OVERLAND PARK, Kan. and SAN DIEGO -- 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 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).
