Anonymous, 05 Dec 2009Someone help me?, i have the viewty and i can't get my internet or FM radio to work, because i... moreplease read your manual. regarding the fm radio, i think you're problem is beacuse you didn't have the headset connected. the phone uses the headset as an antenna and the fm radio will not open unless the headset is connected. sadly, the phone doesn't allow the fm radio sound to be routed to the speakers. with regards to the internet connection, go to the service center of you service provider or network and have them install the access points and settings necessary for internet connection.

I have had this phone for about 18mths now and have found the screen to be qute sensitive, although this is my first touch screen phone. The sound quality for playing mp3's is crap, my partner has a nokia 6280 and the sound quality is way better. thinking now of upgrading to the LG New Chocolate BL40 as it seems to be much better quality all round
Chris, 02 Dec 2009using this phone in US on AT&T (which is my main problem lol), but supposedly im in a 3G area ... morenope you're not doing anything wrong,you just have to go to phone settings and then go to connection settings and select connection settings,the select connection mode and select your frecv.if that option is not available go back one step and select network and click manual and the select your 3g network..
Chris, 02 Dec 2009using this phone in US on AT&T (which is my main problem lol), but supposedly im in a 3G area ... moreare you sure your carrier suport hsdpa 2100 mhz...? cause that s the only frecuency this phone have for 3g...in my country 3g works at 1900 mhz only and that make the phone conect only to edge at 1900mhz
Shakil, 27 Nov 2009Can I use opera mini???As far as i know in other LG mobile it is not easy to use opera miniwith viewty and most other lg phones, you have to install the unsigned version of opera mini, which means it will ask you permission to access the network everytime you open opera mini, also to access the file system when you are downloading a file or saving a page (but in the end the phone will never let you do both), and also ask you to authorize the app to send a message everytime you are putting in texts to a field or form. you have to hack the phone to be able to automatically give permission to basically most actions of opera mini.
using this phone in US on AT&T (which is my main problem lol), but supposedly im in a 3G area and im still only getting the basic EDGE network if at all. am i doing something wrong?

rsalehin, 24 Nov 2009I have heard a lot about its battery life and it seems it is really harsh on that. Also heard ... morethere was some conclusion i have read before that there was some buggy firmware version that had the battery discharging in a few hours from time to time. this is not all the time, but only occassionally. mine lasts for three days with moderate use, and a day and a half with heavy use. my heavy use can be about an hour of video or phone call, three to four hours of internet surfing or chatting on hsdpa, several hours of radio or music, and an hour or two of games or reading documents. i am not a texter, and i only send about two or three a day. my phone is on full hsdpa signal almost anywhere, but sometimes when i use a chat client/app, i just opt to connect on 2g by doing manual search.
i wouldn't recommend the phone for its camera, or at least with the quality of still pictures it takes. my old se k800i is way better although it was only 3.2mp. the video capture of viewty though is very good. but then again there are now phones that can take hd-quality videos.
if you were to ask me if i recommend viewty, i think no. i got myself another phone- samsung omnia, for my day to day use, and my viewty has been relegated to be just a secondary phone. my foremost complaints are the cr@ppy file manager, the moronic idea of not letting two apps or games (or even the music player and an app) running at the same time despite having a multi-task key, and the certificate issues mentioned by some here that doesnt permit installation of signed apps. all of these three issues seem to be a perennial problem with most if not all lg phones.
