Something in the update killed the digitizer as everything worked fine before the update. The phone itself was fine as well on 4G, WIFI, getting calls but I couldn't answer them by touching the screen just bringing it to my ear. Did hard reset. Didn't help. In fact its no longer activated so before the reset I at least had a half working phone. Took it to the store and they couldn't swap it out since this is a corporate account. Verizon Business is FedEx me one tomorrow worst case Monday. Which means I'm stuck with a brick phone until then and using the Gvoice for calls on my nexus 7. Yea I had a bad day.
Lesson learned though, I need to find a way to backup my phone prior to an update. Well in this case its a hardware issue so I guess it wouldnt have mattered, but still. Verizon took out the LG backup tool. Is there anything similar that would back up everything like a nandroid on a stock phone?
BTW - thanks for the responses
