I found a working krave zn4 one day but it was reported lost so I cant use it. Is there some way to cancel the plan it was on without having the account info?

internal speaker

Has anyone had a problem hearing from the internal speaker when you call someone? I've had to wait for the person to pick up and switch to speaker phone just to hear them.

Bluetooth connectivity

Has anyone yet tried to connect their Krave to their computer via Bluetooth and do something useful with it? Maybe download pics, etc?

Speed Dial?

I have been reading reviews on the Krave and I am confused about something. Is there any type of "Speed Dial" function on this phone? Example: On my current Sony phone (AT&T) I can call home by simply hitting the number 1 and then "Call. My wife is 2 "call", my son is 3 "call" and so on. Does the Krave have anything similar? What's the fastest way to dial frequently called numbers? Thanks in advance.

Battery dies so fast

Help. I have ZN4, i like the phone, however it seems like it's always on the charger. i get maybe 24-36 hours on a charge, when I'm not using it.

I have Bluetooth off, is there something else running that i need to turn off? And how? my last phone had a task manager and i could turn everything off, i can't find that on this one.

I can take a completely charged phone and make a 10min call and I'll be down a full bar. by the end of the day it needs to be charged. it's driving me crazy.

Is this a verizon thing? my wife has a palm and it can't hold a charge to save it's life. I'm still in my 30 days so i'm think maybe i go back to t-mobile or AT&T. I can't stand them, but it's better then dealing with 2yr of a dead phone ...

Lack of Moto support and proper updates!

I've had this phone since October, and basically I feel the Krave is an unfinished product.

What's incredible to me is that we've had 2 minor updates since release and they have done NOTHING to fix the major gripes:

1. No speed dials
2. No customizable shortcuts from the external flip
3. No way to recalibrate the touch screen
4. Sometimes the touch screen loses responsiveness altogether for no reason, like while texting, or when you get a message and go to hit View Now.
5. Phone completely locks up on me when calling voicemail or any automated system using prompts.

I'm getting frustrated with this phone, and I don't think Motorola or Verizon are doing anything to improve this phone.

Pictures and Videos

OK i have the phone and i'm playing with it non-stop. however i'm trying to get some photos on it. I've taken my SD card out and moved them directly into the my_pix directly on the card.

However the file show up on the phone but won't preview them or show them when flip thru the photo album.

I've also connected the data cable, but it doesn't seem to do anything either.

Please Help...

Battery life question with Mobile Email

I was wondering what anybody's thoughts were regarding Mobile Email chewing into the battery life. I came home from vacation yetserday with the battery completely drained and put it on the home charger. After is said "Battery Completely Charged", I took it off the charger and turned the phone on. This was at about 11pm. I woke up this morning around 10am and the battery was down to 2 bars from 4. The only think that could have been going on was the relay from the Mobile Email. Anybody else experiencing anything like this?? FYI, I get perfect service as I can see the tower from my house here in Florida & it is also a phone I just purchased this past Tuesday so perhaps the battery needs to go through a few more charge cycles.

Finally upgraded!!

I have finally upgraded my Audiovox 9900...yes..that one. It should have won an award for best phone ever!! Anyways, went with the Krave since I thought was a great looking phone. One of the only faults I see is how the qwerty keyboard doesn't seem user friendly since the flip gets in the way of your left hand. Anybody find a fix for this such as using it with the flip cover? Also, I am interested in the mobile email since it will in a way let me know what an email has arrived, sort of like a fake BB if I'm not mistaken. I understand its $5/mo & then $1.99 MB. On average, how many emails would fit into 1MB? Looking over my options, the only other thing to do would be the VPAK for $15 and the $5 mobile email feature for unlimited. Pl...

Why no recent activity about this phone?

The title pretty much asks my question but really, why is there not more chatter about this phone? Is it because no one likes it and doesnt own it, or is it so awesome and everyone understands everything about it? (which i know is not the case).

Long story short, I love flip phones, and i love full key boards, so is this the phone for me or should i hold on to Alias? I pretty much read all of the reviews, and all the treads here so any more info on the phone or why this board is dead would be greatly appreciated.

Visual voicemail - record voice message for reply/forward

Has anyone else had problems with trying to record a reply to a voice message? The recorder doesn't seem to work at all, even with Verizon numbers. I've tried taking the battery in/out, but it still acts up and stops working after awhile.

Answering .....

Sorry n advance for the dumb question....
When answering the phone without the use of bluetooth/headset etc, do you flip open the phone to answer it? Is the clear part of the phone just for protection or does it actually function?
If so does it also hangup once you close it as in regular flip/clamshell phones???

Thanks!!! Confused Smile

Music and Pictures as Contact Entries?

I'm considering new phones and one of the things I like best about my current phone is that I can make my own mp3 ringtones on my computer and condense pictures to an acceptable size, save them on my TransFlash card for my phone, then save them to my phone to be used as Individual Contact Pictures and Individual Contact Ringtones. (I have to text the music files to myself then save them from the Sent message currently) Can I get the same result from this phone? Either by the same method or a different/easier way?

Many thanks for the responses!

opinions needed

Hello all,
I currently have a blackberry 8130 and my company has decided to cut cost and no longer reimburse the cost of my bberry data plan. In an attempt to reduce my personal expense I have decided to do away with the device all together. I have had an Iphone and really liked the device....but not the network (sorry at&t fans, just how it is) one of my roomies has the dare, and I don't really like it. Just wondering if this phone is worth the $350 price tag (nowhere near my new every two)

Battery life....

Is the battery life on this phone lame or what? I have had it exactly 24 hours and tonight I will have to recharge it for a second time. I have only made about 50-60 minutes of calls and very little browser use. Surprised
