Changing the Text Input Mode

When using your phone, you often need to enter text, such as when storing a name in your Contacts, creating your
personal greeting or scheduling events on your calendar. You can enter alphanumeric characters by using your
phone’s keypad.

Your phone has the following text input modes:

ABC: this mode allows you to enter letters by pressing the key labeled with the corresponding letter.

T9Ab: this mode allows you to enter words with only one keystroke per letter. The T9 mode automatically compares the series

of keystrokes you make with an internal linguistic dictionary to determine the most likely word, thus requiring fewer keystrokes
than the traditional ABC mode.

Numeric: this mode allows you to enter numbers. (Numeric displays on the external screen only).

Symbols: this mode allows you to enter symbols, such as punctuation marks.

Note: When you are in a field where you can enter characters, the text input mode indicator displays on the top right portion of

the screen.
