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.

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.

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...
You can check specs below...(Proprietary connector)

Looks like Cookie reboot problem is everywhere.
See other related thread..
some have version V10e that may have fix the problem.
I hope LG will do some actions and inform us for any firmware update.
I have tried Azgaugh tips but still reboots even in standby mode. My Black cookie version is V10c, 11 days old bought at sm megamall. (5x reboot)
Overall, this fone still rocks and my kids love the touchfone features.
I will still give LG a chance to provide a firmware update and fix this bug.
To those who are planning to bring thier Cookie to LG customer service, pls. share the information and news they have to this site.
How about LG Renoir? Do they have reboot issue?
Happy New Year! I just bought LG Cookie KP500 mail order,and am eager to get my hands on it. I have been trying to find out what kind of headset it has or uses. For some reason, I can't find that info in any of the specs on any of the related sites. I has a headphone ("earbuds"), right? Is the jack standard 3.5 or proprietary?
Thanks for any info.

Plus, as you have 2 standby screens (one for the widgets and another for fast dialing) you can add different wallpapers to those different screens...
Besides that, you may also change the menu view and have it on "classic" mode and on "navigation" mode (though the theme is still the same)
Really, it's not that boring...
and my cookie only rebooted 3 times in more than 2 weeks...
it's just a great phone!
Hi guys, i heard that it doesn't have any themes. Is that true? That means it cannot change any color of the screen and that's kind of boring for sometimes. Don't you think? Anyone who has this phone can you confirm about this please coz i'm planning to buy one.
just want to ask to anyone who has this phone the ff: before i buy this phone so that i wont regret.
1.) can you change the sms tone ?
2.) is there any site that i can download some applications?
thank you in advance :)
I bought a LG KP500 Cookie last December 26, 2009 at SM MOA at 11,500. It only reset/restart when i'm charging the fone but only once. The battery last only 12hours at most and the latest problem I encountered today is when the battery died then after an hour I started hearing static sound on the phone even though there is no power because the battery is already empty. It only stop when I remove the battery. Any one experience this kind of problem? I will go to LG Pasig service center to fix this bullshit..
