Go to the task manager and close out the app. Then reopen it.

That fixed it and I fixed my mms problem! I sent and received a picture in a text! TY so much!

This phone came preinstalled with AT&T phonebook and everytime I try to select a contact to call the AT&T phonebook takes over and takes me online to sign up for it (although there is no link there and nothing I can do). When I first got this phone I spent hours with LG and tried to fix this problem (it is a bug of some kind) to no avail. It is very annoying and I finally downloaded another contact/phone app and don't use the one that came on the phone. I was told I could fix that problem though, if I rooted. Now that I'm rooted I would fix it, if I knew how! LOL

I do appreciate your help and I will check into the backup/recovery option sometime.

Download an app in your playstore called.....No Bloatware free.....
No Bloatware free..... allows you to either turn the pre installed garbage AT&T loads into either of the following two options.
You can uninstall it and backup.....creates a apk of the app an stores it on your phone if you choose to reinstall it later.

Or erase it completely......

BEFORE YOU USE THIS READ IT..............If you are new to rooting an dont know which apps/files are suppose to be there......you could end up with a expensive paperweight......when in doubt google it, youtube it, ask first......always have good backup restore app with current backups to unbrick ur phone.
