with this phone can we have pics for our contacts so when they call they come up?
Excellent mobile phone!!! Verry good battery life,strong signal,i use a 512 MB T-Flash,and you may use up to 1GB.But i cant find java games for LG.Please someone post links where i can download java games for LG.
forgot to mention some more about java..
for anyone who wants to install java apps/games on their phone, without buying it from their provider or downloading via wap, the only way to do it seems to be with a program called GThing. it costs $US7, and is a real hassle to buy since you have to buy it for every seperate phone you buy (it only works on 1 IMEI)..
i came across an alleged method, but it doesnt work for me. you might have different luck, so its worth a try.. here's the link:
for the price range this phone is in, it's for me quite clearly the best phone for its market..
the only thing which annoys me is that it's hard to compile java apps (games etc) manually. but it's automated via wap, so you'll have no problems with anything you download via the phone, it's just when you want to put java directly onto the phone..
to put mp3's and such on the phone, plug the phone to the pc via the usb cable, and pop the cd that came with the phone in as well.. it'll install some drivers, let it do it automatically, and after 3-4 installations it'll all be done..
next, install the software on the cd..
now, open the newly installed "LG Phone Manager" program, and with your phone still plugged in via the usb, click on "Transfer" then "Set COM Port...", one of them should have an asterix (*) next to it, select that one (for me its COM5)..
next, click on "Transfer" and then "Connect".. IMPORTANT, make sure your phone is at the home screen before doing this, otherwise it'll come up with a connection error..
once you see that your phone is connected (just look at the screen), then click on contents to the left.. from within there, you can now browse your hard drive. copy the files you want by browsing to them through the file manager, then right click and "copy", then in the left panel double click on "LG Phone", then go to the appropriate folder (videos, sounds, images), then simply paste them in there.. voila, the files will appear on your phone now..
I have a LG U8360 since december, last year and I think it is a very good phone, one of the best from LG. It is a good phone at a low priece. Only one question : do anyone knoes how to put some games in it(a site or something)?
Hi! I am really interested in buying this phone; can anyone tell my what is the highest card size it supports? 256MB? 512MB? ...1GB?? Also anyone knows anything about it's battery life? How long does the 1400 mA battery last?
PLEASE HELP ME! i have no idea what im doing with this phone.. how do u put mp3's on it. ive tried reading past posts for info but its all too confusing. email or post asap :'(
hi all. had phone for 4 months and works fine. connecting on usb on xp fine 2. software aint very brill.. get some of download.com (aac converters ect. 18 full lenght tunes converted from mp3 into acc format put on the phone, taken all vid's and pic's of phone to save memory as not have flash card so don't put mp3 on the phone as you won't get many tunes on it, convert them 2 acc unless u have the flash card as built in mem is crap and a zx spectrum has more lol. 1 thing i don't like about the phone you have to make a playlist to skip a tune and also i don't injoy the player software could be better and the speakers are crap 2. and if you need the software send a email. yer the phone is cheap to buy now and have mine on contract, wish i didn't as seen the phone for £110 in the secondhand shop and now theres many better 1s for less.
I also have win 98 (SE that is ),and I installed all the drivers given there,I went step-by-step,as my machine was reporting new hardware,I think it was 3 times,or so,since I also have a transflash card inside.So,as I previosly said,just install all there is,set the port,go to transfer->connect in Phone Manager,and that's it!
I think this phone is cool. I had an NEC e616v before and as for file transfer, it's way better than that. The fact you can use MP3's as ring tones is good too, and it has blue tooth! I only paid £80 for the refurb model. The camera is actualy quite clear and anyhow if you think about it, 1.3 mega pixels isn't actually THAT high compared to any dedicated digital camera you can get (2.5 or more) so I don't know what people are expecting from a MOBILE PHONE! It's not a professional photgraphic piece of equipment; the phone camera is there to take quick snapshots! I like the fact you can get high quality images on to the phone as wallpapers as my old NEC model would only allow low quality ones, usually GIF files or PNG, whereas with this phone you can get almost any 3D wallpaper you find off the net and the phone will shrink it to fit the screen perfectly. I also use my computer wav sounds (converted into MP3's) as my text message tones as they are louder than the MIDI files and don't vibrate the speaker as much.
Ive figured out how to put mp3s on but is it possible to chuck a game on it were do you download the games from?
Thanks for your advice. I am still having the same problem.It seems that USB driver is not installed on my PC. Can you please tell me which driver should I install and where can I get it from? I have Windows 98 on my PC.
The correct port is shown in the Sync Manager->Configure->Communication Settings and you must mark the same port in the Phone Manager->Transfer->Set COM port
If it still doesn`t work you should try to install the USB driver once again, the tricky thing is that the driver should be installed 4!!! times (I gues the korean dudes from LG just like to make life difficult for us europeans)
Good luck to everyone with the synchronization, it`s not an easy one !
I m having problems in connecting phone to my PC. I don't know which port no. should I put in when using the transfer option. Can somebody please help me?
I suppose you're talking about USB connection along with the software-it's not a biggy,you have to install everything you got,especially Sync and Phone manager,new hardwares ofcourse;then,you open the Phone Manager,go to TRANSFER where you set the correct port,for example mine is COM6,and then you click CONNECT;phone must be closed,in order to connect via USB,you will see a little animation that shows a pc and a phone with some arrows.
how do you connect the phone when i click connect it still dont work even after going thru tools nd stuff
Maximum memory I heard someone used (external one ofcourse)is 512,I have transflash SD card of 128 and I payed it 9 euro (in Italy)..
