take a look now
Not bad... Only 11 months behind. How about an Incite or Renoir instead...?? And at that price point? Come on!! They were doing well with the E71, Touch Diamond, Hp910C all competitive pricing but this @ $249 (without promo)... Just ridiculous!!
So....'promo price' is just that? More aptly called 'introductory pricing'? I'm just asking for clarification that there's no 'data' pricing or such as we saw with Vision of previously eligible device releases?
Is it just me or does $149 seem a little steep?
Never had much great impressions from LG. TU500 bulky, meh, Chocolate (epic failure)., Shine...nice metallic, but same old ultimately...I'll play with this one for fun I guess...then move on.
I'm disappointed Treatz, no pre-unit for you to take your own pics and put up yet?
my understanding is unlimited on device browsing is needed to get the promotion priceOriginally Posted by bubble.tea
3 year: $149.99 (requires voice and unlimited on device browsing)
3 year: $249.99
2 year: $299.99
1 year: $349.99
I think someone said 'yes' in another thread, but just to confirm... will any data plan (not just on device mobile browsing [jeez what a mouthful], but excluding bb messaging/e-mail data plan) work to get the promo pricing?

my question would be, how crippled is it?
does it retain DivX, 120fps video, and most of its functionality, or did rogers strip it all away like it usually does?
i'm surprised they didnt advertise its durability... plus this thing's pretty cheap unlocked...
plus their red menus and such would look horrible on this device.
well it's not such a secret launch anymore.
way to go treatz...

120fps!!!!!Originally Posted by CxTd807
I'l stand by my statement of overpriced, if you must have 3G then sure wait for the NAM version, but the euro versions are sitting comfortably around $300USD new.
you really cant blame LG for how much rogers cripples/crashes LG products... my friends have the euro versions of the shine + Secret, they're perfectly stable and have no issues running. they DO make a good product, rogers just has horrible coders who brand LG's phones... I can see the Secret being crippled yet again by Roger's branding and firmware... which would make LG look worse again.Originally Posted by joninator
That functionality has been around since the LG Viewty, Rogers apparently only likes to take the Black Label series from LG, while ignoring all the other LG products...Originally Posted by bubble.tea
the blurb treatz posted (no offense, i'm just assuming its official advertising stuff from rogers so i'm not surprised a lot of the specs are missing) doesnt cover most of its selling points, tempered glass screen, carbon fibre backing, accelerometer (for games, cant remember if it had auto-rotate), touchscreen, DivX support, 120fps high speed video (replays much slower, so you get to film slomo), i also believe the KF750's equipped with time-lapse as well..
Another old phone, I played with it around 6 months ago courtesy of an italian customer, nothing fancy and more over, just another Lg, bring some N97, or anything good at a similar price as Vodafone in Uk, or the 5800, something current pls!
