Text screen freezing problems

Okay so, for a while now, everytime i go to create a new message, my phone freezes, and i have to take out the battery and put it back in again to make it stop. i tried to upgrade my software from but it said it was already all up to date. everything on my phone works fine except for when i try to type message (oh and new dates in my calander). but also it kind of works if i change my texting options from abc1 to abc2. if it's abc2 i can type a message and i have managed to send a few. but most of the time it freezes after only a few characters. how can i fix this? i am thinking of doing master reset... but i dont want to lose all of my pictures! i really really dont. is there a way to save my pictures? aaah

Re: text screen freezing problems

Yeah i know what you're saying! my phone works fine, but it's just sending the texts is what freezes mine, and i dont want to lose my info. either. i wonder if there is a solution to fix this? my dad found that there is some setting configuration that will set the texting settings to normal or something, but he's working on that now, but i will keep posting updated information!

When I try to delete text messages it freezes the

open the back of the phone. take out the battery. You will see six hole for screws. The one to the right beside the battery should not be a screw. press it 2 or 3 times with something small. Reinsert battery it should show a reboot screen. I just tried it and all my data is still there. let me know if this works. seems to be a problem cropping up with several others as well.

LG chocolate flip freezing issue.

you could have a problem with your phone that needs repair or it could just be a bad battery.
I wowuld take it back to the provider or wherever you got it an tell them you want another phone, if they refuse ask if you can at least have a new battery.
Try the new battery and see if it corrects the problem.

My rizr z3 phone freezes while texting or typing anything. Have to remove battery to get it to come back on.

The problem is autocomplete.. disable it and the text messaging will stop freezing. Just go into the same screen as if you're about to type up a text. Then follow these menu prompts "Options>Text Setup>Word Completion (Off)" That should help.

Text freezes

I dont no of this problem and dont really have a official suggestion but .. if you restore factory settings there is a strong chance it will repair it , you can acces factory settings on settings , . the code for it will either be 1234 or 12345 or something along the lines of that,.
