qw, 06 Sep 2009hey kokey.. wat do u mean by overcharging it for 8hours? should i do this right after i remove... morewell its not really official sop, its more of a tradition really.hehe passed down from experience by almost all phone owners. almost everyone i know does this to new phone batteries. i for one have done it to all my brand new phone batteries since my 2001. and i've proven it's effectiveness to all my phones up to the cookie.
anyway, brandnew cookie battery can power up your phone for a while. just drain it by playing with it. once it shuts down, find a time so you can charge it for 8hours straight despite being full at about 2&1/2hours. and remember it should be off. after 8hours remove it and use your phone as normal.
after that you can charge your phone normally next time it drains. but make sure you drain it before charging it normally atleast for the first few cycles.
most new batteries supposedly don't need this initial charging but based on the number of complaints i've read, its best to just do it. its only 1 time anyway..
hey kokey.. wat do u mean by overcharging it for 8hours? should i do this right after i removed it from the box? Is it the sop for all brand new battery? i'm sori because i'm not familiar with this things.. can i browse it for a little bit after removing from the box, then charge it afterwards?
qw, 06 Sep 2009kokey wat version r u in? i trust you because u seem to know lots of stuff about this cookie..hahaha i just read a lot of stuff from this forum:
its a help forum for cookie owners. it has everything about lg cookie. check it out.
btw my software version is v10d.
qw, 06 Sep 2009is it ok to buy a lower version than v10d then i'll be the one to upgrade?i guess if you know what you're doing it's ok. there's a step by step instruction anyway. but if something happens to your phone i dunno if your warranty covers it. its best if you buy a cookie with updated software already installed. there are a lot of stores selling this phone anyway, most of then have updated it already.
kokey wat version r u in? i trust you because u seem to know lots of stuff about this cookie..
comment pls!, 06 Sep 2009I think i'm going to get the cookie later.. 8.3k in greenhills with free 4gb of memory.. but i... moreand remember to initial charge you brand new battery. i guess you already know that. but to others who don't, that means overcharge it to around 8hours 1st time charging only. don't believe the manual that there's no need for it. maybe its the reason some owners complain of their battery life..

comment pls!, 06 Sep 2009I think i'm going to get the cookie later.. 8.3k in greenhills with free 4gb of memory.. but i... more1 more thing, before buying a cookie, check the software version if its v10d or above. v10a-v10c still have some major bugs... just to save you some headaches later:-)
wats up?, 06 Sep 2009hey, i just bought my new cookie.. and i think its version is not updated.. What's the latest ... morelatest official version is v10d.
latest unofficial version is v10z.
but i suggest you check your software version first. go to >top menu >settings >phone settings >handset info. if it says v10d stick with it. no need to update.
I think i'm going to get the cookie later.. 8.3k in greenhills with free 4gb of memory.. but i'll see if theres an available star now.. Because its out of stock now.. If theres none, i'll go for the cookie..

comment pls!, 06 Sep 2009how sad.. i really love to get this phone.. (despite the fact that the star is out of stock in... moreif you really want to buy a cookie you can always buy a spare battery. i got mine for 800pesos(around $16).
>2 cookie batteries lasts longer than 1 star battery. and the price difference between star and cookie can cover for the extra battery cost so there you go.
>there are no available spare battery for the star as of yet.hahaha
comment pls!, 06 Sep 2009how sad.. i really love to get this phone.. (despite the fact that the star is out of stock in... morefully charged, normal use usually lasts 2days. 15minutes calls, 100 txt messages, 1 hour music, 1 hour games, take some pictures and videos, per day.
1st battery bar lasts until the next day. once 1 bar goes down though, i limit my usage bacause it usually goes down faster. and once it gets to 1 bar left, i usually just have minutes remaining before it goes lowbat and dies. usually happens on the 2nd day.
but now i always charge my phone every morning so i can use it all day without worries. i never wait for the battery to go down anymore..
hey, i just bought my new cookie.. and i think its version is not updated.. What's the latest version and where can i download this?
how sad.. i really love to get this phone.. (despite the fact that the star is out of stock in my place) i really use my phone on calls.. 3h of talktime i think is not that enough.. But i do love this phone.. =c if only they've come up wid a better battery..
But i'm still considering to buy this..
hey kokey, how long does it take for the battery of your phone to run out?
comment pls!, 05 Sep 2009hey do u think the battery of this lg will last to me for a whole day? i'm like gonna use ... moreif battery life is most important to you, better go with the star. but even the star will not last the whole day if used non stop. but it'll last longer than the cookie. the xpress music 5800 lasts much longer though. more complete phone but i dunno if you can still consider it a budget phone. depends on your budget i guess..
hey do u think the battery of this lg will last to me for a whole day?
i'm like gonna use this for about more than 2 hours of talking on the phone, maybe send more or less 20 msgs..
do u think it will still have enough battery to listen to couple of songs, browse its features or maybe watch a video?
because this is what i usually do on my phone.. and my current phone couldn't keep up with my heavy usage.. i always charge it.. And i hate charging especially when i'm on a middle of doing something..
And its very inconvinient to bring your charger with you..
I need your answers asap! because i want to buy a budget touch screen phone and i'm stuck on what to get.. The star or this.. well theres no problem on the battery life of star but its out of stock now, (well in my place) i think it would be next week until they get a stock, i just can't wait that long..
and im thinking of getting this because i need a cellphone NOW.. i'm fed up with my current phone.. damn i hate my phone, i always charge it
my battery life is about 6 or 7 days,very good!i heard the phones who came with version 10d or higher are better.soon i will buy a new nokia 5800 from Romania at 178€.
