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 other thing - after getting my d407, the simplicity of the CG225's software is even more glaring. Hardly anything is customizable. You won't find any extra neat options in the menus. If you don't care about that stuff and just want to make calls, it won't really matter. But if you like to play around with your phone and change things to your liking, you will find the CG225 too simple and boring.

It is also very true what another reviewer said: this phone picks up a lot of fingerprints.

I maintain that the LG CG225 is a decent phone in that its reception and call quality are good and the camera is equal to most others. Its simplicity, though, will turn many users off.
