I was using it one moment. Put it down. Picked it up and it was dead. I have data on the phone that I do not want to lose. I should have backed it up...I know...but the phone, as I said, was amazing. I could not have imagined that it would die on me.
Some notes: The phone would get quite HOT sometimes...and in hindsight, I think the touchscreen response time was lagging or locking up over the last few days... The phone was so FAST -- perhaps it self-imploded?!
I have tried to turn it on/reboot, obviously. Nothing.
I have attempted to charge it...though I know its battery was full when it died. Nothing. The LED will not even turn on when I plug it in.
I took it into to Best Buy (where I bought it) for help -- but because I didn't buy their mafia Protection Plan they would not help me.
I chatted with LG and they said to just send it back, but they would not be able to save my data. They advised me to take it to Sprint to see if they can save the data.
Any thoughts? Anyone hear of this happening to others?
Is there a reset button I could poke at -- though I imagine I would lose the data in this case.
Unfortunately, any kind of reset would erase all data. Wow! That's a beating. I'm sorry to hear that. I actually need to take mine in because the proximity sensor appears to be completely dead. I want to replace it via Best Buys Premier Silver exchange so we'll see if that works or not.

I don't for sure know if it's included with the AT&T version since you guys have a micro SD card slot, but simply download the box app from Google Play and when you register, it should give you 20 GB for free.
I installed box app today and got an instant upgrade to 50GB personal account. pretty sweet deal. Fwiw, I later uninstalled the app because I use solid explorer to access cloud stuff, the upgrade is permanent, install once you're all set.
That's awesome! Glad to hear it.
Could you explain more about this Solid Explorer?
it's a file manager capable of Dropbox, box, skydive & Google drive mgmt. I've Dropbox app installed so I can upload directly from other apps but for other accounts, I just log-in from solid explorer and use its dualpane panel to manage my files on the cloud. it's a paid app but I think a few other free file manager apps also support cloud storage. just do a search on play store.
