U[grading from Motorola E815

I've had the E815 for 2+ years and am ready for my NE2. This is the best phone I've had in terms of reception and reliability - my area gets good reception, but inside my house is awful - except with E815. Battery has been sluggish - not really holding a charge anymore. Am considering the LG 8350 and Moto W385. I don't care much about bells and whistles (own a digital camera, PDA, laptop). I need reliability in terms of reception, no dropped calls and battery life. (Son has LG 8300 and claims to get good reception in house). Any suggestions?

make incoming caller name font larger?

This is the Verizon version. The incoming number is displayed in a large font on the outside screen, but the caller's name is in very tiny text that's smaller than fine newsprint. I need reading glasses to read it, but I often doesn't have them handy. All of my previous phones have displayed the caller name in nice big letters; I've never needed glasses to use any phone. Why is it so small? There's plenty of empty screen room.

Is there any way to increase the font size? If not, I'll probably have to return an otherwise pretty good phone. I want to know who's calling before I answer the phone.

External screen

Can you view texts then they come in on the external screen of the 8350 like you could on the 8100??

to upgrade or not to upgrade....

i currently have the lg vx8600 (flip chocolate i guess you could call it). i originally had a 8100 and *loved* it. when the 8300 came out i thought about upgrading to that, but the fact that it did not have that flashy light that blinked or you couldnt read messages on the front really bugged me...

now the 8350 is out, and the initial appearance does not look so hot, but i am really attracted to how it does not have any touch sensor buttons and how you can read text messages on the front.

the one thing i worry about is the thinness factor. i have gotten use to a thin phone with my 8600 and i really am dubious about getting the 8350. on top of that, i like to get the extended batteries cuz i hate charging my phone often....

so i as...

CNET Gave it a Great Review

Wow... CNET usually doesn't seem to like Verizon phones, but they liked the 8350:

Never thought I'd see an 'Excellent' from them for anything Verizon. Shocked

color question

anyone else see a purple tint to this thing? Seems like a nice phone but I was not digging the color or the design on the flip, kinda of a pain to open with one hand.

8350 Free at Circuit City

Allegedly, at least in some parts of the country, the 8350 is *free* at Circuit City, with a 2-yr contract and $50 mail-in rebate.

Definitely a better price than I've seen anywhere else.

LG vx8350 and Premium Plans

Can the new 8350 be used with the Premium Plans that Verizon offers? (Sorry for posting in both the main and this forum; probably should have just posted here).

Thanks!

USB for LG VX-8350

Does the LG VX-8350 use the same USB cable and drivers as the VX-8300?
I use my VX-8300 as a cellular modem for Verizon National Access and do not see a "Mobile Office Kit" for the VX-8350.
This kit includes the USB cable and drivers.

Speech Output on the LG 8350

Hi Everyone,

I'm a visually impaired user of the LG VX8300 and I use the speech output, I was just wondering, I'm sure this phone also has it, but do you know if it reads the menus "deeper" by that I mean that it will only read to the 3rd one down and then quit, either requiring memorzation of the use of a magnifier. Also, will this phone read the text messages to you? I can type them on my current unit, but then have to use a magnifier to read text messages. I'm not sure if you all can answer these questions or not, but would appreciate some insights.

I also have my 8300 set to announce who's calling me, I like that feature as well as the distinctive ring tones I can assing. I'm going to the Verizon store tomorrow to get my 8300...

I don't know about you but...

when the first LG-vx8300 came out, I was not impressed in the least bit because it was the 8100 wanna be. I thought it was not that great looking too.
Now that I look back, I feel that the 8300 is ONE of the best built phone.
Who knows, maybe I might like this more than the 8300 someday.
