AT&T's LG A340 would be a decent voice "dumb" phone except that AT&T and LG have loaded it FULL of junkware that CANNOT be deleted. Ignore what you might see on the AT&T web site - NOT ONE of the numerous preloaded junk apps has a "Delete" option. This phone is designed to trick you into using data. Here are the apps that I cannot delete:
- Star Tweets
- Pac-Man Champion
- My-Cast Weather
- City ID
- Mobile Web
- AT&T Navigator
- AT&T FamilyMap
- Social Net
- AT&T Radio
But wait - it gets worse!! My speed dial menu is ALREADY POPULATED with the following AT&T numbers that always appear at the top of the list and CANNOT BE DELETED OR MOVED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST:
- AT&T Check Bill Balance
- AT&T Customer Care
- AT&T Directory Assistance
- AT&T Pay My Bill
- AT&T View Data Usage
- AT&T View My Minutes
- AT&T VoiceDial
Because these seven appear at the top of the list, the speed dials for my family members DO NOT APPEAR ON THE SCREEN unless I scroll down. THERE IS NO WAY TO CHANGE THIS.
I have now spoken with AT&T four times about this. AT&T has finally admitted that NONE OF THESE CAN BE DELETED OR MOVED.
So - it's your call.
PS - AT&T rejected the above review from their forum web site.

Mr. Parrish: Your post misses the point. This junk is in the way and tries to make the phone use data. It is so bad that I've had to ask AT&T to turn off my phone's internet access. City ID continued to pop up at the end of calls until I finally sent many emails to the app's maker Cequint and got them to send an IM to my phone that disabled the damned stupid app.
