    Yep, my daughter has gone through 3 of them since Christmas and now her 3rd one is locking up.

    Mine does the same thing - I have researched online and apparently this is very common! If anyone has a suggestion on how to fix this, other than repeatedly taking it back to verizon - please let me know!

I have the same problem. I took it back to the store and they made me call a troubleshoot place, who then told me it was easily fixed with the latest software. I went all the way back to the store only for them to tell me I had the latest software and all they could do way give me a new phone...which now has the same problem again!

send it to yourself and when you receive it and a text then go to optins and save it as a ringtone, that usually how it has to be done.

LG Venus

The Venus, as with just about all phones using the standard 12-button dial pad, use the # button, which is the bottom right button, as the default space button.

I'm going to guess that you're asking this because when you're texting and you try to use that button to insert a space the phone freezes, locks up or crashes completely. If that's the case, then you'll want to bring your phone into your local Verizon Wireless store to get the software updated. I believe it's software version v03 (might be v04....) that fixes that particular problem. You can check your software version by going into Setting & Tools > Phone Info > SW/HW Version.
