Headset with Answer/End button

When I picked up my new v265 phone, RadioShack bundled an accessory pack that included a "Body Glove - Earglove Flex" headsent. This headset includes an Answer/End button, but that button doesn't seem to work for me. It won't answer or end calls.

I'm just curious, should the v265 accept any universal headset with answer/end or does it need one specifically made for a Motorola phone?

Motorola V265 or LG 4500

Hi,

I am thinking to get new instrument and I am not able to decide which instrument to go with - LG 4500 or Motorola V265. I understand that one was camera in it and other does not, which is not really a important criteria for me. I am considering following factors:
-Instrument should not heat up when you are in converstation for about half to one hour.
- Battery life
- Ease of use
- Able to easily download stuff on phone - ringtones or other easily (but not that important).

Please can you share your experience about it.


Thanks in advance for your time and input.

Datebook Error

When I put an event in my datebook, the same event is listed the following day. When I tried to delete the event on the wrong date, both events were removed. Anybody have this problem?

Also, what are the magic numbers to get software updates?

Sync with MS Outlook- does it work (well enough to bother)

OK, have my new V265. Is as good as advertised in terms of reception- WOW! It's a keeper. Now, do I have to manually enter the 100 numbers from Outlook? If not, can someone tell me in a nutshell what I must buy to do this.

I naiively purchased a datacable, but no device driver. I assumed this would be easily available online. So far, I can not figure out what to do. Seems I must by some software, but there appear to be a few options and I want to hear from someone who has made it work.

Thanks!

drivers for moto v265 & mobile office kit

😕

I have a mobile office kit from verizon wireless. I love it, and used it with my 720. Then I got the 265, now I can't get it to recognize the phone. seems that I don't have the correct drivers. I'm not about to pay another $40 for something that I don't really need.
does anyone know where I can download/get the drivers?

Silencing the Keypad tones and Text msging

I just exchanged my phone for a new one because of the illumination problems. I need to change the setting on the new phone and I forgot how to do 2 things:

1) How to adjust/turn off the keypad tones

2) Turn off the auto-completion in text messaging (or whatever it's called when the phone automatically finishes words for you after you key in the first couple letters- annoying as hell for me).

Text Display Size

Can anyone comment on the text display size? The V265 looks like everything I need in a phone but my concern is the text size. I get a lot of messages from my answering service text messaged to me, and I've reached the point where unless the display can be adjusted to a pretty good size I can't make it out w/o reading glasses. Not always convenient if I'm say driving around.

price drop

i got my son a v265 for christmas for $119 with a $50 rebate.found out that they're now $49.i went to the store and asked since i was still in my 15 day trial period if i could have the $49 price.he said he would ask his manager(if he said no,i was ready to say "then i'm bringing it back"),about 5 min later he came back and said he couldn't give me cash but he could credit my account with $70.i said cool. just thought it might save someone $20 and the hassle of waiting on the rebate.by the way,when i bought my phone(dec.23)they told me because of christmas the trial period was extended to jan.15.hope this helps someone.

Stupid people

Anyone that says the the camera on this phone sucks is just stupid. It works fine, it's the screen that sucks. I have transfered many pictures from the phone to my computer and they turn out fine. Real fine for a 640X480. So get your fact right before you trash this phone! Oh an also the LG 6100 is a cheap "me too" Korean phone that has sh_t reception, so to all you that switched I say enjoy!!! 😈 😈

Flash or No Flash?

On the Verizon website, it says the v265 has "camera with flash" - am I missing something here, because I don't see any flash on mine - nothing in the manual either... is this a verizon typo or do I have a flash on this thing?? 😕 I just got it, so I'm still learning all the extra features... thanks! 😁

Backlight not turning off

This is in response to phone not shutting off when closed. I've had it do it once, but it was turning off, it was the backlight not turning off. How do I know? I manually pressed the button. Screen went blank, but light was on. Funny thing was, I took the battery out a\nd all the other tricks and the back light stayed on. Then, I opened it and it slipped and slammed **** and never had the problem again so far.

I just travelled from IL to FL and used the earpiece and it worked just great. I closed the phone and it hung up just fine. Somebody mentioned that it wouldn't do that.

Now, I do have one thing that kind of bothers me. When I have the car charger plugged in, I find that the backlight stays on when closed. I just checked...
