The software has ugly looking same chineese phones software. Fonts are tinny. Clock at standby screen is small. Keypad is so hard especially above two buttons because they are connected without any seperate edge with other two hang-up and hang-down buttons. Tourch light is febble

I purchased this mobile 2 months before. This is one and only best 3 sim mobile. No problem of hanging or restarting till date. Battery back up is superb for 4 days with normal usage. Only drawback is Hard keypad and Chinese software used in this mobile. Otherwise quite superb mobile and i can recommend to all.

nice phone. long last battery (one week). basic web browsing. camera it's ok. the display it's ok. the best multisim phone option, you can predefine a sim to automatic select when you call, for each number from agenda. I have it for 2 weeks with no problems

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-07-30 16:52 from uuTW - click to readThere is no problem selecting which sim to use for calls or texts, I have a tri sim LG-A290 and I have no issues what so ever. To select either sim to make a call you move the side switch on the left of the handset until you select the one you want to use, i.e. Sim 1, 2 or 3. Once highlighted on the top LHS of your screen, that will be the sim that will be used to make the call. I have no issues using ANY of my 3 numbers. If you have any more problems just reply and I will be happy to help you.
David.

1. Is it possible to backup the received SMSes in the phone to your PC using the PC Connection Software of LG?
2. How long is your battery life during normal usage (just post shortest and longest battery life span you experienced in reality) ...

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
