Default Questions about my LG Connect

Hi, I was wondering if any of you experienced users could help me with a few questions about my LG Connect 4G phone, please:

1. How can I play the (full/real) game of Cityville, Cityville 2, or Cityville Hometown? It won't allow me!

2. How can I keep the 4G on? It drops to either 1G or goes off every so often even when I stay in the same position/location.

3. Can I root my phone without connecting it to a computer? Or is it not possible?

4. I've been using Juice Defender for my crappy battery. I've noticed a lot of LG Connect phones have battery problems. Short of buying a battery, what else can I do?

5. Is anyone else having problems with Rhapsody? It was fine until a few weeks ago. I've done everything the support ppl have told me to (many times), but still have problems.

Thank y'all! Sorry for so many questions. I've had this sucker for almost 4 months, and regret buying it. But ya gotta work with what you have when you're on a budget lol

Answer to Q3: You need a computer to root. I looked everywhere and didn't find hot to root without computer. If you have a PC it should be easy!

Answer to number 4:
If you root your device (or have access to using the LG updater tool via computer) you can update to the zva ROM and that will fix most battery issues i.e. over heating/short battery life. Also if you root it you can remove all the unnecessary Metro apps that are constantly running on out which will also cut down on your battery life. Then you can use juice defender and combo it with a opiton in ROM tool box (root user app) and set it up so your phones battery life will be extremely better and you won't need a bigger battery

What's a good site to root from? I tried the one click root, but it didn't work.
