I'm sure this is very annoying! I am happy to assist.
Have you downloaded any Antivirus Free Applications to your device? If so, remove the application by going to Market > press Menu > Downloads > select Antivirus Free > select Uninstall. Here is an alternate way to uninstall an application: Uninstall Applications - LG Ally VS740. Once the uninstall is completed, then power cycle the device by powering the device off for approximately one minute, and power back on. This particular application has been known to cause these type of symptoms.
Let me know if this works for you.
I am having the same problem with my LG Ally. The phone will not lock, the home button won't work (the touch screen home icon will), and on top of that the phone button to call the last number (or bring up the call log) will not work. I have taken the battery out several times and have not downloaded any antivirus stuff. In fact I have not downloaded anything to it lately.
Also is there any quick way to delete trash items from my e-mail inbox without having to delete one by one? I have 4400 trash items and that will take forever!!!
But I need to know my first questions first.
Hello, My phone shut itself down today and now the home button (both on the phone and the keyboard), the call button, and the screen lock are not working. I refuse to get a new phone and would like to know how to fix this problem. I do not know why it is doing this but it is extremely annoying. Please help
may 14th mine did the same thing. screen lock is gone and the home button wont work. went into the verizon store. girl cut the phone off 3 or 4 times and took the battery out. she just kept telling me the home button didn't work. (like i didn't already know this) and told me my phone was out of warranty. that was that. its like it tried to do an update or something and it got stuff messed up on the phone because whatever happened it also reset my ringer to silent. wish there was an answer to this problem. the girl at the verizon store did say i could try factory reset to see if that would work but really don't want to do that if not sure it will work. anyone heard of an answer to this yet?
