Text Messaging not entering right letter.

by Richard Baratta
(Long Island, NY)

When creating a message, I enter the letter "M" on keypad, and it now shows the letter "O". This just started after having the phone for a while. How do I change to original setting?

Hi Richard,

Usually, when I hear something along these lines, I assume the phone is in predictive text mode. To make sure that's not it, you can create a new text message, move the cursor to the message field, select Options. Scroll down and select Input Method and make sure that Abc mode is checked and not T9 mode (predictive mode).

If that's not it, then, since you say you've had a phone a while, perhaps the phone's keypad buttons are worn out. Maybe the phone sometimes registers multiple presses when you press a key.

Hope this helps.
