Hi Guys. I have LG VU p895. I love this phone. It's a beast. However, ICS needs to be updated to JB. Below is one issue I am facing.
1) I get a 'mobile is not registered' error when I try to check if there are any updates OTA. Does any one have any clues. I live in Melb, Aus. Is that the reason as P895 is not officially released in OZ.
AnonD-74353, 24 Aug 2013When I restarted my phone, the issue of inserting SIM on my LG Vu, it still not working, makin... moreYou need to take ur sim card to a special place where the size can be reduced,so that it can fit into the phone,cos the phone uses micro sim,thanks
I love everything about this phone except the fact it is using ICS.
I emailed LG customer service asking for Jelly Bean update and they said it is gonna be released soon, I personally don't believe them anymore and I think this phone is gonna be my last LG mobile phone I'm going to buy , only because the lack of updates.
blakspyder, 23 Aug 2013Did you try restarting it with the sim card inside? When I restarted my phone, the issue of inserting SIM on my LG Vu, it still not working, making only an "EMERGENCY CALL". Later, my service has been enabled and now working.
guyz pls tell me the correct features of this phone
is it good to buy or not???
the best gaming phone.. playing GBA emulator Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and PSX emulator Final Fantasy Tactics War of the Lions.. enjoying hours and hours of playing..
Had this foralmost a year now. I'm so satisfied with it.Awesome features and great for browsing and downloading really fast.. Iconsider it a must-have! Hope more people will be aware of this model..
Don't know why the other brands seem to get all the publicity. More power to LG optimus Vu!
mehdi, 18 Aug 2013it's fantastic ... i love LG :)hi. im looking for one of this. pls tell me where did u buy it? thanks
When I opened my phone with SIM card inside, it says "No Service", then "Service disabled", and then "Emergency Calls only". Is this the SIM-lock device or the network not yet ready to operate so I can call and send a message?
suvo, 10 Aug 2013i am using this phone,its awesome............I am using this phone...its awesome...very good design & build quality...very good specs in this price range...watching videos & surfing is absolutely fun
OK, but I bought the VU for LG had announced jb for the first quater of 2013. In the meantime I use annother device and my next TV will not be a LG anymore.
If you realise, Optimus G, L9, L7 was given JB. In fact, L9 too. Reason is because of the chipset. Qualcomm guaranteed its chipset and allows the mobile phone maker to allow upgrade to JB. For L9, chipset maker was TI OMAP.
If you realise, 4xHD received its JB update super late since its chipset is Nvidia Tegra 3. And Optimus 2X received its Gingerbread and ICS way later since its Nvidia Tegra 2. Same goes to Vu, which using Nvidia Tegra 3. Same case for Samsung Galaxy R, which stops at ICS, which is using Nvidia Tegra 2.
I just hope that Nvidia will just do something about their chipset support and allow phone maker like LG to do its prompt update. I think LG must no longer take Nvidia as its supply for chipset. No offence though.
