Well done to Adidas Addict for first pointing out this deal.

This is a wicked price for such a new phone, released 11 days ago, exclusive at the mo to carphone warehouse.

Available in Dark Grey + Sunset Red. The price includes a £10 t-mobile/virgin mobile top up, but the phone is sim free unlocked.

Now available online - same price - in Sunset Red and Silver, no Dark Grey for some reason.

People selling them £200+ on ebay!

Thanks BB! Yea I have posted on the other thread that the new deal is here lol! :thumbsup:

No heat til seen it in store

Ok, I checked today at work and it is £129.99 + £10 top up. If you have an old phone to trade in you get £10 for this too, so making it £129.99.

Please be aware that this price is when paying via debit/credit card and you will have to buy £20 top up on the new sim if paying cash.

To confirm on this thread as I did on the other one, this handset is fully sim-free with no network locks or branding of any description.

Yep, Im using mine on o2, but I bought the phone with a £10 tmobile top up, works perfectly.

Right, I have used this for half a day, very impressed so far. The menu is great and can be customized a great deal, in terms of changing fonts and sounds, really stylish phone.

I got one of these phones yesterday and am very impressed with it. The touchpad works well, the screen is v.good and the build quality - it's all metal and glass - is excellent. Got it from CPW and, like most of their phones, it's unlocked.

Looked in store today and it was 129.95 but it was available on a number of networks not just Tmobile? Are they all unlocked or just the tMobile ones?

They are all unlocked sim free but buying with a t-mobile £10 sim is the cheapest option, in my local store they are charging £10 extra if you have it with a o2 sim etc

After a weekend of using the phone here is a small review:

The phone is extremely slim, especially after handling nokias n-series for a while, this time I wanted to go for a good looking phone that didnt skimp on features. I was a little apprehensive of buying a touch control after using a e900 that drove me nuts, but I have to say the touch panel works great, its very responsive and really cool to use, especially the scroll function, where you can slide your finger on the panel to scroll faster, useful if you have lots of music/contacts on the phone.

The phone's speaker isnt quiet, but not that loud either, wish it could go up a little! In terms of customization the KF510 can do a heap load of tricks, it has 3 pre-loaded themes, a load of swf full wallpapers, you can change the font, size and style. The dialing interface can be changed with 3 different syles to choose from - I recommend Digital - very retro! lol. Loads of sounds on there, which annoy most people, but I love them, and these can be changed or turned off.

The camera is good, not that I use that aspect of a phone much, I just wanted a phone that looks cool, easy to use, and can be customized on the inside to make it look different, so I dont get bored too fast, and the KF510 delievers, for £140 including £10 airtime you cant to wrong.

Anyone know what maximum memory card these LGs take and if they support bluetooth A2DP??

Cheers

I had an iphone, sold it though, touch isnt for me, took me 10 mins to write a text lol.

does anyone know if this phone is 3g as I am wanting to put a three sim card in it

I bought one, but within 3 days took it back. The sound quality was terrible on a call. Even an SPV mobile from a couple of years ago sounded better. Couldn't get it to turn off properly either (maybe just me?). Other functionality seemed good. So I advise anyone to make a call in the shop to check out the quality of the sound coming through.

Don't think this is a 3g phone.

could anybody check what are languages in this phone ??
and is it really unlocked ?

how loud is the ringtone?

i need a phone with a loud tone?

looks like a great deal and am looking at reviews for it

it expands up to 4GB on micro SD and does support bluetooth A2DP but not 3G

Does this have a flash?

How different is this phone to the venus?

scrap the 4gb micro sd from memory that i said before, have got one today and it says in the manual 2gb max
i found the 4gb in a review.
and it does have a flash.

I just tested my 4gb micro it works but makes the phone slow when accessing mp3 etc.

this phone isn't worth £140 IMO. the specifications are below average.

Have to disagree............

Just got mine today and its brilliant.

Nice and slim and extremely well made - gorgeous to look at.

Popped Orange sim in no problems at all.

Google the model number and Play.com have it for £499.99 !!

Thanks op.

It doesn't matter how much the phone is worth, it's how good the phone is for the price you pay. Like the Samsung Armani phone it's expensive but it's the worst phone ever.

And this phone is good for the price you pay, :thumbsup:

Not really IMO, it has one of the worst user interfaces and the file management is really slow. The worst part is the camera it's way below average, SE K750i takes better photos than this. I'd expect LG to have improved their phones by now from LG Shine. The only thing i can say good about the phone is the looks, it's eye catching.

Anyone know if this works with 3> Is that a camera I see at the front aswell?

Nope it isnt 3G, that cam looking thing is a light sensor, that detects how bright the screen should be in your surroundings.

It really is unlocked. Languages are English, Greek, Hrvatski, Cestina, Danish, Nederlands, Suomi, French,German, Magyar, Italian,Norsk ,Nynorsk, Polish,Portuguese,Romanian,Serbian,Slovensky,Slovenian,Spanish,Svenska,Turkish,.....and Automatic! And some my keyboard can't cope with.
Seems pretty comprehensive!

Definately only 2.5G....no 3G. But still a nifty phone.
Do CPW still give you some money back if they reduce the price of a phone within a certain time?

Thanks Bryan, argh, really wanted this!
