Dont know if this is entirely trustworthy, but my perdiction is that next year will be the year for touchscreen phones. Like late 2006, when the samsung D600 and D900 became the catalyst for the slide phone revolution, the iPhone and the samsung f700/lg viewty will herald a year of touch screens.
Dont believe my prophecy? Compare the number of slid phones sold by SE this year compared to the years before.
So if your thinking of buying this phone, might be a good idea to wait a few months to check what is on the way
I have just got the Veiwty and I am on O2. O2 have put an 'O2 Active' shortcut on the home screen, does anybody know if this can be removed because it spoils any of my pics that I would like on the home screen. Cheers
The phone is nice but I can not get my PC to link to the phone, possibly a driver problem? can anyone please advise me, I would be very greatful for any help. Cheers.
You must be talkin about the LG KS20 which is going to be released soon, probably in Jan 2008. That phone has WiFi but no GPS. It is not the same phone as the Viewty though.

Yeah i was gonna order it online just now and I saw your post about it having a new version in 2008 but I cant seem to find any information on this in google
No problem, glad that my comments helped your decision whether you were to buy or not buy the phone ;) hope you enjoy the phone just as much as me after you purchase it =)
where did you get the information about a Wifi/better battery version of the Viewty coming out in 2008?
anyone know what that little circle below the flash is. Only had it in the flesh once and the sale assitant didnt know what it was
Thanks to the post with regards to saving battery power il try that !
and LOL to the comment about the battery smelling what are they doing with it ! (:
Thank you for the your comment

Correction on my earlier post.The new 2008 viewty comes with WIFI not GPS
DUN BUY TIS PHONE NOW! Wait till january 2008. It will come out with GPS and new battery. I just recently bought tis phone and the news was too late for me.Trust me..tis phone is a test phone,wait till january 08 for the full version.
ppl made comments about the battery smelling ?WHAT WERE YOU DOING WITH IT lol
if your phone was not bought in the uk you cannot get it repaired under warrenty by lg . as all lg customers must have a uk tax registered recipt or invoice before the company will take up a repaire under warrenty. so keep those recipts !
reply to Emma have you cheaked your settings are on gprs insted of the other one ( cant remember what it is) as it does make a huge huge diffrence to battery life .huge diffrence !
this phone will not work with vista . if you work n the comp bussiness you may be cleaver enough to get aroud it but 99.9% off customers of this phone will not ba able to use vista
