I'm disgusted.

To see the LG Shine with a AT&T logo makes me sick. Evil or Very Mad
Its not even the real lg shine. Downgraded in many ways.

Anyone that wants a good phone knows where to get it. And from the carrier isn't the place. So to all of us that buy unbranded phones, it doesn't matter what at&t sells, or what they do to their phones.

Anyone who wanted a shine would have bought i...

kind of cheap to me. Maybe I'm biased against LG but alot of their phones seem cheaply made to me.

LG Shine Bluetooth to PC

Do I need a dongle of some kind to send pictures via Bluetooth to my Dell laptop w/Vista? I have an Insignia Bluetooth headset that I use with both the PC and the Shine. That has a USB dongle for use with the PC which allows the PC and the Shine to recognize each other but not download pictures. Can anyone help?

Ringtones bigger than 300kb?

Is there anyway i can do that?

Right now if the rign tone is bigger than 300kb it can't be used and theres nothing worse than hearign someones crappy compressed ringtone. So please get back to me
Just convert your ringtones using a lower format. or import it to iTunes & convert to an mp3 with a lower bitrate......

Block calls

Is there a way to block calls? I used to have the razor and from the security menu you could allow incoming call only if they were already in your phone book. Thanks for any help!! Smile
you can add people to a list and anybody in that list cannot call you
hope this helps

Alarm setting

I am beginning to like my new red shine, but there are a few things that are bothersome, the first being, when you want to use a smiley face of some sort, and you go to pick one, all that there are is symbols, and no actual smiley faces, unless one knows all the symbols for the faces, it is impossible to know what is what....

The second complaint that I have is that when I went to set my alarm to get up in the morning, apparently, the only way that it works is if you leave the ringer on, it won't work with the ringer off, I don't want to be answering phone calls after 10pm, so if anyone knows of a way to make the alarm work with the ringer OFF, I would appreciate knowing that...

Other than those 2 issues, I am enjoying the red shine, m...

red shine problems

Hello all,

I am on my second Red shine in less than a year. I had the first on replace on warranty due to the phone doing stuff like shutting down and accessing features (including dialing) all by itself. The second phone is now starting to do the same thing. I have noticed that the numbers on the right side of the key pad do not want to work and now it is going into messaging and music sync on its own. Last night it started music sync and I had to shut the phone down to get it to stop. I could not end the application or do anything. It also has sent one message three times. I was told that this was a known problem when I got this replacement phone. BTW, there is no damage to the phone at all. Not even a scratch. Now my husband has a silv...

All the shines have this issue. My sister has a silver one and it turns off by itself. My co worker has the black one and it does the same thing. Luckily, AT&T will factory warranty it out for you, due to the problem being so widespread.

Send Multiple Pictures by Bluetooth

I can connect my Shine to my laptop using bluetooth - no problem. However, I can only send pictures from my phone to my laptop one at a time. If I have taken a lot of pictures, that's a real pain!

Any suggestions?

usb data cable - install problem

hey guys, i just bought the data cable off ebay. it didn't come with any drivers or install software. here's the problem:

i've tried bitpim- doesn't work- doesn't support this phone
i've tried mobile action - doesn't work, cannot detect the cord when it asks me to plug it in, and i've ran every driver install in the folder i can find

i've searched everywhere for a driver, something, anything to make it work.

please?
thanks,
Bit pim worked somewhat for me. Had to reset it to VX-8550 but now I can d/l ringtones and pics from desktop. Still havent gotten the phonebook to d/l. Bit-Pim user forum walked me thru it just by reading. Good Luck

Video length ?

In medium resolution, it only gets 42 seconds; lower resolution gets 1:01. If I add a microSD card, will I be able to get longer video clips?

LG Shine Scratch

Hi everyone,

I have a LG Shine CU720 which I keep in a case but have no screen protector (mistake). I took it out of the case and noticed a very small scratch on the middle of the screen. Does anyone have any good ways to fix it or know any good scratch removers? Thanks so much!
Mine is covered in scratches. Literally. And all I do with it is slip it in and out of my pocket. Sad The mirror finish is still there, but in the right light all you see on it are scratches.

Battery Life?

For people who use this phone frequently on a daily basis (one hour + talking time, text messaging, etc), how good is the battery life? Also, how often do you find yourself charging the phone?
i've used the phone today, for normal talking and text messaging. didnt really do too much web or anything, and i am down one bar. i always charge my phones every night, but haven't found this phone to be worse than any others..
...
About every day and 1/2. After about the 3rd week it started to hold a charge better. Its also good to let the battery die out completeley every now and then.
...
I've had this phone for 5 days now and I've never charged it at all. I'm still on the charge that the company puts on it. I use this phone for personal as well as busines. I average approx 20 to 25 calls a day sometimes more. Texting I get about 9 a...
(continues)
I text a rediculous amount (sometimes well over two-hundred a day) and I charge my Shine exactly every other day.

Using music downloaded from computer as a ring tone???

I just bought this phone and I was wondering if you could use the music you download from your computer as a ring tone.
i just bought it too, i will get it tomorrow and i will then be going on vacation. so help as soon as possible.

please explain how, i don't have bluetooth so i am kind of clueless
Very easily. I can get any song you have or I have on my pc to make a ringtone. 1st you need an audio conversion proggy. Then load a song from your library into the converter. Make sure you convert it to mpeg 2, layer 3 and select the whole song and c...

Any way to use T-Zones for T-Mobile on an unlocked Shine?

I bought an unlocked Shine and I plan to use it for my T Mobile service. Is there any way that I will be able to set the phone up so that I can use T-zones still?? Thank you!
yeah, you have to call tmobile and ask them to send you the software to download through your phone and it's all set.

Is it worth it?

I've been thinking about getting a new phone for awhile and the LG has got my attention even though I've read many reviews I'm still not sure if I should get one.

The bottom line is if I get it, will I find myself worrying too much about scratches and battery problems? I really need to know since I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick with it for the next 2 years (contract).
