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?

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...

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.

DEMAND that LG bring back DRIVING MODE!

After verifying with Verizon and LG that Driving Mode was dropped because of bluetooth, I explained to LG that some of us do NOT want to walk around with an earpiece because we have 3 ft of long hair...and we don't want the trouble of having to buy another piece of equipment to keep track of and make sure has a charge!

BESIDES WHICH, so far bluetooth sucks for reception and clarity from what I have seen when others use it.

So, the good news is, LG said they have had SO MANY complaints about DRIVING MODE having been dropped that they are thinking of putting it back on at least one basic phone for those of us who do NOT like bluetooth!

Some states are also passing laws that will prohibit you from using a cell phone UNLESS you have som...

VX, AX, or UX. What is the difference?

I am currently researching phones for myself and cannot find any information regarding the difference between VX, AX, and UX. Sometimes the same model has two of these options. Does anyone know the answer?

Using the microsd.

Ok here I go again.

After a lot of frustration I finally figured out how and where to insert the microsd into my LG phone, but now I can not figure out how to play the mp3's I have on the card. I get a little microsd card icon at the top of my screen but where do I go now to access the files?
