LG Chocolate Phone

I have a chocolate phone (lg) from verizon wireless, its brand new because my last one was broken i couldnt hear from the earpiece for some reason, anyways this new one that i just got yesturday isnt working. i turned it on and on the screen it shows VERIZON WIRELESS (with that red check mark on top of it, ya kno the logo or w.e it is) anyways it shows that and it blinks every 5-7 seconds same thing over and over. i took out the battery did the master reboot and its still the same. i cant turn it off unless i remove the battery btw if that makes a difference.

    My wife just got that same phone today as a replacement for a phone she spilled diet coke on (ooops). I was playing with it to see what features it has and when I pushed the side button for the camera, it started doing the exact same thing that you describe. I haven't found any other mention of it yet online. It appears that it's running through the boot sequence and errors out. It gets into a loop of attempting to load the OS and failing. I think she's going to just have to bring it in, but I was hoping someone would have a slick suggestion.

Ok, I found something that worked. I read in another post that you can reformat the phone with a certain key stroke while the phone is off. I know in this case you will probably have to take out the battery, reinsert it, then do it before turning on the phone. I also had the phone plugged into the charger. I don't know if it helped or had nothing to do with it. Just thought I'd mention it in case it comes to that. Just hold down the * button, the 3 button, and the ok button. Then turn on the phone. Make sure you're holding all three of the buttons at the same time. I held them for about 5 seconds or so. It booted up normally after that.

Cell phone self-echo


Hmm, I'm not sure... If you can I'd try to go to California and see if you still get the echoes. For me, heading back to the place where I said I would be using my phone more frequently stopped the echoes. Or you might just want to get a Ohio cellphone number... Like I said, I'm not too sure... well Good Luck.
