Re: Screen freezes when I type a new message

It seems like this is a firmware issue or conflict between the softwares or whatever your may have downloaded. You can repair it yourself, but be careful not to brick / kill your phone with wrong softwares.
Your local repair shop can help you too, if its under warranty bring to store to flash for free.

Why is my brand new Alcatel phone putting in strange symbols when I send a text if its more than 160 characters?

My Samsung cell phone limits me to 140 characters so this is not unheard of. I split my messages to under 140 and ask people who need to write a veritable epistle to do so by email because my phone cuts vital pieces when it chops messages up on receipt.

To disable predictive texting on Motorola V360:

  1. Select the "Texting," "Text Messaging" or similar option on the menu screen.
  2. Choose the "Text Options" or "Options" selection on the "Text Messaging" screen. Choose "New Message" or "New Msg" if no "Options" selection is available, then press the button associated with the "Options" selection found on the blank message screen.
  3. Select "Entry Mode" on the screen. A list of options appear.
  4. Select a non-iTap mode, such as "Symbols" or "abc2." Press "OK." The iTap entry mode is disabled.

I have a motorola v545 and want to turn off the predictive text help!

Go to messages, new message, go to the menu(middle button) select entry options/method/settings, go to primary and select TAP English, go to Secondary and select None.
Text-Entry Methods:
iTAP - Lets you enter words using one key press per letter. The iTAP® method combines your key presses into common words and predicts each word as you enter it.
TAP - Lets you enter letters and numbers by pressing a key repeatedly to cycle through the letters and number on that particular key.
TAP Extended - Same as TAP, but cycles through additional special characters and symbols as you repeatedly press a key.
Text-Entry Modes:
Primary - You can set your Primary entry mode to any iTAP or TAP entry method.
Secondary – You can set your Secondary entry mode to any iTAP or Tap entry method, or you can set it to None if you do not want a Secondary entry mode.
Numeric - Enter numbers by pressing the number keys.
Symbol - Enter symbols by pressing a key; its symbols are displayed at the bottom of the screen. Scroll to the desired symbol and then press Select.
To set the text-entry mode or method:
  • From a text-entry screen, press Options.
  • Scroll to and select Entry Setup or Text Setup.
  • Select the desired text-entry mode or method.
Tip: From any text entry-screen, you can quickly change your text-entry mode without leaving that screen. Press the # key repeatedly to cycle through the text-entry modes: Primary, Secondary, Numeric, and Symbol. With each press of the # key, the mode indicator in the upper left of the text-entry screen changes.

My krzr K1 phone freezes when I tyoe and hit key to finish...

This happens to all KRZR phones and there is no way around it. The KRZR has many software defects that Motorola will not fix because the phone is outdated. This shouldn't happen all the time, but it will probably happen a lot.

If you cant send a text at all, try a software upgrade.

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.

Unable to send or receive pic or text message

Is this an unlocked phone from another carrier? If so you need to call AT&T to download mms messaging, and Medianet so u can download games and such. Another thing to mention is, if it is from another carrier you may not be able to get games. My razr was from Cingular, I cracked the simlock (cingular refused to give me the key, none the less), cost me $10. I called my carrier (T-mobile) and they were more than happy to send the links to get my txt and web working. The only thing I can't get is games. Backgrounds and Ringtones download fine. Sorry, am babbling, Call your carrier, and I am sure they will send you the links to download txt and medianet. I looked on their site and can't find the links to help you.
