    My lg ally won't take a charge. The charger light goes on and it looks like my battery is charging, but when I take if off the charger it says to plug it in there is no battery life. the smart phone is new to me so I'm pretty clueless as to how everything works I've read people saying to try a factory restart i m just not sure how do do that or if ill lose all my info any suggestions or info anyone has would be greatly appreciated thank you

    Are you using a factory charger or aftermarket? If it's factory, I'd take it back to verizon.



    As far as pulling up odd homescreens, that could be a number of things. I've noticed from time to time my ally will default back to the stock homescreen photo. It pops up in unusual places, but I suspect you will see less and less of that as you use your phone.

I'm very disappointed by this, and if it is indeed across all platforms, I hope there will be enough of an outcry that it will be corrected.


    I agree. I have also come to the conclusion that 2.2 is blocking aftermarket chargers on my Ally as well. It will only charge with the VZW wall charger from my previous EnV Touch. It no longer works with a Accurian usb wall charger...the same one I've used before with the phone, the wife's old HTC Eris, and her new Droid 2 Global (which all still charge). Took it to a VZW store, they plugged it in to various phone chargers on display, none worked...one of them did make the red light come on and acknowledge it was plugged in, but the charging lightning bolt came on and went out immediately. Nonsense.



    It does "suck", them doing this for greed, but this, coupled with random rebooting (yes, even after full restore and with NO aftermarket apps installed), it's gonna push me to get the Merge once it arrives. Froyo has rendered my Ally nearly useless. It was a nice lil' phone while it lasted...my first Droid. I won't forget you.

    I wonder if they tightened up the range of voltage/watage/whatever the phone will accept rather than actually blocking some chargers. This way it would make sense that some work and others don't work.

    This Happend to me. I have an Ally loved it in 2.1 then it sent 2.2 and I thought every charger I owned broke because in my car with generic chargers they did not charge any more except the light would come on. Here is what happend, I called LG and they said 2.2 was never designed to go into the small processor phones.



    HERE IS THE FIX, YOU MUST KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT ELECTRONICS AND SOLDERING, IF YOU CAN GENTLY DROP A SOLDER POINT FROM PINS 2 AND 3 ON THE USB SIDE CONNECTOR YOU WILL HAVE NO PROBLEMS I DID IT LAST NIGHT AND EVERY CHEAP WALMART 5 AND BELOW CHARGER WORKS JUST FINE.



    KEEP IN MIND PINS 2 AND 3 ARE FOR DATA TRANSMISSION YOU CAN NO LONGER USE THEM ON YOUR LAPTOP FOR DATA ONLY CHARGING THATS IT. BUT ON EBAY I GET MICRO USB CABLES 10 FOR LIKE 2 DOLLARS SO ITS GOOD TO GO.



    THE FOLKS AT VERIZON IN VIRGINIA BEACH RED MILL COMMONS SUCK! THEY WOULD NOT LISTEN TO ME AT ALL. THE LG REP LISTENED TO ME AND WAS VERY HELPFULL YOU TUBE VIDEO COMING OUT SOON TO FIX ALL THIS STUFF.



    HOPE IT HELPS IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS EMAIL ME rick.mopar@gmail.com here is the link below to help out with what the usb cable actually does.

    bottom line, I think FroYo is a vast improvement over eclair, and was worth it. But it's still an insult the way they try to play games and force you to buy accessories from Verizon and/or LG.
