While Cingular bills it as a replacement program, they have partnered with LG to replace all LG 1300 antennas for current owners. By visiting the replacement web site linked below, LG 1300 owners will be sent a new antenna that is designed to improve antenna performance.
Cingular has actually been replacing LG C1300 antennas for quite awhile, we’ve been monitoring reports of users automatically being sent new antennas since November of last year. However, the launch of an official web site for users to request a replacement antenna indicates a more widespread problem, or potentially later revisions having different problems. Regardless, all LG C1300 owners of Cingular-branded handsets are encouraged to order a free replacement.
We are not able to determine if this also applies to C1300s from the former AT&T Wireless, but because there is zero hardware difference between the two models, there is no potential for harm for ordering a replacement for former AT&T C1300s.
