I did want it to jump and kick over the fone several times it turns me mad with the inapropiate touchscreen response. and the %!≠%&!ing Divx/Xvid video. Its a complete night mare.. and a total frustration. better forget about this and wait technilogy to run a litle in time to see a real nice work touch devise.

accessing the frozen music (icon) player. i had the same problem, the cure, delete all your mp3 music, access your file from MY STUFF, better backup all your files from the lg suite first, then do a factory reset by pressing 1809#*900# on your dial pad and select 'Factory Reset' (be sure to back up all your stuff like contacts, pictures etc before doing this. It wipes out everything)
then download all your files again..it works...and you'll have your music player again working.. thanks to dyna storm, this is his advice from lg forum trouble shooting... it works !!! enjoy your arena. its a cool fone.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I'm afraid there is no way to set a PIN code to lock your phone. However, there is a way of setting your phone to ask for the security code after unlocking. You should go to "phone settings" and then "security settings" and then "handset lock" and then toggle on "Immediately". The phone will ask for your security code and then lock. If you unlock it, it will then aske for your security code. This is not permanent though. The security code request will only be activated if you do the procedure above.
