Heh, and I even beat the admin to the response on that one. :)

Well, that's my minor bout of silliness for the day. :-)

There is a known issue with a batch of LG phones and photo messaging.
The problem is currently being worked on jointly by Xtra, Lightsurf & Telecom Mobile.
There is no ETA for the fix.

LGs shipping now should not have the problem.

Dont forget to read your terms and conditions before making any wild claims to/about anyone. (But regardless of the Ts & Cs, the CGA still applies).

I will post an update as soon as I hear anything, although if anyone hears about it before i do, feel free to post what you know.

I don't understand sorry. I read my complete phone guide and it said nothing about messaging not working? It also didnt say anything about screen burn when charging your phone...but thats a whole different story lol


thanks to everyone's responses.


also, i was given an ETA. ..and was told without a doubt it would be fixed by the 2nd week of January.


If it's going to take a lot longer than that, I do have an extended warranty on the phone..should it cover this problem for a return?

icleary: I don't understand sorry. I read my complete phone guide and it said nothing about messaging not working?

Telecoms mobile terms and conditions refer to liability for unavailable services.

It also didnt say anything about screen burn when charging your phone...but thats a whole different story lol

Start a thread and tell us about it. (Please)

Who said that?

If it's going to take a lot longer than that, I do have an extended warranty on the phone..should it cover this problem for a return?

The phone itself is unlikely to have a problem (i.e. it more than likely still performs to expectation), its the Telecom network, and how it interacts with that batch of phones that is the issue... so, i would say warranty is out, but Consumer Guarantees Act is still probably in effect for this problem.

i received a text yesterday to say the problem was solved. 10mins after, they sent another text informing me there was still problem.

ive just tried again (re above poster) and it still isn't working.



DISENCHANTED - the ETA was given to me by whoever I spoke to at *123. she was given the ETA by the guy who is fixing the problem directly.

After entering the "To" details you end up in a msg preview screen just scroll down to the field that looks like a note pad with [No Message] next to it then hit the "OK" key, from there you can add up to 256 characters.
