Warning: back up your phonebook

My lg vi-125 just deleted all of the phone numbers saved in my contact list. It still lists all of the names of the people in my contact list, but their phone numbers are all gone.

This happened after I deleted a contact list entry. I think I remember reading on a different message board where someone else had this happen.

I have had this phone about 6 months and like it alot. This is the only bug I have encountered. Just make sure to back your contact info somehow. Everyone should do this shouldn't have your cell phone be the only place that important phone numbers are saved.

Exterior backlight contantly stays on.. NOT during charging

I often reach into my purse to check the time on my phone and find the exterior backlight has been on for who-knows how long, and my battery is almost dead. The only thing I can do to make it shut off is restart the phone, which only temporarily fixes the problem. I think it would stay on for the rest of my life if the battery didn't die first. And no, I don't have the backlight set for more than 8 seconds, so how is this happening? I sent it for repairs because of the hassle of charging my battery every night, and my battery was put in the loaner phone with no exterior display, and surprise surprise, my battery lasted 4-5 days at a time. Because my phone only does it at random times, my phone just HAD to behave while in the shop, and as soo...

In the info section on here it says "YES" under USB compatibility. When I bought the phone at a Sprint store today I specifically asked if the phone would support USB and they said no. Does anyone know if there is indeed a cable for this model phone out there somewhere?

Headset issue

I use a radioshack HS-1957 headset with my cell phone. It has worked well with Samsung A460 and A400 and my Sony cordless phone. I have had my LG VI-125 for about a week. When I get in the car, I usually plug the headset in to the cell phone. This way, if the phone rings, I just put on the headset and press talk.

I have figured out that the phone places calls by itself while the headset is plugged in. It usually happens when I enter or exit the car.

I bought a new headset from RadioShack (it has the Plantronics name on it) and now I notice that whenever I plug *this* set in to the phone, the phone redials the last number immediately.

Also, as I have read here before, the headset earpiece volume is very low on the LG VI-125. Tu...

LG 125

Get ready for another freebie from LG. It does have full duplex speakerphone but that is about the only good thing about this phone. I don't expect it to be too good of a phone. It will sell well since it is free but it will have issues!

LG VI-125 backlight

I just received my LG VI-125. One thing I've
noticed is that the LCD backlight stays on
continuously when the phone is connected to
the charger. This is the case regardless of
whether the flip opened or closed. An LG rep
told me that there's no setting that will
change this, my phone isn't defective, and
this is common in other LG models. This is my
first LG, but I've never seen this on any
other phone that I've owned. If anyone can
shed some light on whether or not the rep was
correct, I'd appreciate it.

Text messaging problem?

I called Sprint to see if this phone was available, and the salesman warned me that reading incoming text messages require logging on to Wireless Web. Has anybody had this problem?
