I think it's the same as Optimus One P500, except is functions on different frequecies for 3G. (T mobile uses AWS which is 1700/2100. Standard Optimus One is 900/2100. I believe in Canada, Telus has an Optimus One version which uses 850/1900). Makes it confusing to figure out whether a foreign unlocked phone will work on a local network.
I really like this phone. I did not at first, but the first one they sent me was defective. Now I have my second one and I really like it. It is not too complicated.
Do not buy this phone, the touch screen sensitivity is horrible,it lags once you have 2+ apps open and the swype system is really bad at guessing your words
As far as LG website is concerned, it doesn't exist. Been trying to find a full manual, "too big to send", was what I got from T-Mobile. Still learning how to navigate, don't want to call tech support, again. Stuck and not happy about it.
Like the optimus t...only downfall I see is that I cant support adobe flash player...
what doing lg with t and1 p500 same feature t have upgradable tp to 2.3...
I wanted to wait until I had this phone for a while before putting in my 2 cents. Three months into owning it, I am on my second one. There are some issues with freezing and rebooting even after swapping out SD cards. It isn't frequent enough for me to abandon an otherwise decent phone, but it is annoying. The Optimus T's pros: low cost, decent browsing experience despite its lack of flash support, call quality is really good, display is rather nice for a budget phone and the overall feel of the phone is good.
Now the cons: Mediocre battery life, a slight but noticible lag, lack of flash support, a mere 170 MB of internal storage and the afore mentioned freezing/rebooting issue.
Overall not a bad phone for the entry-level smartphone user on a budget. If you're used to higher end smartphones, though, it can be frustrating to use. I'm, for the most part, happy with mine.
The cons: Mediocre battery life, a slight but noticable
Great Phone for the first time adnroid user.
I got mine for the 18 dollar upgreade fee. Like the phone.

Shane, 29 Dec 2010I wanted to know how the features are and wat about tmobileThe features of android are great but lets wait and c what new features android 2.3 would bring.
With T-mobile, everything is good, l can't complain.
Is this upgradable to android 2.3 and future versions of android?
Its a nice phone got it 4 free! With a 2 year contract with Tmobile.
How much does it sell 4 without a contract + without d Tmobile customization is a good question.
Is there any difference between Optimus T and Optimus One , except the T-mob UI cuztomizations, if there are any?
