I Have my LG cookie now for about a week. Touchscreen reacts very good. No reset/shutdown problems so far.
- sound is good
- touchscreen is good and allows for fun handling
- screen quality is good with clears colours
- very light and the size is just right
- price is very good. I paid 140 € on E-bay. don't expect a full smart phone for this price
- Camera is good although I haven't used it very much
- in contact list the phone numbers are not shown and the font is large so you get only a limited amount. scrolling here is very sensitive
- you need to get used to the screen locking all the time but you can't get around this
- data transmission is very slow over the USB cable
- haven't been able to play .avi movies yet
cookie, 05 Jan 2009well the point is, we have released money for this cookie, 10k is 10k my friend. waste of time... moreI see your point my friend. And Im not here to argue. My point is that instead of ranting, let's all help each other in solving this problem. Ü
As I read the opinions here, I can say that my cookie is the worst of all (turns-off automatically almost 4 times a day and resets to its default setting at least twice a day)
So far, I still stick to my sony ericsson k850i cybershot as my primary phone (globe sim) and for me its still the best performing phone in terms of functionality. (awesome cam, astounding sounds, etc)
I only use my cookie as my secondary phone for my sun sim (which most of the time, I only use for calling)
I saved all the contacts and important messages to its sim memory so it wont be affected by the reboot.
For some time, I already got used to its sickness. (I got this fone last dec 26 and its been rebooting and resetting since then) But like all of us, I still want to get what I paid for so Im still hoping and searching for a solution and I know ranting isn't goin to help. Ü And aside from its rebooting problem, I still believe that this fone is one of the best.
I hope you get my point. Chill out friend. Ü

LG means what? Life's Good? or LuGe?
LG is the only brand that i encountered minor reboots and twice reseting to its default setting as of Dec. 19 upto now. this thing never happens to SE, Nokia or Samsung :(
i bought an LG cookie 2 days ago, so far so good, never had any problem and d price is very reasonable, hopefully i will not experience any prob... :P
if i go to phone setting>memory manager>handset common memory> and clicking the system memory, what will happen if i click the clear all? what files would be erased?

Maybe reinstalling the same (non-defective type of) firmware might solve the problem.
i called last week the LG phils in pasig city, they dont have software upgrade yet coz they are still coordinating with LG korea. all they can do is to reset the program of our cookie. i guess its not the answer to our problems (rebooting, returning to default setting, etc.) so at this time, its a waste of gasoline and money if wre going to LG pasig city... we have to wait for the firmware upgrade before going to LG pasig.... (LG)LuGe!
hmmmmppppppppppppppp..... 8z bad that it has no 3g,,its touch screen is great but theres no 3g at alll,,, sad!@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

If you need games for your cookie, you can visit http://www.mylgcookie.com Found some good full touch games. I am now waiting for some motion sensored games.
got my unit brand new, it went into a reset several times already, and one time when the battery was drained it made a buzzing sound i have to take off the batteries to make it stop, and one time i found my phone was off when i turn it on it went into a reset, but so far no major problems,
Azgauth, 04 Jan 2009you are veeeerrryyyyy lucky. The chances of getting a n0n-rebooting cookie is 1:8I honestly can't relate to all your problems, I bought mine in cebu city at 12,600, I never had ant problems with rebooting and static. Its a nice phone.
Azgauth, 04 Jan 2009Me and a friend of mine (who happens to own the same kind of phone and experiences the same pr... moreIndeed..
And may God bless you and your friend on your way to LG Center...
Hope to get news...
Meanwhile I'll contact LG costumer service to "annoy" them and ask when the COOKIE FIRMWARE UPGRADE will be available... =D
Me and a friend of mine (who happens to own the same kind of phone and experiences the same problem...) plans to go to an LG service center this coming week to check if there's still hope left on our poor performing handsets. hehehe! I'll keep you posted guys about any updates.
Anyway, if anyone here who used to have the rebooting LG but managed to fix it by themselves, kindly share us the trick and God will bless you and your family.
Helder M, 04 Jan 2009You cant change the theme but surely you can change the wallpaper. Plus, as you have 2 standby... moreThanks a lot Helder. I'm definitely going for one. I love touchscreen phone. It's fast and the screen is huge make it easier to watch images, vids, and browsing. The price is very reasonable and ignore the camera, it's system is like LG Renor. Great stuffs...
