Okay, I placed a message a few days ago. NOW, I was using this phone tonight and sitting still with a perfect signal. About 10 or 15 minutes into the conversation, all of a sudden, it dropped the call. I wasn'tmoving at all, sitting completely still on the sofa. Then I called the person back from the same place and stayed connected for an hour straight. Does anyone else have this problem with their 6100 dropping calls from places that some days (or some hours) they get a great signal and others not??? I am considering getting the Motorola e815, but am worried about the echo that people are complaining about.
I just read your review for the LG VX6100 and saw that you can use your speakerphone with the phone closed. I was wondering if you would be able to help me with that! When I close my phone while on speakerphone, it just hangs up the call.. If you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would really appreciate it.
I know, I know... Beleive it or not, I DID search.
From what I've been reading, I BELIEVE the size limit on mp3 ringtones is 100K, however, I sent my phone a somewhat larger file (over 100K if I remember correctly) and it said it exceeded the 30K limit? My phone tells me 30K, is it really 100K? Also, so far I have been successful sending my phone mp3's (30K or smaller), is it ultimately neccessary to change the format to .mid?
I just bought the vx 6100 yesterday. It seems like a pretty good phone. too soon to tell. However, I've already experienced the volume bug. I went to Verizon and the tech told me that the software upgrade is not available yet. Then I called 800 cust svc, they had no clue about the bug. I then called LG cust svc, they admitted that there was a bug and they are working on a patch. They gave no estimate of when it will be available. Verizon offered to switch out my phone to another vx 6100. But there is no guarantee that the new phone won't have the same problem. any thoughts? suggestions?
i have been looking on the boards but unable to find the correct answer to this question. Is there a way to voice dial calls when the phone is closed? i know i can do "drive mode", which seems pointless for calling if i have to open the phone anyway- if i open the phone the phone i might as well speed dial the person. I am aware of receiving calls on drive mode, but i am interested in voice dialing calls when the phone is closed. ALSO, is there a way to voice dial (with the phone open) without hitting a key (i.e. just saying "call xxxxxx")? I have a LG 4650, but am curious about the 6100.
well, i've had this thing for a week now, and i was expecting the very worst as far as dropped calls. i have traveled extensively in PA, NY, and NJ, and have spent a good chunk of each day on the phone while driving (at least a couple of hours a day over the past 2 days in particular). this phone hasn't dropped a single call yet. it is so strange to me how the same phone can perform so differently for different people!
that said, the call quality leaves a lot to be desired. there is often a persistant static hiss. sometimes there will be an echo. sometimes there will be this background hiss that you hear only after after you say something into the phone. pretty annoying, but not enough to drive me crazy like the voice feedback problem the...

i was wondering if anyone could tell me where i could find a nice case for my phone. its starting to get scratched up. but i heard some cases muffle the sound of the speaker and i'd rather not have that happen! do all the cases have that annoying clear peice across the outside display. because i know how that thing can get dirty. any help would be great. thanks!
My VZW acct is in the Ohio market and Ohio website and CS does not have access to phone. However, I live in the Nashville, TN market. Phone just became available on verizonwireless.com with TN market zip code. I searched under the TN zip and then logged in and chose to upgrade and it let me do it. I even called to confirm that I didnt have to wait until it was available from the Ohio market and they said no, my order was in processing and was scheduled to be shipped out by 5pm today!
Get em while you can. If the buzz is any proof, this phone may be one of the most popular ones yet!
I have had the 6100 for several months now. At first, dropped calls were a problem as I had the Motorola T720 for 2 years and NEVER had a dropped call. Much to my surprise, this situation is just getting worse. VERIZON has exchanged the phone once already and will do it again if I choose to, but I know that it is not just a problem with this specific handset.
ALSO, I have had many many times as well where someone calls and my phone never rings. Their voicemail goes right through to my handset though.
I have updated the towers as Verizon told me to and that does not seem to help at all.
Additionally, when I download the tones from VERIZON get it now ( the real singing ringtones) and preview them....they are choppy the fir... (continues)
