bought this phone in aug-sep, 2011, for 10k, this phone is now very outdated, maybe discontinued, but this is a tough phone, I have dropped it so many times I don't even remember, it has been crushed beneath the leg of a chair with a person sitting on it, this caused a very little damage to the back cover, didn't affected the performance, and it dropped once from my pocket while I was driving (no damage!!), it has been practically thrown, though not with intention, this phone is rock solid... it has a low RAM that is why it hangs so much after few months of usage, with time its performance decreases and it hangs a lot, has a very less internal memory, but it has all the features of a good smartphone, battery life is also good, overall it was a good phone, if not awesome.
Awesome phone... using since December 2010.. Now running KitKat 4.4.2...

How to reduce consumption of battery power in LG P 500 by Cell Radio in standby ?
Please let me know.
ROBUST. SHOCK-PROOF. THE BEST!
This is indeed one of the best model of LG.
December 2011-June 2014 Still working great!
Dropped a few times, but still great! Long battery life. Although compared to latest models, this has smaller RAM and screen.
Because of this, I am now a supporter of LG products. Quality assurance is good. Now, I have recently bought another LG phone. Still expecting high quality! ;-)

My three years old O1 never drop internet signal and you can store most of the apps on SD card and if your phone is rooted you can store almost 90% of the apps in SD card.

Don't know why people keep saying it cant move stuff to the micro sd card. I could move most apps to the micro sd card and videos and pictures were automatically stored in the micro sd card
piece of crap,keeps dropping internet signal needing to restart it to get it going again,keeps running out of storage and can't move anything to sd card,again needing restart to clear storage..waste of money,will never get another
