Unlocking an LG CU400 phone? I have the code but....

Has anybody successfully unlock a LG CU400 with the unlock code provided by ATT.

The instructions given by ATT do not match with the phone and LG is offering no help at all.

From ATT:
"Power off device and remove AT&T SIM card.

Insert SIM card from another wireless carrier.

Power on handset - phone will display "Invalid SmartChip".

In Idle screen, enter 159753#*# - this does not display on the screen.

Enter 8-digit Unlock code.

Select "OK" - the handset is successfully unlocked."

After I entered 159753#*#, it took me to a different menu with more sub menu.

Any help appreciated

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!

LG's new site.

LG just launched a new site with some helpful things on it. Has anyone checked it out? and if so have they found anything worth taking a look at? I noticed they posted all the LG drivers in their File library. You should check it out and see if there is anything helpful for you.

LG Voyager

I've been doing some research on this but can't seem to get a clear cut answer. Perhaps there isn't the perfect solution.

I'm looking for a device that will replace my cell phone and Sony Clie at the same time. To be honest, I'm drawn to the new voyager because of the touch screen and keyboard. Those are two features, that I believe the LG has over the Black Berry.

Is there a way to Hot Sync the calendar, contacts and e-mail from Outlook 07 to the voyager using perhaps 3rd party software? I don't necessary need real time sync with a server for my e-mail. I'm not that important of a person that e-mail can't wait until I get in the office.

Anyhow, if there is anyone that has any experience with this I would really appreciate their inp...

LG Env keeps powercycling

This morning when I turned my phone on it just got past the music and the Vcast logo then it stalls and power-cycles. It does this continually until I pull the battery out. Mad

I've only had it a few weeks and never had a bit of problem with it before now. I'm sure its defective I plan to go by the Verizon store on the way home but was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

LG Chocolate 8550 - Loading music (1st timer)


Thanks in advance for any help with my questions. Smile

I just purchased the black Chocolate 8550 LG phone and it should arrive in the next few days. I'm trying to read up and find info on how to load music.

I have tons of MP3 music files on my computer already and would like to put some on the phone.

Is it true that all I would need is a memory card and a memory card reader? I found some of these on E-bay for pretty cheap.

Would I just load my music onto the card reader? I'm lost after that. The reader looks to connect to the computer via USB. The phone has no USB does it? So I'm wondering how it gets loaded onto the phone from the reader.

Thanks for any help. I've never loaded music on a phone before but figured it woul...

Downloading Ringtones

I know that you have to download ringtones through the cell phone itself...but how? I heard it was one of the Axcess Apps but I can't find it anyway. And no, I don't have a usb chord or the card so I can't do my own ringtones.

[KE500] Static/high pitch background noise on my new KE500

I just got this phone. I didn't notice this problem until I used this phone in a quiet place. When I talk to someone, I hear some random high pitch noise that's similar to symptom of tinnitus. Also, I hear some random squeak/scratch noise, simlar to the ones that you can find from playing scratched CD or MP3 ripped from a scratched CD.

My friend who once had LG phone few yrs ago told me that this is characteristic (bug?) of LG.

Should I get it exchanged or keep it (assuming if same will occur with replacement)?

Can anyone explain in laymans terms, first of all, IF, my env9900 is capable to recieve converted video and pic files from my pc? Confused Then IF possible, what type of conversion is necessary?

I bought a data cable, which included the vcast software, (I was told by cust. service at a vz store, this would do the job) but that's not the software I want.
I want to be able to convert small files from my pc and send them to my phone, and other phones. Any clear advice?

Bluetooth-LG8300 Please Help!

I recently purchased a bluetooth headset (Motorola 505) for my LG 8300 and was told that I could listen to the music that I have downloaded to the MP3 player through the bluetooth, however, I am unable to do so. I went back to Verizon where I was told that it was definitely possible with these two products they just didn’t (couldn't/wouldn't) know how to “unlock” the phone/bluetooth to make it work. I was also told that many of their products have features that the "Average Joe" is not able to access unless they are "unlocked" but because they work for Verizon they are not able to give me that info. One of the guys told to just buy the new headset (jabra) that has the opption to listen to music but I don't feel that I should have to ...
