How to use my smart phone as a flash light?
How can I use my smart phone as a flash light?

I have seen other people do it.

I have an LG FIESTA™ 2 LTE

Don't know about androids, but yes if it is an iPhone. On the main screen you can swipe up from the bottom and you will see a flashlight icon. Touch that to turn on/off.

I don't see anything specific for the Fiesta, but here's a how to install a flashlight widget on their G2. Might be a start.

For many phones, there's a flashlight icon where you'd see your wifi icon or bluetooth icon when you expand the drop down. There are also apps & widgets you can download for many phones.

My phone, if I give it a double shake, it turns the flashlight on & off & it's seriously the handiest thing about my phone (once I figured out how I was turning on the flashlight in my purse! ha!)

When I first got my iphone, I needed some light and was just going to use my screen to find something that dropped on the floor. My 4 year old great-grand niece took the phone from me and turned on the flashlight feature. I had no idea it was there.

Sorry, I don't know about LG. Can you youtube it? That's how I learn about stuff, when there are not toddlers around to show me.

On my phone the flashlight icon come up when I swipe up. It is right there with airplane mode.
Funny story, when I first got the phone the flashlight feature came on. I had no idea what I touched or how to get rid of it. I called AT&T, where I got the phone from and they told me how to turn the flashlight off.
If all else fails, perhaps you can call the company you bought the phone from to ask.

If "SORRY!"s were dollars, how rich I would be.

Just go to the App Store and search flashlight. There are several, some better than others, so users rate them.
