Please let me know how can I turn off playing the song because I want to switch the language and it tells me to turn off any active applications. It has only "Pause" or "Play" button, I didn't see "Stop". Sorry for the dumm question but..
I am the 1st to own this phone on 1st July, in Ipoh, Msia, $1999 retail price but got it for $1850 with 4gb card. Phone is beautiful, functions are great, but not so SMOOTH to use. Have to adapt to some flaws and take consolation from this beautiful form factor.
The menu operates slowly and nearly sluggish at times but still at a tolerable level. This sluggishness can be to your advantage bcoz you will have more time to FLASH your beautiful phone while performing a simple function. What's the use of buying an expensive beautiful phone that operates as fast as a Ferrari where it will be back in your pocket in a FLASH. Now, which type of FLASH do you want?? Just take your time to operate it slowly and call it LG Patience instead of Secret, then you will feel great about it.
Speaker sound is loud but treble too high despite equaliser settings. Using earphones sounds totally different and pleasurable. Videos are beautiful to watch with this screen, giving very high detailing and sharpness both 3gp and divx formats. Touchkeys are just a matter of getting used to it, which I require 7 days to have a good feel and minimal wrong presses. SMS a bit tiring due to the alphanumeric keypad average feedback. Visual & Audio Enhancement functions can be turned on & off but produce minimal results except draining the battery. Camera & Video menu settings cannot be operated speedily due to menu layout and touch sensitive keys. Pictures taken with sufficient lighting is beautiful but has an effect like wearing UV sunglasses. Objects with insufficient lighting will be discolored but u can tweak the settings. LED Flash totally useless for photography as it over-expose the object in focus. Videos are fun to use, especially slow-speed recording very useful. Imagine shooting a video of all the rooms in your house in 1 minute by running around, and then play back the video which moves slowly & steadily showing every detail of your whole house in 4 minute video which u can also add background mp3 music using phone built-in software. The LED Flash becomes useful for Video shooting as it illuminates like a torchlight in dark places. LG PC Suite Software can easily connect using bluetooth or USB which transfers files without hassle if you ......(secret!). One hint I can give you is, explore all the option settings available in Connectivity Menu so that you can set the right settings to use your phone with the PC efficiently. The manual is useless, many settings and sub-menus are not mentioned but have to be explored in all possible ways, horizontal, vertical, backflip, sommersault etc. gives you different/more options sometimes. The phone comes with a drama movie, which is called Battery. The battery life dramatically exhaust itself whenever you use it for games/videos/camera. My impression is the battery produces 45% energy compared with Sony K700i which is my previous phone. Probably the large display screen is the culprit. Try to turn off bluetooth, 3G, video & audio enhancements to save battery. Auto backlight helps too but if custom set to 50% would save even more. Signal strength is surprisingly better than my old Sony K700i. Oh yes, for all those who has been enjoying 3D Java Games, sad to say, this LG Secret could not run these games smoothly, it moves frame by frame, sigh! This is the only 1 flaw which I can't console myself, not even motion-sensor games.
Despite the negatives, which is bound to have in any other phone brands/models, I still love my LG Secret for it's Beautiful Looks and Great Features in such slim size and long lasting materials used which also makes it weigh expensively.
Ok, that's my 1st ever phone review and hope I am able to help you to decide whether to own this baby or not.

Im am on O2 in the UK and can not find the Google Apps Package anywhere. Do I have to load it in, or have I just missed it.
I guess there is a PC software given with the phone to manage file transfer, SMS... Is it easy to use and has enough possibilities ?(Nokia PC suite is quite good)
If there is no TV out cable in the box, is it easy to find in shops ?
