Personal Experience with the LG VX8100
The first noticeable problem is the poor battery duration. A new battery and an upgrade to the firmware fixed that. My friend Jay confirmed this past weekend with his phone that it is most likely a firmware problem. He already tried replacing his battery with no success. New firmware is the way to go.
Currently the latest firmware is version 04. Take your phone to a Verizon store and request for them to upgrade your firmware. It’s free and takes about 15 minutes.
Some links on cell phone coverage.
A short while after I got my phone I found a handful of links regarding cell coverage. Some of them are generic coverage maps from the carriers, others are cool tools from 3rd parties.
- Cell Phone Tower Search (from digg.com) – Uses Google Maps to plot out cell towers.
- Verizon Coverage Locator= – “This tool identifies where Verizon Wireless offers service.”
- T-Mobile Coverage Areas (from 37signals.com)
- Cingular Coverage Area
Hopefully that’ll help anyone out there with making decisions on which carrier to pick.
