    Just picked mine up. Like you, I haven't had time to fully explore it yet. But, so far, I'm pleased with the call quality - noticeably better than the Optimus M+ I upgraded from.

    I will be coming from the OM+ as well. I'm waiting for my tax refund so I can get mine. I really can't wait to get mine.

    Does the phone come with Swype, in addition to the Android keyboard?

    alfick3,

    The standard LG keyboard looks to be it.

    Thanks for the reminder. I have the link in an email somewhere. I had gotten it when I had my Optimus M, and wanted to upgrade the version of Swype, that came on it, since it was really far behind.

    How's the screen res. on the Spirit?

    Also, the best keyboard app I have found is "Smart Keyboard Plus"

    They have a Trial version you can check out and I think the full version is $1.99 but well worth it.

    It has several keyboard styles such as iPhone, Android, Jellybean, Gingerbread, Galaxy, HTC, etc... and an option to get more Skins/Styles.

    You can also resize the keys and customize the keyboard.

    Best keyboard app IMO

    Doesn't the Spirit come with the same initial screen "protector" the Motion does? Mines been on my Motion a month now and it's still just fine. I Did however snip off most all the little removal tab so I wouldn't catch it on stuff and inadvertently lift it.

    I am guessing these style ones have the "adhesive" on the back of them Vs using the water solution like comes with the Zagg shields. I was not able to make my Zagg instashield apply cleanly.

    Are the "pre-glued" protectors Just Like the initial clear ones that come on the Motion available somewhere else? Linkee please?

    Another question; my sister-in-law has the Motion, and it has the capability of using On Screen Phone. Can the Spirit use this? If so, where do we get the latest version of it, and how to use it? I'm sure I could Google it, but I don't want to down load it from just some place. I tried a quick search of LG's site, but really didn't find anything on it.

    It seems that this phone doesn't have OnScreenPhone. I just looked.

    OSP is the abbreviation for onscreenphone.
