I am traveling to New Zeland. Can I take this phone and get a sims card and use it?
I have purchased for my Mother(age 77) 4 years ago. Easy to use, handy. Still works. I am using it by now. Simple and is very easy to use as a TELEPHONE.
I've bought it for my mother around 1.5 years ago .She's 70 years old !
This phone has a low internal memory . If U take ~18 image , the internal would be full.
Also sometimes this phone would be dead ! That's nonsense but U have to eject battery to reset it.
[deleted post]UeOgCp Thank you for your blog.Thanks Again. Awesome.
CLDboi I cannot thank you enough for the article.Really looking forward to read more. Want more.
guyz u know dat every phone isn't a smartphone..beliv me this awesome piece of device just by once took me to the smart world..its simple.. I could download thousands of apps compatible with this.. Though this isn't a smartphone, those apps made it a smartphone..almost a smartphone..
My brother bought this just as it was announced and 6 months later, it came to me.. He used this as delicately as a cat but i used to make this my slave.. But this is a miracle guyz the phone is still resistant to my hard use..
Belive me, with time the slider ribbon is damaged and sometimes the display goes white..but certain times, the display comes back..
Even this post is being sent via this amazing LG-GU230..
This is AWESOME..
I bought this mobile 2 years ago and I still use it I have now to but he is the number one
i had this phone for a year, and now my mom using it. this phone is awesome, battery can last for a week, love it ...
i dont like it when it comes to internet because it cant stream and has no flash player, it also has a small internal memory...cant wait to dump it!
KYanNZ Thanks for sharing, this is a fantastic blog article.Really thank you!
It’s me again.
After almost 3 years, this phone still looks and feels like new. Not scratching on the outer case and the keypad looks and feels as if it came right out of the box. It still runs great and I have not done a single repair to it, all this while being put under heavy use all these years.
After reading through the forums you have all posted and comparing them to my experience with this phone, I do have some minor reservations. This phone is a bit stubborn when it comes to playing certain files. Regardless of all the formats stated on this and the manufacturer’s site, my phone can only play 3gp formats. Even then, the 3gp format must be of a specific type otherwise the phone simply tells you that the format is ‘not supported’. MP4 format it also unsupported too. To be fair, I have ensured that all the necessary audio and video encodings are according to the specifications. Perhaps LG could point out suitable software to correct this? Even LG’s PC suite didn’t help with this issue. It plays all MP3 files though, so at least I still have my tunes.
I have also noticed that the same phone is being sold differently. Some of you wrote that the phone came with a free memory card; others also wrote that it came with the data cable and/or in some cases it came with both. My phone came with the headphones only. Since I received neither a data cable nor memory card it seems to me that there are no exact rules as to the content of an LG GU230 pack. This might explain why not all specified formats can be read by the phone. It seems that the Specifications placed on this site and also stated by LG are generalist of what this phone might do depending on the type purchased. Since my phone was purchased personally from LG I do not suspect that I bought a cheap copy-phone.
I still adore this phone though and I indeed to keep using it for a while.
i like this phone coz its very easy to use and nice to use when texting and calling... the battery life is the best for me... it lasts long before it drains completely however the sound when the battery's draining is very annoying, it cant be silence in the settings.
joe, 27 Jun 2012how can i get the phone to play videos on youtube dis handset is not 3g.thats utube not supported...
Tbh i kinda love this phone. 4-5 days txting and calling and i still got battery! This is the phone i need! :D
You can't get the battery cover off because they a have a device under the battery that detects water. You got your phone wet and the devise puffed up and put pressure on it.
