Anonymous, 28 Nov 2008this phone is imense i sort of wanted to get before but now i really want it especially scince... moreno it's not iphone has 3G it this phone doesnt which makes it more expensive... AT&t quickfire is nicer than iphone and the LG KP500 Cookie
iMadrid, 29 Nov 2008It doesn't say what OS this phone has? Is it LG's Proprietary OS. It only mentioned Java on ... moreYou can use the stylus or your finger to navigate through the phone. So it is a full touch phone. I don't think it has multitouch though, so im guessing one finger input only. Can anyone confirm?
btw loving the features and the price of the phone
It doesn't say what OS this phone has? Is it LG's Proprietary OS. It only mentioned Java on the specs. I guess its only Java games and apps.
Oh BTW its would be Better if Touchscreen Input via Stylus only is mentioned. Apple just raised the bar with Multi-Touch Touchscreen input using no-stylus that non-technical users would be confused.
This LG Cookie IMO is like an early Palm Treo Smartphones. The keyboard only made a debut in the Treo600. You use a stylus to navigate. But with new features added like an Accelorometer feature borrowed from the iPhone. Now I wonder how come Palm is so slow to come out with something like this??

Lg and Samsung never make firmware updates for their phones. You just have to buy the next model. That is why buying Nokia is great, you just update your phone using internet.

I am guessing that LG will release a software patch/upgrade to rectify this. However I am not sure. I bought this phone while in UK last week, and I am currently in India and hence am rather confused about the logistics of getting supported as well. I tried to post an update at the LG site, but was unable to make much progress

Bug 3: Alarm
yes bug confirmed
Bug 4: Sync with outlook
Not confirmed yet
But what the use ,is LG planning to release an updated software patch for KP500
Got the phone a few days back, and it provides a great user experience. However we noted a few bugs, which are detailed below. I would appreciate it if other owners of KP500 try this, and let us know if you also face the same bugs.
I used the calendar widget to enter some appointments and birthdays. However when trying to access a date from the widget calendar to see the appointments, the phone reboots. It shows the LG logo and comes back to main screen.
Bugs 2: Calendar entries:
1 .when I save any appointment either as an anniversary or birthday and set the repeat as annual, it puts around 14 days of additional entries for the same appointment in all the subsequent months - 14 in Jan, 14 in Feb and so on.
2. I then changed the repeat to once and saved it, but that caused the whole appointment to be deleted from the calendar
3. I saved an appointment as repeating weekly and it saved just fine. However if you give an expiration date for the recurring appointment, then the whole appoitnment is deleted from the calendar
Bug 3: Alarm
I have saved a second alarm on my phone. However when the 2nd alarm rings, it shows the name/text from the 1st alarm, which reads Morning Alarm
Bug 4: Syncing with Outlook
I tried to use the sync tools to upload my contact list. I tried to upload from Outlook 2000 on my home computer, and Outlook 2003 in my laptop. It does not work with either. It starts to sync, reads all the contacts in Outlook (around 293 contacts), and then disconnects connection to the phone and provides a message that 'Synchronisation failed', but does not provide any comments/feedback about why it failed
We are still checking out all the features and will post more bugs as we find it. I am however keen to know if anyone else is facing the same problems
