Has anyone been having problems with the new update? From apps disappearing to the touch screen not functioning, I'm currently tired of the optimus I once loved. I've had it o and seems like it should be kver a year now and have had no mentionable issues until just recently. The screen double taps, making typing, browsing, game play, and even dialing frustrating and sometimes nearly impossible. Dropped calls, lost messages, failed notifications.....I almost can't deal with it anymore. It looks nice and SEEMS like it should be great, but so does an apple until you find the hole the worm crawled thru and munched on the core. I've contacted sprint and emailed LG but nothing has come of it so far. I love this phone and am more than happy to keep... (continues)
mobile hotspot issue solved download tether widget
I picked up the optimus s yesterday and I kept getting the network error as well when trying to enable hotspot. Come to find out all you need to do is download a wifi tether widget to turn it on and then it will activate it. The widget I downloaded is called share switcher. Sprint will not charge $30 for the mobile hotspot since that only applies to 4G phones.... awsome phone!
Bought two of these phones and both are having SD card issues. Exchanged one of the two and it does the same thing.
All 3 say "preparing SD card" several times a day (at least). I tried a 2gb sandisk sd card instead of the samsung 2gb card that comes with it - same thing. Apps installed to the sd card disappear from the apps menu then mysteriously reappear. Also shortcuts on the main screen change to a default icon then may change back when they feel like it.
Also getting spontaneous reboots - not sure if this is related to the sd card issue.
Will likely return these before the 30 day period is over. ☹️
Thanks for your review Philip. I'd like to ask you and anyone else if you think this would be a good replacement for an original sph m800 Instinct? I primarily use it for email (gmail, yahoo, hotmail, outlook calendar), visual voicemail, live search, weather, browsing, sprint NAV occasionally, TV occasionally, music and camera occasionally. However, I like having 2 batteries. I want to upgrade but can't justify $10/mo for an evo or epic w/o 4g service. Would this work and be better than the Transform? Thanks
