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.
My complaints about the 8940
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.
New technology Knowledge
battery life is good
I'm pretty happy with that...how is everybody else's usage?
syncing outlook contacts?
where do u buy the mini sd cards?
phone file directory -please help
Price jump from Verizon
Either way, I'm glad I got mine on Feb. 1 when it was cheaper!!
I may get this phone I need some help
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,
