I got this phone yesterday and thus far feeling is gr8. I installed Swype beta and keyboard is excellent...I like it:-) However, need inputs from the experts on some points below:
a) I didnt like the threaded sms view. How do we disable threaded sms view and fall back to conventional sms view?
b) I am not able to manage my sms's!! How do we make
different folders to store sms's?
c) The screen seems to be super sensitive!! Scrolling of screen opens some unwanted things. Is there are way to have a setting which will open applications only when we tap the icon twice (double click)?
d) I think it is by design but wanted to confirm if home screen can be seen in landscape mode? Display
does not auto rotate if I am on home screen or I am on applications menu screen.
Please share your opnions.
I have dificulties to sign in the google account from P500.
Always say can't connect to the google server. I'm using wifi. Anyone can help?
anyone know if it is possible to download the apps to the SD directly from PC?
any one have used any back cover or front cover to reduce the dust and scratching?

I purchased this mobile in Rs. 11700 at Ahmedabad, Gujarat. It has beautiful touch screen sensitivity i have ever seen. speaker sound quality is also good. i guess in such low prize i got all specification with Android 2.2 OS which is also compatible with 2.3. I will write my further experience with this mobile after a month.
navin, 27 Dec 2010Hi all...
Request to address these points...

P500 is wonderful handsets with lots of features and applications. Andriod is 2.2 which is the latest one in India. Excellent processor response. Great screen resolution.
I liked it very much. Also recommend my friends to try it once.
Got one for 12.1k in Surat,Guj..Just one thing to say ---> Highly Recommended
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2010just wondering if this phone can set a mp3 as an incoming tone.and how? can anyone guide me..t... moreTo set custom ringtone, go to music player and long press any song or tone you will get option there to set as phone ringtone.

win, 26 Dec 2010GUYS i discovered something regarding about the "unresponsiveness" of the screen whe... moreThats nice WIN...
I too have found this lag mainly on Applications main screen...
Also i feel Horizontal scrolling of Apps (like in Samsung G3) is a better idea than vertical scrolling as here sometimes last column (towards right) of Apps screen becomes bit troublesome...scroller comes into effect...though not a major issue...
Request to address these points...
1.Has anyone tried what WIN suggested "download an alternate app launcher in the market (such as ADW or launcher pro). After that, viola! the main menu is responsive as what O1 really supposed to be."
2.In LG india version there is a app called "Bollywoodji"...can someone pls tell me how to uninstall it...its very bugging as am not at all a bollywood fan or follower..
I tried it through -> setting -> applications -> manage applications -> menubar item Running / All, but here Uninstall option is disabled (greyed out). here "force stop" works but when App is selected from Application screen or when phone is switched on the Force stop gets deactivated and again this app fetches stupid bollywood news...
I also tried to unintsall this application from Application screen -> menu butoon -> uninstall but gives message in pop up sayin "Selected item cannot be un installed"...
so pls help me to fix this Boolywoodji app
3.from home screen when i press menu button (extreme left) and select notifications from white popup i get a notification screen...here on top there are 5 icons..can some one pls tell me what is the (left to right)significance of third (center) one and fourth one....
could ascertain others...first is wifi, second is bluetooth and fifth is silent or ringtone
4. Also what is diff between exclusive "Gmail" app and "Email" app...as later has provision for all other email account too, including gmail...
so to use this do i need to configure is again as account configured through "Gmail" app is not listed or visible in "Email" -> Google Mail list...
or its better to use decidated and exclusive Gmail or Yahoo mail apps?
Neo input would be quite helpful...
