    8100 glitch

    Advertisement



    I dont know how this happened, but it is annoying me. When pressing the ALT key, there is a little icon that shows up in the top right corner of the screen. It is an arrow point ing upwards or the letters ABC. This icon does not seem to go away. it stays on my phone completely covering the reception bar. I've tried rebooting the phone, and it's still there. HAs any one else ever had this issue? Thanks in advance for any help.

    What you can do is simply go to a text message and do a reply. Then from there, select your menu key and select ' Enable SureType'. That will get rid of it. It was on Multitap somehow if that did the trick.

    Re: 8100 glitch

    I had this problem until I upgraded to the latest 8100 OS available. That took care of that icon in the top right part of the screen. I currently have the 8100 OS version 4.2.0.89 for Cingular. Just delete the vendor.xml after installation before you upgrade your handset througth the BB Desktop software.

    Hope that helps!

    To fix that while its out there hold the star "*" key and roll your trackball to the left. That should do the trick.

    Actually, this is a small glitch. It usually happens after downloading something ota. The fix is simple. Go to any application that requires you to use letters and press the # key. Exit the app. The icon should be gone.

    He's got the CAPS button locked by accident. Not Multitap.

    Pressing and holding the * button while writing a text message did it. Thanks for the help guys.
