Question >.< Help me out plz >.<

Hello guys i dont rly know to explain my problem but i will try my best
1 year ago i buyed a Lg Gw620 but the problem is that i can`t connect the google acount so i cant download apk....(can't establish a reliable data connection to the server)..so what i tryed to do is using an usb cable to download the apk from pc to the phone(i downloaded google play app) ..but after i put the apk instaler on the phone i cant rly see any files from the sd card ( i can see my photos and music but nothing more ) so if i download something on the phone i can`t find it anywhere. So my question is this is there a problem with the phone or something if not how can i find the file on the phone (dont say to dowload some file manager or something like that caz i cant find it on the phone xD ) is there any way to instal the apps directly from my pc in to the phone via usb cable? Help me out is pissing to have a good phone that can be used only for calls.

welcome to the forums!!!!!!!

what happens when you try to sync with your google account?

and with the apk file you will need a file manager. there is no way around it unfortunately.

hmmmm try this trick:
Android: Can’t establish a reliable data connection to the server | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial

now you will be doing a factory reset so make sure everything is backed up if you can. do not worry about things on your sd card. it only resets data on your phone.

if your contacts are linked to google then you should be fine. if not then i'm not sure how you can do it. you can probably go into your gmail account and add your contacts there. then when you sign back in, they will sync to the phone automatically.

Yes, you should be safe saving contacts to SIM. I believe a SIM can hold a maximum of 200 contacts. AFAIK SIM is not affected by a Factory reset (Mine never has been).

Signing into google seems to work better over WiFi. Use WiFi if you can, it's most likely faster, definitely more reliable and you don't use your data allowance, saving it for when you can't get WiFi.
