Hi to LG KU250 users can somebody send me a software of usb driver for ku250 i lack of software thanks
there is another easy way of transferring MP3's and pictures... simply use the microsd adaptor and plug on your card reader, then pull up the folders when you want to place it... then presto... simply drag and drop it!!!.... try it!. headset na lang ang prob ko.
For its price and functionality, i encourage everyone to get this fone! Now if only we knew where to buy the headset...
I was planning to apply for a gplan 800 with a free unit. But first i inquired Globe if i can just upgrade my plan  to 800 for this free phone. To my surprise since i have been using a post paid plan of 500 a month for more than 3 years now, i can already avail their rewards promo...options of gcash monthly or quarterly for 1 or 2 years or your choice nokia 5070 or lg ku 250 FOR FREE! wow!!!!!
but ofcourse my line will be locked for another 2 years....well no problem. atleast i dont have to change my simcard/number etc and do all those hassle things to inform my friends of my new number.
i chose this phone. i want to try other phone brands since ive been using nokia from the start. now im just waiting for globe's call regarding my FREE PHONE!
thanks for sharing me the good news about this phone..i am now more than excited to replace my nokia 6270 with lg ku 250.
[problem with nokia 6270 is the flex..just had it repaired and the flex was replaced..but only after 1 month and 4 days, its messing the display again.. :-( ]
your battery may have a problem or you did not charge it correctly. My battery lasts for three days with regular use.
I bought my KU250 from Smart. You may download the LG PC Suite from here:
I do not know if this will also work if you are using Globe but after downloading it, I was able to use my phone as a modem for internet and I was able to transfer files to and from my cellphone.
Hope this helps.
I bought it last June 22...
indeed its 3G for all...
but Im just wondering if the how long
should the battery last if its only on standby mode, coz mine lasted only 8hours.
Is this normal or my battery has a problem?
So that i could return my battery immediately..
Motorola has a 3g speed of 3.6 mbps
Nokia/ SE and the rest only has only a 3g speed 384kbps. Does this really affect the 3G performance of the phone? When one is using the video call using a 3.6 mbps phone and the person is using a 384 kbps phone, does it affect the video calling?
Does this phone make video calls? Can you make video calling on this phone? Thanks!
Ok I see that somebody succeeded to use a 2GB micro SD for LG 250. in CDR king 1gb is Php600. I have yet to check the cost of a 2GB.
Hi edz I just typed in google lg ku250 free downloads and there I got the software for the flash drive. Post your email so I can try to sent it to you if I can.
no, its so easy to download the program to synch LD with computer. I did not have a hard time.
Can anyone tell me how much does 2GB SD card worth in any Smart Communication Shop? Tell me in my email add. ty!
the font size is the same as samsung. in fact the software or gui is very similar to samsung. so if your a samsung fan then you will feel right at home with this LG.
to use your cellphone as a modem, download the LG PC suite at www.betterthan3g.com under the devices section.
got my unit last June 22 through a globe telecom postpaid plan. i like the phone though i'm still figuring out the features. My question is: does the phone come with software to install it on a pc? Mine did not come with any so i cannot transfer pics or mp3's to and from my pc. also, i want to know where i can get a headset for it. the guys at globe were no help in setting it up to send and receive email, much less connect to the net. how do i do it?
This is my first NON-NOKIA Phone.
I bought this phone just this afternoon from a Globe Hub in Galleria w/ 0% Interest for 12 months!!
That's only P500+ per MONTH!
Aside from the missing headset (2gb SD would be useless w/o it), it's a very intuitive phone especially I've always been a Nokia boy even from the 90's.
At 73grams, it's ergonomically slim (unlike 6300 or ultra slim edition which could be a torment when typing long msgs over the keypad)
This is truly a feature-rich phone for it's price and Ergonomically SLIM SIZE!
1.3 Megapixels (plus front cam)
Grab your P500 /mo 3G phone TODAY!! :)
One question though, 3G or GPRS Data Rates of GLOBE is freakin expensive at 0.15/kb = P150 PER Megabyte while SMART offers P10 per 30mins.
Where can I have this unit open lined?
tnx in advance! :)
