p.s try pluging the fone into your machine, THEN starting the phone manager? dur!
would you try and open a usb flash drive b4 u had plugged it in? i think not!
I foun the lg 8110 very good for the first month, then when you suss that you can only use 3 to wap then you realise its a pretty poor wap service compared o others.All downloads are expensive and limited.
A good site to go to for cheap lg accessories is solware.co.uk.cheapest around.
Overall i like the phone and downloading animations to the image section is good.
For all you people out there, i have managed to connect my LG8110 to my laptop. To make the connection, u have to plug in the usb drive and then it will automatically install a few drivers (on xp it is automatic) once fully installed and it says your hardware is installed and ready for use, you then open up phone manager. click on Transfer on the file bar right at the top and then click on set com port. Make sure that usb is selected and the com port has a star after the number, only the com ports with a star will work, if there are no star's at all, then the driver is not installed and you will have to restart computer and reinstall drivers. One of the main errors people get when tryin to connect is: -
"failed to connect to the mobile handset, please check com port and connect in the idle screen"
First check in the transfer then com port settings that the port selected has a star after the name, e.g. COM6*
If it has, then try restarting computer then try again.
If it still comes up with the same message, make sure that your handset is on the MAIN SCREEN, not menu screen as THIS WILL NOT WORK, it will not connect if any applications are open, your phone has to be on the screen as when you turn it on. This should now connect your phone to the phone manager.
Once connected, you can only download mp3 files to the handset, you simply find the file you want to download, right hand click on it and click copy. you then go back to your phone which will be under my computer and double click on the icon, you then click on audio and this will open up a blank page in phone manager, right hand click in this page and click paste. Do not interupt the phone whilst downloading and if someone does ring you, then the download will cancel. The same concept applies to pictures, you copy and paste as you did with the audio files. Audio files are stored under audio when you click the multimedia option in your phone menu, to set as ringtone, go to profiles, then edit, then ringtune, then scroll left and right/up and down till you find your audio file, then press ok.
I still cant work out how to download video files to the phone because the format is very different to normal videos on computer, such as music video's. If anyone also knows how to work the audio/video/picture editor in the phone manager then please let me know. I cant seem to select the editor features in the phone manager.
If you are still having problems with the phone, then feel free to email me at: - Skater_Saz@hotmail.com
I will try to sort out any other problems you may have with this phone.
This is a great phone with excellent features. It took me a while to get it fully working especially the phone manager program. The camera quality especially pictures are great. I have a £500 sony camcorder, and the still picture quality is the same as my phone. I have used the camera a lot and once uploaded to my computer, it makes it a whole lot more interesting.
I am unable to establish connection between functional USB port on my pc and the LGU8110 phone. Asking me to set the COM port. Need help
Yeah i agree with everyone, a pretty crap phone. I cant get the software to work at all and the video quality is very poor. There is nothing i can say about three that hasn't already been said. Dont fall for the promises of cheap calls guys, stick with the established networks!!!!
I've been trying to get pictures from my phone onto the computer using the USB cable but it just won't connect. What is wrong with it? Is this happening to anyone else? And does anyone know what i can do to connect it? Please?!?!?! please email me!!!
I don't beleive that LG 8120 doesn't give the time details for the dialed or missed called... or can't put this annoying dectionary off, if you know, please help firstname.lastname@example.org
LGU8110 - Got some good features but has some really annoying things. The s/w, Phone Manager, provided is really crap. It worked perfectly on one PC no crashing at all. But on my new and fater PC, it crashes as soon as i go to Phone Manager -> Messages section and try to click on a message. no idea y!! Even when i send an sms via PC as soon as the message gets sent, it will crash. This didnt happen before! Also, there's no way to disable T9 text entry mode. it's alwz ON by default. For getting Internet, u have to manually switch between the 2 APN's. Battery Life is good and size and wt is too. Better to stick to Nokia, awaiting the 6630!
well what can i saya bout this phone? its software is confusing as hell. havent even got the fucker to connect yet. three are a joke! the dont keep to their contract agreements, and you end up being messed about, the phone is ok but thats it! i have have had many problems with it and it does cut off at the start of and part way through calls. REALLY CRAP. probably not worth bothering with.
phones not too bad, but i'm completely baffled at how to transfer pics from my phone to my pc, HELP!!!
What a joke this is the worse decision I've ever made by choosing to go on contract with 3 and this phone! You can never get any signal, cuts you off through phone calls constantly, my 500 mins are all going to waste! Not to mention the phone isn't all that anyway.
Does anyone know if you can get this phone unlocked? Thanks in advance. All help appreciated
This is the biggest shit I've ever seen and 3's the worse netwok I've ever seen!
Please please don't be fooled by the offers they try to give you on this network.
I am really pissed off with this shit, unreliable as hell. Won't call out unless I have full signal and that is rare, crashes frequently, features boring, cuts off half way through phone calls, flip mechanism sticky I tell ya if you get this it will be your worst nightmare fuck 3 and their shitty phones I'm going back to Vodafone and Nokia 7610!
No No Nooo. Thats it. Had enough. Three calls lost today. Twice dialed then just cut off. The phone is attractive and has very good features. LOOK BEYOND. Stick to other networks. 3 is pee.
I need help how do i get phone to connect to phone manager. No asterisk by any com number want to download mp3s onto phone . Thanks keith
ive had this phone now for about 3 months and at first it was great then when u start messing about with it ie changing the profiles and ringtones ,wallpapers etc thats when u start having probs like cutting off when on calls ,trying to dial a number then it goes back to main screen or maybe it hangs when your on the 3 services ive been doing some messing about and if u do a master reset on the phone the phone will work fine the phone has not had a problem for over 2 week now obviously when they do tests on the phone they must just check it in the factory reset mode but at the end of the day we all want to personalize are phones dont we so thats no good but im so sick of it now so long as it works when i want to use it that will do for me
