Samsung SCH-A650 vs. Audiovox CDM-8600: which better?
Which phone is better able to pull in a weak signal? I live part of the year in a rural, fringe, analog area less than 1/8 mile from a no-service (for any company) zone. My primary concern when selecting a cell phone is it's ability to receive a signal. Voice quality is next. Bells and whistles are minor concerns to the above. I don't care how much a cell phone costs as long as it enable me to make and receive calls.

How to fix annoying Verizon blinker: CDM8600

For those who don't know what NAM is:
Number Assignment Module. The NAM is the electronic memory in the wireless phone that stores the telephone number and an electronic serial number.
Storing more than one voice tag for same person?
I have "Wife" listed as a contact. I have two numbers for her, one for her work and one for her cell. I want to have a different voice tag associated with each (i.e. flip the phone open and have the option to say "Wife - Home" or "Wife - Cell"). [By the way I saw people mentioned holding down the send key to activate VR, but you can change that to be activated by flipping open the phone, email me for more details].

Auto answer for CDM-8600
Can somebody who already has a CDM-8600 confirm as to how the auto-answer works. The feature must be on but i've read on the manuals that if the ringer is set to silent or vibrate, it's not going to work and i've seen also that for the auto answer to work, the phone must be open. No mention as to whether if you have a car kit plug in, the auto answer feature is on.
thinking I'll list all of the entries that start with 'SM' Well, it lists all the entries that have 'SM' within the name.
Who thought up of that?
PRL 50110 Bug - May want to wait before buying
As of PRL 50110, the front LCD flashes the word "Verizon" and the clock dissapears. "Verizon" will show for a few seconds, then pop off, then pop back on again. This is annoying if you rely on your front LCD to show you the time/date because you may have to sit and wait for the word "Verizon" to go away.
Hopefully this is something that will be correctable via software update.
little front LCD backlight answer and easy contact access
