corky, go to "settings" "touch""touchscreen effect"
there you have feedback, tone, vibration, and volume.
I was surprised to find out that each different Profile maintains its own Touchscreen Effect settings. When you change to a different Profile, you have to go back to the Touchscreen Effect window and customize the settings for that Profile if you don't like the default setting for that Profile.
I changed all my Touchscreen Effect -> Types to No Feedback to increase battery life and cut down on unnecessary beeps.
I haven't been through all the posts connected to the LG800G, but there was something that I found out that's not in any of the directions. To use the zoom for pics and video, instead of trying to move the bar provided with your finger tips, you can use the up and down volume buttons on the side while in the camera mode. It's much easier for me anyway.
I just discovered that if there's a menu entry, file name, or contact name that's too long to read, then pressing and holding down on that item will scroll the text so you can read all the text.
Holding down and releasing on a contact name seems to keep the text scrolling, while doing it on a file name invokes the action associated with tapping on that file name, although I have seen some inconsistency with that behavior.
Is it possible to do anything useful with the phone like look at my contact list while playing MP3?
What I had done was go to the My Stuff folder, clicked on the External Memory icon, then navigated down to a folder where I had a MP3 file and clicked on it to start playing it. Doing it that way, there is
no option to minimize the Music player.
Dice->Music is the way to go that allows the Music player to be minimized.
The OS is a java based OS.
Has anyone had experience with installing third party java apps (games, new apps like text pads or browsers, etc) into the phone via the SD, BT, or USB? (the area i am in does not offer mobile internet coverage)
I installed Bolt and Opera Mini by downloading the jars to my PC, then copying via USB to the phone. I was not able to install the applications securely that way and kept getting untrusted application warnings. The only way I could resolve that was to download and install the browsers directly using the native LG800G phone browser.

I takes some tricks to get the signed version on a PC.
Easiest is to change the UserAgent string so you PC looks like a mobile phone to the web server.
I used User Agent Switcher to see the files for Opera Mini. But I wasn't able to use the PC as an intermediary in any way, shape, or form and get the signed version onto the LG800G. So I got the URL for the .jad file and typed it into the phone before connecting the browser, and let the phone do all the downloading and it worked perfectly. I think it charged me 1.5 units or something like that, so it wasn't really worth fussing with the PC after all.
