LG KP500 get renamed the LG Cookie

The LG KP500 mobile phone has been awarded the codename LG Cookie (where do they get these codenames from?) So there it is, you can now call this LG Renoir-lite handset the LG Cookie, just let’s hope it’s not crumby.

Names aside, the LG Cookie is actually not that bad a handset and packs, Quad-band GSM, GRPS/EDGE, 3MP camera, FM radio, BT 2.1, accelerometer, and a nice 3″ touch-screen display.

The LG Cookie promises to be an affordable mobile phone, and will run the latest version of LG’s touch-screen Flash based UI, and should command a price of roughly €170 which is about $228 US before subsidies.

    i dont know which phone to have for christmas, should i get this one? or look for a different one?

  2. Charlie says:

    I’m thinking about getting this phone for christmas.
    Does it ever switch itself off when you are on a call because of the touchscreen???

    1. Noo!
      I Got Mine For Christmas (2009),
      It's Only Been A Couple Of Months Since I Had One, And It Is SUPPER SLOW!
      And I DO NOT Have A Lot Of Stuff On There!
      EVERYONE That I Know HATES This Phone!
      DO NOT GET IT!
      Try To Go With Something Else!

      1. Katie83 says:

        i have the phone to and maybe its just your phone cuz mine works perfectly and i got it the same year as you so yea maybe its just yours

  3. Laaaaaaaaaauren says:

    does it have alot of memory + How many songs can it hold , ? is it a heavy phone xxxx

    1. NOOO, It DOES NOT Have A Lot Of Memory!
      And, It Can Hold A LOT Of Songs,
      BUT It Makes Your Phone EXTREMLY SLOW!
      And, NO!
      It's Very Light!

    2. georgia says:

      it has quite a lot of mmemory if you dont use it all on pictures and videos
      it depends how much texts and pics and videos you have got stored it does genurally store quite a lot of songs
      it is very light and i think that it is very easy just to put in your pocket

  4. courtney says:

    im thinking of getting this phone because i love it and i think girls and boys can have it its not against the law im a girl and im getting it for christmas just because its black dosn’t meen its not a girls phone

  5. jstwondrin says:

    do you always have to use a pen with the KP500, or can you just use your fingers like on the Tocco. ??

  6. bimbo says:

  9. GO-SAMMY says:

    can u see the screen in the sun?
    can u use it without the stick?
    is it slow ?

    thank you

  14. Vallen says:

    I have the LG Cookie and lets clear some things up!

    3.15mp camera – its really good, no flash.

    Video camera – doesnt judder, really good also!

    MP3 player – volume is loud, and doesnt get much quiter even when on lowest volume.

    Better than the iPhone – Hell yes! Great games, in text it has hand recognition, can handle MMS can bluetooth other phones, you can upgrade memory upto 8gb! Great touch! Really bright and colourful, easy to customize.
    I really do love this phone! It’s not a cheaper version of the iPhone/Tocco etc, its a bargain phone with the latest UI technology and its packed with features like motion sensor games and you can customize the main screen.

    This phone has everything, and more!
    Obviously, it doesnt have 3G or Wi-Fi, however the browser is fast, it uses EDGE, and no one really uses Wi-Fi anyways! Besides, itd cost about hundred pound more for those sorta features?!

  15. JB says:

    Hi, im from Czech rep, having this phone for 3 weeks…

    Pros:
    Screen – nice, bright, even at sunlight
    Speed – whole UI is very fast, no lacks anywhere
    UI – intuitive, easy, pretty resposnsive using both fingers and stylus
    Media – nice video, options for picture editing better than MS Paint!!
    Dimension – really small light device
    battery time: nonstop operation for +-5 days

    Cons:
    Crashes from time to time (sendind 200MB file via BT)
    Playback volume tooooo loud even at minimum
    Its too light – sometimes you dont know if you have your phone in pocket 😉
    poor profiles settings…

    Summary – show me better touch phone for 99 pounds 😉

  19. Jack.. ;) says:

  23. emma says:

    Ok thank u…
    i got lg pink at min.. not had any problems with it, apart from can’t seem to work the facebook on it for some reason!

  24. Not found says:

    I think some models of KU(KE)990 viewty have some built in facebook/gmail functionality, but i can do the really same with external java apps (gmail for mobile and opera mini).

  25. emma says:

    i’m on o2.. dt use the internet very often on my phone that is, but would like 2 use it 4 facebook whilst i’m out n about..

