things wrong with this phone

I've had this phone for a very long time and just a heads up to people wanting to buy it:
you can only have about 20 pics depending on the size of them
you can only have 3 downloaded ring tones
yes it does shut off but that only started a few days ago and it's very annoying
the middle buttons wear out [2,5,8,0]
100 texts max in your inbox

i do not recommend this phone

does the lg cg225 break as easily as i've heard?

I've heard that the lg cg225 breaks really easy and shuts off. I just recently had a phone that did that and it was horrible. Now i'm looking for a replacement and I don't want the same thing. Are the rumors true?

Initial thoughts on cg225

I just got a cg225 and am undecided whether to keep it or return it. My current phone that this may replace is an LG vi-125 on Sprint, which I like a lot due to its simplicity, compact design, and call quality.
Things I like so far:
--Ergonomically comfortable to hold and talk on
--pretty good build quality
--call quality seems excellent so far. Probably more clear and natural than my Sprint phone. Also, good range of volumes in the earpiece.
--phone keeps track of minutes and kilobytes you've used. You can reset the counters at any time.
--battery life is excellent
--camera is typical for a lower end camera could be worse.

Things I don't like:
--The main menu is ugly and can not be changed (it is grid style)
--The f...

im actually a cingular sales rep and this phone is horrible... the phone shuts off by itself and there is no reason for it...
the camera is not good and those clouds are really annoying Twisted Evil ... if anything thats good about an LG is their new LG CU 500 that is the best phone they make. we have 10 -12 returns a week and its all because of that problem!!!

Ringtone Question

I don't know if it's me or the phone, but whenever I set something as my ringtone, when I get an incoming call its not the one I set. I've tried to change it numerous times but it still won't work. Has anyone else had this problem?

I returned it

I decided to return this phone and exchange it for a Samsung d407. You will see that I already have a review posted for the CG225 as well as other comments in this forum. However, I just wanted to add a few more comments to help anyone considering this phone.

I tested the reception for this phone and the d407 by placing a call and then walking down a hallway where there is no Cingular service at the end. I did this a couple times for each phone. The two phones performed very similiar to each other, each losing reception at about the same point in the hallway. There wasn't enough of a difference to pick a winner. So, I would say that this phone has no deficits in the reception department (despite what others may say about LGs).

One o...

Another garbage phone from LG

LG should stop manufacuring phones for Cingular, or just stop making GSM phones period, they suck at making GSM phones and should just focus on CDMA phones which they probably do best.
