Thank you again.

I'm almost certain the lockscreen widgets were culled because of the new security measures in Lollipop, so that's not just the LG hating on G2 but rather a Google decision affecting all Lollipop-running phones.
And for the weather animations... Maybe something went wrong with your update as I still have them. The main widget was redesigned to conform to the new Material design but if you open it up, the animations are still there. So are the weather animations on lockscreen, that one still works.

As for updating: you certainly can't update it through your local mobile networks but it may still be possible through the WIFI or through the LG PC Suite(although this is often problematic for variants used away from their originally intended region). It will be definitely possible to update it manually by using the files and guides from XDA.
If you can't return the device, then I guess that's one of your last hopes- the XDA forum is populated by developers and enthusiasts who can teach their phones to make them a sandwich. You may be able to find some kind of a workaround or a possible fix there, but you need to read properly, read a lot and even if you do everything by the book, the possibility of causing irreversible damage to your device can never be completely dismissed so if you decide to follow one of their guides, be aware that it's solely your choice and your responsibility. I wish you the best of luck.

Try to check that out in the settings-security if there aren't one too many managers sporting a weird name.
Im using LG g2. ITs been great for the past 5 months. But lately,There's a short cut called "Web Games" that keeps showing up on my Home Screen. I cannot trace where it came from. The short cut opens a Website called "h5playlist.com" which is a simple HTML 5 based Game Website with a few random games. The Whois of the Website traces to a Chinese Domain Name Provider, ename.com, and the games are provided by a German HTML 5 Game company, softgames.de.
I did a couple of times of factory reset but no luck. How will this annoying shortcut be removed?
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2015Which features do you miss?Ill start with few,lock screen weather animations,wi-fi file transfer(wich i miss most). Anyway is time for change and new phone.

g2 has many variants wich provides good things to each one ,if u took the g2 as ur phone u did great this device is a beast and even can beat new mid rangers, even it is most powerfull than g3 if we take raw performance based on ,on screen graphics .... longer battery life and keep nice camera features that u will miss atleast on it......
now back on g2 .. the t-mobile version is good because it is close to the d802 variant regarding to modding and unbrick solutions....i can recommend the device as per usage but u have to consider if this 801 variant use the right networks in ur country..... u are free to call ur carrier or service operator and check for the 3g/4g/lte networks ... i use a d800 wich use lte networks in my country ... u can google or simply call them like i said ..keep in mind that the operator of ur choice may not provide lte but other carriers in ur contry may provide the lte service ..... getting edge or 2g means no support for that.... keep in mind too that if everything works but no data make sure u have the correct apn settings configuration for ur device other wise u wont be able to connect,,,,, u can check ur networks if u go to SETTINGS / MORE NETWORKS OR MORESETTINGS ( just below data usage ) / MOBILE NETWOKS in this place u can find if u have the correct apn settings for ur carrier and network mode so u can check if ur device is set for the right frequencies
Emmy, 05 Dec 2015Is the g2 t-mobile a good phone please let me knowyes it is good . even i have lg g2 t-mobile :)
Just updated to lollipop, my personal opinion, LG cut most of the premium futures. Lollipop is a step back for the g2 users. If they dont push 5.1 in near future i not gonna buy LG phone again!

Then click right here on the "specifications" tab and there you have it under "network" (you may need to click on it to expand the full info).
Then compare if the frequencies listed by your provider corespond with the frequencies supported by the "D801" variant (the T-mobile one).

There may be something wrong with the phone but first and foremost, check if your chosen variant (D801 I think) supports the frequencies used in Nigeria. If not, the by far easiest solution is to return the device and buy a suitable variant instead.
