This phone is really starting to annoy me. My birthday is in a few weeks and honestly, I probably will be asking for a better phone and company. I am just pissed to give up 25 dollar a month plan which is the only reason I came and stayed with Virgin. Anyway, I've had my LG optimus V for like 3-4 months now and at first I was like "Aw, this phone is awesome to be so cheap." 4 months later, I am having similar issues with other android phones(Waiting around for updates, Overheating, Lag, etc.) But the biggest issue I have with this phone is Text messaging. What used to be a slight delay in receiving has turned into NEVER receiving. Yesterday, I did not receive ANY text messages at all. At first I was happy but there is something wrong with this picture. Even in the off chance, none of my friends texted me, I still have Parents who smother the hell out of me and text me way too much yet they didn't text me. I find out people have been trying to text me(my best friend, my brother) and I have not gotten their texts even though they said they had been trying to text me for 2 days. I turned the phone off and back on...No help I turned the airplane mode off and on...no help? Could it be the App? I am using GO Sms Could it be my phone number? I am in North Carolina with a New Jersey area code. I am at my wits end because I could be having a conversation via texts and we are texting back regularly and then all of a sudden I stop receiving texts.
