Couple of questions - 8940 owners please read

i own the cdm-8940. To others who have it:

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.

picture ID on front LCD

I contacted Audiovox customer service and asked them if they knew of a planned software update to allow the picture of the person calling to appear on the front LCD, not just the inside screen. This was their response:

"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."

Very disappointing.
Maybe if we can get enough people to complain about it, they'll hear the demand for it and get an update out.

My complaints about the 8940

After 4 days of use, I've found these issues (at least they are issues in my opinion). If anyone knows workarounds for these please tell.

Cannot configure duration of low setting of backlight (fixed at 5 seconds)

Vibrate then ring can only use loudest ring volume!

Vibrate and ring can only use loudest ring volume!

Vcast volume setting #2 too loud, setting #1 is the same as #0 (mute)

Vcast audio plays on outter speaker, not inner speaker (causing sound to go away from viewer)

Phone book doesn't have an 'Other' phone number element.

Camera quality is horrible.

Cannot zoom/pan on picture once taken, no way to tell if picture is any good.

mini-SD card is crippled.

battery life is good

I'd like other 8940 owners' opinions on the battery life of the 8940. My battery lasted 7 days, making about 30 mins of calls and a few txt msgs. I recharged it the night of the 7th day cause it was at one bar, but I have no doubt it could have gone another day b4 dying.
I'm pretty happy with is everybody else's usage?

8940 Ticking???

I bought the 8940 on Friday and I heard what it sounds like a watch ticking when talking on the phone, it happens 8/10 times. I took it back, the other phone has the same problem. The service rep couldn't heard it though. Sad Anyone else have this problem? I really like this phone but can't stand the ticking.

Price jump from Verizon

Anybody else notice that the price for the 8940 has gone up $20? The LG 8000 and Samsung 890 prices stayed the same. I wonder if the demand for the 8940 has gone down b/c of bad reviews, so Verizon is trying to make more money b/c of lack of sales. Or could it be on the supply side, that UTStarcom hasn't produced enough phones to keep up with demand?
Either way, I'm glad I got mine on Feb. 1 when it was cheaper!!

I may get this phone I need some help

Just trying to make up my mind, I was wondering how well is the mp3 player in this phone, IS STEREO; I just need the mini SD, could I plug an FM Transmitter for my car???
And also if I have a phone which is able of Vcast that necessarily means the internet in the phone is going to be faster than a non Vcast phone??
Thanks in advance,

Very Happy
