LG's National Sales Manager for Mobile Communications, Joe McNamara said,
"LG TU500 and TU550 have received Telstra's Blue Tick to make it easier for
customers to recognise that they have been tested and recommended for rural
handheld coverage. Extreme reliability and low failure rates of the handsets
have contributed to the success of the phone and further demonstrates LG's
commitment to expanding national mobile coverage."
