VZW Ringtones

My son just bought s 5200, and we have a question about it. According to the description, the ringtones for it are polyphonic. But on the VZW site, the VZW Tones, which are realtones, is listed as available for it. My question is if he purchases a realtone, will the 5200 play it as real or poly?
Thanks for the info!

Sounds to ringtones

Can anyone tell me how to set a sound I recorded to be a ringtone??? I can't even set another ringtone as my ringtone??? My only ringtone I can use is the default

Can anyone tell me what the ringtones are like on this phone? I see there are only 15. Are any familiar songs? I had the Motorola v265 and it had 30-some ringtones but I didn't recognize a single song. My sister has LG 6100 and it has quite a few I recognize....but the LG 5200 is cheaper so I thought I'd find out what those ringtones are like.....

Thanks! Smile

phone features

Has anyone figured out anything new with this phone?

How do you turn on the speakerphone?!?! I just can't figure it out. Also, is it possible to record a sound, but save it to "My Ringtones" instead od "My Sounds"? That would be a BIG help! Thank you

LG 5200 Sounds

I sent a message to my phone with a midi attached. When I get the message, it allows me to save the sound. After that, I have no idea where it is saved to. Any ideas? Thanks

Does anyone know if there is a way that you can take off or change the verizon wireless banner that is on the front LCD of the 5200 phone when you open the phone?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew if the weight on the phonescoop site is the correct weight. It says 4. something and the VX6100 is only 3.88oz and that is supposed to be a bigger phone. Does anyone know?
Thanks in advance.

One Last Thing for My Review, has to do with signal

I forgot to mention that phone seems to have very good signal. I travel mostly in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and I have yet to have a problem with little or no signal. I actually get better service than my brother and sister do with on their 6100s, especially in the difficult spots.

The phone is on Verizon's site for $49.99 on a 2 yr contract.

Does anyone know who will be the carrier of this phone (VX 5200)? I've been looking at the VX 8100 as well (I am a Verizon wireless customer). Just curious if Verizon have this phone...

Thanks! Very Happy
