    The same thing happens to me. It freezes after one word, or two when I'm trying to send a text message. This is so lame. I've only had this phone for a month. I always have to take the battery out. I can only send one-word replies. I'm about to take it in to the Verizon Store & see what they can do.

    It freezes when I hit the space button, or the arrow on the touch screen to start a new word.
    I'm so frustrated with it, I'm going to the Verizon store as soon as I can...
    I also have other problems with it, like the silver chipping off, freezing during the camera mode, touch screen acknowledging touches but not responding to them, the cover to the charger insert is loose- I'm afraid it will fall off.
    It's turning out to not be the amazing phone I thought it was.

My lg venus keeps freezing when i start texting and get about 2 words into the text

same here, i read to try taking the battery out for twenty minutes. if not take it to your nearest store, they should replace it for free or close to free. verizon is pretty good about things like that

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.
