Text message function seems to be in some automatic word mode.
Letters appearing on the screen do not correspond to those entered. Scrambled words appear instead and underlined. Phone seems to be on some automatic word setting, Don't know who this happened. Not obvious how to undo it.

Check the keyboard settings. You should have the keyboard setting corresponding to the layout of your keyboard.
Click on the keyboard logo on the bottom right of the screen and check the language setting.
1. Press Setup.
2. Press 4, and then press 1.
This selects Basic Fax Setup and then selects Date and Time.
3. Enter the month, day, and year by pressing the appropriate numbers on the keypad. Depending on your country/region setting, you might enter the date in a different order.
The underline cursor is presented initially beneath the first digit; it automatically advances to the next digit when you press a button. The time prompt automatically appears after you enter the last digit of the date.
4. Enter the hours and minutes.
If your time is displayed in the 12-hour format, the AM or PM prompt automatically appears after you enter the last digit.
5. If prompted, press 1 for AM, or 2 for PM.
The new date and time settings appear on the control panel display.
You get special characters by using alt codes. That is, you press and hold the "alt" key while entering a 4-digit code using the numeric keypad (or, on a laptop, the keys that serve as a numeric keypad). When you release the alt key the special character appears at the cursor location. This page lists the characters and corresponding code.
If you are using an application like Microsoft Word, there may be an "insert special character" command available. Then you can pick the character from a table instead.
I have the Model 600. In the characters, there is one that looks like an "underline". Actually, it allows a space between words and does not make an underline mark. Some of the embroidery machines use that character to allow a space between words instead of having a "space" character.
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.
