Nevin Joseph, 08 Jan 2010Sorry mate for the dealy in reply.... could'nt find enough time to answer all your queries.
... morePhiliphs headsets how much do de cost? and do they have volume controls or music control keys? Is the effect similar to the sony headphones? Which wud u suggest? price is not an issue. There are in ear headphones even in LG, they cost 374INR.. din like the quality though. There are no compatible themes available for any LG fone on the net thats what i got to know. The Camera is NOT 2MP, I am telling this on record.
Today i have asked the service center guy to tell the company regarding the mp3 player and games problem. He said he will inform the manufacturers.
How shal i know what screen resolution shall i use for what game? and how is the screen resolution adjusted?
Would u give me the most essential list of jar applications that will be handy on the GM 200?
There are no music control keys on ny LG headsets and i doubt if headsets with music control keys work on the GM200!
Last query.. wheneva i download an application or a game and then try to install it gets failed.
physiovinayak, 08 Jan 2010Ya exactly whats this BRIO about? Thats what i exactly wanted to know saw this thing yesterday... moreyeah that seems like a great idea. maybe we should let all our voices be heard.
I don't think that GM200 has a VGA camera. It is strongly based on my observations that even if it is a VGA camera with pics interpolated to 2mp resolution, the amount of detailing will be significantly lower. Which is not the case with my GM200. I've compared it with even top class 2mp phones like nokia 6233 and fould out that the colour reproduction and detailing is so much better that 6233.
You might have the camera set to VGA resolution. Just check it and don't trust you mobile display. View it on a bigger computer display.
cuteguy, 08 Jan 2010Will anyone ans my question. what do u mean by firmware update? I think it is... moreYes it wipes all data and settings on you phone memory. so make sure you backup all your data before you do the update.
cuteguy, 08 Jan 2010hi natt wil u say wat do u mean by firmware update?Firmware it the phones operating system which handles all the operations of the phone. It is kind of like Windows XP for a PC. Updating firmwaare removes software errors and bugs and keeps your phone upto date.
natt, 08 Jan 2010hi nevin, whats this brio all about, since when did this get added to gm200 name tag??I've been wonderin the same thing. I've noticed it yesterday. I think they are trying to make it a bit intimate by giving names though i'd prefer GM200.

Insatll it and run the application. in that under customer support, select application, manual and usb driver download. click that and enter the phone imei number. the application will automatically recognise your phone and give you the list of available downloads. Under that select PC sync software which is a zip file of 178mb size. download it, extract and then run the setup from there. It should resolve your problems.

Glad you could find a USB earphone. It's the one thing I was unable to try out. And there is good news too.. Philips has a budget earphone (don't kno the model no or exact price). It has 3.5mm pin and supports 2 independent earphones at a time. So in that case use of 3 earephones is quite possible.
2) This phone doesn't support 3d graphics at this particular time so it will be difficult to run games with a lot of graphics. Make sure you get the right screen size. No registeration necessary though you can do that as membership is free. Well with my current firmware version, the only way to run apps and music at the same time is by this method.
3) No you don't necessarily have to do that. Though it doesn't show the charging status, it does charge from the USB everytime you connect it. But the thing to be noticed is that Laps tend to have alower USB voltage so this could influence the charging time.
4) For reading E-Books, the phone natively supports text files. you just have to convert it into a simple notepad file and just copy it into any folder. there are applications that can also convert documents intoa jar file which can be installed.
5) The vibration is followed by a message reminder icon on the top of the display. It is quite adequate for me as a reminder.
6) No... dude as part of new laws regarding privacy, all phones come with a shutter sound that cannot be muted. It is applicable to all newer models.
7)Just check out zedge and mobile9. All classic 2djava games should work with ease. try splinter cell, asphalt gt2d, GTA vice city, prince of persia, etc. Find working games is always a trial and error affair.
8)yes you can get it from your nearest sony showroom or sales center. costs about 790rs now. If you are a lover of haed thumping bass.. then you'll like it.
9)Hope your update went well and fell free to post your reviews regarding the update.

regarding the firmware update, the only thing thats resolved is the mp3 does not skip after the call and even while accessing the applications and games.
I asked the service center guy to get the firmware updated so that the mp3 player and the games can be simultaneously used. He assured that he will mail to the company.
I have given him in written a list of improvements the GM200 drastically needs. I also showed him the user reviews on the gsmarena.
Will u plz reply to my 9 point questionaire natt?

Hi Natt and Nevin, i have a thought. How bout we draft a real effective mail to the LG ppl regarding our greviences with firmware and stuffs like that for the GM 200?
By they way i got a shocking revelation today the cam of the GM200 is not megapixels but VGA :(. Thats really disheartening.
cuteguy, 08 Jan 2010Will anyone ans my question.

I think it is... morehi cuteguy,
Please go through the contents below, yep its the software, which is semi permanent in any system.
firmware is a software program or set of instructions programmed on a hardware device. It provides the necessary instructions for how the device communicates with the other computer hardware. But how can software be programmed onto hardware? Good question. Firmware is typically stored in the flash ROM of a hardware device. While ROM is "read-only memory," flash ROM can be erased and rewritten because it is actually a type of flash memory.
Firmware can be thought of as "semi-permanent" since it remains the same unless it is updated by a firmware updater. firmware updates available that allow the drives to read faster media. Sometimes manufacturers release firmware updates that simply make their devices work more efficiently.
Will anyone ans my question.
what do u mean by firmware update?
I think it is like re-install software. if s means will we lost our data when it is updated?

LAtest firmware update released. Go get it done. I have just given mine.. will post the results in some hours.
Somebody plz reply to my earlier nine point post. I talked to the service center guys. They said that if more and more customers assert on the firmware update with their greveinces the company will seriously look into the matter as these guys give customer feedback to the company. So i am doing my part, i am handing over my compliant on a peice of paper. All u guyz also do the same wen u drop into the service center.
Nevin Joseph, 06 Jan 2010Yes you can do that using the PC sync software provided with the phone.i've tried but it is only showing when phone is connected but i can't get it when phone is dis connected. I've successfully back up my images and ringtones in MM_download folder. Where the text sms will store?
