Samsung Galaxy S II :: Cannot Add Apostrophe To Any Words?
Oct 7, 2012
The entire time I've owned my S2 it has had a strange problem of not adding an apostrophe to any words, such as "don't" or "wouldn't". The only other galaxy I can check the message settings against is an S3 but everything is set up the same so is this just an S2 issue or am I missing something? It is highly annoying and even saving the correct words into the dictionary doesn't work.
I cannot find the apostrophe when I am in the browser mode on my Samsung delve! I have no problem finding it under "Symbols" when I'm texting, but it is nowhere to be found in the browser mode - not on the regular character keyboard, under Symbols, or anywhere else. It's hard to believe that they'll allow you to type emails without being able to use an apostrophe! People use contractions WAY too much and I'm the kind of person who likes to utilize proper punctuation.
Is there a way to remove the anoying apostrophes that gets automatically inserted by my BB when i type one letter in a txt msg followed by a space? Lets say i type:I would like to see a sample 1 please What will actually be displayed is:I'would like to see a'sample 1'please Here has to be a way to remove this!
I have a Samsung A950 and I can not seem to add any new words to the T9 dictionary. On all my other phones I was able to write a word in ABC mode and switch to T9 and it would be added to the dictionary. My 950 won't let me do that.
I have the new Samsung F490, and I was wondering if there is anyway to delete words from my T9 dictionary? I accidentally added jmj by accident because i was typing lol. anyways, long story short is there anyway to reset the T9 dictionary? I don't care if i lose all the words i have already added, i can always re-add them.
I have a SGH-D807 that I REALLY need to get fixed. I am in the middle of a custody situation and have imperative info on my phone I need to get off.
Here is the thing, i have 2 folders I created on the phone that I dumped alot of text messages into. I THINK the texts are stored on the phone and not on the SIM, correct me if i am wrong but i think normal unsaved texts are on the SIM. The thing is, my screen is cracked and can only see like 10% of words. When I open those folders, i can vaguely see "move to sim" option but it is greyed out. Not sure why.
So, with that said, unless someone knows how to get those 2 folders off my phone, i have to change LCD screens. I havent found out how to do this yet. Is there someone I can take it to? Instructions somewhere? I thought about buying a used one off ebay and trying to piece them together.
im new to these fourums nice to be here , i have had a histoy with samsung phones, there my favorate make and design, and the G600 dosent disappointed,the only issue i have with it is the fact when im using T9 predictive text entry, and i try and spell a word that isnt in the dictionary it asks for a new word, so i add one , and then after a few texts have been sent it forgets the word completely!this is extremly stressfull , i cant use Abc (normal text) mode, to slow , i leke the feel of the flow with predictive, it seems like there are ether a preset amount of spaces for new words avalible about 5 or so i suspect.or im not doing something right, which cant see it being my fault that the phone looses words.is there any way to alter this? delete the current saved dictonary? Flash it to store its words somewhere else on the flash memory for example?
i thought that it might do just that, i thought there would be somewere in the phone where all words are stored , so i thought if i accesed that and altered it , or changed the destination of the folder to ether internal or external memory, and have a couple of low memory cards such as 128Mb, and have different words preset onto them , 1 for genaral text talk 1 for extreme text talk
I just got the T519 Trace (on T-Mobile). I'm having problems adding words to the dictionary when texting, and wonder if anyone else has run into this problem.I am in T9 mode, and I try to type the word I want, but it doesn't exist. So I cycle through the choices with the * button, until after the last option, the left soft button turns into "Add". So I click on "Add", and spell out the word in the Add Word window, hit OK, and the word shows up in my message.But it doesn't remember the word! So I have to do this every time I need the word.
I can do ringtones and images with bit pim... Though i feel like im missing out...i read about free wap.... does that mean i don't have to pay VZ when i use the internet? if there is provide a link to what free wap means....Is there a way to get games besides "get it now" and i'm sorry if this has been brought up. Is there a way to add words when texting, like proper names or made up words (i make them my self) I went to another forums and they talk about 16 digit codes what is that all about?
This was working until yesterday. Now every time I try to save a new word it won't do it. It also deleted all my old words. I have type it in manually every time. Very Annoying cause ya know how we like to add a little personality to our txts. I've reset the phone settings, cleaned the SIM, no luck.
As in the thread title, the phone is not remembering any words added to the dictionary. I'm pretty sure they stay in the memory for a short time, but I've had to add the same words many many times.Firmware is G600XEGL1 I have noticed a few other people are having similar problems but there doesn't seem to be any solutions. Anybody have any ideas?It is very infuriating.
not much difference in the galaxy family that i can imagine (although i haven't dug around to know exactly) but besides the fact that there is no where to place the stylus on the S2, will the stylus or "S - Pen" as i've read it called work with the phones? or is there something more technical involved that will not allow this to work? and if it does work, where do you buy one (or two or three as replacements) ;-)
My Galaxy S II has the annoying habit of having its screen go into idle or sleep mode and then blacken when I'm on a call. I want to have the "Phone" screen showing up at all times when I'm on a call, so I can access the speakerphone, etc. Is there a way to "lock" the screen in "Phone" mode when I'm on a call?
