It will probably stay until a different contact takes it's place. You can also try adding their name again exactly as it was. After that, edit from your list of contacts by changing the contact name and number to that of directory assistance or other contact.

Unable to reply to text messages ?


you must be typing the name of the recipient instead of selecting them from the Contacts. You may type but as the name appears from Contact list, do select that.

LG Vu CU920. When sending a text message and tap the "send to" button, it brings up the contact list. At the top of the list is a box with 3 contacts in it in no particular order. I would think...


Thats one of the features of LG. If you find it annoting or disturbing, you can delete it with the following steps:
1. In NEW MESSAGE, press the RECIPIENT. You will go to the number screen. 2. Tap the bar with "To(1)" 3. Tap the OPTION ICON. (Can be found on the upper left of the scree. it looks like a square with horizontal lines) 4. A sub menu will appear after tapping the option icon. Choose RECENTLY USED. 5. You will be the proceed to a screen with recently used number. Tap again the OPTION ICON 6. Then choose DELETE ALL.

Enjoy using LG!

Sending text message to multiple emails from my contact list


when you add address it should ask you where from. say contact list (for this you must have email addresses of contacts in the phone book, then only will it work). Select as many as you want. If you do not have emai adds in the phone book then I am afraid you will have to write them seperated by comma. then send.

Is there any way to make the persons name appear for a text


It should be as simple as adding their name and number to the address book on the phone.

Make sure to list the number under the Mobile Phone line.

While in the address book, there is usually a line that says "New Entry" or "Add number" etc...(without the type of phone I cant get specific).

Another method is to into the text message itself and do an options click (again without the phone cant be specific) and there should be an option to add the number to the address book.

Can't delete the recent messages log on the LG CU920


Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option. Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button. Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3. I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila! MORE INFO: I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list. What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once. Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend. My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
