Mood - SAD

Christmas Eve~☆◊☆◊☆!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Nu~po! <OAO>!!!

My new cell phone…. ↓

(Cries)

…hanged! <o_o>{!!]

IT HANGED!

!! cries !!

I was hoping that I could report good news in my second report for the LG KF350 but NOooo~ Something awfully wrong just can’t spare sheep! (Tears)

I tried removing the battery, sim card, connect it to the computer … even wished that somehow the alarm that I set for the next day will somehow trigger the system to function again… In the end all attempts were futile. <;__;>

Sheep is sad and disappointed. It hung for 3 days already. <_  _>lll

A~ah well.. *sobs* After Christmas, I’ll send it for repair — And please after this, no more surprises. I hate surprises. <u_u,>

Besides this, I have more things to report about this phone.

  • Input dictionary keeps resetting to default - I’m used to typing manually so the first thing I did when I got the phone was — I disabled the dictionary. However, when I turned off and on my phone again — The dictionary enables itself again. It’s annoying in the sense that I have to keep disabling every time I switch on my phone.
  • The receiving end can’t hear me clearly – I phoned Mira a couple of times and she had difficulties in making out what I was saying. She said that my voice sounded very soft and unclear. <;__;> Saru-chan called me once and he thought I was half-sleep judging from my sloppy voice!
  • MMSMira sent me a MMS and at first, I had problems retrieving it. Later I discovered that I needed to download the MMS settings again. I’m using HOTLINK and in the process getting the settings, I couldn’t find LG KF350 in the category of download. Usually you need to select your phone model before downloading the settings, right? Perhaps LG KF350 is too new that’s why. In this case, I selected LG KF300, since it’s sort of similar to LG KF350. Fortunately, it worked!
  • External LED - Baa… I’m not sure whether it’s meant to be or only my phone is dysfunctional but — the time and emoticon only appeared for 2 seconds and disappeared just like that. Odd…

Apart from these, I have nothing more to report.. Since my phone hanged on the 2nd day BEFORE I could explore it to the fullest. (Cries)

Due to this unwanted incident, I could not take a picture of the dead rat that Auwlithe killed.

You see, this rat has been camping in our car engine for weeks. We didn’t know until Auwlithe urged us to check the car engine.

We tried to catch it but the rat was such a sneak and our rat traps were to no avail.

Anyway, yesterday when I returned home from shopping — Auwlithe showed me the dead rat and it appears that it’s neck was twisted.

I’m convinced that it was Auwlithe’s work since he killed another rat and a pigeon using the same method, in front of me.

… Auwlithe, いい子だ~♥! <^v^>/

Baa~ <u_u>

Time for sheep to leave~!

Baa-bai minna-hun~

And …

MERRY CHRISTMAS~~!

↑ Mum bought this hat specially for Auwlithe~♪! <^ω^>v

<TTATT> (Cries) My ice-cream phone…

!! U~~WAaaaaaaa~~~ !!

While everyone is celebrating, Ms.Aya is going to cry herself to sleep. <;__;>

*tap Sheep*

Hey… It’s a very disapointing news… looks like a component got unpluged inside the phone. :/

Hope LG would be fast for your phone’s repair, ganbare Sheep ! Maybe the speaker and LED problems are connected.

Going to pray for your phone to work again.

pull the bsttery out, shuts off device, put it back in and turn on.
very much like when a computer hangs and evrything else fails, i pull the plug (literally); then boot it up.

*Sneaks in* The fool that is mostly likely been forgotten is here to give a holiday’s greeting.

Its been long since I’ve bothered to check up and this happens. You two have moved away from a hosted blog to your own site!!! Wow…congrats!! I’ve basically given up on my blog so. XD

ANYWAYS, sorry to not have stopped in for a greeting sooner. I do hope that both Aya-chan and Mira have been doing fine. ^_^;;;

~Hsppy holidays + Happy New Years

Aya,

Hey, better go ask the ppl where u buy the phone ASAP …

Dogs catch rats huh ? Cats are suck catching rats now due to the mega size of the rats ..

Thanks everyone.

I went back to the dealer and was attended by the same ‘cute-but-not-my-type’ guy. I was allowed to return the phone and get a new one however, they don’t have pink color in stock. Only blue was left.

