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.

I get great sound on my lg dare calls but the reception is poor. Sometimes caller on other end cuts out. Is the a way to get better reception. Current carrier is Verizon.


Your problem isn't your service provider-its your phone! I have a different LG phone than you, but from my own experience and what i have heard from many people who have LG phones, they all have reception problems. LG phones have terrible antennas in their phones. I'm trying to work on a solution to that now, if its possible. Contact me(True Love in DC) in a week to see if i discovered any solutions. In the meantime, a good thing to know about reception with ANY phone is this: the antenna is always at the top of your phone. Avoid holding or placing your hand and fingers near the top of your phone. And NEVER bend over while talking on the phone as u will be pointing your phone towards the ground. This almost ALWAYS cuts off your reception or even disconnects your call in progress. Learn the best reception spots in and around your home and other places you may be at too. Avoid walking around while talking on the phone. Certain buildings or parts of buildings play a part in your reception as well as certain lighting in the building. And finally, atmospheric conditions(storms, cloud cover, etc) are a big contributer in reception problems!

Reception is very poor. Grounding issues? Please


Reception has little to do with grounding. The ground plan is for transmitting. As long as the coax is connected and is in good standing, it should receive fine regardless of grounding.

There are a few reasons you may have bad reception.
  1. Turn the RF GAIN all the way up. This is your receive sensitivity.
  2. Squelch is too high. It should only be turned up enough to cut out the background noise.
  3. Poor antenna. If the antenna is cheap, and not made well, this could be the problem.
  4. Not enough of the antenna above the vehicle. It needs to be at least 60% of the antenna above the vehicle.
Hope this helps!

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.

I bought this same phone off ebay but they will not work properly in North America.I have talked to different sources and the most important Network band here is(gsm850) which this phone does not have, so in North America you get a very weak signal strength.

In London, Uk. I have poor reception of channel 5. have got recently a one for all powered aerial. how do I set it up? Model sv-9140-00-002


Your reception would be much improved by using a free to air digital set top box - only about £20. If you are in east London especially near docklands channel 5 reception with a conventional aerial gives a lot of problems. sv-9140-00-002 is an interior aerial booster - I doubt whether this will improve things much. Best solution is a good outside aerial - if you live in flats is there no communal aerial available?

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.
