Warning: back up your phonebook

My lg vi-125 just deleted all of the phone numbers saved in my contact list. It still lists all of the names of the people in my contact list, but their phone numbers are all gone.

This happened after I deleted a contact list entry. I think I remember reading on a different message board where someone else had this happen.

I have had this phone about 6 months and like it alot. This is the only bug I have encountered. Just make sure to back your contact info somehow. Everyone should do this anyway...you shouldn't have your cell phone be the only place that important phone numbers are saved.

Exterior backlight contantly stays on.. NOT during charging

I often reach into my purse to check the time on my phone and find the exterior backlight has been on for who-knows how long, and my battery is almost dead. The only thing I can do to make it shut off is restart the phone, which only temporarily fixes the problem. I think it would stay on for the rest of my life if the battery didn't die first. And no, I don't have the backlight set for more than 8 seconds, so how is this happening? I sent it for repairs because of the hassle of charging my battery every night, and my battery was put in the loaner phone with no exterior display, and surprise surprise, my battery lasted 4-5 days at a time. Because my phone only does it at random times, my phone just HAD to behave while in the shop, and as soo...

In the info section on here it says "YES" under USB compatibility. When I bought the phone at a Sprint store today I specifically asked if the phone would support USB and they said no. Does anyone know if there is indeed a cable for this model phone out there somewhere?

Headset issue

I use a radioshack HS-1957 headset with my cell phone. It has worked well with Samsung A460 and A400 and my Sony cordless phone. I have had my LG VI-125 for about a week. When I get in the car, I usually plug the headset in to the cell phone. This way, if the phone rings, I just put on the headset and press talk.

I have figured out that the phone places calls by itself while the headset is plugged in. It usually happens when I enter or exit the car.

I bought a new headset from RadioShack (it has the Plantronics name on it) and now I notice that whenever I plug *this* set in to the phone, the phone redials the last number immediately.

Also, as I have read here before, the headset earpiece volume is very low on the LG VI-125. Tu...

LG 125

Get ready for another freebie from LG. It does have full duplex speakerphone but that is about the only good thing about this phone. I don't expect it to be too good of a phone. It will sell well since it is free but it will have issues!

CCD Camera Phones

Were there any camera phones that use a CCD sensor rather than a CMOS?

All the megapixels in the world done mean a thing if the lens and the sensor are not high quality.

If you compare the MPX220 1.3 mp CMOS camera to the SE S710A 1.3 mp CCD camera there is no comparison.

Aside from the s710a are any other manufacturers planing on putting together a phone with a CCD camera to compete with the s710a?

The reason I ask is that I like all the features on the Sony-ericsson, but I do not like their interface. I may stand alone on this fact but I prefer the motorola interface, especially when it comes to their predictive text input and various menu navigation.

I am trying out the s710a for a few days and I have decided they...

LG VI-125 backlight

I just received my LG VI-125. One thing I've
noticed is that the LCD backlight stays on
continuously when the phone is connected to
the charger. This is the case regardless of
whether the flip opened or closed. An LG rep
told me that there's no setting that will
change this, my phone isn't defective, and
this is common in other LG models. This is my
first LG, but I've never seen this on any
other phone that I've owned. If anyone can
shed some light on whether or not the rep was
correct, I'd appreciate it.

Text messaging problem?

I called Sprint to see if this phone was available, and the salesman warned me that reading incoming text messages require logging on to Wireless Web. Has anybody had this problem?

I think what is missing

That should have been reported were the small upstart companies.

I talked to some of the manufacturer reps and more than a few of them were impressed with the design and build qualities of some of the smaller Chinese and Korean venture groups.

One group that was really impressive at the show was NewGen with their really cool designs.

Under an inform discussion in the eating area, some of the these product managers feel that in the next 10 years, some of them (like Hop On, Bird, New Gen, Telson) maybe in the top 10 market and some of the older stalwarts in the world markets (like Alcatel, Philips, Siemens and Mitsubishi) may pull out as phones becomes total commodity items.

About "Cingular" on the F7200 screen...

Like I mentioned for reasons stated in the new Part 2, I complied with LG's request and covered up the carrier logo on the F7200 keypad.

I'm sure some of you also noticed that it said "Cingular" on the display, and I did not cover that up...

That was intentional. It was not an oversight, and is not any kind of "cheating" with LG's request.

The deal is... what a GSM phone says on the screen is not necessarily the carrier that brands and sells that phone. Depending on how the phone and/or SIM chip are configured, the name on the screen is usually that of the carrier that sold the SIM, or the current network the phone may be roaming on.

So the fact that it says "Cingular" on the screen means very little and doesn't necessarily gives...

Lack of Quad-Band GSM phones

I am always amazed that more carriers don't spend the extra money and make their GSM phones Quad-Band (850/900/1800/1900) instead of coming out with one or even two tri-band versions of the same phone.

I realize that very few people actually seek out quad-band phones, but if you're making the phone capable for three frequencies, why not four?

Perhaps the rest of the manufacturers know something that Motorola will not admit - that squeezing 4 radios in these compact phones affects RF performance.

Anyway I will continue to only purchase quad-band, as the last thing I want to do is get stuck wishing I had GSM 900 in Gabon or GSM 1800 in Trinidad. And you pretty much need 850/1900 here in the states. Oh well.
