potential driving mode software bug-does your do this?


Nov 3, 2004, 11:56 PM
I have discussed this issue via e-mails with "TheMrBillShow" (a quite knowledgeable member of this forum) and he suggested I post it here. I intend to e-mail LG customer service and see what they say. On to the issue:

If I just turn on driving mode and then turn it off, the phone reverts back to regular mode.
However, if I turn on driving mode and make or
receive calls with it, after I close the flip to end to call, and then turn off driving mode, the speakerphone stays on-so that when I make or receive calls subsequent to disengaging driving mode, the other party comes through the speakerphone until I turn it off the speakerphone by pressing up on the navigation pad.

This only happens when I make or receive calls in driving mode,...

Yes, my 6100 behaves exactly as you've described. I don't really care for it, as it makes for another step to deactivate speakerphone after deactivating DM. Confused Seems like a bug IMO, I can't see why LG would have intentionally designed it to function this way.

My 6100 has the same strange behavior...

Yet my wife's vx4500, which has exactly the same drive mode features, DOES NOT exhibit this behavior and when you exit the "Driving Mode", on the 4500, the speakerphone ALWAYS reverts to OFF...

It is definitely a software bug in the 6100...

This kind of stuff is really bazaar, considering that it seems to take Verizon "close to forever" to "test" a phone... and yet these problems seem to slip by...

The 4500 was the best driving mode phone there ever was. And now they have NOTHING LIKE IT.

If you disengage the phone into manner mode, even though the phone still says speaker on, it will not come through the speaker.
