Summary: It is an older version new phone from LG. I used it mainly for overseas. Just put in the SIM card and it works perfectly. The WIFI feature works good too. It also works with an AT&T card here in the states too.
Summary: I ordered this phone as a replacement and it works like a charm. The shipping was fast and the item description is accurate. I haven't had any problem with this phone. It has a decent battery life and the camera isn't so good, but what can you expect out of a 3MP camera. Wi-Fi is pretty fast, when browsing the internet. Bluetooth works fine, only tested it once. Although, the resistive screen is a bit annoying, since the phone is a bit small, it's harder to press.
Yes it CAN run Gingerbread 2.3.7. Want to know how? Read on. Should have double checked the supported 3G band for AT&T (1900)

Summary: Well, I knew I would be well covered for 2G but I am going to miss out on 3G as this phone only supports 850, 900, and 2100 on 3G (HSDPA). Apparently AT&T uses 1900 for 3G. Oh well, don't need it because I don't have to pay for a data plan. Neener neener AT&T. At any rate, for the price, this is a nifty phone. It's not a Ferrari like the Galaxy II or some higher end phones but it's got some great future potential if you're one for modding and rooting your phone.
Summary: I have a black LG GT540 for a little over 2 weeks now. I spent weeks looking at different cell phones before purchasing this unlocked unit from Amazon for about US$120. My interest was to get a low-cost smartphone that was well supported. To me this phone fits the bill, as it uses the Android operating system with a wide selection of free and paid additional applications available.
Summary: I love this phone. Its very easy to use if you are a first time smartphone user. It has a very good design and doesn't look cheap. The scratch resistant screen isn't as fancy as other phones, but it really gets the job done so its not a big issue. The loud speaker works great-- is powerful, and the call quality is clear on both ends. I highly recommend this phone, I mean for its price works very very well, it does a lot.
Summary: I purchased this phone for my 15 yr old son. I had purchased a Samsung for myself a few weeks prior and he had been bugging me for an Android phone also. I am sorry that I didn't wait. This phone is much nicer and more comfortable to hold. It upgrades nicely to the newer version of Andriod. For a kid that is never happy with anything he LOVES this phone and the price could not be beat.
Summary: This phone does exactly what I wanted it to do: provide me with a way to use an Android phone app on wi-fi so I don't burn up minutes on a SIM card. Yes, the keys are very tiny. And it does have a limited internal memory. But I didn't buy it to use it as a computer - I have a tablet and two computers for that. I just wanted a cheap, unlocked phone that could maybe do a few tricks if I was bored. And this one delivers!
