Dropped v265 in toilet
Dropped call problem...
I just got off the phone with their (verizon) technical support and they told me it is because I am inside my house, car, etc. They said I should expect to have 4-5% of my calls dropped. Does anyone else have this problem? Is this many dropped calls normal? It is ge...
v265 Power On button - problem?
I have just purchased 2 v265s and I notice something peculiar with one of them. When I press the power on button on one of the phones (press it once, not hold it as the manual instructs to turn on the phone), I notice the screen cycles on and off. My other new v265 does not do this?
Is this a problem? Does this happen on anybody else's phone? It doesn't bother me but I don't want it to be a symptom of a future problem or a lemon as I am now in a return period since I just purchased the phones.
Thanks for any help and insight.
weird time display issue
One of the main reasons I got the 265 is the tri-mode feature, since here in Vermont I sometimes have to drive out of range of the digital network. Twice now, in the past couple of weeks, I've been in Hyde Park, an area with only analog service, and found that my time display had reset to 12:00 and started running again from that time. I haven't had it happen anyplace else, and none of my other features were affected. It's possible that it only happened after I made a call while in the analog zone, I just don't remember.
This isn't the biggest problem in the world, since I'm never without my watch or my Palm, but does anyone know what might be causing thi...
Am I stupid, or is there no way for screensavers to work w/v265?
Screensaver minimum delay is 1 minute.
Back light maximum idle time is 50 seconds.
Before the screensaver can ever appear, the light goes out.
Am I doing something wrong, or is this phone really that lame?

V265 vs V551
I am getting V551 for two reasons: bluetooth and lower SAR. Hopefully I didn't make a mistake.
Amazing data cable with software
I purchased a data cable with software called Handset Manager from Fry's electronics, this little package really surprises me! With reasonable price (better price than any other data cable and software), and the software just provides more great features! You gotta try it to believe!!! Handset Manager, you are just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! ! !
V265 battery problem or is it really corrosion
I took my 3 month old V265 to the Verizon store because after any length of charging, the phone showed a low battery.
Initially the Verizon tech said, "I have seen this happen and it just takes a software update. Leave the phone and it will take about an hour."
When I returned he said, "I found corrosion on the accessory port and that invalidates the warranty. However, I will replace it for a $50 fee and you will also have to purchase insurance for $4.99 a month"
I told him I did not want to buy insurance and so he just handed the phone back to me without saying anything else. I guess I am not that quick thinking in these kind of situations, so I just left. I should probably have asked to see the...
MP3 RING TONES, or music tones with words
Need LCD Screen/Casing Related Help
Is the LCD screen covered by a second layer on this phone or is it bare? Whichever is the case, how do I replace the scratched piece or get the scratch out? Any thoughts ?
Also, is there any way to replace the silver side part of the casing that the covers don't protect? The "elbows" at the top are pretty dinged up.
PS. Any thoughts on the 900 mAh Li-ion extended batteries? Will they overheat?
Ringer doesnt work...
Problem is that the ringer doesnt work when receiving a call. Vibe works on its own and on vibe/ring setting. Ring setting on Loud...no ring??
What is the deal? Am i missing a setting somewhere?? The volumes are up, ringer on with selected ring tones, but NO ring??
Going to go back in the morning and have them look at it, but figured it was worth a shot on here...
Self Portrait Feature.
ticking in earpiece with call timer activated?
V265 Picture Caller ID.
Just got my phone today and in the back of the box it states:
Get pix: Style it! Add sound and text to your favorite shots, turn them into wallpaper or "Set up caller id to see a picture of who's calling".
I have tried looking everywhere in the phone for this option and its not there.
Im signed up with Verizon so I'd thought maybe its a "Get It now!" feature so I went to the website and spent a while looking for something similar but no luch.
Anybody has any ideas why it would state in the box if not available?
Thanks in advance!
Btw, the no date issue on the home page of the phone is totally lame!
Transfering Pics, ringtones, etc
I did a search of this forum, and it looks like the functionality is disabled in the Motorola Phone Tools software with this phone. Is this true? Are there any other "creative" alternatives I should be aware of?
Can't see the date?
Deleting Phonebook icons???
Is there any way to remove the icon for the Voicemail entry in the phonebook. When we got the phone from Verizon, there was an entry for voicemail (slot #1) and it didn't have an icon (e.g. mobile, home, etc). I had accidentally deleted this entry, so I made a new entry in Slot #1 for voicemail. However, it automatically defaults to have an icon. There's no obvious way to remove the icon.
I realize that this is a tiny problem, but it bugs the hell out of me.
Also, if you do have experience with other phones, how would you say the sound quality compares to either the V710 or the Vx7000?
