A problem with the Venus that might have been corrected

When I first purchased the Venus my phone had the same prob many of yours had. The vibrate mode being so weak. But I recently went on vacation in a noisy place and could not have the ringer on due to not being able to hear it. So i placed it on vibrate and it worked smoothly. Did not miss any of my calls. So long story short either it was just luck or Verizon did fix this issue with the Venus. Very Happy

Micro SD card fit

Two questions ,
Which way does the SD card go in the phone with the phone sitting on its back ?,,, Card label up or down ?

When the SD card is in the phone can you cover the card with the door ?

I got the card to go in the phone ( Label side down ) but the card sticks out enough that the door wont close over the card . Is this right ? And the phone won't recognize the memory. It says no card is inserted ... Mad

Thanks for your help ...

Compared to RIZR??

Anybody had a chance to compare these two new sliders yet? One reviewer commented on the lack of a ridge on the sliding portion, which makes the 8800 trickier to slide open.

What about display, reception and speakerphone comparisons? (IMO, my RIZR has as good as or better Verizon reception than my 8300, but the 8300 speakerphone was the best, period.) 8800 anyone?

Vibrate is Weak

When the my phone is in silent (vibrate) mode, the vibration is very weak. I barely feel it in my pocket or holster. Is anyone else having this problem or is it how it is? I had an LG 8100 before and it had a crazy strong vibrate function.

Slider vs. Flip Phone

I have always used a flip phone. I like the Venus, features, et al., but I'm not sure I will like the slider. Has anyone made this switch and found it to be comfortable?

Venus Replacement

I just got the new Venus last week and I think I might have blown out the speaker from adding my own ring-tones too loud(stupid I know). Can I just take the phone in and get a replacement or do I need to have a certain problem for them to do it? What can I tell them to get them to give me a new one for free? Thanks.
