Buy the phone from carfone warehouse as they are unlocked from them.

Go for the cheapest network and be ready to pay £10 top up if paying by credit/debit card or £20 if paying by cash. This is to stop box breaking etc.

Also beware some networks dont allow refunds or upgrading if you dont like it. Ask for the blue returns booklet b4 buying.

Some cpw also have demo models to try out.

Also look at the new lg viewerty edition.

The original Prada Lg does have issues.

Its really hard to upgrade the software - currently you have to send it off.

Battery life sucks.

The incoming call alert is permanantly set on ascending.Personally i missed loads of calls even when its all cranked up with various ringtones.

You cannot set a ringtone to alert you of incoming text messages and the 4 supplied get a little tired after a whil.

DO NOT use the supplied case with the prada as it actually scratches it !

it is a finger print magnet.

The screen does lag when going from menu to menu.

The screen is very reactive.

texting takes some time to crack on this and some of the way you go from capital letters to small font is a nightmare.

The fone does look good.

Their are forums out there specifically for prada users = just google.

Yes ! you can unlock your LG Prada from carrier lock i.e by using unlock code . You can get unlock code from any of the online vendors like Theunlockspot.com
Once, you have unlocked your LG from carrier lock, you can use it withg o2 and any other GSM networks internationally .
