Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Hi- the keypad to my phone doesn't register every button...so basically I can't text anymore. My son dropped some water on the phone and I'm not eligible for a replacement. I took it to the Sprint store but they wouldn't even look at it since they are not servicing my phone. I'm willing to pay for repairs but I don't know where to go since the only place I was told I could go turned me and my phone away :< help!

Hello,

what you need to do to fix up the problem is to take the phone to a very good phone technician around your local area for service the phone will need some servicing to come up again.

But if you can do this your self you will need the basic tool for phone service .then follow this instruction to do the fix up your self .

Carefully unscrew the screws if any (open ) the casing of the phone then locate the keypad remove it carefully then clean up the panel very well with care without disconnection on the flex (power connector to the screen) after all these then couple it back to there position .

with this the problem of the keypad is solve please rate this if it help in any way.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

How do i get numbers up in text on my alcatel ot-355


hi clarissa1112 This is an older phone. That uses an keypad where you have to hit the button until it turns into the number. Now you may want to check your menu to see if you have an option to change to numbers. This can be a little time consuming while sending text messages. This is a phone that is based on the older system. It isn't a bad phone. Let me say that a lot of people have older base technology phones. So it doesn't do everything that some of the newer phones do. The carriers are going with the iphones,blackberries and the androids.Good fortune with your phone and hope this helps.

My blackberry curve starting texting weird, i pressed 1 letter in a text and that letter plus 5 other letters would appear, til i got to the point i couldnt text at all. now its just went to screensaver...


Hi
seems like you have a problem with the keypad. may be a water damage or moisture damge keypad near the track pad. thats make your keypad malfunctioning and it just keep sensing like you keep pressing a key while even if you are not using your phone. you can try remove your battery and put in a bowl of rice for 1 day or you can try drying your phone with air dryer. if its still the same issue then you may have to clean your keypad contact. thanks.

Texting on the LG Vantage/Glimmer via T9 on the keypad is so slow! How can I make it faster?


I had this problem too, it was so frustrating!! But now it works and texts fast!
What you do is go into your text entry settings, and where it says "Word Choice List", turn that off. That will make it text fast but you will no longer have the drop down list of word choices. The list is good to have and convenient but I would rather have it text fast instead! Now, to choose a new word while texting you push the 0 button on the keypad or the next button on the touch screen.

Phone dropped in water....789 keys not working


I'm sorry but those buttons are probably suffering from corrosion which is like rust in a car you can hide it but it is still there.

123 BUTTONS DON'T WORK ON MY SONY ERIKSON K750I


Try putting the phone in a very warm dry place, ay in the "Hot water cupboard" for a day or so and this may drive out any moisture that may be causing the problems, also shake the phone vigorously B4 you do so to try and dislodge any moisture. Or you could try disassembly and wiping the keypad contacts, perhaps there is still moisture there, or maybe it has shorted something else which is why ya gotta dry it out completely.
