Quick question...
Under Settings => Storage = > Miscellaneous I have two apps consuming the following...
.thinkfree at 9.09MB
dianxin at 2.70MB

Can I delete these from my internal memory? They both appear to be deletable via the check-box, using the trash can. I have never used either.

thanks in advance

Do you have any ThinkFree apps installed? If not, you should be able to delete that (unless LG has partnered with ThinkFree for one of their preinstalled apps).

I've seen Dianxin mentioned before. They make a custom Android ROM--have you rooted your phone?

Thanks for the reply.
My phone is not rooted.
No I am not using anything having to do with thinkfree.

I do use the included Verizon text messenger app and the My Verizon app... where I can check and see my data usage, billing cycle...etc.

If I delete thinkfree do you think will it cause problems with those Verizon apps?

Glad that things are working fine. I still wish we could figure out what the Dianxin thing is. When I search for it, the only thing that really comes up is the custom ROM.

A-ha! Good find. I guess that's what the "D" in DU stands for! Incidentally, I've seen prior posts about somewhat questionable or downright shady behavior related to DU Battery Saver, so that's one of the apps I'd generally avoid in the first place ...
