This phone is brilliant. Loved absolutley evrything about it. People who say their texts wont work, its cos u bought it from argos. WHY U FINK DA PRISE GON DOWN IN ARGOS? DAY ALL FAULTI!!!!!!
iv'e done the same thing. Bought this phone from argos and there is no video although this is listed on argos.
Taking it back.
Had this phone for 4 weeks and very happy with all aspects of it, sound is great abd easy to use and no problems with texting. however, I didn't but this phone to take photos as I didn't buy a digital camera to make phone calls.
I have to say I bought this phone 6 days ago and i'm taking it back. It is hideous to use. I have texts that I can't access for some reason. It was working until yesturday when it just keeps popping up with 'please wait' when i try to access them. The sound is bad, the picture is bad, the keypad is bad. And to top it off, when i bought it i was told that i cannot return within 14 days if i don't like it, well it doesn't work so they are having it back, i can't be running to the shop everytime this happens. plus it's Friday so everybody who is texting me with plans for tonight thinks i'm ignoring them! So do not buy this phone, there are no redeeming qualities about it whatsoever!!!!!
If you check the Argos site there are now customer reviews of various phones including this one and anyone should remember Caviat Emptor (May the buyer beware). This phone has plenty of problems (certainly in the uk firmware) one of the problems is in the texting system not working (the person who had the phone had received the updates from Orange and read and deleted them turned the phone off as advised by the store and the phone would still not allow you to create a text message or go into the inbox of the message system) also when you try to master reset the phone with 0000 ie the default code for lg and the one named in the manual the phone freezes and then when you turn it off then on the phone asks for a security code which you dont have so you then have to head to an orange shop for them to sort out this codge up in design of this phone). Also the picture of the camera is the worst example of vga on a camera phone in fact the old LG7100 had a better camera in 2003 and even the old Siemens MC60 performed better and that ancient).
My friends cat photos were like mud.
Please avoid the phone like the plague there are better phones for your money that do mp3 ringtones. Some have 1.3 or 2 megapixel for the price being asked for this monstrosity.

Got this phone from Argos- listed in catalogue as having Video Capture- does anyone know anything about this.
Am I doing something wrong - i can't hear this phone when it rings nor can I hear anyone talking when they ring me - i have the phone on the highest volume setting (and my hearing is perfect!!): does anyone else have this problem. Any suggestions?
Phone Fanatic UK, 24 Sep 2008I realise this phone is low on memory but does anyone know for a fact if the phone is mp3 comp... morethis phone only supports amr and mid.
with software you can convert mp3 to amr.
however, the bitrate and the samplerate is limited for amr for this phone. So, the quality will be moderate.
I realise this phone is low on memory but does anyone know for a fact if the phone is mp3 compatible and can it have mp3 ringtone and mp3 message tone of your own choice?
Orange uk have not a clue and to contact lg mobile requires that you own an LG Mobile in the first place.
Ta for any help.

- no card slot,vga camera
According to Virgin Mobile here in France, it's a VGA camera. Looks nice though.
