Question about LG CU500 Cellular Phone

LG CU-500 Poor Reception

Recently bought a CU-500 unlocked off Ebay. Phone seems to work fine except that reception is not nearly as good as my previous LG 4011. I get 4 bars in the house on the 4011 and almost nothing on the CU-500. The CU-500 works fine when there is a strong signal. Anything I can do to improve the reception (short of getting an amplifier for the house).

    My original cu500 worked wonderfully, then I had to send it in cause I managed to lock it up, so they sent me a refurbished one, and my reception stinks now! If I want to have a decent conversation, I have to have it on speakerphone and hold it up in some magical hot spots in my house.

Try updating your roaming profile. This helps reception on a Verizon phone.

Get service at my home?


You must live in a "shadow". Not every area can get cell reception. I have the same problem. No cell reception at my home, but 1/4 mile up the street, it's fine.

i have the same phone and carrier. mine is at full bars all the time. i did call t-mobile and the sent it codes to get the MMS and internet working properly. this might be the reason for my reception. it won't hurt to call them so they can configure your phone to t-mobile service.
good luck

No reception on cell phone "No Network Service"


You need to check the RF. The RF is a component that pick up the signal. It is usually placed on the upper portion of the phone where there's a small exhaust so that the RF could pick up the signal better.

Once the RF gets wet, the component might become defective.

You need a phone tech to check or change the RF.

Have a great day!

LG Vu CU915, poor reception


Press 277634#*# - then Modem Setting - then Network Mode - then Network Mode - then select 2G Only. This will turn off 3G and you will now be using 2G or Extended Network. Either or, I used to have the same problem, but after making that simple change I have an extra "bar" on my phone.

Lg kg800 will not connect to ATT


you first need to know the network coming with the first before buying it...and what network AT&T works on.

for example

LG KG800 works on these networks

850/1800/1900 or 900/1800/1900...you need to look at the box to see which network your phone comes with.
