No MicroSD card slot = crap handset from LG.
My u880 is awesome and i was looking at also getting the u830 from 3 but after reading the specs and having a test run at the local 3 shop I won't be getting the u830 to compliment by u880.
Other than no MicroSD card slot, its a very nice handset with easy to use menu interface (very similar to the u880) the fixed cam is way much better than the swivel u880 1.3MP cam and also the u830 has a VGA cam for Video Calls which bring it in line with the other fixed cam handsets.
If LG revise there thinking and build it with a MicroSD card slot then they will have a major winning handset in the market but typical LG ...
Oh well the u880 continues in service and works great with the temporary unlock to use it with Vodafone 3G/GPRS :-)
great looking phone, wouldve been better if it had expandable memory...
does anyone know if you can put phone accessories on it? /phone charms, etc.?
They made beautiful phone with poor battery. No wonder, they never pass samsung market for their GSM phones.
no card slot, no EDGE support, "up to 2hrs talk time" (which means about a half hour in real life), bluetooth 1.1. LG always drops the ball, this handset is pathetic yet many of you are gullible enough to fall for chocolate design so this phone is rated highly.
i also bet that the HSDPA is only like 1.8mbps.
meanwhile you could go with the comparably priced Motorola RAZR maxx. 50mb internal with microSD card slot, 3.6mbps HSDPA, EDGE Class 10, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP stereo and a better keypad. looks better in my opinion.
there is no comparison.
You need to get in touch with 3 if you only got one battery. Mine came from 3 with 2 - the standard & the extended.
I just got this phone on 3, so I can tell you it only comes with one battery and it's the slimline one. Great phone but the camera "flash" is useless.
uuuh hello... have you actually used the phone? i guess not. so you wouldnt really know how thin it is, therefor how small the battery would be. the pack also includes two batteries; one is smaller and fits flush with the shape of the phone. the other protrudes slightly and gives longer life. until battery technology improves (keep and eye on toshiba next year), that is all the battery life you can expect from a device this small. other than that, the phone looks incredible and is a lot more reliable than previous LG flips.

Pros: HSDPA is around 150Kbps on USB, quite stable and power-lasting!!!
Cons: No Radio, No Memory Card Slot, BT is only v1.1!!!
Unbelievable it only has UP to two hours talk time. That's unacceptable.
i have just got this phone im not sure about it though,the mp3 player is very basic no eq ect,the maxisim sim card is unheard of by eveybody you ask plus it would of been nice to make the key pad light up red but the rest of the phone is ok(shame no radio still).
i prefer lgs rotating camera plus why didnt they put a radio on this one but have on the other chocolate flip?,also where do you get the 1gig sim card from that acts as external storage?
