LG CU320 Video and Music Cell Phone

We're sorry, but the LG CU320 is not currently available. What are the hottest cell phone deals available right now, including free cell phones? Use the Cell Phone Plan Finder to check out the top phones and associated wireless service plans.

The LG CU320 is a candybar style slider phone that closes to a comfortable rounded unit with the keyboard in its stowed position. A large high resolution color display dominates the front of the phone. That big screen is a key element in the 3G capabilities of the CU320. One of the technology advancements is the ability to view streaming video clips or surf the Web at up to 384 Kbps. The communications capability supports Cingular's new UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) and lower speed EDGE (Enhanced Data GSM Environment) high speed data networks.

Another use for a high resolution display is to view the still pictures and videos you take yourself using the 1.3 megapixel digital camera. In camcorder mode, you can capture up to 25 minutes of video at 15 frames per second in the 3GP format. Sometimes moving pictures tell the story so much better than snapshots.

Another part of the multimedia experience is music. The LG CU320 comes with a built-in MP3 player and stereo speakers so you can enjoy your tunes when you're out and about. While built-in memory totals 64 MB, there is also a slot that accepts expandable memory in the TransFlash memory card format.

Messaging is fully supported with SMS text messaging, plus multimedia messaging to send and receive pictures and videos. There is a POP3 Email client for standard email. You'll also get AOL, Yahoo! and ICQ instant messengers pre-loaded.

As small and easy as this phone is to hold, there are times when you need your hands free for safety reasons or convenience. You have the option to turn on the speakerphone, or clip a Bluetooth headset on your ear and put the phone in your pocket.

Other handy features include a voice memo function that lets you record up to 160 minutes, a 500 contact phone book with up to 5 entries per contact plus 2 email addresses. Talk time is up to 240 minutes or 4 hours.

OK, this sounds like a great deal but you've really got your heart set on a different model cell phone perhaps a different carrier. No problem. You'll find great deals on exactly what you are looking for at Cell Phone Plans Finder.
