using for 15 months. was 1st person to purchase in my city.studied extensively all texts/ vids before purchasing. gsm arena is somewhat understating. it supports 8 gb sd card. 320_240 res mp4_3gpp vids playback. all 3 sims gprs enabled. apps like newshunt, nimbuzz excellent. now lg provides s'ware update through pc -net connection_connectivity cable about 150/- or so needed. that is essential to install many more apps and .jar games.
this superb handset exceeds my expectations far beyond imagination. now available in 3 colours at about 2400/- or so.
battery of 1500 mah is awasome. 3 days continued usage. gaming, facebk, nimbuzz, talktime all to the fullest extent.
fill it, shut it and forget it type battery.
i am a genuine customer and no lg canvasser. i have a nokia n95 8gb. and 5 other handsets. but from now on i shall concentrate on lg only.
do not listen to heresay/ gossip.
if you are for a budget feature phone without prejudice for touchscreen, go for lg a290.
my mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
lg has assured me of its quality. it has kept its commitment. that is the essence of quality assurance systems_iso 9000.
thank you LG.

Finally as I am writing this comment, the handset is rejecting any simcard, the new problem is lasting to a week now. Please what is the solution? I am very interested in LG product. Please assist me. I am living in Kano Nigeria.

Dear Friends please tell me whether all the three sims support internet. Thanks in advance.
I purchased this mobile 2 months before. This is one and only best 3 sim mobile. No problem of hanging or restarting till date. Battery back up is superb for 4 days with normal usage. Only drawback is Hard keypad and Chinese software used in this mobile. Otherwise quite superb mobile and i can recommend to all.

Anonymous, 30 Jul 2013While making a call i am not able to select the sim as i wish. THe call will be automatically ... moreThere is no problem selecting which sim to use for calls or texts, I have a tri sim LG-A290 and I have no issues what so ever. To select either sim to make a call you move the side switch on the left of the handset until you select the one you want to use, i.e. Sim 1, 2 or 3. Once highlighted on the top LHS of your screen, that will be the sim that will be used to make the call. I have no issues using ANY of my 3 numbers. If you have any more problems just reply and I will be happy to help you.
