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.

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.

Ringer rings continously without pausing when receiving an incoming call


My phone no longer does the rhythmic vibration for incoming calls. I used to have it set up to vibration type 2 (where it vibrates in a certain pattern). However, as of last night, any incoming call just vibrates regularly instead of in a pattern. I checked to make sure that the setting was not changed, and everything looked ok. Is there a registry edit I can do to change this? I would rather not hard reset my phone, but I will have to do that if there's no other way. Thanks

Droid X phone won't ring for incoming calls.


Found on Motorola Support:

1. Make sure that the "Smart Profile: Face Down" feature is enabled.
2. Hold the phone face up in your palm.
3. Call your Droid X from another phone.
4. As the phone is vibrating, DO NOT ANSWER.
5. Still holding the phone, flip the phone face down as it vibrates.
6. Still holding it face down, hit your volume key to silence the phone.
7. Flip the phone back over so it's face up. You should feel a quick vibrating jolt indicating the ringer is back on.
8. End the call. It shouldn't matter which phone you end the call from, as feeling the jolt is the key.
9. Leave phone face up and call yourself again. If the ringer is now working again, turn OFF "Smart Profile: Face Down" until there's a true fix.
10. If it does not work initially, try all of the steps again a few more times and hope you get lucky.

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.
