Hi everyone I have this phone on cingular network and i'll say is the best lg i ever tryed, battery runs for like 45 when am ussing the cingular video, the speakers sounds like they gonna crack with the max volume. Display is 65k. should be higher. By the way i get better reception on 3g here in Miami than gsm signal. Overall is decent phone compare with the price. I'll recomend it.
I got how to set mp3 for ringtones.
when the mp3 ringtones in computer must fill full all the properties infomation.then send to you CU500 and set to ringtone.
other then trouble assigning individual ringtones, i have to say this is a really solid phone. havent had a chance to mess with the umts (no it isnt hsdpa) but the mobi tv is pretty fun to use. i am really impressed with the speaker quality compared to my w810. i dont really like LGs UI but other then that i have toadmit there isnt too much to complain about with this model. other then a blackberry, it si the only phone (other then the w810) in my cingular store i can strongly recomond right now. good buy imo.
well my dad got this phone about 3 weeks ago and at first i thought the features are pretty decent but the only problem i don't like about this phone is that you can't set Mp3 as a ringtone except if it is less then 20 seconds which really sucks! =( but other then that the quility is pretty good.
Quite possibly the most solid GSM-family device LG has released in quite some time...the only issue I've seen with it is the battery life, not quite up to par with other phones I usually work with, especially when moving back and forth between a GSM and UMTS coverage area. Calls and data services work very well in either, although there is a bit of an issue carrying a call/session from GSM into UMTS, the handoffs there haven't been worked out real well, but something to work on here in the States.
Can u record your own ringtones . and how?
i put it as ringtone and it says content not avelable
Can you talk on the speaker phone function on this phone with the phone in complete closed phone form.
I got a LG CU500 6 weeks ago. The phone its great and its easy use my music like ring tones (When you know how to do it), but Iíve had seen that the phone has serious problem with 3G signal. The system itís new from Cingular and when my phone gets this signal in some areas itís almost impossible make a call or receive it. Sometimes the system says "the number has you been dialed is not a working number" Last week I spend more than 1 hour with Cingular technical department to see what is the problem. I hope my friends you are not having this kind of problems with your phones.
Does anyone know of any known bugs on the LG CU500 cell phone? I love mine all except it drops calss frequently. I'm going to go back to Cingular and see if it is just my phone or common to this model. I know it's a device problem because I've had Cingular for years and never had this problem until I bought th LG phone...
i just bought phone but i can't change ring tone to file wma or mp3 it show me the file is big.
looks pretty good for me but i wonder why a such of advanced tech. like hsdpa phone only have a 65k resollution screen while any other network even in a lower standart offers handsets with 265k screens
I just bought this phone and was extremely happy with it until I tried to assign the individual ringtones I downloaded and paid for, to each of my three sons. I have always had a seperate ring tone for each son and am now extremely disappointed that even though it is an advertised feature of the phone it doesnt work. Has anyone else had this problem? I have spent HOURS on the phone with Cingular trying to get this fixed and no one seems to be able to help me.
I have had great luck with reception on this phone. I think that phones like anything you buy have lemons among them. I have never lost reception even in places my old nokia phone would.
hey does anyone know if there is any way that i can see if a person has read a text message or not? email me if you do. firstname.lastname@example.org. thank you!
I am getting this phone as a replacement for my Motorola Razr....how will it compare in the features? Will i like it?
Does anyone know how to sync up outlook contacts and calendar with the one the phone?
Also, does it need any software to be used as a modem via mini-usb cable?
I welcome replies directly to my email address: sendmail0 (at) gmail.com
this phone is a crappier version of the samsung Z510..
does anyone agree with me?
