Default New Lg Connect. A few questions.

Hi. I'm new to this website. I bought the LG Connect yesterday and already have a few questions. Possibly dumb questions that have been answered on this forum already. Please forgive me. I am usually very good with electronics.
First, I can't hear the ringtone for my calendar events. I know how to change the ringtone for other things but I can't figure out how to change this. I know this must be a simple question. But I dont know how to do it.
Second, does everyone's battery die so fast? Within about four hours? Did I make a mistake buying a phone that can't last a day?

Thanks so much.

did you go into your calander app, go to settings, go to reminder settings and select a ringtone? maybe setting alerts and notifications to alert. you may not have to set it to alert. i dont know as i've never actually used the calender for anything.

you battery going dead in just 4 hours shouldnt happen even with the stock battery. what are you doing on your phone?

When you open the calendar app you can press the phone's menu key to bring up the settings. Choose the ringtone there.

The battery does suck but four hours?. You must have a really bad battery or you're just running hella shiet at once. Download a data toggle from the market and turn off your data when not in use. It will double your battery life. There's tons more tips to help improve it around this forum if you look. Good luck.

WELCOME TO AF LYRIC 5665 I could answer question #2 battery is not so good if your not rooted and planning on staying stock I recommend you get powermax it a really good app to turn of your data completely your battery will last the whole day, if your going to root root your phone you will be able to disable alot of apps from running in your background, I recommend you to first read before you do anything to your device. Let us know if you need help on anything were here to help

I use Rom toolbox and gemini app manager what you could do from Rom toolbox is go to auto start manager and disable your maps so it won't run in the background thats one of the main ones but you could choose any app you want to disable from auto start

Here's gemini app manager it kill apps also in the background
