the GSMARENA forgot to mention the memory status of LG Arena... for the information of all users of Lg Arena, the built in 8gig user memory of arena is not a shared type storage....there are different storage alocation for each type of files you want to storeon the phone.like if you want to store a midlet application on the phone, the allocated size for this files is around 500mb so if you want to store midlet apps to the phone and you've reach the allocated size you've nothing to do but delete the old one in order to install the new one. very annoying this unit but that is the type of unit i have! embarrasing but it is the nature of LG Arena. One more thing, when you install a landscape mode touch game to the phone, the unit doesn't turned landscape like any touch phone in the market. maybe my firmware version is oldest version but i just buy the phone in 2 days!
so, for anyone that amazed to buy this LG Arena you'd better think trice and determine first what do you want in the mobile phone. and read the comments and opinions of the people with the unit you want to buy.
i have nokia 5800 and i'd says you better buy this than LG Arena....i've inserted 16gig of removable card but the performance is still the same even i put up so mamy files on it....

MyArena, 07 Aug 2009Something weird will happened when I access the analog clock in widget home screen... We all... moreomg! that is so weird. i actually tried that with my arena and felt quite silly doing it too... until it actually happened. and now, my phone shut down for around thirty seconds.
Something weird will happened when I access the analog clock in widget home screen...
We all known that when we access the analog clock in widget home screen, the date will pop up in middle of the clock widget. When you seeing the pop up date, remember don't blink you eyes :) and try to gaze the date for approximate 40 seconds. After that you will notice something abnormal will happen, the month will suddenly skip further. E.g. today date is 7 Aug 2009, the month in the clock widget will skip & change to 07 Sep 2009 after approx. 40 seconds elapsed.
Any mates here who read my post ever experienced and noticed this abnormal clock widget as mentioned above?
Does this have Korean Language and Korean text input for SMS.
If not is there a way to add korean text?

You meant we need to solve the issues ourself by updating the new firmware in a later date after bought the phone with so many bug?????
We're their royal customers, not part of their technical team to help them solve the issues. We spend the money to support and bought their products to use, not get frustrated and fed up after use their product. And furthermore need to act part of their technical team to solve the issues ourself.
I wonder why and what happened to LG technical team can released this such of lousy phone in market with so many bug which happened very frequently (hang, auto restart, auto shut down & etc)and made people suffer and frustrated after used the phone.
The phone is good as long as it is compared to other phones in the market other than the IPHONE, its wrongly named as the I phone killer.
Positives first. Great looks, light in weight, cool features listed.Nice camera shots, great music almost pleasant. Priced right,file manager,divx movies.8GB internal mem. + Ext 32GB MSD, other web and connectivity, call clarity.
Coming to the negetives there are so many like the PC suite dosent work on computers higher than WINXP SP2, I have a SP3 and it dosent work. So finally you need to use it like a pendrive in the Mass storage mode.
I own one and this is a sluggish phone hangs so very often that it gets frustrating at times. Poor battery backup, it dosent stay on more than 2hrs 30 mins call. If you use video or other multimedia, that drops... wrong display of 30hrs music its not so..Poor multitasking, better to say no multi tasking at all, hangs if you want to access anything else.
finally very few options avaialble on net as apps for the LG. Their S/W being soo not up-to-date many s/w bugs could be fixed but Its LG so not expecting.
Finally IMHO if you can spend on a good phone better go for IPHONE nothing likely to be anywhere near it.... The truth is all want to compete with the giant ;)...
I checked the IPhone its awesome,,,, I can say that but for better features like the bluetooth connectivity, call volume, were tweaked in the Iphone nothing that can beat it even for name sake..
