Is the Phone for Me?

Next week it will be time to trade in my LG VX8700 (New Every 2). I'm uncertain which phone I want to go with, but I've been looking at the Dare since it came out last summer.

I am not a texter, but do like to get my emails and perhaps the option to quickly surf the net to find info. However, the ability to receive and actually hear my calls is the most important feature.

Everything I've read points me to the Dare, but is Verizon ready to roll something else out in the next few months to replace the Dare? If so, I want to wait. It seems I've always just a few months behind the curve when it comes to phones, so I want to get the best bang for the buck.

Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

New Year pricing... buy now or later?

Do you think that current price of the LG Dare($120ish) will increase or decrease after the new year. Historically does Verizon lower the prices of a phone like this over the Christmas season and then increase it again after the busy season or continue to decline the price to move new merchandise in after the new year. I am not sure. Any help would be awesome. thanks.

Touch Sensitivity

Has anyone's touch sensitivity become "Worse" after doing the firware up date to Ver. 5? I think mine may have gotten worse. Or it can also be that I added that ZAGG invisisheild to my Dare screen. Anyone experiencing any problems? 👀

V03 vs V05

I had my 1st Dare replaced today due to an "internal memory" problem. When I got home I set the phone to the options I like & then checked the software version. My "new" Dare is V03 while my 1st one was V05. I tried a software update but was shown "no available updates". Does anyone know if here are any important upgrades between V03 & V05? I usually keep my phones up-to-date but wonder if I should/need to go back to the Verizon store for the V05 update or just wait. Thanks!

Picture question

I went ahead and got the LG Dare 9700. So far loving this phone. I was curious how to get pictures stored in my computer onto the phone? It seems like Verizon really controls options like this so it might not be possible....or I am just stupid and can't make it happen. thank you all for your help.

Heads-Up... SD card problem with DARE...

There have been ongoing reports of the DARE locking up during access to the expansion card (reading or writing)... I have now narrowed down the combination that causes the problem...

After much testing with dozens of microSD 2GB, 4GB & 8GB / Class(2), (4) & (6) and with 4 DAREs, a clear problem has been found...

The DARE does not like 4GB and 8GB Class(6) cards... All other sizes and all cards of Class (2) or (4) do not cause any problems...

So if you are having lock-ups during access to a Class(6) microSD card of 4 or 8GB... then try a slower card... your problem should go away...

The worst offenders are the SanDisk 4GB & 8GB Class(6) cards (note that these are actually the fastest of all the cards tested) the Lexar, Kingston, P...

phone resetting

Well, I've had my Dare for a couple of months. I decided I wanted to look at some of my old text messages that were in the inbox. I clicked on the top message and slid that to the right in order to get the bottom of the list. Then I started to scroll up a bit and started to see some of these blank messages! No more then a second later did the phone reset. I had about 200 messages in the inbox. I then tried it on another Dare and it did the same thing.

Software Update

Ok so I have called Verizon to get the update to sw version 5 and basically when I call tech support they told me the update does not exist. Also that the update for the Venus as well does not. They told me the version software we have in our phones, 3, is the latest. Any reason they would say this? I live in the Ft. Myers FL area if it has anything to do with it.

movie display size

Only one complaint with this awesome phone so far.... I converted a movie to MP4 and downloaded it to my SD card in my phone... unless i'm missing something I can't play the movie full screen, by that I mean the movie has about a 3/8" border all around it, which displays icons when you touch the screen, I want to zoom in all the way to full screen, the movies would look so much better as they would be larger... you can zoom on a photo to full screen... a widescreen movie would be perfect full screen.... anybody have any ideas???
