things wrong with this phone
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
Initial thoughts on cg225
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 phone...it could be worse.
Things I don't like:
--The main menu is ugly and can not be changed (it is grid style)
the camera is not good and those clouds are really annoying ... 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!!!

I returned it
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).
Another garbage phone from LG
