Notes[edit]

  • Used in NBC's hit show, The Office.
  • Camera 1.3 MP 1280*960, Video QVGA 320*240.[citation needed]
  • Actual standby time is 2–4 days with 3G disabled.[citation needed]
  • The phone is incompatible with Mac OS X, including iSync.[citation needed]
  • The CU500 is sold in Australia and Canada as the TU500.[citation needed]
  • Although the LG CU500 is capable of updating its firmware over the air,[4] there is no known way to upgrade the CU500 to the CU500v.[citation needed]
  • Users must choose "allow" or "deny" every time a Java ME application accesses a data network. The only way to get rid of this inconvenience is through an unsupported firmware modification.[citation needed]

Software update[edit]

The LG CU500v is a software upgrade to the CU500, adding video calling features supported by AT&T's high-speed HSDPA broadband network. Providing even faster rates than UMTS for streaming TV, radio, and online services, the video calling feature integrates in a rotating 1.3-megapixel camera to take clips or still photos at up to 1280 x 960 px in resolution. Consumers can listen to MP3s or MobiRadio through Bluetooth A2DP profile for stereo music without wires.[7]
