Thumbs down Lg Optimus One P500 Motherboard Dead Within Fortnight after Purchase

Don't know whether this is the right thread to post this

I had Bought a LG Optimus One P500 from Spice Hotspot a fortnight ago. Initial impression was Good as this is my first Android.
Yesterday the phone crashed and entered into Emergency Mode and would not Boot. Today i went to LG Service center only to find out that the Motherboard is Faulty . Moreover they need some days to repair it as they don't have motherboard in stock.

Guys should i accept the Repaired Mobile or should i ask them for a New Replacement?

Did you verify whether the contacts got synced with Google after syncing? I'd go and check it in Gmail before going ahead flashing a new ROM. BTW, if you have a nandroid backup, just restore it to get everything back.

Just checked out MIUI ROM. Impressive stuff, but switched back to CM7 Now charging to 100% and then will wipe the battery stats which I didn't do yet after installing CM7.

Guys, one help.

I tried video call (fring app) from my galaxy s2 to my friend's galaxy ace. ace showed some device limitation error but the s2 did fine.

What could be the limitation for ace? It sports a front camera too, or is it because of android 2.2?

Bad deal. HTC after initially refusing to upgrade the Desire beyond 2.2 will now release only a limited upgrade to Gingerbread, with many apps removed. Should have bought the Desire S instead.

P.S : I too use an HTC Desire (bought @ 28k just a few moons ago)

Wasn't the milestone bootloader cracked way back? I have both Milestone and Atrix. The milestone runs CM7 beautifully and now waiting for Atrix to get the GB update.

The Desire that's being sold by Spice has the S-LCD screen rather than the AMOLED screen that the original Desire had.

Perspectives!
Well, with the budget I had, my options were defy, galaxy ace & p550.
I think I got a fantastic deal

On the gingerbread update, I don't need those default apps (plurk, stocks, peep, footprints etc).
Won't miss them at all!

Again, at 15k I didn't expect a AMOLED screen. Read somewhere that its got Sony SLCD panel, and am impressed too.

zoomingbhat's experience should tell us not to fool around (i.e root, change ROM, etc) for a few days after getting a phone. Otherwise warranty goes for a toss.

Guys, i recently bought the Nexus S from letsbuy.
I transferred my contacts from my Nokia using bluetooth, now when i add a new contact i don't see it where my contacts appear. Its visible if i search for it and select the option "search all contacts" how do i fix this ? Also does anyone else have the problem of phone automatically putting a fullstop if you use the spacebar after selecting a word form the predictive text ?

Good news is that LG has accepted to Replace my handset with a new one.
Will be getting it in 2 working days.
