My sister has just picked this phone up. I dont see the problem here..You get 2 batteries..Like the gentleman said earlier..You get 2 batteries!. If you want music, Buy an ipod. If you want a brillaint camera, Buy a digital camera. If you want everything, Look at an Nokia E65 or a N95. U830 is a basic phone for people who have the basic needs. PHONING AND TEXTING PEOPLE.
Hi, when my u830 is open there is nothing on the front screen. Is there supposed to be? My u880 would have a 3 sign on it. It also seems to give me the option of selecting a picture for outgoing calls on the front screen but mine is just blank when the handset is open. Don't know if this is right or not...
Ya, that thing is nothing compared to the American Version. Ours is called the 8600 and it has a memory card slot and it is BAD ASS. Ours looks better too! SWEET!
Hey, my mob freeked out 2 times does anyone have anything to say about it?
This phone looked good but proved to be a real disappointment after I upgraded from my LG u880.
* First of all the shock was no external memory! All I have now is 180mb which made me really annoyed as my 512mb transflash card was always full and I was thinking of 1Gb. What sort of upgrade is this !!!
* Secondly there is no easy way to copy my java applications that I had backed up on my PC. The accompanying pc software only allows a few types of files (music and video etc). Only way is to connect using bluetooth. Not very convenient.
* Thirdly this phone doesnt charge itself using USB. This is a real pain as the battery is very short lived and you cannot take the charger around. I might have to buy a second charger for office.
I would have had it changed but was too late to ask for a replacement. Now I am stuck with it for one year. :-(
Hi, ive had this phone for about a week now, it did come supplied with 2 batteries, im using the slim line one and get about 3 days average use from it, its a nice phone just a pity it doesnt utilise a memory card, have to say from experience lg on 3 are far better for reliability than they used to be
there is a huge lack of help with this phone; i find the accompanying booklet to be sparse in details.
Consequently, the phone can be, at times, quite difficult to use. However, once you learn the basics it becomes considerably easier to manage.
One problem I have noticed is in the MP3 menu, the phone becomes significantly slower, and can this can prove to be quite irritating if you have a large number of songs.
Also, the camera quality is apalling for such a new and expensive phone. I was disappointed with this. The sound, too, is also very muffled, and the quality is only improved when using the headphones supplied.
I've had this phone for over 2 months, and the only problem I have is that when I input contacts into the adressbook, a few days later some contacts have disappeared. It's starting to frustrate me. Has anyone else experienced this?
i got my lg phone from 3 and have used it for two days now, it was an upgrade. just remember if you have a upgrade you use your same sim card which means your cant take advantage of the new sim with i think they say as 1 gb of memorey, plus no card slot with this phone! music player not anything near as good as the nokia 6280.if you just want the phone for looks 10/10
does anybody know what to use the flash player for as i cant find anything to play on it?
How many people have ever seen a FASHION phone with all the features they wanted on it?
I know I sure haven't, fashion will always bring compromises.
This phone is a nice phone and I would say better than alot of other 3G phones that have come our way.
It won't be to everyones taste so whats the point about whining that it doesnt have radio multi plex dolby or bluetooth version 5.37 million??
Looks nice, works fine, nicer than the u880.
i just got this phone... the speaker quality isnt that good and its only mono sound, and wen its turned up its crackly! its just a fashion accessory... keypad backlighting is white but not as bright as i wanted...
hey is this a good fone? i need a new ffone and im not sure what to get. help me please!!!
can anyone tell me how to use handsfree in the LGU830, the stereo handsfree that came with the phone doesnt seem to fit in the jack..please reply asap
hi just wondering if it really has stereo sound, and if so, does it sound loud when the phone rings. Is there more than one phone theme and what colour lights up on the keypads.
