By default, Vlingo filters words that some people may find offensive by replacing them with asterisks ('*****'). We don't do this to censor the words you've just said. Instead, it's to make sure that if Vlingo misunderstands some of your words and incorrectly returns something that you didn't actually say, it doesn't return anything that might offend some customers.
To turn content filtering off or on, open Vlingo and then follow the instructions for your phone:
- · BlackBerry: Click Vlingo Options, then set Content Filtering. Save your changes and exit.

- · Windows Mobile: Click Vlingo Options, then click General, then scroll to Profanity Filtering.
