keypad feels rubbery
small font when texting
sound breaks up when volume is turned way up
no headphone included
no after-market accessories
only plays first 10seconds of an audo clip as text ringing tone
available only in black
feels and looks cheap
lots of java games and applications from getjar.com, zedge.net, mobile9.com, among others. file can be saved in PC and transferred to uSD.
no noticeable slowdown of unit when micro SD is used.
good for its price range.
For those who are using the phone as internet modem, you could check globe's website regarding 3g-hsdpa.
Themes are not available on this handset. And yes, i guess there's no shop or repair center that has the program to swith the unit from one network to another (open-line). It's either globe or smart, neither both.
There are a lot of games that can be downloaded from globe wapsite, though there are some that are not compatible with the handset which also apply to other cp's. Most games are available at gamezone.
this is my 3rd and a half month with my u250, problem is, i cant download the free games in the globe site. it always shows that the file format is not compatible.WTF, lol
Can't be configured for use as modem to access the internet when connected to a desktop computer.
@former nokia user
what do u mean adjust the volume to normal?
what is normal? 4? 5 bars in the volume indicator?
there are no such things as LG KU250 Themes yet
Unless you have a device to hack its file
so far there is only one
but still there are no applications that could
permit writing on the phone's systems.
LG KU250 or U250 is a qualcomm phone..
Too much Volume could damage LG stereo speakers be sure to adjust it to normal
I have 2Gb memory... tried 1500 games w/o
3G and bluetooth requirements
No probs with screensavers and wallpapers
Although a delay of millisecs for too much
category folders.. it didnt fail me
DVD and Video rips to 3gpp
Opera mini 4 beta works fine
use Protocol HTML to download links
500 Applications most not english
Camera Snap sounds could be silent
if simultaneously said with AHHEMMM...
Do not use 3G network settings unless video calling or surfing the net..
hey you with call problem...
Go to Menu
then Network Mode
then Choose GSM 900/1800
hope that it solve your problem
i knew that spec from many tabloid stated that kind of phone had great fitures and support after sales service. but for me in indonesia although it had low price it still unaffordable for me to have it. i really love that but ......., to any one who had much money please sent me one unit! thank for reading my writes..
i've had this phone last july with globe postpaid plan. when i started using it to call there was quite a problem because the one i'm calling can't hear me clearly...i thought it was because of the poor signal but the signal bar was full. i haven't got time to visit the repair center for LG phones. anyway, i dropped it once and then finally, when i use this to call someone, they can hear me perfectly well, it lasted for a week though. now i'm having difficulty with it again. also there are instances when it says that there is no signal when all my friends using globe have signal. hmmm...i don't know my phone must have a problem. if there are 2 bars left on the battery icon, i'm having a hard time to send message it keeps going to the outbox folder. errrr!!! i don't know what's wrong with it.
do you know where i can have this phone repaired?
I have just got this phone from Globe yesterday and yes it is really user friendly. There's no need for me to read the manuals as I was already having fun using the features while on the way home.
Here's a list of the Pros I that liked about this phone:
- It is light and small and easily fits in my pocket.
- The interface is good and customizable.
- The back camera is great and I loved the quality of the pictures it took. It has additional controls which changes the effects and quality of the photos.
- The mp3 player works fine and the music plays good on the speaker phone.
- The video playback is good. I uploaded mp4 video files and I loved the quality.
- I liked the rubbery feel of the keypad.
- SMS creation and management is easy.
- I had no problems installing .jar files like games though some of these files aren't compatible with the unit.
- It connected easily with my computer and functioned as a USB drive.
Here are the cons:
- The SMS font size is rather small. But this isn't quite an issue with me maybe except for those who have difficulty reading the small text.
- The sound on the headset is rather weak and I could barely hear the music while I'm on a vehicle.
It could have been much better if:
- It had FM radio.
- The unit has some sort of flash or torch to aid in taking pictures at night.
- The faces or casing could be changed.
All in all, this phone is great for its price. I got it for P5,950.00 and I got my money's worth. I'll be keeping this phone for maybe two years or more depending if a new upgraded model of it will be released.

Guys, help please, I have this unit but it is not open-line to any network. I bought it in Globe network. Right now I am here in Israel. I have tried many times to some service centers here to open my line so that I can use it here, however no one can open it to another network. The Globe network here is not functioning... Help please.
in what folder is the themes of the LG KU250 stored?
i've been browsing the installer but i haven't found it yet.
thanks and good day.
This is a very nice phone, I have this with my Globe Plan, but Ive lost it... Ninakaw kasi... Pero sorry na lang sa nakabili at gumastos pa siya para mapa-unblock... Pinablock ko siya sa Globe (The unit and the SIM)... Sana dun sa mga bumibili ng GSM (Nakaw na cell), pwedeng wag na kayo bumili ng ganon... kawawa naman ang mga nanakawan (hu hu hu hu)... And its sorry also for me...
The phone is ok. Got it from my plan (SMART)... Functions are ok, texting is easy because it's almost like a nokia.
it's cool. but can anyone tell me how to put the camera on silent mode? the sound it makes when i take pictures is really LOUD.
