How to Send a Text Message on a Verizon LG Phone

Sending text messages from your Verizon LG cell phone is one way to keep in contact with friends and family when you don’t have enough time for a call. It’s also a discreet way to send pertinent information—such as when you need to be picked up from a train station—when it would otherwise be rude to carry on a conversation.

Select the contacts you wish to text by clicking "Mark" and then click "Done" when everyone has been selected.

Click down until you are in the "Text" box. Type in the message you wish to send.
