has anyone used the phone to do internet browsing? i'm about to go on an overseas holiday, and i'm thinking of getting the prada phone so i can leave my laptop/maps/lonely planet etc. at home.
Hi, to answer the California friends question. I worked for T-mobile b4. You phone is from Asia and that's why (IT IS NORMAL) you pick up Cingular signal. One of the reason is that T-mobile shares a towers with Cingular in some area. So, don't worry. Plus, in CA, in bay area, like san jose, san francisco, san mateo..etc.. Cingular have a way bettery reception than T-mobile. So.. it's good that you can pick up Cingular instead of T-mobile. But don't worry, your will NEVER be charged by Cingular..
For internet access.. or emailiing.. I am not quite sure, but what i know is that you will have to sign up the internet program with T-mobile... you will be able to use whatever emailing or.. internet access...
You might try to call T-mobile customer care by dial 611, ask for Technical Support.. but I don't think those T-mobile tech rep will know how to solve your PRADA problem... they might not even hear of this phone.
If I were you, i will try to tell whatever your phone error says ---to T-mobile tech rep.. and see if they can help you go throught for the setup... good luck...
Just got mine here in California. I am a tmobile user, but it is roaming onto cingular. Can anyone tell me how to have it pick up tmobile. Also email is giving me a dns error and browser does not work. Will these two functions work here in the states? If so, what are the settings I need to alter to make this work.
NIGELWH - can you tell me how you have found the battery life to be as i have heard various conflicting opinions. How much do you think I could realistically expect on a full charge. I would describe my usage as light to moderate.Thsnks.
Can anyone explain the scrolling text on the wallpaper in the beginning of this video?
Which firmware version has got this option?
You can see a video of the LG Prada with
DMB television here
DMB Television is very popular in South Korea and added to the Prada Phone over there.
Can any of the user inform me abt its battery life as i am using dynamite kg 300 and ve used kg 200 too but their standby time is only a day or so.These are not reliable in this sense.Pls post ur opinion abt it.Waiting for it
i just got it this morning. i'm slowly geting used to typing on a touchscreen but i like it so far. i'm trying to figure out how to make it work with isync now.
I've had this phone for about 3 weeks, only con is it not having a touch screen qwerty keyboard, what's up with that? I'll probably sell it when the iphone comes out for that reason only.
Ive had this phone for 4 days now.It certainly gets attention because of its looks.However,using it is very frustrating.Contacts are VERY hard to select using the touch scroll,often selecting someone else! If you want to make a simple call,then you have to unlock the phone on the side first,select keypad mode,then enter number.Texting is a similar nightmare.Selecting a letter,and hoping that it types what you want.Repeatingly,going back over what you want it to read.It will only take MP3 format,no ACC and you have to load each track on to the phone first,then move to your memory card,otherwise it thinks the tracks dont exist.The sound from the loudspeaker is very poor (same as LG shine)and even with vibrate on,is difficult to hear in your pocket.The mp3 player has NO equalizer - just set at 'normal' and played through quality aftermarket earphones,is at best 'tinny and distorted at medium volume' To be honest,its different,but now i wish i had gone for the Motorola ROKR E6.More practical and user friendly,plus it has a dedicated MP3 player with equalizer and 3.5mm headphone jack + its cheaper!!
Hi I have a question about ringtones on the LG Prada. I am using an MP3 format song as my ringtone but it only plays for about 20 secs before cutting off. Does anybody know if it is possible to extend this and make my phone ring for longer? Thanks.
this phone looks very good with an excellent design. i think this phone is definitely worth buying at any price.
if ur a txter dont get it the touch screen mks txtin impossible and navigation really hard good looking yeah practical NO WAY i thought the chocolate was bad but this takes the buscuit lg should stick to makin fridges
Amazing phone. Let's be honest... Prada and LG have blatently seized upon the Iphone idea... but with such style. Easy to use... texting as quick as any other phone... responsive, great camera and camera utilities, and above all, extremely good looking!
If anyone in the UK is interested in the Invisible Shield for the Prada you can buy them from Amazon for £7.99
I have read some very good reviews about them, once applied you can't see it (it's all in the name!) And you can keep the phone in your pocket with your keys and not get a mark on it! So you can finally ditch the silly Prada pouch! I just ordered mine.
I swapped my samsung P300 for the Prada and I'm very pleased with it so far.
1. i'm on O2 but reception and call quality have been fantastic so far, no problems.
2. I find the ring volume to be very loud, I have mine on the lowest setting and find that loud enough. Vibrate is strong, even when in the case.
3. I've had the phone for 2 months now and haven't had any crashes or freezes yet, it's been very reliable. The operating software is not quiet as fast as a Samsung but not bad, it's certainly not slow.
4. It is very easy to scratch, just don't put it in the same pocket as your keys, or keep it in the case and you will be fine.
Texting does take some getting used to but I'm now texting just as fast as I would with a normal keypad now.
hope that helps!
Come on people. Can anyone tell me whether I should buy this thing or not.Love the looks but want to know -
1. How is reception and call quality in general (I'm on orange).
2. Heard a few comments on ring volume being slightly low. Is this the case and do MP3 tones sound any louder?. If not is vibra alert enough to compensate.
3.Any major bugs , crashes , freezes of any kind. I currently have a Samsung and hope to get the same reliability.
4. How scratch prone is it if you are careful (I am reasonably so)
