LG Dare locks while typing a text message.

My LG Dare locks while I'm typing a text message. (It does not reboot) The display blanks; I press any button and the display returns; I press the lock icon in the lower left corner and I can continue typing my text until the next time the phone locks. Has anyone experienced this problem with their LG Dare?

    thanks for the reply. my finger is NOT pressing the lock button as i type out a text message. if it were, the "key locked" message would display and it doesn't. the screen instantly fades to black (goes black, however you choose to word it) as i type out a text message, whether i use my finger or a stylus. verizon told me to turn the phone off & remove the battery for at least 25 seconds. i did that and in time the phone will start doing that same thing again. even re-programming the phone (*228, option 2) does not help. the phone will eventually lock up while typing a text message, even after performing the 2 fix-actions above.

    thanks for your input, rcirone203.
    i don't believe the issue is "auto lock". you stated, "What is happening is that the phone locks after so many seconds of inactivity."
    the only period of inactivity is the length of time it takes to spell out a word. there have been times when i am in the middle of spelling out a word and the phone will lock (the screen blanks out, i press any key and the screen reappears, and then i have to press the "lock" icon in the lower left corner and then i can finish my texting --- until it locks again).
    auto lock takes what, a minute or so to activate, yes? well, it doesn't take a minute, or so, for me to complete typing out a word. auto lock may be the problem, but not because of inactivity on my part.
    once again, thank you very much for your input.

You have to go into touch settings of the "settings and tools" menu and shut off "AUTO LOCK"
What is happening is that the phone locks after so many seconds of inactivity.

I thought I had this problem too, but then I realized I was pressing the lock on the side of the phone. When holding the phone sideways to get the full keyboard, the phone rests on my pinky fingers so I can type with my thumbs, and the lock button is right where my left pinky finger hits the phone. Very inconvenient, but you just have to be aware of it, maybe change the way you cradle the phone while texting.

I can't get my LG Dare to read out my text messages...Any clues?


While you're in the body of the text message you have received, look at the top of the screen. In the top right corner there is the home button, top left is the left arrow (to go backwards). Next to that arrow is a little face. Hit that and your messages will start being read by the phone.

What does this key do?


LF means line feed. This was a common key on typewriters. Now we just use the "Enter" or "Return" key.
Return meant the return of the carriage (the part on the typewriter that holds the paper and moves side to side as you type).

Basically, this just starts a new line for your text.

You can see this by typing a text message then add the LF and keep typing.
You can see the above text by scrolling with your finger.
