ive just recently ordered the kg800 chocolate and it looks stunning. however ive also just gone through some reviews and alot of people didnt rate it very high as far as features and perfomance goes. i recently tried a slide phone and didnt get on with the keypad; i like to text alot. so how easy is the design to get along with? my basic question is.. is this phone really as good as it looks?
after looking at reviews i am unsure as to cancel the phone ive ordered and go for something like the motorolla v3x. i really like the look of the chocolate..but is it worth while?
opinions will be greatly apreciated :) thanks x
i whant to buy a LG KG800, question:how long will those touch sensitive buttons with black light last? i mean how long will they work ok before they start to deteriorate, i'm asking even thou i am very carefull with phones. If someone who allreay has an KG800 can please fill me it will fantastic, thank you.
You can't change the volume for text messages. I was trying to figure that out as well, then i found out you couldnt. I know... it sux
question for any american buyers... how do you charge this phone? is the charger unique to the kg800? If so, would i need to buy an adapter from european outlets to American outlets? any help is greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance!
You can upload your own contact pictures. You need to take a 72x72 picture with the camera, then you need to make a 72x72 24bit bmp file on your computer, then replace the image on the phone. Then you can have custom contact pictures.
Also, you can upload JAVA games onto the phone using the Contents Bank. You need to open the config file in the Contents Bank folder, and put a "Y" instead of an "N" next to the Java line. Then you get the Java button when you open Contents Bank. You must put a .jar file and its corresponding .jad file into a new folder you label JAVA into the Contents Directory. It's all posted in forums.
YES, the KEYPAD does light up. I don't understand why people write with such conviction when they don't even know. Have you ever tried it?
Can't initialise the Contents Bank application, though the phone can be connected to the PC. Any one can help?
hey ive been looking at this phone 4 a while & cant decide wether 2 get it or the samsung E900. The lg looks amazing but the samsung seems to have better memory etc... any advice on what one i should get?? plz help xox
does anybody know how to find the text message volume? I looked in profiles/personalise and there is only message alert type and tone but not volume.
thanks for the replies.
Lg Chocolate is such a nice phone. i like it.
For the keypad to light up, press Menu, Go to settings, Connectivity , Power Save and select Off.
to use the Contents Bank, you need to activate the modem by pressing Meny, Settings, Connectivity, Modem, and then press Yes to activate.
Remember the chocolate works as a mass storage as well as a Modem
the keypad does NOT light up, the touchpad does.. not the keypad.. anyway, where's the problem in that? most people can write msgs without looking anyway.. no big deal
Hi with regards to my post dated 17/07/06
I had my handset replaced and it goes as follows
1,Does the keypad light up?
YES your handset should light up in the dark, if it doesnt then its faulty, get it changed like me.
2,Can you change the message tone?
NOT that i'm aware i have tried and keep trying but no success yet, if i work out how too will post it here.
3, Can you add pics to contact numbers?
YES but the camera must be set to 72x72 resolution.
4, Can you see display outside?
YES my first handset was faulty.
thanks for all your help and advice people, now i have an LG Chocolate handset that actually works i think its a good phone.
the keypad does light up. even in power saving option. your phone does have a problem

The application "LG Contents Bank" can't initalise itself. Any one can help?
this phone is great the camera is just fine and it small and sleek just the way i like it. i do not have one single complain about this phone.
This is a beutifull phone, the red on top of the black it even smell like chocolate, but wait why some many peoples in here complain about the camera and the memory, remember guys this is a "PHONE" remember you know to make calls..... dont be expecting "100.2 Megapixel" for the camera and "1000 Gigabit" for the memory, then just wait for year 2100!!!
