Im in the same delima, i love this phone and im interested in it because it looks so good. Ive read the opinions which is on the home page,where they have gone through everything and it seems...features wise its not in the category of the k800i but people who go for this phone are going to be the ones who want a phone which looks good.My main concern was when you make/receive a call, if the touch screen would cause problems when its against your ear, but there is a feature which deactivated the touch sensitivness when making calls.
Im sold and im going to buy this phone this evening! :)
ok i have to ask this. i've seen this phone on many different sites and on some it's called the lg kg800 and on others it's the lg tg800 i just want to know if theres a difference cuz i want one and in canada fido has it now and they call it the lg tg800. if someone could inlightin me that would be great.
now now...i'm in a dilemia after having hearad so many negative and positive reviews abt this phone...
I mean i love this phone alright? but not all ppl seem to have a very gd impression abt this phone.
SO SHOULD I BUY IT OR NOT?
I was reading your review regarding this phone. The best thing for you to do is to go online, or call your Svc Provider to find out if they have this phone on their list, as one of the devices that was sent to homologation. If it is, it means that you will be able to load your carrier settings over the phone , by calling one of their reps. If not, no matter what yo do, you will not be able to access any internet service . As far as I know, this phone is an overseas model, capable of working here, but not authorized yet from any carrier. That was what kept me from buying it . I have a nokia 7270 with t-Mobile, but it's not on their list and I cannot download anything, not even ring tones, for the same reason I told you above, therefore it was not worth it to exchange....We wholesale phones too, that's why I know the reason of your problem.
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME.
I bought this phone for 350$, the pink one. KG800. The website said it was compatable with Cingular, so I spent 200$ to cancel my nextel account and get this phone with Cingular. I got it yesturday, I am paying 30$ a month for 3000 text and media messages and unlimited internet. However, everytime I go to get on the internet, it says "invalid settings". Cingular, Verizon, LG and who I got it from are pointing fingers at each other. SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN GET THE INTERNET SETTINGS PUT ON THIS PHONE. I AM DESPERATE.
Thank you very much for your help...I am clueless.

well i was thinking about buying myself a lg chocolate,but i'm reading all this comments and don't know what to do now... can someone tell how it looks like when you recieve a message,does it say who is it from or..? and how many massages can you actually save in inbox?
perhaps your phone is on "Power Save" mode why your keys don't light up. go to settings, display, power saving.... select "off" and they should light up
i've had it for a couple months now, and i really like it. Memory is kinda small... but i deal with it. There's nothing much to the phone, basic features really... its really just a beautiful phone.
only thing, i can't get to upload videos to it from my USB cable. i get the type of file it works with (3gp).. but it doesnt work. anyone know what's up with that?
My friend bought me this phoneLG KG800s few months ago. I don't know how to download music and the front menu shows "Cingular" that I actually use "T-mobile" as my carrier.Anyone here can tell me why? Thanks!
The term tri band technology is used to note that the phone can operate on three different bands. A quad band phone can be used on four different bands. GSM Networks in the the US use the 1900 network, so yes, the phone will work in the US.
any one knows please if i can use the phone for music only without active sim card, i intend to give the phone as a gift for a child.
The LG KG800 is a good phone and very easy to use. But the botton keys dont light up which makes messaging in the dark impossible!!!!!!! that is rather annoying if i knew that i wont not have got this phone!
i've had this phone since june . the touchpad is so easy to use ! and the amount of songs is pretty okay . honestly , the functions are pretty basic . the only bad thing i can say is that it doesnt work well with rogers =/ i was using fido and it was fine , then i switched to rogers and my phone started freezing up . maybe it's just MY phone that's like that , but beware .
it is not really a coment but a question: will the phone work in the usa because it is a tri-band and most companies use the quad band technology
Rogers released the LG Chocolate TG800 which is similar to this. Does anyone know if it also has the same problems as this one does?
Beth, the reason that is happenin is for one of 2 reasons,
1. your sim card is stuffed, buy a new one
2. the phone is locked to a network.. to check which network look at the 3 letters after your serial number (on the back of the phone) it is a code for the network in australia TEL=Telstra, OPT=Optus etc. contact them and see if they can unlock it
i've had this phone for a few months and think its great! i love the way it looks and have had no problems with it!
i don't see why people have to pick holes in evrything! It could just be that you don't know how to use it properly or you jus got a dodgy model. but at least give it a chance, its one of the best phones i have ever had!
well i got this phone on contract it gud so far but i dont know how you can put songs from the pc to the phone with the usb cable can anyone help me because i dont know.
this phones great.
