bought this phone a week ago.
substandard capacitive touchscreen compared to my samsung i8910HD.
speed texting via alphanumeric keypad is worse, full qwerty texting in ok. but 90% of the time we text via one hand alphanumeric keypad.
i will go for my samsung i8910hd anytime.
selling it for 24,000 pesos. with warranty.

Hey guys and gals,
LG BL40 owners:
Is there a setting to change language to Korean?
and can the phone receive and send Korean text?
how's video recording and its corresponding audio quality?
Appreciate your time!
Alex, 20 Jan 2010Anyone can help on email retrieval. It's so so so slow.No upgrade option for this phone, it's slow as the way it is... another junk phone.
triztan, 12 Jan 2010I just bought the phone and its super great!

Hi all, I'm back again! :)
Regarding the battery, I noticed that it can last long (for me at least 2 days) - its just a matter of removing all vibration settings. Not just lessen the vibration, remove it. The vibration eats a lot of the battery. You don't need vibration if you are alerted by sound to be notified or for the responses.
Remove all vibration in:
- Sound Alert Setting
- Ringtone Setting
- Video Ringtone Setting
- Message Tone Setting
- Touch Setting
- Alarm Setting
- Games Setting
- Apps Setting
That's it! You can maximize your LG Chocolate to its full potential. No worries on battery life, you can charge it not that frequent.
i have this phone since 3 months and its cool one ..guyz if u need to use for long time battery just decrease the vibration level from +6 to -2 and just reduce some more tweaks u will get the result.
This phone is just bravo! Have used it for a week now. The length of the phone actually is pretty unique but as u hold it for long, u wil find that the phone length actually prevents you from dropping it. You will noe why when you hold it for long! The touch sensitivity is pretty good too (Even though Iphone still wins). But I will prefer BL40 to Iphone as Iphone is too common now!!!!! and I dun use Itunes AT ALL!!!

tomas, 19 Jan 2010nice phone, was about to buy, looked at the size, 128mm long? that is a "surf board long&... moresize is not Real problem in this phone. because you would have to adapt. actually problem is the battery. despite all the advantages possessed features BL40, you may need to provide a backup battery to far travel.
I just bought this phone for $ 689 SGD in singapore.
and I took him to Indonesia. because of high taxes in Indonesia the price soared to $ 893 SGD.
overall, this is nice phone.
decision to replace Aino with BL40 is very precise. I liked all the features of Aino. but I have trouble with the keypad is relatively small and uncomfortable. my thumb feels tired.
nice phone, was about to buy, looked at the size, 128mm long? that is a "surf board long" how would I carry it? and where? Anyone owns it and is OK with the size of it?
Owned the phone for 3 weeks now. Email retrieval is so painfully slow. But overall a good phone.
so lovely a phone, i use it and it servers more than i bought it for!!
Take my advice buy toshiba tg01 its much better thatn this phone. You will be better off.
