I literally just activated my Optimus V yesterday with Virgin Mobile and haven't even used it for 24 hours yet. I've been doing some research and I don't understand any of the lingo like rooting, and I don't really think I need to. I just want a functioning smartphone.
Anyways. My phone died last night, plug it into the charger, blinking LG logo screen, pull the battery a thousand times and nothing happened. I found how to do the emergency mode so I did that but got a message saying "download in progress, do not remove cable" Has anyone else had that and does it eventually do something?
Please do not recommend the home, volume up (or down I tried both) and power button because that does not work and I tried it multiple times and nothing would show up on the screen.
I've tried charging it on my USB cable, the charger that came with the phone, and my old blackberry charger because it's the same. I really don't know what to do at this point, it's annoying, frustrating and I just want my phone to work.
If need be, I'll just buy another whole new phone but I need to know before I do that if it's the battery or the phone because I'd much prefer to replace a battery for $10 than a $100 new phone.
Thanks so much and I hope someone much more tech-savy than me can figure this out
