Loading and playing Music on my new Extravert LG 2.0

LG VZ ENV3 (slate blue) Navigatio Key Changes?

Hi there...

my 8 year old, or so, phone, let me change the front 'dial' so that I could push up arrow for recent calls, down arrow for vz navigator, etc...

The new ENV3 I just got, has fixed shortcuts on the dial, ones for wallpapers, my music, and others. I have played with different navigation keys/settings, (so I thought they were, on the phone), but they seem to do something different that quick navigation/shortcuts on the front dial, than what I am trying. I have searched manuals, web info, etc.., to no avail.

In summary, I can't change the arrows to the shortcuts I want, so as to be able to push the up arrow on the dial for voice, down arrow for vz navigator, and 2 others using other arrows.

Any way to do this? If so, pl...

Optimus AS680 lock up issue

I recently purchased an AS680 LG Optimus and I couldn't remember my screen lock pattern. Well, after so many tries, the phone asked me to log in with my google account. I tried, but I keep getting denied. I checked my account with google on the desk top computer and everything checks out (passwords are correct, spelling of my name, etc...)

So my questions are:

1. Is there a way to bypass this? Even if it means a factory reset cheat, I'm okay with that. I just want to use the phone I paid for!

2. My service provider isn't in and I cannot get in to have my phone checked out until tomorrow evening. If they do a swap, I'll get a refurb. phone...Which I do not want. I paid for the new one yesterday! Are there any websites tha...
