    I was wondering if an unlocked LG White Chocolate (KG800) will work with Cingular's wireless network, anyone have any idea?

    I'm a cellular phone interoperability engineer.

    The LG Chocolate's design is stunning, but it offers nothing special in terms of software. The touch pad is really annoying at times and the camera is only 1.2MP. Multimedia messaging is also hit and miss.

    In all, I really love the design of the Chocolate but I don't think I could cope with the phone itself.

    Make sure it supports the 850mhz band, otherwise, you'll have severe coverage issues in certain areas. Cingular is comprised mainly of 850mhz towers, with a few 1900 ones here and there.

    Granted, you'll have coverage areas anywhere because Cingular is absolute crap.

    Yes you can

    I have a chocolate kg800 and I'm with AT&T (formerly Cingular). My phone is unlocked. However, I would advise using Verizon Wireless (the company that supports this phone) or considering a different phone because you may have issues.

    Like, for example, I can be in areas with very strong reception, yet my signal is weak or non-existent, prohibiting me from making or recieving calls. Another bad thing is there is no speaker phone option, and the phone gives absolutely NO warning sound when the battery is about to die.

    I also cannot match pictures with people in my contact list (so that it shows their picture when they are calling). Nor can I send pictures (via multimedia messaging; I don't have blue tooth). I've also had problems connecting to the computer via the usb cable.

    Yea it's a sweet looking phone and touch screen is nice, and its also an mp3 player, but I think blue tooth is an essential to have with this phone.
