I just got this form as an upgrade and I am so not happy with it. It is very hard to use and the touch screen on my phone was not brilliantly responsive.
Also I got this as a competitor to the iphone and have been told on my occasions that it was even better. Personally I think the best thing about the iphone is the applications - this phone doesnt have any good applications and in fact when I went to the applications store I found a total of 4 that could be downloaded.
Needless to say I was very disappointed.
The design of the phone is lovely and I would love to be able to get to grips with it but I think that maybe it is just a bit too sophisiticated for me and that I want a phone that I can play with - whereas this seems to be a phone for work.
I am sending it back and getting an iphone!

Nice phone, reasonably smooth menu transitions. Pretty iPhone like but who cares! But things I hate are that the screen is actually 65K color instead of the claimed 16M color; The music player seems not to be reading ID3 tags properly; And the response is pretty slow.
I dont know if any one has seen this or noticed.
But today LG released a New firmware for this phone.
The Release is currenlty on for the Unbranded UK versions of the phone.
You can check to see what version you currenlty have.
On the Box it should say GBR.
In the phone the version for the unbranded one is 10i.
The New version for this phone is 10m.
I not able to try anything tonight so cant let you know if there are any changes.
I have the km900 over a week now and it's great it has 8gb intern and up to 32gb sdslot. camara is also great expesialy the camcorder d1 quality. interface is working fine and is not that an iphone ripoff.
i don't understand why people are saying its got poor battery life? you do need to condition the battery first, but i've had mine 3 days now and i havent put it down and my battery has lasted, with wi-fi, bluetooth and calls, i've only charged it once since i've had it.
theres only one draw back i have with the phone, you can't use the volume control on the handset when i'm playing music through my sony ericsson HBH220 stereo bluetooth headphones, but the head phones have a built in volume button.
