While I completely disagree with the comment that this phone is not user friendly as it is just as simple and nearly exactly the same setup as every other android OS out on the market, a user guide can be found here.

You can find a complete usual manual from the LG website. This phone is the same as the US 730, LG Venice/Splendor.

Question

Is there a app to signal misses calls or messages

The phone I had before Showtime had a audible beep that sounded every 2 min.

The very best App for this is NoLED found at Google Play. You can setup audible beeps, and/or visual icons that will flash on the screen at the intervals you set. It is an awesome App and fills in where all the phones now a days do not have a Notification LED or Audible Reminders for missed calls and the like.

It's a free App, and I highly recommend taking the time to download a theme from their website and load it on the phone. That will give you Android look and quality icons for the visual reminders.

Hope you enjoy the App..... Me and the wife do! We actually used it on our Galaxy Proclaim phones we first got from ST, and still use it today on other phones.

The stock messaging app does not support multiple reminders. You can download another app, like GoSMS. I know for a fact that GoSMS has multiple reminders as I have mine set up that way.

As for missed call reminders, I really do not know. There should be a missed call notification on the top navbar though.

Question

Auto Back-up?

I can delete photos from the camera file but have been unable to delete photos from the auto back-up folder. Can this be done? I have gone into my Google account and have deleted them from there but they are still on my phone. Also, I am not a heavy user but the battery life on this phone is terrible compared to other phones I have had. Have to constantly charge it throughout the day. Any fixes?

I have the same phone and my battery life is usually 2 days, using text, browser, voice. It sounds like your battery is bad. You can buy replacement batteries online if yours is out of warranty.

PLUG PHONE INTO COMPUTER THEN GO TO MEMORY OF YOUR PHONE AND FIND PHOTOS AND THEN FIND THE ONE YOU WANT TO DELETE

Face Time is an apple thing. There are lots of apps out there like Tango, that work very well for video calls.

Facetime is an Apple product. So you won't be able to use the actual Facetime app.

But yes, you can use skype, whatever apps require a front facing camera as this phone does have one.

You can, but you will need your Verizon account number and may need to contact Verizon for additional information if it is required.

answer 2
Yes you can. Here is how:

1. Call your current provider for your account and pin numbers
2. Buy a $45 service card as this will be required for activation. Can be done at the time of activation also.
3. Call Customer Service or go to straighttalk.com. I find doing this on the web much easier.
4. From the webpage click on Activate/Reactivate > Transfer Number. Put the dot in Transfer number from another carrier.
5. Input the required info, i.e. account and pin numbers. Be sure to use the same contact information you have on file with current carrier.
6. After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a fully working phone in an hour or two.
7. Enjoy your new phone.

Try Amazon.com. They have one for $19. Also this phone is the same as the LG Splendor from US Cellular, so the same battery may work in this phone.

Question

I am confused... If my area requires a CDMA-V to work ... Can't I use this phone?

Why can't I use this phone? Doesn't make sense... They have a few not so good phones for the area and of course the over priced IPhones... I ended up with the Galaxy Contura which is a little on the slow side but does have Android 4.0... There are more expensive droids listed but they have 2.3. Zipcode 15424.

The Centura is also CDMA-V. If you are using the zip code search on the top of this page, do not trust the results that it shows.

If you have Verizon in your area, then this phone WILL work.
