I have 2 ESN?

I bought a VX-8000 from a neighbor. I verified that the ESN shown under the battery is clear. But now I've gotten confused. If I go into the hidden service menu and look at "Service Pgm" it shows an ESN, and it is different (and longer) than the one under the battery. In fact it's written out over two lines; with a three digit code on the first line and a longer number on the second.

Does anybody understand that? Does this mean that the phone has had it's ESN changed since the label under the battery was printed? I'm so confused 🙂.

Here is some very helpful information i found on how to use a vx7000 cable with your vx8000 phone. Yes there are some bugs but other than that it looks great! Here is a link to the origanal forum. BE CAREFUL AND READ THE HOLE THING:

http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?s=216ceb6 ... »


To add video to the VX8000:

1. Connect your data cable to the vx8000 (at the time of this writing, the
vx6000 and vx7000 futuredial cables at radio shack worked).
2. load up QPST, in particular the EFS Explorer.
3. BACKUP and delete /dload/video.dat
4. browse to /brew/media/ and put a .3gp video file in the folder.

Hi! I got my vx8000 last Feb 1st and the headphones that came with it just broke! You gotta mess with the connection to make it work. Is it covered under the 1 year manufacturers warranty since it came with the phone?

Text Message Capacity

The incoming text message capacity is limited at 50 messages. I still have over 40 MB's of Contents Memory still available. Does anyone know of how I can make it so my inbox can allow more messages? Maybe by allocating some of the Contents Memory? Any other way? Thanks in advance for any help!

v4 to v7 possible on the LG8000?

Hello members of the forum,

I was looking around, the 8100 forum, and came across a post that for the most part, seems to help with the "delay of shot" issue, on the 8100. I dont own that version, I own a 8000, but unless I'm just dead wrong, its essentially the same phone, just a little smaller with blue tooth and working mp3 controls, correct?

Would this V.7 update, also work on the LG8000 that I currently own? and honestly, its no truly big deal, but would help not have to have to, set the pic up and say "hold for just 1 more min" while I do everything to keep my pic from shaking or smearing.

I will ride with this phone till it breaks apart in my hand, have had nothing but wonderful experiences with it, just was hopping in a sma...

bitpim & videos
