I really LOVE this phone. Its a great phone to show off to people and you are not embarrassed to use this phone out in the public. It probably the most unique and best designed phone out in the market today.
The touch screen is very sensitive and easy to use! So don't go listening to other people that the touch screen does not respond well.
There are only 2 reasons why you wold be buying this phone. 1 - because of its physical design. 2 - wide screen capability.
This is a multimedia phone that has some smart phone applications. So please don't compare this with a i-phone or any other type of smart phone, such as the andriod. Because it's simply a media phone with additional features. If you are looking for a phone that is more like a PC, you should try the new LG phone that they have recently released. GW990 has the same wide screen feature as the BL40 but has a intel processor inside, personally I find that the design of GW990 is poor and boring compared to the sleek attractive BL40.
This is honestly a beautiful phone, selfishly I hope that I keep this phone all to myself as a secret. Since EVERYONE now-a-days has a i-phone. The BL40 is a breath of fresh air, compared to all the predicable i-phone wannabies out there, with their business style designs. So buy this phone if you are bold enough stand out from the crowd.
PLUS, guys don't worry about the flash support, because the i-phone doesn't support flash anyway.
I RECOMMEND THAT YOU BUY A SCREEN PROTECTOR! This is crucially important, as I find that the screen is prone to scratches more easily. So invest that 5 dollars that totally covers the entire screen!

Hello to everyone! Is there anyone knows a link or instruction how to remove the lcd of this phone? I just dropped the phone but the whole screen is totally 100% functionable but it has a long line of crack; angled from the earpice until the middle of the phone and is just ugly to look at and need to replace it.Also anybody knows where to go to buy lcd parts for this phone? THANKS! =)
To the person 2 comments bellow mine!
ARE YOU SERIOUS? Video quality is crap??? This phone is HD and the video is amazing!
In addition,the video quality is NOT so good. The battery life is OK. I think the battery in ALL LG Chocolate phone in United States and in Great Britain is not so great. =)
Although this a great looking phone, the software is disappointing. I've only had this phone for a few months, and I've encountered power problems. They told me that it was a common problem in the LG BL40 mobile phone, because the LG software version of it was not good. I had to get it repair and update the software version. I'm sure that I wasn't the only one who'd encountered this problem.

Amazing phone, beautiful and sleekly and sexy phone.extremely user friendly.
what i dun fancy is just the typing of message( no i not referring to the Qwerty keyboard, i referring to the typing of message when the phone is place vertical) and sometimes it does lag a bit, it also doesnt support Japanese font.Otherwise, its prefect. i think Lg phone always very user friendly. =)
Updating of phone is pretty easy too. im updating now but it does took up a lot of space, 238mb in exact. =/
i bought in Singapore and it left with only last 3 pieces, i'm glad to be able to grab it in time.anyway my chocolate bl40 does able to watch Youtube via wifi. not sure if other countries Bl40 managed to.
Anyone knows where to get nice cases or pouch for this sexy phone?
i have 3 questions:
1) Does this phone support Chinese language??
2) Does it provide dictionary?
3) Is this a Alphanumerics (123)in the typing message?
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2010where can we download the 10g firmware ?Update through the LG official Website. U can use the LG PC suite which is either install from the given disc in the LG BL40 package or download from the LG website. then select ur country option and install.
