I've not been able to use it since 10 days now. It's saying 'task terminated for phone to stabilize'. Meanwhile I've been enjoying it for d past 8 months. Pls help solve this problem. Thanks.

I use this phone now for over 3 months and I have found a few downsides:

Although the phone works fine in the UK, you can't get it to work with .co.uk email addresses, only .com addresses work!

Using standard outlook https access is not supported, so it's useless for most corporate e-mail boxes that use exchange with https.

Can't send e-mails to other than .com addresses, LG, the world is much wider than .com.

Can't upgrade the firmware of the phone as the software does not take the input of India as country of residence when the PC is set to another country.

Screensaver kicks in to soon even when set to 10 minutes the phone locs after about 15 seconds.

The volume does not keep its setting. When set to level 1, after one incoming call the second call alerts at level 5 and scares the living daylight out of you :)

LG is not helpfull to resolve any of the above issues.

Sad, as this is a excelent phone

One moth? that's if you are very, very lucky !! Ask me, or the owners of LG A290 Tri Sim with IMEI numbers 355727054458293/301/319. Their experience with LG A290 is a sad story. DON'T BUY THIS PHONE if you care for your money. The low price means nothing- the phone is not worth it.

seriously don't buy this model if you don't want to get disappointment.. you may literately cry after use of 1 months or 2-3 weeks..

this phone has good battery life and triple sim standby function work very well phone is also good for listing music long time up-to 1 full day...

but after use of 1 month problems will start about display which below guys mentioned
also not good for internet.. no speed since no EDGE.
opera, uc browsers also not working always hangs

Considering an LG Tri SIM phone? Don't think about it, if you want to avoid disappointment. The screen is so terrible that one can hardly figure out what is on display as it blurs out with series of jagged lines in few days of use. If LG has an iota of conscience, they would bow down their head in shame, a far cry from their good works on other models like the KP500. The long battery life and good reception quality of this Tri SIM is is not enough to compensate for the miserable screen performance. All who bought this model in the past two months in my area had the same experience. LG may be wise enough to advise itself for a withdrawal of this model with product IMEI numbers of the series 353937059201820/836/844/725 etc. Believe me, this model works well for a few days or weeks only.

The phone has a good/long battery life, clear sound quality, and excellent reception, my country's bad GSM networks notwithstanding. The screen however gave problems during its first month of use- goes off after less than 30 seconds showing only some series of jagged lines and white spots in between. To clear this, I either have to wait for the screen saver to come on, or had to turn the set off and on again to restore normal screen. Even after all this the screen comes clear for a fraction of a minute only before it goes blank again. Since I'm not aware I ever dropped the phone, I wonder whether my set came with an isolated factory fault.
