Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

LG Choc 8550

My son's lg8550 just started wigging out. He was trying to text and got to the second letter and it automatically sent. He tried this several times and it continued to keep sending each time. He rebooted and even tried taking the battery out for about 30 seconds. It then started scrolling thru numbers and started ringing without his touching it. Could this be a virus from a download or is there a programming solution that Verizon can help us with?

Before texting, you have to hit the bottom left button that has the asterisk on it 3x quickly to get to the regular alphabet. I don't know why. I had a hard time figuring this out also when I first got the phone. A neighbor 10 year old figured it out for me! ha ha

LG Rumor 2- deleting sent message contacts

THIS WORKS!! This will erase ALL phone numbers saved by text messaging. Go to tools and settings... Select settings.... Select more.... Select security.... Enter lock code, if you have not changed it, it is either 0000, or the last 4 numbers of your phone number... select erase reset... Select erase messages... Select yes. You have no saved numbers under text messaging if you followed these steps. My pleasure.
