The handsets were sold by various U.S. carriers, such as Cellular South, Bluegrass Cellular, Illinois Valley Cellular, Northwest Missouri Cellular, Golden State Cellular, and Nex-Tech Wireless. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, subscribers using the LG 830 Spyder can expect to be contacted by their wireless network operator. The phones are being upgraded to fix the issue.
