This a great phone for the price, works a treat on our Vodafone 3g network. I have confirmed with LG here in Australia, that 2.1 will be available in mid Sept. 2010 I have put in a 16gb data card, and it work very well. Just drag & drop your file, no iTunes crap to deal with!
How good is the sound quality on this phone - is it in stereo when playing music with bass? How good is the call quality - anyone?

You need to either speak to your provider, or check your settings, and either stick with 2g, or 3g, by either enabling or disabling "use 2G networks", and switch off roaming, or select another network mode.
As for messaging, the folder style is dead..but for another text app, search the market or try something like Handcent.

Android 3.0...what utter garbage.
You can install apps on Android 2.2 Froyo, right now if your phone supports it.
Cathy, 22 Aug 2010Does anyone know how to install the Android apps to a mini sd card instead of using the phones... moreApps installation on SD Card is possible only in Android 3.0 which expected to release in 2011. First phone will be from LG.
My unit losses signal and lock/freeze (3G to 2G ??) while my Moto VE66 (with same carrier) does not.
SMS texting and handling is weird, any recomendation
on any Droid app for texting?
P.S. Now Google knows more about me than I do.. :)
I bought my GT540 from Carphone Warehouse 3 weeks ago on T-Mobile (its actually unlocked...thanks CPW)
The problem is my phone keeps losing its signal. Randomly I keep getting "No Service"..re-booting the phones seems to restore things.
I know the signal is ok..a Nokia N95 8Gb held next to this phone shows full signal on Virgin (same network)
Do I need to return the phone or is there something I can do to avoid this? Or is it a bug thats likely to be corrected?
Many thanks in advance.
By Far the best LG Phone I Hav Had so Far. I Hav not had any problems with this phone at all.
The Screen is Very sensitive for a resistive, the OS Responds well the 256MB RAM makes it a reliable device for running multiple apps at the same time. Realtime syncronization with my computer or practically any bluetooth device and sound is crisp which is downfall for many phones.
Only has 130MB of onboard space - but supports upto 32GB card so thats not a problem.
Ships with older 1.6 android but LG have said they will release a 2.1 update later this year.
Does not support Flash - but I recon they could update it if u hassle them enough.
This is best budget phone ive found, I bought it for £100 which I consider a bargain for what it can do.
Its well up there for a phone thats cheap wel built looks nice adn jam packed full of surprises.
