All reviews i've read have praised this phone, that's why I bought it. I've had absolutly no problems at all and think it's a fantastic phone.
to the guy that has people complaining about poor call quality. Any chance you can try a different phone at the same spot your getting poor call quality? It might not be the phone itself you know. Perhaps your network has a problem with a phone mast in your area? Are they complaining that the calls are quiet or crackly? no offence but if the call is quiet then are you sure you are talking to the mouth piece (you'd be surprised how many people don't!).
If you feel the phone is faulty, take it back to the shop and try another. I wouldn't change the phone for a diff model though as nothing comes close to this in my opinion.
LOL, Ive only read the reviews now and its hilarious how smart people can be. Like NO slot for a sim card. In Kgogobongoland where Eric lives, phones are obviously so advanced it feeds from stupidity and doesnt need simcards.LOL. The phones only coming out in South africa now, so now opinion yet, but from what u guys say, its a waste of very material.
Take it back and complain - most reputable companies will allow you to change it if it is not up to the job.
I bought this phone last week as I thought it was better than the Nokia 6280. Have an 18 month contract now which I can' get out of. No one can hear me when I talk, no downloads etc wish I hadn't bought it now
dave, which network are you using and which country are you in?
Do you normally get good signal strength or not?
Is it definitely the phone to blame? If so it sounds pretty useless - there is nothing worse than people at the other end of a call complaining about call quality!
This phone looks great, feels great and works well except for one small thing, the call quality is appaling Ive had lots of complaints from the people Im talking to. Its got to go back. No point having it if it doesnt work well enough
if there is no slot for a simcard how will this work wit my cell phone provider (rogers) or (fido)
FOR ERIC!!!!!!!!unless you live in california,nevada,or washington do not buy this phone! reason why is because this phone does not support cingular wireless's 850mhz frequency in the rest of the states. The mentioned states happen to use 1900mhz so it would not be a problem there...i'm telling you, your reception will be in the low 10% while being next to someone with a cingular phone who's phone is up at 100% right on the same spot next to you....is a state thing not a cingular thing... :)
p4u - Can you give us some more information or a link to the software that enables a change of colour for the lights from red to blue? Please!
If your having trouble connecting the phone to your PC, try making sure that the phone's screen is on before plugging it in.
The other thing about the C key, i've not had any problems with mine, all of the keys are responsive for me. I have found that if you press the end call button (on the right hand side of the phone) you are taking straight to the home screen so you may not need to press the C button repeatedly to get back to the homescreen.
Still a kick ass phone though :)
I just got the phone a couple of days ago...It was the first phone since years I really liked for its design.
I have to say it's great. It is easy to use, but even though there were some drawbacks about this phone after reading the posts here, I still bought it and I still have no regrets (for now).
I'll just get straight to the problems I have occurred:
- The pc synch has been a big problem for me, it's because an earlier post said you have to turn on the modem in the menu of the phone (p82) and then plug the phone to the pc. It took a lot of tries before it worked.
- because the screen turns of it is sometimes difficult to know when I have received a sms, but that's a minor problem for me.
- a problem is however the volume...it can be very loud, and I absolutely don't mind that, but the volume is still loud when you turn it to one. If you turn it to zero, it has no sound. It can be annoying when I use the headphones, because it can be at some point just toooooo loud. But others might like this...
What I haven't read and am wondering is whether someone has troubles with the "c" button on the right corner. It doesn't react very quickly like the other buttons, but when I get it to work and I keep "pressing" it, it reacts very quickly. So the first try is always a hassle for me.
Despite these problems...I haven't found other drawbacks and I still like the phone for it's functions and design.
LG Chocolate is really an elegant phone and I liked this model. This is the first LG phone that attracted my attention.
anyway i have one problem with this model and that is I cannot connect to the internal memory of the phone even when i activate the modem! after installing the usb modem, programs can connect to the phone, but before the syncroniation ends up, the phone would be disconnected and pc would not detect it until again you reinstall the driver! LG PC Sync too could not connect to the phone! I do not know what to do! anybody can help plz?
How did you get this red to blue software, is it a link you can post here, or would be willing to share with us? Email me to discuss. Thanks
i have managed to get some software from korea that allows me to change from red lights to blue lights, has anyone else been able to do the same?
I got mine 2 days ago.
Bought it without contract in greece 400 e. its a beautifull phone. Looks just like an i-pod!!! its really a magnet for other peoples eyes! functions are great. it comes with a carrying case, headset, usb cable. the camera although 1,3 mp is fine, the menu is easy to use and the ext keypad so nice to use.about cons now, the phone gets very dirty and u can also see tiny scratches after some days of use, and there is a problem too with answering a 2nd call due to the ext keys lock them selves after a 3 sec period. i think its a phone for gentile use yet its more beautifull than anything else on the market at the moment. u should buy it!
