Makes it Easier Than Ever to Manage Messaging, Voice and Data Needs for Any Budget

Sprint (NYSE: S) and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones) today announced the upcoming availability of the LG Rumor2, the next generation of the highly popular and successful LG Rumor. Perfect for customers who want an affordable phone that keeps them connected just about anywhere they go at a great value, the new LG Rumor2 features a full sliding QWERTY keyboard for enhanced messaging, email and social networking as well as stereo Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera and a large QVGA display. It also features a removable backplate, allowing users to personalize their phone. LG Rumor2 will be available exclusively from Sprint for just $49.99 with a new two-year service agreement after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The original Rumor by LG quickly became one of Sprint’s best selling CDMA devices when it launched in late 2007. The new version packs value and productivity with an expanded QWERTY keyboard with an additional row for easier typing, increased screen resolution to QVGA clarity, stereo Bluetooth and an extra enclosed battery cover for greater personalization options.

As a perfect complement to LG Rumor2, Sprint offers an affordable Everything Messaging Plan that lets customers take advantage of the phone’s messaging features at a great value. The plan includes 450 anytime minutes, unlimited night and weekend minutes starting at 7 p.m., unlimited mobile-to-mobile minutes, plus unlimited text, picture and video messaging — all for just $49.99 per month (excluding taxes and surcharges). This plan provides a savings of $120 per year vs. comparable AT&T and Verizon plans.1

“LG Rumor2 gives customers the benefits of Sprint’s Now Network on a phone that’s attractive and affordable, appealing to anyone who needs the ability to quickly send off a text or PictureMail,” said Kevin Packingham, Sprint’s senior vice president of product and technology development. “Staying connected to your family, office or even social networks has never been as easy and cost-effective as it is with the pairing of this device and Sprint’s Everything Messaging pricing plan. In today’s economic climate, it is great to know you don’t have to compromise to get a good value in wireless.”
