Update: After speaking to Vodafone today for many long hours. I have been informed that in about 2weeks all people who have this phone through Vodafone AUSTRALIA, will be able to use Vodafonelive browser. I was told that the reason why it wasn't working is because the settings had not yet be configured to apply to this phone and will be done so in a matter of days. But could be up to 2weeks.
I like the designs and the UI in the phone. The UI is unique and different... it has it all. I can fairly say this is the best buy with the amount of $$ you would like to let go in these situations. No to mention that you will look cool owning it.
I liked the features it is easy and fun to deal with. And the good part is that every day you discover new stuff ...
I was recently shown this phone, it is a perfect size, and you can do pretty much anything with this phone, i was watching a movie clip and omg it is unreal the qaulity that comes from it, the golby mobile definatly makes the difference.
With the Viewty 2 and its 8 mpix coming soon, cannot see the point for this phone. Prefere to wait a few weeks more for a good camera.
Just got this phone thru voda AUS.
Great phone, just upgraded from the Renoir.
In regards to the divx playback, you need to convert it just the same as you did with the Renoir. So I can't really see it as stepping back!
Speakers are very strong and not much distortion.
Multi touch is excellent. Looking forwards to using this for the next 24 months!
Guys and gals, check out mylgarena.com...lot of games to playback in the arena and also a free GPS download!
what da heck.... the "top rated" phone on front page LIES! this is rated 8.1, not 8.7 :/
This phone is not #1
Is it possible to control the music player without taking the phone out of your pocket? Maybe by holding the volume button down or something like that. As fare as I have gathered there is no wired remote for the Arena.
Hi there KM900 users. Just a couple of things about the phone.
1: I love it. I've only had it for 3 days. But its already proving itself to be better than any other phone i have owned.
2: Yes the battery life is a bit on the bad side, but i'm convinced that this might be a fault with the batteries them self's. So maybe call up LG about them.
3: If you live in Australia and have this phone through Vodafone. Don't even bother trying to use the Vodafonelive searcher. I tried for over an hour to download apps from there. Only to find out it is not compatible with the KM900. So it beats me why they even bothered to add it. But oh well!!!
4: To all those people out there that say its the poor mans iPhone or that the iPhone is better by far. Why don't you hit the Compare option on this page and compare it to your be-loved iPhone. I believe you'll be in for a rude awakening. Sorry but its true.
And last but not least. Every phone has its good and bad points. In all honesty it all comes down to 2 things. The phone has to suit your needs. And, personal opinion. If you don't like it, buy something else :) So personally, i love this phone. And thats why i got it.

You cannot compare the iPhone which has had three major firmware updates to the Arena which has only just been released.