It looks like the SGH T609 Dictionary can only store a limited amount of custom words. Does anyone know how to delete or change these words. I tried to reset the phone to default setting however the words are still there and I can't add anymore.
how I (in the simplest possible way) can use my pc as a secondary screen to my galaxy sII? I want my screen on the phone to be mirrored on the computor, so I can show (i.e.with a projector) my actions on the Samsung to an audience.
Just updated via Samsung Apps the camera firmware to a CDE11 or something version. Took 4 minutes to update and flash this firmware. I wonder what exactly it changed in the camera firmware? Hopefully improved things or bug fixes.I will test a few videos and see if the bitrate has changed or not.
I bought a nexus yesterday and have been unable to register it with the American samsung site (no options for us canadians there) not to mention the fact that after typing in my serial the site says my handset was manufactured 1/31/1993!
On the canadian site which i have all my other samsung products registered, there is no listing for my model number (GT-I9250TSDTLS (this is whats on the box, phone menu just lists my model as Samsung Galaxy Nexus, though the label under that battery shows GT-I9250M as the model number..how am I supposed to register my phone?[URL]..shows that galaxy owners can get a free copy of angry birds space... how do I get that?
Word on the street is that there may be a refreshed Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming. I wasrReading over at Android and Me and this thread caught my attention:The rumors state that there is going to be a refreshed camera. Possibly along the way of 8.0MP. On top of that, the processors are scheduled to be refreshed using The faster SGX544 GPU is included with Texas Instruments upcoming OMAP4470 processor. This is the successor to the original OMAP4460 found in the Galaxy Nexus, that includes the older SGX540 GPU.With the Sprint version of the Galaxy Nexus coming soon we'll have to wait and see if they are in fact getting a refreshed model or the LTE based model that Verizon has currently, Either way, I hope they do launch a refresh on the HSPA+ line as well. I use the Galaxy Nexus and while I love the phone, I wish the camera was better. Faster is always better as well so I'll take the processor bump.
I was thinking of buying the s2x telus version from craigslist. I was wondering if someone who bought the phone from telus sells me this phone, would I be able to enjoy the 1 year manufacturer warranty? I understand that the warranty starts when the phone is first bought. I'm just wondering if that warranty will be transferred to me under these scenerios?
1. If the seller had bought the phone from telus outright. a. If the seller has kept the original receipt and gives it to me. b. If the seller has lost the original receipt and does not provide me with it.
2. If the seller had bought the phone as an upgrade. a. if the seller has kept the original receipt and gives it to me. b. If the seller has lost the original receipt and does not provide me with it.
In case I do get to enjoy the warranty, will I be taking my phone to a telus store if it needs repair or will I send the phone directly to the manufacturer? I don't plan to use the phone with the telus network after I purchase it.
I just purchase my sg2 phone yesterday. Unfortunately, my brother has used my phone last night and register the Samsung account in it by using his email or id. When I tried to change the account, it cannot be done cause I have to do the factory reset in privacy setting (which will erase all my personal info and downloaded applications). I don't want that to happen as well. Plus, my my brother can't even remember what the password he has used for the Samsung account I'm very pissed off now that my Samsung account belong to him and the fact that I can't do the factory reset because of him. I'll mention again, he forgot the password he used for MY SAMSUNG ACCOUNT IN MY SG2.
Does anyone know if a version of the Galaxy S is going to be released with the AT&T 3g bands? I've heard AT&T is supposed to be receiving the Captivate, however, I have no interest in picking up a branded (and most likely crippled) phone. I wanted to purchase an unbranded and unlocked Galaxy S that supports AT&T 3g, but I search Google and the forums here and found no information about where to purchase one, or if one even exists. It shows on gsmarena.com that there is supposed to be a version of the Galaxy S with AT&T bands but I wanted to know if anyone has any information on where to purchase one or if one is actually going to be released and when.
i use Samsung galaxy s2 with the latest firmware version from Samsung kies (ginger bread 2.3.5) , the problem occurred after installing external SD card and move bunch of apps to it,i tried removing the external sd card from my device, the device stoped rebooting, when i insert it again the device keeps rebooting over and over, the problem is obviosley is moving apps to SD card, i tried to delete the content of the file (andro secure) in SD crad this file includes the moved applications from phone memory to external sd, the problem also stoped
its one of the two: 1- android do not accept lots of apps in external sd or 2- there is a problem in a specific app in external sd which make the phone rebooting over and over but i don't know which app is causing the issue because i have lots of apps installed !
