newageBATMAN, 18 Nov 2009How did u upgrade the Phone !!I just took it to the LG care center near my house and just had to show the purchase bill. All updates were done free of charge within 1hr. No tokens, no unnecessary delays and great service with a smile.
photo quality is far far better then nokia 5130 xm or 3500 they just claim to be 2 mega pixel but they are less.nevin can u help me 2 use which software 2 enhance the picture quality.
I see that maximum people is complaining about the display colour and size LG gm200. But for me, the display is quite ok. The colours are all sharp and appears much more saturated. Visibility under the sunlight is also satisfactory for a non reflective TFT dispaly. The display brightness is superb when compared to even phones with 16M colour displays. The 262k colour feels a bit more colourful thanks to the brighter display. If the display just had a bit more resolution, then it would definitely beat all others in this segment. over all i want to say all as compair price this is very better mobile.
having gone through this forum on GM200, and having seen the review of many other brands, under this mid level segment, I finally zeroed on the GM200 and bought one 2 days ago, At the onset I must say although the appearance, is quite plain, on the contrary the multimedia features especially the FM and the MP players are really very impressive for a mobile phone which at the outset gives the average budget conscious user, an affordable set in the GM 200. Further more looking at one's health point of view its SAR is very minimal at .417 W/G which I think safe.
On the contrary, i noticed , that not many have commented on the SAR values of most of the sets, available under different brands, but point out few feature that need not be made available,for different market segments.
The GM200, is not a perfect set either, since it lacks a very basic, feature like personalized ringtone feature, and area information, which is informative.
conclusively, i must agree that this is a good set, with a very good battery life,( I initially charged it 2 days ago and its still running with average utilization).
A device that one can probably think of buying.
happy LG GM200 days!

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Sorry bro GM200 is not supported yet. it is better that you take it to the nearest LG care for updating the firmware. It is absolutely free and takes only about an hour. BTW they are releasing bug fixes and updates every week so if you planning to update, please let me know the changes.
Nevin Joseph, 09 Nov 2009Good New all GM200 bro's...

I talk too much? Ok.. what's poking you? Live with it and get laid or get some therapy...

sound is verry good in compare 2 all mobiles
RANJEET , 16 Nov 2009photo quality is very bad & zoom facility are not available in gm 200. sound is good quality b... moreWhat did you expect? A digital camera? It's just a music phone but I found out the pic quality to be better than any other phones in this segment. I have compared it with even Nokia 6233 the so called best 2mp camera phone and found out that the pic quality is actually better than 6233. The noise levels are appreciably low and the detailing is much higher.
Please do not look at this phone with prejudiced eyes. Tht's the problem with most people here. They still think nokia is the best at everything.
And dear friend if you change the resolution to 320x240 or VGA, you will get upto 4x zoom levels. But it is not wise to use digital zooms as it only results in degrading the pic quality. If you already knew this, you wouldn't complain.
I have some question.Please someone using this phone answer plz.
1.Can we install any other java application such as opera,ebuddy or games or themes in this phone?or it gives error messsage?

Thanks.I wanaa buy this phone.So i need to know these things.
photo quality is very bad & zoom facility are not available in gm 200. sound is good quality but compare to money did not fit in feature.
Hey guys, just made a battery endurance test yesterday. I was able to get 1 1/2 hours of continuous radio playback at full volume through the speakerphone, about six hours of music playback, about 10-15 texting and about 1 1/2 hours of bluetooth usage for transfer of files between the PC. And the battery came down only today afternoon. Got it fully charged in less than 2 hours.
Stranger , 13 Nov 2009Old Headset was not good for your ears.Becos u can feel pain after using that headset for half... moreThank God it supports 3.5mm jack. i hate these proprietary ports. It's just another way for companies to sell us their junk. I have three earphones which I use for different occassions. I use my OEM headset to listen to music while i'm in bed. It fits nicely and won't give you a headache. I do own a Philips SHH9700 in ear earphones which I bought for 1500rs. I don't use it often as inear earphones tend to give me a headache after a while. But it comes in very handy when I'm on long trips. Gives me excellent noise isolation and it is very easy to carry around. My real winner is the Sony MDR-ED12LP earphone. Been using it for almost a year. The sound appears as natural to my ears and no other earphones provides that much audio quality and wearing comfort as this one. It provides the perfect sound with the trademark sony bass for any kind of music. So in a way, 3.5mm jack is a real blessing and all my earphones are put to the best usage depending on the scenario.
I'd suggest you all to get a pair of Sony earphones and feel the difference.

I have found out that GM200 records FM using FHG (Guess) encoder @ 128kbps CBR. So naturally, the decoder must also be using Fraunhofer mp3 codec. I always thought that LAME mp3 encoder is superior to FHG and as it is open source, the most popular too. But after doing a bit of research on the net, I found out that the newest lineup of FHG codecs are superior to the LAME mp3 codec. It was confirmed by many audiophiles in individual blind listening tests. Fraunhofer is also the first to develop the mp3 surround and mp3HD. But I don't actually know if that would make any difference as most of my mp3 collection is encoded using LAME encoder.
