    I just got an LG Vortex yesterday. I cannot add a contact and have it save. When I enter all the info in,,it says 'saving contact' then when I go back to look,,there is nothing there.

    ALSO

    My when not in use, my Vortex screen keeps popping on and off.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Try re syncing ur contacts. Sometimes helps.

    As far as the screen flashes, some apps run by themselves and set the screen to turn on. Mainly messaging, email, social, and I'm apps do this. If u use any of them, check the settings for this

    Pretty simple...

    Go to contacts. Press menu. Then accounts. The top two boxes should be checked to sync. Scroll down. Ur gmail should be there and should have a green circle on the right.

    To be sure sync is on. Easy way.

    On ur home screen hold ur finger on a blank spot till a window pops up. Click widgets. Scroll and find power control. The circle with the two arrows is sync. Make sure there is a green bar under it. If not click it. Power off then on.

    If this don't work be sure all contacts are set to view...

    Click contacts. Menu. Display options. Ur gmail is listed. Click it. Under make sure system group: my contacts, starred in android and all other contacts are checked. If not check them then go back to see if anything changed
