Predictive Text...

Is there a way to default T9 when creating at text on this phone, or do I have to change it every time I wanna send a message?

Spyder recalled.

http://www.nytimes.com/external/gigaom/2009/02/27/27 ... »

Earlier today, the LG Spyder 830 cell phone was recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which said it presented a hazard to the public because it doesn t hold a connection and has poor voice quality during 911 emergency calls. The recall stems from a report of a trapped motorist who tried reaching 911 from a disabled car but whose call was dropped because the network couldn t establish a signal. That person, thankfully, turned out to be uninjured. The commission has or...

(that's the only portion I can get to from behind the corporate firewall here...)

Bluetooth Ringtones

I have bluetoothed a lot of ringtones from my old phone to this phone, but am unable to set the tones for contacts or any incoming calls. I was wondering if anyone has found a way to do this or has any advice? Thanks!

Glimmer Pricing


I was just curious on when/if anyone knows generally when the price on phones changes. I know this phone has only been out since May or so and the price has dropped but didn't know if someone knew a price time table of sorts.

Let me know please.

I just purchased this phone and was going to play around with it. When i plugged the USB cable into my phone and computer it says to insert the disk for it. I don't have the disk so I was wondering if there was a way around this so I don't have to spend another 50 bucks just so I can get music etc on the phone. If anyone knows a way around this let me know. Thanks

Observations and Questions, Glimmer

hey all. i sell cell phones for 3 carriers and i have been so excited about the competition that has popped up for the iphone generation. the glimmer, i had incredibly high hopes for and even higher when they addressed the ascending ringer issue 'quickly' (couldve been much faster).

i'll start off by saying no place for the stylist but looping the string through a little hole? not nice.

the keypad sucks. its just so cheap feeling. it's razorish. blah is all i can really say. texting sucks on it, but i'm getting use to texting on the touch screen. so if you're a mad texter, i wouldnt convince you to get a glimmer. at all. =(

the slide option is definitely a cool concept and in the dark when it slides with the sound effect... o...

Voice dial and speaker phone - I guess I'm clueless

LG Vantage -
Since the available manuals are completely useless on these subjects, how do I get either of these to work.

I've managed to set a voice dial for my home number but for the life of me I can't figure how to get it to dial when I say the word.

Also how to you activate/deactivate speaker phone.

I'm only an IT Consultant. I guess I'm not technical enough. 😁

Audio issues?????

Does anyones Glimmer sound fuzzy??? When I am talking on the phone there is a hissing noise between me and the person on the other end which makes my conversation sound fuzzy! When the phone initially connects it makes a loud click noise and then I start to her the hissing/static noises and it stays there throughout the conversation. I have full bars when this happens and I have traded the phone in twice thinking it was the phone itself. A cell rep said it could be a software issue....... Is this normal.....it is driving me NUTS!!! I might trade back the phone for good if this is the way it normally sounds. I have never owned an LG before??? Please HELP!!! Is there any way I can fix it????

flashing question

does anyone think this phone can be flashed to run the lg dare software? i know it doesnt have the accelorometer, but it would still be nice 🙂

i was just wondering if this phone allowed bluetoothing from one phone to another (i.e., ringtones, songs, pictures, etc) because i love everything about the phone but that is the determining factor for me. please respond asap so i can get it now if it does!! thanks!

Chat client?

Does anyone know if the Glimmer comes with a chat client? Or if one is available for download?
With my Samsung u520 (from Alltel), both AIM and Yahoo chat client software came already installed on the phone.

LG Glimmer Ringing Issue Fix

Good Afternoon,
I am a regional manager for alltel, and yes we go on Phonescoop too 🙂

Just letting everyone know that while we will not be able to provide a fix for the ringer increasing slowingly, we are able to do something else for you:

Your phone rings 5 times when someone calls you, by calling into Alltel we can make your phone ring 6 times, allowing you an extra ring to get to your phone. If 6 still is not enough, we can do 7 but i will use your airtime. The ringing process cannot last over 30 seconds, and 7 rings goes over that limit, therefore you will be using your airtime for everything over the 30 seconds, and THIS IS FOR EVERY CALL. I hope this helps you, as we try to provide the best for our customers.

As of now, We c...

How does the camera work??

I saw in the page for the glimmer here that the phone is sideways when showing the camera. Therefore, I am wondering can it take pictures sideways (and have the screen reorient itself) and use a side button as a capture? Because if it could be used like a camera in that respect that would be awesome!! Thanks for any info you can provide...
