muzic, 21 Sep 2009do we have themes for the phone? no themes.,, officially but you can try prada themes. By risking bricking your phone
Search for mylgcookie in Google and go to the url. For all the info you ever need to buy the cookie. It is a feature phone and not a smartphone, it does not have an OS. It cannot run native applications. only third party apps you will ever get on this phone are java apps. Like opera mini and ebuddy. Had this phone for over 4months and after two firmware updates, the latest v10y, the phone is awesome. Don't think much of the motion sensor Game which hogs the battery cuz you can't turn off the vibrator while playing the game. The novelty wears off after a day. Battery lasts one day or less. While running java apps the backlight will not turn off even if you don't touch the screen for hours. Two standby screens and an alignment sensor for photos and videos is the best part.
just a boss set.but im thinking,why the price is cheap compared with the other equivalent set.I've this super set.
kokey, 26 Sep 2009yeah its true. cookie is for people who dont have enough money to buy expensive touchscreen ph... moreI totally agree with kokey. iPhone is not such a good phone. but i agree the touch responce is damn cool. But wats the use of such a great phone if it doesnt even have a bluetooth support?? it supports only stereo headsets, and u cant use it to transfer files between two phones..dats a great drawback.. and besides haha...lol...it has just a 2 MP camera...so cheap!!! just 2 MP camera for such huge money you pay!! gr8 huh?? and as far as i know, u cant run any 3rd party apps without jailbreaking it!! and if u jailbrreak it, u void the warranty...and hey! where the hell is sms forwarding?? and no video recording...no camera zooming...and u cant even remove the battery....now u ppl understand?? iPhone is actually useless....its got the best touch responce ever...and dats it...it lacks the most common and basic requirements!!!! such a cheap phone for such a huge price!!! i would rather prefer cookie than iPhone!!!
jonas brothers, 26 Sep 2009cookie is nowhere close than the iphone.. compare it here in gsmarena. and you'll see what i'm... moreyeah its true. cookie is for people who dont have enough money to buy expensive touchscreen phones, while iphone is for rich people who are stupid enough to fall for the iphone while there are so many other capacitive touchscreen phones that are 8megapix and are way cheaper and has better features than the iphone. they might even buy a vertu phone if its in the same shop as the iphone.hahaha
one more thing, even the star is far more greater than this cookie, BECAUSE
you can put more widgets!
3 screens compared to cookie that has 2!
Much mcuh greater battery back up! unlike cookie! yeah!
Sleek design, unlike cookie, looks like a toy!
the screen is not that sensitive! unlike star!
user interface of the cookie sucks! i mean really..
cookie is nowhere close than the iphone.. compare it here in gsmarena. and you'll see what i'm talking about.
The iphone is released much earlier than the cookie. Year 2007, and cookie is released 2008. But still even if iphone is released much earlier it is far more greater than the cookie.. just look at the specs!~
And even the iphone with 3g which is released at the same year as the cookie, theres no comparison.
Cookie is for people who don't have money.
While iphone are for those that have cash.
~So yeah, even i myself would choose iphone over cookie. And if someone offer me to trade their iphone to my cookie (as if theres someone, haha!) i would definitely trade my cookie.. its a no brainer, you know!
O M G ! I smell a war starting here? hihi
I've read Sir Inglisero's comment about the 8 MP camera thingy. And upon reading...he is not saying it has a 8MP camera but sez it "luks like" it was taken with the same quality.
I can totally agree about the user's here considering that my sis owns a cookie and I own a Nokia n97 for a change....i love my N97 but if I owned a Cookie and an Iphone...I will go for the Cookie. The Iphone is not really a good phone...its just plain advertising strategy to market it...nyahahaha!
I have been using my Cookie for a couple of months or so. There are things that I like and particularly not fond of. But as a whole the mobile is good for doctors on the go like me. My colleague who ownd IPhone is in full remorse knowing that theycould have saved more by having a cookie instead in replacemnet to an IPhone.
I personally do not own an Apple Phone, but I was able to test it for a week before its initial launching because my fiance' works for Apple. lol
I dont like the idea of the Iphone really. It might looks expemsive and all that stuff fancy. Im not impressed.
I would rather get a Cookie. I can afford to buy an Iphone but its my choice not to.
In response to the mate's reply to Inglisero. I have used the Cookie for almost 9 months without any problems except for minor glitch on the system that is a rarity.
The LG Cookie Camera is far better than IPhone to put that debate closed once and for all. The bloody phon's camera is rubbish in comparison to Cookie. Inglisero is also correct and I can affirm that the camera quality "looks like taken from an 8 MP" but we do not claim it is an 8 MP quality.
The Iphone has extra feature that Cookie doesn't have but the Cookie was able to simply compensate fait enough.
I will not trade my Cookie for an IPhone as well. I own a bloody Iphone for Orange under Contact! It sucks!
what???, 25 Sep 2009your lg took pictures like it was taken on a 8 megapixel camera?! oh come on! do you own a dig... moreyeah right @ what?....i own an Iphone 3gs and I am not impressed with it. Considering that I owned one in comparison to the Lg cookie. I dont like it. Period!
v, 25 Sep 2009i have questions: how is the quality of the speaker,earphone? this is wifi ready right? if you... moreuse the free screen protectors to avoid scratches from pen/stylus or finger nails. speakers are loud and clear but the coookie doesn't have wifi. you might want the new express music phones instead. both 5530 and 5800 have wifi but cost $100 more.
Ganesh, 25 Sep 2009thankx again kokey. but how do i check the version before buying? the seller wont open the box... morethe firmware version isn't stated on the box. the phone has to be turned on and go to >top menu>settings>phone settings>handset info. or just dial 1809#*500# and click version. though i suggest using the first method as the 2nd one is the phone's test mode. you might make the phone crash.
anyway if you can't open the box you might want to go to the nearest LG center first and ask if they can update to the newest firmware. they'll do it for free for phones with warranty.
i have questions: how is the quality of the speaker,earphone? this is wifi ready right? if you enter a wifi ready restaurant/food chain, will the wifi be automatically be activated? sorry, i'm not much familiar with wifi zones. will the pen/stick scratch the monitor of the casing? i am planning to buy this unit by december or january maybe? if i ever have money by that time? please help me? this is my possible replacement for my nokia 5130 unit. thanks for the reply
kokey, 25 Sep 2009hi ganesh yes you can update your firmware. all the major bugs have been fixed by the new sof... morethankx again kokey. but how do i check the version before buying? the seller wont open the box before buying. what shud i do? will the version be written on the box of the phone?
what i hate about cookie is when you are replying to somebodys message then when another message came it pop out instantly and chances are the message you are typing will be lost if you press wrong button and you have to type again.., i really hate texting using LG COKIE.. the feauture is good, all about the camera is good especially the video but the i will rate it as ZERO in userfriendliness...., i really hate it,,..
anyone tried this?
i transferred some pictures taken from my old phones to my cookie and to my surprize, pictures from my old nokia 3650 and motorola v360 looked amazing. both these phones have VGA cameras yet the pictures look the same as the ones from my 2megapix nokia n70.
hmm i wonder if the cookie somehow enhances these pictures. because when i view the pictures, they start up really blurry then clears up to reveal really good quality pictures..wierd
