The types of messages that you can send and receive with the KP500 are SMS, MMS and e-mail.The phone is able to automatically find the settings for the latter type, at least for the popular services (Google), but we strongly recommend that you read the instructions carefully before giving any confirmation. The first time we overlooked them and we wondered why we could not send an e-mail and...

When you have selected a field for entering text, the QWERTY keyboard can be activated by turning the phone to horizontal position or manually, using the options. We definitely prefer the first method because it is easier. Despite the size of the 3-inch display, the buttons of the QWERTY keyboard look small. In the beginning we made many mistakes and we thought of taking the  stylus out but the T9 correction managed to fix them successfully. With some practice you get used to it, but still, mistakes can occur. We are a little disappointed with the QWERTY keyboard. However, we have almost no remarks about the handwriting recognition. Well, it took us some time to get used to it, but then again, we do not write by hand so often...

For accessing the global network you will have to rely on EDGE, which offers a rather slow speed, taking into consideration today's standards. However, we cannot expect from a relatively budget phone to be equipped with all the latest "features". The browser does not appeal to us much and we can mention the same remarks that we had about the one of the Renoir. Pages are displayed correctly, but navigating through the contents and reaching what we want to look through is not an easy task. Zooming in and out can be done by a slider but the device needs some time in order to respond, which is pretty uncomfortable. There is also an option to do this by holding a finger on the screen, but this method works very illogical and rarely does a good job.

I have purchased this phone about 2 weeks ago, with the price of IDR 2,600,000, or approximately U.S. $ 237. I think this phone is very good especially with the facilities offered with a very affordable price. The Flash User Interface is very interesting and easy to use, it also features touchscreen is very good. Music player is also quite good, unfortunately there is no flash on the camera and the battery capacity is too small for a phone with a screen of that, but in general this phone is very good. Well done again LG!

I'm going to trade off my Sony Ericsson W610i with LG Cookie... I'm looking for budget phones with good sound quality for playing my MP3 collections. Is the sound quality of the Cookie better than w610i? (Or at least the same, considering it's a touch screen phone)
