    I just got my LG Ally this past week, and I love it, but the thing is a power sucker. On my old phone (basic, no internet/data) I could go all week without charging it, this thing needs charging every other day!
    END RANT

    But that is aside the point. My problem is the phone won't stay turned off when I charge it. I plug it in, hold down the end call button, and shut it off. Then it turns right back on! Anyone know how to fix this?

    Psh..Im asking the same thing!
    Its a smart phone. Which means its running a bunch of processes and doing alot more things then a regular phone, therefore the battery isnt going to last as long. Just something your gonna have to get used to. I dont know of any ways to stop that but someone else might be able to shed some light for you.

    (PS. if you root your phone you can underclock it when you arent using it and that will save your TONS of battery life)

    For me I just plug it in when I go to bed. I mean who cares it takes 2 seconds to do it.

    You cant turn it off while its charing but it dosent matter. When the screen is off it goes into a low power state.
    The battery needs time to say "Grow in". Then it will be fine and regular for daily use.

    I would recommend just putting it in airplane mode when you want to "turn it off" :p