So I decided that I’ll wait until Tuesday to get a new one. (Sighs) That means once I get the new phone, I have to adjust the settings and refill my phone book again.. (_ _)lll

For the time being, I’m going to be good friends with my old Nokia7390.. without the external memory card since I’m having difficulties in inserting it. Maybe it hates me for substituting it? (Cries)

A~ah well… Minna-hun ookini~

.. Yo, Kou-san! Mei.bui.kuu.rii.ssu!

i dont know, i just bought this phone on xmas eve and im on my third day using this phone. I feel nervous using this phone bcuz im afraid that something like this will happen to mine. TT.TT

and and, i think there was once when i flip open the phone, it blacked-out and restart again!! 0_0

11.  Ms.Aya
December 27th, 2008 at 12:22 pm

Thanks, Shien Yi~ Same to you!

Dear Miamy

It blacked-out and restarted? Oh dear…

I hope when I get my new replacement phone, it will not have any of these errors. (Cries)

Have we been duped over it’s neatly and lovely design? (Tears) O~h well.. All the best to your phone.

If it spoils within a week, you can ask for a new phone from the dealer. (^-^*)/

… I wonder, does anyone’s LGKF350 ice-cream phone have this problem with their battery? One minute the battery has 2 bars left and then when re-opening it, it becomes 3 again?

Baa…

12.  miamy
December 27th, 2008 at 4:17 pm

ms aya : yeah. the battery is.. weird. lol like when it dropped to 2 bars, the next moment when i flip open it, its 3 bars again. lol but the battery life isnt that great too. like I’ve gotta charge once every two days. hmmphh.

and, you mean i can get a new phone only during the first week if the phone spoiled??

13.  Ms.Aya
December 27th, 2008 at 6:24 pm

Baa.. That means — 8/10 LGKF350 are possibly having the same problems.

Yes, if the phone spoils within a week — you can ask for a new one. After 1 week, I don’t know if your dealer is lenient enough to replace a new one. But you can use your warranty to have it fix for free.

But after you mention that the battery life is so uncertain… I think better to have it fix once and for all. What’s the point of getting a new phone which will eventually have the same problem?

One last thing: Can your receiver hear your voice clearly on the other side?

December 28th, 2008 at 10:23 pm

Dear Cubbie,

*Nods* Must click the side buttons whenever you want to check the time. It’s ok for it to be that way because you get to reserve battery power. But the light goes off very fast. I mean it — VERY FAST.

Under 2 seconds and the light goes off. (Tears)

自分のことを’うち’って呼ばれるのは面白いねぇ、あやっちはやっぱ関西弁が好きだね。

Auwlitheちゃんがねずみも嫌いなんだい?、わぁ、犬だけど猫の便利なとこもあって素晴らしいっすねぇ。

Is the problem resolved?

December 30th, 2008 at 12:06 am

Dear Rocketd-hun,

”うち”のこと。。。え?違うですか?

’うち’のことが関西弁でっしょ?まあ。。今あたしおとな人になりちゃった、’うち’がつかうわぜんぜんだめなら。。。(涙)

そう、Auwlithe便利なそうです。そのために、おかさんが犬がほしです。だってそのまえに、おかさんお犬があんまりすきです!嬉しい!

。。。はい、もっと練習してがつよです。 (_  _)lll

よしゃ!もっとがんばります!

Dear Kou-san,

また日本語!?

で、本まかいな?本なら、あたしすごくうれしかったです!どもーーおおきに!

しかし、まだまだ本まに日本語がやるでっしょ。。

My sentence structure is horrible and incorrect..

Dear Mokopi,
My dealer hasn’t got back to me.
All I can tell you is — It’s best for you to give the phone a shot. Because it’s so popular, it might get sold out in time to come.

I think most people buy this phone because of the design, not the function. If you’re very particular about the functions and you’re not satisfied with LGKF350′s, then you better not waste your money on this.

Ok, let’s switch to english again ha ha ha.

Firstly, I was saying that it’s funny you call yourself “uchi”, coz that’s kansai-ben’s manners, but I remembered you told me you like kansai-ben^^.

@Kou: Ayacchi’s a cool nickname right?? I have a japanese friend called Aya, and their friends either call her Ayapii or Ayapion ha ha ha ha, so I came with this Ayacchi nickname avoiding imitations.

Dear Rocketd

Sorry. I thought I saw the word ‘oyako’ when it’s actually oyatsu… (Tears)

I really can’t read Japanese properly.

Ayacchi is a cute name *mecha kawaii*. Thanks for giving me this nickname. (Laughs)

- pi is also cute. Japanese people sure have nice suffixes to use. How envious!

*Edit* Wait… You wrote ‘Ayacchi… Not ‘oyatsu! Sorry! Read wrongly — AGAIN!
Dear Saru-chan

I haven’t got my replacement phone yet. They keep telling me week after week! Sheep is so angry!

Waaa! While sheep was sick, you too hooligans set my blog on fire!?

(Cries!)

