Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Haunted Phone! I can have 5 bars, fully charged battery, ringer tunred on, vibrate turned on, and yet I get no incoming calls. An hour later I'll get the 'voicemail' alert! Just a few days ago I had clients trying to reach me but no ring/vibrate/NOTHING. I finally called one client back and she said she'd left a couple of VM's for me. I checked phone - no VM - checked incoming calls - NADA - two hours later I got the VM ping and found eight voicemails! Then a couple of times the entire phone froze and I had to remove/replace the battery to jump start it. Never dropped it, never got it wet - only 2 months old.

    Thanks! I live in Virginia (Nation's capital) where cell phone service is the worst in the country! Go figure. I'll take it into a dealer this week and see if I need a new phone!

Well i can say I have had this issue before myself alot of the time it was due to interferance, lots of metal and steel in the way I had calls come in VM 4 days later make sure your always close to a window if there is lots of metal or tin around.

other then that I would contact your local dealer and tell them of the issue and see if there is something that can be fixed on the unit or if it is just a flaw of the phone itself and if possible upgrade or downgrade of the phone to one that will work correctly in your enviroment.

My iphne 3 will only vibrate but not ring


If you're missing incoming phone calls due to your iPhone not ringing, you may have accidentally switched the ringer to vibrate or silent, according to Apple. The switch on the left side of the iPhone turns off the ringer and usually sets your phone to vibrate mode, but if your iPhone's vibrate setting is also disabled the phone will instead be set to silent mode. When in the phone's sound settings vibrate mode can be enabled, and the ringer volume of your phone is adjustable.

The ringer is gone bad. Go to service center and just ask them to change the ringer. It will cost less than 100 rupees.
Make sure the phone profile is not in silent or in vibration only...

VIBRATE STAYS ON


Follow the below instructions and you can remove the vibrate state. I have included a link to download the phone's manual as a PDF file.

Sound Settings
Ringer Types
Ringer types help you identify incoming calls and messages.
You can assign ringer types to individual Contacts entries,
types of calls, and types of messages.
Downloaded Ringers can be downloaded right to your
phone.
Preprogrammed Ringers include a variety of standard
ringer types and familiar music.
Vibrating Ringer alerts you to calls or messages without
disturbing others.
Selecting Ringer Types for Voice Calls
Your phone provides a variety of ringer options that allow you
to customize your ring and volume settings. These options
allow you to identify incoming calls by the ring.
To select a ringer type for voice calls:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Sounds > Ringer Type >
Voice Calls.
2. Select With Caller ID or No Caller ID.

Phone won't ring or vibrate and keys click and beep when pressed


I brought my phone in to my service provider and they removed the battery and sim card (because I was unable to turn of my phone with the power button) and rebooted the phone. It's all good now.

How do I increase my ring tone volume on my Moto Razor .?


You can set the length of your incoming ring to in the Call forwarding portion of the phone. Usually, it is set to 25 seconds. It can go as high as 30 seconds. To set the ringer to be longer or shorter, it goes by 5,10,15,... set of 5 increments. up to 30.
I would also recommend to use a factory set ringtone, set the profile to LOUD or OUTDOORS. With vibrate option on. Some downloaded ringtones don't play as loud.

Battery problems


You need to replace your battery.  When you do follow these steps to preserve battery life.
1.  Fully charge battery for 24 hours 2.  Make sure that you use the phone without charging it until the phone tells you the battery is low. 3. Fully charge the battery until it reaches full again.
The reason your battery is failing to hold a charge is a problem call battery memory.  The less power that you use off the battery the less capacity the battery has.
