Video Quality of the Dare

I currently own the Voyager and I am very disappointed in the video playback. During the hockey season I signed up to get premium videos from my favorite team - the were so small it was nuts.

How is the video on the Dare? I am giving serious consideration to getting a iPhone as I have been impressed with the entire phone.

I tried again to look at the Dare and was told not until the 3rd would it be available in the stores.

V06 is now available

Just thought I'd let all Dare owners know. Unfortunately, I do not know what the upgrade is supposed to improve. I upgraded from V05 to V06 Monday and haven't noticed anything different.

Is the Dare Dead?

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?

lg dare

Is it harmful to leave the phone plugged in to the charger overnight even when turned off? I was told "not to charge it for over 3 hours" or it will damage the Li ion battery.

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?

LG Dare

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...

thinking about buying on monday

Was just curious to know if anyone knows if you can add your own ringtones to the phone? Possibly via memory card or is that option not available on the phone?

🙂 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!

LG Dare & Mac OSX Leopard

🙄 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...

Recommend a Converter?

I have a few movies that i am trying to load onto my dare, but i just cant seem to find a good converter.

so far i have tried 'Super' and 'Quick Media Converter'. i'll admit i do like 'super' and it works fine, but it comes with so much adware that my computer cant keep up.

any recommendations? what converter do you use?
