    Hiya, my W550i has broke!! and really im looking for something different. The LG KG800 has caught my eye so anyone with one just a few questions please!

    Does it come with the USB cable? (02 contract)
    How loud is the loudspeaker in comparison to other phones or the W550i?
    Any problems that I should look out for?
    Or any other phones that are availiable on 02 that are worth looking at?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I looked at the LG and I kinda liked it, thought it a tad girly though.
    O2 do the E900 as well. In the end I went for that (better camera, bit less girly etc). Too early to say if it's a great phone or not though.

    Yeah I understand what you mean. E900 has expandable mem and 2mp camera.. But its nothing different from the rest really. Whereas the LG seems to be alot more stylish and different, probably something im looking for.

    Thanks :)

    I went for the more girly option ;) (honestly its really not girly :( ) had the LG for about a week now it was a replacement for a n70(dont get me started on that POS tho). The Lg comes with a Usb cable yes it does also have a set of headphones, a disc which ive not even looked at and a really girly handbag type of case believe me you wont be taking it out in that.

    First impressions are it does'nt do loudspeaker on calls that i know of but i may have misses it some place, the ring tones i would say are slightly quieter than the n70 but not massively, also the menus seem to be extremly fast(but i have come from a n70 so maybe part of the reason for that). All round its a good phone i think the reason ive had this one is because it was different in looks and alot less brick like than my n70.

    As NuclearBaggin's said, the KG800 doesn't have a loudspeaker function but it does come with a decent handsfree kit if that's of any use to you.

    got it as a second phone to my w900, and to be honest, i'm using it more.

    Its smaller, lighter, a LOT more sleek, and pretty much does everything my w900 did (just not as well).

    On the whole very pleased with it - got it on a great deal which will end up costing me £150 for the year of owning it and 200mins/100texts free.

    I've had one for a while now (was the 1st customer in the store to get one as well!)

    It's a pretty good phone although txting is slow (non predictive) and I can't get the USB cable/software to work.
    Loudsepaker would be nice but overall it's a good handset.

    My g/f LG would'nt d/l any of the extras on the mini CD she did this: goto Connectivity/Modem/Yes on mobile - then plug the usb in.
