LG KP500 Cookie bugs - Calendar Alarms and Sync

Got the phone a few days back, and it provides a great user experience. However we noted a few bugs, which are detailed below. I would appreciate it if other owners of KP500 try this, and let us know if you also face the same bugs.
Bug1:
I used the calendar widget to enter some appointments and birthdays. However when trying to access a date from the widget calendar to see the appointments, the phone reboots. It shows the LG logo and comes back to main screen.
Bugs 2: Calendar entries:
1 .when I save any appointment either as an anniversary or birthday and set the repeat as annual, it puts around 14 days of additional entries for the same appointment in all the subsequent months - 14 in Jan, 14 in Feb and so on.
2. I then changed the repeat to once and saved it, but that caused the whole appointment to be deleted from the calendar
3. I saved an appointment as repeating weekly and it saved just fine. However if you give an expiration date for the recurring appointment, then the whole appoitnment is deleted from the calendar
Bug 3: Alarm
I have saved a second alarm on my phone. However when the 2nd alarm rings, it shows the name/text from the 1st alarm, which reads Morning Alarm
Bug 4: Syncing with Outlook
I tried to use the sync tools to upload my contact list. I tried to upload from Outlook 2000 on my home computer, and Outlook 2003 in my laptop. It does not work with either. It starts to sync, reads all the contacts in Outlook (around 293 contacts), and then disconnects connection to the phone and provides a message that 'Synchronisation failed', but does not provide any comments/feedback about why it failed

We are still checking out all the features and will post more bugs as we find it. I am however keen to know if anyone else is facing the same problems

    I'm Italian and I don't speak English very well. However I bought lg kp500 one week ago and I found the same bugs.

    I found another bug in the Messages. I save new words in the vocabolary. When I power off the phone and I restart it, new words I saved are disappeared!

I wouldnt recomend this phone at all! Have had it 4 months now and had so many probs including:
1. Sometimes the alarm comes up but doesnt make a sound or vibrate so obviously i sleep right through it
2. It will randomly turn itself off
3. At least once a day when someone texts me ill get the same text two or three times. I'd blame their phones but its not just one person!
4. It randomly was diverting all my calls at one point although id never set it to do that.
5. The sensors dont work right. WHen you go on the internet if you turn the phone to one side the screen also turns. Ill be holding mine the right way up but the screen will still turn, it needs a lot of shaking to correct itself.
6. I cant move anything about on my screen. I had a few speed dials up but got sick of accidentally ringing them, they wont move anywhere on my screen so i cant put them away. However it lets me drag other speed dials onto the screen (but not back again so my screen is packed with speed dial boxes!)
Do not buy this phone!!

What is the PUK code for an lg cookie KP 500?


Hi missjess2010,

PUK means "PERSONAL UNLOCKING KEY"

Regarding to problem you encounter first, You need to call the phone company that sold you the phone card to unlock the phone.The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong PIN 3 times.
Second, You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.
Third, In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.

Note: The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone. If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.

Hope it helps.

Thank You for using Fixya.

I don't know how to find my puk code for my LG Cookie / LG KP500


PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). More information on unlocking phones will be available here in the very near future. NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, use the links above to navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator.

I have an LG KP500. My son borrowed it to text and used the end of a pen which has scratched the screen. Can I use Displex to remove the scratches on this phone? I have seen conflicting advice. Some saying...


Hi,

I am aware of the risk of using Displex. Usually it is used for more traditional ' solid ' screens than light one.

If you wish, you can try but make sure, a small Quantity.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I dont know what my puk code is and my phones not redgisterd


No Sir, the PUK code is only under the authority of your service providers.
The only way is to contact the Service providers.
They will first authenticate some info regarding the owner, which should be you, then they will tell you the PUK.

Regards.
