USB and software

I got the music essentials kit with the USB but Verizon won't allow me to use BitPim.

Anyone know of a third-party USB that charges the phone while it's plugged in and software works with Verizon?

How do you remove white border from wallpaper

My original Chocolate was able to take a pix and transfer to Wallpaper with no white border, I damaged my OG phone and was sent a new replacement that does not allow me to transfer a pix as wallpaper without white border, tried different resolutions gets worst

VZNavigator on VX8500

I currently have a Samsung 930, which I love, but I am thinking about getting a Strawberry Chocolate. I use the VZNavigator pretty often. On my 930, when I am using the navigator, I can close my phone and it will still give me the directions. However, my husband has the LG 8300, and when we use the navigator on his and close it, it cancels the application. I am wondering how it works on the Chocolate...If I shut the phone, will it still work??

Battery sucks

I had Verizon send me a new phone because the battery was bad so I thought it might be the phone, well the new one sucks too. I have tried every thing to help get more life from it but nothing works. Embarassed

is there a way to keep the external display permanently on/lit?

i want to be able to see if i have 1. missed calls 2. the time/date without having to turn the light on each time...

however, the way it is now is that it turns off automatically after it dims a few seconds...

any suggestions?

Anyone able to put movies on this phone yet? And if so what program did you use and are you able to turn the video sideways so a widescreen video would use up more of the screen if you turned the phone sideways? Thanks for your help in advance.
