Question

Cursor movement with touchscreen texting?

Have this phone and like it, but one issue driving me crazy. When writing a text on the touchscreen with the qwerty keyboard tucked in, is it possible to move the cursor left and right over typed words? There should be left, right, up and down arrow keys and I am baffled. Of course I can open the qwerty keyboard and move the cursor, but there are many times I'd like to write a text on the touchscreen without opening the keyboard. Thanks for any help!

Thank you pickySandy I did figure that out. Eh, it works so-so ... there's ample room for arrows to control cursor movement and I really wish they were available. Frankly I would prefer not a touchscreen but a keypad on the front (and the qwerty keyboard) but unfortunately right now such a phone is not available from StraightTalk as a "C" (Verizon towers) version -- the G versions are horrible service in my area.

I have the 505c and I don't believe you can do what you are asking.

I put my fingernail or pencil edge where I want to have the cursor.

Hope this helps!

This month we:
... bought $30. cards at Wal-Mart
... went online to "My Account"
... loaded card on RESERVE

Worked great and gave us the correct days, minutes, texts, and data.

Going to do this from now on and buy ahead.

Auto-Refill [with credit card] has additional charges, so be aware!

The phone boots up with tracfone as the splash screen, and it has prepaid submenu accessible from the touchscreen desktop where you can add airtime using a pin number. Beyond that I haven't actually tried to add airtime to the cell with other than straighttalk online account.

If you're asking if you can set it to 24 hour military time display, the answer is yes; I just did it to confirm. Mine is now on a 24 hour clock.

I'm assuming you are really asking what towers this phone runs off ... it is VERIZON.

If this is not your answer, LG is the manufacture of this ST phone.

Question

How do you "simply" turn the ringer volume down or off on this phone.

If you use the side volume buttons it only sets the speaker phone volume. Looked all through the manual and I cannot find a simple way to turn the ringer volume up and down and especially a quick way to turn the ringer volume off for meetings and such. Any help would be appreciated.

the side button operate the MASTER VOLUME and turn the volume from high to off. only if you touch the OFF/ON button next to the word speakerphone does it operate that. Or you can go to settings, sound profiles, master volume but you will get the same menu as the side buttons. so to answer your question... the side buttons are the fastest way and/or you can touch the volume bars once the screen pops up. hope this helps you out...
