    Re: wat up got lil problem

    Hi lilsilent5150,

    I haven't heard of many charging problems. The few that I have heard about were due to faulty batteries. Since you've already tried a different battery and charger, it sounds like the phone, itself, is defective or damaged.

    Unless you can live without a cell phone until March, you'll need to replace it.

    Best regards, WiredNot

    Hi lilsilent5150,

    LG stopped manufacturing the black Voyager last year when they replaced it with the Voyager Titanium model. Since it hasn't been available for a long time, the best you will get is a refurbished one. And since you've been having problems, I would not recommend that you go that route.

    If you reconsider the Voyager Titanium you should know that you can then get one of the black skins or shells for it (both are available from third parties). You'll find the skins and shells pretty cheap on eBay.

    As for the Samsung Omnia, it doesn't sound like Verizon is willing to give you a good deal on it---$200 is way too much to me. If you can get out of your current Verizon contract and you are determined to get an Omnia, then you might want to consider www.wirefly.com. They'll sell you a new Omnia for just $50 if you open a new 2-year Verizon account. But you'll have to get out of your existing contract first or you'll be paying for two contracts at the same time.

    Best regards, WiredNot

    yeah i might have to go with the titanium cuz charging my fone is really getting hard on me and ill jst get the skin
    if i get out of my contract i would have to pay a lot of $$ for it
    so its not really worth it for me to do that soo ill jst go with titanium for now and jst wait for my upgrade and see what heppens then
    i jst found out the omnia they got is only 5mgp i member seing one with 8 or 7mgp