Good thing Rocketd has conscience! *Cuts Saru-chan’s tail*

(Laughs) Just kidding.

I’m a bit flabbergasted with the hand phone shop too. I haven’t got my phone until now. It has been 2 weeks + already.

Even though I made a remark that the dealer is cute, but keeping me waiting isn’t cute anymore!

The last time I went to the shop, my mother threatened that she will kill him if he does not get me my phone by next week. (o_o)

So Saru-chan and Rocketd, keep your hands clean from blood and sin. My mother will do it. (Laughs)

OMG!, I really hope your mom doesn’t get involved in some bloody mess over there….

You were sick??, are you feeling better now??. I was wondering why you didn’t show up for several days… now I realise you were sick… anyway!, I’m glad you made it back again^^. Happy new year!.

31.  Ms.Aya
January 4th, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Thank you for your kind concern~
Sheep is feeling much better than before!

Y~ay!

I too hope that my mother will not climb over the counter and strangle that dealer to death.

argghhh i missed out so much.. anyways, i can hear clearly and i even tested it myself.

And one of the reason why Im here today is because, I COULDNT TURN ON MA PHONEEE! wtf! -_-

I was in college this afternoon and i couldnt call so i checked my phone and it says emergency call only. So i thought why not try switching it off and when i on it back, the same thing happened. The KF350 logo is there and nothing else. I could only turn off the phone when i take off the batteries. sighhhhhh -_-;

I have a friend in canada and korea, they are using this phone too but they said they have so prob with the phone so far.

omgoshhhh TT.TT enough of my ranting comment today lols. may I know where did ya buy ur phone from??

33.  Ms.Aya
January 5th, 2009 at 7:10 pm

Oh my goodness!

Your phone also hang like that?

Before my phone hanged, I checked my phone book and I noticed that the groups that I renamed earlier went back to default. (Normally, instead of naming the group Family, I would put ‘Kazoku’ and so on)

I edited the groups’ names again and tried to turn off the phone and turn it on again to check whether the names reverted back to default.

After that, it hanged!

Miamy, I think the system is very faulty because it is an unlocked phone and has been tampered with.

That’s why our phones has problems while Canada and Korea does not.

The same thing happen to me. I could only turn off the phone AFTER removing the battery. I tried to leave the phone switched on for more than half the day also no use.

(Cries) So how? Did you go back to the shop and ask for a new one or you’re going to send it for repair?

In my opinion, I think it’s better to send it for repair because what’s the point you get a brand new one that could spoil too? At least once it’s fix, the problem should be resolve, right?

Some more if you want a new one, you might have to wait a very long time because the phones are out of stock. (Tears) I wait for like — 3 weeks already!

I bought mine in Jusco Tebrau City in JB.

P.S: Go ahead and rant all you want. This phone can really break people’s heart therefore it’s totally understandable!

!! Cries !!

January 6th, 2009 at 2:05 pm

hi aya and miamy…

I got the same phone and it hanged. I went to the dealer and they said I had to go to LG electronics in Kelana Jaya. I went there and they said their system is down on that day so they cannot repair for me. So I asked the woman another place for repairing..

After that, I went to Bandar Sunway to find Phoneworx. They said I had to wait for one day for repairing. So I left it there since my bf is studying near Sunway and it’s convenient for him to collect. They promised that they will fix it by today and get it done. I called and the woman said it’s not ok yet and she’ll call when it’s fixed.

I’m very sad and disappointed now. I hope that after I fix it, it wun have any probs anymore. If it has problem, I rather change to other phone :(

35.  miamy
January 6th, 2009 at 7:47 pm

Alexa, you’re having the same prob as well?? omgosh it’s so disappointing and like what aya said : it’s very heart breaking coz the phone is like.. new + cute sigh.

Oh yes, alexa, I dont know about your phone cuz I bought mine from authorised LG dealer in Sg. wang and i called them and they told me to bring the phone to Hello Service Centre in Plaza Berjaya which is opposite Times Square.

And the best thing is, I went there and told them about the prob with my phone and they told me to come and collect it back after 2 hours. So while I wait I went to Times Square to shop for a lil while.. :P Maybe you can try asking if you can send it there as well?

I guess they just reset the phone to default or something? cuz they actually cleared/deleted whatever I had in my phone memory..

I hope the same thing wont happen again TT.TT its a cool phone to have really.

So how’s your phone now, aya?

36.  Ms.Aya
January 6th, 2009 at 11:25 pm

Dear Alexa

Why is it that the 3 of us are so unlucky?

Have you got back your phone yet?

Let’s say if you have not gotten your phone back, try asking them whether so far got any other ice-cream phones also received the same problem. Because from what it looks — It seems that 8/10 are faulty.

