While things like copy and paste, multimedia messaging and video calling are nice extras to have, there’s really only one thing that’s most important when it comes to a reliable cellphone: the 911 functionality. Evidently, around 30,000 LG 830 Spyder handsets aren’t having the easiest time dialing for help, with a product recall noting that a huge swath of ’em have “difficulty sustaining a connection or have poor voice quality on calls to emergency 911.” It should be noted, however, that LG’s actually being really, really proactive here, as it has only received a single report (and no injuries) to date. The Spyder phones affected have software versions T83LGV03 and T83LGV04, and you can hit the read link if you suspect yours is amongst that 30,000.
