I think that it's generally a good phone. It does lag quite a bit, and sometimes it freezes, so u have to take out the battery, and put it in again. Also, u can't change the backround image. (U can change the image, but it's for when it's locked. When it's unlocked, the backround is boring. Also, the battery dies very quickly, after like 1 hour of videos, the battery dies. The same thing 4 if ur using the browser. Generally it's an ok phone, but I got quite disapointed about a few things: 1. the battery life. 2.The youtube quality (it sucks!) and 3. the camera quality. Sometimes the pictures r good, and other times the pictures look like they have been taken with a 2 megapixel camera. I recomend the phone 4 people that don't mind taking their battery out, every now and then, and for people that wan't a cheap iphone. (It's kinda the same as an Iphone)

But if you're not satisfied with Arena perfomance afterall, try to look for another phone. Btw, Arena UI is more userfriendly than Jet.
Now I'm satisfied enough with my Arena perfomance. Factory reset is very usefull for me.

Stan35, 15 Feb 2010How do i go about in stalling ring tones can,t find any thing relating to them.
Many thanks.There is no specific ringtone menu on LG Arena. If you wanna change a ringtone just tap a sound file (but not the play icon) n there'll several option menu appear. And then choose "Use as" option menu. There you can make your selected sound file as a ringtone.
hope this can help...
Dr.Sherif, 15 Feb 2010Dear Beh, many thanks for your help. I have more problems with my arena:

But it will wipe handset memory data off (sms, contact, images, etc) without any confirm. Even though after firmware update, you might need to do so, if that kind problems still appear.
Try it, if you think its necessary.
I was considering to buy either this model or the GM750, although this model looks months older, seems its still better than the GM750 since it got a better video quality, screen & also supports DIVX...the problem is that I've read so many negative feed backs especially for this model & also the other one that left me completely blinded...poor battery life, software problems, screen etc...
I have the MDA WinMo & New battery lasts only for a day if used lightly, which is truly a drawback..
The Arena is gd priced if purchased from ebay Unlocked however the GM 750 retails for €329.00 from Vodafone & LOCKED! but 2yrs warranty...
Would really appreciate if those who own one can give me the last verdict.. :)
