    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    I've been reading a lot about this update and opinions have been conflicting, personally i have no problems or complaints about my DARE, so i'll leave well enough alone and not fix what ain't broken.

    My attitude is kind of " wait and see " and nothing has convince me to run out and get this update... yet.

    I sent it to LG... I'll have to look for verizon's appropriate place to send it to... seems the forums sometimes are the best place and they are monitored closer than their own website sometimes!

    Edited... I sent it to Verizon.. It took 4 sends since they have a 2000 character max! LOL!

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    Thanks for your reviews and tips on the dare aepple. I have the orange LG env and was contemplating getting the titanium voyager as I do text message A LOT, average between 2500-3000 texts a month.

    Kind of concerned about the texting on the Dare. I bought it online two days ago but am having second thoughts on wether I should have gotten the Voyager. Im keeping my fingers crossed as most of the reviews (but not all) have said like you, just give it time and you will adapt to it.

    Guess I will see how it goes and just try and be patient with it when I get it on monday. I guess I will just have to type a little slower.

    Again thanks for your input and tips, most of the alerts or tips you mentioned I copied/pasted so I can try them out, see if I can save some time.

    Also I bought The Jabra BT530 based on your review.

    Mike

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    I have never used a real key keyboard to type on a phone... but the Word function words extremely well... if you ever do have to go to "Abc" to force a word, it remembers it for next time. It also remembers all the words in your contacts library. I rarely have to use anything except the "word" function for texting.

    When you turn the phone "sideways" while texting, it turns into a full keyboard.

    You should go try one out at the verizon store see how you like it.

    I'm glad I have all the power of the bigger ones, plus better camera's and many better features, etc along with the small size to slip it in my pocket unnoticed.

    Talk to the geeks at the Verizon store.. tell them your situation and see what they say... but if you do allot of texting while driving.. I would think the Dare would be better.. but like I say, I've never used the other ones, but I would think that one hand operation would be at best difficult and inaccurate.

    First let me say... the only real good thing you should be doing while driving... IS DRIVING...lol... seriously

    I now use the BlueAnt V1, but the the Jabra BT530 is a excellent choice for money.

    There is no doubt, the touch screen is an adjustment, i only had my Voyager for a few weeks and then gave it to my daughter because i purchase my DARE. I can't compare texting on the DARE and texting on the Voyager because i never really got a chance to text on my Voyager. Texting on a touch screen in the vertical or landscape position takes some getting use to. Even after a few weeks don't get frustrated with the DARE, give yourself time, the DARE becomes more fun to use as your experience enhances through practice and mistakes.

    I've had my DARE since June and it has become as simple to use as sneakers, you put them on and walk, i turn my DARE on and just use it.

    Now the DARE is not perfect, it is what it is, and i don't try to make the DARE more than what it is. I'm looking forward to the upcoming phones from √erizon, good luck with your DARE

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    is there a specific case you recommend for the dare??

    I bought the verizon one. heard from a friend who has the samsung glide (not a good phone at all btw) that they told him to keep it in a pouch because if you scratch or mess up the screen you ae basically hosed

    I picked up the rubberized plastic case and have been pretty happy with it.

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    I just thought of another nice feature to add......

    The dare makes a little sound and vibrates when you hit the keypad "or any part of the screen for that matter" - while texting, (if you have that feature turned on) It would be nice to only vibrate and beep when a successful button was hit.

    Too many times I"m texting along just to look up at the text screen and see that I'm not hitting the button dead on and all the letters are not making it and the word is thus *****ing wrong. Thats deceptive since I do feel the vibration as well as hear the sound.


    Is there a way while in text mode to disable the vibration and sound except when a letter is successfully hit???... that would be a great feature to add if possible.

    This would lessen the likelihood of having to go "undo" text and so making the whole process more accurate and easier.
