LG designed the Xenon cellphone with a touch-screen interface and an integrated keyboard. Most of the functions on the phone can be controlled using either input method. If the touch-screen on your Xenon has stopped working and you need to access your text messages, you can open the messaging feature using the keyboard. Operating the phone through the keyboard takes more time than using the touch-screen, but you can still send and receive text messages.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Slide open the LG Xenon to access the keyboard.

  2. 2

    Press the "Right Arrow" button until "Messaging" is highlighted. Press the "Enter" button, which is located to the right of the "Up Arrow" button.

  3. 3

    Highlight "Inbox" using the arrow buttons and press "Enter" to access your inbox.

  4. 4

    Push the "Up Arrow" or "Down Arrow" buttons to highlight the message you want to read and then press "Enter."

  5. 5

    Press the arrow buttons to highlight "Reply." Press "Enter" to open a blank text messaging screen.

  6. 6

    Type in your text message using the keyboard and press the "Send" button, which is located on the face of the LG Xenon; it is labelled with a green telephone handset.
