asrejestrobasticoldi, 23 May 2009why is my lg kp500 cookie automaticcally turns-off without any r... morethe switch off problem,maybe not because of virus,it happens to me too sometimes but resolved the problem.it is something more practical.i noticed it happens only when the phone is in my pocket.this maybe only, after a call ends the phone goes is in semi lock mode, means display is visible for a few seconds-you can unlock it or it goes to full lock mode until the display backlight is off .so what i do, after each call ends i full unlock it and lock it again-(display off) then put in my pocket.it seems after a call ends the phone is semi lock mode ,so putting it immediately in your pocket can result of switching off accidentally,with your gestures,movement,sitting,crouching etc

hi folks who planning to buy this Phone might help you in taking decision.

1. Touch Phone with Accelerometer:

We can see it
* while composing SMSSMS, if you tilt the phone in vertical position , you get a QWERTY Keyboard(much like ur keyboard style), while helps you quickly compose SMS, either with Stylus r your THUMB(tough for big thumb guys).
* While Playing Videos, if u tilt again in veritical position, you get full screen video. You can play either Mp4 or 3GP Videos.U can also play a WHOLE movie if you wish.
* While Viewing Photos(GALLERY) you can see them full screen in both Horizontal and Vertical position. You can turn on SLIDESHOW or manually go photo by photo using your finger to flip like you flip PHOTO ALBUM ;-).

2. Camera :

* Not bad quality. But if u wanna take photos @ night, u cant expect brighter images coz this Phone has NO FLASH. Moreover if u take pics in dim light the colors will be different shade. Suppose if you take RED color tshirt, it will be shown as PINK color.(Color Blindess ).
* In Day Light , Pics are in very good quality. This phone needs bright light to take snaps.
* Taking Videos is also good enough except it hardly grasps Audio . While playing you cant hear the sound clearly.

3. Downloadable Themes/Games/Wallpapers:

* I know every one color up there mobile, especially if your coming from Nokia or SOny Ericsson modes, but here is BAD NEWS, you CANT DOWNLOAD THEMES, R&D Process going for the same.
* You can Download Wallpapers and can apply them.And also supports GIF animated wallpapers
*You Can download Games via WAP from LG Website or you can download them from Internet. There are no full accelerometer supported games online YET.
* Phone comes with default games which have Dices game using Shake Control.(Love this game).

4.Memory Card Support:
* Phone supports 8GB, as Per GSM Arena,they say 16GB Card is supported.But i heard from other forums that phone with 16GB is performing slowly, You cant expect it run like 8GB card.
* Better go with 8GB. I guess that should be more than enough.

5.PC Connectivity:
* Phone supports connectivity to PC via USB or Bluetooth. Transfering music files and videos are thunder speed from PC to Phone Via USB.
* You can take entire backup of your Phone or Memory Card.
* Can Sync Music via LG PC SUite just like Ipod.
* Can Sync Contacts.
* Has Mass Storage Support Via USB.Which is fastest way to copy files onto your phone.

6: Touch Sensitivity:
* Very responsive.
* Very Userfriendly. ( Even your kid can operate it , So beware)

7. Reliablity:
*Perfect value for your money.
*Has all featurs one needed for current generation needs like WAP, FM Radio, Music Player,Bluetooth with ADP Support. etc

8. Durability:
* I just dropped phone once accidentally while i slipped on my stair case while i was on call, there is no damage happen to phone. and my friend was still ON CALL :D .
* Appreciate LG is quite durable . But have to be really carefull coz we cant be lucky all times ;-). I felt as if I just slipped my heart.

* I have to give 5/5 Rating for this phone.
* For me im geting nearly 4Days battery backup. Irrespstive of watching videos, listening to Music. and Talktime.
*Need to decrease dispaly brightness to 40%.
* change the touch setting alert to NONE.

10. Quality Of Speaker.
* Very LOUD. There is no SEPARATE SPEAKER.Used Ear Piece as SPEAKER too, so the quality of speaker is not upto the mark.
* Headphones came with handset are very good. Nice beat.Not ear bud type. Much like Normal Flat ear phones.

* NO FLASH for Camera. So night photography is worst quality.
* Not much good quality Speaker phone.
* No downlodable themes as of now
* No accelerator games in market except the ones came with phone.

I hope this helps someone taking in a decision.Any more questions drop in and will try to reply asap.

Karen, 24 May 2009Hey umm is the speaker good? i mean like most LG sound system is... moreYou menttion that the use of your finger is impossible when messaging and so on, recolabrating your toucpad, i first set mine up with the stylus and it was ok but when i just used my finger it was alot better.

the idea of the phone locking itself is so that when your on a call you dont bump the buttons, i know it may make some things longer to do, but its their to stop even more annoying things from happening.

pros: QWERTY keyboard, accelerometer, take a 16GB card, 3" touchscreen, high speaker volume, simple and easy to navigate through the menu, has two interfaces, and some things the iphone will never have, bluetooth and easy removal of battery.

The only thing i wish it had was 3.5mm audio jack (no big loss there are other ways around this)
