A nice price with nice usage

Joycc, Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this phone during Thanksgiving break. After I started using it, it is a pretty good android however there are several problems that exist: 1. Too little internal storage space--> Because this phone is running android 1.6, therefore ALL the apps need to be stored in the phone storage. I only have about 15-20 apps, and that's it... I wanted more, but if I want more apps, I need to update to at least android 2.2 in order to put my apps in SD card. 2.

LG optimus GT540 unlocked

Mayra, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: The item says unlocked but buyers beware that you will have to pay $50 t0 $80 to have it activated. So they price of the phone goes up. And if your not in the UK you can't use the android market whic was a waste of money because basically u can only call receive calls (once the phone is unlocked) send messages no games no apps and you can navigate with wifi

Don't upgrade!

Sebastian, Amazon
9 September 2011
  • Summary: The language can be set to spanish. Couldn't upgrade to Android 2.1. Phone died in the process. LG says that this phone is upgradable to Android 2.1. Their software to upgrade it didn't succeeded a few times, the last one it crashed while the phone was in "emergency mode", i.e. the mode to upgrade the firmware, in which the phone doesn't respond to any touch, button, etc.

Good device, bad support

Whytheman, Amazon
28 August 2011
  • Summary: Ordered this phone with warranty from BLUTEKUSA and they have the worst customer service. Called them up and I was stuck leaving my name and phone number at voicemail. It has already been a week and they haven't responded yet. The phone is great, it already comes with the 2.1 update and it works wonders.

Good Phone - but not on AT&T

PABUK, Amazon
18 July 2011
  • Summary: I really like this phone - it came with Android 2.1 rather than 1.6 and works really well. Unfortunately it can't access the internet via the AT&T network (it works fine through a wifi connection). AT&T say its not a supported phone and they can't set it up. We tried several times with different support people and even spoke to LG. This kinda makes it difficult to use it as a smart phone. Also it will apparently only work at 2G on AT&T.

Not for everyone

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 March 2011
  • Summary: I've had one other android based phone, the G1, and these are the major differences: The notification bar is harder to use, probably due to the small er screen size. I have to use my fingernail to select it. On the plus side, the notification bar has button to quickly turn on.off GPS, wi-fi, etc. The MS Exchange setup actually worked quite well. On the G1 it didn't work and I had to use a third-party app. The haptic feedback is both nice and annoying.

Nice phone but couldn't get it to update

NeoStar9, Amazon
5 January 2011
  • Summary: The phone overall was very nice. Didn't weight much and the touch screen was responsive. The Android OS ran well. I liked it overall. It being unlocked and cheap along with the Android OS made it a good buy I thought at the time. The problem I had was that while the features were nice I could not get the phone to update via the official tools. Others had this problem all over the world with this particular phone.

  • Summary: Is having to charge the battery twice a day when most of the apps are turned off acceptable ? Allthough they sent me a new battery , i should have had to ask for another.
