After paying $200 dollars for this LG phone I find there is only a quick start manual included. I have a two year contract and want you to send me a real user manual. I can not download that much information on my computer. Please don't make me sorry I picked your phone. Sincerely, Carole Curtis Dwyer

Re: After paying $200 dollars for this LG phone I find...
Thank you for visiting FixYa!
First, FixYa is not your cellular service provider and you did not purchase your phone from us.
Second, I've been able to find a link to the phone's owner's manual. It's in PDF form and you can view it on the internet.
It may take a minute to load on your screen so be patient. If you need a PDF reader you can download one for free here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

if you wish to pay your network provider monthly via you bank go into your local retail store preferably the one where you got your sim and ask them to put you on a monthly contract but its a 12 month contract .
suggest you use a non contract service like freedom pop. or get yourself a version phone at wall-mart that is not on a contract. for about 50 dollars or less. look I was once under a contract for 2 years and I learn my lesson never again.
NEVER EVER DO A CONTRACT ON A CELL PHONE.
also you can FORWARD YOUR CALLS TO ANOTHER PHONE if you like. Their are so may ways to do this.
Also you might check out GOOGLE VOICE. It is free. You can forward your calls and Block calls too. Many features and it is free.
Also FREEDOM POP is a new service and I have been using it for nearly a year.
Why you should never sign another carrier contract
Walking into a Verizon store to buy a new phone may seem like a pretty normal thing to do here in the US, but in other countries that's not the case. An easy way to look at the carrier situation is with the example of roads and cars. When you buy a new car from a dealership they don't also get to decide what roads you can drive it on. You buy the car and decide to drive wherever you want.
US carriers sell you a phone that can only work on their network. They essentially lock the car down to certain roads. In many other countries you simply buy a phone and then decide what carrier to use with it. These are called "unlocked" phones. In the US it isn't as easy because carriers like Verizon and Sprint don't support many unlocked devices. Still, there is a way to take some control away from your carriers: buy phones without signing a contract. Here's why you should do it.
When you sign a contract from a carrier you are locking yourself to that network and device for 2 years (or however long the contract is). Up front that may not seem like a big deal, but down the road you may regret it. If you want to get a new phone or switch carriers there are pricey fees that you will have to pay. Several carriers have started promotions where they pay the ETF from your old carrier, but this is just another ploy to get you to sign their contract. Don't do it.
If you can buy an unlocked phone you get even more freedom. When you travel to another country you can easily swap in a different SIM card and be good to go. You'll also be able to switch to a new carrier here in the US whenever you would like, assuming they support SIM cards. Unlocked devices offer a new level of freedom and choice.
Cheaper Monthly Bill
The biggest reason that signing contracts with phones has become so popular is the price of devices. Most people think that the average smartphone costs around $200. We know that this isn't true. The HTC One M8, for example, costs $600 off-contract. This is the real price of the device. Verizon takes $400 off the price if you sign a contract because they know they will make it back in the long run.
When you buy a subsidized phone you are paying for it every month. It may be cheaper up front, but in the long run you end up paying more. You can avoid this by simply buying the device at full price right from the start. The money you save every month will quickly add up to pay for the full cost of the device. Plus, some carriers even offer special plans for people who bring their own device.
We already mentioned that you will have more control to switch phones or carriers by not signing a contract, but there is even more you can do. When you sign that contract you are like a lobster in a tank. They've already got you. By not signing a contract they will do a lot more to keep you as a customer. You will have more power in negotiating to get discounts and deals. Just call them up and tell them you're thinking about switching. You'd be surprised what they'll do to keep you.
The moral of the story is very clear. If you want control of your device and service don't sign a contract. Look at the big picture and don't let them hook you in with the cheap initial cost. They want your money more than anything. If the carrier situation in the US is every going to get better we have to stop giving them control. T-Mobile has done a pretty good job at shaking things up, but it's not enough. When you buy your next phone consider buying it off-contract. You'll thank me later.
If you're willing to move from Verizon to another carrier, investigate moving to TMobile. They're offering a promotion where they will move your phone number to their system AND pay thE disconnect fee to get you out of your Verizon contract. They also have some offers including very inexpensive phones.
here is an example of a $0 phone offer.
Of course you must commit to a 2 year contract with TMobile.
I have the same problem with an 11 month old phone. Here are the options I was given. 1) send the phone back for warranty coverage, however if it is determined that ANYTHING, such as moisture, a drop, ststic electricity, etc caused the problem I will be charged $250, and I can not get the old phone back. I live in South Louisiana, a high humidity area. Basically I am now scared to death to file a warranty claim. 2) Use the $5 insurance and pay another $50 to replace the handset with SIMILAR ( not same) refurbished unit. 3) Lucky me I also have the option to upgrade and sign another 2 year contract.
Basically I've decided to ride out the balance of my contract and then I'm Dropping AT&T for everything. Currently I'm bundled for High speed internet, Local and long distance and Cell to the tune of $250 per month. I've had my fill with AT&T and LG.
What you should do is call your service provider and have them send you a new phone. if it is under warrenty, you shouldn't have to pay anything. if not you might as well buy a new phone and recycle the old one. :)
