Mine gets great reception, the only dissapointment on this phone is that it is the first LG phone NOT to have voice activated dialing. Crying or Very sad

Just finally getting to try this phone out. So far it has gotten great reception. I wasn't hesitant at first because LG's 1) Have very poor battery life 2) Are the absolute worst for reception...(I live in the Atlanta area and still get crappy service with most LG's) and 3) Just are not very well made.
This new LG however has surprised me. LG has improved the battery life a little bit. Instead of a two and a half hour of talk time, you now receive three and a half hours. Hopefully with the new phone being quad band it will get better reception than previous LG's. LG to me and most of the Cingular employees in Ga has a lot to prove to us. LG is the most returned phone and it is the phone that most customers have to do warranty claims on. So...

I also work for Cingular (Tech Support, Combined Billing, and Relocations), and I have to say that I absolutely HATE LG phones. I previously owned the 1400, and hated every distorted second of it. I know that LG and Samsung seem to be our phones of choice (because they will put out just about anything that we want them to), and that's a crying shame. I will agree that I have had numerous calls with customers requesting a PTT phone with a camera, so this phone should sell decently well. I guess I'm just a tad bit jaded because of 1. My previous LG experience, and 2. Customer feedback (they typically hate LGs). I had one customer pose a most amusing question to me. He asked, "Does LG stand for Lowest Grade?" That literally made me laugh out lo...

that was not decent... i work for LG and LG stands for "Life is Good" Currently we are #1 on the market for CDMA phones and #2 for GSM phones. SO you may wanna do some research before you dish LG for no good reason. Just because you had a bad experience doesnt mean EVERYONE does. I work for LG's wireless department and we get more compliments than complaints. And as far as Sony Ericsson- I had the Z500a-- that would have to be the crappiest phone ever made.. and Nokia is so far behind on technology I cant believe anyone would want that phone!

For working for LG, you don't appear to know much about them. LG actually stands for Lucky Goldstar (remember those lovely old Goldstart TV's and computer monitors?), Life's Good (not Life is Good) is the current slogan. Nokia holds #1 global market share with Motorola following in second for GSM, at least as of the beginning of this year. LG and Samsung followed up, but at a distance that I would be suprised if they were now beating Moto. I'll agree, the Z500a was a POS, but at least they gave us a great contest for it! And as for Nokia, at some point, people stop caring about bells and whistles and just want a reliable phone. Unfortunately, Cingular dropped the 6230, probably one of the best phones ever made, also a Nokia. So perhap...

if you guys are number one for GSM i will quit my job. maybe your companies inflated/skewed numbers used to boost your poor little employee ego say so, but in the real world, you are not.

the problem lies in LG's shoddy handling of the 1900 (PCS) band. in an 850 market, you guys are decent, but when in a PCS only market (AZ) your phones frequently go into Emergency only mode, thanks to the GSM phones low ability to handshake.

aside from that, all phones but the CU320 (the only GSM LG i know of with a Qualcomm Chipset thus making it the only decent one cingular sells) are hulking pieces of garbage. the C1300, 1500 and C2000 are just HORRIBLE. they feel cheap, they have no worthy features, and suffer from weak battery life, and mediocr...

for hearing aid users that hard of hearing this phone works grate because it has not had any interference with the hearing aid. this phone i got for my wife. she had some problems with Sony we had and now she can say comfortably the phone sounds so low. for me i hear the faintest wipers and this is the loudest phone i heard. for my wife to say it sounds low means she really hears on it. she use to have to put her phone on speaker and move it away form her ear but that a thing of the past. i have a zx20 but her phone is louder then mine and the speaker phone is louder too. I feel if you have every thing on you phone and you can not hear on it then it not a phone.

I'm just curious how a quad band phone will get better reception in the U.S. when we only use 850/1900mhz band here (which is what all cingular phones have).

You are right! The U.S. does only use 850/1990mhz bands. I don't know what I was thinking. Thanks for that reminder!

The U.S. Cingular phones are vga cameras. The one that I purchased came from Europe and has a 1.3 megapixle camera. Just wish it had voice activated dialing! Rolling Eyes
