This is an awful phone. The touchscreen freezes. And breaks. Sometimes it turns itself off. Occasionally the touchscreen does niching and you have to let it go off naturally before attempting to use it again. Most of all, it attempts to be similar to an iPhone whilst having no decent apps, little in the way of interesting media and thus if I were asked to take once again vs the nokia brick that I had in 1999 I would choose the nokia. It worked, the lg arena does not.
Well, I'm having quite a laugh at all those who say this is an iPhone copy because it's not, it's got a better resolution, better camera which is fantastic for videos and plenty of internal memory, and let's not forget what the iPhone will never ever have : Micro SD slot extendable to 32GB, count that (32gb + 8gb) : ooh 40GB, now let's see the iPhone do that without costing 2000$!
I mean common, I'd like to say the S-Class interface is rather crappy but nothing like the iPhone, that's why people are working on getting Android on that phone (http://androidarena.pytalhost....?page=Index) for those which want to help or see it, but that's besides the point, which is that it's not an iPhone, nor an Omnia, so stop with your bullshit iPhone lovers who just won't admit you bought an Apple product with all its rotten promises and all its costy arrogance.
why lg km900 arena i cant open the music?,"please wait" but so long then it hang-up.please help.thank you
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2009weather widget is present in this phone....Looks nice but it is not the easiest phone to use. The touch screen is not as responsive as I would like and the virtual keyboard is horrible to work on. Also internet speed is really slow. Bluetooth function is only mediocre and often does not pick up all devices around. Owning this phone for over 5 months, honestly I can only give it a maximum 6.5 out of 10 grading. It fits my purpose for now but I will probably look for another phone soon.

Anonymous, 04 May 2009I bought this phone. Need a weather icon.weather widget is present in this phone....
I received a chance to try this phone out today while shopping with my girlfriend. It does have multi-touch and it has two cameras (front for video calls and back for picture/video taking/recording). The interface is wicked fast compared to my present iPhone. It supports up to 32G (micro SD) of memory (while cards now only go up to 8 or 16?) and has 8G of internal memory. Has a decent LED flash for the main camera. Blue-Tooth, Wi-fi, WEDGE, and GPRS. Also GPS, compatible with Google Maps. Radio, TV-out, USB 2.0. Feels a lot like an iPhone, but faster with more toys built-in. Cheaper than the iPhone 3G. I'm going to buy one next week (the LG).
Enchanted, 27 Feb 2009For those you might not know, Apple is the copy cat but not LG. Search Google or check this: h... moreOk its not cuz someone shows a phone in 2007 thats squarish and the full top side is a touchscreen that iphone copied the design.
seems like a great little unit. a compact phone that has it all you could say. think the UI is revolutionary in design and having the advantage over other touch phones being simple and quick to use. not to mention the massive storage capabilities for multimedia incl movies etc. check utube for demos. but one question, can the samsung omnia HD match the ease of use the arena already has?

LG showed off the Prada phone in Feb 2007, one year early than Iphone. So please do some search before making judgement. Somebody also say both are copy of kitty phone. Any way, that touch screen is not Apple's innovation!
Grrr, 23 Feb 2009OK yo stop flippin on how it looks like an IPHONE its going to, you dont have a much option on... moreo and i hope some other company DOES step up to the MP3 curb cause im sick of their programs for there MP3 players, Creatives are the best IMO but there mp3 players struggle in size and memory, 180g mp3 won't be found anywhere but through apple... SOMEONE ELSE PLEASE MAKE ONE ill buy it
OK yo stop flippin on how it looks like an IPHONE its going to, you dont have a much option on something thats going to be in your pocket. if its touch, wow it has to have a screen on the WHOLE front. Look at the Voyager, take away the keyboard half and the speakers and WOW looks like an IPHONE! that design is basic for touchscreens anymore. I've ALWAYS owned an LG phone and i have never seen a problem with their NEW phones, yes i've had probs with phones that were refurbished from gay cellular insurance companies, but i have heard of SOOO many problems with the IPHONE people who if they could would switch phones because there sick of going through their probs. honestly, get over it IPOD lovers, the IPHONE no matter how good other phones get will stay its price just like all apple products. I think apple is OVER PRICED and is ridiculous on how its appliances are so UN-Universal. I have an ipod screen adaptor for my car, i now have to go buy a new one cause my new ipod rejects it. WTF APPLE its reason like this that APPLE will hit its dead end because of ZUNE CREATIVE and LG...
Anonymous, mms is useless, thats why iphone hasn't it. if u need to send an image, use e-mail, like everyone does.
hope this lg phone will be a well-built phone with good materials. expensive phones should last 10 years at least. hopefully 20. if course ppl wont use them that long but they should be built to last.
