Mingo Wireless

A few weeks ago, I ported my number to Mingo Wireless. After doing so, I realized I needed either a Sprint PCS or, Vision PCS. I'd like to know, is this where I get my additional plan from? I'm confused!

LG290C Problem with photo sending

I have an LG290C phone. Recently, it has stopped sending photos. I can take photos and receive them, but whenever I try to send any the screen says "invalid destination address." I have spent hours on the phone with Tracfone and have also contacted LG. No one seems to be able to help. LG suggested I get a new phone, which I have no problem doing (it's about time), but I hate to lose all my photos. Does anyone know how I could retrieve at least some of my photos?

LG Revere features T9 - Any suggestions?

Confused I've had my LG Revere phone for a couple weeks now, and still can't figure out how to save the T9 option as my default for texting. Whenever I text, I have to go through multiple steps just to be able to text in T9. This is very frustrating, as my old Sprint phone simply saved the T9 option when I chose it, and every time I texted, I didn't have to switch to it like I do with the Revere. Does anyone know how to save the T9 format as default for texting????

LG Olympus C

Just got this phone and have run into a problem. ALL my contacts disappeared. I hit the contacts icon and it says no contacts. Yet when I go to the contacts icon and touch it..then go to favorites..hit the menu button and then search...the keyboard comes up..I hit the letter A and then search and the contacts I used to have under the letter A appear I hit the letter B and search and all the old contacts under B appear.

These are the same contacts I had before so I know ALL my contacts are somewhere in this phone. Anyone have any idea where? When I search under J for example every contact I have with a J anywhere in it appears. Once these are do I replace them in my contacts list?

I am really lost. Someone please ...

Assistance needed

I just got My LG CF360 and have 2 questions

1. When I end a call by pushing the end key it hangs up but then I get a message...UNKNOWN ERROR. It seems that when I close the cover down this doesn't happen. Obviously closing the cover works but why does this message appear and can I get rid of it?

2. I want to take pictures of the people on my contacts list and put the pictures with the corresponding names so that when they call their name and picture are displayed. It looks from the material I have read that this is possible but I don't know how to do it. Can someone advise me?

mp3 causes phone to shutdown/restart

LG vx8350 - use it as an mp3 player in my car all the time. After adding some new music, during playback it started shutting down/restarting for no reason. After a few frustrating days, I discovered the player would hit a particular song -- that would trigger the shutdown/restart. Removed the song from my SD card. No more problems.

Can anyone explain to me HOW an mp3 file can cause this behavior?

LG Lotus awaiting data refresh?

Just got an LG lotus from sprint. I was trying to change the buttons on the carousel. I don't have a data plan, so I have no use for the bubbles, but I see no reason to need data just to change the buttons on the carousel. One button is Call Log, which I would need no data plan for. I read that a lot of people had the problem of seeing the "awaiting data refresh", but have yet to find an answer that's worked for me. Is there any way to fix this problem without a data plan? Any help would be much appreciated.

LG VX 8360 problem with broadband connect

I have a problem using the broadband connect on this phone. I have been in to the Verizon store and they were great, spending 2 hours trying to help me. They upgraded the software in the phone also. Still the broadband connect does not work.

Any thoughts? Why should this stop working, the phone is not that old? I need this to tether to my laptop.
