I had the same problem with my LG viewty. its so stupid why, you want to kick yourself.
on the perimeter of the screen, you see a tiny gap. in there are the digitizer for the screen. the screen works like a grid, one on the X axis and one on the Y axis. its not a software issue nor a screen. just a design flaw.
get a piece of copier paper. fold it nicely, and use the folded edge, run it in the perimeter of the screen and dig out all the ****, dust, dried sweat out of there. don't dig too deep or use compressed air. just dig it out with the piece of paper. you will see there is a lot of debris lodged in there. once its out, try your phone again and it will work. worked for me. i quickly bought another screen protector and now its my nice backup phone. i bought the sony ericsson X1 because i thought it was totally non usable. i guess not.

you need to recalibrate the proximity sensor. this is what stops you from pushing buttons when you are in a call ect. to do this go to main menu > phone settings > proximity calibration. from here you can recalibrate the screen which should fix the problem
hi, i work in the mobile industry and own a tocco myself. I would say that for looks the tocco is best but the camera can be slightly fuzzed. The viewty has had reports of software problems but im sure these are quite easily fixed. As per the touch screen, the tocco is more sensitive so is easier for texting but it is heat activated so cant be used wearing gloves or with a stylus, the viewty for the touch screen does need slight pressure applied. Widgets are actually available on the viewty as well, can just be a bit tricky to activate them. Obviously the tocco is much slimmer and lighter. All in all though i would say that samsung is a more trusted make, with less promblems occuring. Why not look into th new LG renoir and The samsung Omnia, bit more expensive but im sure they will have just the features and looks your after and the software is more updated. Hope i have helped!!.....J
As far as I know, the Viewty software is only compatible with windows. It also comes on a tiny disc which might get eaten up by your Mac. However, you can tell the Viewty to behave like a USB memory stick, which should work with the majority of OSs out there, including Mac. LG will tell you that their software is great. As a viewty user, I will tell you that their software is awful. It doesn’t offer much more functionality than by using the viewty as a plain ol’ memory stick, and I don’t mind sacrificing that functionality for the sake of usability. The software crashed every single time I tried to use it. One of the features the viewty doesn’t have is an obvious way to delete all text messages. However, all hope is not lost. By clicking what I call the “right click” button (or what you might call “the button in the bottom left with the three horizontal lines on it”), it’ll bring up a list of options. Scroll down to “Mark/Unmark” and it’ll turn your inbox into a list with radio buttons. Check the radio button right at the top of the screen (next to “Inbox”) and then hit the “delete” button down at the bottom. That’s how you can delete all your text messages! The delete key on the viewty is actually a button (surprisingly). At the bottom of the handset you have a green phone icon, a red phone icon, and a central button which looks like a “C”. That central button is the delete button. What looks like the touch-screen delete button is actually a “return to previous” button. This feature seems to be a problem for a lot of people - I know I first got confused the first time I used my viewty and tried to delete text on it. This button on the homescreen of the viewty is the easiest way to access your web browser. The long way is “menu” -> “extras” -> “O2 active” -> home. I’ll cover some of the features of the web browser at a later date. This button on the homescreen of the viewty is the easiest way to access your web browser.

What you need to do is click on the top right corner of your LG Viewty phone which will show all applications running. If you have an 'Unknown' app, click on this.
The problem is that the user guide for the phone is running and you need to click on 'Unknown' and finish the tour or exit.
