20 Most Recent LG Flare Cellular Phone Questions & Answers


If you can figure out the solution to this problem please let me know. I have tried everything and this is not the first time it's happened. My phone once sent the same text message to the same recipient over 80 times. And don't count on Virgin Mobile and their joke "trouble tickets". You will NEVER hear from them again about it. And when you call back to get help, you will have to explain the ENTIRE thing over again because apparently their customer service reps don't take adequate notes when you call them. I have had so many problems with texting on this phone it's ridiculous. Most of the time I don't get text messages from people, and then sometimes I'll get them like 4 days later but never all of them. The texts that I send will sometimes take hours or days to reach the recipient... It is a joke and it's a well-known issue that Virgin has with the LG Flare. Seems a bit strange that they would still sell it? From what I've heard the only thing you can do is call them and demand that they send you a replacement phone-- but NOT another LG Flare! Good luck!

This is a well-known issue with Virgin and the LG Flare. Curious as to why they are still selling it. Virgin will drag this out with you for months, telling you to reset the phone and reprogram the phone and all this stuff that is a complete waste of time. The only thing you can do is call them, let them know you are fully aware that this is a known issue, and demand they send you a different model replacement phone! I've had so many problems with texting on this phone and Virgin being no help that I am now switching to a T-Mobile Flexpay plan! It's the same thing as Virgin's service in that there is no credit check, no deposit, and you pay at the beginning of your month of service instead of the end. The difference is it enables you to use all of T-Mobile's regular plans (instead of prepaid which are never as good), and not have to deal with crappy phones and horrible customer service from Virgin! You have to call or go into a store to sign up for Flexpay, but if you search flexpay rate plans on T-Mobile's site you can read all about them! Good luck!

You need to use the volume control on the side of the phone.

You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

Hello,

The problem might be from your phone model. It is possible that your LG is not compatible with your car bluetooth. But most Nokia brands are compatible with car bluetooth.

I don't know how you did the connections, but crosscheck by following the below steps.

Things You'll Need:

* Bluetooth-enabled cell phone or MP3 player
* Bluetooth-enabled car stereo
* Car stereo manual


Power on the Bluetooth on your car stereo and cell phone. The Bluetooth may always be on in your car, but it may be disabled on other devices to conserve battery power.

Open up the menu of your cell phone and have it "discover new devices."

Select your car stereo from the options your device provides.

Enter in the "Pairing Code" for your car stereo into your device. In most cases you will find the pairing code in your car's manual. if you don't know the code try using all )'s.

Try playing a song once your device indicates it is paired with your stereo. If it doesn't work try Steps 2 to 4 again.

Though you may know how to do this, but check if you've not missed any step.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then obviously, your car bluetooth and LG phone are not compatible.

Good luck.

I have called Virgin mobile SO many times for almost 9 months now because of text messaging issues. I don't know if it's the phone or the crappy service (the texts aren't the only problem, to this day I have never been able to access the internet on either of the phones I have had with them). I never receive text messages anymore... On a rare occasion I'll get like 5 text messages back to back that are from days before, and then nothing again. I can never tell if the messages that I receive are actually being sent, but I know a few times people have called me frantically because my phone has sent them the same message sometimes up to 80 TIMES. The customer service reps never have a CLUE what they're talking about and they barely speak english. It is so obvious that they are literally quoting directly from the same **** that is posted on their terrible website. I cannot even bring myself to call them anymore because I am so sick of explaining EVERYTHING over again, only to get the same incredibly insulting line "we have opened an investigation into this issue and are working on fixing it". REALLY? FOR 9 MONTHS??? I am SO angry with Virgin mobile's overall terrible service that I have contacted an attorney and am in the process of taking legal action. I suggest everyone else do the same or get new service because this company is merely sitting back and stealing our money while doing absolutely nothing to improve their service.

Hi this is a very common problem with all flip and slide phones and even laptops and notebooks, the problem is to do with the data ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board in the bottom of the phone.
now inside this ribbon are several single strand copper wires and over time open and closing the phone causes these to break and you then lose the connection with the screen.

as this is such a common fault it makes the part itself cheap to buy and cheap to get fitted. it isnt something you can do your self as you need specialist tools to take the phone apart and to fit the data ribbon.

if you want it repaired the cheapest place would be one of those small independent phone shops as the bigger one will have to send it off and you will be charged extra for this, the smaller phone shop should be able to fix it whilst you wait or the next day at the latest.

its up to you if you think the phone is worth getting fixed then it wont cost much to get done.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Take your phone off of "UnMute". It may seem a little backward at first. When you see MUTE on the screen, it is giving you the opportunity to mute your phone. In other words, you're good. If it says "UNMUTE", you have muted the phone. All the stuff in the previous post is a little over the top.

When it's green that just means that you're phone has service. When it blinks red that means you have a text message, virgin alert, missed call, or sometimes a voicemail message. You can turn of the status indicator light by going to Menu > Settings > Display > Status Light and select "Off".

Sadly, I have the same problem. It's probably just the phone, the way it's manufactured or something, because this is the second LG Flare I've purchased that did exactly what you're describing. The only solution I've come to is to power the phone down and restart it, or remove the battery, wait a few seconds, then put it back in and restart it. Ultimately, though, there is no permanent fix. And don't worry about calling VM, they are absolutely no help.

i have had the same problem. they sent me the same phone and it had the same problem. now im waiting for a different model to be shipped. i hope it works or im done with these ********!

LG Flare... | Answered on Jun 08, 2010


Its probably not the phone, its your carrier network.
The network is what takes the call and what sends it to the phone,
your phone really has nothing to do with it.

Hi,

the life span of a battery depends on the cell of the life.If the battery is a genuine battery, it can last for about a day because the make of the phone you are using.

An LG phone does not normally have very strong battery life, but at least it can last for a day before recharging it.

The battery of the phone you are using i think the battery cell of the phone is weak that is while it dies so quickly, so it need a replacement.

Take care.

LG Flare... | Answered on Mar 15, 2010


Hi

The problem is from your battery, you should get a new battery for your phone and ensure it is in proper contact with the battery terminal.

You should also wipe the battery terminal with cotton wool and a little methylated spirit.

Thank you for visiting fixya
