Invisible 39th Contact
When replying to a TXT/PIX/FLIX message, click on the Contacts button. Scroll down through your contacts, and you should see a blank contact. Normally this person would show up, and it does when you select it. This has been found to be the 39th contact in the list.

Bluetooth Cuts Off Voice Command And VZ Navigator Prompts
When using the LG Dare (VX9700) with a Bluetooth headset or speakerphone, the first few words of every prompt are cut off. For example in VZ Navigator (GPS) "Turn left at Main Sreet" becomes "t Main Street." While using Voice Commands, "Please say a command" becomes "command." Often times the missing words are replaced with a low subtle static. If you press "clear" (to activate Voice Commands) -> "end" -> "clear," the second voice command prompt is not cut off. Therefore it would appear that there is an issue establishing an audio connection after a period of being idle (the actual Bluetooth link never cuts out). This was last observed with Firmware V05.

Update: This is fixed in V06.
Web Browser Text Boxes do not go into Keyboard Mode
Sometimes the LG Dare Web Browser does not let you open text boxes properly.
