Memory card/MP3 Help

Hey I had some major issues even getting my memory card to work. I tried it with the USB and couldnt get anything, so I tried it with the adapter that came with it, still nothing. Then found the 277634#*# thing along with my USB cable and got it to come upsaying 'DO NOT Disconnect During Transfer' on my phone screen and I attempt to drag my iTunes MP3s to the Removable Drive (FSmile but it says I need to format my card, then I try to format it and it doesnt work. Any idea how to format it if I try and the computer says it cant? Is it my computer or the fact that I bought my Micro SD 1g card from Target and not Cingular, do only certain cards work?

Has anyone had the following problems.

1) Logging into Yahoo Messenger resets phone
2) Phone calls get rejected even if the number not programed to be rejected
3)AOL, Yahoo, MSN messenger sign off by themselves when you switch from 3G to Edge or GPRS networks

I've returned my phone 3 times now, cingular hasnt been able to do a thing for me, but tell me exchange it. If anyone else has had these problems what have you done to fix it.

Any help will be appreciated

I know this phone is old but...

When I FIRST started in Cellular when AT&T was still singular. This was my FAV. phone. One of the first flop phones (that I know of) that supported youtube, stereo BT. and a swivel camera. I rolled with this and the Blackjack. when 3G FIRST hit the U.S

Memories.... Smile

Text message backup

Does anyone know how to get the text messages off this phone? I have some info in some message that I need to save, so I wanted to make a backup of the whole message list to my computer before my phone dies and I loose everything (it went through the clothes washer, but I was lucky this time and it sort of still works). I can't find out how to transfer them via bluetooth. I don't have a data plan, so no internet access and I don't have a USB cable and they aren't stored on the SIM card.

When you plug in USB, does find it SOMETIMES? or all the time?

Well SOMETIMES i have no problem putting in new songs, but there are days when i plug it in, it says its connected but when i go on My computer it says theres no drive E in it! this is hella stupid and then when i unplug it, the phone cant read the card. I tried that Engenering menu crap but it doesnt work all the time only sometimes. Does this happen to you?

phone turns off when charging...

I charge my phone overnight when I'm sleeping.
When I wake up my phone is turned off and just shows that it is fully charged.
This has been the second day it was like this and it never has done this before.
The phone turns right back on when I press the on button.
Is there a way to make it stop from turning off after it is fully charged?

LG CU500 PC Sync Software

This thread over at the Cingular Forums just blew my mind...

http://forums.cingular.com/cng/board/message?board.i ... »

There's software out there that Cingular has been essentially trying to keep under wraps...and there's no mention of it on the US LG site either. Wth? Anyways, enjoy everyone.

It's the TU500 over in Australia, just follow the links to the software.

need help connecting my lg to my hp IPAQ 3715 to get on the net

I am trying to connect my IPAQ 3715 to my phone to get on the net. I have paired the two and have sent a file from my IPAQ to my phone to test it. It worked, but I can't get my IPAQ to use my phone to get on the net. Is there a code from my phone that I have to give my IPAQ to be able to do this?

progressive ring

progressive ring only occurs when you have your phone opened up. closed, it rings at whatever you have it set at. sorry if this has already been posted.

Playing newly added music on the LG CU500

I just noticed that when new music is added to the LG CU500, it places the newer files on top of the "All Songs" playlist and pushes the others down.

I tried deleting the older ones and then placing them back on the phone, but somehow, I guess the phone recognizes the older files and leaves them at the bottom of the list.

It's not a big problem seeing as how I can scroll to different playlists... but I figure someone out there may have a solution.

Thanks in advance.

CU 500 and multiple pairings

Hi all, I've got an lg cu 500 which I tether with cingular (using bluetooth) for their data plan and everything works great with that... My question is as follows. In the next few days I am going to be buying the jabra bt 8010 which supports multiple pairings (it will let me connect my computer and my cell phone to the headset at the same time... very useful for gps etc) anyway, sorry for rambling. Is there a way to make the CU 500 connect to both my headset and laptop at the same time so I can use the data plan while still being connected to the headset? If anyone knows or possibly has done it please help...
