    After a couple hard resets and stuff my girlfriends phone is still losing its scences... Goes blank. Only home pic...

    I updated and reinstalled the OS on my blackberry a few times, wonder if its possible on this or if its a tech nightmare....

    Thanks for any info.

    download and run it from your PC..

    be aware, all data will be wiped and the phone will be like it just came out of the box

    You might want to check out the Verizon LG Vortex forum: LG Vortex - Android Forums . I hope that you can figure out your issue. Good luck.

    EDIT: Disregard the above as the post was moved to the appropriate subforum.
