If you are trying to enter (add) new words you need to type the word in mode "Abc" then put a sapce after the word, then you shift to T9 mode. I was having the same problem and found this solution burried in the T9 web site. This is different from my prior phone because I didn't have to enter the space.

Thank you for your inquiry. As I have checked here with my resources, You can add the AT word on your phone’s T9 Dictionary.
Once a word has been added, there are no options for deletion.

To add a word to the T9 predictive text dictionary follow the steps below:

1.While composing a text, picture or voice message in T9 Word press the left soft key to switch input modes
2.Select either alphabet mode, Abc (3) or ABC(4)
3.Press the keypad letter once, twice, three, or four times to enter the letters of the word
4.The next time a message is created in T9 mode, using the same numeric key sequence, the new word will be an optional word for the T9 keys entered

For more information on the T9 dictionary and its features, plus tutorials, please check the T9 website at http://www.t9.com

Technical Support

Greetings!

Pertaining to your query and upon checking the phone’s information the only way to answer the phone when you receive a call is by opening the phone. Aside from that we do not have any configurable options to change the setting of answering the call on the device.

It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Hi, I'm not sure if you've gotten your answer, but I had the same question a while back and figured it out. The icon you're referring to means you have a missed call. If you go to the Recent Calls part of the menu and click on "Missed calls," it should disappear from your phone's front menu (you may also need to click on the missed call itself - I can't remember).

We do not have that icon shown on the screenshot you have attached on the icon list of Samsung Convoy, however the closest one we have on the list is a telephone with 2 arrows at the right side of it (upper arrow pointing against the phone and lower arrow pointing towards the phone) and it indicates a data call in progress. You can also check out the icon glossary by going to the phone's settings : Menu > Settings & Tools > Memory > Phone Info > Icon Glossary
