Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

Reset Symbol Recognition?

My LG enV appears to remember phrases or symbols that I've typed and will automatically. Like, if I type "=" my phone will automatically type "=)" and when I type "-" it goes "--can't help you there". Help! It's really annoying!

    I have the same problem. My $ becomes "$80", apparently because I sent $80 as part of a text message once. Just now, I had another occurrence where I sent "I40", and now the quotation mark symbol produces "I40".



    I was able to confirm that this strange symbol problem seems to only occur in the text messaging interface. I do not see this happen in the notepad, wireless email, or wireless chat.

This happens because you have your enV text entry mode set to "Word". Undoubtedly, you did this for the same reason I did - to get T9 mode working when you text from the front keypad with the phone CLOSED, instead of from the QWERTY keyboard with the phone OPEN.

If you go to Messages->Settings->ALL Msg->Entry Mode and set it to Abc instead of Word, your problem should go away.

Strange symbol appeared, battery life now much shorter


Yes! That's definately your bluetooth indicator. Btw, there should be an icon glossary. try setting and tools/phone info/icon glossary. As far as the BT indicator check your bluetooth menu and disable it, assuming you have no BT peripherals as evidenced by your lack of understanding regarding the BT icon and effects of peripheral hardware on battery life.

You may also wish to do a little research on crop circles. But try not to get too weirded out.

Typing * symbol


This is a problem with LG's T9 autocomplete database that affects other LG phones as well.

I have a solution, but it's not for the feint of heart. It requires BitPim (bitpim.org). BitPim is a great app that does a lot more than fix this problem. It can be used to backup the data (calendar, contacts, notes etc) on your fone onto your own computer as well. Be warned though, it's not very user-friendly and it can be a hassle to get it set up at first.

You can learn more about BitPim from here.

Anyway, assuming you have BitPim working and talking with your phone (don't ask me about this part, see the link above)

Open BitPim, and look through the phone's Filesystem. This selection isn't shown by default. On a mac (and probably PC too), go to the view menu, then select "View Filesystem". "Filesystem" with a brown drawer icon will appear in the left hand column of the main window.

After the data is loaded from your phone, scroll down to "t9udb" folder in the second column. In the pane that loads, right click on "t9udb_eng.dat" and delete it. Restart your phone and the problem will be gone, and you can go back to using T9.

You will lose your saved t9 autocompletes, but you'll also get rid of this bug temporarily. This is a recurring problem, so you might have to delete this file every once in awhile. One way I've found to prevent this problem is to always type a space after a symbol. IE To type out "$260", I would type $ - space - CLR - 2 - 6 - 0
As annoying as this is, using this method is better than having to deal with all the weirdness that happens through regular use.

Good luck