Furthermore, only pink and blue has been on stock all this while. I don’t know about white because in JB, apparently still got no stock for white.

I wonder why our phones hanged… (Cries)

Dear Miamy

(Nods) It’s very heart breaking. Until now, I still haven’t received any call from the phone shop. This is so frustrating! I miss carrying the phone in my palm and all I have now is just the box of the hand phone!

Good for you, the phone returned back to you in 2 hours.

I think Alexa will have her phone soon. Definitely sooner than me because I have to wait for KL to send over to JB.

… This is the 3rd or 4th week I’ve been waiting. (Tears)

By the way, what colors did you all purchased? (.___.)

37.  miamy
January 7th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

omgosh! have to send it back to KL?? 0_0 mine is in pink btw. you know what, i just read in a forum and there’s this girl saying that most ice cream phones in pink (not sure about the blue ones) have problems, and the white ones are all okay. And when i bought mine on xmas eve, the dealer told me that white is not available yet. and one of them told me white is more expensive by rm100. could it be, the white one is slightly different or something?? is this is so i’d rather choose a white one :(

38.  Ms.Aya
January 7th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Dear Miamy

Yea. I have to wait for the new one to be delivered to JB.

I just got it by the way. Yay!

Is it for real that pink phones are the only faulty ones and that white is more expensive?

If I find out that white has 3G and can self-cam, I’ll kill myself!

That’s not fair, don’t you think so too?

My dealer said that if the phone spoils again, I can swap for a new one. Maybe if the white phone is available and has better features, then I’ll swap for white.

So your phone is ok already? Let’s say if your phone got problem again, then you can swap for the white too!

But have to confirm first whether white and pink got any difference.

Yosh! This is our battle plan! (Laughs)

39.  miamy
January 8th, 2009 at 2:16 am

lol (at your reply)
hahahha. Im not sure if there is any difference btwn white and pink but I reckon our unlocked ver. wouldnt work for self cam and 3G. TT.TT

But do you know actually there is LG Ice cream phone 2? which actually has 3G?!! -o- but the design is slightly different. try googling it out. :)

how did you work the MMS settings?
i tried going to the hotlink website but i can’t set it up

41.  Ms.Aya
January 9th, 2009 at 12:23 pm

Dear Miamy

I know that’s wishful thinking. (Laughs nervously)

… (Cries) What? There’s a second version of ice-cream?

Are you kidding me? … Wait.. No, you’re not. I just googled and saw it myself.

How can this be happening? (Tears) We just got our hands on this ice-cream phone.

Thanks for the info, now I’m going to one corner to weep.

… Let’s say it comes out in M’sia, would you buy it?

Dear Jenny

You’re using Hotllink, right?

Make a call to *100# and from there, follow the instructions.

42.  Jenny
January 9th, 2009 at 12:29 pm

i called and something just pops up and says, “Unexpected Data Value”

at the hotlink website I tried signing up and it wouldn’t go through.
when i tried to click on “Get Phone Settings” , my phone number wouldn’t go through either.

43.  Ms.Aya
January 9th, 2009 at 2:40 pm

The first time I tried that, I also got the “Unexpected Data Value” error. Then I tried again and it got finally through.

I can’t think of anyway other than this. (_ _)lll

January 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

Yeah ! The dictionary mode is a bit wierd, and the time for receiving mms is somehow longer then usual ?

What is it about the mms setting download that you was saying in the post ? (: hahas.

Oh ya, anyway, I’d always wanted blue, but Singapore don’t have it anymore, left with lots of pink, so I decided to take white ;p

46.  Ms.Aya
January 30th, 2009 at 2:48 am

Dear Yienshawn

In Malaysia, we have to download the phone settings for MMS before we can actually send out and receive multimedia messages. Does Singapore do the same?

Yea, I can’t seem to turn off the dictionary permanently. Every time I turned on the phone again, the dictionary activates again. Yours is the same too?

Funny… I thought white and pink are the hot selling cakes. Maybe Singapore has more blue-lovers[?] (^v^)/

Out of curiosity, what is the color of your keypad’s back light?

Eg: The pink phone has pink light, blue has blue … So white phone = … white light? (.__.)

Yes, you can sms in Korean language. You can also set the phone’s system language to be in Korean~!

oh i see! thanks a lot! hmm, looks like this phone keeps giving problems hurr… /: *sigh* erm, do you think it’s worth it to buy this phone? (x.x”) hahaha, ii wanted to buy this handphone but, still thinking whether should ii buy it… heard many people complained about this handphone… *sighh* ):

50.  Ms.Aya
February 9th, 2009 at 5:30 pm

It seriously depends on your personal preference. If you are apt to using phones like Sony Ericsson and Nokia that are abundance in features, then LG KF350 might be a let down to you because its functions are very basic.

