    Thanks for the help! It worked!!! Your great!!

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    Sure I can, what is the problem? I text too, all I do is text, expecially in class :P

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    Well, there is one thing you need to do, I had the same problem. The camera takes pretty good pictures, if you have editing software for your pictures on your computer, you have to crop the picture 240x400 in size, because the screen only supports certain sizes, I found this out when I was looking up screensavers on zedge.com, which has awesome screensavers for the LG Vantage for free. I hope I helped.

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    you have to do it on your computer, and then upload the pcture via memory card to your phone

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    sure you can, but it has to be 240x400 in megapixels,

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    absoloutely, just crop the photo in that exact format and it will

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    I just had to deal with the slowness...It was horrible! but i found that different skinswere faster like the black skin was faster than the silver skin, and like, yeah, i use the touch screen in class because it doesnt make clicking sounds, and when im in bed cause im too lasy to whip out the keypad aha, but yeah i loe the touch screen

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    Thats awesome, do you text in class at all?

  • shortjoe21 Feb 25, 2009

    Get a case, i have the black case, its awesome, it protects it, and it slides out easily, go to the store where you got your cell phone and buy a black leather case i can send you the link what it looks like, its not a *** case lol and its soft

I had this problem too, it was so frustrating!! But now it works and texts fast!
What you do is go into your text entry settings, and where it says "Word Choice List", turn that off. That will make it text fast but you will no longer have the drop down list of word choices. The list is good to have and convenient but I would rather have it text fast instead! Now, to choose a new word while texting you push the 0 button on the keypad or the next button on the touch screen.

    Your welcome!! It bugged me SO much when I first got my phone, I loved the phone but I mainly use it for texting so I was really disappointed! But then I figured it out now I love it. Hahaha



    But can you help me with something? It has to do with the camera and adding a screen saver.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Hahaha yeah. Ok, well when I take a picture and I want to use it for a screen saver on the home page, it only takes up like half of the screen? Like there is black space above and below the picture. Is it possible to change some settings in the camera or something to make it so the picture fills up the entire screen? Thanks :)

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Thanks, now will I have to do this on the computer only or is there any way to do this in my phone?

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Alright. Thanks!!

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Can I just plug in my phone or memory card or whatever, and transfer pictures from my computer onto my phone, then use those pictures as a background? That would just be much easier haha.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    ok so if i do that it will fit my entire screen?!

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Perfect!! thanks so much. Haha, so do you live in Canada?

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Oh cool. so you have bell? I have sasktel.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Oh really. Hahaha, sasktel=saskatchewan.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    No football!!! (well watching) and I got it almost 2 weeks ago! How about you.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Yes I love cfl. I love the Riders!! :)

    Regina.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Yeah, you!! And the argos ****! Except maybe they will be better this year, new coach and all. Haha

    Ps. Am I talking to a guy or a girl hahahaha

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Ok haha I'm a girl, 15, grade 10. hahaha

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Oh hahahah thats funny. I only send about 2500 a month, haha I thought I texted alot.. thats nuts how much you send! Haha. How did you text before when it was slow? Did you use the touch screen?

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Oh yeah haha I couldn't deal with my phone for 2 days texting that slow. Hahaha I was thinking of returning it because all I do is text, except I loved the rest of the phone :) And I love the touch screen too! But I prefer the keypad for texting because when you use the touch, the screen gets really small because the letters take up the whole screen. Haha

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Well I used to with my old phone but I cant really with this one becasue its too big to fit in my pocket, and I'm scared to put it in my pocket for fear of scratching it. Hahaha but I'm sure I will when its less new. Haha so yeah I cant bring it to class with me unless I take my purse, which I guess I do pretty often.. Haha

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Oh thats fine. Hahaha, but thanks.

  • kyrstin Feb 25, 2009

    Just send me a message on here tomorrow or something :) hahahah, nice talking to you

Daughter borrowed phone and switched the text msg typing to auto fill and numbers. I have tried every thing and I can't figure it out, can you please help me? Thank you, Susan


Based on your description, what you are referring to is called T9 Predictive Texting. It allows words to be entered by a single keypress for each letter, as opposed to the multi-tap approach used in the older generation of mobile phones in which several letters are associated with each key, and selecting one letter often requires multiple keypresses. Example, when typing the word 'love' in a T9 activated phone, all you have to do is press the numbers 5, 6, 8 and 3 once in sequence. As compared to the regular texting, in order to complete the word 'love', you have to press the number 5 thrice, the number 6 thrice, the number 8 thrice, and the number 3 twice.
If you want to disable T9 predictive texting, it can usually be disabled by pressing and holding the hash or number key (#).
Hope this information is helpful.

I would like to know if the lg ks360 has t9


Because of the full screen qwerty keyboard this phone does not possess t9 texting abilities. It is however extremely easy to adapt to as soon as you get used to it you won't want a t9 phone anymore. Best of Luck.

I have a LG420GM and I cannot figure out how to get it off T9, I would like it on the normal ABC texting, can you help me?


My phone was on the T9 mode when texting and I called tech support and was told to go to "create message" and mash the star button and hold for a few seconds until changes to the ABC mode.I did this and it worked. You can see it in the upper right hand corner what mode it changes to.Hope this works on your LG420GM phone,it did mine.

Predictive text on Samsung Propel


Well it's not so much a solution as it is an answer.

T9 is 9-key Texting. So it will only predict what you're going to type if you're using the 9-key triple tap mode of texting.

It WILL NOT intelligently select options of what it thinks you are typing on the QWERTY keyboard.

I've had this phone for less then a week & so far that would be my only suggestion for improvement. Otherwise, it's an awesome lil' phone for what I use it for.

when you are texting at the bottom of the screen it should give you an option to switch modes, you want to switch it back to T9 word. that should fix it. hope that helps!

SEtup t9 texting


When in Text mode, press the # button. With each press, you will see the 'Abc' on the screen changing. When you see the 'Abc' with a small book by it, then you are in T9 texting mode.
