    So there are two G4's in my household, both on Verizon, but only I am experiencing these issues.

    The biggest issue is text messages not sending/being delayed (sometimes up to thirty minutes) and either finally sending or I get frustrated and pull the battery and reset the phone and try again (sometimes I have to do this three to four times). The message will sit there and with a spinning circle.

    I currently use Chomp, but have tried Textra, Handcent, Go SMS, and the LG SMS app and they all do the same thing.

    Another issue I have encountered: I am unable to send pictures that are taken with the phone. If I save one from FB or whatever, I can send it no issue, but ninety-nine times out of a hundred I cannot send a photo taken with my phone. It does the same thing... spins, spins, spins, then fails.

    Only, sometimes it shows me that it fails and the person on the other end gets one of my three or four attempts (happened once).


    Is anyone else having issues such as this? I've done everything aside from a factory reset, which I fear still won't fix the issue. Thinking of taking it in today, because it's also suffering from over heating as it's constantly switching between 4G/LTE, 3G, and 1x. I can sit and watch it cycle through them. I thought it was a particular spot in the house, but it's not. I've watched it do it at work, outside, at others houses.

    I'd definitely take it in. Sounds like a radio issue.

    Yes take it in. Take the other phone too. Me and my wife had identical handsets in the flip phone days. Wow... I think those were Lgs too. Mine was fine, the wifes overheated, sent text erratically,poor reception. Eventually the battery started bulging and they replaced it. Bottom line take. It in. Might be manufacturing defect.

    I got it swapped out with a new one. After a week it started doing similar things with the MMS (not SMS or overheating though), so that lead me to believe it was something that I had installed or changed, so I factory reset and didn't restore from backup (except contacts). So far it's been good, but it has only been like two days. Fingers crossed!

    Have you tried th the Verizon message + app? This is the first phone I've used it on, and it has been flawless so far.
