Well first off which carrier do you have? I just got the Instinct through Sprint and I love it. A couple of my friends have the Rumor and the say that they are not very good, they cut off sometimes while talking.......But I guess it is just personal preference!!!!!! Instinct= better way to browse the internet, full keybad on screen, 2 batteries, excellent software, and even better; the Live search feature. Lg Rumor= slider touchscreen, not as loud as the Instinct, actually is not loud at all, but if you are a heavy texter, i would recommend the Lg over the Instinct since it has the Keyboard which would make it quicker than the touch screen of the instinct. LG shine= is just a downgraded version of the Rumor, DO NOT GET IT. is not loud at all either, and is not touch screen either. for the same price you can get a BJ 2. just my opinion. Instinct is way better, even better than the iPhone 3G

EDIT by Brandddoooonnnn: OK, obviously they have Sprint, those phones are only available on the Sprint PCS Network, anyways, the Rumor is NOT touch screen! Mine just broke, and Im planning on getting the Instinct. It has many features that are similar to the iPhone and has a wider touch-screen QWERTY keypad on it, so it will be slightly easier to use than the iPhone's. The Instinct is also great for T9 texting, which is really easy if you get used to it. Whatever you chose, dont get the LG Shine. The Rumor is OK, but its a little out dated and has a lot of glitches, although they are pretty hard to activate.

Is the lg rumor 2 a good phone from sprint?

Yeah its a very good phone. But after two years or more the phone might get a little damage or seem to not work as smoothly as it did before, but that happens to every phone i could think of. So if you were deciding what phone to get then the LG Rumor 2 is a great phone and I heard the Rumor Touch is good too but not as good as the Rumor 2