  26. Not found says:

    In addition – opera mini has facebook on the home screen, so not problem at all 😉

    I really like the phone. Tons of features…but LG sw could be much better (mean computer sw, not phone fw)

  27. emma says:

    didn’t understand that sorry… computer sw??? phone fw????
    Def interested in cookie tho… really like it!!!!

  28. muna says:

  57. Kourosh says:

    sorry, i read a good amount of the comments, but theres a fair few dont you think?

    anyway, thanks, might buy this…

  58. emily says:

    Basically, i am considering getting this phone to replace a Samsung U700v which has broken, and therefore and looking to buy it today.

    I’m not too fussed about music and games, but the only thing that is worrying me is the issue with quite a few touch screen phones – unlike the iphone you can’t seem to be able to buy any form of ‘invisible sheild’ or cover for the phone, and i read somewhere else that a person had only had their phone for a few hours and it had already scratched on the screen from the stylus. My last phone ended up very scratched from being in my pocket and just generally every day use – i was just wondering is this phone very delicate and therefore very easy to scratch and harm? I’m looking for something fairly robust, as well as dtylish and good looking. Not an easy combination to find!

    Would very much appreciate a response, thanks! 🙂

  59. Nadine says:

    Emily, I got my phone at christmas and it was my first touch screen and I worried about that but ive only got one scratch on so far and its a very faint one and that was only from dropping it on the floor. I have it in my pocket a lot of the time and its in my bag aswell and its never marked it at all from this. Also its a great phone so I advise you get it 🙂

    Does any one know where you can get more motion sensor games from at all??

  60. omg = | says:

    i cant belive i bought this pile off shit
    it is a lasses phone if u look in my stuff love hearts on every icon
    camera is a fail
    bad memory fun is plain shit

  61. emily says:

    Thank you Nadine, that’s really helpful! I think I will go for it 🙂 Now the only issue is finding a store near me with it in stock, it seems to have sold out everywhere so it’s obviously very popular!

  62. Leanne says:

    Hey, I know this question has already been asked… But does it have a privacy lock where you can put a pin on your messages etc? Thanks

  63. Dellie says:

    i am thinking of getting this phone nd i have heard so many reviews saying that it crashes all of the time iwas was just wondering if is that big of an issue and if it happens to everyone
    plz help!

  64. Stacy says:

    I will answer any questions asap that you have about the phone x
    Just ask for my answer using my name or whatever

    thank you

    Stacy 🙂

  65. emily says:

    I got this phone yesterday after seeing the reviews on here, which I found very useful. I was worried about how easily the phone would scratch, but the body of the phone itself is slightly rubbery meaning it is durable yet still very good looking. I love it – it’s proved very easy to use, and I have found texting simpler than I had thought. It’s very light and thin, too, hardly bigger than my previous Samsung U700v and much lighter.

    Thank you to those who answered my questions, and I am more than happy to do the same for anyone else!

  66. Alex says:

    Hey all, really want this phone but cant find it in any other colour but black 🙁 Could someone please tell me where i can get it in any of the other colours please? Thanks…

  67. Jess says:

    heyy,

    no the phone doesn’t switch off a call because of the touch screen.

    to end a call u have to press one of the three buttons below the screen.

    so dont worry about hanging up during a call!

    🙂

  68. emily says:

    Dellie – although I have only had my Cookie three days, there has been no sign of it crashing. It has been working perfectly.

    Alex – No, I don’t think any other colours are available in this country yet. They will be, though, as I believe they are already available in America, but the black one has only just been released here (if you’re in the UK, that is). Hopefully it won’t be too long until they’re made available!!

    Hope that helps – I absolutely love the phone! 🙂

  69. chetan nagarkar says:

    Hey Ppl out there, i got this phone 6 days back, and its truely amazing, it has come with a 1 gb micro sd included, a screen cover, headset, data cable and the stylus.
    Its really good…! Im in love with it !!

  70. bbbysherry says:

    its good to read all the comments on the cookie but lets face it for the money its brill it does just about everything you could want a phone to do the bat lasts for days you can here it when it rings the internet is quick the screen is good call quality is brill its light to carry for some people this is not enough mabee they should spend more money and buy a bike and then get on it ?

  71. emily says:

    Haha I don’t think I could possibly agree more with the last comment!! Very well said 😀

  72. jed says:

    does it shut itself down? it does every so often not much though….
    is the camera good quality? yeah decent quality, just a shame no flash…
    can it hold many songs? aye you need to buy a memory card for it but can get a 8g…
    can u see the screen in the sun? yeah i have no problem with it…
    can u use it without the stick? yeah you dont need the pen..
    is it slow ? not really slow sertain applications are slow but its not bad…

    alltogether this isnt a bad phone at all the battery is good also, i did have a problem with it sending multiple texts but took it back and got another and its fine now..

