How to use Text Link on the LG G2


The majority of us use SMS text messaging on a daily basis and sometimes we receive messages that include addresses, phone numbers, or date/time information. That’s why LG introduced Text Link with the G2. With Text Link, the G2 will recognize these types of texts and give you a link. If you tap on the link you will be given the opportunity to add the information directly to your calendar or view the address in Maps. It saves you the time of trying to copy and paste the info. Depending on the text, you will also be able to place a call, search the Web, add to a new Memo, add to contacts, or send an email. Hit the break for a quick video showing you how to utilize this function, and be sure to check out our other LG G2 guides.

      I want to know too. I just got this phone and well this is the only thing that gets on my nerves

        Just got the phone, that link thing is really annoying for some reason. While you are on your main messaging page that shows all your conversations, just click the “settings” button right next to the “home” button. Then click on “settings”. Scroll all the way down to “text link display” and uncheck the box. That should do it.

    Can someone explain me how to activate it?
    Or is it just available for the US?

    LG has impressed us with the G3 which comes in at under £500 but packs amazing features including that Quad HD and a camera with a laser auto focus. The device is surprisingly small considering the 5.5in display and we like the more premium design. It’s another winner from LG.

    How do I do this with the LG G3 with Verizon? It doesn’t seem to be working for me.
