LG Viper 4G LTE

I'm looking for input on the LG Viper 4G LTE phone being offered by Sprint.  I currently

have the Nextel Mototola i880 and am looking to replace it with a phone that is more

suitable to email, texting and Internet.  Would appreciate any input on the LG Viper

phone and how it works for those.

Looking to seeing the input

Re: LG Viper 4G LTE

I have an LG viper and love it, it does everything I want it to do very well. Mine has been very stable and reliable. It doesnt lag up or freeze on me, takes nice pictures, plays games well and is priced very good all that it does. Their are a few nice features to the phone that I love, one is that its the first sprint phone that can talk and surf the internet on 3g at the same time no wifi needed, nexted it has NFC which is Near Field Comm this lets you transfer data with another NFC phone or device it also supports google wallet which lets your pay for items at supporting retailers, and when you get the phone activate google wallet from the phone and you get 25 dollars free to do with as you please at those NFC retailers. Also it supports the new LTE network and is suppose to be upgraded to the new android operating system a little later on. Over all I have been impressed with the Viper, the only down side I have found is when wifi is turned on the battery drains faster than normal, but I still go 18 to 24 hours between charges. Hope this helps make your decision.

Thanks for the insights.  I will probably go with it - need to get out of my current phone.

Salsa,

I went ahead and upgraded to the LG Viper 4G LTE phone today and am trying to get use to it.  One question (for now   When the phone is not in use, how do you turn it off so the battery is not consuming time.  I press the button on the top right size and that closes the window and blacks it out, but does that really turn it off, or should I do something to shut it off when not in use (at night, etc)?

Thanks for any insights

Press and hold the Power/Lock button for two seconds until you see the powering-down animation on the display screen.

Tap Power off and then tap OK

Thanks 14Knight, got it.  One more question - how do I turn of the music on power on and power off, without impacting the volume of the phone when talking to some on the phone.

Thanks again

I do not see a setting for that in the user guide many phones do not have this feature.

Re: LG Viper 4G LTE

Ok, here's another question - I have an account on Yahoo!  and am trying to setup access to it on the phone "My Yahoo!).  In trying to enter the user name, it is "firstname_lastname" - I can't seem to figure out how to get the underscore between the first & last name in there.  How do I enter that underscore.  I see on the screen what looks like the underscore, hit it but just get a blank space between them?

Thanks

lower left side of the keyboard you will see a key that has sym on it tap that key and it will bring up the symbols like the underscore.

Thanks, got it, but still learning   I'm still trying to figure out how to go to/search for certain website so I can add them to my favorites list.  Haven't figured that out yet.

Thanks again