    8/10 from me

  73. sophie says:

    Another Question…
    Does This Phone Have Email Apparently It Does But Like I Dunnno
    And Could ANYONE Answer My Questions I Made 2 Comments Up Please ^^^^^^
    Thanks
    x

  77. emily says:

    Lawhls:

    Is There Anything I Should Know Bout It ?
    Not really..to be honest I love it. I have had it nearly two weeks now and cannot criticise it in any way. It does everything I need it to.. So I’m very happy 🙂

    Can You Buy Like Those Rubber Covers For It ?
    I’m still working on that. I would like one, and will look into it over the weekend so will let you know if I find anything decent. Although to protect the screen it comes with a “Protction Film” which is very handy.

    What Does It Come With ?
    Headphones, USB cable, CDrom for LG PC suite II to sync it to the computer making it really easy to transfer photos, music etc., charger, Screen protection film, instruction manual and Stylus which fits into the bottom corner of the phone.

    What Are The Bad Points Of This LG Cookie Phone ?
    Haven’t found any yet 🙂 I was worried it would unlock when making calls but it doesn’t at all. It locks and then you hang up using the buttons instead of the touch screen. Only thing is twice when I have had it in my phone it has unlocked and rung someone, but that was far more my fault than the phone.

    Should I Get It ?
    Well, it depends what your main use is for a phone. Mine is literally as a phone..but I like a few games and to be able to access the internet, which the cookie does perfectly. I have an ipod and camera separately, so those aren’t my main uses for the phone however the camera is good enough for what I would use it for and the phone does hold the little selections of songs I put on it. The memory isn’t bad, however, if you would like to store more on it, I would advise you get an SD memory card for it. They aren’t too expensive, but definately worth it as it increases the memory by loads 🙂

    Also to unknown: I THINK it’s java but i’m not too sure, so someone will have to back that up!

    Hope that helps!! 😀

    Hi emily this is a question to you :p Im from holland and my english is not that good. I am thinking of buy this phone. The only thing that holds me back is that there are very many reviews who say the phone
    chrashes a lot and’;
    it switch itselve of
    What is your experience with those two things?

  80. emily says:

    No problem, glad it helped! 🙂

    Yes it does. You can set it to recieve emails from your email account 🙂

  82. Dominic says:

    Hey
    i was thinking about getting this phone as mine just broke :/!
    does anyone know what the txting is like ?
    do you have to do it with the pen?
    if not is it easy to use?

    thnx
    xx

  83. emily says:

    Iris: Sorry I took so long to reply! I must admit before I got the phone I had read lots of reviews saying it crashed etc. and I was was worried about it, but so far I haven’t experienced anything like that! It hasn’t turned itself off, frozen or crashed once 🙂

    Dominic: Texting can be done with or without the pen, on a QWERTY keyboard or a normal keypad or on a handwriting recognition mode. The QWERTY keyboard and handwriting recognition are easier with the pen, though. I must say it is a little hard to begin with if you’re used to normal keypad buttons on your last phone like I was, but I persevered and have got used to it now.

    Hope that helps, and I’ll try to answer any other questions people have 🙂

    Yes, it does.

    Can You Download The Internet ?
    I’m not sure what you mean by this, sorry! 🙁

    Email ?
    Yes. You can enter your email address and password into the phone so it recieves your emails and you can send them, too.

    Is It Easy To Set-Up ?
    Yes, very! The settings it comes with are pretty much how you need them, but you can make changes to them easily too. The first couple of times you turn it on it comes up with a brief tutorial, which is helpful.

    Is The Keyboard Easy To Use ?
    I find the keypad, which is like the buttons on a normal phone, the easiest way to text/email as you can do this with either the stylus or your fingers. The QWERTY keyboard is also good, however the buttons are small and so you need to use the stylus. Admitedly it does take some getting used to, particularly if you’re not used to a touch sceen phone, but I have got used to it and now find it very easy 🙂

    Would You Say It’s The Best Phone You’ve Ever Used?
    It’s very different. At first I thought I would find having a touch screen far too difficult, but now I have got used to it I absolutely love it and would probably say that it is the best phone I’ve had 🙂

    How Much Memory Does It Have On The Phone Itself ?
    To be honest I’m not too sure, as I got the memory card when I got the phone so I have had it in the phone all along, however, so far I have not had to use it to put photos on and I have about fifty on the phone and about one hundred texts. I don’t really know about how much music it will hold yet, but so far the memory does’t seem to be too bad 🙂

    Sorry some of the answers are a bit vague, but I hope you find that useful. 😀 x

    Is There Internet on The Phone ?

    does any body know if you can get passcodes on messages and thing?
    i have read through all the comments and no one seems to have answered that queston.

