Btw, I'm at a bind if I would get the Samsung S5230/Tocco Lite or the KP500/LG Cookie..but it seems that the Sammy is no less reliable than the Cookie.
With that said, the LG seems to be cheaper now, has more user support/forum help, parts replacement availability (such as Ebay) and available firmware updates in the interwebs for the KP500...looks like I'll be jumping for the Cookie soon.

In the US, currently I can order the KP500 for PHP8,228 ($169.99) shipped to my door to CA...
There are TONS of cellfone stores in Manila & Makati. Hope to be back there next year!.. :D
Finally I have the chance to buy and get this phone today. I was originally planning to get this directly from the LG Shop which was recently opened last July @ Robinsons Galleria to be certain that I have decent, reliable, and original LG Cookie.
Alas! I went there and it actually cost more than I expected without a memory card, without an extra screen protector, and without any extra freebies ( which I thought I will be given something for buying directly form their shop lol ) But luckily enough, I was able to discover this teenie little mobile shop which seems and look like legitimate to me...I was offered Php9,400 +1 year warranty with NTC Certified registration,a 2GB external memory, and also a sleek leather case which has an interior silicone covering!
And the version is v10d...and I so loooooving it!

I'm on the fence on getting a KP500...after reading several owner complaints on cracked digitizer lens screens just by inserting it inside garment pockets, etc., I can't imagine the flimsiness/questionalble quality of this phone!
How is the long term reliability of the KP500? I'm not rough on cellphones (always keep them in protective cases/screen protectors, etc)...except for the occasional accidental drops, I'm concerned that if I do get this phone..it will not last me a year, even with careful use.

hey how do you install games?is it just click and drag like nokia and sony erickson or much more complicated like samsung? please help im planning to buy this phone,thanks
sam, 22 Aug 2009hey kokey!how do i check the firmware? if its v10d?go to >top menu >settings >phone settings >handset info. there you'll find your software version. it doesn't have to be v10d, any version above v10d is ok i think since its more recent. v10c & below still have some bugs so avoid it. allthough other newer versions are faster, some still have the calculator problem but the restarting bug is already fixed. v10d is the most stable and also the most common version so i suggested it.

In connection to your query if it is safe to purcahse the LG online...I would rather suggest that you go to a legitimate LG Shop wherein you can see and check the phone before purchasing. The possibilty of a defective mobile is high if you do buy it online.
