I bought the phone from an authorized dealer in Canada. I went back to the office thinking I would simply log on to get the owner's manual, since there was none in the box. What frustration. There is no owner's manual!! and it takes several hours on the screen, going through washing machine, TVs etc to discover that there is none. After paying 800$ it is enough to create a nervous breakdown.
I bought the phone two months ago for $550 in New York, what huge mistake it was!!! To list some of the most irritating problems:
1) Exceptionally bad battery life, need recharging twice or three times daily for minimal usage, even with the wifi and bluetooth off.
2) System Hangs up regularly.
3) Skype does not function properly, unable to talk.
4) Wifi signal strength very poor
5) GPRS disconnects too often
6) Screen scratches easily and requires constant cleaning
7) screen a bit too small to use with finger
8) Oh yes and as far as it being a babe magnet; sorry its a no go!
If anyone is listening do not buy this expensive phone. I would give performance a 2!
Anonymous, 16 May 2008just got the phone. Overall, I do not like the sensitive-ness of the touchscreen. Definately n... moreyes, i have the same problem. I have to go to stop the running programs from settings\memory.
I got the phone for a week, and oh boy what a big mistake i made. The biggest problem with the phone is it hang all the time, every time it does, i have to hard reset the phone. which take forever. sometime people call me and it hang before it ring. other then that, Most of the apps and games work nicely if it doesn't hang, and some games will have flicking screen which make it unable to play. (ex. worms world party). The best thing about the phone is it style. anyone that see it will want to play with it. All i can do with this phone is bring it to the club and try to get girls with it. lol

samsung i900 or lg ks20, which one runs wm6 better, and is better quality with little problems?
It is a super excellent PDA phone - it looks good and keeps all my biz documents well.
just got the phone. Overall, I do not like the sensitive-ness of the touchscreen. Definately not as good as the iPhone yet. Yes, it can hang if playing video. Bad part is, do not have quit function for program. Have to go and stop the program from the manager.
I have had this phone for two weeks and my opinion? Never Again!!! I think there R more more more better phones, using of KS20 is a big apocalypse, LG did a big mistake with presenting this model like "superstylephone"
i bought this phone last week and i must say it is better than i expected.
i had 3 years ago a wm phone, a qtek 2020i, the worst phone ever, bought if for 800 euros and sell it for 500 after 1 month.
since then i had n70 and n95, very good phones, especially the n95.
i put on my company microsoft exchange and i need a wm phone to syncronise also task (not possible with symbian phones even with road sync)
- very light, compact design
- good speaking qty
- decent baterry life (considering its big scren, hspda and so on)
- bluetooth is a suprise. both n95 and n70 were working with bmw bluetooth carkit, but without accesing the agenda. on the ks20 is working and i can make phone calls from the car without looking in the agenda
- ie not working too good, blocking, had to change it to opera
- bluetootk is somethimes disconectig when working with my carkit, incoming calls not hearing always. i guess is a imcompatibility. my car has from factory motorola bluetooth
- display hard to use, the iphone has a much better display.
concluding, i am satisfied with this phone. for my need is the best since i do not EVER want to hear about qtek, hts or simlar shitty phones. if you want to use it also for emailing is great. if you want to take pictures, listening to the music or else, take a n95.
however, i am waiting for the experia. :)

Need help concerning the CONTACT list.
I have created a few "CATEGORIES" in the contact list. Later, I realised that the CATEGORIES cannot be deleted even when none of my contact list is in that category. so now I have many CATEGORIES which are empty.
