from PHILS.. could anyone call LG about this?
i had txted a dealer from whom i got this phone..
he said that i should set my primary storage and camera storage to "EXTERNAL MEMORY" i had also formatted my memord card (4GB)via phone.. when i had got this set. i had no experience of REBOOTING or RESETING. its 2 days from now when i got this settings on. but i don't know if this would be the exact solution for the problems of rebooting. still experimenting.
Out Topic: LG cookie indeed is a winner for:
features in ratio of its affordability.

I dont find any problem in rebooting, as long as it doesnt delete my inbox and contacts. I already transfered my contacts to my sim. Its just that the reboot thing can get very very annoying sometimes...
aside from its rebooting problem, I love it. I have no plans of replacing it (so far) as long as the problem can be fixed....
did anyone here from the philippines already called LG about the problem?

TO ALL OF US! DO NOT BUY ANY LG PHONES ESPECIALLY COOKIE! TRUST ME! I DONT WANT YOU TO SUFFER LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970do not get any LG phones! its a low end phone even their high end is low end, and the battery lasts for 1 1/2 days only even your not using any cameras and videos etc..... and it reboots now and then! really not a good brand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
amanda, 19 Dec 2008Does anybody know how to turn off the shutter aound of LG KP500 cookie?
Thanks!Can anyone please tell me how do i turn off the shutter sound on the LG KP500?
The phone is useless..without 3G and Wifi... it's centuries old.. The Motorokr E6 is lower priced and far better except fr the camera
btw ,, the camra does hav lines all over it but its a good camra and when u take the pic the lines sorter go . Also ,, u got to think u aint paying loads so u aint gonna get it perfect !
Heyy!, i havent had 1 problem with mine yet , i think its amazing all the features and that !!!
I bought the lg cookie when i 1st got it i thought it was amazimg but after a couple of days everything started messing up i had to get a replacment cause the fone stopped working then when i got a new one it kept on reseting itselve and i lost some my stuff that i had on the fone my advice dont get the lg cookie its crap!
my fone often reboots itself too. It says "sim card removed. pls insert simcard and turn on fone" for a while, it only reboots but the settings stay. just a while ago, it rebooted again and returned to its default setting erasing all messages and contacts saved to in the fone memory. I believe this is only a firmware defect. mine is _v10c but ive heard somewhere that there is already _v10e. I have it for 3 days now.
just wanna ask WHERE CAN I GET OR DOWNLOAD THE LATEST FIRMWARE SO I CAN INSTALL IT TO MY FONE?
hoping for a reply. Tnx! btw! im from the philippines
Thanks for reviewing my uuhh... review! For any questions about the review, the phone or the price in the Philippines, please contact me at:
It is excellent mobile...............
but it is missing the feature WIFI it is the only draw back..........
Here is my official review and POV for the LG KP500. Read this to understand before you buy the phone. :)
The LG cookie took me by surprise when I first touched it. The plastic case was hard and it did not feel like plastic at all. To be honest, I dropped it the next day by accident and it didn't have a SINGLE damage. And yeah, I saw it bounce. haha. Anyway, in the box, there is a CD-ROM, a USB, the Phone, Charger, a Manual and earpiece.
External memory is great. I mean, you can upgrade until 8gb. But I bought the 4gb, and I filled it up. To my shock it only used 1/8 of the memory. Yeah, the phone doesn't use much so I was pleased I didn't pool much money for the 8gb.
The earpiece works brilliantly! I have never felt such a comfortable piece since the Treo earpieces. :D If you like music loud, the speakers of the phone are clear and crisp. You can change the EQ too, which is nice since some songs sound really weird. haha.
The battery has good performance. It lasts with me for two days even with heavy usage. I love tinkering with the phone since it's screen is very responsive. The usual annoyance for people is that it locks itself. Don't worry, you can fix that in the settings.
The stylus is pretty small which can very much irritate those with big hands. But it'd good for me.
The phone also comes with an LCD protector film. But it does not affect the sensitivity of the screen. It says though in the manual that it affects it. SO if you take the film off, it would be higly-sensitive. I don't recommend it, though since I haven't tested if the screen is vulnerable to scratches. I do know, however, that the screen itself is not a finger-print magnet. The film protector is, though.
The camera is really weak. I actually don't use it much since it's poor compared to my old phones, and they CLAIM it's 3mp. What I love about the camera is that it's fully customizable. It's fun and you can draw on your pics.
People compare it a LOT to the iPhone, but DON'T. I have the iPhone too, and to be honest, I really like using the Cookie better. The iPhone is slow, and sometimes it lags. Also, you can't really do much since it does not come with games. The song thing is pretty good, though. I have the 160gb version.
Speaking of games, you would love the games here. It's very nice since it works a lot like the DS. It uses a lot of functions like shaking the phone, the touch screen blah blah.
1.It charges through USB. It's great! Such a pleasant surprise.
2. The LCD is quite responsive.
3. Games are the best, and you can download too.
4. It reads files.Except, my PDF files didn't work.
5. The drawing tool.
6. Thin and sexy exterior. Perfect for guys and girls too. :)
7. Screen is bright and dazzling.
8. YOU WOULD LOVE IT. The list is too long for me to continue.
1. No wifi obviously. >.>
2. Camera is a little odd.
3. Slow acrive UI response.
4. Protective film is a finger print magnet.
5. Stylus is small, but it's okay since it's not used much unless you go OWERTY mode.
The phone managed to read my PDF files (aka, ebooks), and it's easy to read but it will strain your eyes especially if the font is complicated.
The KP500's Active UI managed to get me pissed yet again. The QWERTY (or QWERTZ in the fone) is slow like the Gallery. Sometimes you have to press the lock key to make it work, but thats only a minor problem.
One major problem is that my phone rebooted itself once. I think its because of the usuage. The phone heats itself especially if you are multitasking on the phone. But that was only once. Please, if your phone reboots itself more than once a week, get it checked.
For any questions on the review, and Philippine prices, please email me at:
I will answer ASAP. Of you want to reply here, dont expect too early, but I will try my best to reply. I will not answer useless questions. TNX.

zstsc, 26 Dec 2008REBOOTING PROBLEMS:
i got this phone for about 2 days..
so far it REBOOTED 2 times already... moreso far my phone has only rebooted for once. I think yours has a problem... Go and get one in replacement.
@brix: Dude, you can get yours at Cyberzone. It's 11,900 php. But go to Topwin and ask for a 11,500 php model. At least, that's what I did. It's a matter of haggling.

Everyone, you can download great games at:
I suggest you get the Happy Tree Friends games... They are so fun and clear in the KP500. :)
