LG Electronics has a long history of being in the business of providing their customers with the knowledge and equipment they need in order to, as they say, make life better. LG has been involved in everything from TVs to radios and of course cell phones. In 1997, the company created the first CDMA mobile handset, as well as the first IC for DTV.
For customers of LG, their selection of phones at Verizon has a listing for everyone - those who enjoy flip phones, bar phones, and even smart and touch phones. This is especially great for those LG fans who are also Verizon customers, as many of the Verizon LG phones are offered for free as promotions, whether online or by coming into the store.

The Verizon LG phone offering is varied, offering smartphones and standard phones for users on what they are looking for in a cell phone. Verizon has several different phones that a person can chose, whether just for plain talking, messaging, or data use. All smartphones from Verizon will need to have a data plan added on top of whatever plan has been chosen and the price of the phone.
All of the LG phones listed on the site are eligible for free shipping and a good majority are offered for free or at a medium range price of $99.99. It should be noted that all of these phones require a two year contract with Verizon in order to get the special, and that for most, ordering the phone online also includes a $50 discount. These are of course the phones that are listed on the main Verizon website and may or may not reflect phones that are offered in a Verizon store or a Verizon product provider.
The best way to check out Verizon LG phones is to get information, features, and looks by consulting some of Bright Hub's reviews, and then going into your local Verizon store and getting in person information in regards to the phone you like.
