Ok I withdraw my comment about the sirocco not being a true slider but it's definately a posers phone. No flash for the camera, no auto focus, no memory card slot. And boy does it collect fingerprints.
Why are Nokia fan boys so stupid? This is nothing like the Sirocco (Nokia 8800) and is not meant to be. This is a true sliding phone where as the Sirocco is just a sliding cover. The shine has a higher screen resolution (240x320 as opposed to 208x208) and the shine has a better quality camera.
In my opinion the Sirocco is just a posers phone with average features.
fun and brilliant little mobile
sleek and stylish mobile. real trend setter. mwaaaah!!!!!!!!!!!
This phone is quite simply a poor mans 8800. If you want a phone that truely shines, get an 8800 or if you are second best get this. Only for people who do not have the class to own an 8800 and want to jump onto the bandwagon.
1 - Yes you can use MP3s for the ringtones
2 - The ringer is loud but not as lod as some phones
3 - I don't know what frequency Cingular use so I couldn't say
4 - My Shine has some bugs which LG has acknowledged and are working on but nothing like the two you just described.
Hi everyone, I have had two LG shine phones in as many weeks. The first one would only charge when it felt like it and at worst remained dead for 4 days and now my replacement phone will sometimes not switch on after being switched off...even though I know the battery is full! Has anyone else had these problems or am I just susceptible to bad luck!
i just purchased the shine yesterday and i must say it is an awesome looking phone. everyone who see's it, loves the finish. It truly shines!!! Looks are absolutly sexy however there are a couple fundamental things I do not favour. First the scroll is a little delayed, so when you are trying to select something, you sometimes end up selecting the wrong function. The little tiny buttons on the corners of the scroll take some time to get used to but if you don't have overly large fingers, it should be ok. I was hoping that you are able to press one of the outside buttons to answer an incoming call without sliding the phone but there is no option to do that. The last thing is sync'ing to my comp, it takes an eternity to load up. Maybe it may be my comp, but i am running on P4 so I donno. overall, I tell ya, if you want some hand candy, this phones for you...
I've been really looking to buy this phone, but I wanted to make sure it was compatible with Cingular in the US. Also, I'm worried that ringtones and such could be a problem, if I bought/downloaded them from Cingular.
hi what is the mp3 play back like? also are the pictures clear? can you use mp3s as a ringtone? also does the phone have a loud ringtones? i have the k800i would you recommend swapping to the lg shine? thankyou to anyone who can help. Also i am open to rexommendations of other phones. Cheers
I just think this phone is so gorgeous, oh my god have you ever seen a better phone, like come on. OH MUMMY
I have just purchased my phone I have to say it simply looks good and that is about it thank goodness I only have it for a year! In the morning I like to wake up with a decent sound but on this the choices are teribble!!!!
Why would it? And given that a lot of countries are starting to stop broadcasting in analogue an FM radio would prove useless in them.
Maximum video resolution is 176 x 144. Not the best in the world.
As to the ringtone/mp3 playlist bug LG have got back to me saying they have passed it on to research and development department so hopefully a new firmware out some time soon.
This phone totally caught my attention. It's so bloody chic! I own a Nokia N80, should i get this as my secondary phone?
bought the phone about a week ago. took care of the t-zones problem i had working fine now. the trick is to tell the tmobile people in u.s is that the menu is compatible with L1400 lg phone then they send the right settings to you.
now 1 problem fixed i am coming up with another one. recently my phone starts to shut off on its own and i cant turn it on unless i take the battery out and put it back in. is that happening to anyone else?
also is there no software update for this phone on the website yet?
