Sprint Product Ambassador: LG G Pad 7.0 FAQ

1816 Views
Sprint Product Ambassador

I found a FAQ and tips on Android Forums and thought it would be perfect to help anyone new to the device.  Also included are some helpful setup tips compliments of Geek Squad.


Q: How can I improve my battery life?
A: Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/4g sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your phone. Here are a couple of things that you could consider - adjust the screen brightness, do not use live wallpapers, switch off networks when not in use (WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS), adjust update intervals for widgets (do you really need twitter/facebook notifications every half hour?). You could also consider downloading a battery monitoring app such as JuiceDefender.

Q: Are there any LG G Pad 7.0 Tips & Tricks?
A: For any tips, if you use the "filter by" and select "Tips" in the sub-forum, you will get many useful tips and tricks.


SET UP YOUR LG G PAD FOR THE FIRST TIME


  1. Push the power button on the back of the handset to turn it on.

  2. Choose your language, it may already be correct but you can change it by tapping on it.

  3. Once you're happy with your language selection tap Next.

  4. Tick the Mobile Network box to enable your mobile internet service.

  5. Tick the Wi-Fi box to activate the Wi-Fi antenna and connect to a wireless network.

CONNECTING TO WI-FI NETWORKS


  1. Tap the Settings icon on your home screen. This can also be found by opening your apps list and finding the Settings icon in here.

  2. If it's not already selected, tap the Wi-Fi option at the top of the screen.

  3. Check that the Wi-Fi switch is blue, this means that the Wi-Fi antenna is switched on. If it's grey just tap the switch to enable it.

  4. Wait a moment while your tablet searches for nearby networks.

  5. You should now see a list of nearby wireless networks, tap on the one you want to connect to.

  6. Input the wireless password when prompted, you can tick the Show password box if to be certain of typing it correctly. Your wireless password can sometimes be called awireless key, WPA key or WEP key and is commonly found on the back or the underneath of your wireless router.

  7. Tap Connect.

  8. The network name will turn blue and you'll see the word Connected underneath to indicate a successful connection.

what is QPair?


LG's latest smartphone and tablet software, QPair, is a powerful tool which displays your phone's messages and notifications on your tablet's screen, as they arrive. This means that when you're using your G Tab 7 you won't need to keep pulling out your phone every few minutes to read your texts or check your other notifications.
