Question about Samsung UpStage SPH-m620 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

When I try to set an appointment/sent text message, other letters are appearing. example: I try ro type "h" and when I hit the "4" button twice I get Gi. It seems to be trying to figure out what I'm going to spell. How do I stop this. This does not happen when I add a contact. I just moved to Baku, Azerbaijan, which is where I bought it. Does this matter. Thank you, Erik

Ok u probably have it set on T9Ab which u will see at the bottom left screen whenever ur sending a text, and thats how it works. It figures out what ur typing so u can just hit each letter that the words start w/ instead of clicking the number more than once just to get to a specific letter. Now to stop it from doing this, you go to options, go down to the 3rd option which says "Alpha" which means alphabet, which is where u r able to spell things out step by step how u prefer. Hope this helps you out, and good luck w/ ur phone, Im not too fond of it b/c it freezes a lot once uv had it 4a while. Merry CHRISTmas!!! =)

Tracfone's instructions for how to text do not work! what's up?


Texting on this model a bit tricky. First pull up name & number of person you want to text to, if it is in your phone. Then hit short dash line under the word 'options'. Make sure #1, 'create message' is highlighted. Hit ok button. Now type message. If you want a 'v', for example, you have to hit the #8 button 3x quickly. If you make a mistake, hit 'clr' button on top right to clear it & retype. So, for example, you want to send the word 'please'. You would have to hit the #7 button once, wit a second for the curser on screen to move to next space, then hit the # 5 button 3x quickly to get to the 'l', wait for curser, then hit #3 button 2x quickly to get to the 'e', etc. You get the drift. This model is not very conducive to sending longer texts. It's too time consuming & annoying. But short ones are ok if you have the patience. IF you need a space in between words, hit the '0' button once (that's zero, not 'o'). This is where text code comes in handy for shortening words, such as "LOL" for laughing out loud, etc.

Once you are through typing note & want to send it, just hit ok button to send. It may take a bit of time for message to go through. If you type a lot, it may take up more than 1 page, if this happens, the phone will ask you 'message is 3 pages, do you want to send now', or something like that. The longer the message is, the longer it will take to send.

One thing to keep in mind, before you start typing, make sure you hit the bottom lower key that has the asterisk & up arrow on it 3x quickly, or else when you type, it will be all garbley goop. If you want a capital letter, you also have to hit that same key once before you hit letter key. It only works for one letter at a time, so if you need to do more than one, say you want to type "DVD", you have to hit asterisk key once, then #3 button for 'D', then asterisk key again, then #8 button 3x for "V', etc. If you need a symbol or punctuation, use the bottom right hand key that has the # sign on it. Hit it once & some symbols come up, you will have to move over to the one you want by using outlined area around the 'ok' button. Once you get to symbol you want, hit 'ok' button it will add that symbol or punctuation to your text & return you to your text area.

If you do not see the symbol or punctuation you want, hit small dash under the word 'next' & it will take you to the next page. I think there are 7 pages of these different symbols & punctuation.

Hope all that helps. Email me at: ldgtreke4@aol.com, if you have any other questions. Put short note in subject box so I know what this is about. Good luck!

Incorrect letters come up


Before texting, you have to hit the bottom left button that has the asterisk on it 3x quickly to get to the regular alphabet. I don't know why. I had a hard time figuring this out also when I first got the phone. A neighbor 10 year old figured it out for me! ha ha

How can one type with a normal typing keyboard rather than hitting abc for a c?


If your phone only has the numeric pad you can change the setting from "abc" to "T9". T9 is a predictive texting mode, so if you wanted to type the word "hello" you would just press the corresponding numbers 1 time, for example: 4(gHi)-3(dEf)-5 (jkL)-5(jkL)-6(mnO), so you would only hit 4-3-5-5-6, if the word is not the first word displayed you can hit the next key which is usually either * or # depending on your phone. The T9 setting is usually changed by again hitting either the * or # key, or sometimes 0. It is also sometimes selected on the texting menu from within the message.

How to text


to text:
1. at the "home" screen, click the button to the left of the analoge stick, this should click on menu taking you to a screen with 9 icons.
2. click the icon on the top row in the middle called "messaging"
3. Select option one "new message"
4. Type whatever the message is using the numbered buttons 0-9.
5. Once finished, select the option "send to", and input the name or number you want to send it too.
6. To make sure it sent, go back to the options screen with "new message" but scroll down to the "sent" box, if the message sent than it would be in there, if not, your message will be in the outbox and it means you have a bad signal. If its in the "outbox" than hit resend and wait to see if it sends.
7. that's the basics of just sending "text" but "pictures" are different,
8. ENJOY!

When trying to text incorrect letters appear


There should be an option somewhere when you are in the message menu on how to switch from the text mode that tries to finish your words for you to the text mode where you have to push the button however many times to get the the single letter you want. Although if you are in the auto finish mode you can simply ignore what it's suggesting and continue spelling out the word yourself if you want. example: hit 9 6 8 one time each to spell the word "you"..buy if your trying to be able to short hand text like "thk u" your gonna have to look around in your text mode settings.

Texts random letters and then sends on it's own

Text messaging


hit # to toggle through the different modes... however, if you get used to using the 'autosuggest', it'll make things faster, and as you use it, it'll start to learn what words you use more often. just hit the key for whatever letter you want, and then you can cycle through suggestions, probably with up and down on the dpad, or take the suggested word with right.  you don't hit multiple buttons to get the letter you want, you let it guess for you.  so, to get 'hello', you press 43556, instead of 4433555555666.

Need complete recent call log and more days for text message storage


The call listing only shows one caller by design, to help with clutter on the list. It's a little funky, but if you think about scrolling through pages of the same caller just to find that number to the pizza place again, it makes sense.

If you open Messaging, you can access the settings in the menu there to increase (or set to never delete) text message life.

Please let me know if you get stuck!
