A few questions regarding LG

I use virgin Mobile and am the owner of an LG Aloha.
Aside from the issue of it not having any built-in speech IE: to check the battery life, missed calls blah blah blah, it's an all right phone. My problems do not lie within operating the phone—I'm blind and I can do something simple as dial a number, but what i cannot do is change the ringtones and jack the volume up (it's too low!), and change it so that it rings and vibrates.
I've contacted customer Service at Virgin Mobile (they must've thought I was deaf and blind as they directed me to the TTY portion of the phone), I explained that I did not need TTY; I just wanted something with limited speech, but to no avail. They said they'd get back to eme eventually and they ...

Battery Life

What, if anything, can one reasonably do to extend battery life for the 8300? Reviews said it had an OK life, but it looks like a day or two is about it, and that's without heavy use and no music.
Will turning off backlighting make a noticeable difference? Could part of the short life be due to my putting in a number of new contacts?
Makes me long for my ancient Motorola 60i.

has anyone heard anything about this phone? Sprint is apparently releasing it soon, but I cant find anything on Phone Scoop, LG's site or Sprint's website about it. I'm guessingf it's just replacing the 150, but i can't find anything on it (as of yesterday)

Text entry -- word mode

Need a good explanation or online tutorial of how to use Word mode when entering text in a text message.

I have an LG VX8600, which I love.

But can't figure out how to use the Word mode properly -- don't understand the logic of how/why the different letters come up based on what I've entered.

Anyone know of more detailed instructions than what comes with the phone? Or a link to an online demo?

Thanks much

Possible move from Nokia to LG

I am getting ready to get a new GSM phone with AT&T. Up until now, I have only used Nokia, but I really am not impressed by their new line.

Anyone have any thoughts on quality between the 2 vendors?

Also looking for info on sync'ing w/Outlook for Calendar and Contacts. I like the Nokia address book, but the calendar has issues with recurring events. Can someone provide insight on how well the LG syncs?

Thanks for your help

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.
