Day 2293 - STOP HELPING ME!
Maybe I am just plain DUMB, but I wish my smart phone wouldn't keep trying to HELP me all the time.
If I type something, it tries to GUESS what I am trying to type, and most of the time it is wrong.
I hit lots of wrong keys. One example - I turned my english into Chinese characters once.
I don't know all the menus yet, and sometimes I hit a key and see things like Emoticons (smiley faces) instead of letters and numbers.
If I search, it starts showing me results before I have stopped typing, meaning it shows me results by GUESS-ing what I am going to type. Given my non-stellar typing skills, it is frustrating.
Bottom line - DON'T HELP ME or I WILL UNPLUG YOU.
You should be able to change the setting on there so it doesn't anticipate your typing. I can't remember what it's called, though. But if you call Verizon, they should be able to help. I like the help. Makes me type faster, but I don't love the autocorrect when it changes my words into something completely different and I don't NOTICE. Lots of funny texts sent that way. I think theres even a website devoted to funny autocorrects. :)Post a Comment
