Yes, I recommend if you live around the U.K. you should purchase frm Fizi & Omio.
& If you live else where, I recommend SelectGSM because they have the cheapest price and they deliver fast!
& Plemix, because my order came in fast too.
& I'm not sure about the rest of the places
Enjoy the phone :)
I love it!
has anybody purchased the phone off the websites listed ex) welectronics, plemix, selectgsm etc.

of course we have resources to repair the DNA, but even though...we must take some care!
we donīt need a study to reach this conclusion, so...i just want to advice people about this matter, that almost everybody donīt know!
thatīs why iīm trying to state that the lower the SAR, the better!
SAR level of a phone is a average number, calculated using a complex mathematics formula.
some time ago, there have been a few phones with just a 0.05 SAR.IT WAS AMAZING!but is was the phones "old days".LOOOL

Nowadays many studies are done about the phone radiations and all of them arrive to the conclusion that even though there is no proof (one need more than ten years to have a cancer), it is better to avoid calling for a long time (believe me or not but the SAR of 0.5 is already too much if you look at the details of studies done on rats).
camera is average and it freezes when going to txt mssge from playing music..its expensive and cracked keypad just makes it redundant cause of repair costs,,seperate 3.5mm jack needed and wifi destroys battery
the problem with the SAR is not when we use wi-fi. the problem is when we use it to make a call.
when smoking became usual, every company told it wasnīt dangerous.
i donīt need to read anything from any authority or commission.they can say what they want to keep us living a lie, just to sell a lot of phones.
of course we live surrounded by radiation, but when it is so near to our heads and so intense....why not to be careful and buy a phone with the lowest SAR possible??
OF COURSE PHONES WITH HIGH SAR MAKE HEADACHES to some people, and there is a real danger of cancer and other problems.
we just have to think we our heads, and not believe in some "authorities" or "commissions"!
OF COURSE WE CANīT PROVE IN A LIVING HUMAN BEING, but...everybody knows that this kind of radiation is dangerous, but we love "toys", isnīt it?
i love this toys too, but mine donīt have more than 0.5 of SAR.
iīm a doctor, and i know what iīm saying! and i donīt need any commission to make me believe what they want to be believed!
one thing is true....the lowest SAR, the better to our health!
until today nobody proved in alive humans that smoking leads to cancer, but...now everybody agree that there no doubt about this, isnīt it??
best regards to all!
(and is a stupid thing to throw people with reports from commissions and authorities that are "supposed" to be true!if we read their statements, they are careful. they donīt say that radiation isnīt dangerous, and they donīt state it is safe too!!right??)
For all people who complain about the high SAR level.
Have you ever thought of the wifi in your homes or in the streets? You would be surprised to know it. And now if you think that where you live or work , even with a wifi SAR lower than 1.6, you are exposed the whole day to radiation, you can stop thinking that this phone will kill you and you'd better switch all the wifi around you off!
Great LG for innovative Prodcut design.
today, i got my crystal. Great Design & concept for transparent keypad.
I like this phone very much.. Great job LG.. GREAT..
For all the people who are asking about the camera quality, I will be honest it is not that great (unless you take pictures in the sun during the day).
I also have a n97 at the moment and that takes better pictures with a 5mp camera than crystal's 8mp cam. So far the best camera phone I have used is the C905 but that phone has too many other problems (i.e. broken keys and faulty ear piece).
However, this is my first LG phone and I am really impressed with the touch screen/keypad capabilities. S-class is also top notch but it will take sometime for me to get adjusted to this change.
you @§§h0L3, 04 Aug 2009ahem... as u said, don't be stupid! in the specs it says that the function of the secondary ca... moreYou CAN take pics with the secondary camera. When you turn the camera on, go into settings > Swap Camera > Select Secondary. Simple as that!
SolidSnake, 02 Aug 2009Does the smart dialing support contact names or only the numbers? ThanksTo answer my own question this phone does support both name and number smart dialing.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2009does anybody know if they are going to release a NAM version of this phone?No word from LG at the moment about releasing the phone in North America. I just got mine shipped from the UK.
plz dun scare ppl off from such a great new phone just bcoz of the own defined SAR level!!
CRYSTAL SAR level is complied within the SAR limit for human body which is 1.47W/kg ( max for states is 1.6W and max for europe is 2.0W )
for your info , many full specs phone with wifi has over 1.0 and above SAR level. Like our dear Apple 3G has 1.388W/kg!!
The factsheets :
Federal Communications Commission (United States)
There is no scientific evidence that proves that wireless phone usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other problems, including headaches, dizziness or memory loss.
Singapore Health Sciences Authority
Up to the present time, all international and national committees that have evaluated this whole body of evidence have reached the same conclusions: that there are no established health effects from EMF exposures below the international guidelines limits
I owned VIEWTY : Best phone ever !!
now i owned CRYSTAL : even better / touch screen is superb and all other functions are simple and great. wifi is very efficient and fast.
only 1 bad point i found so far : camera of 8mp is not good !! viewty camera is much better although it's just 5mp..
for those dying for this phone , give it a try !! u wont regret!!
