I had seen the LG240 at many cell phone stores. From the looks of it, the phone is sleek, cute and well made. A good buy you'd think? The price is reasonable, and the features seem to be great, "seem" is the keyword. After having this phone for one week, I already began having problems. LG SUCKS by the way. I used to think it was just a rumor , but yes they are not known for their phones. The first problem I had was uploading mp3 to the phone, as one of the features is that it is an mp3 phone. They give you a program to install and everything however the program doesn't work. After calling LG i was told that I had to do it another way, which meant going to my computer. The poing on includiong program software no idea! After figuring that out, I realised you are unable to set mp3s as ringtones. And the ringtones that come included truly do suck very badly. Camera wise, takes decent photos but they always look different once you view them in ur folder. Also after a couple of photos it switches to your memory card, internal memory is very small apparently. Once that occurs it says you have to reformat your card - another problem. You basicaly have to turn off the phone and take out the memory card and put it back in to get your phone working. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM OF ALL. It really bugs me when a phone says it included a feature, and then the feature does not work. BLUETOOTH - if you want it , don't get this phone! It does not connect to any phone whatsoever, and I even went back to the store to see if maybe I got a deffected one, and that one didnt work either. Even the store employee LG is not a good brand and will gladly return my phone for me. SOME other phones may locate you using bluetooth however DONT GET YOUR HOPES UP, once tryign to connect it says FAILED ! What a great feature to have on your phone - especially when it doesn't work. Sadly, this was my very first phone and a very big dissapointment I must say. I am now in search of a better phone. My best advice. Don't buy for looks, buy for quality. Make sure it works before you think its "cute".
