Warning. Do not buy this phone. I had one returned it. I updated to latest firmware yet still this phone after a year on the market has software problems. With latest firmware it still turns off whilst texting phone freezes whilst taking photo having to remove battery. Also screen flickers alot and suffers screen burn whereby parts of the previous menu is still burnt into the screen. Battery life is terrible i have to charge it twice a day even with minimal use and 3G off. All LG phones suffer still with poor reliablity. Will never buy their phones again. Though they make great tv sets

Note: FM transmitter in some firmwares does not work properly, e.g. no base or poor sound quality... try it out yourself.
woody, 25 Jan 2010can we backup applications to the extrnal memory on LG Arena? and restore them back after hard... moreThere is no way to backup applications and restore them back after the hard reset via secret menu (i.e. 1809#*900#). It means that you need to re-download again the applications after the hard reset.
The factory reset that's in the regular phone settings menu, from my experience, it resets all the basic settings of the phone, such as homescreens and profiles. It does not erase phone memory, contacts, multimedia files and so on.
The factory reset located in the secret menu (i.e. 1809#*900#) will completely reset the phone to its original state, erasing everything without any exceptions. DO IT ONLY IF YOU HAVE EVERYTHING BACKUP beforehand.
i have just bought this phone and i cant find how to get to the fm transmitter option to play my music thru my car stereo..can some one please help me out...thx.

Pedro, 25 Jan 2010"IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 01 or 10 this means your cellphone is very Good.&... moreIMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is unique 15 digit identification number of the Mobile Handset. It is like the registration number of your vehicle. No two mobile handsets in the world should have the same IMEI number. IMEI number is an important tool for the handset tracking. From IMEI number one can identify the make and model of the handset.
IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 03 or 30 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Korea which is very Good.

Nikolov, 24 Jan 2010 This can be used in any cellphone ?Yep, It can be used in any brand cellphones.
IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 02 or 20 this means your cellphone is low quality.
IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 08 or 80 this means your cellphone is fair quality.
IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 01 or 10 this means your cellphone is very Good.
IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 00 this means your cellphone was manufactured in original factory which is the best Mobile Quality.
IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 13 this means your cellphone is very Bad quality and also dangerous for your health.

Nikolov, 23 Jan 2010 Hi. I want to know is there any code to verify that my lg km900 is original. Press *#06# on your mobile and the international mobile equipment identity number appears. Then check the 7th and 8th numbers:

Malaysian User, 23 Jan 2010People, If you ever consider on buying this model, I can say "Forget About It!!" ... moreI have this phone for a week now & have had not a single problem with it. It has not crashed or rebooted or froze. Everything is fast & reliable I really do not understand what people are saying. Mine also has latest firmwere which is stable. LG are a big brand they sell more phones than Sony Ericsson.
