Default Typing 'lt' into calendar/SMS problem

Please Login to Remove!

Folks,

Everytime I tried to type "lt" as a calendar entry or SMS text, it automatically changes into current time. This becomes a problem because my friend's nickname is lt - I'd rather not type his full name. Can anybody help?

BTW, this also happens on my wife's Pearl.

Cheers.

easy to fix...

goto options>autotext> scroll down to 'lt' and change the autotext to something else or just delete it.

lt = local time

you could substitute 'mt' (mytime). Just a thought

cheers

Thanks much. Autotext was the first thing that came to my mind. But I didn't find lt = local time. What I found was lt (%T).
