Just for the record
thanks to everybody who has been posting in here, ive been reading all the threads for a while and they have been very helpful... i just joined because i had an idea and i didnt know if any1 was down for it:
It just so happens that everyweek or so people come in posting the same questions and then people post the same answers just directing people to differnt places...
so i was wondering if we can just put all the Frequently asked questions and answers right in the front... or like in responce to this, so that people do not have to post the same thing everytime... these could include
1.how to get pictures off your phone
2.how to load pictures and songs onto your phone
3.How to use the SD card...

Couple of questions - 8940 owners please read
1) How to make picture ID show up on the outside of the phone (sub LCD) when someone calls? It's pointless inside.
2) How to make the backgrounds of the sublcd customized?
Also, any instructions to send our own ringtones (midi or mp3) to this phone would be appreciated.

8940 vs. V710 HELP!!
picture ID on front LCD
"CDM-8940 is a very new phone, but we are not hearing anything that would indicate our engineering department intends to offer a software upgrade that would allow this.
To be perfectly honest, it would be unlikely that it will happen."
Maybe if we can get enough people to complain about it, they'll hear the demand for it and get an update out.

Vibrate then ring can only use loudest ring volume!
