    My LG UX260 is very slow when it comes to recognizing my text entries...I will type something and it takes a long time for the letter to show up..and if I type letters to fast it skips half of the letters...????

    I tried to cancel a picture message on my LG UX260 and the whole phone froze up. I put it in the charger to see if it would help and it charged the phone, but it is still frozen.

    I just got my LG ux260 6 days ago and I am almost ready to give it back. I did find that the texting was very slow only when the phone was set to vibrate or silent. I am tired of having to constantly delete my text messages since my last phone used to do it automatically. My biggest problem is when I take it off the charger and head out for the day I am lucky if I can get 12 hours of life before the battery dies!! All of my Motorola phones would go two days without having to charge them. I have my media card in too because I heard it would work better. I am SICK of this phone!

    my phone has now gone entirely insane. the qwerty keyboard doesn't work at all anymore, so i have to use the regular one. i dont mean to sound like a whiny snob, but it's SO much easier to text with the qwerty, so i'm annoyed. i dont like how the regular keyboard on this phone works, so i'm very frustrated. i thought for awhile that maybe my phone was water-damaged, but the little circle in the back isn't faded, so i dont see how it could be. my phone also does that where it is very slow to respond if it is on silent or vibrate. i dont know about you but i dont feel the need to turn my phone off and delete my texts and take the battery out.. that just seems like a lot of stupid work to me. and why should i have to??

    This is a joke! I had lg ux260 that was slow to recognize text on keyboard. it made me mad, that's why i got the phone, so i could use the keyboard and text more quickly. i took the phone to my cell company. they said the phone needed a software update. after the update the phone was WORSE than before. i went back to my cell company and they swapped my phone with a "refurbished phone" to fix the problem..... well, guess what.......... It's doing the exact same thing! i called LG and there isn't a thing that they are willing to do!

We have the same trouble with ours it only does it when it is in silent or vibrate. Then it will totally freeze up and have to shut the phone off. I have brought this problem to US Cellular were I bought the phone. They gave me a line about how you have to shut the phone off everyday for at least 30 mins and take the battery out once a day for at least 30 seconds then get rid of all your text messages because to many of them can cause your phone to freeze up. I told them will try for 1 week and how I felt it was a bunch of **** for one phone. They are saying they received an email about this and telling everyone the same thing. Bull, mad in Maine

My phone does the same. Sometimes it doesnt even text! It completely freezes up. So I have to turn it off and on again so the letters will type. Its getting pretty annoying.

I have the same problem with my phone. I got it about 2 months ago and now the sceen is going crazy and when I switch to the keyborad the screen turns and makes two different screens. Its wierd. Sorry I wasnt any help. Hope ur problem doesnt turn into the problem I have. good luck.

For the problem of it being slow to recognize it when you're typing, mine does that too..but only when my phone's on silent or i'm not sure why that would be a reason, but that's what it does.

I've got a LG Viewty and I want to block a certain number from sending me texts. I know you can block calls by putting them into a group and blocking it, but I can't seem to block texts. Help!

Unfortunately you can not block sms from specific users by putting them block list.
This can only be done at Service Provider level.

How to block unwanted Text messages?

go into call settings then common settings then call reject. I have given my unwanted number a group name and then blocked that group! Hope it works.There is also a service security thing in messaging which lets you set up trusted and untrusted lists. I am trying this also.

Phone not ringing from certain numbers

On many phones, and this sounds like one, you can assign entries in your phone book to different groups (e.g. friends, family, work, etc) - and then set the phone's ringtone (and other behaviours) depending on which group the caller's number has been assigned to. A starting point might be to investigate whether all the numbers which display this odd behaviour seem to come from the same group. If they do, then you need to have a good look at all the settings for that particular group. A.
