There are some etiquette rules that users of TDDs must be aware of. For example, because of the inability to detect when a person has finished speaking, the term "Go Ahead" (GA) is used. Commonly used abbreviations: BRB - Be Right Back; CA - Communications assistant (another term for a relay operator); CU - See You (be seeing you). GA - Go Ahead; SK - Stop Keying; SKSK - Now hanging up; Q, QQ, QM - Question Mark (?); PLS - Please; RO - Relay Operator; OIC - Oh, I See; OPR - Operator; NBR - Number; TMW - Tomorrow; THX - Thanks; WRU - Who are You? (or Where are You?); XXXX - Xs are often used to indicate a typing error instead of backspacing.

Why are capital letters swearing to you never heard such rubbish before

learn e-mail and texting etiquette before you make a complete fool of yourself as upper case is termed abusive and swearing
in any case do you think that using capitals or upper case makes your statement any more informative or assertive
you obviously lack any manners at all but worse still you lack education
But then again I probably used words that you have never heard of before like etiquette and manners

This is a new feature in Samsung Phones called Etiquette Pause. If you turn over the phone the phone is temporarily muted. Its handy during meetings, in theater etc.

If you do not like it find a setting called Etiquette Pause in phone settings and disable it.

How do i delete message recipient from my sony ericsson phone G502 ?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
If I've understood your query well, you mean you want to delete the recent Message recipients, if this is the case follow this;
  • Just open the Write Message Option
  • Select New Text Message, as usual
  • Don't write anything, Just Continue
  • Now you will see the most recent recipient list
  • Just goto any recipient Name, and press the C button
  • You will see the Name will be deleted (Only from this list, not from the contacts)
  • If you want to delete all of them, just Press C on every recipient name one by one.
  • Press the back button few times, to come back to menu.

I hope this will clear the problem, if this was the case, Kindly do tell me if I haven't understood your query. It will be my pleasure helping you out.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

TTY/ TDD Phones Question

TTD/TTY devices use normal phone lines to communicate. An individual with a TTY/TDD can either communicate with another TTY/TDD device or can make a call to a standard telephone. In this case, the TTY/TDD device calls a live relay operator and the live relay operator communicates with both parties either with a TTY/TDD device or uses their normal human voice on a standard telephone. It is important to note that there are different protocols that can be used to communicate with TTY/TDD devices, however many newer TTY/TDD devices can handle a wide range of protocols and can even communicate directly from a personal computer using special software and a computer modem.
