My Battery last me 3 days with a few calls a day and using the camera throughout the day. Have POWER SAVE ON and thats all you need. Brightness reduction is not necessary..But my Phone is Unlocked from Virgin Mobile maybe the software is better??
as like the rest i love this phone but the battery life is rubbish i charge it for 16 hours and it will last about 6 hours i mean evrything else is good on it but the battery isnt but i found that to save your battery is to put your profile to silent and brighness to 20% thanks
I have owned this phone for quite sometime now and up to now, I cant seemed to find satisfaction. For the message alert tone, too short. For the battery, too fast to get drained, no matter how you set the power save on, or lessen the brightness. And it's not responsive, I mean, it will take few minutes before you can access your "my stuff"~or gallery in laymans term.
my battery is great! i can be using it for 2 straight days with out charging it
Even tho i own so many phones better than this....i cant seem to let go of this Viewty...I have phones worth over $800 and i bought this for $250 and im using this phone the most...sad but true! :)
The LG KU990 Viewty may not have allot of features todays phones have...eg..Quad Band, Wi-fi, Over 2gb support, etc..... But i have found this phone to be the best phone i have owned till now. I have also owned Nokia N95 GB N96,N85, 6110 Navigator, Samsung Omnia, Blackerry Bold, Blackberry storm, LG Renoir, LG Secret, Sony XP1...and more
If You have the Power Saver ON on the LG KU990 Viewty, it out-does all the phones i mentioned above on battery usage. And ive been making calls and using the camera all day..
With regards to battery life, the key is the have power save switched 'on' and if not then ensure the screen brightness is low....this really helps save the battery
battery life is really a problem. this is only for non tech savvy people.
I fell with my phone in my pocket and my screen is shot to hell it costs me like 50 euros to replace it...and to think i wanted an Iphone , they service guy told me it would've cost like 300 euros to replace the screen.
I'm so excited abt this phone...Finally ! I'll b gettin this "talked abt" phone tomm 06/02...Hope I dnt have any issue(s) like Ya'LL....lol...
I'll be getting the black and ma girl b getting the silver....Ya ! so wi roll !!

I got it around a year back.Me too happy with the features, but sad with the battery's performance. It started draining quickly in the 1st month itself. Now I talk for 5 mins and the batt goes dead.
I think I will have to use it as a paperweight as stated by someone.
Hello i have a question about the ku990 i have purchased. I have activated my message alert for one minute and im having trouble to cahnge it longer. Can you please help me
I've this phone for a year and I must say it's wonderful but I seem to be having a problem with the battery, anyone experiencing the same problem? I have to charge the phone everyday, even if I didn't play music the previous day
i had this phone for just over a year, everything is nice about the phone. the camera is impressive, the clarity of the screen is great. But one thing occured after a year or so of using it. The screen stops responding. There are many other users with this issue. You touch the screen, and response somewhere else. It happened to me once or twice, then it started working again. Then after, it just stopped responding at all. now its a flashy paper weight right now. I'm not dissapointed with the phone and its fuction, but i wish there was a fix for the screen.

I already Mute Touch tone & make the haptic vibration response off. And it is working...I think it will go longer now. actually I used Flash for taking some pictures at first & used bluetooth for transferring my stuffs & Contacts from my previous set.

Jus... morei'm from the philippines, I have my viewty for a year now, at first i had the same problem with you. The battery drained very quickly and i have not customized my phone setting yet when i bought it. First, I had my globe sim card inserted on and the problem went on and on, but after i changed the sim into "smart"(network provider here in our country) sim card, my viewty started to work very well and the battery lasted for 4 days with more on music and texting. Maybe my first sim card was starting to malfunction. Second I set my phone setting into the ff: brightness (20%, power save (off), network mode (automatic),touch tone volume (2), touch vibration (1). Thirdly, test your phone for other sim card from other network.
