LG KP500 Ringtone, Accessories, Software, Review, Specifications, and Price

LG KP500 is an entry-level touch screen phone that lacked of advanced features and specifications. The LG KP500 phone isn’t created to challenge iPhone or Google G1, but as an alternative choice for budget-conscious consumers who would like to have a low-cost touch-screen phone. The KP500 is equipped with a 3.0-megapixel digital camera, MP3 digital music player, Video player, camcorder, Bluetooth connectivity, and a microSD memory expansion slot that supports up to 8GB of memory upgrade. However, this LG phone doesn’t have Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS navigation system, and DivX and XviD video playback features that you get with LG KC910 Renoir.

I know. I've just got it and it i sooo cool. I recomend this phone to anyone but out of the three networks you can get it on (t mobile, orange and 02) the best is orange because it is the cheapest. qwerty keyboards are the best. i love touchscreens- was going to get the lg viewty but as i am a child that would be very confusing so i got this instead and it is simple ofr a child like me!

Anoymous, are you planning on getting this phone is well?

Has anyone used the browser? it is sub standard. it is very difficult to use the browser. It toggles between portrait and landscape views automatically. sometimes the title bar and navigation bar displays and offs automatically...

otherwise it is a good phone. But as far as the browser is concerned, it is not that good when compared to a basic phone having GPRS facility.

This phone is simple to use, it has a great touchscreen and it is a very stylish phone. As I do not text or phone people very often Tesco Mobile's 'Pay As You Go' service is great for me. My parents got the KP 500 phone for my 11th Birthday, many of my friends have got touchscreen phones since but I still feel that mine is the best!

Oscar picture Oscar

-3 votes Unlock

There is an unlock/lock icon in the widget itself that turns green when it is unlocked. it is right beside the pop out/in arrow of the widget.

-2 votes disabling widgets..if there's such a thing

I've just recently bought the LG 500KP from a friend...she only used it for 3 weeks...she had some applications saved on the widget..how do i get them back into the freakin' widget screen cause I don't want to see her schedule on my main screen..I've already deleted it from the organizer..but it's still on my main screen w/ the radio, clock and music icons that i want to get rid off the main screen. I attempted to do the factory reset but I don't know what the security code is...HELP!!!

Hey, just got the phone myself, you can move the widgets from the main screen back to the widget screen by dragging them back they all must be enabled.
Hope that helps.

You have to click out the side tab and drag those things from the desktop back onto the tab bar. Don't know if you'll understand that. But basically all those widgets drag on and off the desktop. Found that out when I called my #2 speed dial, it keep putting the icon on my home screen. Very annoying. Anyway, I dragged #2 back onto the side tab (make sure you have it out first). Now I just dial 2 and call that speed dial. Now, onto my review of the phone. I love it. I thought writing texts with handwriting recognition was the coolest *hit. For the most part, I love the phone. Can't get the browser to work with AT & T, and I hate the fact that I can't EASILY mod the theme interface. It's like having a sportscar in a color you don't really like...lol Oh well, at some point I will flash all the theme bull to a theme I won't get sick of. Oh, almost forgot, I got the pink, very cute.

Hi. I thought the same, no zoom. But, when I changed size from 3MP to 640 x 480, the zoom bar appeared. Try changing the resolution to something smaller until it appears.
