I bought this phone 6 weeks ago. Its been back to the shop 3 times to be fixed, massive software problems...no names come up on screen when contacts saved in phone rang or messaged, would not connect to my pc properly. Also screen stays blank when calls are incoming. Biggest waste of my time ever. Have given up and gone back to trusty old nokia.
it's a piece of junk, it freezes all the time, and I should be close to the wifi router to connect else I must disconnect and connect every 15min, Im not satisfied !!!
Lg has come up with Lg GD900 the latter stands out for its 8 Mega pixels Camera and especially its transparent sliding keyboard which it derives its name for. Crystal enjoys the latest technology in mobile telephony, but not necessarily exploited optimally. The phone's design plays on transparency, with gray shades and finally pure black color which derives it to a very simple product. The finishes are more than correct, with small buttons and mechanisms of aluminum, enhancing the look a bit classy and solid.
The sliding keyboard leaves no signs of disrespect and which is very pleasing to the opening and closing. At the opening, it glows gently revealing the laser-etched keys. The effect corresponds to the same motto: clean and simple! For mroe information visit http://www.techarena.in/review/14655-lg-gd900-crystal-mobile-phone.htm
if i'm not using my phone (so the screen is displaying nothing)when i receieve a call the screen stays blank, when i slide the phone up this doesn't answer the call. I've got the phone set to answer on slide but nothing. Can anyone explain why the screen doesn't light up when i get a call ??

But I just saved all my datas and contacts . . ., installed the last update, and did a factory reset (1809#*900# then factory reset, be careful, it erase all on your phone) and everything become good ;) and more responsive
warning - this cell phone has a design flaw. the profiles will become mixed up (they will not corrospond to the one you set them to and the profile names will be mixed up). i'm on my second lg gd900 with the same problems and i have heard the same from results on google. really disappointed seeing as how i love this cell phone minus this fundamental flaw.
do not get this cell phone!!

raze_boy, 13 Oct 2009me too, my screen goes blank when make a call. very annoying... can anyboby help????I faced this problem in the begining, but the LG service told me to check the call divert and swith it off, i did but still i had the problem, they told me to swith the light sensor off and then it worked without a problem.
I discovered that this was something good for the phone as it saves your battery, when you put the mobile close to your ear the light switch off automaticly and far from your ear the lights returns, try it your self, its actually something good not bad, i felt stupid when i discovered that:)
I just bought Crystal last week, best mobile ever, i love it and will recommend it to all my friends, i compared this model with other Samsung and SE before purchasing, they r not even close, this mobile have everything you need for best quality.

Anonymous, 12 Oct 2009totally agree with you. i have had the Samsung Ultra Touch for 5 months and now i have this ph... morei chose crystal over the ultra touch as it does do everything better than the ultra, as i had the ultra for ages and i'm pretty good with technology. i've flashed my ultra with the latest firmware but it was still to laggy.
Why Crystal is better:
- crystal is at least 3 or 4 times more sensitive (touch).
- crystal looks better.
- full querty keyboard (the way it should be, on a touch phone) i can almost type as fast on my phone as my keyboard.
- crystal has wifi, which i use alot. but really only depends on if you use it or not.
- you can customise everything, Ultra u can't change the 'hold' wallpaper.
Why Ultra Touch is better.
- camera (really good compared to the crystal)
But in the end i only paid a extra $50 which to me is more than worth it. you can really see how much better the crystal is when you have both phones in your hand, as i did.
i've said this before and i say it again, the Camera on the crystal is very dissapointing.
Innov8 vs Crystal, i'll say keep the Innov8 (lil sis has one)unless you really must have the design and looks.
