Hi there !!

Wednesday 25th of September 2013 /
Hi there, my name Is JJ and I'm new to this forum. I'm hoping some of you Android savvy people can help me out with a couple of issues. I have an LG Optimus F7 on the Boost network. Love this phone but I'm seeing an issue with the flash. I can manually make the flash work but it will not flash when taking photos whether I have it set to auto or "on". Any ideas?

Optimus f7 issues

Friday 13th of December 2013 /
I've had this phone for about a week. I uninstalled the bloatware from boost (app stubs, boost air, boost app finder and the like) however after a few hours or even days it re-installs it and changes my home screen settings back to default. I downloaded Apex Launcher so that seems to protect most of my home screen settings now but the boost apps change my wall paper. This is very annoying. Is any one else having the same issue? If so how did you over come it? Another issue is the sound. There seems to be no way to adjust the in-call volume when on speaker. Is there an app out there to resolve it or is it a LG software issue?Thanks!

So I purchased a refurbished LG Optimus. I only have one problem with the phone. That is, when making a call the other person I am on the phone with always tells me that I need to speak louder, or that it sounds like I am going through a tunnel. I have tried everything from cleaning out the mic hole, to hard reset. Nothing makes a difference. I have also had someone use my phone while I was on another phone I can def. say I understand why people keep telling me to speak louder. I want to keep this phone and before I have to pay for return shipping I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, with being able to fix it? I have seen other post( Optimus f7 issues ), but none that have been able to fix it. If not I will bite the bullet and send it back with 10 bucks in shipping fees. Plus be ok with a flip phone for a week or so. Thanks for any help.

So, later this week I should have my new phone. Still deciding on the Moto G or Optimus F7, either way I shall be moving on from this phone. I appreciate all the work some of you have contributed. You made me enjoy what the Force was meant and should have been like. Now, on to important issues. I thought about selling my Force, but they aren't going for much used, and mines a bit dinged up from where it was used to begin with when I purchased it. I am willing to donate my phone to the greater cause of this phones development and for those that still have and want this phone to be the best it can be. If you are highly interested, I will send you my phone, free of charge but only if you are serious in the development of ROMs and etc for this phone.Thank you for your time, I was a proud owner of this phone

Google play closes when attempting to access Google Play settings

Saturday 06th of September 2014 /
Hello,Phone is LG Optimus F7. Software for phone is up to date. I am unable to change time manually to try the re-sych as been suggested. This exact issues just started for me a week or so ago. Unless there is a certain order to do many things suggest (and I have tried) I have had NO luck. I have:1) Cleared cache (Google Play, Download Manager, etc) & Restarted the Phone2) Disabled, Re-Enabled Google Play3) Removed & Readded Google Account4) Chatted w/ Google Play and state my account is fine5) Factory Reset the Phone (which I thought would fix it)The kicker is if uninstall the updates (for the original version that came with the phone), I can get to settings under the menu key. As you know with the newer Google Play Store, the Settings is now under the 3 lines at the top.Please HELP - I want to turn auto updates OFF.
