30,000 LG Glimmer cellphones recalled due to problems with calls to 911

30,000 LG Glimmer cellphones recalled due to problems with calls to 911
Feeling that it is better to be safe than sorry, LG has decided to recall 30,000 units of the Glimmer handset because of problems getting through to the 911 emergency number. Actually, to date there has been only one reported incident and no injuries occurred. The units recalled have difficulties keeping a connection to the 911 call centers or the voice quality has been poor. The models affected by the recall are those with software versions T83LGV03 and T83LGV04. To check if you have a model that has been recalled, go into the phone's menu and select “Settings”,  then “Phone Information” then “Version.” While the release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that phone owners are being contacted by LG Electronics MobileComm, or their carrier, to arrange a firmware upgrade, it probably would be a good idea to place a call to your carrier to make sure that you do receive the new software if you qualify.
