Truly a nightmare! Pitiful performance combined with a battery that will last 12 hours **if I never ever touch it after disconnecting from the charger.** If I use it for 10-15 minutes I can expect 5 to 10% of the battery to drain in that period of time. God help you if you (try to) open a browser...
Terrible screen quality that's completely illegible when there's any sort of bright lighting. Want to know what the camera is like? Take a disposable film camera and blow your nose on the lens. Perfect simulation.
You should be able to just call the company (T-Mobile) and get an unlock code. People did it all the time when I worked for AT&T....

gfk, 03 May 2011If can't play you tube videos then y they are giving Youtube Application??? :-) Read the feat... moreIt has a YouTube app because that's the only way you can play them, as opposed to doing it through the web browser which it will not do. IIRC it plays only those YouTube videos for which HTML5 playback was specified when they were posted. That said, within the device's constraints there are a ton of videos out there you can play through the app. But you don't want to try hour long documentaries or TV episodes.
I posted here as "Anonymous" about a year ago, and now I've had more experience with the phone. It boils down to this--if you get this phone, you need to root it so you can eliminate the bloatware. Rooting also allows you to move more apps to the SD card--which brings me to my second point--you'll probably need to upgrade the SD card. The SD card mine came with was only 2GB and that is just not enough.
basically, that it is CDMA, may mean you can use it on PagePlus (verizon) :-P
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2012Only 2GB internal memory and lots of apps that can't be moved to the SD card. UGH!!!What! 2GB? i only got ~100Mb!(after os stuff) i got ripped off...
It has only 165MB of internal storage. Mine (all I think) also come with a 2GB SD card, which I have upgraded. The small amount of internal memory does make you app juggle a lot, but it is a good starter smartphone, especially now that they have been upgraded to froyo. I just wish cyanogen mod had an official port, then I might even consider rooting it.

I got an LG Optimus S smartphone for a birthday present and I've had the phone for almost 3 months and its a really cool phone.
