coremi, 15 Feb 2011I like it, but i have some problems, like the display wont start when i press the power button... moreOne firm push on the power button should awake the phones screen (display) A longer push and hold of the button (3 secs ) to turn it on or off. As for the black display after a phone call is immediately disconnected, it takes a second or 2 to display end call. This maybe because the duration of the call is longer than the timed setting you have your phone set on IE 1, 3 , or 5 mins (sleep mode) and is a power saving feature or you have a problem, but Iam guessing the first one is more likely.
I like it, but i have some problems, like the display wont start when i press the power button everytime, i have to press 3, 4 times until it lights up, same black screen happens when i end an call, so i take the phone from my ear and it is black and i have to press once to shut the display and then again to light up the display. Other than that it works fine. I have never seen anyone posting this problem so i think my LG has a problem and should sent it to warranty, or is it Windows Phone 7 fault and should wait for the update in march ?
Thanx a lot
Oh Yeah, MS gives you a half dozen LAME ringtones,and a half dozen LAME alert tones, but don't worry, there are more LAME ringtones to buy thru their apps system. Want to assign your own ringtones? NO PROBLEM, no problem "cause you can't do it, and MP3s are not even compatible with W7 mobile. That was so 90's, choosing your own ringtone, didn't you want to be a clone anyway? cool then, thanks M$ you are simultaneously crashtackling Android and Ifone with this.(note sarcasm)
Bought the phone as soon as it came to the store and never regreated it :)
Windows 7 is making this phone the Beta vidio tape of the smartphone world. Each company likes to make it's product different in some way to stand out from the competition. W7 has defined itself by: No compatibility to widely used software like ADOBE FLASH PLAYER, NO SKYPE, non compatibility to widely used media software like MP3, XVID etc etc. A user needs to go back to the old PC to get anything like this and translate it using the ZUNE software into something the W7 package can digest, and then it's on the phone, no longer pallatable to other software. Luckily the W7 E 900 has not got any real bluetooth capabiliy to send anything anyhow. The only hope is that M$ are leaving room for improvement so they can cash in later, marketing a serious version of W7.
No wonder the SKYPE people couldn't justify developing software for W7. In a nutshell, before buying any W7 based phone, consider surfing the net without a flash player. An app is there to get you capability for Youtube,(like another layer of search engine between the user and youtube) otherwise online video content is excluded for W7 and the E 900
Does anyone know if its possible to assign mp3 ringtones to contacts and if so how can it be done?
Love the phone, but was hoping to use SKYPE on it thru wi fi. So far, seems unsupported. Any news on Skype for this phone or w7 in general?
24 hours only but great, great, great, both LG and W7P :-). Still waiting on update because of cut/copy/paste and I hope more tuning options.
I love my Optimus 7!I have it for almost 3 months.It fits really nice in your hand and it has really nice build quality! The 3.8" capacative touch screen is really nice with the Gorilla Glass.I found it an excellent all rounder, with most of the problems being with the OS which will hopefully be patched soon.The connections to WiFi and network are also brilliant and really does have a strong connection that has not timed out on me once and it's speed is quality.
Excellent phone. Application loading is fast, starup is fast, shutdown phone is fast. Only flaws I could think of is the Windows Phone 7 software side.
Harish, 06 Jan 2011Hi Kelvin
I have answer for your second question, this phone has a capability of coming back ... moreThanks. I figured no 3rd party software could wake the phone under lock condition. After 3rd servicing, the problem was resolve. LG changed the main board after I keep complaining its likely to be hardware issue. Maybe heat makes certain component(s) malfunction.

I have answer for your second question, this phone has a capability of coming back to life under locked condition only if you keep pressed the camera button..... This is make it easier if you are in rush to take a photo....
stefanie uranuso, 17 Nov 2010i used this phone the past 5 months and must say the high res screen is great to work with 960... moreHow come you could say that?? there is no Android version... there is no 9.7 mpx camera and overall the phone samples where available 2 months before the launching. Be serious when posting. I do work in LG so I know what I am talking about.
Basically, this phone is a serious competition in the smart phone arena. When I just bought the phone the initial weeks experience were fantastic.
Now I need anyone with technical knowledge to help answer a few questions:
01. When you press the BACK button all the way back to the start screen, will 3rd party programs be capable to continue running OR send notification to phone hardware? According to Microsoft, 3rd party program will be in standby once it is sent to background, are they lying in any way?
02. When you press the power button once to lock (turn off) the screen, what are the possible events that may turn on the screen (when the phone is not wired to charger or PC)? From experience, even SMS or email notifications only give audible alert - the display remain turn off.
I have it from 2 days, and I am really impressed. M$ have done a gread job. I had the opportunity to compare LG 7 with Samsung Omnia 7, and yes without doubt I could say that the Super Amoled is much better. LG 7 looks and feels much more massive, and I prefer it to Samsung Omnia 7. The battery performance is also very good - last night it was not fully charged and on the next day after a heavy use there were some life left at the end of the day. I am happy that didn't opt for the power hungry HTC Desire HD. I am totally disappointed from the navigation service of WP7. It is totally not usable in Bulgaria, when you search in Sofia (the capital), all results are totally irrelevant. All navigation apps in the marketplace are ridiculous (even the paid), hope the guys from Redmond have not revealed their cards yet.
