Replying to:  LG CU500 PC Sync Software by Popinjay   Nov 12, 2006, 12:13 AM

People, I believe the reason why (1) LG doesn't provide the sync software and (2) Cingy doesn't sell a USB cord that charges is because:

Cingular wants you to buy the Blackberry service that (1) syncs with Outlook, etc. They also want you to use a BB to surf the net (tethered to your computer), not your CU500 (tethered to your computer). I use the CU500 to surf the net (as a modem), but the battery wears out and I have to stop and plug the stupid thing in. If the USB cable charged the phone, I could surf all day long.

They are deliberately crippling this phone. That is (maybe?) also why they never fix the annoying approval for surfing the web (on the phone). They want you to surf the net on the BB to sell you more services.

Any thoughts?

And, how can I get my data cable to charge my phone?

Regards,
Delafield
