Thumbs down Issue entering "Lt." into address book

Please Login to Remove!


Last night I was trying to enter the contact information for a Lieutenant of Police, and I entered Lt. and when I tapped the space bar, the current time was entered. This happened with, or without inserting a period.

What is going on?

It's probably an autotext entry. Lt = Local Time.
Just backspace until it changes back to Lt. and hit the space bar again.

Lt. will output local time. to get around this, after typing Lt. press the delete key twice. It will revert back to lt and then add the period back.

This is part of the autotext feature, which can be found in options>autotext

or edit the entry in the autotext app if you never use LT for local time...