  90. darren says:

    i don’t have the phone but a few friends of mine do it is a very good phone it is abit slow but apart from that it is really good would recomend to anyone…

  91. emily says:

    leah: I may be wrong, but i have looked and cannot find a way of locking messages etc. You can have a pin code for when you turn the phone on, though.

  92. Amy says:

    HI – I got this phone today – love it, few problems though, obviously the whole ‘usb not recognised’ situation; I will just buy a bluetooth dongle i hear thats much more reliable, and I don’t want all of my images to be displayed in the gallery – can anyone help me with this, it says nothing in the manual and I have no idea if i can lock folders or files but so far, no luck. Please help…xxxx

  93. Lisa says:

    Oh i got the phone few days ago. I just love it. touchscreen is really good! no problems so far.

  94. Elisha says:

    I have this phonee and absolutly love it! The only thing i wish it had was a flash – but to be honest im not so bothered about having an amazin camera like the viewty . This phone probably is more a girl phone – but i know guys who have it aswell. Plus you can get it in black, silver, black & red, PINK! and soon gold 🙂
    Hope that helps

  95. Fran says:

    i am thinking about getting this phone need to pursaude my mom 🙂
    i am looking forward to getting it lol

  96. Lyndon davies says:

    Is Emily still out there?

    Phone sounds great but still reading alot of other sites saying it crashes and switches off for no reason, any comments on this???
    Also can I use my own music as ringtones and message tones??

    thanks.

  97. djd says:

    oh my god some people seriously.
    does this phone work on vodafone and not just orange – lmfaoo funniest question ever, duhh im sure they release phones on most networks these days.
    does it work with vista – hmm its a bloody phone that shouldnt be a main concern

    some people need to learn how to use google! (no advertising intended, any other search provider will do the same thing)

  98. Ashley Tisdale says:

    I had the iPhone, Then the blackberry, Now this and i would recommed it to anyone

    Ash Tiz 🙂

  99. emily says:

    Lyndon davies: Yes I am! Sorry I have taken so long to reply. In answer to your question, I too was worried about the turning off/crashing issue because I had read it in so many places. Since I have had the phone, it has turned itself off once, however, this may not have been the phones fault as it was in my pocket so it may have somehow pressed the off button. In the month since then, I have had absolutely no problems like that and it has been functioning perfectly! Also, yes you can use your own ringtones and message tones.

    To those with problems connecting phone to computer: has the software from the cd properly downloaded onto your computer? The first time I tried it said it wouldn’t work but it turned out the installation had not been completed. I am sure you’ve tried this, but just an idea as it happened to me!

    Hope this helps!

  100. nathalie says:

    This phone has turned itself off and reset loads – software is corrupt so i sent it back for repair…

    It’s also really easy to use.

  108. Nic says:

    Hi Stacy!

    I just bought the LG Cookie recently and I want to know the answers to some of my queries. Here they are:

    1. How can I remove the shutter sound of the camera? Even when it is on Silent mode, there is still a shutter sound.

    2. Will it get slow when I use the 8GB memory card? Do you recommend it or should I use a smaller memory (4GB perhaps)?

    3. How can I transfer documents such as Word, Powerpoint, Excel and PDF files?

    That’s all.. Thank you!

  109. xxxxxxxxxxx says:

  110. Liisa says:

    Hi xxxxxxxx…
    I also had the same problem. but it is really easy. the only thing you have to do is go to the settings
    -> pick the connectivity ->usb connection mode->mass stroage and then connect your cookie with your pc and it should work out fine;)
    (i’m sorry if i had some gramma mistakses,im from estona)
    best wishes

  111. Emily says:

    This is a great phone. My friend has the viewty and mne is so much better than hers and it was cheaper! For the price of it (cheap) it has everything you need. It is easy to customze things, the camera is very good and the touch screen is perfect (very easy to text). I would recommend you to put a memory card in though as the storage memory isnt great. This is the best phone I have ever had. The first lg phone I have ever had and its brill and I would definately choose and lg phone again in the future!

