Question about LG Vu CU920 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Bought lg vu unlocked, internet doesn't work!

Hi! I owned a nokia expressmusic phone with rogers and i broke that phone. In my plan I have unlimited browsing and instant messaging that i was able to use with that phone. I ordered the lg vu off ebay unlocked. It is with at&t but works with a lot of gsm carriers including rogers wireless. I ordered it mainly because of the touchscreen and the virtual keyboard so browsing and messaging would be easy. But the internet doesn't work on it. I called rogers and they said that just because the phone is an unlocked at&t it doesn't mean that all of rogers services will work on it. But the ebay ad said all of those things would apply. It simply said to just insert my sim card and everything would work. My ebay seller said that rogers has to help me program it to their settings. I'm not really understanding because I thought that rogers can't do anything about this other than give me internet plan which i already have. What can I do? Please help. I paid a little over $300 for the phone. Thanks

    Yeah, I have the t-mobile wing under the Rodger's network and I have the same problem, I spent $35 to get the phone unlocked and when I finally got it back, I can only recieve sms text messages and calls... No mms, no internet browsing, no using my gps system or any of that, I also thought that Rodgers could fix it but still have not gotten a resolution for it. What's the point of having a high tech phone when I can't use the features? And I'm happy with my at&t plan.

I did the same thing and after a little online sleuthing i found this solution (it works for me)

go to "menu" then "media net" then "browser settings"
Next go to "accounts" then hit "new" (at the top right next to the title "accounts")
fill in dialog boxes as follows

Account name: Rogers (doesn't really matter what you name it, this will just be the name of the network as it shows up in the menu)
Homepage: mymobilehomepage.rogers.com
Connection mode: TCP with Proxy
Proxy Address: 208.200.067.150
Proxy Port Number: 80
Security: Non-secure
Time out: 150

then click where it says MEdia Net and hit "options" then "new"
fill in the following

Connection Title: Rogers (again doesn't matter what you name it)
Authentication: PAP (don't worry about "bearer")
User Name: wapuser1
Password: wap
APN: goam.com

After everything is complete make sure to select your new option at the bottom (where it used to say "MEdia Net" it should now say "Rogers" or whatever you decided to name it)

Finally hit "save" and activate this profile. You should now be able to access the internet from your LG VU

your phone has not been "provisioned" for those capabilities. The unlock that allows you to use a T-mobile Sim only removes the Network Lock. You still have to go into your browser settings and enter the information for Homepage, APN, IP adress and username and password if necessary. Google provisioning the LG VU for T-Mobile. Email me if you have any problems and I can probably get the steps for you. Please don't forget to rate.
