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.
I do not know how to send songs from the lg optimus p500 to other phones by bleutooth.Can you tell me how?
pls how can i use the phone to my computer,is like the phone software is not surported to the computer?
Such a bad, slow, and very 'dumb' phone. It is so useless when it comes to storage. I've had this phone for just over a year and after about 8 months, my texts started screwing up. Either the phone couldn't send texts, or it couldn't receive texts. (It was the phone, not my network ) What's even worse is that the phone would play up like that for up to 2 weeks. It never fixed over night. (I didn't drop it or anything ) I hated that phone with a passion so I got rid of it. There was no point selling it as no one would buy that useless phone.. It ended up in the bin. Seriously it is so bad.
i am using optimus one for more than one year.... it is a good phone to use, ignoring some little little problems......now i am using 2.3... how can i upgrade to its latest version.. pls rplyy

After using this phone for 2 weeks, I've decided it's useless. There's just not enough memory. Sick of seeing the low on storage icon popping up all the time. I'm getting rid of it.
these roms, made by some developers are very sexy and neat and smooth. but not 100% perfect. they have defects, as ics and jb are not supported officially and as p500 wont have complete requirements to be in such latest roms. GB roms are only trustworthy, like cyanogenmod7 and such "gb" made by the xda devs.
kunle, 27 Nov 2012what does mean to 'root' a phone and how? Rooting the phone annulls your warranty as its a sort of illegal activity,and should be avoided it can also damage your phone permanently.
@ndres, 21 Nov 20121) root your phone
2) install Link2SD
3) Link Apps 2 SDhow to root my optimus p500 pls tell me...
This phone is a lemon. Has hardly any internal memory and as most apps seem to have the requirement to run on internal memory - there is no point downloading apps. Or sending txt either. I have deleted pretty much all of the apps I downloaded (all 5 of them), I have cleared all the caches, I have deleted most of my stored txt and this lemon still tells me I am low on storage.
I contacted LG Support and he told me to do all of the things I have already done, then said there is not anything else that can be done.
Don't buy this phone.