But if you’re one who can settle with 2GB memory external (apparently if you insert higher than 2 GB, you might experience lagging problems), 3 mega pixel camera with no auto-focus, no video calls and plain themes, then it shouldn’t be a problem to you.

This is totally up to you whether you can live with this phone. (^-^)lll

51.  {♥}SnowCrystal
February 9th, 2009 at 8:19 pm

oh well, ii dont mind about the function~ HAHAHA. anyway, ii bought it today. LOLs! and, ii love the phone! it’s so kawaii! :D
Love it SOOOOOO MUCH!(:
hope it wont give me any problem… x.x” pray hard that it work smoothly. HAHAHA! :D

anyway, thanks for your advice.[:
HAHAHA. ^^

Ms Aya. i just bought this phone last Sat.
But im quite disappointed with the battery life… Its like it can only last for one day T_T.. i dun think i use that much either….
sigh..
on the first day i can understand coz it must be due to the excessive usage.. ive been playing the phone for few hrs
but yesterday i didnt use much but this morning.. the phone ady no battery sighh..
is it normal? or is there something wrong with the battery?

55.  Ms.Aya
February 25th, 2009 at 11:58 am

Dear Mimicry

When you say your phone battery ran out, did it really die out and indicate ‘Low Battery’ or just dropped to 1 or 2 bars? (.___.)

Because to what I know, the battery seems weird sometimes. One minute it drops one bar the next, it goes back to full. (x___x)

Suppose this is not the case, then perhaps your battery is faulty. I think you better go back to where you bought it and claim for a new battery. There’s no such thing as a phone with the life span of a day. There has to be something wrong with it and it’s their fault, not yours. (u_u)

I’d stomped back there and demand a new battery because this is not what I paid for, right? (T_T)

Even if you get a new battery, I think it can last at least 4 days depending on how heavy your usage is. I suggest you minimize and conserve it by lowering the tone for the keypad and maybe switch off the flip sound or so. (_ _)lll

I hope this helps you, Mimicry. (Cries with Mimi too) (;__; )

\(^v^)/ Baa! Stay happy! It can be solved, I’m sure!

hello Ms.Aya, I stumbled across your website while searching for reviews of the LG KF350 Ice-Cream Phone, and by your first review, I thought it looked great and seemed to work fine! But now I read this, I’m scared about buying this phone, because I saw the advert for it on YouTube and fell in love with it n _ n
Now I’ve also seen the advert for the Cyon Ice-Cream 2, and I’m confused. Do you think I should go ahead and buy the first Ice Cream phone? Or wait until the new one comes out? Because if I buy Ice Cream 1, it will be from eBay, and if it malfunctions or breaks then I don’t know if I would be able to get it fixed because I live in the UK! I’m so confused now~ ._____.”’
It’s so unfortunate that so many people are getting problems with this phone ; ^ ;

57.  Ms.Aya
March 27th, 2009 at 10:39 pm

Dear Superiorginkgo

You plan to buy on ebay? That’s hard to decide because there are risks involve. If your phone malfunctions then it would be problematic, troublesome and heart aching for you.

I really can’t help you decide and it depends on your luck I guess. What color do you plan to buy by the way? I read in forums that pink seems to be the most vulnerable while the other 2 colors don’t seem to have much problems.

I can’t confirm this.

Baa~ Perhaps Ice-cream 2 might be better?

Who knows… (u_u)

58.  superiorginkgo
March 28th, 2009 at 2:47 am

To Aya,

I know, I would be so upset if anything happened to it after spending alot of money for it. Perhaps I should wait until the Ice-Cream 2 has some reviews, and if that is no good either, I’ll try and find another phone T __ T”

And about the color, I initially wanted the pink one, like yours, but now I’ve read about those ones in particular being the troublesome phones, I thought about getting a white one. But maybe I should just avoid it all together. . . ?
; __ ;
I’ll just have to admire it from afar D;

Thank you for your reviews, they’ve been so useful for me, and I’m sure many other people ^^

59.  Ms.Aya
March 29th, 2009 at 11:41 pm

Well… Good luck in resisting the temptation. I advise you not to think so much about it and for your sake, let’s hope Ice-cream 2 (or a better phone of your preference) will quickly come out and available in your country. (^-^)/

60.  superiorginkgo
March 30th, 2009 at 8:08 pm

Yeah.. I think that’s what I’ll do.
Let’s hope so ! (:

And I hope your phone get’s fixed okay, or if they provide a new one for you I hope it doesn’t cause any problems~

Take care ^^

61.  Ms.Aya

hey.do any of you know how to delete all the smses at once in the ice cream phone cox the max no of msg the phone can hold is only 100 plus and i dunno how to delete all msg and i have to delete one by one:S
and is there a way to off the key pad sound without making the phone mute as in put it in silent mode
sorry for asking so many qns cox im new to the phone

63.  Ms.Aya
April 7th, 2009 at 12:15 am

Here’s how yo delete messages all at one go.

