I also discovered that it does not install applications received from bluetooth. Please, try to do necessary modifications in your next product. Keep it up...LG

  • its a good phone many dont have it here so im cool having it but one thing is that battery battery is heck pleez do something anyway hands up lol

  • i have been using this phone for 2years, and i dont think it sells anymore but i didnt had any problems with this phone but whenever other people use my phone they say its hard to use, well once u get used to it it will be easy :) and i have dropped my phone on the ground and in snow quite a lot but it never got broke or anything, maybe i waz just lucky but still, its a great phone:]

  • it looks cool,nice and small, feels good in your hand butplay music to soft,and i cant get to set no songs to the ringtone or message

  • way mms not wark

  • it's a gud fone but bluetooth can't connect to other divices as fast, compared to other fones,tanks.

  • its a good fone is jus dat it does not play loud and dats not good

  • its a good fone is jus dat it does not play loud and dats not good

  • This phone has a very good design. It looks expensive and sophisticated. But the downside of it. -No 3.5mm jack -Poor Speakers -Poor texting capabilities -Poor Display in daylight condition -Poor Battery life -NO PROFILES for Silent, discreet, Load etc usually found on all mobile phones. -ATNT wants you to buy everything. I am using it here in the Philippines. I have to hack it so that i can use my own browser and applications because there is no ATNT in Philippines. GOOD SIDE. Nice Cam compared to other 2mp cam with flash. Great built quality.

  • Well the fone is nice,wonderful and attractive bt it seems the battery life is minimal

  • The great feature of this mobile is multitasking. it is unimaginable to perform multi java programme in a nonsymbian or nonwindows phone. but cu720 have done it. only disappointment is its poor blue tooth.

  • Sound quality is very bad.and charge doesnt stay that long.Only good thing is the Camera.i wouldn't recommend buying this to anyone as i suffered myself.

  • music so less(low noise)

  • This phone does more than you pay for. It has great battery life, strong metal body, plus a mirror to convince my girlfriend she's beautiful.(i ended up loosing it to her) The Camera, for 2mp is great. Both videos and pictures look stunning. Apart from the fact that it has a limited file size for mp3 ringtones......i don't know about you, but all that glitters is gold!

  • Very good phone. Good battery life.

  • does this phone have bluetooth

  • just to say that the model is okay but why the usb cord is not in he phone which will will equaly market the model well.

  • i loss my this lg phone:( i miss u lg cu720:(

  • hiii guys can someone tell me how much memory can hold this phone 2 gb or 4gb and also is there any software to put music and pictures thanks very much

  • How could i download opera mini? help me please

  • this is a badass phone. i dont know why they stopped selling them. i had one but i got wet so i had to get a new phone. i ended up getting the lg vu (which is a pretty good choice), but i would have rather gotten the shine.

  • Hi, I strongly recommend you to visit Nokia Site, they have the best phones ever, good battery life, sometimes you will charge you phone every two days!!!!, no every two hours like others. Text is good, and it have a lot features you will love. The only thing camera in Nokia is not good. But other than that you won't be disappointed. I hope my answer will help you out. I know how you feel. Take care. Have a good one

  • Well, the phone looks nice, but battery life is poor; scratch easily ;it's difficult to hear the other person in the phone when somebody calls me, I actually have to call them back from my house phone; and try to text from this one is awful. But if you want a phone that take great pictures, and works only as a camera, then you can buy it. I strongly recommend this phone as a camera ONLY.

  • i have one of these and it SUKS... had it for nearly a year.. it has an extremly cheap screen that scratches really easy, and it will randumly miss calls, turn off, and sometimes when o a phone call it you sundly wont bable to hear eachother. it looks cool and it has a good camera and good sound quality but thats about all!!!

  • it's a very nice phone last year i had one and thi year again another .

  • this is ok it s gud for music and gud for takin pics also its gud for callin and textin but it is fragile

  • Worst phone I ever had too fragile went through three of them before breaking down and buying a different phone

  • Hey again everyone. just wanted to add a few more things to my question. 1.Calling and Texting is all that i really need right now, nothing extremely fancy. 2.I need something that will last me a while. 3.Please suggest other phones!!! I need all the help i can get! Thanks again for taking the time to read my question. -AGirlLookingForAPhone

  • I'm getting my first phone soon and i really need to know if this phone would be nice for me.i wouldn't really use all those certain features like bluetooth or whatever else. i mainly will use it for calling and texting. i'm turning 13 and i really need everyone out there to help me on this. (my family isn't as high tech as others so they aren't help)please let me know if this phone is good for me, or suggest other phones. thanks to everyone who will hopefully reply, AGirlLookingForAPhone

  • battery sucks: needs a more powerful battery

  • ya its a beautiful phone but how dissapointing i've sent it out 3 times for repair and now they want to charge me for repairs when it's barely been more than a year and it spend at least 4 months in repairs so i'm suing their ass...

