Bought a mint used Dare. Activation denied on web site, c cust. service. They say can't activate on my Plan America Choice Family 700 minutes.Must go to the newer Nation Plan cause phone won't work on America Choice. I wanted to use my unused minutes for browsing, not pay as you go @ 1.99 per Is this true answer? They say no contract extention needed. Any way around this. Sorry for long post.
Did LG or Verizon kill the Dare? Mines been acting up, it just locks up and i have to sometimes pull the battery to restart it. I was going to call Verizon and get a new one since this is only 5 months old, but if they killed it off I might have to get something else. Any one know anything about the Dare and Verizon?
I've decided that my next phone will be the DARE...got a couple of questions if you don't mind helping me out...
I've read some about the proximity sensor having issues if it's covered in any way, even if using a clear skin or clear screen protector, has this been the case for the majority of users?
I've looked at Bodyguardz and Invisible Shield by Zagg...I'm leaning toward Bodyguardz, reviews have stated it's easier to apply than the I.S. and it lasts longer without yellowing or peeling/cracking off...anyone have any input about either of these?
Ive have no issues with the sensors. They just adjust the screen brightness automatically and the proximity one to shut off the light when talking on the phone and turn back on to add notes, ect while on a call.
As far as a screen protector, Ive h... (continues)
I have a Zagg Invisible Shield on my Dare (full-body and screen). I love the phone and the shield. The Zagg actually has a really small oval cutout where the sensors are so as long as you get it aligned correctly, there is no problem. The phone is ... (continues)
DareNeophyte---so, which one are you going to get??? 🤨 So far Zagg, Bodyguardz and Boxwave have been mentioned. I, too, have a Dare with a Verizon shield on it. I HATE it. There are smears and fingerprints on it, not to mention the little bubbles ... (continues)
hey I just got this phone today. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to do the following: 1 adjust text size need it as big as it get 2 how to change ring tones and oh yeah how to turn phone on/off I am now to touch screen Thanks atrinkler822
I don't mean to sound rude, but didn't your phone come with an istruction manual? The time it would take someone to type all of these instructions out for you here (and the time it would take you to read it) would be longer than if you just read the ... (continues)
🙂 Thought further about your situation and thought I would mention that the user guide, quick start guide and spec sheet are available as pdf's on the verizon site and/or the LG site. You can zoom these as much as needed so that you can read them ea... (continues)
I just got the iclone - LG Dare - so that I could stay with Verizon. Fortunately many of the features are very intuitive because the instructional user guide is not much more that a quick start guide. It addresses the most basic stuff in painful detail (over and over) and does not address full capabilities with any useful direction. It painfully begins each direction with 3 part instruction on unlocking the screen (touch the lock icon on the screen, duh!) and then proceeds with the how to, but only in the really basic stuff. And while it does give some "how to", it does not give the "why you would or would not want to" choose particular options. In other words, it really does not address functionality. It even misses the boat on some b... (continues)
🙂 Hi I was hoping someone could help me with this-when i was in a vzw store, they could not. I currently have a pink curve-so-can the dare copy and paste like you do with a bb? Also, is it really that difficult navigating on the web with the Dare? ie. how do you 'scroll' up on a page-is it by touching and'holding' the page as you move your finger up? the model in the store did not work properly!! tia for anyone that can help before i decide to upgrade my ph!
The Dare is a great phone, but you might be somewhat dissapointed with web browsing. This is the first phone I have ever had where I actually used the internet, so I don't really have anything to compare it too. It's been available on many of my pas... (continues)
Can i just pop in an sd card and listen to music or do i have to set up rhapsody and make a playlist to listen? I used to have a mogul with sprint and it had windows media player so i could just pop in an sd card and pick the song i wanted to play and it played. I put the sd card into the dare and i couldnt even seee the music on the card.. Please help. Thanks
🙄 I am a mac user; also (due to living in rural mountainous area)verizon is the only game in this little town. I have finally sorted through all verizon phones and have decided that the dare comes closest to meeting my needs and I have played with it and like the interface. The big unknown is mac compatibility. I have spoken to at least a half dozen people who work for verizon (all of whom assure me that they are 100% certain that their answers are correct) who completely contradict each other. The answers range from "it is in no way compatible" to "music, pics, contact list,notes, etc. can easily be shared with mac via micro sd card or bluetooth". Any feedback from those of you mac users with the Dare is appreciated. I'm still pr... (continues)
