LG Rumor: can't program number in phone.

I work at a used phone reseller, and for Sprint and Verizon phones, we have our own accounts to activate and verify that they are clear to activate for our customers. I have activated an LG Rumor and, for some reason, I can't program our number in. I tried putting in the ##??????# and it doesn't do anything except ask me if I want to dial or save the number. Does anyone know how to actually get the number programmed in? I appreciate any help.

LG Scoop

Ok this might be a dah question but I wanted to know if I need to buy a miniSD card for my new LG Scoop or can I put/download songs from my computer onto the phone without getting a card? Oh I also wanted to know how many songs will the phone hold?

Without a USB cable to transfer music directly onto your phone, you'll need to buy a card (unless you download them from a third-party provider, like downloading ringtones).
The amount of music that your phone can hold depends on the size of t...
nope you dont need a card but it hardly holds a lot without one
i got about 80 tones on mine but it depends on how many pictures, videos, size of songs, etc

Custom Ringtones??????

I can send MP3 files to my phone via bluetooth or usb cable, they work fine... I can send a couple without adding my MicroSD chip also. Well how do I set them as a ringtone, do they need to be in a special format? Anyone know, I have goldwave so I can convert them anyway I like. Thanks for the help.
you can't use the mp3s from my audios as ring tones but you can get them off of you computer to your phone via a usb cable and bit pim, use this web site

i cant get them to work when i get them thru bluetooth but if you get em in a text they will be in your audios. then you gotta go to the shuffle list in the multimedia menu and check the one(s) you want as ringtones

Recently Sent Messages menu

Ok just got this phone and am wondering if there is any way other than to just send a bunch of messages to clear out a number from the recently sent messages menu after I sent a text message out. I can delete the message but when I go to send a new message it has a menu of the numbers/contacts that i sent my last messages to. Can a certain number be removed from this list or is there a way to disable this feature entirely? Thanks in advance for your help.

Okay, I'm not a techno wizard or anything and I just got this phone as a christmas gift so I'm still learning how to use it now, so what exactly is Firmware, what does it do and do I need to update it? My phone gives me this option, but I was just wondering what that means. Can anyone help? 😕

My brad-new LG Rumor 260 phone doesn't work. Everytime I wanna go on the internet, or even my account, it writes me this : '' Sorry, we are unable to provision your handset at this moment. Try again later or call de customer care for assistance.'' It sucks...really! 😡
I called the customer care ( Something like that...Sorry for my english by the way... I speak french 😉 but I didn't find any forum in french to explain my problem so... )
Ok Like I said, I called the customer care today, but it has changed absolutely nothing.
I have bought this phone one week ago, and all I can do it's texting! ( Boring after a week )
So...have you already had this problem before ?

I really need help...

My rumor beeps about every 2 minutes. Already deleted all text messages. Have plenty of memory.

Any ideas out there?

I have a customer that is having the same issue. He is on Sprint Network. Did you ever get your issue resolved?

Countdown Timer?

Hi everybody! Can anyone verify for me whether or not the LG Rumor has a countdown timer? You know, where you can put in a date, like your birthday, and it will keep track of how many days remain. Some places say it does, some say it doesn't.

Please help me save ring tones

Every time I try to use bluetooth, it will not let me save it to my audio. I can hear it from the bluetooth, but that is it. What am I don't wrong? I called the service department and they told me the phone will not let me use ring tones, I'm sure that is a bunch of bull. So I guess my question is how do I save music/ring tones to my audio to use as ring tones? Thank you!!
the alltel people made it so on this phone you cannot use your audios for ringtones but i did find a way to put free ring tones on to my phone via usb cable. i saved the ring tones to my computer then did this...

My old phone would vibrate until I read the text message. But on the Rumor it seems to vibrate once and that is it is there a setting I don't see?
