I know that many of the bad issued being posted about the arena is not realy true. The issue is with the arena user pretenders.
i can see alreadythat this phone will have many issues. I guess i'll pass to another touchscreen phone. sorry
what a pointless chat forum, no-one answers any of the questions. why bother?

Do you not have anything better to do, top tip your grammer would be a good start?
Hello, this is LG Electronics.
After time, the touch screen may become dorment and non-responsive, this is because it needs to be services. Prices may vary.
My questions are about the OS. What kind of programs could or couldn't install on the phone? We are in fornt of a closed OS?
Could I install The office pack on the phone to work with excel, word? And pdf?
i think that this phone is a copy of the iphone even the advert is when hes doig stuff n then he just gets a call n the homepage i like the iphones
I have this phone, generally niec to use but I agree with some of the complaints on this thread. One other thing no one has mentioned yet which is a BIG problem for me- the FM transmitter quality is TERRIBLE. I even got T-mobile to swap the handsetbut its still the same so I still have to plug in my £4 ebay transmitter to listen to music in the car. Boo
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2009Good phone but no 3rd party apps? no thanks.. No 3rd party apps? I thought the specs stated "Java Yes, MIDP 2.0" ?? It should support 3rd party java apps laa
Is there anyway I can install 3rd party apps from my memory card onto this phone and is there a website I could visit to download other apps?
This phone allows you to utilise the services of the LG private army, if you are being threatened by terrorist agencies. That is becuase you have to be a politician to qualify for this phone, money is not enough.

Can you tell me if you need to do something with the Divx? I cant even see it on my phone, I've had nokias in the past with RealPlayer which I could find within menus. Also I have tried to install and activate divx but the movie clip you are supposed to play on the phone I can't converted as the dixv converter keeps crashing at 90%.
I just wish this was all sorted out ont he phone at roll out.
Why oh why oh why does LG have to ruin a potentially great phone/hardware with stupid crippled software?
1. Divx - on Viewty could just drag most Divx files onto the phone's memory and then watch. Now a ridiculous conversion process using software you need to install on a PC. What a backward step.
2. Youtube - can stream from Youtube via mobile network but not via Wi-Fi. Crazy. Slow and expensive versus fast and free. I don't get 3g at home, yet forced to download Youtube clips at 2g speeds because phone won't use Wi-Fi for youtube. Crazy.
3. 300 EMAIL MESSAGE LIMIT - WORST OF ALL
For a phone that has 8 gig of memory and IMAP support, a message limit of 300 is ridiculous. Like really pants. How many people are going to be happy with an email INBOX that can contain a maximum of 300 emails? I guess the same will apply to texts too.
LG is showing how to do stupid things to ruin a potentially great phone. Its not like these are amazingly obscure things that users might want to do:
1. Divx support is generally thought to mean that the phone can play the files, not that you have to convert them. And dixv/xvid is the most common compressed video format by far.
2. Youtube is the most used streaming site on the web and Wi-Fi is ubiquitous whereas 3G is not.
3. Most people use email these days and have more than 300 emails.
PS I don't understand how all the reviewers across the web missed these terrible flaws. What use is a 3D interface if you can watch videos, youtube or email?
