Phone Book Transfer

Hello Everyone. I work for a Contruction Company and we have about 50 phones most motorolas but when they get lost or broken they have been sending me the LGCU515. I normally use Motorola Phone Tools and now need a program that I can do the same with for the LG. Can anyone recommend something?

Adding personalized ringtones

On my old CU500, I could add personalized ringtones. I could take music and cut it down, add it to my memory card and it would show up in the list of music and then I could assign it as a ringtone.

The CU515 doesn't seem to carry that option. The music and ringtones are now listed separately and I can't seem to find a way to get my ringtones over to the list of ringtones already included with the phone.

Does this mean that the only ringtones we can use are downloaded ringtones?

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

LG CU515 external screen

help needed please. is there a way to change the external screen "picture"? we would like it to display the time/date feature, like it shows on the user guide. we are unable to figure out how to do it. can't find any info in the book or by going thru the phone options. it might be there, somewhere, but we can't find it. our phone only shows this picture that looks like a "water damaged" screen. the phone isn't even 2 weeks old yet.
thanks in advance for any help!

Contact Ring Tones

I am looking at the LG CU515 and the reviews have been favorable, but I can't find information as to whether or not the phone has contact ring tones, where you can set a different ring tone per person. I love this feature so I am looking for a phone that has this option.

Custom Alert Tones

Can my 515 use custom sound files to notify me of a new text message? 'Cause I just downloaded the Metal Gear Solid "!" noise, and that'd make a pretty awesome text alert.
(be gentle, I'm new)

LG cu515 questions

I've had my LG cu515 for several months now and for the most part I'm really happy with it. Here are my questions:

1. When I am listening to the MP3 of my phone and then decide to make a phone call, I can not get pick up where I left off. Is that just the way it is made, or is there something I can do to make it happen?

2. Another question is basically how do I connect my Jabra 125 bluetooth to my LG cu515 phone so I can listen to my phone's MP3 player. My phone works great for phone calls but I'd like to use my Jabra 125 w/ my MP3 player but it doesn't seem to work. In contacting the Jabra people and was told I needed a phone w/ A2DP. I went to an A2DP site and the LG cu515 was not listed, however on the LG cu515 site under specs it l...

address book -- am I mising something?


I just got the CU515 yesterday, and am in the usual address-book hell trying to update / input all my contact info (last phone died, so AT&T had a hard time pulling info off it, and somehow managed to get millions of old numbers along with it..).

Anyway, when storing to the SIM, how do I designate what "type" the number is.. cell, home, work, etc..? (It looks like it gives you this option when storing to the phone, though, but not the SIM).

Is it better to store numbers to the SIM or the phone?

PTT Status

I don't use PTT and for the time being don't plan on it. Is there any way to get rid of the blue status dot that appears on the top of my screen?

Please tell me there is.

CU515 Sounds.

I had the CU500 for a short time. It was a great phone except for that stupid ding sound it made every time you would do something, like delete a file. There was no way to turn it off unless it was on silent mode. That's why I got rid of that phone. Does the CU515 have that same annoying sound? I hope not. I have the Nokia 6555. I love this phone, but the battery life is so horrible that I am thinking on getting another phone and I need one that has PTT and the CU515 has all the features I need. Thanks for any help.

Comparing this to Nokia

Hey all, posted similar question under the Nokia 6555, but comparing these 2 phones and possibly Krazr model. Like these 2 because of the large bright screens and ability to subscribe to PTT (push to talk) within our family plan if we want to. Both the 6555 Nokia and the CU 515 list PTT, but don't know anyone that's tried it.

Not big into texting or surfing, only occasionally, but want good quality phone, good reception (live in wooded area) and the PTT option. Any advice??

Voice Dial

I haven't been able to find this info - Does the LG CU515 have Voice Dial capability? I'm guessing not, or it would be listed somewhere.
