Just wondering how this works on here. My old old old Samsung SCH-411 would show me the name of the person if it was in the address book. Oddly though, when I did the 15 day thing with an A850 from Samsung, it just showed the number instead of the name. Just wanted to know how it worked on either a 276 or V710. It's impossible for me to decide whether to pick up or not since I can't remember everybody's phone # you know. Thanks 🙂
Does anyone know where I can get an OEM faceplate for the V265/V276? My V276 came with the shiny silver to black fade Verizon faceplate that's gotten very scratched. I'd like to replace it with the matte black one shown in the pictures on this website.
I've seen a V265 with the date display on the inside screen as something like "1/11/05." This was a Verizon dealer (Radio Shack). I would like to purchase online or at a Verizon store. They (at the Verizon Store) had never seen such and thought I was crazy. Anybody know anything?
Has anyone else heard about the V323 replacing the V265?
I was reading about the Motorola V323 cell phone that is suppose to be coming out the second half of this year which is a major upgrade to the V265 series. I was wondering if anyone else heard or has anymore information about that.
🙂 Had my V265 since Nov12th (day they came out) and its been a very solid phone (screen sucks and I don't know the date, but the phone works great!) It wouldn't wake up one morning, took it to my local VZW store, they replaced it w/ a nice refurb and moved my number over all in less than 10 minutes and didn't cost me a thing. (They offered to move my phone book for a fee, but I sync'd it w/ my Mac at the counter--so I'm set.) Expected to be out $100 or so, and no phone for a day or two, but VZW really supported me this time around.
Has anyone tried sync'ing this phone with Lotus Notes? I'm thinking about buying this phone and would like to keep it sync'd with my contacts and calendar. I was able to do this with Outlook and my v60i. I still have the data cable and mobile phone tools software from my v60i. Will these still work with the v276 and Lotus Notes?
The voice recognition on the 265 is great most of the time. I do have one problem. A lot of times when I say "name dial" the phone thinks I said "re-dial" and takes off dialing the last number dialed. Anybody else have this problem? It does this on both my phone and my wifes, so it is not just a voice or phone.
Hi, I just got the phone yesterday - just wondering about a few things. I already see there's an issue displaying the date (I have the AC plan - about a year old) I was wondering what happened to my custom banner? I had one on there yesterday, and it worked fine. (I was testing features) I then erased it and kept it back at the Verizon banner... now I decided to try it again, and no matter what I put in as a banner... the Verizon one is still displaying - I even shut it off, and turned it back on - Still nothing. Is there a setting or something I did that it's not displaying the banner anymore? Also... when I was trying out the phone in the store... when you would dial a number - instead of a "beep" when you pressed a key.. it would actually... (continues)
was there ever a software update for the V265 so the date shows on the lcd?
I read some older posts about a Motorola update for this problem, but have not able to find anymore info. Is the update done via dialing in to your provider like roaming updates? I just got the phone a few weeks ago so I am assuming the software is up to date, but sure would like to see the date on both screens. Thanks for any help.
hello. how is the v265 speaker phone compared to the cd8910? i have the 8910 but its really quiet as far as i can tell. i also dont like the fact that i cant close the phone using the speaker phone. it seems like v265 is my only other alternative. even the earphone seems to be quieter than normal? if anyone can suggest another phone i'd even consider that in my trial period.
