Ok, lots of questions, here goes
1) As far as i know the camera noise cannot be turned off, if anyone finds out otherwise please tell me, makes getting embarrassing photos a lot easier.
2)Don't know if the Sky + app works so you might need to ask someone else.
3)You cannot edit the contact sub list. However, you set whether or not it is a mobile number. So you just enter multiple mobile numbers under the same person by pressing the + key at the side of the number box once you have written one. Just played around with it and i have 4 mobile numbers under the same name to make sure it worked.
4)Yes you can open multiple pro grammes at the same time. Top right corner is a symbol that looks like a grid with one box in blue. Thats the task manager, you click on that to choose which one you look at. not sure how many can be opened at the same time though.
5)No music equalizer, sorry. I think this is a poor point as well, but meh ill cope without.
6)You can fast forward video's in a manner of speaking. You just drag the button on the tracking line along. also if you answer a call, the video pauses and resumes afterwards, it doesn't start from the beginning.
7)Yes, third party applications can be installed. However, I'm not sure how many are that good for it yet, as i know Java games work, but they're not the easiest of things to play due to the touchscreen and them being designed for buttoned phones. Personally i would wait for dedicated third party apps.
8)Not sure if the profile changes every time u reinsert the memory card, seeming as you have to remove the battery to get it out anyway. However, i just tried it and it does reset to standard, well thats annoying to say the least.
I think thats all the questions answered lol
1) can the CAMERA noise be turned off?
2) does the SKY+ app jar file work?
Can anybody please answer following queries. Thanks in advance.
1.Whether we can edit the contact sub list. Say instead of "fax" can we put any name. This would be helpful if you have to put various mobiles nos. of same family members.
2.Can we open multiple programmes at a time.
3.Does it have any equaliser for the music player.
4. Can we fast forward the video files while playing it. Also if we get a call while viewing the video does the video restarts from the beginning after the call is over.
5.Can we install any third party applications on this phone.
6.Does the profile changes after every time the memory card removed and re insurted.
I think i have asked so many questions. Please can any one give the answers I will be thankful.sk

Those are some VERY good quality videos. i really want the Viewty now *drools*
I was similar to you, i was looking at the W960 and the P1i as my next phone when i saw this randomly as a sneaky addition to the O2 Website. Hence i did some more research on it, found the review here and followed that up with a test in the shop to know whether i liked the full touchscreen system.
As to regards to what you want it for: Both play music to a good standard, both have cameras, however i will say from using an N95, a K850 and the Ku990 camera, the best picture comes out of the Ku990. Texting and making calls etc are easy with it, especially seeming as you have 4 options in how to input your text message: Handwriting recognition of individual letters, or words, standard mobile key layout or a full qwerty keyboard, which is really easy to use.
As for office documents, i know it can use .PDF files, as i have a full version of Dracula on my phone in PDF format and its nice and easy to read.
As for battery life, According to the LG website, with no other apps running and not doing anything with it at all, the battery should last 454 hours. Ok i kno thats optimistic and the real value is probably about 400-410, but even so the P1i isn't that much more resourceful with battery life anyway.
Personally, after trying the P1i and the KU990, i went for the KU990, but then again thats my choice. your best option would be to have a go on both and see which one you like more before buying it.

Anyone found a case for this phone yet? It says they have one, but I can't find it.
I am about to buy sonyericsson p1i but when i see lg ku990 viewty's awesome touchscreen, now i'm confused which to prefer!
In my opinion, wifi is optional if smartphone already has 3.6 mbps HSDPA. To compare both with regards battery life, i would go for sonyericsson p1i.
Please, guys... help me decide. SE offers more features (except for LG camera which really superb!) but i really fascinated with LG's touchscreen that optionally require the use of stylus (unlike SE which requires often).
I just want a smartphone with fast interconnection, office apps, "finger" touchscreen and longer battery life.
If you decide, which one you prefer?
i want this phone just wondering if it is an all round good phone im not really bothered about internet options or gps or 3g as long as i can text talk listen to music and take a good pic .... so the real question is ......... is this phone the one for me ?
Hi for those who have the phone, can it display chinese or allow chinese character input? I know its euro based, so i'm guessing prob not.
Can you tell me the name of the seller? it will be good to know a seller i can buy from that is safe. thanks
to the comment below:
yes... and you have 3 other ways:
a "qwerty" keyboard or 2 different handwriting recognition : letter per letter or word per word
So when you text, I take it that the letters just appear on the screen like the numbers do in the picture to the left?
I've found neary all the functions are very easy without the stylus apart from web browsing.
Texting no different from non touch screen phones.
The only way people are going to get the phone in the u.s is getting it on ebay from a u.k seller i got my last week for around $600 if you dont want to pay that much it will come out in the u.s the first week on dec.
Got This phone from O2 in the post today, and i only ordered it on Monday. Love the phone and have had only one or two slight problems with it when it hanged slightly for a second or two before doing what i told it to, but other than that nothing realy that bad. And as for thehanging, anything is better than the Nokia N73, had no end of trouble with that having random slowdowns!
Anyway, as to why i am writing here. Although i love the phone, im rather cheesed off that O2 decided to NOT give out the phone with the pre-installed FPS game. As such i only have a crappy demo for Bejewled by EA. Hence my main question is this:
Where can i get games for this phone? also Themes, as i know it should be possible considering you can change them anyway.
Oh how i wish Mobile9 would update to include this phone!
I'm thinking about getting this phone, can anyone tell me if you can use all the functions easily enough (especially texting) on this phone without having to use the pen/stylus?
I find the idea of taking a pen around with the phone a bit of a pain! I currently use the Sony w950 which has the stylus slotting down the side of the phone.
This phone is ok but not great no mp3 player settings,no playing radio through speakers only 3 themes and the fish one looks naff,whos silly idea was it to put a pen on a string?no tv out cable in box not even one on ebay(as far as i can see),the prada gets better accessories, also why use the charger slot for your headphones thats nuts how can you listen to music ect if the battery is getting low and you cant listen to the radio for sure ,more thought was needed on this phone to bring upto even good status.
