personally this phone is good,,, but in just 1 week of using it,,, i experience so many problems about this phone,,,
the BATTERY is so poor, 3.5-4hours of charging for 1day of usage... even if u dont use wifi,gps,3g...and kill all the running apps that u dont noticed..
battery will last about 1.5 day... so bad. unreliable..
the OS running 1.6, here in the Philippines we still don't have an official update.
it hang and logs, stop.
there are thousand of andriod APPS available BUT you can install 20-25 apps because internal memory of GT540 is 120+mb... and take note you CANT install apps on your MICRO SD..
some apps from andriod market make ur phone really a crap. cuz it affects ur dial,menu,message button,, hard to press/ its not working...
but if you reset factory setting... your phone is good as new...
and i notice the 'MORE'and "back" keys not good quality buttons, it produce annoying sound,, =(..
camera is not good...
wifi connection is superb..
watching vids on youtube app is really fast..
no offline maps...
and now my phone wont shutdown....it stuck with the LG life good LOGO.. even if i RESTORE FACTory reset it. =(
the touch sensibility is really good.. i think its capacitive even though its resistive.. the difference is "multi-touch"
as of 2weeks of using it...
i must say its not trust worthy phone.. because of the VERY POOOR BATTTERRRYY... so bad.
andriod apps are amazing.
i agree with them. my phone battery gets low easily eventhough i didn't use it much..
ya u r write that wifi and 3g kills the battery. but the thing is i am nt using both of these n still battery backup is very small...when using any application for 10-15 min my battery gets down by 30%.
[deleted post]Firstly...don't put your email in a public forum. It's slightly dangerous and prone to spam.
Second...there was a lot of help a few pages back regarding upgrading...or just plug you phone into the PC and run the official LG updater tool. Unless of course there is an update available for your region.

This means that all the Android phones in this category(acc to price range) have the same set of features, but what distinguishes one from the other is the balance of hardware specifications, like RAM/ROM/CPU/GPU and also Camera Lens, Audio Technology/Spakers, etc.
So, dont rate the phone based on those features that u did.
nice one but for user side the internal memory shud b incresed up to 500 mb
I've been usign this phone for last week and I find it very nice. the GPS is awesome and it is helping me during my stay in India. I can go anywhere and dont have to rely on stupid three wheel drivers anymore. And I can have a check while travelling in Taxi or Three wheel to see whether the Driver taking the correct route.
Also the touch is better than I thought and interface is awesome. I didn't yet update to LG 2.1 yet.
MegaBubbletea, 08 Nov 2010You say there is no message in your inbox? Maybe you missed one? Else... Try clearing yo... morei've done everything, and what option only left for me is to reset it.... gggrrr, anyway thank you very much very helpful,.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010thanks...but what about the message i kept on seeing in my notification drawer??You say there is no message in your inbox? Maybe you missed one?
Try clearing your inbox? (There's SMS backup software)
Turn your phone off and on again?
If all else fails...
1) Reset your phone (not recommended)
2) Get other SMS app (Highly unlikely problem will go away)
