Let me be one of the first to start a thread regarding the 5.0 update for the LG G2 as of 3/30/2015.  Any issues or pros/cons?

Yes, I came here too see if anyone else had any suggestions for getting back to the old predictive typing.  The LG keyboard I had this morning was wonderful.  I really miss that.  Does anyone know if there's any way to get back to that?  I like the LG keyboard MUCH more than the Google one.

The LG G2 keyboard is still there.  Just change your Input settings to the LG keyboard.

This update has nearly bricked my wife's phone. It is DRASTICALLY slower, the UI is hideous, and she now gas to have the data enabled in order to send/receive pictures. If I complained to Verizon, would we be able to get a new phone? Anyone have any assistance on the matter?

Sounds bad. I don't understand how it can be the same upgrade and so

different for everyone. By the way I found my messaging icon so all is good

now.

Reset the phone to factory.  Messages will always use data, but the mobile data can be off.  That's how it used to be and should still be.  This is how mine is.

But no, you might get a replacement, but not a different phone, unless you are eligible for Early Edge, and the Turbo is worse.

***UPDATE***I did a factory reset this afternoon after the update a couple days ago. SO MUCH BETTER!!! This was kind of the last straw with this phone but the reset has seemed to have worked. Two hours off the charger and I'm still at 98% battery with the WIFI on and notifications coming through. Will update again in a couple days as to my findings with more extensive use.

Since I updated yesterday some of my apps aren't working properly. Facebook won't refresh pre-load until I force stop and try again. YouTube nore the Google Play store will even load. Is anyone having these issues? Is there something I cab do?

I did have an issue with the play store not opening as well as google now, and might be a google apps issue, but after uninstalling updates for each app and then going back to the play store they updated properly.

My lollipop update reeked havoc on my GPS, Play Store, Play Music, Google Maps, AND YouTube!

The GPS finally worked itself out... it had to be the Location as Facebook, Maps, and other apps could not access Location... so it definitely wasn't specific to any other app.

Unfortunately, the Play Store is totally hosed. Cell kept getting an update notification for Play Store.  Somebody online indicated that when this message occurs after the Lollipop update, delete the cache, clear data, uninstall updates and reboot - DO NOT DO THIS!  Afterwards, when I open Play Store, I get a white screen with "Google Play Store" on the top. Nothing else happens... it still looks like the original version under settings as it does NOT say "uninstall updates" any longer... as I expected it to be updated or prompted to update.

With Play Music, it prompts me to login and I cannot... it doesn't do anything after I select my gmail account or Add Account.

Google Maps doesn't allow me to sign in either - I click Sign In, select my gmail account, the pop up screen closes and I'm back to Sign In page.  I click Sign In again and Add Account... brings me right back to Sign In page.

However, I go to Gmail account and it's fine... I sent test email to it and it was received right away.

I went into Accounts - as perhaps that's the common denominator for these issues, and it's syncing Plus, but successfully synched photos, drive, uploads, people details, etc.

AFTER ALL THIS, I'm still getting the "an application requires an update - requested by Google Play services" notification.  After clicking it, the header says "Play Store" but under that, there's a white screen... nothing else.  If I click the search, the label then says "Search Google Play" so it seems to be registering something on their server.

If I cannot access Play Store, how am I supposed to download apps, upgrade apps, fix apps that this Lollipop broke?

PS... HOLY COW... Just read another posting about their YouTube not working... and guess what?  My YouTube is NOT working.  RED header with the menu icon, and the circling in the middle - on top of a blank white screen.

Others had the 1x issue... I don't remember if it was in the beginning or at the end of this thread... but it's somewhere here.

Yes, I had the same problem. Called customer support and they "reset" my line, which fixed the problem.

Of course, now my LEDs both front and rear no longer work, but hey, whatever.

I think I'd try sideloading the play store apk file, updating it, and rebooting. If that didn't work, I guess id  back up my content and do an FDR.

All the Gapps, for the most part, seem to be having an issue.  I suggest uninstalling and deleting the cache/info from each app you have an issue for and rebooting, and going back to the play store for auto updating.  (Play Store, Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, etc...)

After the update to 5.0.2 and factory reset most everything seems to work except for the new smart lock feature and streaming bluetooth music skips which is annoying.
