klaudyu44, 29 Aug 2009it have calculator check utilities->tools->calculatorYup Thanks!
@ anthony20 in connection to your previous query about the price of the LG..I purchased it for Php9,400.
Just to update...the battery life of my phone is absolutely the best!
The first 2 days it only lasted a day ( I was dissapointed then.. ), the 3rd day it lasted 36 hours ( kinda improving...hmm), then the 4th day it last 2 days...( good job! ).
Considering that I am a heavy texter and I call my family and friends averaging 10-20 mins/day.I use more time also to learn explore its functions everyday, and I use it as an MP3 player when I go to the gym which I try to use for an hour at least.
Tip: Try not to overcharge your battery. Turn it off totally when charging.When you hear the beeping sound, unplug it right away. Charging last for 3 hours.
FYI: A common misconception, recharging the battery for an extended hours will not give your battery maximum strenght potential.So unplug it once the indicator is full.DO NOT LEAVE IT CHARGING OVERNIGHT!
How do I know this things? I worked for a mobile company before. = p

Inglisero, 27 Aug 2009Thats great to hear jagat101! Well I hope you enjoy your New LG Cookie as much as I did.
= )Yep Thanks Inglisero, I think I will enjoy the Cookie...even without WiFi on this set (will miss squint staring the interwebs on a small 2-3" smartphone/pda cell phone screen).
I'll leave the WiFi web browsing to my MacBook Pro... :)

I am counting today from the day I purchased my LG Cookie (which also happens to be my secondary phone aside from my E51)...4 days prior to me getting this marvelous piece of invention!
I will share to you what I've experienced with my new LG Cookie through different categories.
So far so good! I am enjoying the feel of it, texting is a thing I am getting used to but with no difficulties. I tried using the QWERTY and its is just right but I am just used to the idea of using the qwerty function. The hand recognition is awesome! I've used it once in awhile and I am impressed with how it works. And scanning messages is so cool by flickering it is great!
The voice reception is brillant! Shifting from handset to Speaker mode does not change the quality of reception unlike other phones.Speed Dial function has a very superb option.
Camera is average and decent. Do not expect to produce a good photo indoors.The Music Player is great and the sound is perfect even you are using the standard headset.There are lots of other full-multimedia features that are included which you need to discover yourself.In total, the multimedia is above average for me except for the camera which is plainly okay.
I am very impressed with all the tools added to this very cute phone. It is reliable and functional..the World Time is so cool that the Globe rotates when locating a City...Awesome! The phones has ATMP (Anti-theft Mobile Programming) which is also standard to most phone nowadays.
Well it is not what I expected..connection is very slow knowing that my previous handset with the same network has a very fast connection. But its okay I have Wi-Fi using my E51. Overall, not recommended for internet browsing.
In conclusion, I can say its a good buy considering the rich feature you can obtain from a very economically-priced handset in the market today. You have the luxury of a touchscreen-ala-Iphone and has the look of a CEO's phone...Lag issue is a rarity. The battery strenght is not all impressive but can be acceptable to some. Recharging takes 2-3 hours of the time daily.So, keep your travel charger handy at all times.
suresh, 26 Aug 2009this has vedio call ?nope, because it's only a 2G handset..
and has no secondary camera
Ok why is this the only phone with an overly complicated Email wizard?
Inglisero, 25 Aug 2009Hi jagat101! Well, I have the black one with grey accent at the side. I was able to see a silv... moreInglisero, I finally gave in yesterday and ordered via Amazon. I got a pretty good deal, converted in Peso it's around PHP7,341 shipped. I got the Vandyke Brown with the red accent..was thinking of getting the Black one but I find it too plain jane, too common for my taste..to each his own I guess). Plus I ordered a black rubberized hard case (so in effect, it will be "black")..to avoid breaking the thin digitizer lens (based form other owners complaints).
I assume that the oem KP500 body somehow flexes/bends a bit when worn in pant pockets (though I have no real plans on doing that..from experience, it's very uncomfortable to pocket a pda style phone, though I plan to use it in shirt pockets).
The way I see it, when the phone is pocketed the hard case will absorb the flexing first (imagine an "egg shell") leaving the main Cookie body intact/firm thus avoiding flexing and breaking the digitizer lens...
