Looking but can not find....

I am currently using an LG vx4400 which I LOVE. Looking for similar but with speakerphone. Do not care about camera's, blue tooth, etc. Need speaker, vibrate, and great reception, & outer display. Noticed my LG gets MUCH better reception than audiovox (8600) Also not too keen on color outside display - hard to see/read.
Any one know of something coming out that fits the bill?? Wink

lx5550 vs lx5450 getting a new phone hopefully soon, and i know i wont be able to get the v710 or wuteva it is, so im stuck between these two. both have major ups and downs.

from wut i hear, the 5450 w/ alltel wont let u put wallpapers, and ringtones on ur phone w/o text messaging, and requires more time to mod
and the 5550 is on "mini re-call" for problems w/ the screen or something like that. and the color screen isnt as bright

which one would be better? both have around the same features, but i really want to be able to get ringtones and wallpapers (preferably w/o text messaging, cause my parents wont pay for it Sad). i can do w/o the camera, but it is a big plus in my book. either one would be great to have, but since im not close to the ...

Any truth to the rumor of Bluetooth for the VX8000?

OK, I saw it a couple nights ago and cannot find it again. Someone posted (maybe not on phonescoop) that LG may be delaying the VX8000 in order to add Bluetooth to it.

Any truth to this rumor?

LG LX1200

I'm new to this phone and don't understand how you positively know you have received voice mail. What kind of indications are offered. If anybody can help, I would be delighted. Thank you so much!

Traded LG LX5550 for LX5450

I loved the red LX5550 and the drive mode feature, but the reception was poor. I've got an LX5450 now, and so far the reception seems much better. Anyone else used both? Thanks.

VX 3200

Just recieved a new 3200. Is there any way of knowing when the phone is fully charged?

Is there a light (green) that will come on and say so, or is it that you just have to wait the 3½ Hours to complete charging?

Thank you.

Hear phone rign through headset

Is there any way to get the phone ring through the headset? I find that when the phone is in my pocket while wearing a headset, I cannot hear it ring! I've looked through all the menus and can't seem to mind a setting to enable this.

Thanks in advance to anyone posting a response.

Is there a way to change the AT&T Wireless text on the screen?

A friend of mine just bought this phone and wants to know if there is way to change the text that shows up on the screen of the phone. She wants to change it from "AT&T Wireless" to her own personal greeting.

Can that be done? And if so, how?

LG 8000 Launch

I went to a Verizon Wireless Technology Expo last week and talked with the LG representative that was carrying the LG 8000. After taking a peek at the cool phone, I have decided I am getting that when it comes out. He says the launch seems to be end of october early November.

VX 7000 Transfer Data

I want to transfer data back and forth between phone and pc. I tried sending ringtones to phone via wap, but I don't know how to store them once downloaded. Will a USB cable allow me to see the phone from my PC and move pics and tones in and out of folders? If so, what exactly do I need to purchase?

4500 & Ringers


Was curious if it was possible to import your own ringers into the 4500 somehow? ie, from an mp3 or whatever else.

I have a mac, but have access to a PC.
