since the update as many others when i go to respond to a text there is always a few words already in the text box.  simple delete yes but annoying as hell.  is there any way to eliminate this from happening???????  any suggestions please

Re: thunderbolt texting issues, auto fill in

I checked my text message application to see if I could replicate the issue, and I couldn't. However it should be noted that I use a different keyboard application.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Re: thunderbolt texting issues, auto fill in


I've noticed the same pre-loaded text, but it's not for every recipient.

Other (initially) annoying thing, with ICS was the inability to turn off background data.  I don't like to get pushed mail, notifications, etc., as I prefer to manually query stuff so that state of my email, etc. doesn't change until I want it to, that way I can easily reference stuff (I work at a large company and get hundreds of email per day).

However, I did find out that I could set all of my accounts to manually sync, even turn off app notifications in Play Store (I'm sick of getting distracted by notifications for bloatware updates).

The only remaining annoyance I have is the HTC Wi-Fi toggle widget is no longer a toggle -- it brings up the Wi-Fi settings.  I'll let that one slide though because if it really mattered I'm sure I could replace it with a 3rd party widget.

So, I'm overall happy with ICS on my Thunderbolt, which I'm only saving anyways until the next HTC VZW Flagship phone comes with some form of 32Gb (or more) storage option.  I would have jumped at a DNA if it wasn't crippled with 16Gb.
