I've had my KM900 for over a year now, i found the memory quality good, but the firmware was definitely not up to scratch, even the updates aren't that good.
for example if i try to add a contact my phone simply turns off.
i hate to say it but i wish I'd just payed that extra bit more abd got an iphone, this is NOT an alternative smart phone.
can't say i'd recommend it or any other LG's.
if you decide to get one, good luck!

Then switch on the phone again. There's no other solution. It's a fault with the LG Arena. It switches off or freezes for no reason. Battery removal and re-installation is the only solution. Mine does this about once a week.
how do i update my firmware? what is the best updted firmware suitable for this phone(lg km900)? thanks for the help.

Been using this phone for 3 days now.. well so far so good. except for the battery.. lasts only for about 24hours if you're using 2G most the time. features are excellent. video play backs just insane.. cameras very good.. musics good.. touch sensitivity is fine.. screen is very good.. fits to hand very easily.. so if u wanna buy it then i think you should go for it

I have to laugh @ your comment Joel. Why shouldn't the readers believe the bad comments? They're not lies. Maybe your comment about how great the phone is the lie...
My honest take on this phone is that it does have lots of problems. Only some of them are fixed with the latest firmware...BUT not all. And most of all, the phone still freezes very frequently, especially if you are trying to multi-task with it.
I have the latest firmware (V10P_00) and have factory reset 3x already...
If you do some research on the web, you will come to find that about half the people likes the phone the other half absolutely hate it. Now I ask, is this the mark of a great, RELIABLE phone? (not to mention service) I think not.
Unfortunately, I am stuck with mine for the next 12 months. :(

Most complain about this phone cz they haven't upgraded to new firmware. I have T mobile version and i upgraded to latest v10x and phone is doing fine nw. I also did the 3x factory reset and no more hiccups. Believe me this is a great phone that you can buy. You kinda get addicted to it. The features you get is far more valuable. The great S class OS is amazing. My friends are kinds shocked to see it effects. If you compare with Nokia X6 build quality is far superior. It has all metal body. Audio quality is on par with iPOD and excellent with Dolby enhancement.Do you know that X6 Symbian is also sluggish? I wish LG could focus more with immediate bug fixes.
Don't feel down by others comments. I love this phone. It feels prestige to carry around.
I totally agree. I've owned this phone for about 1 month. I've had nothing but frustrations with it. Rebooting the phone is a daily activity for me. It freezes and lose signal constantly...
Going to swap it with another brand next week.
yep. it freeezes on me to soemtimes i wan to take pictures and i have to turn phone off and on to get it going..I like it it takes great pictures but it can get you on your last nerbs
