    When I type in any program (text, notes, Word...), whether with the hardware keyboard or the onscreen, I only get a few characters before the phone slows to a crawl, effectively frozen.

It took me a long *** time to fix my wing, but this is the only way i found. shout out to my homie muhammed for showing me:

hold both left and right toggle button simultaneously, and use stick to press the reset button. continue to hold buttons....

it will reformat. press send to wipe the phone.

then, use active sync to completely wipe the micro sd memory card once wipe is complete

this will delete the static charge virus

lastly, go to tmobile website and download the rom software upgrade.

reconnect the wing to your pc

charge the phone past 50%

click on the new software upgrade icon and follow instructions.

the screen will show 3 lines, green red and blue with the new upgrade version numbers.

once complete, you have completely upgraded the tmobile wing to the fullest extent

if this does not work, then sadly enough.... your problem is from dropping your phone too many times and causing the components to become loose connections. aka the sliding keyboard.

i also noticed that the only thing stopping the keyboard from stopping is a tiny square piece of plastic. but then again, this phone was crafted in china. chinese plastic isn't the most sturdy composite material.

Just an add-on to the second solution posted here: it appears that the problem is due to a corrupted word-completion database. If you hit "clear entries" button in the "Word Completion" tab, typing will work again.

I had this problem in the past, to fix this problem i just turned off the "suggest words when entering text" option in my phone. follow these steps:
1. Click on start
2. Choose Settings
3. Under the settings tab, click on "input"
4. click on the "word completion" tab
5. remove the check on "suggest words when entering text"

once that is done, your problem while texting should be solved

T-Mobile Wing Freezes & Restarts while texting


you can try to restart the phone. The only problem with that is that everything you have saved on ur phone gets deleted unless its on a memory card. What you have to do is turn off your phone then wait a couple of seconds then hold the power button along with the to line buttons by the green phone and the end call button. After you hold them down you wiil see a screen that will have some writing when that shows up you press the green phone button. After that it will restart but its going to take a while for it to restart. then when its done deleting everything its going to ask you to tap the screen the its going to ask you to do the align screen. you can skip the rest after you skip it the pocket pc page will come up and it will show you its installing everything when its done it will turn off and start up again. and there you go like new. if that doesnt help the you should go get it checked out..

Can't Text Message on my wing


Make sure you have the current version on your device. Log in to your T-Mobile account and go to Support then click on Phone & Device. You should be able to verify what your version is upon upgrading to the newest software. When I had my Wing, I did that and it helped tremendously with texting, freezing, resetting, and it also helped with security settings also. Also, be sure that you dont have alot of texts in the inbox, outbox, drafts, and sent folder that drastically decreases the device's physical memory and causes freezing also. Try to keep all pictures, files, videos, music, and 3rd party applications on your memory card. Windows Mobile devices are known for bugs and freezing and any little thing can set them off.

If you still have tmobile as a carrier, call them and tell them you are going to India or somewhere where there Tmobile doesn't have a big presence. Tmobile will unlock your device for free. As long as you have been a customer for 30 days or so.

Do a backup with PIM Backup and them hard reset the phone (Factory default)

To hard reset the wing: Hold both soft keys down while hitting the reset button with your stylus (the little hole on the side). Should bring up a black screen with some text. Press "send" key to finish process.

*Note it takes a couple of tries to get all of the buttons pressed together. May not work first try.

I have lost a button on my wing phone ( the button under the talk button)


I have had the same issue twice now, both times I was able to buy replacement buttons on e bay for about 10 dollars, however there is no instructions, and I think it was my fault it broke the second time because they are so delicate and difficult to replace without breaking a clip. However they are cheap and easy to find on e bay if you wanna chance the repair yourself!!
