Features available

Unfortunately the LG KG800 isn’t capable of supporting the “Photo Capture”, “Moola topup”, “File access”, and “SMS out” features. This is because the phone doesn’t support the necessary Java APIs to make these features available in MXit.

The version of MXit which is currently available for the LG KG800 offers as many MXit features as possible for the phone.
