LG redesigns Verizon Chocolate phone with VX8550
The LG Chocolate VX8500 will see its upgrade in the face of the VX8550, which will change some of the things the users didn’t like in the original version. Still all-black (in the beginning) slider, it will have the call/end key moved to the bottom slider and a lock switch on the side. As it can be seen from the images, the D-pad will be in contrasting silver and the rumors say that it will be used in different way. We guess if this is true, it will be similar to an iPod wheel. The new Chocolate will have a 3.5mm jack, so you can plug standard headphones directly.

There is no official information about this Chocolate, but as there already are leaked press photos and the FCC approved it, we may see the VX8550 hitting the shelves soon.

I'm getting ready to get my 8th. YES!! THAT IS AN 8! phone since December because they just suddenly QUIT working. blank screen. Can't make or receive calls. That is 8 phones in 8 months and Verizon WILL NOT let me get a different phone. I'm contacting a lawyer.

I bought the phone at the end of July and had to return it for a new one mid August and Now I have to return it again!!!! The screen won't come on or anything; And putting music on it is like a battle!!

I have had my mint chocolate for around 5 or 6 months. I noticed shortly after I got it, that it had a few glitches. If the phone died or I turned it off, I went through hell trying to get it to power back on. I am sometimes able to remove the battery and get it to restart pretty easily, but it is getting to the point now where that doesn't even work. Yesterday I had my phone setting on the drsser and realized it had frozen. I took the battery out and attempted to restart it like usual. This time the screen scrambled and then went white. Now, there is nothing. I can't get it to turn back on. I even tried leaving the battery out of the phone overnight to see if that would help but it didn't. I really love all of the features about this phone, but I am very dissapointed in this problem it continually has. I didn't pay that much money to have to spend my time dealing with a problem that shouldn't exist. This is not a small glitch that can be dealt with if you need to. This is a major problem that rather irritates me. Wish me luck, I am changing colors... Maybe in this case green isn't lucky, but unlucky. I have read about this exact problem from other owners, so if they think they are gonna tell me it's an operator problem, I may flip my lid.

I have experienced the same exact problem with my mint green phone now I just don't know what to do I am pissed because there should not be any reason for this to be happening I wonder if there is any way for this to be fixed though
