I got this phone a week ago and have been fiddling with it ever since. All I can say is that this phone is really good. Of course, there is always room for improvement, but for the relative price among other smart phones, it beats out the others. I would recommend getting an alternative browser to IE Mobile such as SkyFire. Using my home WiFi (23000 down/6000 up), the browsing speeds are extremely quick and as an added bonus, SkyFire is compatible with most if not all Flash applications (such as video streaming) on your phone. The battery life is also rediculous considering the size and weight. This is most likely due to the fact that the phone actually goes into a "turn off standby" when not in use, shutting down the LCD and Godknowswhat. Indeed, the phone IS a fingerprint magnet, but hey, aren't all good looking phones like that these days. The 2.0 mp camera is outstanding for its class. Compared with many other 2 mp's the ks20 really outshines the rest in terms of latency and quality. Some minor cons that I would like to address are the fact that the touchscreen is indeed a TFT touchscreen, meaning its plastic and utilizes a dot-matrix style pressure sensor on the surface on the screen. In English: the display is plastic, not glass as I would recommend (meaning its more likely to get scratched). I find this feature to be important on a touchscreen as its constantly being touched (no way!). There are some proprietary issues that have been complained about, but I find the adapters provided are more than enough. Finally, yes, the sound quality is slightly sharp, but otherwise, this phone is definitely worth every penny. And considering your definitely not going to pay more than the $320 that I did, it's a great deal indeed. Cheers.
To all LG KS20 future buyers....
I have now tested and tried out various PDA phones. I really liked LG KS20, because it is SO stylish (can't beat it), and the specs are very good! (DivX player, wifi, etc).
But sadly, I'm going to have to recommend HTC Touch Cruise over KS20 (ofcourse there are other phones but compared in the similar catagories). Hardware specs are almost identical, but for some reason, Touch Cruise operates so much quicker and smoother. LG KS20 is a BUG magnet. It malfunctions very often. Although you can get used to it, once trying bug free PDA phones, I realised I was trapped in a nut shell....
Big Thumbs up for HTC Cruise. (Iphone would be my next recommendation if ur into web browsing and don't mind being controled by APPLEs limitations + $$$, I personally don't like being limited by manufacturers)

flux, 08 Oct 2008help.. i can't remember my password.. now i can't unlock my phone.. so that means i can't use... moreFor a Hard Reset - Clears out and completely resets LG KS20 - Press & hold send (Call) + volume down buttons and at the same time press the power button (right side of phone) and hold for about 10 seconds. This returns the phone to factory settings.
OnlyPhone, 10 Oct 2008Hi, I'm currently using 6110 navigator.. I want to change my phone, is this phone is a good o... moreits not bad but don't spend over 350 for the phone..i got mine on ebay for 320 and an extra 23 for 8gb memory.
i purchased this phone about 2 weeks ago for about 320 dollars, with an additional $23 for an 8gb memory. the phone is freaking awsome, but nothing comparing to the iphone. i still can't figure out how to get the GPRS to work, but if there is a wireless router around and you are able to get on the internet, Google Maps works just fine. the camera feature are amazing, bot front and back with zoom in - out and editing. you can also find many free applications for the phone for free. to be honest, i wouldn't spend over 350 for this phone, im looking forward until the Sony Xperia, and the Prada 2 come out. the HTC touch pro aren't bad but a bit pricy.
