How do I make it alert for missed calls???

I just bought this phone a few days ago and can't figure out how to make it alert me when I miss a call. Someone please tell me there's a way. Every other phone I've owned would beep every couple of minutes if I missed a call until I acknowledged. I thought they all did that. So far, the only way I can see to tell if a call was missed is to go through the menus and check manually. I work strictly on call and this is my only phone. I hate the idea of having to check the freakin' thing every time I get out of the shower, as opposed to it beeping to let me know. Is there a way???

I still think

that this is the best phone Verizon has to offer. The new LG 7000 is dissapointing, the a670 makes the pics look white, and only god knows when the V710 is coming out. This phone has the best screen that i've seen for vzw, the best battery life, and the best camera. Even though it has no video camera, it doesnt bother me for the fact that i have one anywayz.

BeasTboyz do you know what format the rintones half to be in

Do you know what format the mp3 file has to be transfered into so I can email the file so I can save it and use it for a ringtone.

So far when I send mid files to my phone, it says unsupported format and won't play the ring tone.

I'm using song.mid, and the format is like 65K and 20 clips. They are saved as MP3, and then I rename it .mid.

Let me know..

HOWTO: Get rings to your phone

It took me quite some time and calling to verizon to get this figured out, I figured I could save some people in my shoes some trouble by showing them how to transfer images and audio files to your phone from your computer.

Each time you send files to your computer its $.25 unless you have a plan with verizon. The lady from verizon on the phone said that each time you "send" its $.25, so put as many files as you can in there to save on sends. If you send 5 files at once its still just $.25.

2.) Log in with the account you made above and click the create button at the top of the page.

3.) For the To: information (as illustrated here: http://www.beastboyz.com/phone01.gif ), just enter t...

If this is not possible I would like to know that too so I can stop wasting my time.

I was looking into getting the Samsung SCH-a610 for verizon. Does it have the abitlity to take pictures and use them as caller id pictures. EX- say John called could I have taken a picture of John before and see his face on the screen when he calls. This model also only has the one main screen.. are there any other phone supported by verizon that have another small LCD on the outside that could do the same caller id picture funcion. I hope since i am new i haven't offended anyone or broken any rules (like posting in the wrong forum).. so please don't flame me if i have.

Proprietary crap!!

I've been reading many of the threads in this forum, and I'm suprised to see that nobody else has commented on this proprietary BS.

Granted that I'm still new to the cell phone world (this is my second phone 610A), I'm am still in shock that in order to get your pictures off of the phone, you have to pay, to get new tones, you have to pay, whether wifi or get it now, games you have to pay, everything you pay, in addition to your phone service and the cost of the phone.

Thats like buying a computer, and in order to put anything onto it, you have to go through the OEM, to copy anything off, you have to pay, to put your own work on you have to pay..

Further research into this, this lockdown service method is only predominant in the U...

WTF is wrong with Verizon????

RINGTONES from a msg

I was wondering if it was possible to recieve a tone in the form of a pix msg and then save it to your phone so taht u can use it as a ringtone later on

Apr 1, 2004, 12:24 AM

Need help with 2 things

1. When I press the voice recognition shortcut (*), the voice is really low i can barely hear it. Anyway to increase the volume?The ringer volume and everything else is ok.

2. When the phone is flipped open and nothing is touched for a minute and 15 seconds, the screen goes blank. Power save mode is off.

Thanks for all your help. Other than these 2 things, I love the phone.
