phone is awesome but youtube videos are taking looooong time what to do ???????????????
What you want to do is known as 'reverse tethering' and it's not possible on android unless the phone is rooted(rooting is not safe as it may brick your phone). You can share your phone's internet to the pc, but not the other way around.
You can connect to the internet by getting a wireless router and do it via wifi.
If you have a wifi card in your computer you can actually turn your computer into a wifi hotspot, provided it is also connected to the internet. But you need windows 7 for that(an application called 'connectify' does that). It can also be done with windows phone. Unfortunately it's a Windows Phone only feature.
You can use your computer to set up a ad hoc network that your phone will connect to. However android doesn't support adhoc so you'll need to have a rooted phone.
There is an App you might try called 'PDANet'. Search the web for it.

Mukul, 09 Jan 2011Hi every one I am on a tight budget but no regrets as Optimus one on fire ;) Still I am conf... moreI also use the creative ep 630 in ear white colored......sound is good but I can't say that which one is better...
Hi folks. My name is Hemanth and I am from bangalore. I have been using this phone since one week. This is really a great phone in this budget.
Here is my detail review
The design is good but not as attractive as Samsung galaxy 3 as samsung mobiles
are stylish, glossy and glittery. But Optimus one looks like a real smart phone
similar to HTC where as samsung galaxy 3 looks like an everyday java phone.
Optimus one is adequately heavy and felt good in hand.
The UI is good but not so great as samsung touch wiz UI. The UI is not customized
more but just a little. But this doesn't matter much. The music player UI is the
default android's player.Google might have done it a little colourful. Every where
in the UI you just see the white text on a black baground. A descent color background
with nice fonts could be more attractive and youthful. I noticed a big problem in the
UI design. The main menu is in a single page where we need to scroll up and down to
start the applications.As we tend to install more and more apps it is little difficult
to navigate the main menu as we have to scroll more up and down to access the icons.
Samsungs UI is little intelligent in this regard. The main menus are accommodated in
multiple pages where we scroll the pages left and right which is easy to acess the apps.
It is LGs responsibility to tweak the the UI to become more convinient
Opitmus one is extremely good in giving good performance. It is really fast, no lagging
or hanging problems. reads the data of SD card very fast.I am using 8GB card with no probs.
Really smooth in the navigation every where. But, as some of the android applications,
automatic updates and services running in the background they consume more memory space and
battery power. It is little painful to kill these background services every time to free
the memory space.The problem is that most of the applications will not have a EXIT option.
It seems that we just minimizes the application but not exiting.It is so fun and amazing
experience while playing games in this mobile.Gaming is simply superb. No lag or hanging
problems at all.
The battery will last for one day on a heavy usage and 1.5 days on a light usage. There is
nothing to blame on LG. It is the android OS which always runs some apps and services in
the backgound that is consuming the battery unnecessarily.Android must do something about
this in 2.3 gingerbread.It is recommended to switch off the bluetooth,GPS,Wifi and GPRS/EDGE.
The display is bright, but the 256K color display made the display colors appear a little
more saturated.Lg would have given 16M color display.It is so enjoyable to watch videos in
3.2 inch display screen.The red color is appearing extra dark in images and videos.
We have to comprimize with the image quality.The 3M pixel camera is just about the size of
the image but not the quality of the image. There are more options and settings to try out
with the camera.The images are good only in day light.Dont expect the quality images in low
light.This is the big downside of this phone
The music output from the speaker is adequatly loud.The headset is crappy.Need to try out
with some other headset. There is more noise in the headset with full volume.It completely
lags the bass.
This is very big advantage for this phone. Data transfer through bluetooth and wifi is
extremely good. The GPS navigation is awesome.The GPS navigation is working perfect.
Internet access is working wonders. The browser is so smooth and loading the web pages fast.
Capable of playing embedded videos in the web(not in the web page itself, the video player
will get opened and streams the video).
The Ndrive, google maps, Navigation which works with GPS are very very good. It is very much
enjoyable to play with google goggles. It scans the images(popular) and tells you what is it.
I always play with google goggles. The android market applicatrion is brilliantly made and easy
to organise the applications installed.Moving the install applications to SD card is a great
advantage.The document reader is slow and needs lot of improvement.The pinch to zoom option works
well. The voice to text input is very brilliant and is working appropriate.
The physical buttons below the screen is good instead of touch sensitive buttons in galaxy 3.
The absence of a dedicated camera button is annoying.No flash and secondary camera.Not so
convinient to install themes.Couldn't apply the image as wallpaper completely without cropping.
Live wallpapers are good but consumes extra power. There are lot of useful applications in
LG Optimus one is a very good phone and worth of buying with in this price range.Lets wait
for gingerbread and see whats new.Google should concentrate more in making the UI more
attractive and colorful like in samsung.Checkout the music player of bada in Samsung wave 2.
The Options and UI of music player is unbeatable by any.Samsung rocks in UI in bada of wave 2.

You can download the software 'calibre' to your computer and then convert the ebooks to the .epub format using that software. Then you can transfer the ebooks to your optimus.

First of all go to settings->SD card and phone storage->uncheck 'Mass storage only' option. Now connect the phone to the PC via USB. A green android bot will appear which will notify you that the USB is connected. Now you have 2 options:
1)Select 'Turn on USB storage' on the phone. The green bot will now turn orange.(Alternatively, you can open the notification bar and press upon 'Select to copy files to/from your computer') Now you can access your memory card through your computer. To disconnect press 'Turn off USB storage' on the phone
2)To connect via PC suite: When the green bot appears, don't select 'turn on usb storage'. Just open PCsuite and select 'connect phone'. Now you will be able to sunchronize your phone with the PC and also be able to update your phone.

A 'youtube' application comes preloaded in the optimus one through which you can view youtube videos.
For streaming videos online, you can use the 'skyfire' browser. You can find it at the android market.

Wi-fi settings: Go to settings->wireless & networks->check the Wi-Fi option,then goto Wi-Fi settings. The available wi-fi networks will be displayed there. Select the network you want to connect to. Make sure that the 'wi-fi' and 'network notification' box are always checked so that you will immediately be made aware of any available wi-fi network in the notification bar. The notification bar also has a wi-fi toggle button which is the first button from left.
GPRS settings:settings->wireless & networks->mobile networks->check the 'data enabled' box->access point names->select the gprs network (for example mobile office in airtel. Make sure that gprs settings are active on your phone. Confirm this from the service provider)Gprs toggle button is the 4th from left in the notification bar.
Note:If you are connected to a wi-fi network and accidently switch on the gprs(data enable),wi-fi will be preferred.Check the gprs or data enable mode only when you cannot connect to a wi-fi network(i.e. it is locked or out of coverage area)

Thanks guys for your prompt response and helping each other using this forum. Good News: I just got to know from ebay seller, who sold 83 phones in a week at Rs. 11500 that he will be listing again at Rs. 11800 starting from this Wednesday, 12th Jan 2011. This time it’s going to be Rs. 300 extra because lot many people complaining LG about this rate difference at compared to normal market. If someone got to know this phone availability lesser than 11.8k then please post the details. As always, highly appreciate your support.
I bought this year this new year, So far not bad. iNTERNET browser very fast.

Good Phone with good features in this price tag,
Though camera is on lower side but we have to compromise with it.
Battery backup is Avg.instead of 1500 maH LG should have provided atleast 1800-2000 Mah.for 3.2" screen.
others manufacturers are giving.
Neck to neck good phones.
No problem while using it.
