Cant turn off computer voice on the phone

I dont know if this is an easy fix or not but i cant figure out how to get rid of the computer voice that says "verizon wireless" before my ringtone comes on. also i cant make the phone stop saying in a computer voice all of the settings, like if i go to voice commands and i hit on menu or anything it will say "menu" its annoying and i dont want my phone to have any sounds except for the ringtone. thanks

Emailing ringtones won't work

For some reason the ####@vzwpix.com won't work anymore. Anyone know of a work around to get ringtones back on the phone? I've hear bitpim does work and i've heard it does not.

Hi everyone,
Lately I've noticed and become a little aggravated by the fact that when I am on a call the touchkeys sense my presence and act as if I actually touch them. Is there a way to disable them while on a call and not just lower the sensitivity? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

I broke down and ordered the extra life battery. I sure hope it works better then the reg. one. I have tried every suggestion on here for battery life and nothing works. I even had a new phone sent to me and the same thing.

Bluetooth and Display?

1) First off, is there a way to turn off the display when I'm talking on the phone. I've only used it once, but when i was talking on the phone the display never turned off, and I could just sense the battery draining because of that...

2) I try to connect my phone to my iMac to get songs off of it through Bluetooth, but I cant send songs to it. Is it possible to do this? I can send stuff from the phone to the computer though (such as phone number, since that's all I have on my phone right now). But I can't seem to transfer anything to my phone. The computer says something like "The device you're sending it to says it doesn't take this kind of file." It appears that I am paired up with the computer correctly because I can send stuff ...

Scratches galore..

Well I've had this phone for a little over a month now, and it has a ton of noticeable scratches on it. I even bought the protective case for it the day after I got the phone, but somehow scratches keep popping up on this thing. Whenever the screen's on the scratches almost look like little rainbow trails on my screen. Has anyone ever used products like displex on their screen, or any other methods to remove these scratches. Thanks in advance.

BestSkinsEver or The InvisibleShield?

Which do you think I should buy for my Chocolate? I was going to go with BestSkinsEver already make skin for my Chocolate, which is clear -- otherwise I'd have to have one custom made on The InvisibleShield for my dimensions.

how to keep security lock feature always on...

Hello, I've been fooling around with this thing for a while and I see how you can lock the phone by going to phone settings >> security >> lock.. etc., but thats only a 1 time deal. I'm wondering if it's possible to set it to lock everytime it's closed, basically so that if I want the phone to be locked so someone can't just come around and pick it up and use it, do I have to lock it manually every time?
