    when clicking on synchronise.Phone shows connected and then almost immediately says "disconnected" Can not connect phone to pc after downloading Lg suite at all, do I need to buy a memory card. I have taken the advice to reduce the multitasking menu to 2, this allowed it to connect for a second and then says on the phone "disconnected"

I have finally tracked down the reason MY U990 would not connect (in data service )
It seems if you have more than 3 sub menus open it will NOT connect....

To fix this go to the ‘multitask’ icon in the top right hand corner of the screen.(the icon is a 3x3 grid with the top right hand square larger than the rest and coloured blue) I found by clicking on the items listed I was able to reduce the list to 2.
Hey presto connects just fine.

I figured it out! You have to go into the options menu in your phone, and into the "connectivity" settings. Change it to mass storage setting, not crappy data whatever setting. So satisfying.

Hello dear. Please, give the name of the software or the driver that will allow connect internet on my computer via my LG phone (my phone is connected to my computer via usb cable). Thanks.

Hi Youssouf,

Are you trying to use your 3g Data connection from your phone to give internet access to your computer?

If so this is called USB Tethering. you need to go into Settings -> Network -> Tethering.

If you give me the type of LG Phone you have I can provide you with a step by step process on how to do this.

Looking for USB Software for LG Rhythm

If you're using Vista run Windows Update with the phone plugged into your computer via USB. You should see an optional update appear pertaining to an LG driver or mobile phone driver (can't remember exactly what it says).

If you're using XP, download Microsoft Active Sync 4.5 and then run Windows Update with the phone plugged into your computer.

Cant connect to computer via USB connection. Software wont open or reads no phone connected.

You probably have the USB selection set incorrectly on the phone. Go to Menu, then Connectivity, then USB, then select "Data Service". The should fix it.

Cannot connect LG U990 phone to the computer

unlike nokia phones, Lg's a bit comlicated when it comes to PC suite operations, anyway it doesnt give options for the connections, as a external memory or USB mode. we can find it only by going through PC suite.
For copying, open the contents in PC suite and alternativley select all the files u want to copy and jus drag them directly to contents folders. even i faced the same problem when i tried to copy, paste the items, but dragging is working.

LG u990

you don't need the CD if you want to access the phone as a mass storage device

go to >
Phone settings > Connectivity > (select) Mass Storage

then try connecting to a pc again. plug the USB cable.

TAKE NOTE than only the external memory (micro SD) is accessible when connected to a PC. and NOT the Internal Builtin memory of the phone

The_Wise23 - delete and try reinstalling your lg usb modem if that does not work call your provider and see if they can assist you more.

chinesebox - the best thing to do is uninstall all lg software and then reinstall it.
