Pocket Dialing

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

A couple months ago I posted about my new LG enV2 cell phone. After living with this phone for a while I had actually grown to really dislike it. Up until about a year ago I limited myself to flip phones to protect the screen and buttons. Technically speaking the env2 is a flip phone, but this one has buttons on the outside and can be used as if it weren't. As a result, I would end up pocket dialing everyone. I even sent a few pocket txt messages.

A couple of days ago Rachelle found online that there was a firmware update released for this phone (version vx910v06) that addressed the pitiful key lock. With the original firmware there was only a choice of no key lock or a one-step lock. This required you to only hit the OK button to unlock the keypad. This didn't work so well. With the new version they added a two-step lock which requires you to hit OK and then the CLR button. Since these buttons are basically next to each other this is still a failure, but it is more effective than the one one-step. I wish they would let you pick which keys to use; maybe I'll suggest that to LG (over and over again).

That's funny because I have the same blackberry too (8703e) and I've never pocket-dialed that one. And I don't even lock the keypad. Weird...

Joe...where is the link to the VX910V6 firmware? I'm tired of pocket dialing or having music just start playing from my pocket.

You have to go to a Verizon store (or whatever carrier you use) and have them upgrade the phone. It takes like 30 minutes...
