    Bought a new LG 990 on plan with Three - phone dead after 7 days - got another new one - dead after about 7 days - recharged it and dead the next morning. battery charge shows 3.2v but phone wont start up. Is there a batch problem or is it me . No vibrate on and screen set to 80% Is there a batch problem or is it me . Only make 3 or 4 calls a day and get the same amount in.

    Hi I bought a viewty a week ago, I fully chared the battery left plugged in for more than a day. Then i unplugged it and switched it off overnight. In the morning the phone battery was completely empty and i couldnt start up the phone, so i had to plug it back in the charger. Im gonna ask for a replacement handset.

    I was going out with the phone battery in full-charged condition. I put it in my pocket. No calls, no SMS, and it just standby in my pocket. About 1 hour next, I saw the power remains 3 bars (missing 1 bar out), wow! that's pretty quick! Then I had an activity in basement, the place where the GSM signal is very low, it took about half an hour. Guess what? I picked the phone out from my pocket, and it already dead, I couldnt power it up because the battery is totally out! In normal condition, since I use this phone, the battery life is only about 12 hours (standby mode, not many activities). Well, I shall complaint to LG since they said the battery will last at least 430 hours in standby mode.

    My viewty is goin nuts these days. Even when i have charged the whole day, but once im outside, the batt can only last about 30 mins. And due to this it will swtched off by itself. But when i swtched it on again, it will show full bars, but when i answer 1 call, it will swiched off again. Is this problem related to the battery? i feel so helpless whe im outside and my phonein off mode.

    I have exactly the same problem, my Viewty switches itself off often in the middle of a call, very frustrating, also I can only use it for maybe 3 or 4 text messages and then the battery needs charging.It hasnt always been like this but it is getting worse.--- please help

    My phone battery on lasts for 7 hours after being on charge overnight. Its annoying because the phone itself is great.

  • Anonymous May 03, 2009

    its ridiculus i know they say to let the battery run down by itself before charging but know my battery just doesnt last ... it did when i first bought it but know it doesnt :(

  • SMLG May 05, 2009

    I bought my Viewty second hand but in excellent condition. Its been a nightmare for the last week, battery going flat by teatime eveyday.I have it in a leather case with a magnet closing mechanism. Could this be what is draining the battery life? Im sick of charging it everynight.

  • Anonymous May 26, 2009

    the battery does not even last for 2 minutes of call, just receiving an sms kills the battery i can do nothing with this piece of ------ and i truly regret ever choosing this one item from LG.


    the battery on this phone is not good at all. the worst thing is that the manufacture is not willing to deal with aspect of the phone which is a great phone after all. Maybe LG should stick to what they are good at house hold items.

I saw on another forum two good tips.

1. Do not use a case with a magnetic clip.

2. Take off the battery cover and put tape over the two small etched squares that you can see one at each end on the inside of the cover.

I did this and up to now my battery has doubled its life. Still two bars after 1.5 days of medium use.

I found my KU990 discharges at least 3 times faster when I keep it in a phone holder with magnetic clip cover.
Once I changed this phone holder (on my belt) to a non-magnetic one, it resolved this battery discharge issue. Now I can stay without charging it for more than 30 hours (so far tested).

My name is Ash and im an electronics engineer in bolton.uk. I have the same problems with the battery life lasting no more rthan 8 hours fronm full charge. The problems lies with the leather carry case with a magnetic latch which tricks the phone screen in to continuosly staying on. Also anythinh magnetic/ metallic does the same.

I have the same problem, but i noticed in few of my other gadgets that charging batteries overnight drains them of their standby time.
So, in my opinion you should never charge it overnight and go to sleep.Charge it and remove the phone from the charger.

My battery charging com very leat

Posted on Aug 21, 2012

This might not help you but,

My viewty dies REALLY quickly if I charge it using the USB cable or my LG310 charger. If I charge like this then it last about 1-2 hours... When I charge it using the wall charger then it lasts a day or 2 so I guess it must be something to do with the way the other charge or the USB cable work... Very strange I know but happens everytime.

The battery ran out today, now when i try to charge it, it just flashes on and off quickly displaying the lg logo


Assuming your battery is good, you may have bent the contact tab under the battery. Open the device, gently bend the metal contact outward, and replace the battery. Don't push down on the battery when you install it.

Viewty's battery loses charge very quickly


with rechargeable batteries you have to fully charge it up then completely run the battery dead for the first 3 or 4 times this is what extends the battery life. I have had an LG viewty for 16 months and only charge my phone twice a week. this is a golden rule for all rechargeable batteries

LG viewty ku990 - no battery life and phone gets really hot


Hi

I dont know if this will help you, but it helped me. I had the same problem, with phone not holding charge and getting really hot both during and after complete charge.
I needed my memorycard from my LG to my other phone, so I took it out, and off course the phone needed to be charged so I charged it, and... it did not get hot at all, and when it was finished, the charge lasted a day and a half!! Now the problem is I cant use the memorycard anymore in my Viewty :S Win/Loose situation i guess....
