Setting up my email

Can someone help me set up my email so it comes to my phone? Is this included in the $15 data plan?
the only way you can do it is through Mobile Email. It will just send you a text alert that you have new emails and then you have to log in each time to check them. You cannot see attachments with this device tho!
Go to menu, hit mobile email, hit a...

Text Pop-up Notification

I understand that by default when receiving a text message, the initial pop-up on the LG Xenon reads "1 new message".

I've heard there is a way you can change it to say "New message from (name)" instead. Is this true?

Thank you so much!
I cant find anything. Any luck finding something?
I don't have an SDK for any lg phones though. Maybe you need it to mess with the OS.

Picture Message Resolution

I can receive pictures and send them, but when receiving them the resolution shrinks terribly.
Sending them, the resolution is fine. Through bluetooth, pictures I receive keep their file size and res. But through messages, it always shrinks to around 160x100 or so. I've tested this with my friends phones and pictures. I've sent a picture I took with my phone to my email and sent it back, only to receive a shrunken version. My email got the same picture on my phone. Does everyone receive picture messages this small? Is there any way for me to fix this?

Anyone else's keyboard stopped working?

My wife and I both upgraded our phones (I had a Nokia E62 and she had a Motorola KRZR) to the Xenon. After 2 or 3 days, my wife's keyboard stopped working. She could slide it out, but the screen didn't change to landscape mode and the keys didn't work. The very next day, mine did the same thing.

We took them both back and are now using our old phones. Has anyone here had the same problem with the keyboards not working? I'm waiting for AT&T to get the Nokia E71x in and I'll upgrade to it. My wife liked the Xenon as did I, but we need reliable phones. Did we just get 2 unusually bad phones or are these not really reliable?

No, but I feel like this is going to be a massive problem with AT&T.

I had a small feeling in the back of my mind that this phone isn't for me and my wife. Thanks for the heads up. Returning it asap! I'll wait for the kinks to get removed.
Thank you. We just bought the Xenon for our daughter on Saturday. (She loves it, unfortunately.) Tonight her keyboard stopped working. I thought she may have locked it somehow. Thanks for saving me hours of searching for an answer.
I had to send mine back after having it for 10 days because of the keyboard had stopped working. I had it replaced with the Eternity and couldn't be happier even though I would have been happy with the Xenon if it hadn't malfunctioned and if I felt l...

Movies Letterboxed

Is there anyway I can get my movies to play using the entire screen instead of inside a smaller letterbox (landscape mode)?
Sorry, I meant to say Windowboxed.

Text Alerts

Does anyone know if you can set text alerts on the LG Xenon?

As in music for the text alerts. I have the LG VU now and I hate the fact that you can't do that with it and I want a phone that I can!

Thanks 😁
yes the xenon will, thats one reason I went from Vu to xenon too.

Transferring mp3 files from pc to phone

I just got my Xenon. I am trying to transfer some mp3 formatted ringtones to my phone with a data cable. i get a msg that says insert memory card for connecting? Do i have to have a memory card to transfer the stuff?
dont you want more space anyway and besides they are super cheap.

so anyway to answer the question. If you go to settings>more>connection>usb connection> which connection do you have chosen? Music sync, mass storage or data service. I don't know ...

Does the data cable also charge?

I've seen the data cable, particularly a Belkin model available from daydeal, but I can't find any info to help determine if the data cable also charges via USB?

Does anyone have the data cable and if so, does the phone charge while connected to the data cable?
Yes the data cable also charges the phone.
