Discussing LG Optimus 3D ghost call problems
We wonder how many of you are owners of the LG Optimus 3D smartphone and opted to download the update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread? It appears that some users who’ve updated to the Gingerbread OS are now beset by ‘ghost call’ problems and we’d like to know if this issue has affected you.
Although the upgrade to Gingerbread for Optimus 3D users promised improvements such as quicker 3G connectivity, a new video editor and better video quality it seems that some users have gained an added extra from the update and that this addition is definitely not a bonus. What it comes down to is that some Optimus 3D running Gingerbread users are now missing calls because their units neither ring and to make matters worse, do not even give indications of a missed call.
This was brought to our attention by Phone Arena who tell how the XDA Developers forum discusses this issue and how it could be caused by a faulty baseband. Flashing a different version may well get things back to normal or heading back to Android Froyo but this is pretty frustrating for those who want to make the most of their smartphones and the latest OS available for them. Other possible solutions include performing a complete wipe several times or using software to force the CPU to run constantly at 600MHz or more but not all users have found these moves worked for them. You can see a video below this story about this ghost call problem on the Optimus 3D from a user who’s had the problem after the Gingerbread update themselves.
Apparently LG has been made aware of this ‘ghost call’ problem but no official patch has been made available yet. We’d really like to hear from you if you’ve upgraded to Gingerbread on your Optimus 3D. Has everything worked smoothly for you or have you noticed any problems, ghost calls or otherwise? Why not let us know by sending us your comments below.
