Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery Issues I've had for tablet for about four months now. It's a decent little tablet. I used it to stream shows mostly, but now it will not keep a charge. The battery is slowly charging, even if I keep it plugged up while watching shows, it still shuts down. It's now sending me a message saying battery is empty.

I bought LG G Pad X 8.0 from a pawnshop and it was reset but still has the previous owners google account attach to it. how can I do a complete system reset to put my info on there?

Asked by: jcolbert20
Hello jcolbert20, Having this LG G Pad X 8.0 with the previous owner’s information on it can be problematic, but there is a way to remove it in order for you to enjoy it! What you are experiencing is called FRP (Factory Reset Protection). I understand this has been reset. To make sure it has been reset properly, you can attempt an alternate factory reset from step 5 here:!/interactive/id/interactive_1500011136?make=LG&model=LGV520 Please visit this link from LG for further details about how to bypass the FRP: I hope you are able to get this resolved. Have a great day! Adam, AT&T Community Specialist

Why is numbersync only allowed to work with a postpaid account and not with my prepaid account?

Asked by: KevinInEverett
Hello KevinInEverett! Thank you for your interest in the Numbersync feature! This is a very useful tool to utilize. Let’s get this answered for you! Numbersync requires a Shared Data Plan; where with a PREPAID account, each line is run on it’s own data plan. For Numbersync to be compatible, data would need to be shared between multiple lines. I hope this information helps! Jordan, AT&T Community Specialist

How can I right click on a spread sheet cell

Asked by: dalemilton
Hello dalemilton! Great question! When using a touchscreen, to get to additional options in a spreadsheet a good step to try is pressing and holding over the cell you need to edit. If this does not work, I recommend reaching out to the app creators. I hope this helps! Fiona, AT&T Community Specialist
