How to fix annoying Verizon blinker: CDM8600

Menu > Settings > System > NAM Set > Auto NAM > Set to yes (6-4-3-1-yes).

This works only as long as your phone is on, once you power off then on again, the setting is lost. Setting this to "Auto NAM" should not have any side effects.

For those who don't know what NAM is:

Number Assignment Module. The NAM is the electronic memory in the wireless phone that stores the telephone number and an electronic serial number.

Audiovox 8600 and 8900 earpiece issues

Ok folks here is the situation.

I've run across a enormous amount of 8600 and 8900 phones coming back with issues on the earpieces. This has been happening over the past 2-3 months. I thought it was a fluke but it is getting to the point where I don't want to sell the current AVX models.

The sound quality in each one of these phones returned is absolute garbage. The speakerphone is pretty much NON-existant.

What the hell happened to AVX?????? When did they start to go the path of Moto?

Ideas? Comments?

CHARGING CRADLE for 8910/9950/9900?? I'm pissed

Well, My old phone battery is getting weak and I'm really really excited 'bout the new ones, 'specially the 9900, but nowhere in any site can I see it comes with or will even have available a CHARGING CRADLE!!!!

8600 update to fix problems?

I called Audiovox today to find out when the next firmware upgrade will be avalible. It's avalible! I was told my provider "Verizon" has it and Audiovox does not know why it has not been offerd for install yet. After a hour on the phone explaining this to many Verizon reps I gave up since each time I was told Verizon does not have the firmware upgrade yet from Audiovox and when they do they will let me know.... and I should check back in a couple weeks. Yes this pissed me off! The phone seems like a nice phone if the simple problems get fixed ASAP.
I have tried this way, TWO forms Verizon reps can fill out that Verizon has is to get things fixed
1) "Verizon voice of the customer"
2) "Trouble Ticket"
and it does not seem to get much acti...

I'm considering buying a 9550 or 8910 with Sprint's service. I do not intend to pay extra for the vision service or anything else if possible.

With a data cable, can one:
1. synchronize contacts
2. download ringtones
3. download pictures/video

...or can one do any of the above without paying extra for vision?

Is it possible to customize the graphics in the menu or LCD screen in front? For example, I noticed the picture of the 8910 has an analog looking clock. Can that be done with the 9550?
