT) network. It has a rated talk time of up to three hours and a standby time of up to four days and 14 hours. The LG AX390 retails for $169.99, but you can get it for $59.99 after a two-year service agreement with Alltel.
