yes there IS an MP3 player! One person posted that if you load an MP3 onto the miniSD card and re-name it as a different file name (forget what the name is) then you can listen to them in the "my sounds" menu. Second, the media player is hidden. You can crack it with the appropriate program, but don't have to if changing the file extention info is correct. Third, phonescoop gets it's ifo from LG, not verizon. If verizon decided to "cripple" a part of the software, don't blame phonescoop.

THERE IS NO MP3 PLAYER!!

Sure you can play 1 mp3 at a time but as soon as you touch a button or shut the phone it quits. Even change the volume on the outside button kills it when it goes back to the sound screen. No FF or RW And you have to select each song at a time. So no player!!

OBVIOUSLY, there IS a MP3 player if there are those outside buttons! If there wasn't an MP3 player, then guess what? The buttons WOULD BE DIFFERENT.... they would be plain arrows or blank instead of media options.

Damn, why is the world slow? LG isn't just putting these button icons here to show off... they are for a purpose. THE MP3 player, OBVIOUSLY works with VZW new program and will show as that is available. Most likely, you'll have to download an application that will open it... like how games, flix, etc is. But THERE IS A MP3 player... you just don't have it as an option yet.

ALso, VZW can't CHANGE phones. They can make programs and stuff that work with it, but manufacturing is MUCH DIFF. than carrier service. VZW just provides ...

LG VX-8000 had outside buttons as well designed for MP3 player, but id didn't have one. I called LG when I had the 8000 and was told that Verizon decided not to enable the feature. Pretty sad!

actually adding MP3s to the 8000 through a data cable and using Bitpim was quite easy and not expensive..i bought a 5 dollar data cable including shipping and i was able to transfer MP3s on to my phone and have them play when you hit the play button on the front of the phone.

Not only that but I have met Lucy several times. My great aunt and she worked together in Atlantic city in their young years and stayed friends later in life. What a potty mouth.

Using a data cable and Bitpim, I loaded full-size MP3 files into a certain directory on the VX8000 using Bitpim. If there are no MP3 files loaded and you press the play button on the outside, the VX8000 display would read "No Tunes!". Once the MP3 files are loaded, the buttons on the outside become fully functional and a little MP3 player displays on the outer display. I don't have a VX8100, but I would imagine this might work on it as well. It's all about getting the MP3 files to the appropriate directory and you need a program like Bitpim to do it. Once Verizon launches the Music on Demand service, the files will probably download to correct directory and bring the "dormant" MP3 player to life. I remember calling LG months ago about t...

The files need to be playable from the mini card...loading them into the sounds folder on the mini card does NOT create the desired effect you described!! loading them onto the phone is useless...available memory is less than 50 mb. so now what?

MP3's as ringtones or for music? If for music, you don't use Bitpim, you just drag and drop them from your desktop to the MY_MP3 folder on your card. You can not put MP3's for the player on the phones memory, you have to have a card. If you mean for ringtones, though, then that is a lot longer explanation.
