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 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!!

How i install the theme in kp500


24 theme for the LG Cookie KP500
Bauer's back, this time on your mobile. Enjoy the show 24 hours a day with this 24 theme for the LG Cookie KP500 Published on Apr 3, 2009
24 remains one of the most popular TV shows in the world, and the peril is still riding high for Jack Bauer. Get in on the action with this 24 theme for the LG Cookie KP500.
He may have only lived seven days over the past eight years, since the show started, but he's still a force to be reckoned with. This theme includes several promotional poster images from the 24 series, plus some additional images of Bauer himself in trademark post modern hero pose.
24 is still one of TV's best programmes, so why not bask in its glory between episodes with this 24 theme for the LG Cookie KP500.
You can't easily change the more involved elements of your LG Cookie's interface, but changing wallpapers is very simple. Just download the theme file, unzip it and then transfer the files to your phone via Bluetooth.
When your phone receives the file, it will ask you whether you want to save the file or use it as a wallpaper. Select 'Use as wallpaper' to tranform your LG Cookie.

If you don't want to use the wallpaper straight away, you can access the image later from within the phone to set it as your wallpaper.

Do this by selecting the image in the gallery, and tapping on the screen. A menu bar will come up on the bottom of the screen. Tap on the fourth icon along (the portrait image), and you'll get the option to set the image as a wallpaper. Tap 'Set' on the bottom of the screen and the picture will become your wallpaper.

NOTE: If you're having trouble transferring the wallpaper files from your computer to your phone or making them wallpapers, try again because the LG Cookie can be a little temperamental when reproducing images as wallpapers. Be patient!

How can I sync my lg cookie kp500 to windows7, because the disc only works up to xp, which is the lg pc suite and is there a software that makes any sync possible?


You could give this one a try. I have it running on Vista, to sync my wife's LG Secret. Hope it is neither device nor platform specific.
Cheers! Carlos

LG KP500 Cookie bugs - Calendar Alarms and Sync


I have a lot of problems with the calender. when I first got the phone, a week or two ago, I put my work houres in it, and the whole week, no alarm. then weekend came and a small icon above of a small calender appeared, and the whole weekend it kept on going off 5 times in a row at 7.30, the time I needed to leave for work in the week, when it didnt went off at all O_o today, I had to leave at 8.30 and it went off at 8.30 but also at 7.30 again, while that's not an alarm in my calendar for today.. after work my cookie suddenly went out, I had to take the battery pack out to "reboot" it, now the calender icon is gone, I wonder if it will go off at 8.30 tomorow like planned or if it won't go off at all anymore again..
Another thing I noticed is, that when I put in a date from one houre to another is that it doesn't state the correct houre (when I put in 8.00 to 16.00 it shows 00.00 to 16.00) I put in until I open the actual appointement.
strangely enough, my cookie just lighted up it's screen as if I touched it out of itself and even more strange, the calendar icon up there is back..!
