QOS (Quality of Service) has been suffering lately


I have noticed that in the SE Wisconsin area (Milwaukee, WI) the service offered by Verizon has dropped in the past month or two. There are more dropped calls, more dropouts. Has anybody else experienced this problem? Verizon was really quite good about a year ago, but one year later it is just not the same. My fiancee and future in laws both have the VX8100 phone and have noticed the same thing.

Converting MID/MIDI files for VX8100 ringtones

Hi, what is the easiest way to take mid files already stored on the VX8100 phone and make them ringtones?

I see one way, which is to use SynthFont, load as a midi, then render as MP3. Then use BITPIM to transfer it back to the phone.

I'm surprised that LG did not put a converter on the phone or even accept both formats for ringtones.

Bitpim unexpected exception has occurred

Shocked This unexpected exception has occurred message just started to pop up when I try to convert MP3s to ringtones.
This just started to happen. I used to download mp3s and then convert them just fine. I do notice that any of the old mp3s I have on my hard drive will convert. If I download a new mp3 and try to convert I will get that " unexpected exception " annoying thing.
Does anyone have a clue what went wrong? I updated my Bitpim to the latest version. Or is it my Limewire that changed something with the downloaded mp3?

Storing maps/pdf/documents to VX8100


Is there any way to get things like maps onto the VX8100 phone? I am talking about yahoo or mapquest maps. I would like to put these on for free. Also, is there any way to install apps on the phone which do not cost any money. I know VZW has some GetApps services which are subscription based. I think this is garbage. There is not even a single game included on the phone. My old Sanyo RL4920 phone from years ago had Crab-Catch.

Blank/White LCD

I have worked with cell phone accessories for almost a year now. I have installed many faceplates and other parts. Someone that worked with me called me and told me a phone (lg vx8100) got messed up in the process of putting it on. I came to look and the external screen is white but it had a very small black dot. I couldn't fix it. Figured air got to the lcd like a crack had been made. Now, the phone external lcd is still white but the dark spot is gone. Everything works fine. Even the internal lcd is ok. Sound fine. Jus outside lcd. Can someone tell me where I can buy one or what I need to do to make it work.

just a helpful hint to those of you who are accessorising their phones. DO NOT try to replace the antenna it is stationary and not a screw on ,
if you try to remove it you will break it ruining the phone. i learned this the hard way and am sharing it with you so you dont have to. Smile

Battery Life

I'm not even getting an 'actual' hour of talk time. Phone was swapped out, brand new, less that 6 mos ago. Standby time about 1 1/2 days. If I turn off the EVDO,
can it be re-enabled?
Found the following thread. Is this correct?
