    Default LG G3 missing features

    Hi I just recently got my LG G3 for Verizon and just noticed some other people's g3's have a "themes" and "home backup & restore" options in the home screen settings. My g3 does not have these options. Is there anyway I can get them?

    I thought the "themes" option was only on the Korean version people were reviewing early on. Or did Verizon just screw us over?

    My unlocked UK version has the features and I suggested the OP repost here, from AAQ, because I thought it might be one of those US carrier things I've heard so much about. OP, have you been allowed to keep your FM Radio app?

    Slacker Radio blows.

    FYI, the stock radio doesn't function on Verizon.

    It does blow. That's why I deleted it after rooting. So any good g3 roms I can get that don't make me loose to many features?

    The Sprint version has the FM tuner and home back up and restore, but not themes (except for keyboard themes).

    I find it odd that T-Mobile disabled the fm radio. It's not like they want people to use up their data plan on music streaming.

    If using up a lot of data on music streaming meant people purchased more data...why exactly would T-Mobile mind this?

    T-Mobile doesn't count most music streaming services against one's data plan. 5MB or 5GB, it doesn't matter. With that in mind, a FM radio would actually benefit their network a bit because it would reduce load.

    I found out that if you root your phone and add xposed and g3 tweaksbox you can enable hidden settings in the home settings section where you can turn features back on that the carriers have disabled. Here is a link
