Question about LG CU500 Cellular Phone

3 Answers


Have just purchased a new LG TU550. For incoming calls, the ringtone starts off very quiet and gets louder and louder until it is answered. Is there any way of setting the phone to make the incoming ringtone volume a constant level rather than increasing.


Also is there any way to make a MP3 saved onto the phone the ringtone and can you increase the number of rings before the message bank picks up?


Kind regards

    Doesn't ring for long enough - can the number of rings be increased before it goes to voicemail?

If your phone is the black TU550, there is nothing you can do to change the volume at the start of an incoming call. The software is different to the silver TU550 (I have both phones and LG told me the differences) and the silver is the same level from the start to end of the ringtone.

It is possible to make a ringtone and set the volume louder for the first 10 seconds or so and then decrease it (Ringtone Media studio). Your ringtone needs to be less than 17 seconds though.

Hope this helps.

Why is my LG neon 2 (LG GT36) so quiet when i get texts? Can i make it louder?

Yes you can. The default tone for text messages is pretty quiet to begin with, so first check the volume for your texts messages. Go to "Menu" > "Settings" > "Audio & Ringtones" > "Message Tone" > "Volume" and adjust it how you want it. If it's still pretty quiet, you might want to change the message tone altogether, which is the same process as above except go to "Sounds" instead of "Volume" and pick a louder one. Hope this helps you, if you still have questions about it I'll be glad to help :)

LG TU550 apparently has 72 ringtones, I can only access 11.

This phone does not come with 72 ringtones, rather it has 72 "chords" that can make up a polyphonic ringtone. Most polyphonic ringers can simulate the sound of various instruments, instead of just tones. Different phones support a different number of simultaneous instruments or "chords". Your phone has more than most with its 72. hope that helps

The lg phone ux830 rings very quiet at first then gets louder after about 2 seconds, how can i make the ringtone loud from the start?

I transferred music to my LG830, and I would like to make some songs caller IDs. I can't seem to find any of my music in the "my audio" folder, though it is in the music section.
