LG VX-8700-II

Just saw the LG rep at my Verizon store. The 8700-II will be the upgrade. Touch music controls on front display which will be horizontal position, not vertical. 4MP camera and greatly increased memory, not sure how much. Phone will be made of some sort of composite plastic, super strong and will not get hot. Speaker phone able to be activated whether on call or not. Due out sometime in October.

T9 Learn New Words??

My current phone will not learn new words in T9! I hate it! Does the 8700 learn new words when you switch to WORD then back to T9? Thanks!

Voice training issue

Hello all,

If you are finding it impossible to train your phone for digit recognition, you are not alone. The Verizon tech I spoke with tried a number of phones in her office and all refused to be trained for voice recognition of digits. She indicated there might be a software upgrade as a fix and suggested that I take the phone back to the store to have the programming flashed. I will let you know if that makes a difference.

Regards,

RSM

Loose Charger

Has anyone else had a problem the the charger not staying in the phone? Mine is loose and any bump makes it either fall out or dislodge. I didn't know if it was just mine or if all of them were like this. I like it better when the charger "clicks" into the phone and stays!!

VISTA ON LAPTOP

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I AM NOT A HIGH TECH PERSON, BUT WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO SYNC MY CALENDAR (OUTLOOK) FROM MY LAPTOP WITH VISTA TO MY LG VX8700 CELLPHONE.

I HAVE A DATA CABLE AND HAVE DOWNLOADED FROM BITPIM, BUT THE PHONE IS NOT BEING DETECTED BY BITPIM.

I ALSO DOWNLOADED THE DRIVERS FROM VERIZON FOR THE MUSIC ESSENTIALS KIT. DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO HAVE BITPIM RECOGNIZE THESE DRIVERS?

ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO DO?

LG VX-8700 durability

I was really impressed with the features of this phone. The exception is the speaker and speaker phone, the quality is poor. That said I bought the phone for features and looks, but the camera was most important and I thought it performed extremely well. The camera has since been rendered useless as it now has fine scratches on the lens which give the pictures a foggy appearance. It seems the front screen display and the camera lens are both plastic which I believe should have been harden glass for phone in this price range. I purchased a case however the camera lens was still exposed. I had a kyocera swivel phone and never had any scratches on the display or the camera lens and I didn't have it a case for the two years I owned it.

Than...

Phone gets hot?

I just got this phone a week ago and it seems great. My old question is about how hot the back gets. If i talk for more than 10 minutes it seems to get hotter than my last LG. Is this because it is metal, or a malfunction? Thanks

MisroSD Card and BitPim

I have an LG8700 and I want to transfer my pictures from my phone to BitPim. Everything with the BitPim program seems to work fine, but after I transfer from my phone to my PC the images(sd)) folder under media in the BitPim program contains the files, but then all are 0.0kb and I preview is blank. Can anyone help me as to why? I have tried different resolutions, and still nothing.

Thanks,
