i've had the cu500 for almost a year and for the last 2-3 months the battery life is whack. i charge it for 4 hrs. and 20 mins. later it only has one bar. also, the camera doesn't work well like other phones in the dark. other than that, the phone is excellent.

CU500 is the same as the TU500

Although it may take a 2gig card, you will only be able to use 1gig of it.

1gig is the limit for the software of this phone :)

Question, I recently dropped this phone into water and although I cleaned it up ery well a weird thing happened. The phone now only works when it is hooked up to the charger and shows as charge complete but as soon as I take the charger out the phone dies and does not turn back on. Other than that every single button works perfect, what would cause this? anyone know?

I recently purchased this phone, as agreed with most of us, the phone is great if you do not want all the bells and whistles. I had problems with battery life before I found a solution and that was to turn off the dual network mode on the phone. Someone posted it on the AT&T forum. AT & T has the new 3G system, but this phone constantly looks for both networks and uses battery power to do so. It looks for the best signal.

This is how you can changefrom 3G to 2G.

Press277634#*#

Then go through the menu:

5.Modem Setting
2.Network Mode
1.Network Mode
2.2G only

Then, after you have done that, if you are having problems with the earpiece volume also, hit your back button and go to:

7. GSM Speech Ver
Select 1. EFR Speech Pref

So, after doing all that, I still get poor reception. Ready to throw it at a wall.

I decided to take it apart and found the phone has an antenna board on the opposite cover shell of the main baord and it has a little metal clip that touches the phone's main board. The main board has a tiny square metal surface the clip touches when you close the two phone cover shells together.

I realized then, the clip was not properly touching the board because of my bad reception. I bent the clip in the proper angle too where once I close the two shells together, the antenna clip would touch the board surface much harder. I was even thinking about soldering a small wire to the antenna board linking it to the main board.
You know manufacturers make many phones and sometimes in the process somethings do happen. Next time I will solder a wire to the board.

Now, I have swapped back to dual network mode and I will find out how well it works.

This is not a solution for everyone, but this is something that I found out on my LG CU500. Now I have reception, where I did not have reception before.
