Video Sharing Option

Sorry if this is old new but if you go to your SETTINGS Menu and click on Call and scroll down you will notice a Video Share Option and have the ablitity to enable it

I have the newest firmware upgrade so I'm not sure if that option just became available or its been there since release but this I'm guessing has to be more proof that video sharing is coming out soon and that it will be available for this phone.

Now i'm curiuos on if this option already works for I heard on the forum that the statement for video sharing appears on the bill now so if anybody will hit me up with a private message with there number (for those who have this phoen) I would like to test out this and see if it works. Like I said in the menu just turn video sha...

PC doesn't 'see' mmory over USB cable?

I finally got a USB cable to hook my phone to the PC. I have a 1gb Sandisk mass memory card in the phone. When I attach the USB cable I expect the computer to recognize it as another removable storage device. But the PC doesn't see the memory.

How can I get the computer to "see" my big empty memory chip?

Fluctuating phone volume, like overcompression/Vox. True? Fix?

Many of the user reviews say that the phone volume fluctuates, as if the conversation is overcompressed or on a vox circuit. Is this true?

If so, and if I understand correctly from a couple forum posts, this can be eliminated or reduced by some sort of EFR setting.

Can someone explain what's going on with all this? If it can't be corrected, it sounds to me like a deal killer. Something more than a yes or no would be most helpful.

Can anyone explain how and what is needed to send an MP3 ringtone to myself...

I have always used a website to send ringtones to my phone and now that i have this LG CU500 I cant quite get it right. I send my ringtones to @mms.mycingular.com and when i get the TXT MSG i dont know what to do from there... do i extract data or what?

Anytime i try to extract it disconnects from trying to access the mobile web after about one minute of trying. i have a media package that includes the mobile web so whats up?

I alos know i can put 30 sec or less pieces on my SD card but that doesnt always work either. Any helpers out there would be greatly appreciated.

Recorded voice as ringtone

Does anyone know how to set up a recorded voice (recorded on the phone itself) as a ringtone? Like my husband recording a message or my daughter and then using that as their identifier when they call.

Free LG CU500 on Wirefly?

Hi there..

My two year contract is up with Verizon, and although they are offering me everything under the sun to stay, I hate their phones. I really love this phone and am planning to switch to Cingular, but I'm a bit annoyed at the fact that I won't be able to get anything for free (whereas with Verizon I was able to get a new phone, even though they suck =p). I was wondering if anyone had any experience or knew anything about Wirefly.com? The are offering a free CU500 with a 2 year contract at $40/mo, whereas if I go directly through Cingular I'm going to have to pay like $40 to buy the phone. If I approach Cingular with the Wirefly deal do you think there is any way they'd meet the offer, or is Wirefly shady anyway? Thanks!

I dont suggest buying this phone. read why.

So i got this phone is Aug. of this year. and people always say that they cant hear me on it. I can hear them fine thought. I called up cingy and they said I have the best reception where I am so that isn't the problem. I had it replace thought warranty exchange,..and the 2nd phone has the same problems. I called cingy again, and there sending out another one, but i have a feeling that its going to have the same probs. after all, the first 2 did. If the 3rd phone there sending me has the same issue, they replace it with a different phone THANK GOD. Other things i don't like about the phone, Cingular TV isn't all that great at all, its 1/2 the size of the already small screen, and alls you get is previews of shows and news, music videos are a...

phone number format, can you insert a dash or space?

Just got this phone and like it so far.

When adding a phone number to the contact list, once the number is entered, all 10 numbers are bunched together. Is there anyway to enter a dash (or space) between area code, prefix and the last 4 digits of the number? ###-###-#### OR ### ### ####

The two features I wish the phone had are voice calling and an alert to show you have a message or voice mail while phone is closed.

Hopelessly Lost--Cingular SYNC/LG CU500/Samsung MM-A900M/LG VX8300

Everyday I look reviews, opinions, specs and photos of these phones, but I am not sure at all which is better! Here are the things I like about these phones.





Obviously there are alot more, I am just stating the most common. Some of these phones have the exact same features, such as Camera, MP3 Keys etc.

Now what I am complaining about is the the SYNC has a HORRRIBLE external screen and it's probably the less impressive phone in terms of good looks and material unlike the rest. Its kinda plain lookin. The CU500 has no FLASH in it's camera, and it has only 65k colors ...
