The Bottom Line The LG Rumor Touch is a touch-screen phone for Virgin Mobile that is geared especially for messaging fans. The LG Rumor Touch is a touch-screen messaging phone from Sprint with a user interface that makes text messaging a breeze. Though you won't get blazing data or processing speeds on the Kyocera Event, as an affordable smartphone it's an excellent choice. The LG Rumor2 is a great option for a messaging phone, but LG missed the opportunity to make it both new and improved.
