    Just switched from T-Mobile to Verizon because they had a better deal on the LG V20. Reading how Verizon disabled Smart Settings, My Location, and FM Radio. WTF?!? I'm beginning to think I made a mistake switching and maybe I should go back!!

    Regarding keyboards: LOVE Swype!! Great keyboard and custom dictionary.

    I called VZW's exec relations number and they said LG is responsible for the disabled features. So who knows?

    Most likely. Nothing to be done unless we root our devices.

    I'm following that thread too. From the last post, it sounds like the radio might actually be missing from the phone, rather than just disabled in the firmware.

    A great review, OP! Glad that you like this phone and are enjoying it, especially after all that had happened with the Note 7 issue!

    As far as a different keyboard is concerned, SwiftKey is a very good app that predicts your typing; calculates your speed and heat map of where your fingers are most often positioned on your keys when you type; and the themes are great too.

    It's disabled
    Then could it be enabled via root?

    I'm not sure rooting discussion is allowed here.

    Have you not seen the suforum at the top of this forum? . Rooting / ROMs / all that is fine. We only draw the line when people want to go into the illegal things you can do with root -- That is what is not allowed to be talked about since we don't promote illegal things like stealing apps or movies, etc.
