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.

I have an LG KC550 and the date on my phone reads 59/83 so i decided to see why and while attempting to open up the calendar option, the phone restarts and i am unable to access the calendar at all! So when i click on date and time in Settings, i tried to type in the real date and it just leaves 59/83 coming up each time! HELP! Thanks!

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.

LG env3 phone


I have an issue with my Lg env3 phone. I have had the phone for about two years and it works wonderful. However two days ago when I flipped open to the keyboard, the screen flickered and went black. The screen currently is black and I would like it to get up and running again.

Thank you,

Does the USB Data/Charger cable for the LG Prime GS390, actually transfer data such as pictures to my computer or is it only for charging?

LG Rumor Touch

i can not find anything specific about what types of ringers are supported. i have transfered a couple of songs and ringers from an old phone via blue-tooth but can not figure it out. if anyone has any advice it would be very helpful. the files transfered are mp3's if that might help.
I sent the files via a mms and success but that seems very labor intensive. If blue-tooth will work that would be better.

LG VX-8360 and thre Display items

Question about my new LG VX8360:

With the previous piece of junk (LG Accolade)I had, I was able to reposition all of the items in the Menu: Tools, Media Center,MyPictures, V-Cast Music, Messaging, etc etc

Since the selection always starts out in the center, I wanted to put the icon of the most used feature right in the middle of the display and put the Voicemail to the left and the Messages to the Right.

This new 8360 does not seem to allow me to reposition. Or am I wrong and need to find it somewhere?

LG VX-8360 eats up the battery very quickly

My LG VX8360 came by FedEx yesterday and I have been spending time inputting my contacts and setting my preferences.

My first observation was that the battery power went down 1/4 way just from me doing that -- I made either one or no phone calls.

As a consequence, I have been keeping the charger plug stuck into the phone here at my desk while I work.

Is this something common about this model? Is it an aberration? Should I consider sending this phone back and getting a replacement?

I thought I read a review by a customer raving about this phone because it could go so long without a recharge.

Chocolate Touch A2DP Bluetooth Streaming Audio Phone to Computer

I recently bought an asus bluetooth dongle for my computer (it's running windows 7 x86). I got everything setup with the dongle (it transfers files, can make calls, etc...). The problem I'm having is...

I tried to connect to the phone using it as a bluetooth headset so that I can play music from my phone through the computer speakers. It connects fine and both the phone and the computer recognize the connection. But when I try to play music through the computer speakers it just continually stutters though the song...

Here's the caveat though, one of the albums does work to play though it. I don't know if it's because it was the first song album I played after making the connection or not, but it works fine. All the others thou...

Can a VZ prepaid phone be used on a VZ posgtpaid account?

Hello- Since my phone is dying before Verizon will let me buy a new one at the discounted price, I bought an Accolade VX-5600 on EBay, but got the prepaid instead of the postpaid version. Does anyone know if the prepaid version can be activated and used on a postpaid account? Any help would be appreciated.

LG Rumor Touch

I just got a LG Rumor Touch. My previous device was a HTC 6800 (Mogul). I'm trying to get all my stuff transferred and I have a couple of problems. One, when I try to copy some ringtones from the card to the phone (they are midi files) it says that they are unrecognizable or some such. They play on the phone but it won't let me transfer them to be used as ringtones. Is there a way to overcome this? Second, I have a similar problem with some videos in a MP4 formatt. It will play the videos but won't transfer to the phone. Is there a way to get this done? Thanks.
