Anyone know if the LG Ally can be set to multiple alerts? Custom ring and vibrate work but only initial alert happens. I can find nothing in the settings that activates recurrent alerts? I checked the manual to no avail. Am I missing something? Thanks, Chuck
I'm sure it will, but the real question at the moment is when the VZ stores will get the damn phone in the first place! No one in the stores or customer service knows anything except that you pre-order it on-line.
😕 how do i do this?! it never gives me the option. if i touch and hold the screen it will pop up for about 1 millisecond and its gone. am i the only one with this problem? i need to figure this out before my 30 days are up and i can't return the phone for a new one. picture saving is a necessity for me hah.
i hope someone can help me out here. thanks in advance!
I've found that the only way to save a pic sent within a text is to long press the picture while it's in it's thumbnail format within the threaded text. (Rather than tapping the pic first and then trying to save) It should then give you a prompt to s... (continues)
Hey everyone, I was just wondering how do I save ringtones to my phone that I have e-mailed to my phone?? Is it pssible?? All my other VZW phones I have had have the option to 'save as ringtone' option. Can I do this on the Ally??
I wanted to know if you can connect this phone to your home computer and use it as a modem if you have the right app? A friend of mine has the Droid and she has an app called Tether Lite that allows her to plug her phone into her computer and run the internet on her home computer. She doesnt have to pay for cable internet anymore, just the service on her phone. Can the Ally do this?
Hey all, just got this phone for my fiance. it's working great, but the wallpaper keeps resetting every few days. It seems to be random, not tied to any specific application usage. I'm not seeing a setting anywhere to make the wallpaper permanent. Has anyone else had a similar issue?
Personally, I am not a Motorola fan, but a huge LG fan and I have already pre-ordered the Ally. I feel like it was worth the wait, and I have been waiting a long time! You only have to wait for the Ally until Thursday, or pre-order now.
THE VERDICT!? Ally or DROID!? I see alot of glowing reviews for the ALLY and some people are comparing it to the droid saying it's better...for those of you who do have it here on phonescoop...what are your thoughts? For those of you who might have... (continues)
I was in a VZW store yesterday, Salesman said the Ally2 and the next Moto Droid are coming out in July.
Played with the current models extensively. Though the Ally was nice, it paled speed wise in comparison to the current Droid and the Incredible. I figured there has to be a reason Verizon all of a sudden dropped the Ally's price to $49.95 (with 2 year contract) as soon as it hit the stores. The best part of the LG Ally is clearly the keyboard.
And from what I've seen of the new Droid X on engaget.com, the original Moto Droid will be history.
I don't think the Ally is getting shelved just yet. It just replaced the Eris as our low end Droid device. There might be another LG Android coming out but not as a replacement. I will say if you are looking for a cheaper low end device the Ally can't... (continues)
Do I need an App for Voice Dialing with BlueTooth?
I just received my Ally yesterday and it's a definite upgrade in many ways from my Motorola Q. 2 things I loved about the Q that I'm not sure work with the Ally.
1) When I had appointment on my calendar with the Q it automatically went to "Meeting" mode so I never had to turn off my phone or adjust the ringtones
2) I could just push the "Call" button on my Bluetooth headset then I would be asked what I wanted to do. I would just say "Call" and the person's name and it would call. This is WAY important to me, especially with all the new laws. I can use my bluetooth headset (Motorola H390) to talk on when I dial on the phone, but that won't help me when driving. Is there a ways to use the voice dialing without having to touch th... (continues)
I'm new to smartphones, so bear with me... What is the suggested application that would replace the Notepads in Multimedia phones? This phone has so many great apps, but I'm looking for a simple way to keep track of notes.
I went to the verizon store today and asked about the ALLY. They said it was delayed and there was no idea of when it WAS going to be released. The verizon rep told me that it would not be worth the wait as he said that LG basically pushed it into pr... (continues)
I have the Dare and still love it *However* the one department it's always lacked in is its camera- specifically, very poor zoom and very poor flash technology. 3.2 megapixel wasn't bad until now with the Droid at 5 and Incredible coming out at 8! So why didn't LG come up to speed with its Android competitors? The other feature I wanted to really wanted to see get better is the audio portion of video-taking. The Dare's useless at concerts.
My wife has and Env3 with a 3mp camera and it takes better pictures than my Eris at 5mp. Megapixels are everything. If you want a wallpaper for your phone, a contact photo, maybe some quick uploads to facebook, than 3+ mp is more than sufficient. An... (continues)
LG is trying to keep the price down. They want to provide an entry level android phone with a qwerty keyboard to verizon. (99$ after rebate) Its the only android phone that has a full qwerty for 100$ or less...
I would wait on some full on reviews about the phone before passing judgment, but from your hands on it seems like it might be a decent "Me Too" android phone (aka, an entry level one.. because even if it's only an extra $100 to get the prime lineup, for some people that's too much.)
So on the low end Verizon will have the Ally (Stock android), Devour (MOTOBLUR), and the Droid Eris (Sense, until it is sold out)
Of the three, only Devour is running old software now.
Only downside for reps (IMO) is that It's going to be even harder to position the KIN now I think. That, and hopefully the battery on this one will be secure, unlike the Touch
