    My key pad does not work either! The buttons on the side (volume and camera button) do not work as well. Have you found anything out yet?

Ok. heres what i did, if you keep pressing a button (any button) on the QWERTY keyboard it may.. FOR A FEW SECONDS work.
if you simply wait enough time, then the keypad will work.
you must have patience, and press the buttons slowly, but after awhile it willl work (:

start using the T9 word more because the phone apparently gets to hot and over used on the QWERTY keyboard, as you learn to text very fast.
therefore making it slower.
almost like when you type too fast for word to catch up.
if you use T9 more then QWERTY keyboard will work better, i promise!
(: hope this helped!!

All the buttons on my LG RUMOR 2 wont work except the end button

Possible there is damage to the pad or the base board. Unless this is opened and cleaned the board damage cannot be confirmed. Also use a hair dryer to warm off any moisture that can cause this malfunction

Hello there,

You can use the bluetooth functionality of your phone. This will work if your computer is bluetooth capable. If you have the USB cable that came with the phone, you can use it as well. Let your phone work as a Mass Storage device once it prompts and then from there, you should be able to transfer on your memory card to the computer.

Good luck!