Go to: Options — Mark/Unmark — (1) Mark those that you wish to delete (2) Mark all; means select all.

Then you press C and delete all the selected messages to perish into the void of emptiness!

Keypad sound:

Settings — Profiles — (Choose which profile you wish to edit) — Options — Edit — Scroll down to KEYPAD VOLUME and lower it.

Actually at the main screen, you can lower your keypad volume by clicking the side up and down button.

This should help you.

thx!and do u noe if we can mute the camera sound when taking pic?

65.  Ms.Aya
April 10th, 2009 at 6:13 pm

You can’t mute the sound of your camera, sorry.

If you want to sneak and take a picture, try using SOUND 2 that goes DING DONG~

Because people might assume that your phone has a new message. “Chik-Chiak” is too obvious. (Laughs)

hiii
i am thinking about getting the lg ice cream i was going to wait to get the lg lollipop but it seems like i will have to wait until forever for it to be release other than in korea

ima just scared cose i heard so many problems about it but im thinking of getting a white one and apparently that doesn’t have many problems!!!!

67.  Pistachio
May 23rd, 2009 at 9:43 pm

Hello, do you know whether the pistachio(blue) coloured one has problems? And also, is it’s music quality good? Hope you reply asap, Thank you :D

68.  Ms.Aya
May 25th, 2009 at 10:06 pm

Dear Pistachio

Well I heard that pink has the most problem. But can’t be too sure if the blue ones are free from defections.

The music quality is good if the phone is flipped open. Closing it would sound softer.

69.  SPITxFIRE
May 27th, 2009 at 2:24 am

hi Aya, the white one have boring orangie yellow light. =.=
by the way, do you have problem with the call log? My one have problem scrolling them when there is more then 7/8 call in the log…
Still wondering if I should bring it back just for this. I heard that the Ice Cream is known for hanging and unable to turn on.

70.  Ms.Aya
May 28th, 2009 at 7:12 pm

Dear SpitxFire

Yea… It would be better if the keypad lights were white.

I don’t have any problem with my call log because to begin with, I don’t let my log accumulate that much. (Laughs)

If it bothers you a lot, you should send it back for amendment. Or — if you don’t want to make a trip to Zitron over a small issue, wait until it hangs then. (^-^)v

… Ok… That was a mean thing to say… (_ _) *Slaps self*

71.  SPITxFIRE
May 29th, 2009 at 2:01 am

actually you have a point there. It really isn’t a big deal as i can still view the log if I clear it up everyday or I view it in details mode. So many I’ll safe the trip for the worst. kakakkaa!!!

May 30th, 2009 at 10:58 pm

hi ms. aya
so quick question what phone company do you use your phone with because i live in the states (california) to be exact and i was wondering if it works for tmobile and i want it SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BADD lol :] but like with all these reviews im so nervous to get one what should i do
(thanks in advance XD)

73.  Ms.Aya
June 1st, 2009 at 1:31 pm

Dear Running man

There’s a movie called “The Running Man” in which Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in right? (o_o)

Baa~ (u_u)

Well… I wouldn’t know if it works for Tmobile. I think as long as you get the unlocked version (3 megapixels, no 3G), then it should be able to work in California.

74.  running man
June 1st, 2009 at 9:20 pm

lol thanks for the helpp
XD
there is a movie called running man hahahh i didnt know that thx though i just hope it dosent hang ><

hello! i;m here to ask u smth regarding the ice cream phone ;)
i’ve bought it 6days ago and it started hanging. it hangs about 1 time per day D: D: D:
sobs!
the only thin i can do is to pluck off the battery and it restarts
because i cant off it when it hangs D;
but i;m worried about the battery being damaged if i pluck it off with de phone stil on D:

but,other than that this phone gives me no problema at all. – just the hanging.
do u think i should change a new one or just sent it for repair? > <
also,did u register yr warranty card?

thanks for yr help! :)

76.  Ms.Aya
June 25th, 2009 at 8:28 pm

I think you better get it repaired. If you were to ask for a new one, it could also end up being a defect so it’s best to get the problem fixed once and for all.

Remember to show them your warranty card and receipt of purchase.

