i think everyone has an opinion to this phone. personally, i ADORE it even with its disadvantages. so ill just list some of the things that you ought to know if you wish to purchase this phone soon.
- its cheap man!
- it looks really cute and it is very compatible with your hand, like it has a nice feel to it.
- the keyboard is so fun to use although the buttons are quite small so if you have big fingers then it might be a problem.
- its only touch screen for dialling.
- you can view messages in a thread view, like in speech bubbles. i LOVE that.
- i have had a few problems with it suddenly turning off but all phones do this now and again. dont get mad at it.
- sometimes it is slow so use it with care.
- camera is really clear.
- my video camera doesnt really work, but it might just be my phone.
- sound is great.
yeah theres a lot more stuff about it but if you are looking for a phone and youre not really bothered about it being SOOOO great then this is definitely the phone for you:)
oh, and pick red!! its hot :)
i'm so dying to get this phone [ i'm kinda being sarcastic ] but when me and my BFF read the comments we we're thinking if we should get this phone or not. Up 'till now we're still thinking.. But i don't get it when they that it's horrible, because maybe they just used it in a wrong way. If ur gonna buy this type of phone then you better take good care of it so that nothing BAD will happen to it. GET IT ?. common sense please

and a friend thought she fixed it but when I rang the phone I got the standard recorded message not my husband's voice mail. can you please help, any advice
would be appreciated.
If the phone is so bad why do people rave about how good they really are. I have one coming on wednesday and I cant wait. I have a nokia 6300 at the moment and the lg sounds like it does and can do alot more.I have read the reviews written and really it sounds to me that all the complaints were because you wanted to write something bad.

the reason i do not like this phone is becoz it is designed as a texting phone, but when you write really large texts, it goes unbelievably slow!! like 1 letter per 2 seconds.. i know that lg is known for this, but this phone is specifically designed for texting, and for me all it has done is make texting slower. also the placement of the second fucntion arrow keys are really badly placed. because of the lag while texting, if you press 'K,L,O or M' too early it thinks you are using the directional keys not the letters. so you end up with a jumbled up message if you arent watching carefully. i dont recommend this phone if you are buying it in hopes that your texting experience will be better. because it wont be.
people are sayin it frezzes, its rubbish,blah blah blah...well,my opinion is is that it'snot the make, it's that specific phone you've got. so dontmake the whole phone lookbad..ok?!
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2009can someone tell me where to buy this phone in red and black pleasewe 3 in the ccg webshow all bought the black one....not in red for a while:( but it works great
this phone works really great on me...it doesn't gve me any trouble at all...im using this phone for almost a year n im happy wif it..i thnk d lfe span of a phone is depend on d wy of d owner's took cre of it...
wen i first saw dis fone i was like WOW! so cute! i have 2 get it! d features were jus wat i was lookin for.. nuthin 2 fancy.
i bought it like 5 months ago..and it was fine.. froze a little.. nuthin major.. n den a week ago d display started blinkin.. and now.. i pretty much cant see squat.. d display is gone.. n i have 2 pay 2 replace sum strip between d keyboard n d screen.
This has to be the worst phone I have ever had. The memory is far too small even with an SD card inserted (which it is hard to get files from). Once I get to around 300kb on the internet,I get the message ` memory full`. The phone then disconnects and then reboots itself.The sound quality from the earpiece is aweful. I could go on but wont.All this after just TWO WEEKS !! I am swapping it for a Samsung.

I got a contract where i ... morethank you people 4 ur honest specifications coz i was close to buying one myself but then decided to go with nokia 5130,its got better features and faster internet browsing and more on board memory.
i have lg kp500 cookie.
but i think this phone is quite nice.
so do u guys think i should change to this phone or just stick with my kp500?tq
It was working fine for about a week after I got it and then after I turned it on one day, it cannot receive any signal and I had to pay to fix it...after purchasing just for a week.

So I can't say that what you people are saying is true...
DO not get this phone. it turns itself off and freezes all the time. also freezes most times a call is made
They are terrible! Stay clear...go for a samsung rather, they last. I got a contract where i got two of them and they are both doing the same thing (turn off by themselves so you loose calls, the camera is green on the one phone, regularly during calls i cant hear them and they cant hear me and it sounds like the other person is not speaking into the phone) I will never get an LG phone again!!
i sooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! want to gaet one are they good?
I bought this phone right away when i first saw it... i thought it was a wrong pick but now, I am getting satisfied with this phone. Style And features: Check! but Performance, not the best..But i can live with it. like others said, Don't expect A Ferrari performance for A low cost Money! just enjoy
