LG Glimmer / UX-830 / Vantage / Spyder
Earlier today, the LG Spyder 830 cell phone was recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which said it presented a hazard to the public because it doesn t hold a connection and has poor voice quality during 911 emergency calls. The recall stems from a report of a trapped motorist who tried reaching 911 from a disabled car but whose call was dropped because the network couldn t establish a signal. That person, thankfully, turned out to be uninjured. The commission has or...
(that's the only portion I can get to from behind the corporate firewall here...)
I was just curious on when/if anyone knows generally when the price on phones changes. I know this phone has only been out since May or so and the price has dropped but didn't know if someone knew a price time table of sorts.
Let me know please.

Observations and Questions, Glimmer
hey all. i sell cell phones for 3 carriers and i have been so excited about the competition that has popped up for the iphone generation. the glimmer, i had incredibly high hopes for and even higher when they addressed the ascending ringer issue 'quickly' (couldve been much faster).
i'll start off by saying no place for the stylist but looping the string through a little hole? not nice.
the keypad sucks. its just so cheap feeling. it's razorish. blah is all i can really say. texting sucks on it, but i'm getting use to texting on the touch screen. so if you're a mad texter, i wouldnt convince you to get a glimmer. at all. =(
the slide option is definitely a cool concept and in the dark when it slides with the sound effect... o...
Voice dial and speaker phone - I guess I'm clueless

I've managed to set a voice dial for my home number but for the life of me I can't figure how to get it to dial when I say the word.
Also how to you activate/deactivate speaker phone.
I'm only an IT Consultant. I guess I'm not technical enough.
With my Samsung u520 (from Alltel), both AIM and Yahoo chat client software came already installed on the phone.
LG Glimmer Ringing Issue Fix
I am a regional manager for alltel, and yes we go on Phonescoop too
Just letting everyone know that while we will not be able to provide a fix for the ringer increasing slowingly, we are able to do something else for you:
Your phone rings 5 times when someone calls you, by calling into Alltel we can make your phone ring 6 times, allowing you an extra ring to get to your phone. If 6 still is not enough, we can do 7 but i will use your airtime. The ringing process cannot last over 30 seconds, and 7 rings goes over that limit, therefore you will be using your airtime for everything over the 30 seconds, and THIS IS FOR EVERY CALL. I hope this helps you, as we try to provide the best for our customers.
As of now, We c...

Love the glimmer! gotta get used to the touch screen though!
How does the camera work??
Glimmer price drop
With this price drop, I am sorely tempted to trot on down to the local Alltel store and upgrade from my Samsung u520 to the LG Glimmer
