Anonymous, 05 Jul 2008it's a copy of the lg pradaA copy of the Prada, yes and no. Let us state it is a more powerful Prada. The design looks almost the same, but I think there is nothing wrong on keeping something beautiful as the Prada design alive. Technical however, this phone is far above the Prada. Telling this ia a copy can be considered as correct as long we just look the design, inside the small black box there is nothing that smells as copied.
Can someone help me set up push email. I have set up my email accoun but whenever I click on 'Messages' then 'Email Inbox' then 'Options' and then 'download#', the message appears stating that my passoword or username is invalid.
However, I have tripple checked and yet the problem continues.
I am using a yahoo account by the way
i have tried to check compatibility with GPS navigator but to no avail.

RE - Battery Life
apparently the battery life lasts longer if you turn off the 3G..
change from automatic to GSM 900/1800

Go to, 'Settings', 'Phone Profiles', 'Edit', 'Voice Call Ringtone', then select the sounds folder, then pick whichever folder your mp3 are stored in and select the mp3 you want.
It's the same process for messages.

I also use 8GB mem card ( you lucky I can answer all your questions ) and here the reaction time is very fast. the MP3 player is really good and the screen quality perfect. However as said in the Arena test already, under sunlight you can not read it at all. If you do not want a classic shaped mobile, this is for sure an option. Additional good thing is that the mobile came with desk charger and second battery.
SMS is as on every touch screen mobile slower as on keypad mobiles, but far better than the Prada ( I own the Prada for almost 1 year ). Conclusion can be, yes this is something amazing good, but if you want to sms day and night on high speed..... consider a keypad mobile. I am happy but my sms speed is not that one that will break world records
Someone how owns an f480 or f488, please help me out:
How's the user interface? How's the speed? I've heard that response is really slow... is this true? And If you hook it up with the 8gb micro sd, does it really slow down?
How's texting with the f480/f488? good? bad?
Help!!! I can't stand this anymore.. i want one but it's not here yet! :(
