    I tried updating the OS version but the first step where you had to install the LG mobile support tool to your PC doesnt work. I am using a Lenovo Laptop which is running on windows 7 home premium. Whenever the tool is installing, the installation begins and then disappears from the screen. What do I do?? I am really keen on upgrading my phone. :thinking:

    Don't use the LG Mobile support tool, it basically sucks.
    Use the KDZ Updater.

    To backup ur contact go to
    contact then click more you will find import/export, tap on it then export to sd card, thats all,to restore ur contact just click on import it will automatically scan and option will pop up, select that and wait 4 few second, then u are done,
    i upgraded os 1.6 to 2.1 by reading android forum, its great.
    try it.

    Updating to 2.3 is very simple. Follow the instructions carefully as per this thread. Good luck!
