Power cycling is a common problem for the rumor. you need to reload the software - do an upate. You'll usually have to go to your provider for that

LG Rumor 2 turning on and off.

First, make sure if this problem appear after you install any APP, if so you can try to brush system to fix it.
Else maybe the following cases:

1, mobile phone motherboard leakage lead the current too large.
2, The inside circuit protection of the lithium battery is too sensitive, so it power off when circuit is large.
3, the battery itself is aging.
4, Battery contacts are dirt-bit, causing bad power supply.
5, The engagement between the battery and the phone is easy to loose bits. (try to remove the back case and press the battery then try to turn on it to see if it also turn off and on). If so, just make a piece of paper to stand the battery up
Of course, don't forget to see if the power button is back to its own place

Phone has been freezing up and now it just says hello on the screen.

This has been happening to the LG Rumor 2 a lot. Even if you took the battery and Micro SD card out then put the battery back in without the Micro SD card and turned it back on, it may still flash Hello. Even rebooting after a few moments with the SD card back in still doesn't help. It's a software problem. You need to take it to wherever you bought it and see if they could reflash the Bios. Don't try talking to customer service at Virgin Mobile, it's a complete waste of time as they will adamantly blame you for it and proceed to give you the runaround. Saying things like they never had this problem before or repeatedly asking if you got it wet and whatnot. Your better off getting another phone, honestly.

My lg rumour is flashing virgin mobile over and froze on me and i have done the whole take out the battery...wait....put it back in.....turn it on and its still any other...

Seems like a lot of people have reported the same problem. Not sure how it helps, but people have reported it getting fixed by restarting the mobile without the SD card in. If it works, put in the SD card later. Please try this. Regardless, do contact Virgin Mobile about the problem.

Hope this helps.

Hi, when a phone randomly freezes, it means that the phones memory is faulty or when an application you downloaded has virus.

What to do is this,

You will have to flash the phone to restore the memory of the phone.

I have an lg rumor 2 and when I was on my phone it froze so i took the battery out and now when i turn it back on the virgin mobile icon/logo flashes every 4 secondes or so. It may be water damage and im...


If you suspect it is water damage, what you have to do is get the appropriate screwdriver, unscrew the phone, carefully detach the case of the phone.

Dry it under the sun or under a 60watt bulb. once it is properly dried, couple it back togther and try to turn it on.

The fault also might be from the flex of the phone. the flex is the mechanism that is between the keypad and the screen. It assist the phone in sliding.

Once it is adjusted or replaced, the phone will be in good condition again.

take care
