Question about LG VOYAGER VX10000 Cellular Phone

5 Answers

Hi I just bought a used lg vx10000 that is flashed to cricket. The phone died as soon as they took it off the battery they said but that it just needed a new battery. The outter screen looks a little staticky sometimes but very minor and only when a command is input. I bought a new battery for it but I charged it for a while it said it had 3lines of battery and 30min later it died again! The charger is an aftermarket one that says lg vx8500. Is it the charger or is the phone damaged somehow? Please help! I spent money and need the phone what to do?

    I appreciate that comment but I'd like to see if there is another opinion that seconds that or if someone else could think of another issue it might be before I purchase another charger to try it

  • eslai Jul 22, 2010

    Jul 22, 2010 - Is replacing the charger port expensive/difficult? Also, I was looking online and it said some phones have bugs that drain the battery? What do you do if that is the case? Also, could there be an error in the charging display that told me it was almost full but then it died so soon? If the charger is not working to charge it why did it tell me it had an almost full battery? Is this going to damage the new battery?

  • eslai Jul 22, 2010

    Thank you, what would the phone being faulty mean? The charging port? The charging display of how charged it really is? or something else? Is it possible that it is the charger even though the phone does say it is getting charged and that it has reached 3 lines and then it dies right away?

  • eslai Jul 23, 2010

    Im gonna try these solutions. Especially like the second one. Any other last suggestions. Is the charging port expensive o change if that was it? How long should i charge the new battery?

Hi, the fault is probably from the phone, it's very risky to buy a used phone because you never know the condition of the phone and the reason why it's been sold and that's you are paying the price. From the detailed explanation above, it obvious that the phone is faulty..
Take care

    You probably have a faulty charging port I.C that does not transmit the required amount of voltage needed to charge the battery and this will also in turn affect the battery as time goes on..

Hello,

Firstly, i will not advice you use the after market charger to charge the phone, it might not be compatible, so i advice you use the original lg vx 10000 charger to charge the phone, this will boost the battery charging effectively.

Note, you are not suppose to use the battery until it is 100% full, this will give the battery a longer life span, so next time, always ensure you charge the battery full before you use it.

Notwithstanding, charge the battery to 100% with the original lg vx10000 charger and see the duration it will last you, if it is same thing as before, it means the charging port of your phone is the problem, the charging port will need to be replace.

Take care.

For the battery problem there;s a big chance here that the charger that you're using is really not working fine with your phone, since it will not fully recharge the battery so if you can borrow a charger for this particular model that will be good thing to try.

    There are some bug on this phone about the battery and if you can do a upgrade on the firmware of the phone that will help, and yes using a incorrect charger can cause some damage or problem on your phone so better use a correct charger for it. By the way replacing the charger port is not a easy thing to do it will be better if you ask someone with proper knowledge and equipment to do that for you to avoid further damage on the unit.

Have a lg vx1000s that was verizon flashed to cricket. It has been hooked up through cricket previously, however i spent 12 hours trying to hook it up yesterday, finally got far enough that they took my cc...


Try *22804 it seems to work for verizon phones that are failing on *288 more often than not.

However if your phone was fully flashed you may need to have it reprogrammed since these phones need to be programmed to your number, without this most likely you will only get talk and text.

Im trying to charger my lg voyager on my computer through a usb charger but the screen wont turn on!?


WON'T TURN ON




Hi,when a phone does not come on, it is either the battery of the phone is dead,
might need to be charge or replaced with another battery.

you can use another battery to test if it is the battery the fault.

The other thing to check is if the phone memory is weak and may need to be restored
back the phone memory.
will need to be flashed.
if too weak to power up the phone all application you downloaded on the phone has
VIRUS and has affected the phone memory.


First Charge the battery for longer hours before using another battery to confirm
if the battery cell is the problem.

If not battery, in think you will have to flash the phone memory for it to come back to life.
You can use the link below to know about how to flash the phone.

Take care.

Verizons LG Voyager fully flashed to cricket but internet not wor


If a dealer is knowedgeable enough to claim that an LG Voyager is fully flashed, then he should know that he must activate it on its intended phone #, at the time it is flashed. Otherwise, the web will not work. This is known and common problem with the LG Voyager, and if you are able to fully flash this phone, you're aware of this problem and know how to deal with it.

Sound like this dealer did not do the flashing themselves, and were not properly trained on how to activate and refresh wap settings on a Voyager at the time of sale.

The LG Voyager must already be activated on its intended phone #, at the time the phone is flashed. This is unique to the Voyager. None of the other verizon LG phones have this requirement.

The reason is because the simple act of dialing *228, or manually programming the phone#, erases the WAP settings on this particular LG phone. Specifically, it is the WAP Gateway that is erased, and this can only be fixed by somebody who knows how to flash this phone.

This is the only verizon LG phone that will automatically erase its WAP Gateway when the phone # is programmed into it, by dialing *228.

If your Voyager is working, DO NOT DIAL *228, EVER, Keep in mind, if you call cricket for any type of billing/tech support on your account, they will tell you that you must dial *228. DO NOT DIAL *228, if you have an LG Voyager. *228 is similar to restarting your computer. It's good advice, but is usually not required.

If you are going to pay somebody to fully-flash your phone, that person should offer, even require, that they transfer service to your phone for you, at the time it is flashed. The only way to know for sure your phone was properly flashed, is to test out the web and picture messaging features, when your phone is done being flashed. I *always* test out the web browser, and incoming/outgoing picture messaging, before I consider a customer's phone to be ready.

There's is no 24hr waiting period for web/picture messaging. Basically, if it works for voice/text, there is nothing to keep web/pix from working immediately. A dealer or experiened flasher has the tools/resources to make sure the customer's account has the proper features for web/pix to work.

My last piece of advice, is that you do not have to be paying for web, in order to use the web browser on a fully-flashed cricket phone. That is right, cricket offers free web-portal access to Cricket's homepage, which doesn't include much, but does give me a page or two to load, to make sure the phone is working correctly. If you have picture messaging, you should be able to visit this page, even if you don't have web on your account: http://wap.cricket.motricity.com, and http://search.wap.mycricket.com.

There is an easy way to test if your Voyager has simply erased its wap gateway. If you can send and receive picture messages, but just cannot use the browser, then your phone is flashed properly, but needs to have its wap gateway settings refreshed. You can verify this by visiting http://www.accuweather.com, because if picture messaging works, accuweather.com will load in the browser as well. This is because accuweather.com is unique, it's the *only* website that will work on a cricket phone, without going through Cricket's wap gateway.

Well, hope this help and is not too much information. I will say, though, everything I've written is 100% accurate. I have been doing "full flashes" on Cricket phones for almost 3 years, before most people even knew you could do basic flashes. The best resource on the internet for learning about the capabilities of flashed Cricket phones is at howardforums.com, in the Cricket subforum, located here: http://www.howardforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=336

PS - I cannot wait for the day when my answer is proven wrong, which can only happen when somebody figures out how to flash the Voyager so that *228 is safe, and no longer erases the wap gateway. Tougher problems have been solved, maybe someday this one will be solved too. Until that happens, DO NOT DIAL *228 IF YOUR VOYAGER IS WORKING!!! can't say that enough....
