And about the firmware, i've got a bunch of codes for LG but nothing seems to work on this phone. maybe it's got a new line up of codes.
my last firmware update was on 9th nov.

I just hated the way this forum was flooded by negative comments about this phone before I came here. There was even a comment saying that only beggars would buy this phone. Whoever said that must be regretting now. For this price tag, I still think this is a good music phone with all the essentials and nothing fancy. it is the perfect phone for an average joe like me and the practicality of this phone surpasses anything in this price range.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2009So we cant access java app like opera mini while plyng mp3 plyer?oh that make me sadYep... shouldn't have taken away that feature. It was a very useful feature. who knows, maybe we can expect it to come back in the next update.
you see i'm an optimist and even when everyone wrote trash about this phone, i was quite sure that this phone has got the muscle. All it needed was a good update. So far so good for me. As this phone is a relatively new lineup, development is still going on and we can expect a lot of things with each update. This update has definitely brought this phone closer to 5130 in terms of audio quality. the hardware part is quite ok as it has been jointly developed by LG and Dolby under the specs prescribed by the world leader in acoustic engineering. If only I could find a way to contact the developers and tell them what all features I want. That would have been great.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2009you mean you will have to pay for updates even if you update it urself?No way... under warranty, all updates are free and you can demand them at you will. After warrenty, since firmware updates are chargeable, it does'n matter at all if you do it in a service center or by yourself.
Stranger, 11 Nov 2009i got one mp4 movie of 400 mb .. But its not working ..... u have any ideas about that.I think it just depends on the settings you use to convert the video. The recommended settings is 176x144 or 320x240 resolution @ 25 fps (gives smoother playback) encoded with mpeg4 codec or xvid codec. data rate 200-400 but 300kbps gives optimal quality with smaller file sizes and smooth playback. Audio can have 64, 80 or 96kbps data rate (recommended is 80kbps @ 44100hz sample rate). With these settings, you get quality videos with great audio quality and can be played back without any trouble. For movies, it is better to split the file into 10 or 20 minute sections so that it is easy to resume playback without having to FF the whole thing from the beginning.
I lost(Stolen) my Motorola L7 Slim ... last month ..........
So i think its a blessing that GM 200's - worst "LOOK and FEEL" rather than a curse.
