Loading and playing Music on my new Extravert LG 2.0

Okay here is my problem...I loaded music and pictures onto a 16 gb micro SD card from a pc, put the card into my phone but it does not seem to read the card. Under the "memory usage" for memory card under the settings mode it shows how much space is used and how much is available...but... when you look for music or pics it tells me "No songs available. Add songs to play music". In short, the phone seems to acknowledge the card but will not read it. Would really appreciate Any help on this. Thanx Cool

LG Optimus 4X HD Gets Replacement Battery Recently

Have you felt annoyed when you are using your LG Optimus 4X HD? The standby time and talk time of this LG phone are long. But it consumes battery power quickly when it is used for other purposes, right? The high capacity battery even can not stand moderate use. How do you deal with the problem? I think that getting a spare battery is a good idea.

To rescue the short-lived LG Optimus 4X HD(P880), a replacement BL-53QH battery was released by MPJ recently. The replacement battery hold a 2500mAh capacity in the same size as the original battery, which means that the battery can fit the phone well. According to the company, the battery for Optimus 4X HD adopts the latest battery production technology and is rigorously tested. This batte

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...

LG290C Problem with photo sending

I have an LG290C phone. Recently, it has stopped sending photos. I can take photos and receive them, but whenever I try to send any the screen says "invalid destination address." I have spent hours on the phone with Tracfone and have also contacted LG. No one seems to be able to help. LG suggested I get a new phone, which I have no problem doing (it's about time), but I hate to lose all my photos. Does anyone know how I could retrieve at least some of my photos?

LG Revere features T9 - Any suggestions?

Confused I've had my LG Revere phone for a couple weeks now, and still can't figure out how to save the T9 option as my default for texting. Whenever I text, I have to go through multiple steps just to be able to text in T9. This is very frustrating, as my old Sprint phone simply saved the T9 option when I chose it, and every time I texted, I didn't have to switch to it like I do with the Revere. Does anyone know how to save the T9 format as default for texting????

LG Olympus C

Just got this phone and have run into a problem. ALL my contacts disappeared. I hit the contacts icon and it says no contacts. Yet when I go to the contacts icon and touch it..then go to favorites..hit the menu button and then search...the keyboard comes up..I hit the letter A and then search and the contacts I used to have under the letter A appear I hit the letter B and search and all the old contacts under B appear.

These are the same contacts I had before so I know ALL my contacts are somewhere in this phone. Anyone have any idea where? When I search under J for example every contact I have with a J anywhere in it appears. Once these are do I replace them in my contacts list?

I am really lost. Someone please ...

Assistance needed

I just got My LG CF360 and have 2 questions

1. When I end a call by pushing the end key it hangs up but then I get a message...UNKNOWN ERROR. It seems that when I close the cover down this doesn't happen. Obviously closing the cover works but why does this message appear and can I get rid of it?

2. I want to take pictures of the people on my contacts list and put the pictures with the corresponding names so that when they call their name and picture are displayed. It looks from the material I have read that this is possible but I don't know how to do it. Can someone advise me?
