    Awesome G, I made the same decision and officially ordered a case+screen protector for the G2. I haven't had a problem with it yet and even if I have to turn off data for a while (get almost no signal in the warehouse I work at, and neither does any phone that anyone else has) the data comes back immediately. Sometimes you just have to take a chance.

    I work in a warehouse too but we can't have our phones on the floor. So mine stays in my locker on airplane mode. A nice app you may want to download is Auto Airplane Mode. It puts your phone in airplane mode when you shut your screen off. You can also have it set to keep wifi and bt enabled even when it is active.

    The only problem with Auto Airplane is it shuts off any moving data when you sleep the screen. Great while at work, not so great outside of work. I use Green Power and enable it's location based data toggles. It doesn't kill the phone radio but kills the others unless in specified locations.

    Ok I am feeling really stupid. One sore spot for me on the LG has always been the white bar at the bottom for the touch buttons. All the times I have played with the setting I never noticed you could change the color. D'oh!!! But I also noticed that the transparency option does not seem to work.

    For me it really doesn't matter. When I am in airplane mode I don't worry about getting data anyway. Everything will purge when I take it out of airplane mode.

    The transparency works on our AT&T G2. Forgot to check it on the VZW one. Will do that on Tuesday. I like that you can change the settings up of the bar, so the back arrow is on the left like every other phone lol

    Yup the customizing features are a big plus. Some of the things you can do stock usually require root.

    Perhaps you misunderstood. With AA if you are sending data, such as an email, when you put the phone to sleep the data stream cuts off at the point and the email, as the used example, does not send. When you wake the device gmail will not reinitiate the send.

    Sounds like a defective cell phone. Time for warranty replacement?

    Naa think it is a software issue. Have heard of others having issues and a guy I know from VZW said his had issues and they have seen some come in with the issues as well.
