Re: LG...

in the Article: Verizon Holiday Phones forum

Pennyless10 stated that any half decent American would keep their money in the US by purchasing the iPhone and not the Voyager. I was defending the Voyager and every half decent American VW custeromer by telling pennyless in so many words, that their statement makes no sense because their saying that any half decent American VW (CDMA network) customers should purchase a GSM network phone (the iPhone) regardless of the fact that the iPhone is not supported by ...

Oh I'm sorry for not being clear. I only meant that Verizon's voice/data plans for the smartphones and blackberrys are sort of expensive when you don't have a business need for them (which I don't) and it's those prices that concern me. I gotta say though, even the voice/data bundles are kind pricy for people like me who hardly ever send texts, pics, or videos. I just want unlimited mobile access that doesn't use my peak ...

Sweetie, the LG Voyager has been offered to a carrier who's network can't even support the iPhone so I'm pretty sure a lot of half decent Americans will be purchasing the Voyager when it comes out.

The Voyager's NOT an iPhone Imitation
Oct 3, 2007, 6:39 PM
in the Article: Verizon Wireless Unveils Holiday Lineup forum

The Voyager is a unique phone. Yes it's touch screen feature reminds you of the iPhone but it's Qwerty keyboard is evidence in itself that the phone is no knockoff of apple's device. I think it is going to do extremely well. It has that touchscreen, it can be used as a multimedia center, and it's attractive. I wouldn't be surprised if people drop their current contracts and come over to Verizon just for this ...

Actually, per one of VW's phone magazines, Mobile Email does have the capability to alert you when you receive an email message but you have to set it up to do so. You might want to ask rob21i how to...

OMGoodness, Verizon is teasing us right now, even with the music! I hope the phone will come in a red. The red one already out is pretty hot. It's my NE2 too!

Sounds like your music was converted to an acceptable file type for the phone. All my music is converted to wma files prior to synchronization. I noticed when my music was in MP3 format, I could not view them on the phone. Therefore I could not play them. WIH

Re: Storing pics to transflash card
Sep 27, 2006, 11:03 PM
in the Samsung SCH-A950 forum

There's a possibility that your memory card may not be pushed all the way in your phone and the files you do see may be on your phone and not the card. Remove your transflash from the phone. Make sure that the the side with the writing is faced down as you reinsert the card. Use your fingernail to push the card in and slightly downward till you hear a click. Check for your files. ...

I find the contact, select that I want to set the contact image, select an image and I get the error "Picture ID supports below 320 by 240" I think the fact that this camera is so badly designed that it can't even use its own photos for contact photos shows why people ...

Sep 27, 2006, 10:41 PM

How did you transfer the music? Did you use the VCAST music kit because you can not transfer music directly from your computer to your transflash, I've tried. You have to use the music kit.

rickdias said: I am thinking about getting one, but want to check a couple of assumptions first. Any answers from a current owner would be greatly appreciated. 1) Can I set an option to cause all new pictures + video to be stored on the transflash card instead of internal memory? 2) Can I put the transflash card into my PC and easily copy images + video to my hard drive? Assuming I have an TF->SD card adapter and SD ...

Re: Which Bluetooth Headset?

in the Samsung SCH-A950 forum

I've had the H500. I thought the sound quality and volume was ok. However, I took back the H500 after speaking with a Motorola rep who told me that that particular headset drains the batteries of CDMA network phones quicker than other bluetooth headsets. I can honestly say, now that I have another bt headset, I can see the rep was right. Currently I have the Moto H700 but I'm about to take that back ...

wtwieder said: I am not sure which firmware version you have, but the new firmware does NOT allow you to put mp3 music files on your phone and play them. If you have the newest firmware you can only put wma music files on your phone. However, it is possible to install mp3 ringtones on the new phones in the same manner as with the older a950's. According to the manual that came with my phone, it states that ...

Don't worry about the new software upgrade for this phone. It's no threat to anyone. I just bought the ugraded version of the 950 four days ago and the new version allows you to download your own mp3s to the phone and buy the new VCAST music. It's great. I haven't used the VCAST music service yet, but I like having the capability on my phone because sometimes I just want to download one song ...

Jan 2, 2006, 7:22 PM
in the Samsung SCH-A970 forum

That upside down imaging, is a defect. I had two 970s and both did that at some point. Your image should always be right side up, no matter which way the display is turned. Something isn't computing properly within your phone. If you are within the 15 day trial, you can swap the phone for another new one. If you have exceeded your 15 days, they'll still swap it out but you'll get a ...

in the Samsung SCH-A970 forum

Ok, I just upgraded to the poorly assembled RAZR V3c and just like the 970, I'm going to return it for a full refund. Here's the things though, I spoke to a VW technician and she told me to wait at least 4-5 months after a phone's release before buying it. She said by then, the stores should have received their second batch of the phone and the kinks discovered the first time should be worked out. ...

When you are looking for a new phone you look at the features it has and make a decision. You don't look at the features and start complaining about what it doesn't have.

in the Motorola RAZR V3c forum

Sounds to me like the two of you lucked up with this phone. Like a VW technician told me, each unit is different. But for those of us with legitimate complaints, we seem to have purchased bad phones and that really sucks! It's bad business to sell customers phones that were, for the most part, poorly assembled. I declare Motorola did a rush job on mine. WIH

Mislead? If you are a VW customer, you definitely were not mislead. Verizon advertised just what the phone could do or at least what they would allow it to do. In this forum, there are many people comparing the V3c to the V3. The V3c is a different VERSION of the RAZR. Each phone has something the other doesn't. If you bought Verizon's V3c, you knew exactly what to expect. However, there were many customers looking to get more ...

We don't know what phones are coming out in '06. We rely on this site to keep us informed of that information. Verizon doesn't even tell their reps what's being released until they are just about to put it on the market. The purpose of that is to minimize leaks. As far as the Blade being activated on Verizon's network, you are correct, it can not be. The blade was made specificially for a GSM network ...

Always keep in mind that you can have a great phone that s capable of picking up signal well but if your particular area doesn't have many cell towers around, you may not get great reception. So on that note, is there anyone in MD, close to VA, that owns the RAZR and hasn't had reception issues? WIH

I'm curious, what is more important to you, features on a cell phone or the service received on the cell phone? Personnally, I have a passion for cell phones, but when it comes down to it, the service is more important to me. So when I get a cell phone at a decent price, the extra stuff are just perks. How do you feel? WIH

However, I don't see the big deal with having the Verizon interface. It just takes some getting used to. Everything takes time to get use to when it's new. Just open yourselves up to it, you'll find ...
