Prada LG Phone

Has anyone got one of these? are they a girly phone?

I got one today free with my Orange contract and it is the biggest pile of sh1te ever, I cant use it at all so im going to stick to my old Samsung and flog it on Ebay..

Has anyone got one and can actually use it? sending a text message is practically impossible, and it took me about 4 hours to text everyone my new number as I couldnt find a multiple messaging option. The only good thing about it is it looks shiney!

Anyone on here got one or want one for that matter lol

    Looks dreadful.

    Should fetch a good price on ebay though.


    yes it is, cant really complain thou as it was free. I think ebay is the only answer for it, I dont know why anybody would want to use it thou!

    Its hard enough for me to input a post code on a sat nav, never mind texting in the same touch screen way!!

    Yeah I've had one for a couple of weeks now

    I quite like it to be honest , I agree , Texting can be difficult , but I found once you turn T9 on , learn how to use the touchscreen , and get used to a few quirks , then texting becomes less of an ordeal , and just as easy as any other phone - By learning to use the touchscreen , I mean getting used to where to touch it , classically people think they are touching the screen slightly higher than they really are ! sounds silly I know , but it is true , if you touch the screen at an approx 45 degree angle , you'll actually be making contact with the screen about two or three mm BELOW the point you are aiming for , once you know this you can either compensate , or try a squarer angle of "point" - again , sounds tricky ,but it will become second nature
    I can now text on the prada the same speed as I can on any other phone

    It does have some redeeming features IMO , the OS is slick & quick , it is no smartphone , but then IMO it doesnt pretend to be , it is what it is , a fashion phone
    and I do think it looks good , and is thin and light enough to go in a shirt pocket on a night out

    The only thing that annoys me , it that they have a touchcreen UI ,but it is not functional - ie , you can only touch selected items , you cannot work the whole OS via touchscreen , instead you actually use touchscreen scroll buttons , whereas it would be nicer to be able to just touch the item you want

    But then , if you want functionality - LG is the one of the last manufacturers I'd look to

    Lol Yes I noticed that..

    What do you mean by the scroll buttons where you cant touch the item you want?

    feel a bit silly now ,as I can't find the features where the UI didn't work

    They are DEFINATELY there somewhere - but I am damned if I can find them now ! - ( my excuse is I have been using my N95 a lot lately , so am not 100% familiar with the Prada )

    I will find them and report back !

    My other half has one, I have used it and have to say this is the first touch screen device that I would enjoy using. Texting is easy once you get used to it.

    My missus finds it very easy to use - but she has long nails!
