marky b, 15 May 2009can anyone get the updater tool to work from the lg website?no i cant eitha but the pc suite has somethin on it 2 upgrade it
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.
