    thanks. posted 1 question to apps and my other two in the ally sub forum. i might swing by the lgally forum. happy with it so far sort of. i have little hands and constantly mistype, can't imagine my BF trying to use the darn thing! miss the ease of my old phone. but considering this cost me about 30bucks when it was all said and done, i'm cool with it;-)

    I actually like the hard keyboard on her ally, and the onscreen keyboard in portrait is cramped, but usable. The landscape onscreen keyboard is better, though.

    I just wish lg would update the ally to froyo (android 2.2). Some of the issues my gf has would immediately be resolved (like performance or installing apps to the sd card).

    One of the best things you could do is install a home replacement app like launcherpro or adw launcher, your home screens navigation will be much smoother.

    She just installed the angry birds game and is addicted!

    i downloaded angry birds cause i heard it was addictive, and lets face it, we all need SOMETHING to do at work, but it kept freezing up. i had one of my coworkers remove it for me (and show me how). the onscreen seems touchy, and not touchy. its very frustrating to me right now, but i think i'll get better. sometimes it takes a lot of effort to get something to work and other times i just look at a letter and it shows up!

    Sorry angry birds didn't work for you, I guess its hit or miss, as my gf tried it once and failed, then tried it again and it worked.

    Its not like you do any WORK at work, right? :p

    One thing I've noticed with my gfs phone, the screen can be very responsive, except it doesn't seem to register touches right around the edges of the screen, only about a few mm away from the edge, all the way around.

    Third post in a row, sorry. Angry Birds mightve just been a one time bad install. You could try it again, as I said in the post above, my gf got it working on the second try.
