  • I don't know anything about that. This is an Env Touch phone forum specifically. The Alias 2 is a totally different phone model designed by a different manufacturer, probably with a different BIOS (underlying simple operating system), so following…
  • I'm sorry you are having so many issues with your Env Touch lately. Without more detailed information to diagnose with, I don't know how to get the DUN hack working for you. If I can provide any specific assistance, please let me know. Always happy…
  • OK, here are some more questions. To diagnose the problem, it is important to state the exact text of the message, which I don't think you have done. Write it down as soon as you see it exactly as it appears on the phone screen. For example, i…
  • It is still working for me with no issues. There are several possibilities - one is that the Verizon server was temporarily down. Keep checking, it may come back up. Did you bring it into a Verizon store for an update? They may have overwritten …
  • Maggot (I feel funny calling someone that ha ha!), If you have unlimited web, (through VCAST or whatever) then you are fine. It doesn't spend phone call minutes, it just spends data. Just ignore the weird white screen. It will come and go whil…
  • Yes, it can read powerpoint, word, pdf, and text files. Pretty broad functionality!

  • There is no question they could "catch" someone using the DUN hack if they wanted to, but it would take a degree of network analysis to identify such accounts. I have just assumed so few people would use it that it wouldn't be worth the cost to Veri…
  • I have not changed my themes, but I would recommend you try to upgrade to the last revision of the Env Touch firmware (see first page of Hacks) and see if that helps. They can upgrade it at any Verizon store if it looks to complicated for you. A…
  • Glad you liked the copy/paste trick, lars! I'm not that old (43), although I am sure many of the whippersnappers using the Touch would beg to differ. But I recall when a phone was this big black celluloid thing with a very loud ring (like a retr…
  • Yeah, that browser, while better than most non-smartphone browsers, is limited in functionality, for sure. First, check if the site has a mobile counterpart by replacing the www. with m. in the url. There is a mobile version of youtube that you ca…
  • I have added a custom name/value pair to my account, "Programmer", with the value "Experienced". I suggest every developer add this precise name/value pair, and just to get started, use the ballpark value terms: Experienced (5+ years or 2+ years c…
  • There's already a simple hack listed here on how to make the phone a flashlight. You basically set the video camera settings so it won't turn off after a minute, and turns on the flash continuously while videotaping. Then, to become a flashlight, …
  • Yes, you would need the data package to hit the internet, and mobile email is a form of internet access; there's no way around it. Verizon can't really tell what's on your phone easily if you do something like this, and they can't easily tell WHA…
  • First, I see no obvious built-in way using your phone only. If you located a webpage or web mechanism that would let you enter an email address and URL, and send the picture located at the URL to the email address, you could click on a picture you…
  • A good description, snakeeater69, thanx! More comments: iPhone also costs a lot more and is not available with Verizon. Verizon has far better service in my area that AT&T. Finally, don't feed the trolls, folks.

  • I think from comments I've read on this forum that the phone actually is wifi capable, but it's not turned on by default.

  • I have read in reviews that the Touch does not play back videos at high resolution well. So I thought I'd experiment a little. If you would like to try duplicating my efforts, record some motion video using your env Touch itself, with the video re…
  • Got this working perfectly! Slightly different menu options and dialogs in Windows XP than Vista, but trivial to figure out. Had to find a good link to a recent version of the LG CDMA modem driver and download it and install it myself though - Windo…
  • Is the maximum microsd memory size the Touch will accept 16 Gig? What are people's experiences with this? I received a 2 Gb card with mine that works just fine, but I'd like as much storage space as possible. If it can handle 32 Gb, that's what I…
  • I got my phone a week ago and I haven't been having any problems with battery life. If your battery performance is bad, call Verizon or take it to your local Verizon store, tell them, and they will replace for you. You can also buy a new officia…
