How do I stop the reading out loud of my texts on my LGIP-340NV

Hi Lori,
Your phone is set to read text. To stop this feature, you do the following;
From the settings menu, scroll down to accessibility, you will see a hand icon. tap on it and un-check the Text-to-speech output.

You might have installed an application called Speak Caller Name on your phone that is reading your text too. Check that and switch it off or configure it to stop reading out loud.

Hope this helps.

How to open my cellphone in faebook

What you need to do is contact your local service provider (e.g mine was Mobilicity) and then tell them that you're having trouble receiving a confirmation code from Facebook. They should be able to fix the problem, because I received my confirmation code right after.

(By the way, you can only use your cell phone number once, because you're only supposed to have one account, according to Facebook)

You could also use the calling option, and have Facebook call you to send you the verification code.

DON'T use your home phone number for these options, because if you need to verify your account again, they will automatically text you with the number you gave them and tell you to type in the confirmation code
Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile page.
Step 2Type your email address and Facebook password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Text a link to my phone." It may take up to five minutes to receive the text message from Facebook.
Step 4Type your Boost Mobile phone number into the text-field and click "Text link to my phone."
Step 5Open the SMS application on your Boost Mobile phone and open the text message sent to you by Facebook. Click the link provided in the text message. This link automatically directs your phone to download the Facebook application. Access the new application by going to your main apps menu and selecting the Facebook icon.
Get Facebook Mobile on Boost Standard Cellular Handset Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile download page.
Step 2Type your email address and password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Sign Up for Facebook Text Messages."
Step 4Select "Boost Mobile" from the drop-down menu and click "Next."
Step 5Activate your Boost cellular handset, open your SMS application and select the option to create a new SMS.
Step 6Address the SMS to "32665" and type "F" in the message field. Click "Send." Wait a couple of minutes for a reply. The reply contains a confirmation code.
Step 7Type the confirmation code into text-field and click "Confirm."
Step 8Configure your Facebook Mobile settings according to your preferences. For instance, if you want to update your Facebook status with text messages, click the "ON" button bellow "Texts are." If you want to receive text messages of certain friends' status updates, type their name in the text-field beside "Whose status updates should go to my phone." Once you are finished, click "Save Preferences."
Step 9Update your status by typing it into a new text-message and addressing it to "32665."

For over two years I have answered the phone only to have someone laugh or say nothing or make brief noises and hang up. Is there a way to type a brief code to get the senders phone number ? Since my wife...

On many phones, hit the MENU key; a menu reading MEDIA CENTER/MESSAGING/ CONTACTS/EMAIL/...RECENT CALLS should appear.
Use the UP and Down Arrows to go to RECENT CALLS. Hit the Ok (enter) key.
Another menu will appear that reads MISSED/RECEIVED/DIALED...
Use the UP and DOWN arrows to go to RECEIVED.
Hit the OK (enter) key, and you will see a listing of "who" called you.
If your cell phone is not so-equipped, contact the cell phone provider and ask for a listing of all incoming calls.
Good luck and God bless.

Text Messages ort Calls will not open

I would definitely reset the phone, unless you can find a way to clear the text messages out before it crashes to the Main Menu. My guess is that you have a corrupted text message in your inbox, and it is crashing the software.

Resetting the phone will wipe out all of the data on it, so make sure you back it up first. If you have the Motorola Phone Tools, you may also want to try accessing the text messages or updating the phone software through it first.

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!
