We, Filipinos, are fighters, hopefuls and risk takers. That is why we fell in line to such event.
What we, who fell in line, were or are pointing @ is the way you/LG managed your consumers/customers in such event.
You/LG should be on top of this. The consumers/customers sensed the Ad before the consumers/customers fell in line. Your name as LG was on the Ad. Even if it is the lack of just somebody or part of the crew of such event, still you/LG(the Big Name on the Ad) should be blamed or questioned. That is the reality/true rule of the world you are moving in.
It is just like a family or organization. If a member made mistake/s or sin/s, then the PARENT or the PRESIDENT must be questioned by the affected factors(or persons — well in our case, CUSTOMERS/CONSUMERS).
In brief rationale, we are looking at you/LG, and you are looking at your staffs or members who worked under or for you.
CUSTOMERS ARE CUSTOMERS.
The event happened was an obvious way of telling that you/LG are more persuader than them(or the other side). Please, LG, do not make us ignorant or stupid. We, who fell in line, are not that naive. We, who fell in line, were really affected. Without customers/consumers, you can not make sales. Even if you say that we should not be there if we know that it will gonna happen(no chance), still we would come for/because again we are fighters(like Manny Pacquiao—who just recently won the Manny Pacquiao & Margarito boxing fight), risk takers(like Charice Pempengco) and hopefuls.
Fighter, risk taker and/or hopeful type of people are the people who live and who knows FREEDOM.
We, who fell in line, were sure buyers. The way you advertise was very obviously deceiving.
In short, your CUSTOMER’S CONVENIENCY skill was very disappointing and unethical in the world of SALES.
I personally fell in line. I was just 2 customers away from the cut off(last buyer of such promo–1 hour only). I even prevented my urine to come out just to get the chance. I started to fall in line at 8am until 3pm(when the 1 hour sale event ended), Philippines time. The host was still announcing that there are more items however he never said the possibilities of the pace of the transaction. The host did not even to manage to announce the difficulty of getting the chance so that we will not be wasting our time waiting. There were thousands of people waiting to get their chance out of 20 items only sold however still the host did not even announce to these thousands of people waiting about the possibilities of not getting the chance. LG, we have believed in you but because of what happened, thousands of people’s LIFE is no GOOD in that time due to broken hopes you were rendering. The host was only announcing that they are the only one who has that kind of event(1 hour sale 50 % off for unlimited–no exact number of such item/s). That is deceiving.
If you want more people but less items, why not do it in Entertainment instead?
Now LG, please confirm/answer this(simple yes or no question):
Were you up to the customer or to the sale?
If customer, then something good(or I shouldn’t be doing this) must have happened.
Else, if sale, then you are not a good example.
In other words, the question is, Sale before Customer or Customer before Sale?
Please answer all the questions LG. I personally beg you. We, who fell in line, were really badly affected.
Aj, 16 Nov 2010Lg has completed there aim of selling 1 million optimus one.Wow!Really??Awesome!!
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2010That's coz you cheated your way up the line. Enjoy your LG phone while you still haven't found... more"Cheated my way up to the line?" If thats how you interpret it. In the promo mechanics it did not mention, "wait for the mall to open and fall in line from there" does it? We just use a little commonsense and better judgement thats all. For those people saying those units are defective, would anyone do that for introductory product? Fine, lets say they are whatever you say they are, what is the 1 year warranty for? By the way the LG Optimus one is in perfect shape and exceeded all my expectation... Not bad for a P6450 phone ;)
I have plan to buy optimus one but I have one question regarding the email application. Is it support microsoft exchange mail?
Please answer me urgently.
[deleted post]ok thanks 4 ur correction as it will help u 4 ur own.
wy dont u show it 2 us just one pix with some Indian sim card notification. what ?????

next time u spell
the lg promo should be alesson to other cellphone maker, next time just say how many units are going to be sold at discpint price and not hold this stupid 1 or 2 hour sale so people will not have to wait for hours only to be told that they won't be able to avail of said promo because they ran out of stocks or time is up. Stupid. Hope this backfire on LG!

LG Will Go Down, 14 Nov 2010LG Fail! LG made one big mistake by hosting an event for a 60% off one hour/one day sale in t... moreYou are stupid for standing inline for 3 hours.LG makes great phones.Just because you had issues now we all must do as you feel is right....Geeeezzzz.Grow up you cannon fodder.
I had this phone for 2 weeks now and must say im impressed!Not only is it fast its easy.Lots of RAM for multi tasking aswell.I would choose this way before i choose a Crapberry!Maybe you Haters must compare it to any crapberry or Samsung Galaxy and see the differance.GSmaarena not always where you find honest reviews or people.
We can't apreciate everybody...LEt's move on...we are victims of marketing strategy..Common sense nmn...the price is to good to be true and only one hour,,use math my friend
all the units 50% off are defective and test units
bad luck to all your units.
i had this phone for around 2 weeks. i like it BUT it experiences Random reboots! Upgrading the firmware does not work. I am definitely not going to use it as an alarm.
