camicat, 07 Jan 2011Hi! we have same problem, i just bought my phone last november and its says in my notifacition... moreHi,
The unmounting problem is not a software or a hardware problem, it's really the sdcard.
If it was software: it would probably be fixed with the update to 2.2.1 & it wouldn't be fixed with another sdcard.
If it was hardware: it wouldn't be fixed with another sdcard nor 2.2.1 update.
If it was the sdcard itself: it wouldn't be fixed with 2.2.1 and would be fixed with another sdcard. (this is what happens)
Most people i guess are buying the class 4 sd cards whereas I have been told that our optimus one is compatible with class 10 sd cards. Even class 6 sd cards are running smoothly. So it's better to purchase a class 6,8 or 10 sd cards. I use an 8gb sandisk sd card and it runs flawlessly.

Garuda, 07 Jan 2011Thanks for your advice. Could you please tell me how can i update the firm ware ? Please provi... moreHi,
Connect the phone to your computer via USB (Before that make sure that the 'mass storage only' mode is unchecked in the phone's settings). Open PC suite->check phone update. Follow the steps as displayed on the screen. First the LG mobile updater will be downloaded. Subsequently, the updates will be downloaded. Just make sure that you don't shut down your phone or escape the update program when the actual update is running otherwise you may lose even the current operating system software. Don't get worried when the phone goes to emergency mode or reboots while updation because it is part of the updating procedure. It will take some time to download the updates. Just have a little patience.

All the apps cannot be moved to sd com card but someday here wrote ... moreHi,
I only wrote that almost every app has its alternative except for games. You can visit the site 'appbrain' and turn on the 'app2sd' filter. You can easily find what you want according to what you type either by relevancy or rating or popularity.
When you delete an app, there remain no traces of that app on the phone memory. The additional data which is stored in certain applications can be found in the external memory card in the form of folders and files. You can even verify this by installing the application 'app2sd' which shows the total phone memory as well as the phone memory available.

Anonymous, 06 Jan 2011I am stuck between samsung galaxy 3 and lg optimus one P500 ... pls help me decide which is better??Lg optimus one is my choice in between the two. Specs are same on both the phone. Samsung is a bit cheaper. Optimus one is with froyo athough samsung galaxy star is also upgradable. Both phone are just the same in all respect. The diff is on the looks which is beter in lg optimus in my view..
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2011I am stuck between samsung galaxy 3 and lg optimus one P500 ... pls help me decide which is better??I have a friend using Galaxy 3.. and I bought an Optimus One 20 days back. it’s really better than galaxy 3 by means of battery backup (really good for a Smartphone) and look wise its really nice. RAM is higher than Galaxy 3, LG has informed there may be an update to Gingerbread. Galaxy 3 is a finger print magnet. You can’t keep the panel of a galaxy 3 clean. But the LG P500 has super build quality and finish. It’s not very sleek, but not too huge too. It fits well in your hand. I had no problems using it as a Smartphone (I mean wifi browsing everything is cool…) Now after having installed around 20 apps on the phone in addition to the existing 20 apps. I feel no difference in its performance. When it comes to Galaxy 3 or P500. I vote for Optimus.
I want to ask one thing
All the apps cannot be moved to sd com card but someday here wrote that all the apps which can't be moved to sd card also have alternate apps doing the same function with a different name in the market, so pls tell me if there is any site to check this?
Second question is if we uninstall an app from phone memory and clear the data, so is there any kb or mb still left on the phone memory??
Charlon Calumpiano, 06 Jan 2011i really want and eyeing this phone to buy for almost three weeks, can anyone help me decide. ... morethe sd card problem isn't too serious, if you use class 10 or even 6 it works smoothly.
Go for it ,it is best.

neo, 07 Jan 2011how is the battery life when using inernet???I have done tethering a number of times on my lg optimus...............those of you who intend to use it as an lone source to connect to the internet...then I don't advice up this cause its not god for the phones battery in the longer run.....
When you tether the phone connected to the USB a and out keeps on charging but the charging rate isn't as effective as a wall charger.......
Tethering isgood in its experience for browsing web etc....but not for downloading large files like movies from torrent...
Garuda, 07 Jan 2011Hi All,
Could anyone please tell me how i can upgrade Android 2.2 to Android 2.3(Ginger bread) ?Hi,
Gingerbread update for the optimus one hasn't arrived yet. As far as my knowledge goes, it will probably arrive in February. But you can update your current firmware to 2.2.1(to version v10c) by connecting to PC suite.
