    I have the exact same problem, it started out awhile back as an intermittent problem that I blamed on the network being down, and that being the reason it wouldn't ring.  Then when it was happening today, after like an hour of dealing with it, I decided to push the speaker phone button and....bam.  This sucks.  I went by alltel, and I have insurance so I'm just gonna get it replaced.  Also, this P.O.S. randomly turns off, the charge of its battery is extremely inconsistent, and the qwerty keyboard really only works like half the time.  I'm trying to figure out a way to talk alltel into replacing it with the new version of the scoop, or a completely different phone, or something.

Go to this link and download the drivers. Plug in your phone and when it asks about a driver click install from a specific location. Once the driver is installed, open Bitpim and click auto-detect phone. Then go to View -> Filesystem. Go to the filesystem and there is your access!

SOURCE: my Alltel LG scoop wont turn on/work unless i have

yes time to get a new battery....the phone is from 2008 i assume but i guess with the particular problem in mind the possible solution cud be the battery or...
in phones there are fuses that protect the entire device from cases of overloading currents... at the least i have seen two fuses one for protection between the battery connection and the phone the other between the charger and the phone...
my assumption would be either ur battery is dead like u think it is or that the fuse between the battery and the phone is blown in which case it would have to be sent to a service center or u d have to learn to flex ur soldering muscles, read schematics and bit more such techie stuff...

LG prada. Person on the other side cannot hear me.

A problem that often occurs with the phone speakers is that you cannot hear anything unless you use the headset that came with the phone. This happens when moisture, such as sweat from your ears or hands, reaches the contacts of the phone's speakers. This can corrode the contacts of the speakers and prevent them from working. The contacts can also come loose, which will cause problems with the phone speakers.

G-d bless you

When i try to dial out there i hear no ringing unless im on speaker phone then the phone works fine..also when people call me it rings but when i pick up i cant hear anyone unless im on speaker

One of 2 things.. either your main speaker is shot, or your phone needs programming. The new LG's often need further programming to be completed at your local service branch. Takes 5 minutes max.

My BRAND NEW LG Scoop won't allow incoming calls!

That happened to my mom's phone too
we both have LG scoops/rumors and that are simply ridiuculous and peices of ****.
I'm not even kidding when I say I've been through at least 7 scoops in the past year.

What you can do is take it to an alltel store and they can replace it for you, but I would REALLY recommend getting a new phone.
Unfortunately, I'm stuck with my alltel contract to have an LG scoop for another year and it's horrible. My current phone that I just got about 2 weeks ago already stopped working. Get out while you can.

No Stereo from Scoop

It is NOT stereo bluetooth compatible (A2DP)

You would need an adapter made specifically do come from an LG headphone port to plug into a radio.

The reason being because the Scoop's port has more contact points than a standard stereo port because it also uses the microphone on the same wire. The adapter you have is not compatible if you are only hearing one audio channel (left - right).

Hope this helps,
