LG GT540 Optimus review: Get smart, get started

LG GT540 Optimus review: Get smart, get started - read the full textWe canít be sure but it does look like LG are still feeling the Android water before taking the plunge. Or they might just be too careful not to cast doubt on long standing commitments. You know, the soon-to-be Windows Phone 7. In any case though, their first Android attempts have enough in them to get us excited...

Although, I'm rather doubtful that this phone will be making use of AT T's 3G service. Chances are it will be a CDMA phone. Either Verizon, or Sprint. Straight talk very recently partnered with Sprint, so my money's on them.

Its a good and reasonably priced phone from Lg, but has its own problems of the screen going blank or freezing at the lg logo when restarting. I've had it for only a month or so but have had to change the screen already, and also the battery....not very good....apart from that its okay.

Read the reviews and want to get this phone. The lady at the store suggested on NOT upgrading the OS to the 2.1 from 1.6 due to possible system problems. Has anyone had those problems from the OS upgrade?

Officially it can be upgraded to 2.1 only but inj 2.2 u can save ur apps to SD CARD to .. so better to have 2.2 .. but It is not yet launched officially so ppl ask LG to get 2.2 for LG GT540 ..

Now I must buy this phone because the price is ridiculous,
only 120 euros (£100), think it's the lowest cost
