Hi everyone, recently I just got my hand on this phone. This phone looks nice just with a little problem here and there.
a. When I am doing a mass sms, i went to contact and tried to mark several people, but the phone just restart and my msg that i composed is gone. Happen a few times and guess it need servicing.
b. The clarity of the sound is not too good, quite hollow.
c. It cannot read JAVA script, so some of the friends here who d/l games and that's why u can't play. :o)
d. Regarding the sensitivety of the optical lens, yes, it do help instead of a joystick. U can always turn it off if u think it doesnt help.
Well, thre's good and bads to the phone though.. :)
this phone KT520 has no radio, please update in your file so that people won't be confused. thanks a lot.
AWFUL PHONE - got given 4 of these as a wedding present from Korean relatives - 2 have gone bonkers in 7 weeks. avoid, avoid, avoid - message initializing, shutting down randomly - Will avoid LGs
Had this phone for 3 months now and i have had a lots of problems. Turns it self off / locks up / text mess. reappear after they have been deleted.message initialising ?.Software only works once and then u have to uninstall / reinstall.E-mail addresses have appeared in my contacts list of people i have never heard of.Phone going back tomorrow for repair. Stay well clear.
the battery life dont last as long as i thought..is it the prob of the battry or the phone need too much energy??
does kt520 voice recording has any beep sound when calling or receiving call ?
Of all the slide phones that I've tried, the LG KT520 has one of the most ergonomically designed keypads for text messaging - the designers remembered to put an extra space between the top row of the keypad "1,2,3" on the bottom panel and the top panel. This makes it very easy to type out text messages even using just one hand.
As an engineer myself, I personally feel that the optical finger mouse is an ingenious replacement for the traditional joystick - less moving parts means less mechanical wear and tear, which in turn means longer button life.
The phone can be set to display very large font sizes - a plus point for short-sighted/older users.
Start up time is rather long - just like most LG phones.
The original packaged OS does seem to have some issues with older text messages though. I would recommend that users go and update the phone's OS as soon as possible.
Hey. I've had my KT520 frm 1st Oct 08. Can't say I'm having much technical issues yet, except that the fone keeps disconnecting frm my PC evry sec! (I think it's an issue wit MY PC.) My grouse is that the manual covers all language except English, now that's wat's really bugging me! Can i get a download link for the manual?? Bless up!!!
i bought KT520 n i had problems with it few days after i bought it. message initialising, phone hanging once in awhile, smses that cannot be deleted n worst of all, phone keeps restarting so i had it changed. i got a new phone, n it had the same problems except for the part where it kept restarting. if u want to get a phone, NEVER get this.
hey. this phone has no radio please. i followed the specs given by gsmarena, but my customer rejected the phone cos there is no radio?????!??!?!
I completely agree with RobTheBank. the battery's ALWAYS dead by exactly or less than 24h. & you wont be able t read the msgs you sent/recived more than abt 5 days ago. The phone memo can only hold max 500 contacts which is so limited. & worst of all, after like 2 weeks or so of getting it, it switches off & on by itself & i cant even get to use it.
i have a problem wiv my kt520,mainly about reading memory cards,i put a 512mb micro sd in it it didnt read it,and put a 1gig in it it read it but says memory full,so i formated it still got the problem,can any1 help.
this phone is a load of crap
1. the battery life sucks
2. cant down load the games i play
3. the memory is crap
4. got mine sunday 31.08.2008 and ots going back today 02.09.2008
.... and the battery life for the LG KT520 is incredibly short- one phone call and a couple of texts and it needs recharged.
I have had my LG KT520 for just over a week and it is the worst purchase of a phone I have made. I get a 'message initializing' sign every time I want to access texts that are over a few days in age. The sensitivity of the optical mouse is ridiculous to the extent that it makes this function completely useless. The camera does not have a flash making the quality of images taken in dull light incredibly poor. And now it has developed a fault in that it continuously turns off and restarts every ten seconds. AVOID AT ALL COSTS- it may seem a good buy but you wont be saying that when you have to return it to the shop.
Still getting used to phone, can anyone tell me how to put a stop on the messaging alert sound without silencing the whole phone. Thanks
