Blue Tooth keeps dropping
I've had the LG VX-8700 since February 2008. It kept dropping the blue tooth and so I brought the phone into Verizon about two weeks ago and they swapped it. It's happening again. Is it possible that it's the phone? If I remove the blue tooth, and then add it back, it works. However, I noticed that if I am not using the phone and it's idle, the blue tooth drops. As a test, I press the end key, but I don't hear beeps coming from the blue tooth or through the phone. I don't know what to make of this. I check the blue tooth menu and it has the option if I want to disconnect. Is anyone else experiencing this or having issues with this phone?
I know of a software "Ultima...
Wont hold charge
Suddenly "No Service" and no 1x coverage
After a bit of digging I noticed I'm only getting an EVDO signal and not a 1x signal the majority of the time. I get a 1x very rarely and for very brief moments, and during these times I can make calls.
Up until this happened I could make calls pretty much whenever I wanted. My bills are paid and nothing else has changed.
Any ideas? The local Verizon shop wasn't very helpful and just want money to replace the phone.

Plantronics ear piece
Unlocking the Bluetooth
I have never received a picture so I am not sure what you see.
Bluetooh Phonebook Transfer?
I'm assuming this is one of the things Verizon has disabled. Am I missing something? Also, would a newer phone like the Venus have this problem?
shutting off the beep with incoming text
I have to wonder what the point of a vibrate mode is, if you still have a ear-piercing beep that goes along with it.
Help! I am trying to clear my number from an 8700 for resale.
Would you recommend getting one?
I was thinking about getting it, but I decided not to because it would mean that they would have to give me a different cover for the back. It would make it bulky and I like the slim design. Did you ever get the battery? If you did, how ...
Main screen goes black
This especially seems to happen when my phone sits in my car during the day or is in my pants pocket for a hour or more. The only thing I can think of its that its something to do with the phone being warm.
Also, when it does work the screen isn't as sharp as normal and pics look like there from an old school phone.
Where can I buy another one of these?
I cannot find an answer to this.
phone is straight tweaking...help!
1. "Camera Start Error" every now and then. Not all the time though.
2. Power/End button only works from time to time. It will go a while working fine to cancel out of menus and whatnot, but then will just stop working all of a sudden.
3. When I try to preview ringtones, there is no sound now.
All of this has started in the past week or two. Do these sound like things that can be resolved by updating the phone software? Anything help is much appreciated.
How the heck do I delete ringtones???
just got my phone this week so maybe i am wrong in my thinking. but i erased a ringtone that i loaded on from my computer this way.
vibrate for certain contacts
