    I have the LG Chocolate VX8560 piece and over a period of 2 months, I have had the freezing problem 4 times already and my phone has been replaced twice. The FM transmitter sucks, the blue tooth sucks even worse. I'M STUCK BECAUSE OF THE CONTRACT. I hate this phone.

    I think there is a problem with LG because i have had 3 LG's and they all freeze! yesterday in the middle of a text message my phone just started freezing and now i can't send a text and my calls are dropping!

    I can't take pictures either. when I hit the camera button, the "please wait" screen comes up and just stays there. I have to pull the battery just to get it off. then startup takes about 10 minutes. This seems like a similiar yet different problem....anyone else???

  • amanda1129 Mar 09, 2009

    I was about to place a phone call when the screen went to the initial Verizon logo screen that you see on start up. Now that's all I see. The screen just keeps flashing the Verizon logo. I can't turn the phone off. I tried taking the battery out and it doesn't help. That image is frozen on my screen inside and out. There is no tone when the buttons are pushed either.

Screen is messed up.

I had a similiar problem and i took the battery out and my sim card and left them out for a few hours then i tried putting them back and mine seemed fine, did you try charging it? I would give verizon or watever service you have a call and if they dont pick up bring it down, they may be able to help. I would replace it.

Freezing and rebooting

Go to your local service provider store and show them the problem. It is probably covered by warranty.
