Anonymous, 16 Dec 2011I had one of these to date,but lost it and i miss it.However it had problems like auto-restart... moreMy GT505 never had any of these problems, I bought my phone unlocked.
Until today, never gave me problems and passed two years and one month that I bought it.
I'm happy with the purchase I made two years ago, the GT505 that I have on hands, has been very reliable, therefore, I think that was a good purchase.
I had one of these to date,but lost it and i miss it.However it had problems like auto-restart(randomly),Wifi turn on/off issues and quite some lag...dunno if it was mine who had these issues or others as well....
Administrators and Moderators, I would like to correct and add some specs about the phone LG GT505, they are:
1 - Total amount of internal memory of LG GT505 is 154MB and not 60MB.
2 - In addition to the options already mentioned in the GsmArena specifications, the primary camera of LG GT505 also has the following options: Manual Focus, Macro Mode, Timer, Image Stabilization, Zoom.
3 - Primary Video Camera, records 320x240(QVGA) video size at 24frame/sec, also have the option Zoom, up to x2.0
4 - In Video Camera mode, there is the option to keep the LED flash always on, which means that can also be used as a Torch.
5 - The FM Radio of LG GT505, also includes the option RDS.
6 - In video call mode, there is the option to record video calling.
7 - The features of LG GT505 internal GPS also includes QuickGPS, and position location via Google Maps app with function "My Location".
8 - In messages (sms), LG GT505 have the option "Threaded View".
9 - Has a built-in Feed Reader.
10 - Has Flight Mode.
11 - In call features, has the option to automatically reject calls from anonymous numbers and numbers not registered in the phonebook.
12 - Has the option to sending a predefined text message to the caller, when we can`t or don`t want to answer a call.
13 - Has a built-in Image Editor.
14 - Supports MultiTasking
Let me explain how to solve the problem of the phone memory full on GT505.
A few days ago, I came across the first time with this problem of the phone memory full, I deleted the call history, messages, some notes, browsing history of the browser, but the percentage remained with the same internal memory, so I had to find another solution.
I tested on my GT505 and the percentage of internal memory which before was almost full, dropped considerably, so do not need to reset or flash the phone.
what I did was this:
- I entered in menu "Entertainment - My Files" and I checked that some apps and games did not have the memory card icon over the icon of the app or game, so what I did was click on the apps and games options, and choose "move", then marked with a tick all apps and games that did not have the memory card icon over the icon of the app or game, and moved them all to the external memory.
Only not moved to external memory, apps and games that came pre-installed, eg Google Maps, Wisepilot, Sudoku Cafe, Thomsons and Touch, in addition, also uninstalled a few more games and apps that did not make much use and so got more internal memory, to be more concrete, I recovered 22268 kilobytes(KB), which means 21.74 megabytes(MB).
I verified this information through the summary state bar and also through the menu "management of common memory of the phone".
The trick is move the apps and games for the external memory and also eliminate some games and apps that are installed.
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2011how do you turn off the shutter sound for the camera? It's reaallyy annoying. :/Tutorial to remove the sounds of photo-camera, video-camera, low battery and others on LG GT505
Let's start by downloading the software Bluesoleil
This software tends to give problems to install and most users can not get it to install without making some changes in Windows before.
1º In Windows go to Start - Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Signature of Controlling - and here you select "Prompt"
2º Then install the Bluesoleil, when appear the windows asking if you still want to continue with the installation, always choose "Yes"
3º If for any reason during the installation of BlueSoleil appears the warning "Do not passed the Windows Logo testing and can not proceed with the installation" you have to rename the CatRoot2 folder which is in C: / Windows / System32 to CatRoot2a and then return to try to install BlueSoleil.
4º If perhaps they have even rename and can not do that because a window appears saying that the files are being used you have to end/terminate the processes that are in that folder and to do that I used Unlocker tool.
Is a very useful and easy application to use, after installation is accessible by clicking the right mouse button on any file or folder and in this case will serve to terminate the process and also to rename this folder, this application does both.
5º When BlueSoleil is already installed begin by removing the memory card from the GT505 and then have to pair via bluetooth the GT505 with the BlueSoleil software, begin by selecting the mode visible on the phone in the options of bluetooth and in BlueSoleil go to the tab "My bluetooth" and click on "Bluetooth Device Discovery" for the software to search for devices, when to find your GT505 wait that the search for devices ending, and click right mouse button on top of it (GT505) and choose "Pair" or "Connect" something like that and then just put a code will be your choice to pair both on your PC / Laptop as the GT505.
6º After that will go back to Tab "My bluetooth" and now choose "bluetooth service discovery" and supported services will pop up in more prominent relief, when that happens you have to click with the right mouse button on the "File transfer service bluetooth" is the 5th symbol from the left and do connect, accept on the phone and when they do this will appear a window of BlueSoleil and on top in the address bar of this window write the following " \ .. \" without the quotes, the first bar will already be there so you just have to add that "..\ " without the quotes of course and click on Enter on your keyboard, will appear all the hidden folders from GT505.
7º Standing in front of our eyes all these folders will double-click the folder "Midis" and then double-click in the folder "EffectSnd", and it this folder that you will eliminate the sounds you want, I just eliminated the sounds (01 Shutter 1.wav, 03 Camcoder Start.wav, 03 Camcoder Stop.wav).
If you remove the same I eliminated you can take photos without making the noise of the camera to selecting the sound of a "shutter 1" in the camera options, I cut off the sound 1, but you can delete the 2 or 3 if you like, the sound of Start, Stop and Pause the video camera also were deleted from the mine.
