VERY quiet in here :)


Ever notice how quiet it is on this forum when taking into consideration how complex the Dare really is?

I personally think it speaks volumes as to how awesome this phone is!!

I try out most all the top end phones and this IMO is a keeper!

Battery - Charge Complete

When I charge my battery there is no way of telling when it is complete or not (my old phone use to say it on the screen when it was complete).

Has anyone else noticed this with the Dare or does yours say charge complete when it's done?

Is there a good armband out there for the dare?

I want to replace my Ipod Nano with the dare, and one thing I do is listen to music while running.

When I got the nano I bought an armband specially designed for it. However, there does not seem to be one specially designed for the dare. There is a generic one on verizon's website, but I don't think that would actually work for what I want.

Are there any games available for the Dare? I think the ones I have on my LG 8600 won't work on the Dare because of the Dare's touch screen and different layout.

Gmail on the Dare

Does anyone know how to add "GMail" to the "Mobile Email" application under the "Browse & download" menu? It only has Yahoo, AOL, MSN and Verizon.net. Is this even possible. I know I can acces it through my bowser regulary, but I would preffer through the Moblie Email.

So far not so good

I have AT&T and iphone but my Dad had Verizon and LG Dare. He just got the phone this week and here on phone scoop it say that the phone had PC SYNC, so I hook it up to the computer and then try to sync with contacts in outlook and I dont have any options on the phone to do this, so I call verizon and they tell my the only way to do this is to buy a $20 a month subscription to so kind of service and I tell them noway. Is this true can you really not sync verizons top phone with outlook with out pay to do so? If this is true I will just tell him to cancel and go with ATT and iphone,my iphone is so much nice and easyer to use and I can make ring tone for it as well with out having to pay to get them on the phone. Before some of you start to ta...

Texting default phone number

When I go to text, the default number that shows up is the home one, not the mobile one.

Is there a way to set the mobile one as the default?

Reception Quality?

I have read the reviews and am very impressed. The main thing I want to verify is the voice and earpiece quality. Can you comment on this.
Thanks, DQ

Dare and GrandCentral

I use Grandcentral for all my telephone needs. How easy is it to use GrandCentral with the Dare?

For those who don't know about GrandCentral, you have to press 1 to accept the call on that phone (you can set up other phone numbers and all will ring with the call).

So how hard is it to push the number 1 when accepting an incoming call?

Scrolling in the web browser?

I currently own an LG VX9800 and it's upgrade time. While I loved the phone I hated having to tap down repeatedly or hold the keypad button down just to scroll down while reading emails or web pages. How does scrolling on the Dare work. I was also looking into the Blackberry 8330 and I like the easy of the ball for scrolling.

Thanks in advance,

Viewing calendar while on the phone

Hello - I'm a new Dare owner and really like the phone. I was curious if anyone has found a way to view the calendar, while on the phone. I think this would be convenient to confirm appts.

I can get to the main menu, but I don't see a calendar option. I also am not certain if you can customize the main menu, besides just moving the icons around.

Questions about the DARE...

1- When the screen is off, I have to touch the buttons to get the screen to light up again. I can't figure out how the heck to change that setting so I can just touch the screen. Help?

2- Does anyone else have trouble scrolling through long text messages? The scrolling works fine everywhere else. It just won't let me scroll through long texts. Is that a phone issue?

3- Is there a way to change the menu items at the bottom of the main screen?

4- When using the browser, how to I change it back and forth from full internet to HTML?

5- How do I change the email notification settings? My phone buzzes every time I get an email and it's starting to drive me insane! :-)

I think that's it for now...any help will be appreciated. Thank...
