I have this phone for 2 years ... and still running smooth...got jelly bean install which is running flawless ... I'm having fun with Google now,though voice recognition not supported,. not a deal breaker :)
you gotta be kidding. I used P500 for 2 years now. It is rugged, works almost perfectly for phone, music, text, bluetooth. True value for money. That is why I think twice about getting a new phone this December.
Very Gud Budget phone in 2010. But now many new phones with more features came even more cheaper than this phone. I bought it 2 yrs before. Now I couldnt upgrade it to v4.04

I would recommend a phone with over 1GB internal storage.

sam, 27 Nov 2012hey try oxygen ICS 4.0.4....m using it...it really awesome...Sam,
From where you got ICs 4.04
I bought a second hand of this device, but when b I check the battery it drains so fast. So i read some comments here that when you update its software it will solve some problems including battery drains fast. So i search some instructions in the net how to update and I tried it. The result is great no problem it still runs smooth and the battery not drain fast anymore. Before it is running on android 2.2 now its android 2.3.4.

Given when it was released and the price this phone has amazing specs and a HUGE community (still!) providing custom firmware (CyanogenMod, AOSP, AOKP, etc) and support.
Known to fans as the "Legendary O1", even with its last-gen ARM6 processor (safely overclockable to 729MHz or even 748MHz) I've been running Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) for months without major problems and plan on upgrading to 4.2 once it comes out.
Although the memory is expandable with a MicroSD card, the internal storage of just a few hundred MB is really what's holding this phone back at this point, especially since this phone has a cheapish SD card slot and has experienced the "SD Card Unexpectedly Removed" bug.
Still, absolutely no regrets buying this phone, I went budget and ended up with, I think, the best ARM6 phone there was.
