just wondering before i get this phone does it have lots of memory? enough to have videos songs and pictures on it? please let me no sum1???
Can some one please tell me why with a dongle my phone will not send info to the computer, is there a certain type of dongle or software that i need as 3 dont give you much info
10MB is not enough.
That said best off getting a microSD card as the primary memory storage and use the 10MB for bluetooth, then save those bluetooth files into the microSD card.
You just about save anything you want on the microSD card.
heyy um i havent got this phone yet but i am really looking at getting it.. i was fine with it at the start then i started to read these comments and now i am pretty unsure.. the main thing i am worried about now is the 10MB internal memory coz i was looking at putting heaps of songs on there;; i noe that i can get the microSD card but can someone plz plz plz tell me how long it would take for the 10MB to run out if i take lots of pikz and put about 3 songs on there?
Ok here are most of the answered you need for the LG U310.
1: USB Cable
The LG USB Cable you need for this handset is the
Product Code: SGDY-0011503
Basically this USB cable is the same one for the LG KG800 (GSM Chocolate Slider)
If you can't be bothered trying to track down a USB Data Cable for this handset, Bluetooth dongle will work.
I use the ASUS Bluetooth Dongle and it does everything including using the LG Internet kit to get wireless broadband modem connection going.
Buy it from UMART (Austalian Computer supermarket - really cheap and good quality products)
2: The LG U310 will work with a Sandisk MicroSD 1GB memory card.
Memory cards are pretty cheap now with 512MB MicroSD costing around $19.95 Australian $$$
1GB MicroSD for $29.95 Australian $$$
3: In order to get the front screen on more than 15 seconds, you can't in idle mode, only when you have the music playing (with or without ear phones) and when your playing video on the front screen (you need ear phones connected for front screen video playback)
The LG U310 is data locked in terms of MMS, Access point and Browser profile (but not JAVA account profile).
So even if you want to change the Browser profile to point to a different Planet 3 page like My 3 everythime you press the Planet 3 (top rightsoft key) button it will still load up the main Planet 3 HOME) page.
The LG U310 is of course firmware locked to 3 networks only.
That said, any world wide 3 USIM will work in this phone as its firmware locked to 3 networks.
If you put i a non 3 USIM of course it will be SIM LOCKED.
There is no bypass method around this as there was with the LG U880 that the end user and not an unlocker could do.
I don't think the unlocking boxes like Furios Gold ect can unlock this handset just yet, but its being worked on.
Just note: in the basic package it only comes wit the standard 800mAh slim line battery which will not do more than 2 days of real world use and will probably kill itself after 8 months like al LG slim line standard batteries do.
Overall its a great cheap way to get into 3G at the Australian prepaid price of $229.
Only plays QCIF 176x144 15fps 3GPP video and of course QCIF MP4 Video with AMR audio.
Audio wise it will play MP3 (even with 22.05khz sample rate which is great if you want to make the Mp3 a small as possiable without loosing audio quality, just encode at 128kbps which gives you 80kbps playback, so basicaly a 4MB MP3 at full rate will be 2MB at half rate)
Overall, I'll give this LG U310 at 7.5 out of 10.
Its not perfect but for the price its very good cheap entry point in into the world of 3G.
Regard to the Data cable.
It doesn't come with the box BUT u can buy them vai order and there is a Bluetooth Dougle USB to support all model
the memory card is calles microSD and it would cost around $30aud for 1gb of memory so its
nice phone until we realised that although they provide pc sync software 3 do not provide a usb data cable, they dont offer a cable you can buy and the phone is not listed on the LG site so you dont know what cable to order!!!!!

Hello i was thinking about buying the LG U310 and i was thinking insted of having a 3sim card can i put my optus sim card in it?
I want to get this phone but dont know if it's any good. I also wanted to know what
the camera is like.
I've got the phone ... just regarding the connectivity (to upload songs, etc). You need to get a bluetooth dongle (looks like a USB hard drive).
You then need to go into the bluetooth menu on the phone and try to connect to your PC. Depending on the software that comes with your Bluetooth PC dongle you should be told what COM port the connection is ... which is required when you start the LG PC Synch software - go to the connection details and tell it to use BlueTooth (rather that the default of USB!) & the COM port to use.
Hope that helps someone ...
i just recently got this phone and i like it, but the downfall is it dosent come with a USB and i would realy like to but songs on it.
Does anyone know how to extend the "text message alert" duration - it's cutting off my alert tune after about 4 seconds even tho the tune itse;f os about 15 seconds long.
does anyone know if you can get the front screen displaying permanently?
and also did you know that these handsets arnt game compatible!