77.  Mishell
July 9th, 2009 at 8:39 pm

Hello :) I happened to stumble on your site! How’s your phone going :S? I’d like to buy this phone soon!

78.  ice cream
August 14th, 2009 at 1:51 pm

my advice: send it back to the store or whatever, saying that it was the first shipment. your phone was obviously part of the first shipment, which failed miserably…they did a recall a couple days or a week or two after there was the mass problem

79.  Jem
August 31st, 2009 at 10:50 am

Shame to hear yours hang :S I’m thinking of getting this phone, but am worried about that… After repair is it fine? Or does it happen again?

80.  Ms Aya
September 4th, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Dear Jem
No, it doesn’t hang anymore — fortunately. (^-^*)lll

Same probem with my phone… Today it broke down. And onlything it shows ir KF350… Soo… Don’t buy this crapy phone… I got it about 3weeks.

82.  audrey
September 13th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

Ohhhh my!! I was seriously tempted to purchase this phone in white!!! But now i don know whether i should still continue with my decision anot!!

How??! Is the hanging thingy still continuing?

83.  kioko
September 14th, 2009 at 9:18 pm

To Audrey,
I got this phone too (exacly white) so I can give u some opinions if u want (and hope Sheep wont mind hehe) It depends where u got your phone, if u get it via online shopping, then there’d be some risks but if u get it in a proper shop the phone would hopefully be perfectly ok. Like mine, there isnt any problem till now (I have mine for a few weeks already^^) except a tiny one which can quickly be solved by taking out the battery and putting it back in haha

84.  Ms Aya
September 16th, 2009 at 4:41 pm

Thanks, kioko for answering to Audrey.

This is so what I want. For other readers to reply and share their knowledge rather than just waiting for sheep to response.

Tell you, it can kill sheep to see comments piling up sometimes. (x__x)

Baa! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! (^v^*) !! SHEEP HUGS !!

85.  kioko
September 17th, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Sheep, you’re welcome^____^
*hugs back*

I just thought there’d be enough comments for you to reply,so since I have the phone why not I give some help (though I am not sure whether she will come back and check the answers..)

86.  CandiceIceY
September 21st, 2009 at 4:36 am

It’s me again~ *hehe*
I have a big problem~
I killed my lg phone but I still got warranty until 2010
So now my question is whether the “hello service centre” the one in Plaza Berjaya will refund a whole new phone to me?

87.  Ms Aya
September 22nd, 2009 at 6:32 pm

Baa…I think you should get it to any LG centre and have it fixed rather than substituting a new one. Never if the new one is also faulty.

88.  Nadia
October 2nd, 2009 at 3:35 am

I’ve got a white one last Friday and I must say, I love this phone to bits!!
So, so, so ADORABLE!! Slim and stylish.. Feels kawaii when using it. I accept the fact that the function is just so-so.
No problem encountered yet and praying, it stays good forever.

February 21st, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Hi, so I’ve read practically nearly all of the comments about this post. But I’m still not sure whether I should buy it or not – because everyone has been saying it gets ‘hanged’. I like it so much though! My friend has this phone as well but it hasn’t stuffed up for her yet and she’s had it since last year now. I want to get the blue one, the blue one is good right? :S I’m scared if it hangs I can’t get it fixed since I live in Australia.

- Please reply soon.

90.  Ms Aya
February 21st, 2010 at 5:59 pm

Dear Annie

It should be fine. I haven’t heard of anyone getting their ice-cream phone hanged for a very long time already. I guess only the first batch were faulty and problematic.

If it hangs, I think you can get it to any phone shop to get it fixed because by now, shops would have this phone[?]

Well, sheep can’t simply say for sure other than:

1. Haven’t heard of this problem in a long run
2. Those who bought outside of Malaysia and Singapore doesn’t seem to have this problem. At least, never complain about it here…

91.  Annie
February 21st, 2010 at 6:30 pm

Wow! Thanks for replying :)
Then I shall buy this phone, this is such an old phone now. But I still like it. Btw, your review for this phone was very detailed. It answered everything I needed to know.

92.  Ms Aya
February 22nd, 2010 at 12:33 am

Dear Annie

Good luck~ I hope you won’t get any problems with the phone.
And thanks for reading. Glad to know my review was of help~ (^x^)

93.  Annie
February 22nd, 2010 at 7:20 pm

Wait, so what happened to your Ice cream phone? Sorry, I’m not update with your posts, since I just started reading it recently ^O^”

94.  kioko
February 23rd, 2010 at 12:23 am

@Annie
Sheep has cruelly abandoned her Ice Cream phone for a new Samsung touchscreen phone lol.

