Very pretty phone, thin and slick but when it comes to usability it just sucks. Why in the world dont all the text field use the landscape view with the qwerty screen keyboard???I have to tap 4-5 times to get one letter! so whats the use of having that large beautiful touch screen if you have to tap everything out like a normal keypad!? plus this thing doesnt switch to 3g UTMS automaticley you have to add profiles to each online app! whats up with that? and last but not least you have to tap like 10 times on the screen to get what you want pressed. the darn buttons are too small for any one with e regular sized finger to get right with one tap. Come on LG give us a break is this your first touch phone??? I was using a Nokia 5800.. plan on going back to it after this one.
This phone is worthy for everything, this was my first mobile from LG i always like nokia and samsung but this time LG bl40 is a must mobile who can appored it not as a second phone,I like all the features including the FM Transmitter which is available in this high price gear.
Thanks to LG
amin, 04 Jul 2010I have problem using its wlan. every time it asked me about IP address and after that doesn't ... morei dont think it require ip adress(based on my own), but if it really requires you then do this, first if you've scan and already got a wifi network, click the network name and voila! the pop-up menu will come out down and click edit. lastly another pop-up came out and there! input all necessary requirement, ip, dns server, def gateway, more. and after inputing click save in menu button at the top... i'de like to add a comment from my previous comment that this phone is really freeze sometimes and need to reboot to bring back to life
been, using it for about a 6mos and its still good as its look still brand new, but still the speed is low and the other function is still very good, wery good at its veery widescreen and cam, but comment about cam flash is bad and like no use because it flash first and end flashing before it capture subject.wifi is good even though it is just wifi b/g and it's all depend on your wifi network. overall notice; the cam flash and speed w/out OS is worst.tnx!

illusion, 16 Jun 2010can anyone help me please ? what do you think about LG BL40 ?Its not very good the battery life is rubbish and its got alot of faults wouldnt recommend it.
Had this phone for about 6 months now thought it was brilliant looks good and has good technology on it soon changed my mind about it though. The touch screen is horrible to use and makes typing messages very difficult you can press one letter on the screen and it forgets youve pressed it and puts a completely different letter in. The switch screen is way to sensitive you only have to twitch a finger and it flips round. The typing itself is very slow and the phone finds it very difficult to keep up when your typing a message. Also i started having technical difficulties with it not long after i first had it. The phone freezes up to the point that you have to take the battery out to get it to work, the screen itself splits and goes nuts and even when putting it on a flat surface the screens keep moving round on its own and it does nothing but turn itself off. If you want a good hassle free phone dont go for this one its very disappointing and has put me off touch screen phones.
I'd probably still get this if I could, regardless of the bad points of this phone. all because SNSD endorsed it LOL.. (fanboy here)
