I'm planning to buy this phone, but from the opinions, the camera can not be silent? There is anyone know how make it silent? maybe using the new firmware can fix it? thx
I m the user of Arena too,
n after a month i m using it,
its great phone but they should provided the touch pen,
because sometimes the screen is not sensitive,
now my phone, got one row of the button is not response 4 the touch too,
cause me unable to type my message properly.
When I first got the phone I was excited for the possiblities. After having it for the past 5 months I am ready to toss it out the window. The system is extremely slow, it has had problems locking up, google maps is worth anything on this phone, there is no useable GPS plus you can't find any apps to add. I have sent the phone in twice for a total of 6 weeks trying to get it fixed but it doesn't wotk much better. It hasn't locked up on me but it is so slow I do not do anything with it besides call and sometimes listen to music. Do not buy this phone if you want to use the features advertised.

Incidentally I think the UI is quite popular.
If anyone is thinking about buying this phone, I just want to say. The phone looks great but the UI is terrible. It is not user friendly and is not well thought out at all. It is so bad that I bought the phone and only use it for 1 month and gave it to my sister because I can't stand the UI and most of the phone functions. My sister now after using it for about 3 weeks can't stand this phone either.
This mobile dropped from 3rd floor on cemented flor and there was nothing to him, normaly works, only litle dent on the metal part of the mask :D
Rithy, 05 Nov 2009could anyone tell how we can change the theme in this phone?There is no theme for LG Arena. It means that you cannot changed the theme for your "Shortcut", "Widget", "Contact" and "Multimedia" homescreen. You only limited to change or customize your "Lock screen" wallpaper.

Some firmwares are working very well and some not. That is the reason why you will observe some position & negative comments for this phone from the user with different firmware version used.
All the bugs originate from the firmwares can be fixed easily yourself by using the tricks shared by the user or flashing it to a new firmware.

PS: My overall rating for this phone is 8.0.

Can this phone do that? Cheers.
There is mistake in review in Main disadvantages:No voice-guided GPS navigation software available. It is available voice-guided GPS navigation software and it is Wisepilot www.wisepilot.com.
i boght arena beafore 2 weeks. Device is just great, UI is so fast and in many ways phone is like iPhone. There are many GPS programs in java for this phone like MGMaps( http://www.mgmaps.com/ ), or Wisepilot ( https://www.wisepilot.com/nav11/site/portal.jsp?action=71&unit=LGkm900 )...
I have this phone for over 5 months and I have problems with screen freeze, and it turns off by itself some times. Is there any way to verify what firmware I have on the unit? v10p or v10c? how can I find out? If I need to install v10p, how can I do that? Take it back to the place where I original purchased? Or I can installed them myself.
Thank you in advance,
