How to Change Text Modes on a Motorola RAZR


The Motorola RAZR feature phone supports four different text entry modes that you can use to create text messages. The four text modes are iTap, which attempts to predict the words you are writing as you type; tap mode, which allows you to enter text one letter at a time without the predictive text; a number entry mode; and a symbol entry mode. You can switch between the four text modes as you compose your text messages.

  • Press the "Message" key, which is the button with an envelope on it, located to the right of the "Right Arrow" button. The "Messaging" menu opens.

  • Push the "Down Arrow" button to highlight "Create Message" and then press the "Center" key -- it is in the middle of the four arrow buttons and has a dot on it.

  • Press the "Down Arrow" button to select "New Short Msg" and press the "Center" key. The text message screen will appear.

  • Push the "#" button on the Motorola RAZR keypad to switch between the four text-entry modes. The indicator symbol for the text entry mode, located in the top left corner of the screen and below the service bars, will change each time you press "#." A book symbol with a "1" or "2" in the left page indicates the phone is in iTap mode. A standalone "1" or "2" (with no book symbol) indicates tap mode. The reason both the iTap and tap methods have a "1" or "2" is because you can set the primary and secondary text entry method, according to your preferences. A "123" symbol indicates only numbers are entered when you type them, while the "@" symbol indicates only symbols are entered when you type them.

Tips & Warnings

  • To choose your primary and secondary text input mode, open a new text message and press the "Menu" key, which is located above the "Up Arrow" and is labeled with a "-" symbol. Highlight "Entry Setup" using the arrow buttons and press the "Center" key. Select "Primary" from the menu and choose "iTap" or "Tap." Repeat the process and select "Secondary" to also set that mode.
