Alert notifications

Anyone know if the LG Ally can be set to multiple alerts? Custom ring and vibrate work but only initial alert happens. I can find nothing in the settings that activates recurrent alerts? I checked the manual to no avail. Am I missing something?
Thanks, Chuck

Froyo?

Anybody think the Ally will get the Android 2.2 FroYo update sooner rather than later (if at all?)

setting voicemail password

Does anybody know how I can preset my vm password to enter automatically whenever I dial my vm?

With other phones, I would simply go into my vm setting and after my mobile number, enter a "pause" followed by my 4-digit pw. Any ideas?

Can you use this phone as a modem?

I wanted to know if you can connect this phone to your home computer and use it as a modem if you have the right app? A friend of mine has the Droid and she has an app called Tether Lite that allows her to plug her phone into her computer and run the internet on her home computer. She doesnt have to pay for cable internet anymore, just the service on her phone. Can the Ally do this?

wallpaper resetting issues

Hey all, just got this phone for my fiance. it's working great, but the wallpaper keeps resetting every few days. It seems to be random, not tied to any specific application usage. I'm not seeing a setting anywhere to make the wallpaper permanent. Has anyone else had a similar issue?

Wait for ALLY or buy the DROID?

Anyone care to answer? The droid is buy one get one right now so if it is a better choice, I'd rather do that. HOWEVER, I like the keyboard on this ALLY better than on the droid.

Ally2 Coming in July

I was in a VZW store yesterday, Salesman said the Ally2 and the next Moto Droid are coming out in July.

Played with the current models extensively. Though the Ally was nice, it paled speed wise in comparison to the current Droid and the Incredible. I figured there has to be a reason Verizon all of a sudden dropped the Ally's price to $49.95 (with 2 year contract) as soon as it hit the stores. The best part of the LG Ally is clearly the keyboard.

And from what I've seen of the new Droid X on engaget.com, the original Moto Droid will be history.

Startup sound?

All my LG phones of the past (8300, enV, Voyager) offered the option to turn off sounds during startup, but I haven't figured out how to do this with the Ally, any suggestions?

Even when I turn all sounds off on the phone, then power down, then turn it back on, it still plays the annoying LG chime. There has to be a way to turn this off! grrrrr...

Do I need an App for Voice Dialing with BlueTooth?

I just received my Ally yesterday and it's a definite upgrade in many ways from my Motorola Q. 2 things I loved about the Q that I'm not sure work with the Ally.

1) When I had appointment on my calendar with the Q it automatically went to "Meeting" mode so I never had to turn off my phone or adjust the ringtones

2) I could just push the "Call" button on my Bluetooth headset then I would be asked what I wanted to do. I would just say "Call" and the person's name and it would call. This is WAY important to me, especially with all the new laws. I can use my bluetooth headset (Motorola H390) to talk on when I dial on the phone, but that won't help me when driving. Is there a ways to use the voice dialing without having to touch th...

Notepad in Ally?

I'm new to smartphones, so bear with me...
What is the suggested application that would replace the Notepads in Multimedia phones?
This phone has so many great apps, but I'm looking for a simple way to keep track of notes.

LG Ally or HTC Incredible?

I've been waiting for the Incredible to go down in price, but my patience is wearing thin. I don't really care about the QWERTY keyboard, or the camera. What do you think?

Ally in stores--anyone have theirs with a review?

I went to the Verizon store today and saw the Ally. It seems like a pretty nice device, although I am still leaning towards the DROID.

I am looking forward to those of you who purchased the ALLY and care to review it for us here.

Why no Camera upgrade, LG?

I have the Dare and still love it *However* the one department it's always lacked in is its camera- specifically, very poor zoom and very poor flash technology. 3.2 megapixel wasn't bad until now with the Droid at 5 and Incredible coming out at 8! So why didn't LG come up to speed with its Android competitors? The other feature I wanted to really wanted to see get better is the audio portion of video-taking. The Dare's useless at concerts.

Now I dig this...

...a low to mid-tier Android handset. Very nice.

Not everyone needs a Droid Incredible.
