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.
Hello, does anyone know how to switch off the screen touch click sound? Someone advised me to go to profile and put off the touch tone volume but I just realised I have a bit older model- KU990MF and this option is not there :-(
The click sound drives me crazy, does anyone know? Thanks

It's a bit on the large size, but that's what made it look great. The scrolling is really a problem, mainly on the software part. The resistive touchscreen reasonably sensitive, but of course, you cant compared it directly with captive ipod touch; it's 2 different technology. Picture quality still alright, but a bit grainy; would be better with some sharpening. Viewty main strength is its video actually. Hopes this helps!

I have an iPod touch, I'm not thinking about its music quality. As far as I know, it's picture quality rocks.Thinking with a moderate budget, its a best buy, and I'm going to buy it.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2009whats the smaller lens in front where have you been? it is for video calling or for taking picture/video of yourself.

Johnny, 12 Nov 2009this phone does not, or does a very good job at hiding the option to copy or move all (all bei... moresorry, forgot to include this. to delte multiple messages, just go to the folder (inbox/outbox/sent/drafts), then touch the left button for more options. scroll down to see the "mark/unmark" option. after touching it you should see little tick boxes on the top left corner of each message. just tick those message you want to delete, or if you want to delete all just tick the little box on top of the list (whoch should have all the messages checked), then just press the "c" button to delete.

Johnny, 12 Nov 2009this phone does not, or does a very good job at hiding the option to copy or move all (all bei... moreyou're right, johny, lg did a good job at hiding this feature. well, you know, lg is not very good at interface since the beginning. to copy or move contacts, just follow this: go to menu (the button with four dots on the home screen)> the first creen to come up should be the "communications" tab> touch the "contacts" button> go to "settings"> then choose either "copy" or "move"> voila! you should see the option to copy or move from sim to handset/handset to sim, and also "one by one" or "all together".
