Phone automatically calls last call

How do I stop this phone from calling the last call I was on? It doesn't matter if it's an incoming or outgoing call...the phone dials the last call I was on within 5 minutes of hanging up.

CU500 Unit Converter

I was using my unit converter on my LG CU500 to convert fl oz to ml and quarts to liters and discovered that the phone is using British units and not American. Anyone have similar experiences on their CU500? Any suggestions on how to switch the phone to the American measurement units?

The cover over the outer display cracked. The LCD is fine, just the plastic piece cracked. It looks like it just pops off, but where could I get a replacement cover?

These phones that are music players, do they have headphone jacks. When you search on that, they don't come up. Thanks.

"file not supported"

So I finally got my SanDisk 1gb memory card to work, meaning the phone will recognize it now, and I put some mp3's on my phone from my computer. Some of them it will play, and some of them it will not recognize and will not play. Anyone else having this problem? This phone is too good for this to happen. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Have you noticed the wide range of opinions on LG CU500?

If you read through the many reviews, the PS reviewers either love or hate this phone. I wonder why? Rolling Eyes

Did you notice how many reviews are poorly written with irrelevant points and psycho rants from people expecting too much from a cell phone? I say to these people, PLEASE GET A LIFE. Razz

Help organizing music and stop ascending ring tones.

Ok is there a way to organize my music and ring tones? I have a 1gb sd card, and when I put my music in, they werent in order. I tried to sort them by name but it doesnt do it in music player, and I want to be able to make a Folder for Ringtones and Music or Rap, rock etc. Is there a way to create folders in the sd card and not the phone memory? but yea how come our ringtones start off low and then high. How do you change it to just full ring tone and just all loud. thanks

CU500 Guru needed!

I just picked up a CU500. My father has the same phone. Now we would like to get a USB cable for syncing phonebook entries and new ring tones.

Having read through MANY threads I’m still pretty foggy on this stuff. Why can’t this be easier (like S/E phones!)? I have a few questions:

- Is there a reliable USB cable other than the OEM one (i.e. cheaper)?
- Is there any reliable software out there for syncing to the phone? Since I’m not interested in transferring mp3s, photos, etc, strictly speaking mass storage isn’t going to help with numbers and tones (well maybe tones, dunno).
- Do I have to have a microSD to sync with the CU500?

I simply can’t find a straight answer to all this. Help!

"Card Not Ready"

I just put a 1GB PNY micro sd card into my cu500. The phone does not recognize that it is there and when I go to "Check Memory" in Settings the phone says "Card Not Ready." What does this mean, how can I fix it?
