When I have finished using LG Phone Manager, I click disconnect and my phone hangs. Says something like "Syncronisation finished". The only thing i can do is turn the handset off then back on. I'm running the LG Phone Manager on windows XP. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
This phone is great, but has some ordinary features. The camera and video stuff ic cool, as is the internal software, etc. Of course, I have gripes as listed below.
The included software is Windows only, so sorry Mac users, you can't even transfer files using USB to a Mac - pretty ordinary. Had LG included removeable storage, this should not have been a problem.
The included software is OK, but the file transfer stuff is stupidly complex and not intuitive. You must exit all applications on the phone or it plain wont connect. You must use the Phone Manager as described by James below, and manually navigate to what you want to transfer. Dragging files to your PC deletes them from the phone (it should copy them), right-click and drag let's Windows copy them rather than just move them. When you connect the phone, it should automatically show the content and a button to sync with the PC PIM (haven't these guys used a Palm???)
Overall a great phone but with some annoying drawbacks - 7/10
a 3g phone without bluetooth? missing the point somewhat no? laptop/palm/internet. else ok, if a bit slow and hanging with desktop sw. also deleting all inbox and outbox texts after connecting to desktop. v bad. battery life good. ui good.
Here's the answer to the PC connection problems everyone's having. Go to LG Phone Manager, click contents, select Transfer menu, select Set Com Port, then click the USB option. For some reason it defaults to IRDA and will keep going back to that setting. Then, you should find a COM port in the COM port list with an asterisk - and that's the one you need to select. NOTE: This is SEPARATE from selecting the COM port in the synchronisation manager. You need to do it in the LG Phone Manager. Really poor implementation, but there you go, that's how it's done.
I have a GX10 and im looking to upgrade my habset.... Is this phone worth getting??? HELP!!!
i am also having a problem connecting to my pc i cant even get the drivers to go on please please could somebody out there help me .
I've had mine since the day it came out and I can say it's the best phone I've ever used
Hey can anybody let me know where i can get the 8110 for less than £150. Cheers
This fone rockz. Its by faar the best and l8st fone out rite now. Its got almost everything at its highest levels. But the reason i said almost is becuase it comes with no games. wich leaves that to you and that is UR duty but the prices for all of the good games on 3g wap are unbelieveable. Premier manager 2004 and Racing Deluxe both cost 8 pounds each! The other thing is that the phones a bit tooo big. its still not bigger than the Sharp GX'S but its big adn the other thing that lets it down is the weight,pretty heavy, its heavier than some of the 1st fonez out!! but at 126 Grams its still not really that bad. Overall the picture quality. THE MAGNIFICENCE! and well i dnt think i've forgotten anything!!!!!!! Well- c-ya!
Ive seen splinter cell on other phones. is it possible to get it on this phone? if so could you send me a link or sum details. Thanks a lot (please reply. I really want this game)
Just one problem wiht the camera.
When you have the camera facing the user's direction, the image that the camera captures is a mirror relection and there is no way to flip it back.
This phone is sweet. But I just dont like how you can't upload java apps! I am outside the 3g area (remote Australia) so can only use voice/sms function...!! So I cant use half the phone now! Come on LG, bring out a way to upload through the computer!
Wonderful phone. This phone has all the features what i dreampt about having in my phone. excellent.
If anyone is having problems connecting or transferring files then contact me at my supplied email and I will try and help.
ive had this fone a week now n im lovin it, however i cant figure out how to get mp3's onto it, can n e 1 help?
I've had the LG U8110 for over a month now, the only problems i have is that the battery life is too low i have to charge it every other day!!And also if i'm on the phone to some1 & i've been talkin 4 a long time, say 1 hour or so, the call mysteriously cuts off?!!- n e 1 else have this problem?this has happened several times! Plus i'm having problems connecting the phone to my PC, the none of the com ports have an asterix next to them, otherwise its a great phone with xcellent screen quality. btw - hw many songs max can u have on this phone (mp3)?
I sent this message to Foxytam, and it should help you if you are having trouble connecting your LG to a PC.
If you are getting this message when you are trying to connect the phone to your pc using the phone manager software that comes with the phone then you need to make sure that you phone is not in any of the menus or any applications also in phone manager you need to click on the Transfer Dropdown menu and select set COM Port. From there select usb as communication method and select a COM Port, the one you will need to use will have an asterisk next to the number. If none of them have an asterisk next to the number then you may not have installed the drivers from the cd correctlty.
You should now be able to connect using the connect icon in the top left.
