I'm really sorry to read about that.

My gx500 runs smoothly, the problem you refer never happened on my mobile.
The speed didn't change after backing up + restoring my contacts.

this phone sucks. once you restore your backup contacts, it will run very very slow in opening contacts which it takes about 5 minutes.

I bought this piece recently and surely it is much better piece than the similar models available in the market.
It is bit slow and you cannot have more themes.
But on the whole it is really a good one.

Hi, I heard GX500 runs on MTK (same platform as Chinese Phones). Is this true?
Can someone tell me what chipset it use. i.e. MT6***. Probably you can figure this out when you connect it USB then the device is recognized by this number.

I think one of the best java phone LG has released so far, decent battery back up as far as touch phone is concerned, good music player, poor earphones, Yes it is slightly slow, but please get it upgraded from LG service station and you can see the upgradation, that too free of cost if you are in warranty period.

Dave, 21 Jan 2011Does this phone support dual standby mode for the 2sim, I m... moreOf course it can!
It is not only dual standby,
but also
dual active
it means that if you're talking on one SIM and someone calls you on the other, you can answer the 2nd call and the person doesn't hear a "phone offline sound").

I'm quite happy with this GX500.
Of course, it isn't a smartphone, so you can't expect multitasking or anything like it, but it does what I need on a secondary phone - calls, sms and mms and a decent battery.

I use it as a free time phone, my main one is the HTC Legend (Android 2.2) and of course it is kinda stupid to compare these two mobiles.
If I didn't need internet access everywhere, fast and reliable mail, .doc and excel editor and at least a 5MP camera for work, I would use this LG GX500 all the time.
