speaker-independent / voice digit dialing

What is meant by "speaker-independent / voice digit dialing"? I am looking for a blue tooth phone that has voice dialing (why pay the company extra?). If you're gonna have a blue tooth in your ear and the phone is in your pocket, briefcase or glove box, why must one get it out to dial? Can this phone dial through blue tooth via voice?

Voice Mail notification won't go away!

The icon at the top of the screen that notifies you that you have a voice mail message is showing even though I have checked and deleted all messages.

There's more to the story. On a whim, I checked my
"Messages" screen where the voice mail message count is shown and it shows one message remaining.

I have checked and deleted all the messages so I don't know what to do to get rid of the "ghost message" and have the icon disappear.

For AT&T people, is there a way to manage this online? I would love to access my voice mail stuff online and make the adjustments there.

Any thoughts?

V3xx VOICE Call Quality

For those of you, like me, who have an issue with the v3xx's earpiece tone sounding muffled... I FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!

Go to your music player.... pick a song (even if its just one of the ringtone songs)... let it play.... then go into options.... music set-up.... BASS BOOST... TURN IT TO OFF... and there you go!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now call someone and check-out the difference. Much better clarity. Still has the basic "enhanced sound" this phone comes with.... but now the over-bassy sound is gone and I can hear/understand everything everyone is saying.

fm transmitter

Does anybody know where to find a compatible FM transmitter for this phone? I bought one at Best Buy but the phone doesn't recognize it for music playback. I really want this to work on my stereo. Any thoughts?

Notification of voice mail

Is there any (automatic) sound notification for incoming voice mail? Why don't I get my voice mail notification (on screen) until I get a second voice mail which is sometimes hours or days later?

external display caller ID

Is there any way to change the text color of the external display? It's very difficult to see the caller ID when the text is in the stock light blue color. This also happens when changing ringer settings from the smart keys. Any help would be appreciated.

change in functionality

I got a Razr v3xx. I noticed right away that I could look at the files using the phone by itself. I could also have sworn that the phone would load my pictures from the PC. The battery meter did not work so I exchanged it for another one. The one I received was branded AT&T (instead of Cingular). It won’t display any of my pictures (because they are too big). And I can now only see the individual files if the phone is plugged into the computer. Has anybody else come across this change in functionality? I would like to find a way to have the phone display some pictures of my own (no matter the size) shrink to fit. What sort of utility programs are out there? I wonder if they changed the firmware. Anyway, it is still a good phone....

This question has nothing to do with the Motorola V3xx. If one has a cell phone that DOES NOT have a memory card is it possible to download pictures to that cell phone and use them as a wallpaper? If so, will this take up additional memory on the cell phone?

I am talking about the Motorola V557 cell phone. Thanks

phone shutting off by itself?

Ok....I've had this phone for a couple weeks and I've noticed that once in a while, the phone shuts off. I've have all the "timeout" settings turned off, so it's not that.

This troubles me because I overslept today because my alarm didn't go off (Yes! I use my phone for an alarm clock).

Anybody have this issue? Did you do anything to fix it?

Hello. I wear two hearing aids and I have an LGCG300 that works pretty good but sometimes I get a little buzzing. Can any of you tell me what is the best hearing aid compatible phone you have? Thank you so much, PL Massey

The music player

I'm having a little problem with the music player in my V3xx. When I have the stereo headset plugged in and either in my pocket or in a holster the music player will start and then begin to crackle and then quit or quit and the voice command starts asking its questions. When I'm just holding the phone it seems to work fine. Any ideas?

How is the speakerphone turned on? The manual says to "hit the speaker button or go to options/turn speakerphone on" but my v3xx has neither of these

music player annoyance

Numerous times, almost double-digits now, the music player shuts off during playback. It shuts completely off and I'm back to the home screen.

Anybody else having this?

syncing calendar with Mozilla Lightning

I want to sync my v3xx calendar with the "lightning" calendar extension in Mozilla Thunderbird. I don't want to sync through a server, I just want to update my mobile calendar to reflect new appointments added to "lightning".

Can this be done? If so, how?

bad battery meter

I have gone through two Razr V3xx and I think three batteries. The problem is that when the AC adapter is not plugged into the phone the meter always reads full. When I plug in the AC adapter the battery meter reads the true (not full) battery life (4 or 2, for example in phone status or less than 3 on the main screen). When I disconnect it from the phone the battery reads full.

How can I correct this so that the phone does not always read full when it is not charging?

Texting issue with V3xx

Ive had it in gold and platinum and after about a week it starts sending my text messages as though they are picture messages. After about 3 days of doing that it just stops sending them period. Ive had my settings checked and gone through TSD but no one knows the problem so i just got a new SIM card and it fixed it for about a week - has anyone else heard of this problem? I had it happen to a friend who had a SYNC but it only happened once.
