    I just got LG Ally and have some questions / problems:

    1. The phone was on charge all night on Friday, I did not use is at all on Saturday, left it overnight without charging, and on Sunday morning it was out of battery - I could not use it. Is it normal? Do I need to charge the battery every day even if the phone was not used?



    2. Had a problem turning off the alarm. Apparently pushed some wrong button waking up, then could not get the alarm stop - had to delete the setting. Is there any easy way to bring back snooze / dismiss option on the screen?



    3. Cannot find instruction for a one touch dial. How do I set and use the one touch dial?



    4. Can I set the screen saver to a phone dial pad? So when I power the phone, the first screen I get is a dial pad?



    5. Is there an end button/touch, or one button that would turn all sounds off?

    Thank you

    Welcome to the forums.



    1) The battery dies pretty quickly when it is new. When I got my Ally the phone would die after 8 hours and I thought I made the worst purchase in the world. For the first week, you'll want to let the battery drain all the way down to zero, charge it back up fully, use it til it dies, and repeat the process. This will help the battery life. Some people claim the type of batteries in these phones don't need to be "Cycled" like this, but the evidence says otherwise, everyone gets better results from their battery after the first few days if they keep doing this. But these phones require a lot of power and the best you can probably hope for in the long run is that your phone will last 48 hours. Plan on charging this phone overnight quite often.



    2) When you're on the alarm setup screen, press the phone's menu button. You can choose what the "side buttons" on the phone will do, either Dismiss or Snooze the alarm. You can also set the duration for how many minutes the alarm will Snooze. If you're good at waking up on the first try, then just set your buttons to Dismiss so you won't have to worry about it.



    3) This is one method I know of for one touch dialing. On your phone's home screen, "long press" on an empty area of the screen (hold your finger down). A menu will pop up. Select shortcuts, then Direct Dial, and then you can choose from your contacts. Now you can just press this shortcut on the homescreen to call this person.



    4) I don't believe so. The phone will always "wake up" to the lock screen for security. If you leave the number pad on the screen, and then press end to lock your phone, the next time you unlock, it will come back to the dial pad though. (This goes for any screen that you leave open upon locking the screen). So if you want the number pad to be the first thing you see, just leave it open. But you'll always have to unlock first. Unless you want to download Apps from the market which can remove the phone's lock screen, but then you have to worry about dialing in your purse/pocket on accident.





    5) On the side of the phone, if you hold the volume down button for a brief second, the phone will go into Silent. Or from the lock screen, there are two sliders on the screen. The one slider unlocks the phone, the other slider turns sound on and off. Slide that over to the left and the screen will either tell you "sound off" or "sound on".

    Excellent BMB.

    One quick note,...even with the phone set to silent, notifications will still sound if the event occurs.

    Are you sure? The manual (Pg 245) states:

    Silent mode Allows you to silence all sounds (including call and notification ringtones) except the audio from music, videos, and other media and any alarms you have set. (You must silence media and alarms in their own applications.)



    But note that an option in the Alarm app is to have the alarm sound while in silent mode, too, so make sure you check it. To get there hit the Menu button while on the Alarm Screen, then touch settings.



    Minty, do you have the "Use incoming call volume for notifications" option checked (under Ringer Volume)? I know this was the key for other folks who were having ringer volume issues. I have not had any notification sounds when in silent mode, though I was only in Silent mode for testing.

    Oh forgot to add-



    Do you think what BMB wrote about "(the last App opened will appear when the phone is unlocked)" affects the battery? As a habit, I clear to my home screen when about to lock the screen because I fear the battery will be affected. This is especially true of the Maps, Navigator and Google Sky Maps Apps. They are resource hogs.



    So, do you think when the screen is off the Apps run (and close) in the background normally? Or, in order for an app to be readily available when the phone is unlocked, the phone will think the app is "high priority" and therefore not stop the App while the phone is locked?



    I don't think battery life is a big issue for the Dialer BTW. That app is small and seems to be on all the time anyway. But what about bigger, needier apps, like those that use GPS or WiFi to pinpoint your location. I know WiFi stops upon screen closure, but if an App is there when I unlock the phone, then the App has been running, right? Hence the use of Auto App Killers that close Apps when the Screen closes, right?



    Did my question make sense?

    Yeah I'm not 100% how all of that works, but to be safe, I would probably not leave anything open like Maps, Nagivation, or anything power-intensive. I don't know whether things will automatically stop running or not when the screen shuts off, but I wouldn't leave them open just in case. As you said, leaving your contacts or dialer screen open probably doesn't matter as much.

    Big Q, you're right. The alarm will still sound if the ringer volume is set to silent or vibrate. Not all notifications. I'm glad you caught that.



    Do apps run and close normally when the screen is off? Yes, I think they do. As long as the phone is turned on.

    If the app is there when you unlock the screen, has it been running? I think in most cases, yes. That's a good habit you have. I would close any apps you don't need running to conserve both battery, and the phones resources. Some apps will stop running after the task is complete, and may show changes or results upon unlocking.
