I went to buy the Dare about 2 days ago and the phone has gone up $50!!! Does anyone else think this is ridiculous?? would love to know. Verizon told me that the phone being sold for 129.00 was ONLY a promotion from Feb. 12-14. thanks ;)
Does anyone know if there is a setting in the phone that will disable the phones ability to log on to the internet?
A friend has a son that has the Dare and he has a plan to pay by MB. He accidentally pressed the wrong keys, realized his mistake and canceled as quick as possible. He used .1 MB ----- that's correct ----- .1 MB and was charged $1.99 !!!
Okay, so I imported a few of my CD's, and downloaded the album artwork and tagged the artwork to the proper cd's and songs. I sync my DARE to my PC to transfer the songs. The songs transfer, but no album artwork.
Is pocket dialing a problem with the Dare? I'm getting this phone in 4 days and I just read a negative review about it on Amazon. His main complaint was that it pocket dials alot. He says the phone's lock is nearly useless and doesn't prevent the misdials. Is this true? Have other Dare owners had similar problems? I plan to carry the Dare in my pocket (with a full-body Zagg InvisibleShield) and I'm not getting a plan with a ton of voice minutes. Pocket dials would not be good for me. Any experience?
Ok, so I KNOW this isnt an Iphone, its much better. but where are all the cool apps VZW? where is the cool one where you shake the phone and it gives you restaurant info. or the one that will find you a cab in whatever city you find yourself. or the one that will let you listen to the radio. or the.. well you get the point.
where are the cool apps, that i can get, to show my iphone friends that my phone is way cooler? (i cant even brag about visual voicemail) Dammit VZW!
I had the shortcuts bin up and somehow I held and was able to drag a shortcut to my main screen. Now I have this shortcut on my main screen all the time and do not want it there. Can someone tell me how to get that off of the main screen? Thanks
I'm getting a Dare in a week and I've never bothered putting music on a phone before. We're talking total newbie here. Can someone PLEASE explain to me an easy way to get music and album art on the phone if I do not want to order it over the phone and I do not want to subscribe to Rhapsody? I usually buy DRM-free songs from Amazon.com. Can I transfer those to the phone somehow? Would I have the album art? Sorry if this is really basic stuff, but I'd really appreciate any tips. Thanks!
Just got my dare this week for the internet and music features.
Currently using plug in headset and plug in earbuds.
SD card music playback is good. Vcast music playback is good Featured video playback from sites good.
However.....Youtube audio is Not good-sounds like the audio is underwater or using a flange special effect and also has poor frequency range. My buddy at work has internet on his phone which is a different model/company and it also sounds bad on youtube playback. Home computer plays back the same videos with acceptable audio which I record and put on sd card.
Am wondering if a bluetooth stereo headset would play back the vids with good audio?
HORRIBLE pictures taken with my Dare.. very dissapointed
So i know, i know, you guys are probably thinking, "yeah.. thats why i never use my phone as my main source of pictures, especially on vacation." anyways, i went to Vegas and used my Dare to take many pictures... at the CES convention, at the AVN convention (look that up lol), on the strip, in the hotel, and even in the clubs. I printed out my pictures at walgreens and the pictures look like they were taken with an old school Motorola V710. they look cristal clear on my myspace and when i review them in my phone, but look horrible on 4x6 prints.
you wanna know the funny thing?
My best friend has an ENv2 and her pictures lookd waay better than mine printed out.. does that make sense? a 2.0 mp producing better pics than a 3.2?
I use my Sony BT stereo to listen to music and also (sometimes) for call taking on my Dare. The headset works great on both.
What I can't figure out how to do though is use my stereo headset when I am listening to videos (youtube for example) on Mobile Web. The sound will not play through the headphones (neither mono or stereo), it plays through the speaker on the back or it will play through the wired headset port on top, but not through the bt headphones.
