Question about LG VX8100 Cellular Phone

Open Question

Unable to retrieve catalog. Please try again later (534) -- ERROR Message

I can't seem to access VCast on my LG VX8100. The phone otherwise works ok, but I can't download ring tones, receive a picture text, or download the address book manager which is what I really wanted.

I've called Verizon several times and they instructed me through a series of steps to reset and refresh the phone. Then they directed me to a service center where I left my phone for an afternoon only to find out that they couldn't repair it either. They said that they re-loaded the software and everything. I paged through your problems on this site but didn't see anything like this. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

As far as downloading songs with the internet, yes, VCast is your only choice for Verizon.
However, you are free to sideload your .mp3 formatted files from your computer to your phone via a microSD card, or data cable, no matter where they came from.
If you're going to use a memory card, you'll need to insert it into the phone and format it (its under Menu > Settings > Memory usually). Then make sure that you only load the files into the music folder for them to work.

Lg vx8100

I do not have a suggestion for you, only sympathy. I have been putting mp3s on my phone for about 3 months and there are always a few that seem to be corrupted. They will either not play or more commonly cause my phone to reboot. (even though they work perfecly when burned to cd or played through vlc or winamp) It goes to the telus startup screen and stay there until the phone flashes off and back on. I have tried re-encoding the mp3s with no change in performance. I wonder if anyone knows of a different media player for this phone. Have you called Telus? I know they are a pain to deal with but there may be options. Alternatively I might suggest flashing the firmware and starting fresh.

Lg vx8100 error message on screen: use genuine battery. power off 10 sec cuts off

Not exactly a solution. I tried leaving it off overnight and tried it several times after removing and inserting the batteries. I also cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and a Q tip. It did not fix it. But I just left it off for 2 days meaning to go to the Verizon store and get it fixed or replaced. But I turned it on now and it fixed itself! Model VX8300. Maybe the contact cleaning did it but it had to dry more. You can use a Q Tip dipped in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Mr.Clean. But then rinse it with a water wet Q tip and then dry it with a paper towel. I used contact cleaner.
