LG Xenon GR500 Review

Building upon the success of the Vu, the LG Xenon GR500 tries to take it to another level by offering a QWERTY and updated interface. All the while, it retains similar dimensions to make it a compact device without adding too much bulk to its frame.

wow... it said that since it has 320 x 240 resolution for video, its good for Multi Media Messages (MMS) but when i try to send a text message with a video with that resolution, it says "Video resolution is too large to insert" and the video is like 10 seconds,,, i miss my old phone.....

This phone is terrible. Got a new one in Jan 2010 and by Sept the touch screen no longer worked - only 9 months old. Took it in and they replaced it with another brand new one, and 8 months later the touch screen again is broken. Would definitely NOT recommend this item. Seems to be some sort of defect with the screen.

VIDEO & PICTURE MESSAGING SOLVED- i was having trouble with sending pictures and videos because most phones could not receive it since the images or videos were too big . whenever i tried sending any video it would say 'video resolution too large to insert' . if youre sending a picture text , all you do is : go to camera , click the settings button at the bottom before you take any pictures . click Image Size and make it the smallest one ( which is 320x240 ) and others will be able to receive it . if youre sending a video , go to the video camera, again click settings at the bottom , click Video Size then click the smallest which is 176x144 , since the video resolution is too large to insert when it's 320x240. now record a video and click send , it will work ! hope this helps all LG xenon users

This phone always freezes on me, and the storage room in the message box only allows less than 200 from inbox AND outbox put together. Bad phone.

I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone, i got mine last year and paid $299 dollars for it as i was so excited to get it. After general wear and tear, i found my phone switching itself off at unexpected times, then recently it has not been charging at all.

A really annoying drawback is the number pad. If you're in a call and need the number pad you have to unlock it, which I understand. What I don't understand is why 2 seconds later it's locked again. If you need to use the number pad for menus the quick locking is super annoying.
