Being 'No Contract' still doesn't mean it's 'Unlocked', right? So, no way to use here in Brazil?
Or is there an unofficial way to unlock it for other carriers? Or the lock is only for US carriers?

I am following the cyanogenmod development on this forum. However, I am a novice and there's no way I'm going to attempt this stuff they're talking about there :P

> In reply to RicAndroid @ 2013-05-01 00:06 from j8wI - click to readthe bootloader has been successfully unlocked, but it is difficult to do from what I understand because the touchscreen goes bananas during the process. I have read messages about people putting cyanogenmod on there by effectively turning the phone into a P760 beforehand. I think I remember there were issues with the GPS and the screen not rotating properly when you flip the phone on its side. the phone has been out for awhile, but I'm hopeful that it will get real support for custom mods soon - it seems to be gaining in popularity as a pre-paid phone. I search about once a week, watching for a stable custom rom to be made available by someone. I'll say this much, the possibility of a custom rom being made available looks much better now than it did a couple of months ago.

T-Mobile is selling this at 199.99 no contract. Not bad. Anyone know if the bootloader's been unlocked and running on custom roms yet?

Also, download a battery saver (Like Go Power Master) and set it to turn off data an wi-fi when screen off. I did all of this and now get almost two days of battery life.

The LG Optimus L9-P76910G Is a good phone. My dad got it for me. The store sale it to him. I was looking more for a Nexus 4, a Droid or else.

It was a replacement from my great awesome Motorola Defy MB5xx... great phone running Android 4.2 with a costume rom. Still alive since 2009!!!

This phone is fairly good.

Pros:
1-It never run slow.

2-Battery is more than average battery. I notice is better to use original charger.Somehow it just charge faster, fully and better.

3-Slim light weight deign

4- Smart

5-Nice Gorilla Glass feel. The glass screens feels goon on touch, **SPECIALLY*** scrolling. *It does gets scratch easily tho.

6-Glass screen cleans very easy. :)

7-Nice graphic quality.


Cons:
1-Really LowQ camera at 5MP. Forget about taking a decent pic or video with both front and rear camera. Images are just grainy not matter lighting conditions. Being a Video expert, i am 100% sure that the image sensor is very low end. To shoot 1080p video you need at least 8MP. I noticed how the camera actually crops and zooms the image when switching from 720p to 1080p, to mimic 1080p resolution. like come on!!! it is very noticeable LG. Useless videos. Very pixelated.

2-Quick Memo, is noting else than a screenshot. It is not that useful if you have big fingertips i think.

3-Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. A Upgrade to JB will make this phone even smoother.

4-This phone is not that bright in sunny day. I have to put my hand ontop to block the Sun.

5-Screen scratches very easily. Even tho it has Gorilla Glass 2.

6-One momo speaker

7-No NOTIFICATION LIGHT. You have to constantly be looking at your phone to see any notification.

8-Annoying Keyboard icon on top if you modify or change any settings on your keyboard or how it should behave.

9-You cant store app to external SD card... So forget about installing large files on your phone.

You must have a faulty battery/unit. I average 4 hours of on-screen time. Screen brightness no lower than 50%. I am not conservative with this phone. Wifi, Bluetooth, gps stay on sometimes throughout the day.