…just joking!

I think she wants internet in her phone, thats why she changed her phone ^^

95.  Annie
February 23rd, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Thanks for replying Kioko :)
I currently have Samsung f480 but I really want the Ice Cream phone haha!

96.  kioko
February 23rd, 2010 at 10:32 pm

You’re welcome ^^
I am thinking of getting a touchscreen phone but I bet if Lollipop 2 gonna released outside Korea in the future, I’d definitely get that but Ice Cream is a pretty phone!

97.  Ms Aya
February 24th, 2010 at 11:04 pm

As kioko has said — I abandoned my Ice-cream phone. (Laughs)

Well, I need a Wee-Fee phone, that’s why. If Ice-cream had Wee-Fee and various themes, I would hang on to it for another year. (Laughs) Anyway, I kept it in a nice box. Makes me happy to know I still own a phone like this. (Laughs)

98.  kioko
February 25th, 2010 at 2:55 am

LOL!
I really impressed my friend today by showing her my customised LED wallpaper. She has a bit of fun designing one as well! Ice Cream is so much love!
Oh yeah at least u still take care of it ^^

99.  Annie
February 26th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Today, I played with my friend’s Ice Cream phone. It was soo cool! I was making my name and playing with the LED light. I really love the buttons. kioko, what colour is your ICe Cream phone? :O

100.  kioko
February 27th, 2010 at 4:43 am

@Alice

Ohh yeahh, thats one of the highlights of Ice Cream ^^
…my only complain is that there’s too less space so I cant write much, but recently I did the word “Love” it’s so nice!
Mine is Vanilla, aka white ~~

101.  Annie
March 1st, 2010 at 4:36 pm

Oh wait, so you have had this phone for how long? Because my parents said that if I buy this phone, I have to keep it for two years! I’m scared that this phone is not a good phone that lasts long. :S

102.  Ms Aya
March 1st, 2010 at 4:46 pm

She had it for more than 6 months already, I think. (Laughs nervously)

It highly depends on your preference, Annie.

This phone is pretty basic and no theme customization so you might get bored in time to come.

As for durability, I think it should be fine. I still switch on my Ice-cream from time to time and it operates just fine. (^-^)

Then again, I think it’s best you hear from kioko since she is using the phone currently.

103.  kioko
March 2nd, 2010 at 1:47 am

@Annie
I am too lazy to count but I got this phone in August last year ^-^
I had my last phone for 3 years and when I asked my parents whether I can get LG Ice Cream, at first they didn’t let me before my mum gave up lol!

My phone hanged once a few days ago, but this can be solved by resetting the settings (make sure you backup everything, like pics/contact list etc, on the memory card first!)

Like Sheep said, it really depends on how much you like this phone actually. Remember this phone is not function-based, I buy it cause of the pretty appearance and its LED functions too. I really like it and I think I don’t mind sticking with it for years haha

104.  Annie
March 4th, 2010 at 7:44 pm

You guys are so nice for replying to me, hehe. Um, yeah, I think I am capable of keeping this phone for two years. But all my friends think I am not capable ==” puts me off! When I get this phone, I shall tell you guys. ^__^

Annie.

105.  kioko
March 4th, 2010 at 7:47 pm

@Annie

You’re welcome. It’s great that I can help you out, cause Sheep did the same thing when I’m deciding whether I should get this phone too (in fact I learnt of this LG Ice Cream cause of Sheep’s review^___^)

If you have any problems, you can keep asking me or Sheep here ~

106.  Kimmy
April 19th, 2010 at 8:56 am

Hello,

So in a month I will renew my phone contract and today I saw that the place had the ice cream phone! Yay! But now that I have been reading reviews, I found two reviews that pointed out negativities in it. So I am questioning whether or not if I should get this phone. Should I or should I not? Please and thank you! :)

107.  Ms Aya
April 19th, 2010 at 10:44 pm

Dear Kimmy

Well, I’m not sure if the current batch of Ice-cream phones are not defected however, if you are interested in Lollipop, you might want to go for that since it has more stuffs, like themes. Though I haven’t found any reviews regarding Lollipop.

Ice-cream is an alright phone that’s if you don’t mind a very basic phone.

108.  WanWay

109.  Ms Aya

Dear Wanway

I sent the phone to LG to have them repair it. After the repair, the hanging stops.

Sorry To Be Very Bad At Phones…

But What Does It Mean If Its ‘Hanged’

112.  Ms Aya
October 21st, 2010 at 8:38 pm

Dear Frankie

Hanged means — it freezes for some time, unable to navigate and do anything..If lucky, it will restart otherwise…just freeze until you pull out the battery.
