Does anyone know how to silence the camera shutter, still goes off even in silent mode.
I'll add to that. When I look at "what has been using my battery the most" Google maps shows as using 66% of the battery. I can't figure out why maps would be constantly awake and running unless the app is constantly trying to find my location but location services are turned off. I keep task killer killing it and force stop as well but I can't get it's usage down.
Cell standby is only 15% so I'm thinking if I can solve the Maps issue that will greatly increase the life...
I've had the Elite for about 24 hours and it seems to overheat and shut down easily, especially while in my pocket. Replaced an OV with this phone and like it so far (the increased memory for apps alone makes it a good upgrade), but that overheating is a concern. Maybe I have a dud...
Your attempt to hotspot the phone corrupted a file in the phone according to VM and I had to do a FR to get rid of it. There was a another error someone mentioned, maybe 104 or something like that which they got after trying some sort of mod to the phone.
Regarding heat... All batteries get warm when being charged or drained fast. I think on this phone, due to the NFC antenna on the back, maybe it transmits more of the battery heat through the back cover. I can remember some times with my OV, even through a silicone case, it would be warm. Not hot.
I heard someone talking about the camera lens being too hot to touch. I suspect that was a gross exaggeration as I doubt it was hot enough to "brand" them, i.e. maybe it was a wimpy exaggeration.
Still hoping to find a way to root so I can use Titanium and it would be nice to be able to hotspot or tether, but maybe that will have to wait until a hacked ROM comes out.
Oh wow guys, I've seen Error 67 when hacking up my Optimus Slider to provide sweet delicious hotspotting capabilities. But, guess what, after the error appears everything switches to normal within 30 seconds. Even when things go entirely beserker, I can always restart my phone. And you're saying that even after doing a complete reboot the only way to fix this is to remove all the data on the phone.... ooh boy.
It's so good to hear the Elite is worth the extra effort and investment... Just gonna throw out that alternative for people looking to actually tether; the Elite is probably a bad idea.

I'm also the one who spoke about the camera lense getting hot. It was not an exaggeration. It did not "brand" me, but was hot enough to say "ow!" When I accidentally touched it.
My phone is obviously defective based on the error that nobody(even VM) can explain and the extreme heat. Luckily I still have my receipt. I just gotta wait til I visit family tomorrow, because none of the Walmarts near me have them in stock.

All the companies make a lemon now and then and it is too bad you seemed to have gotten one.
I am accustomed to touching hot things so you wouldn't find me saying "ow", but I know they can vary in warmth and tolerance to it.
They make all those fan things and pads for laptop computers as people couldn't tolerate the heat from the computer and/or the battery charging circuitry. When we are charging and using the phone, it is like carrying around a light bulb creating heat, at the same time we are creating heat by trying to charge and replenish the battery, and there just isn't a way to do it, other than slow down the charging rate, then there would be complaints of slow charging. I still think the NFC antenna can be part of what is going on vs. strictly a plastic back.
Please forgive me for not going through these 5 pages, if this has already been addressed...
I just bought the Optimus Elite, with my grandfathered $25 plan, and everything is working fine. I've talked, texted, downloaded, browsed and everything else.
My problem however, is that I can't seem to sync my multiple GMail accounts and keep my downloaded apps on my main account.
I initially synced my phone to email "A," then download some apps. And then I remembered to add email "B" to GMail. When I try to download an app afterward, it saves to my "B" account. I've toggled between the two accounts in the Market, but I can't seem to get anything to save to email "A" while "B" is also synced to my phone. I was able to do this on the OV, so I know it's possible to toggle between accounts in the Market.
Anyone know how I may be able to fix it? Sorry if that was confusing to follow.
Mine doesn't heat up at all. I ran a test to how long the battery would last on 3G alone... after 24 hours had 39% battery. Not bad. Today after 10 hours on 3G and wifi, listening to internet radio on 3G for an hour, still had 75% battery. That's really good. Tunein Radio uses a lot of juice.
