LG CU500 Unit Converter

I was using the unit converter (found in the tools menu) on my LG CU500 to convert fl. oz. to ml and quarts to liters and discovered that the phone is using British units and not American. Any suggestions on how to switch the phone to American units?
Good thing I wasn't programming statellites for NASA.

Cleaning Keys on VX2000

My old VX2000 has become my wife's. The keys have some black grunge(sorry that's the most tehcnical word I can find) on them. I'd like to either buy a new key pad for it, or find a way to clean the stuff off.

Any good advice.

Question about the CG225

I have a friend who had a 1400 and had to do an insurance claim and they sent him the 225. He downloads ring tones all the time but this phone will only let him have two. Is there anyway to be able to have more on the phone without deleting the two that are already downloaded? Confused

Driving Mode Help!

I just dropped and busted my BELOVED LGVX4500...

So without thinking I buy this new fancy LGVX8300.

Come to find out, it is just about USELESS to me since I cannot use the speaker phone when the phone is CLOSED, as in DRIVING MODE!!!

Now the store where I bought the phone says they discontinued this because people complained.

Well I can't imagine this! This is true handsfree mode without having to use some dumb earpiece that you need to keep track of, and also when I find myself in the radio studio or the statehouse I don't have to open the phone and make noise while fishing for the vibrate button. You simply press a button on the outside.

It is THE MOST AWKWARD thing to walk around with the phone in speaker mode, OPEN positio...

8600 - different colors?

anybody know if the 8600 will ever be offered in different colors? it seems after this long it's likely that it won't. would sure help with the finger print issues (although it's really not that big of a concern with me). i'm looking to purchase one very soon.

2 questions..

1> Can the fusic be used in areas where there is analog service?

2. Will the phone take other ear-buds than the ones that come with the phone?...or are they different sizes?

LG= Defective

As a dealer, I try to give every phone manufacturer an equal shot at my approval.

I will sell the phone just knowing that it will work. Then the ones that come back, because they dont work, get on my bad list.

Why would I want to sell a customer a phone I know will just be defective? They will just bring it back, or cancel service all together.

I have noticed that no manufacturer is perfect. I also have seen certain phones which have more problems than others.

LG, by far, has had the most problems. Reception is lame, the phones do undesireable things. Just the quality overall is poor.

At first I thought maybe LG phones just were not compatible with Sprint, but I have Verizon customers coming in all the time wanting to switch j...

vx 8600 sound player error?

Shocked my sound recorder records songs fine, but when i play them back only 5 seconds plays -- however, i know the whole recording is intact because i can take the file off the phone and play it with a QCP player.

what's going on? is this a bug?

8300 vs 8600 Charge while in use?

Getting ready to buy a new phone. I think I read in these forums that the 8600 can't be used while charging in the car.

Does the 8300 have this same limitation?

Thanks in advance . . .

Recommendation: Bluetooth/stereo music using Verizon phones??

I am a frustrated loyal Verizon customer. I returned my KRZR last week because Verizon told me that it would work with my new bluetooth stereo headphones. It does not!

I walked out of the store with the LG Chocolate, which on the surface seems like a nice, quality, feature-filled phone. It is, but it has "issues." Specifially bluetooth kinda stalls at times; the thumb wheel is cumbersome/troublesome; and the keypad buttons are difficult to use. I shall return this unit also.

The problem becomes which of Verizon's offerings will provide this funcationality. My research has uncvered basically 4 phones, and I'm looking for some practical opinions on usability per the following 3 basic requirements: (1) good battery life, prefer 4-5...

LG VX8700 (SHINE) help?

I finally got my new VX8700. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can turn to move my old ringtones off my computer and on to the new phone? I had my own ringtones and pics on my old LG VX8000 and used the DATAPILOT file transfer system from Susteen to make my own ringtones and transfer files/ backup my phone. However Susteen seems to have no idea when they will have the updates and cable available to do that with the VX8700. I tried the DATAPILOT Bluetooth adapter and while it recognizes the phone it is unable to transfer data with the phone or vice versa.
