Summary: I have owned one of these phones before. Lasted me 3 years and took abuse from factory work. I want a simpler phone, so I am getting one again. As long as at&t network supports this phone, it is a very good and well made product for someone looking outside the smart phone world.
Summary: I bought the LG CU500v a month ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive phone. Also I ggot it in a low price. It has a 1M-pixel camera, video camera, and speakerphone. The LG CU500v's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 8 hours.
Summary: Great product with nice features. Loud speaker, Internet, Song Finder, Mp3 player, external Micro SD card, Blue tooth and easy to use. My wife had one and is a good phone. I bought it for my son. Thanks. CR.
Summary: This phone is great! It has an excellent mp3 player, lots of handy "tools", very user friendly, fast downloading capability, upgradeable memory via micro SD card(up to 2gb), Very nice sleek design. Long story short, out of all the features of this phone I only found one problem.... the camera does not zoom. Aside from that, it's great. I thought I would never replace my old Razr. I was a little skeptical about the phone at first.
Excerpt: On the battery issue that Garrigan mentioned I had trouble with the original battery. It would get very hot sometimes if I used it while it was charging. And it never seemed to hold much charge. Also there was a strange thing that would happen. I went to spend time in the hills north East of Sacramento. There was no coverage except on a hill near the house I stayed in. I would hike for exercise and near the top was one area where I had a signal but it said no access.
Excerpt: I have the old version cu500 not the cu500v. I like the overall rugged design very much as I am a construction worker. I am a welder and i actually keep it in my pocket and so far it has survived the constant abuse of being laid on and squished when I am crawling around. It did have the problems the first poster mentioned. It would not take calls and was sending people off to my voicemail but to the secure side to pick up MY messeges.
Summary: This phone is user friendly and has plenty of options. Excellent MP3 player and video capabilities. It has upgradable memory to 2GB with a micro SD card. Don't know why LG discontinued, best phone I've seen & used. TDM.
Excerpt: This phone has a great design, signal,features, and sound quality however it will let you down soon after buying it randomly turns off battery meter never accurate phone will freeze and wont show it until you find out people have been trying to call you all day.
