OK I've sent that to LG, hope they update it. Anyways I think this is a great phone. for its price tag. If compared to the first gen iPhone (locked) I think this is much better, yeah I know the UI is not as advance and there's the omission of the wifi. But still it can do so many things the iPhone can't video record and copy&paste anyone? =) In my VERY honest opinion with its UI, touch capabilities, sleekness, PRICE, this phone is a very good buy.
i beg to disagree, i had an iphone and cookie but i love the cookie better than d i phone. never had a prob w/ cookie. love it, very light and thin. user friendly, though ur right it is just basic touch phone but rating it according to its price i gave it 10/10! cool. peace. lol... :p
I've listed some bugs and things that can be upgraded to the phone KP500.
Version KP500AT_V10c +24
While on widget locked mode, (open widget selection and in the lower left there is an icon red (locked), green (unlocked)) when you shake the phone it still rearrange the widgets, also goes to the speed dial screen.
In the video playback landscape mode, when you lock the phone (using hardware lock) the lock icon in the screen (upper right) then unlock it the icon doesn’t disappear.
In Muvee studio settings (save location, music type) doesn’t save after you exit.
In editing mode, when you try to highlight text (for copy, cut) the dragging downward motion registers as a drag up. (eg. If you’re trying to copy something from top to bottom, the screen moves upwards.)
Mp4 sound gain table (it’s always too loud even on volume 1)
More Favourite Apps (specific items). eg. game, simcard menu, brightness setting etc.
Video recording frame rate from 7fps to 15fps and higher bitrates (don’t know if the processor can handle this)
Full screen playback of videos
Bigger caller Id picture, and calling animation (should be a kp500)
Landscape keyboard implementation in every text input-able fields (search contact, create contact, filenames, java apps, etc.)
More landscape features (landscape menus, landscape contact search(if your already in landscape mode in messaging why search in upright form?))
Upright gallery mode and a folder based gallery mode
Voice commands, you have it on your watch phone right?
A full html browser
(and I'm also residing in the Philippines)
Please don't buy this phone('coz I don't want everyone to have it (I want the exclusivity) hehe joke)
Pepsi, 24 Jan 2009You've had it for one day? lol
Just you wait, LG's are full of glitches and bugs, you will ... morehey, after software update, almost no one complains about the serious bugs.
and iphone is much more expensive than this phone.

Just you wait, LG's are full of glitches and bugs, you will start to see it after you've had it for a while.
And better than the iPhone? LOL I don't think so. No 3G, no OS. What makes the iPhone what it is are it's great operating system, fast internet browsing, overall great web experience and the downloadable applications and games. This phone comes no where near the iPhone's greatness. You obviously have never used an iPhone but I can guarentee you if you did you would see how it beats this phone by far.
My phone came in yesterday. The best phone i ever bought. Way better than the i phone or the g1. The phones features are excellent. The 2g internet is excellent. The speakers are really loud. And the games are fun. The keyboard for messaging is the best thing about the phone. Also the phone is not as big as the i phone so i like that.
Thats all. Grat phone.
for how much it costs you cant really go wrong. very decent and smart lil touch phone, which can live up to the reputation of its bigger brothers. the touch screen can be estatic at times but thats only after constant use.
the camera is decent as well for a 3mp.
feature packed as well, well worth its money
3questions, i need answers badly pleeease?
1. SORTING FILES- is there a way of sorting files (pics&vids) to a folder, either DRAG&DROP or should it be done via PC? or is there a another way?
2. SITE FOR FREE GAMES- is there a site that users in the Phils can download FREE GAMES?
3. ACCESSORIES- where in Manila/Makati/LasPinas/Muntinlupa area can we buy SILICON CASE &other accessories for the cookie?
NEED ANSWERS BADLY. THANKS! SALAMAT!
Why do people keep comparing this phone to phones that cost twice if not three times as much?? Its price is cheap after considering which features to omit - 3g wifi etc.....some find this immposible to comprehend but hey...its a bleeding phone not a lifesaving cure for a terminal illness!!!
Hi, maraming pinoy here I think, hehehe.
Affordable? For me yes, I got it for Php11,500 bundled with the 1 GB external memory. My wife is using it, its my advance valentines gift for her.
Ok naman siya? Ok na ok, 100%.
User friendly? Sobra, 100% on this too.
Responsive or laggy? I'll be straight, yes its a bit laggy on some activities. How laggy??? Very little, its not hard to ignore it. I don't mind it myself. It's like 10% of the lag that I get from my dad's *73 (if you know what I mean).
My wife's cookie came with the 1 GB external memory bundled with it, I think she's fine with the 1 GB considering her previous cellphone was a Samsung U100.
Hi team I just want to find out from you what's the message centre number for the LG KP500 Cookie. The reason I ask is because we are getting more customers asking about this and there's nowhere to find it.Your response would be highly appreciated.If possible you can reply to email@example.com.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The cookie is nice, very nice.
It's a good buy actually; if you disregard the trouble peepz have to go through to update their firm. Fortunately, I didn't have the same problem. So, it was really a good device since I received it.
BTW, to those who provided the games: Thanks. I installed some on my cookie. Very neat.
ching, 23 Jan 2009@maetsuen Azgauth ur lg cookie externel memomry is 8 gig? 4 gig? 2 gig? :pI only use 2gig for it since I only save 3-4 movies and I erase em after watching and I also have 4gig for my k850i
thanks for the info, it really helped me. it is working now. thanks a lot!
ur lg cookie externel memomry is 8 gig? 4 gig? 2 gig? :p
thanks for all the info about the mp4 issue, thanks thakns thanks!!!!!
I have no problem with playing .mp4 video files on my cookie. I download video files from youtube which is in .flv file, after that I convert the files to a .mp4 file at 12 frames per second and 320x240 video size. I hope that helps.
I have not tried uploading a .3gp video file type yet. But when you record a video using the cookie, I think it saves the video on a .3gp file format. So I don't think so there is a problem with .3gp file types.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I got mine from limewire. just dowmload MPEG-4 type of movies... if you cant play the vid, download the installer of youtube downloader. It also converts files to 3gp and iPhone vid specs. I usually convert mine to iPhone vid though its double the size of a 3gp movie
