    Does anyone else have a problem where you have to go to settings and disable and re-enable GPS, data, and sometimes WiFi in order to get it to pick up?

    The drop down toggles are not working for this.

    I'm not having to restart... just long click the toggle, it'll take you to the actual menu, turn it off and on. Toggling airplane mode may work too.

    Still a pain when driving and in need of directions.

    I don't feel like switching my phone out, I hope i can figure out a fix. I'm going to try leaving gps and data permanently on, and see if that keeps it from happening. Of makes it the weekend with no problems, I'll not exchange it.

    The sprint store told me that they get almost no viper complaints, and haven't seen this maybe an email to lg is in order.

    Or... maybe it is because i manually and didn't wait for the push??

    I never had problems like that on my Viper, but with the overheating I traded it out for a Galaxy Nexus, and now I'm getting another one because it suffers from overheating too. if phone #4 over heats, I'm going to scream until I get something better.

    I actually haven't had the problem again yet. I have just left everything on, and let the software manage the GPS and data. Haven't noticed battery drain, haven't lost GPS.

    My viper does that occasionally, it only does it on 3g and sometimes wifi.
