Does anyone know how to make this phone accept a ring tone. I have cropped all of my songs to under 25 seconds, changed the bit rate so that they are no larger than 250 kilobytes and switched the ID Tags to acceptable genres. What am I still doing wrong, someone who has gotten this to work successfully PLEASE HELP!!!

Update to my Review - 3 weeks after purchase

I have decided to return my CU500 after 3 weeks in exchange for a black RAZR. 3G has been great in my town, and all the high-speed data stuff was great on the CU500, but I have come to learn that data is just a novelty item for me and I don't need to be spending $19.99/month for it.

Honestly, the dealbreaker on this phone is that there is no voice dial. I just want to be able to dial the phone through a bluetooth headset while driving my manual car in stop-and-go traffic on the way to work and back. I cannot believe that such a "high-tech" phone would not have this feature, and in fact if it did, I probably would have continued dropping $20/month for data as well.

Is rising ringtone defeatable now?

A cingular company store rep today told me that the rising-volume ringtone can be set to consistent-volume. But he demonstrated by playing the ringtones from the menu. I tried it later and couldn't find any rising tone defeat in the menus. Phone did say that the software was the most recent.

Salestalk, or reality?

Don't need USB cable.

I've been all over Houston looking for the USB cable but no one has it. Then I discovered that you can load the microSD card if you have a universal card reader on your computer and the adaptor that comes with the microcard. I maxed a 1 Gig card out in less than 30 minutes. Its very fast this way. Then I popped it into the phone and had all my pictures and MP3 just like I wanted. I don't plan on spending 40$ bucks on the cable now. Still don't have a headphones though.

Email alert sounds?

I set up the phone to be able to check my hotmail, but now every single time I get an email the phone "dingdongs". I turned off the "remember password" feature thinking this would solve it, but no luck.

Is there a way to be able to turn off the "dingdong" alert but still use the email feature? I don't want to have to put the phone on silent, I just want that alert sound to go away.

LG CU500 power conserve option ?

On the Blackjack there is an option where you can make it not look for the UMTS network and have it just stay on the GSM network and it helps extend battery life - Does anyone out there know if you can do that with the LG CU500 - Battery life isn't what I had hoped for. thanks

I would also like to set mp3 clips as ringtones without buying from cingular. Which one should i get?

Outlook sync using Morange

I discovered this website and I was able to sync my outlook calendar, task and contacts. I was not able to sync my email because we are using Microsoft Exchange. How do you POP or IMAP an Exchange Server?

The problem is, CU500 cannot dial (212) 555-1212 format and all my phones numbers are in this format. It can only dial 212-555-1212. Any hint?

2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter w/o mic

Has anyone tried just a stereo adapter in the CU500 headphone jack?

I have a Radio Shack 2.5 to 3.5mm adapter (aka 1/8" to 3/32"), but this does not have a provision for a mic. The obvious concern is damage to the phone by shorting the mic input to a L or R channel output, or (more likely) to ground.

Thanks for anyone's experience with this.

For those of you in need of software...

A buddy of mine (can't take full cred) found this on the Australian LG site. It is software for PCsync, USBdrivers and and Internet Connection tool for Telstra's "TU500", basically a carbon copy of the CU500. Tried everything and it works fine.

Download it here: List.jsp?this_package=mnsw&mid=012300030000&_ ln=EN

You will need a USB data cable.
