LG KU990 Caller ID

Hi. I've had a Viewty for a couple of months but whenever someone calls me the phone says 'no caller ID'. I've checked with everyone and they're phones aren't set to private so I think its a setting I can't find or something. Thanks!

  • If you answer the call, the number (or number and name) stays on the display until either you or the caller hangs up.
  • If you do not answer the call, most display units keep a record of the calls received, including the phone number (or number and name), date, and time.
  • If the letter P, priv, private, or a similar term appears, the caller may have blocked the display of his or her number.
  • If the letter O, ????, out of area, or a similar message appears, the caller either is in an area that does not support Caller ID or has placed the call using operator assistance.
  • Caller ID comes with Anonymous Call Rejection, which, when active, allows you to reject calls from callers who block their number. Your phone does not ring, and the caller hears a message saying blocked calls will not go through.
    • To turn on Anonymous Call Rejection, press
      *77 on a touch-tone phone (or dial 1177 on a rotary phone)
    • To turn off this service, press
      *87 on a touch-tone phone (or dial 1187 on a rotary phone)

or go through

After reading this and seeing that other people have the same problem with same phone as me on 3, I called 3 and told him what was happening. He said that caller ID was deactivated for me and that he would activate me and it should be good to go within 4 hours.

I told him that I had searched the internet and found a lot of other people with the same problem, same phone, all on 3, and he said that the case is most likely that the Viewty doesn't come with Caller ID active by default (for some stupid reason). He said that if I know anyone else with the problem I should just tell them to call 3 and ask to have caller ID activated.

So try it, and I'll come back on here tomorrow and let you know if it worked. I hope so - I had 5 calls today in 2 minutes, which sounds urgent, and I don't know who it was. Good luck guys! God bless.

Hi, how can I add a special ringtone to certain contacts on my LG KU990i? TIA

(answering myself!)
you can associate ringtones and photos with a caller, but only if the caller's details are in the phone memory, not on the SIM card.

easy when you know how!

The caller is unable to hear me when I respond using my KU990? Pls help. Thanks


check that using the headset is your voice audible to the other party

if this is be the case then you might have to get your mic of the phone replaced

as a home check try a vaccum cleaner small nozzle thingy and **** out any dust or particles at the mic hole

also a light tap on the palm may alo be of help

pls rate if it was any help

Private number

You have your phone set to hide your caller identification.
Go to Menu -> Settings (4th tab) -> Call settings -> Common setting -> Send my number
Select on to show your number to the people you call.
