Changing the faceplate

I am having the hardest time changing the faceplate on this phone. I can get one screw out but not the rest.

Anybody else have trouble?

Has anyone changed it with success?

Can anyone help me out? 😢

Make video or animated gif a wallpaper?

Probably has been asked, but i've been searching through the forums and i'm not finding jack.

I read w/ the 8100 you could put vid clips/gifs so that when you open your phone you actually see the animation/video going.

I would love to have this feature. HOW?

Thanks in advance!

how do you back up the datebook on the VX8000?

just got a replacement phone due to my old one shutting off all the time, even after the firmware update.

i copied all my files using a usb and bitpim. however, the calendar is grayed out, so apparently bitpim is not compatible with the calendar function.

i haven't had any luck with backing up and restoring with qpst. i can back my old phone up, but can't restore to the new one. it recognizes it, but won't write to it. i forget what the error is write now.

are there any options for backing that calendar up?

Battery life

What kind of battery life are you getting with the battery that comes with the phone.
I have been able to get it to show 4 bars for 24 hrs in standby. Do you reccomend the extend battery?

what happened to the LG8000?

I was just searching through the phones that Verizon offers and didn't see the LG8000. I was considering the Motorola E815, but keep hearing people complaining about the "echo" and the low battery life when it switches from EVDO to 1x. SO, next I was looing for the LG8000. It's gone, anyone know what happened? Is it completely discontinued?

questions for the masses...

1. does using Bitpim and/or QPST void your phone's warranty?

2. does using a non-verizon charger of any kind or USB cable void your phones warranty?

3. can a verizon techie actually tell if you have used one of the above like they claim?

my phone is experiencing some issues, i cannot receive messages unless i am in a call or transmitting data of any kind. sucks, but cust serv said take it to a service center. so i am scared. 😢

VX-8000 modem

I was just wondering if verizon charges for using the vx-8000 as a modem for my computer using their service (your-phone-#@vz23g.com). I do not have Vcast in my area so I would guess it would cost me my min. on my plan but do they charge for anything else like how many bytes I've sent and received?