  • does anybody know if u can send ringtones under 300kb through messages and set it as your text ringtone

  • Very nice site!

  • Sound quality is good. Bluetooth detection doesn't work at all at times. The phone has been in the shop getting fixed more than I have had it, in the last 1.5years It would be nice phone if it actually worked!!!

  • Very nice site!

  • thanks

  • i have a cu720. i live in ulaanbaatar city, mongolia, asia. i can't connect internet with my phone. how can i access internet. how to configure connection options. help. my email is:[email protected] . pls send me.

  • hey people i think my phone is broken so i was thinking about getting this one to replace it is that good idear ??

  • How did this phone get such good ratings? The battery is terrible if you are a heavy user like me, the reception is sub-par and the first one I got had a defect where it would shut off when I closed it. I do like the fact that you can put a memory card in it but you can only use ring tones for calls and alarms. The back gets scratched REALLY easily and you will be polishing the screen a lot. I wouldn't recommend this phone.

  • The instructions are on the page... Here are a few more websites if you want to help you with ringtunes you want :: makeownringtone.com/ www.ventones.com/ www.myxer.com/ www.phonezoo.com/

  • how do u make a ringtone on the makeownringtone.com?

  • you are gonna have to call customer care..call from a land line with your phone in hand .

  • Im not sure you can. Best thing to do is to change the validity period. that will auto delete text messages after a period of time. Menu> Messages> Settings> Text Message> Validity Period

  • Simply import your ringtone file to and redownload the ringtone and then copy and paste the file onto your microsd card.

  • what is the message center number for this phone?

  • please somebady tellme how put mp3 ringtones

  • this phone honestly is one of the worst phones i ever had, it shuts down on its own if you slide it closed.. so much more problems such as battery life after a month of using the battery life is short.. when you text the phone delays the keys so you wont see what your writing untill 5 seconds later! it fricken sucks!

  • I would like to know how to delete all SMS inbox/ outbox and more

  • Open your contact list and then if you want select 1 or more( should give you the option to do it for ALL) It should say something like "Copy>>All to Sim" it will only take a few moments to do so, and Voila your contacts are all on your sim cards. Also when you go to "create" and save a contact on your phone it has the capability ( GIVES YOU THE OPTION) to save it on the phoen or simcard. aswell if you want i did this with my phone. i made a duplicate. which means that i have a copy on my phone either way and on my sim card. i have like 4 phones with Rogers. w580/ LG shine/ Motorola Krazer and the BlackBerry Pearl 8100.

  • Yes you have to have the phone on for the alarm to go off, and if you use it to wake up and people call you at night just turn on airplane mode which disables data (calls/texts etc.) and you should be fine.

  • depends on which provider. Rogers = New Customer ( 29.99 on a 3Year contract) or if you wanna go flat out at a store -> 409.99$ CAN.

  • How Much Is This Phone Right Now???

  • I've been trying to activate the alarm and it won't go off on the specified time when the phone is off but it does when it is on, why ? How do we manipulate it to let the alarm go off when the phone is not on ?

  • GH it sounds like ur netowrk causing most of your issues

  • Dropped calls, VM arrives 2 hours -2 days late, battery dies too quick, turns its self off even though has a full battery, no service available once I dial even though several bars show, received a new phone replacement - but same problems with it too

  • some reason i cant send anymore text messages. how come?

  • the phone it's good i have for 10 days and i love lol....

  • How do i back up my contact list? This should be easy but the only software I found: bitpim, does not list lg cu720. the phone limits me to 500 contacts but every number (ie cell home work) is a separate contact. If I cannot export and import my contact list, this phone is .... a major disappointment. Help.

  • loll its a battery problem, just replace it..

  • I have had this phone for over a year now, it has been turning itself off by itself for a while now and it has just started getting really hot and just draining the battery in 10-15 minutes. Is this a problem with the battery or should i get a new phone? any suggestions? thx

  • yes I have the black one and it looks very very nice :P

  • how do yu put yur ringtone on tha phone? do yu use bitpim or a different program? cuz im tryna use a diff. prog. since i dun like bitpim lol

  • Silver isn't the only color. They also have black and red because i have the red one.

  • the phon is very nice. I have it for 3 deys and i don't have a bad comment for it. The only bad thing is the ringtone it has to be 300kb or smaller :)

  • just use the lg pc suite while the usb connection is in data service mode. locate the pics you want transfferd whether in the sd card or phone and drag to the desktop.

  • how do i download pics from this phone to my computer.

  • the audio file must be less then 300 Kb btw

  • if you store your mp3 songs on a sd card, then move the music file to "audio" instead of "music" and you can use it as a ring tone

  • This phone is good.

  • The phone is just amazing.

  • this phone is ok what i hate is that you cant choose whatever ringtone you want.

  • ever heard of a program call Bitpim? learn to use it..

  • i have this phone .. but some features of this phone SUCKS ! because you cant set your MP3 music as a ringtone.you also cant set your recorded voice as an alarm tone .. the speaker is too SLOW .. but the memory is too HIGH .. its still ok .. i also love this phone !! :))

  • this phone is amazing the whole feel of the phone is simply astounding. only 2 cons of the phone so far..the joystick is very sensitive so you have to apply limited pressure and also the keypad, the keypad is clustered and somewhat hard to press (in my opinion)

  • Whats the difference between the cu720 and the tu720 which one is better if you can explain, thanks

  • how much is it?

  • Yes, you can lock the phone w/ a four digit security code.

  • i was wondering can u lock the phone

  • i have the phone.. You "CAN'T" use the whole Mp3 as a ringtone. But its no Big deal since you won't wanna listen to the whole song while someone is calling you. What is the point? You're going to answer it anyways. You can't use the whole MP3. Just download a Ringtone from the part of the song thats good enough.. Overall the phone is Good..

  • Hey, I am really close in getting this phone and I was just wondering if you could put mp3 songs as your ringtone or do you have to use the ringtones that the phone comes with?

  • The phone is GOOD but i won't say its excellent. Its a phone for people who just want to have a cool looking phone. That brings a good package with it. The features is pretty solid. The sound quality is good but not that loud compared to a motorola razr.Over all the sound quality is pretty decent. The camera is 2 megapixel. But since the lense is made by Schneider Kreuznech. The photo quality is higher than average. The pictures are really clear and has a good quality. The scroll is not that annoying for me. Its actually cool i think. The phone gets scratch easily though. So buy a cover for the screen. Over all the phone is good.

  • Is TU720, by the way, better than I expected, is not for people who like their phones to be lite, this one is heavier than N95, or RZOR, is made of steel, carefully do not put your wet or sweat hands on the back cover, it will look dirty,I recommend other colours, pink or black.Reception and signal very good, video call acceptable, tv very good, also radios and internet, for it's screen size.Only one problem, the central 5 ways button too sensitive.

  • Can u compare the sound quality against the Lg shine ke970 because they say both have very poor sound quality.Which one would be best?

  • Does the shine play mp3's well and is it okay for people with huge thumbs like myself.Im using a samsung slider m310 and it is soooo little so i want to find out is it a normal size

  • these phones are the best phones ever to me the only bad part is that i dont got one

  • well i have to say this phone isnt that bad, looks good, sound quality is metallic but decent enough, i prefer loud to not loud enough, and the battery has been good so far. anyone know of any software upgrades or anything like that

  • Can somebody tell me is the speaker really sad or is it good

  • what kind of an upgrade

  • battery life is wonderful and the 3g is frickin amazing!!! it's a really fast satisfactory phone... the media player isn't anything to write home about though.... it's a pretty design... make sure the bluetooth is working correctly when you recieve it though, and make sure the screen doesn't wobble too much from the body... if it does lg will send you a new one in trade...

  • If You are looking for an upgrade it is Free!!!!! If You are coming from another network it's also Free!!!!!!

  • if you are music lover? get s.e.walkman phones! but if you want to be a unique have lg phones!!! i love both sonyericsson & lg's phones!!!!! nokia is very poooooorest!!!!!

  • Hey guys im debating between this phone and the nokia 5310. im a huge fan of nokias but this phone looks better than the 5310. im just wondering about the battery life on it and plzz let me know what phone u guys think is better

  • Ya i'm disappointed in the music on this phone. I'm getting the Sony Ericsson W760i soon because of the poor loudness of music.

  • I have to say i was dissapointed with the sound quality . Not that i don.t love my phone. Everything about rit ocks . But being a music fan my next choice will definately be the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1

  • Hows the music quality on the speakers?

  • Is it possible to put movies onto this phone from my computer?

  • If you got it unlocked and are not using it with At&t that is most liekly the problem. It somehow can't connect to the proper network to receive/send. I hear you can fix it with a speacial code... but I just decieded to give up on unlocked phones...

  • this phone is great but mine is not letting me send any pics or songs also it does not let me get pics from friends this makes me very mad do any of u have a way of fixing it?

  • how much does it cost? THANK YOU

  • like to the prices

  • this phone is very nice..BUT scratches very easily. and gets SUPER HOT when charger and..HOTTER when charging and talking at the same time ...i dont like it any more...and now my lcd screen is cracked and i did not drop it.

  • I bought the LG shine November,2007. It's a beautiful phone. The 2 problems I had with it were 1. bluetooth did not work well with the Shine. 2. The phone turns off automatically. The only way you turn it on again is to take the battery out, then put it back in & then turn the phone on. Other than that, it works pretty well & is a nice eye catching & sturdy phone.

  • theres not much difference between the shines. this shine wit the circular thingie is a bit thicker than the other shine and also a bit crappier. on the other hand the other shines are thinner. theres one with the front and back camera and one with only one camera... other than that they all function the same

  • Really nice phone - looks great and feels great. Unlike most other phones out there which are made up of mostly plastic, this one actually has some substance to it. Screen is gorgeous and the camera is great too. My only gripe with the phone is the somewhat bad call quality. It is passable, but not as good as the call quality of my old Sony Ericsson. (an inferior phone in all other aspects) The keypad isn't that great, but I don't do any texting, so it doesn't really matter for me.

  • i was wondering what is the difference between all the shines?

  • I was wondering how the quality of video calling is?

  • all of the sudden the blue toothe doesnt work, i cant send a song or pic to another phone by bluethooth. it wont even pick up the earpiece, it stays in searching "Mode"... anyone else have problems with bluethooth??? any suggestions?

  • yes to answer u can just press the blue nub at the side( lg calls the blue nubs the phone's eyes). There is no need to slide it open to anwser a call.

  • I am thinking about getting this phone, and was wondering if you can answer the phone without sliding it open.

  • My phone works well and stays charged for 2-3 days depending on talk time. Keys are small but am getting used to them, and scrolling was a challenge for a while but now is okay. Would like to find a couple more a little cheaper than at cingular store.

  • Hey, How do you disable the 3G?

  • my father gave this phone to me.i was so surprised coz its is so awesome so beautiful phone..it has a lot of memory even i dont have memory card...but the speaker is to "LOW"......

  • i only have a few complaints about this fone. overall i like, its got a good camera and it awesome looking. the battery life doesnt bother me cause i charge it every night anyway. the thing i dont like is i cant figure out how to set a ringtone as a message alert. they only give u ten choices to choose from( i chose the one the goes ding ding) lol. but anyway i cant figure out how to do it, and if u even can. could someone plz tell me if there is some way to do it or a loophole that i can do it plz.

  • It's been a couple of months with this thing, and it's a mixed bag. It's my only phone, so I use it a lot. PROS: 1. The display: big and bright; great mirror effect when dark 2. Call quality and reception; good speakerphone 3. Connectivity: 3G and even Edge - make sure to get the free Opera Mini browser 4.0 - immediately - the standard browser is not very good 4. Bluetooth, Java and MicroSD card slot: very few restrictions, good performance, hot-swappable card, surprising amount of on-board memory, too. 5. The design and buid quality: LG really hit it out of the park with this one! Sleek, stylish and solidly built, the phone has an appealing heft and quality feel to it. CONS: 1. The menus: More than anything, the menus are the biggest disappointment. Illogically or greedily designed - with very limited customization (as opposed to my old Moto V551 or Razr V3 which lets you customize almost everything) and no way to put icons on the main screen, one has to fit what they do to the idiosyncracies of the phone, rather than tailor the phone to fit the user. It often borders on the exasperating. I'm waiting on a software fix (or hack) to help alleviate this a bit. 2. The keypad: Not as bad as some say, but it's not that great, either. It takes some getting used to. The T9 predictive text is kinda crappy, IMHO. 3. The joystick controller area: Again, not too bad, and you'll get used to it. Yet I'd have gladly given up some of the mirror finish area for a decent D-pad between the smartkeys (with the "call" & "end" buttons moved beneath the smartkeys instead of crowding the keypad). 4. Battery life: The cost of 3G and all the other features, I gather. Not really an issue if you recharge it at least every other day, but deactivate the 3G if you're gonna be away from the charger for a while. 5. Ringtone size limit: Mp3 ringtones no larger than 300kb?!?! Pretty ridiculous and makes no sense at all. Thankfully, I'm used to creating small mp3 ringtones for my old Moto phones, using Audacity. OVERALL: A mixed bag - excellent build quality and performance and a stunning design are almost ruined by poorly designed menus and cramped controls. Get the Opera Mini 4 browser, though - it'll transform your browsing experience with this phone. So I'm keeping this phone, for now. Hopefully a fix, hack or upgrade will come soon for the software. That I'm already thinking about my next phone is not a good sign, though.

  • I just go this phone less than a week ago and already returning it after 2 days of use. I have a few complaints about it. I was surprised to see how difficult it was to open with one hand, mainly because it is so sleek, your fingers have nothing to grip. The other thing is that because it is so sleek and shiny, i'm constantly wiping it to keep smudge marks off. It does boast a large viewing screen compared to others, but it is completely unprotected, so it becomes easily scratched. Navigation is a little difficult too. I was surprised to see there were such few ring tones to choose from and the speaker level on the intercom was not that impressive compared to others. Lastly, it is quite heavy and thick compared to others. My opinion is not based on perfomance so I cannot comment on that. I thought Id really like the look, but then found it was not practical FOR ME. Maybe you'll have better luck.

  • I just came from a CU500 and i think that this phone is amazing minus the itty bitty keypad lol its a huge step up

  • The "circle" is a joystick. I just got this phone. It is very nice. It can take up to a 4 GB memory card (wish it could use the 8GB cards). Don't waste your money on the program DataPilot, it does not support this phone. ALso, it isn't needed to do music sync from Windows Media Player - just need the cable. I don't know how to sync to Outlook yet.

  • Its hsdpa 7.2 not 3.6

  • I have had this phone for 10 days and I am getting a replacement from Rogers, Java apps are screwed up. If you play music it will lock up after 1 or 2 songs. However, if you play music thru media menu, its flawless. Call Roger's customer retention number with this problem, you will likely get a replacement with new Java installed. I hope this helps. Personally, I like this fon.

  • I DOnt have this phone yet. but i really want it. How do u navigate? does the circle Move? Or is there arrows to press. This Probally Sounds Really Dumb. ButHope someone can answer!

  • jst got this fon and so far its good.. very cute and slim

  • My fiance and I had this phone for about 3 weeks. They have all of a sudden started showing defects such as locking up after a couple of hours of non use. The only way to get it back up and running is to remove the battery. Anyone else with the same problem or others?

  • Its is in my views a top of the line phone i wish i had access to a credit card, at this very moment because, i would of gotten that phone right away (oh my gosh this is the shit dawg). But i will say though that the color options should be very creative to enthrawl a younger market. If in the future you which to send me a phone please don't be shy, it will be greatly appreciated.

  • oh, AT&T version for america only have one-way video calling..

  • Yes only the Rogers Version of this phone sold in Canada will be able to do live Video calling. The AT&T version does not have the front camera.

  • no america dont have videocall plus theres no front camera on the phone

  • this phone is beautiful and it stops there. java is locked for some reason. you cannot use your own apps or games. and personal mp3 ring tones are limited to 300 kb. there are workarounds for both but why bother? if you don't mind the two reasons not to buy it, then it's a great phone hands down.

  • Actually the AT&T version has Video Calling as well. It is known as Video Share in the US, and AT&T is the only provider that supports such service.

  • Canada version has Videocalling and was released months before the USA version.

  • I like this phone. Sucks because the battery life isn't very long if you talk a lot on it, so you'll have to charge it a lot. I have small fingers so the whole keypad being crowded doesn't bother me. I love the sound on it and the way the looks. True the joystick is difficult to handle, but i think after you use it for a while you'll just more used to it and be able to handle it better. ^^

  • The U.S. AT&T version (CU720) and the Canada Rogers version (TU720) have replaced the roller navigation with the joystick/scrollwhell due to complaints with the original roller. The newer navigation is a small circle that spins 360 degrees. Also, they made a bit more space for the Call, clear, and end buttom for more space. Both of the North American versions have HSDPA and include microSD card slots, but only the Canada-Rogers version supports Video Calling. Also, they dropped the Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens.