    I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!

  112. Lyndon says:

    Emily……. WHERE ARE YOU?

    Does anyone know where I can get games that use the motion sensor in the phone?

    And can you turn off the shutter sound when phone is on silent??

  113. Fay says:

    I brought this phone on saturday,
    in England (where i am ?! :P) it is currently £107.00 on orange. You also get a free £10 Airtime voucher (credit) which; on orange. You get the choice of a package, free £1 credit for submitting your details and the £10 from Argos. All free with the phone :). (Plus the rewards from the animal packages). I found this offer was the best out of all the ones i compared. This is a great phone, i have had no problems with it at all. But i would highly suggest having a memory card in there as memory usage does go up pretty quickly. I’m on the dolphin package and i have no problem getting on the internet and using my rewards etc. The touchscreen is sensitive so when texting i can use my fingers with ease. And if you rotate the phone sideways; you have a choice of keyboards. The battery life is actually better than many reviews have said in my opinion. Although as my old phone didn’t; i have a habit of charging it up every one or two days. It hasn’t frozen on my yet. But if it does, all you do is take out the battery; and place it back in after 4 or 5 minutes. The connectivity (bluetooth etc) is fine. But when connecting the phone to my laptop (Windows vista which may be why..) It kept unplugging itself when it’s still plugged in, i don’t know how to explain it though. LOL :L. In conclusin this phone is a keeper and i’m not going to be changing it for a long time, it is a cheap touchscreen phone but excellent quality. Highly Recommended Phone.

    Hope that helped.. 🙂

    Charlotte[:

I havent had any problems with it at all and ive had it for over 3 months now. the games and other extras are amazing . for this price the phone is absolutely amzing. it has so many special features it is unbelievable. i havent really used the internet on it much but when i have it is realluy fast and easy to use. i wasnt really sure about getting this phone as before i got it, i came on here and seen all the negative comments so i was pretty worried about it tuerning itself off ect. BELIEVE ME THIS PHONE IS AMAZING DO NOT DOUBT GETTING IT !!!!!

    Please help

  140. GothicGirlJenny says:

    This is the first LG phone i have bought, i have always got Sony Erricsons, but it is such a great phone. It is fast, easy to use and really cool overall.

    I did get puzzled when i put the clock on the screen and couldnt get it off but i after half hour of getting stressed, i found out i had to unlock the little box thing so i could move it back, so simple it annoyed me lol.

    the only thing i dont like about it though is when you take a normal photo, you cant zoom in, the only way you can zoom in is taking a video or using burst mode (which is taking 3 quick shots).
    its annoying you cant use zoom in normal camera shot.

    but apart from that is really amazing!

    highly reccommendedddd

  141. Charl-ie says:

    AGREE !!

    but is there any sites where i can get any gamess because i have loads on there but that dont play becasue they arnt payed for or something.
    Free games of corse !

  147. Ben says:

    this phone is amazing! people keep reporting faults with it but they’re not faults with the phone, it’s the SIM card that makes that happen. change network. and it’s NOT a girls phone… in fact if i had to choose one i would have to say boy’s phone. i think it is suited to both genders.

    this is the best phone for under £100 and i think it appeals to all age groups between 10 and 100. it also suits boys and girls depending on the colour you buy it in.

  148. Charlotte says:

    this phone is not a girls phone.
    this amazing touch screen phone is great indoors and outdoors, the touch screen locks itself when in a call so this enables you to carry on with your call without being shut off by the touch screen 🙂 an outstanding 5*’s has been given to this phone on a top quality voting site. go on…GET ITTTT 😀

  149. natalie !!!! says:

    is this a good phone? when you are on the phone will it not go off when you touch it with your ear? How big of a memory can you have upto.

Phone is so slow and the touch is awful, PLEASE DONT WASTE UR MONEY LG COOKIE IS SHIT!

    Heap of scrap, don’t bother. The LG software update goes round in circles and is wrtten in poor English and LG customer service is awful. The “Warranty Claim” section of the LG website doesn’t work. The worst phone I have ever had.

    this phonee is amazing! 😀 i just got it recently, only 65$, i bought it used on ebay, but new ones are 110$ on ebayy. It's definatly my favorite phone so far. It's kinda slow, and texting is a kinda a pain, but i'm guessing i'm just gonna have to get used to it. The screen in the sunlight is TERRIBLE, i literally can't see anything. Other than the slowness(but its bareable), and the screen in sunlight, its''s a GREAT phone. i love it, and i recommened it to anybody.(:
