I had this phone since 1st week of August, it was brand new, and two days ago, the phone hang up, then i waited for about 10minutes, and it is still not responding so I removed the battery, place it again...and its not working anymore, even I charged it...it is still not reponding or opens..I really don't know what to do..since here in the Phillipines there are few distributors of LG phones...and few who repairs of course..
The phone seldom hang up like once in a week...all i do is remove and put back the battery..but now it did not opened...hai...
i hope it does have a reset button like PDAs or easy to repair like Nokia...im so sad...i dont have money right now to buy a new phone...
I don't have this phone, I have an LG CU500. But to your question about LG phones in general....my LG is the best phone I've ever had (I think this is my 5th phone).
I have just read through 3 pages of posts.
The common faults are: battery, keypad, and display. Having been caught out by this one the best advice I can give is to try to get your money back. That will fail because LG are not going to admit that they have a problem. Don't send it off for repair even if it is in warranty because the repairers will only come up with some lame excuse to exclude it from warranty repair, they will want about £18 from you even if it's just to send your phone back. Don't claim on your insurance because you will have to pay them an extra £50 to get another LG chocolate that's just as useless. So your next move is to accept the loss, throw it in the bin or sell it as faulty on e-bay for spares/repairs. Then get a different phone from ANY another manufacturer(even Alcatel). As you can guess, I am bitter and twisted and so so ANGRY.
Nice phone but I wouldn't call it chocolate, something else that is brown and sticky(not a stick) would be more appropriatte. I had this phone on the Vodafone network for about 5 months. Compared to other phones that I have had on the same network the reception is very poor(yes, I do live in the back of beyond). I have been told that some phones have signal boosters. If that's true, then perhaps this doesn't have one. Recently the keypad stopped working along with the display. Sent it off for repair and was told it was due to water damage. That was a bit of a surprise because it's never been used in wet conditions or dropped in water. Repairers say that condensation is enough to cause the condition. Insurance only want to replace it with the same so I called it a day and bought a Sony Ericsson.
I bought this fone sometime last year. It got issues...... signal is non existing at times, keypad doesnt light up at night, internet works as it pleases, BATTERY HAS TO BE CHARGED EVERYDAY!!!!! I really like the fone, thats y i bought it, but sometimes i jus wanna throw it aside!
I'd just like to say that I think this phone is awesome!! Well, I don't actually own this phone.. but I've heard on the grape vine that it's real noice!!
What is with the people saying that they don't get enough signal? Um, hello? I don't think a $200 phone won't give you any signal? Maybe you live out in the middle of nowhere or in an unknown surburb without a Telstra Ariele?
And what the HELL is with the people saying that they can't hear through the thing?!! HELLOOOO, people!!! DON'T YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR EAR HOLES ARE?!! Once again, as if a $200 PHONE (YES, a phone, a thing u can TALK TO PEOPLE THROUGH) WOULDN'T LET YOU HEAR YOUR CONTACT?!!!! Once again, perhaps it's coz you live out in the scrub? && you also talk into the bottom part of the phone.. I mean to say, I have a crap phone at the moment, and one of my mates has a $60 phone, and they can hear me when I talk to them through the thing! And they can get signal.. even when they're driving out in the middle of nowhere. (True story...)
Okay, I just had to say that coz I think those people need to either treat their phones a bit better, or don't buy a phone off E-Bay or from the Kwik-E Mart or some crap store. And maybe they should learn where their ears are and how to use the thing. =]
Bye everyone, xx.
ive been reading a few of these comments and im thinking of getting this phone.
is it worth getting it?
is it really that bad?! or should i wait & find another phone if theres been problems with other peoples phones???
its not really a comment its more a question: Is the LG really a bad phone as people say it is cause i want to buy it cause it looks so slick nd sexy. and i desperately need a phone and i need a answer before the week is over pls. I need a phone that has all the features eg.internet,bluetooth,usb connection,enough space. so if this phone is not a good phone pls feel free to give suggestions on one that is but not too expansive
I bought this phone in Decemebr 2006 and I am about to hand in my FOURTH one due to contining issues with it. This phone is useless and unless you want a fashion item (which most phones are these days) forget this phone. There are reportedly software issues and issues with the slider mechanisim of this phone but LG don't want to recall it.
Suffice to say, I am changing it now for a phone that actually works!
Hi, This phone is really nice and I would recommend it to anyone. I love the colour and the slick feel, oh don't mention the features is the best. So, go right ahead and buy this phone you won't regret it.
so r there light or no light on the keypad?? I called up LG and ask and they said the light is not very luminous, does this mean it will be very dim???
HI, i have this phone too, but i don't now if i can change the message tone (from my gallery) if this phone have this option, PLEASE TELL ME.
DONT BUY IT
i have had this phone for about 3 months.
the touch screen is annoying.The buttons are horrbile to text with AND the signal is crap !!!!
I got this phone a few months ago. I find that most people are unhappy with it, but I think it's great! Especially since I practically [ACCIDENTALLY] flung it onto the sidewalk and there are no visible scratches and it works fine! Sure, it has it's set-backs, but what phone doesnt?
Just a quick question...
Anyone else having voicemail problems?
It doesn't seem to work on mine...
Can i record or save phone conversations in this phone? Has anyone used this feature in the phone?
can u guys help me verify if the keypad(the one with numbers and alphabets on it) has any lighting on it.... i mean the keypad and not the touch sensitive screen(red colour lighting).
