SOURCE: how to delete a letter

it depends on your model number.
Usually you can delete a letter by hitting the clear key.
Usually you can change predictive text to standard by pressing and holding the 1 key, the * key or the # key.

Aswer is in the instructions, you can download off the internet.

http://support.t-mobile.com/knowbase/root/public/tm30114.pdf?&A2L.SERVICE=Manual&WT.srch=2&Result_Inq=answer&InqSource=TMO

1) Go to text entry screen (txt message screen)
2) Push the _ button at the very top middle of your phone.
3) The Message menu will open, go to Entry Setup and set your Primary Setup to TAP English.

This will fix your problem, I set my secondary Setup to Tap Extended.

I have just done this and have not given it a major examination, but I can send text messages now without any bother.

I have a motorola v545 and want to turn off the predictive text help!


Go to messages, new message, go to the menu(middle button) select entry options/method/settings, go to primary and select TAP English, go to Secondary and select None.
Text-Entry Methods:
iTAP - Lets you enter words using one key press per letter. The iTAP® method combines your key presses into common words and predicts each word as you enter it.
TAP - Lets you enter letters and numbers by pressing a key repeatedly to cycle through the letters and number on that particular key.
TAP Extended - Same as TAP, but cycles through additional special characters and symbols as you repeatedly press a key.
Text-Entry Modes:
Primary - You can set your Primary entry mode to any iTAP or TAP entry method.
Secondary – You can set your Secondary entry mode to any iTAP or Tap entry method, or you can set it to None if you do not want a Secondary entry mode.
Numeric - Enter numbers by pressing the number keys.
Symbol - Enter symbols by pressing a key; its symbols are displayed at the bottom of the screen. Scroll to the desired symbol and then press Select.
To set the text-entry mode or method:
  • From a text-entry screen, press Options.
  • Scroll to and select Entry Setup or Text Setup.
  • Select the desired text-entry mode or method.
Tip: From any text entry-screen, you can quickly change your text-entry mode without leaving that screen. Press the # key repeatedly to cycle through the text-entry modes: Primary, Secondary, Numeric, and Symbol. With each press of the # key, the mode indicator in the upper left of the text-entry screen changes.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.

    I cant recieve my text messages using my sciphone i68


    first off need to know what cellular provider you are using, 2nd all text or picture text. regualar text is classified as SMS pic text is MMS. You may have a corrupt setting, but ill take a guess and post T Mobile setup. if you use someone else dont use these settings.

    SMS Messaging:
    1.) From the main screen tap the SMS Text icon.
    2.) Tap SMS on the Messages menu.
    3.) Tap SMS settings on the SMS menu.
    4.) Tap either SIM1 or SIM2 on the SMS settings menu, whichever SIM you are setting
    up at this time for SMS messaging.
    5.) Tap Profile settings on the SIM1(2) message settings menu.
    6.) Tap on any unused profile to select it, then tap the Edit button on the bottom of the
    screen.
    7.) You should be on the Profile name menu with the name field already highlighted. Go
    ahead and tap the Edit button at the bottom of the screen.
    8.) Tap in the following text between the quotes in the Profile name editor:
    “T-Mobile”
    Next tap the Options button at the bottom of the screen. Next tap the Done button.
    You should be back on the Profile name menu with the new name.
    9.) Tap the area below the profile name. The top of the menu should change to read SC
    address and the bottom of the screen should show a numeral keyboard.
    Tap in the following text between the quotes in the SC address editor:
    “+12063130004”
    Next tap the OK button at the bottom of the screen.
    10.) A Save? question box should pop up. Tap the Yes button at the bottom of the screen.
    You are done setting up SMS messaging for T-Mobile. You can continue
    to tap the Back button on the bottom of the screen until you exit out of all
    the menus to the main screen, or simply press the On/Off button once to
    get back to the main screen. At this point you can test SMS messaging by
    sending yourself a text message, or continue with other setup of the
    phone.
    MMS Messaging:
    1.) From the main screen tap the SMS Text icon.
    2.) Tap MMS on the Messages menu.
    3.) Tap MMS settings on the MMS menu.
    4.) Tap Server profile on the MMS settings menu.
    5.) Tap either SIM1 or SIM2 on the MMS settings menu, whichever SIM you are setting up
    at this time for MMS messaging.
    6.) Scroll down the list until you come to Profile 8. You can use any profile if need be, but
    profile 8 is usually the first not already filled.
    7.) Tap on Profile 8. Tap Edit profile.
    8.) Tap just below Rename profile, then tap on the Edit button at the bottom of the screen.
    9.) Clear the current text, then tap in the following text between the quotes
    “T-Mo MMS”
    Tap the Options button at the bottom of the screen.
    Tap the Done button.
    10.) Tap the area below Homepage, then tap on the Edit button at the
    bottom of the screen.
    11.) Clear the current text except for “HTTP://”, then tap in the
    following text between the quotes after the HTTP://
    “216.155.174.84/servlets/mms”
    Tap the Options button at the bottom of the screen.
    Tap the Done button.
    12.) Tap the area below Data account, then tap Select at the bottom of
    the screen.
    13.) Tap GPRS on the Data account menu.
    14.) Scroll down the list until you come to T-Mo MMS, the data account
    set up under the Data Account Services section. Tap on T-Mo MMS
    to select it.
    15.) Tap the area below Connection type, then tap Select at the bottom of
    the screen.
    16.) Tap on HTTP, then tap on OK at the bottom of the screen.
    17.) Tap the area below Proxy address, use the numeric keyboard at the
    bottom of the screen to tap in the following numbers,
    “216155165050”. The result should look like 216.155.165.050 under
    Proxy address.
    18.) Tap the area below Proxy port, use the numeric
    keyboard again to tap in the following numbers
    “8080” to replace the current 0 value. Then tap OK.
    19.) The areas under both User name & Password should
    remain BLANK. If they are not blank, select each,
    and Edit them by clearing all text.
    20.) Next tap the Done button at the bottom of the screen.
    21.) A Save? question box should pop up. Tap the Yes
    button at the bottom of the screen.
    22.) Tap the Activate profile button on the T-Mo MMS menu screen, and you should be
    taken back to the Select profile screen where a big green check mark will be beside the
    newly saved T-Mo MMS profile.
