    Do you have multi-tap active? Is there an block with abc in the upper right hand corner of the screen? If so you may have to lower the keyboard timing. Check the Options|Screen/Keyboard|Key Rate setting.

    Try Rebooting, Pull the battery for 15 to 30 seconds. Let us know if that helps.

    It's a known issue for .101+ OS for 8100. There's no way to fix it. You can, however, roll back to older (before 101) OSes.

    I have an O2 unlocked Pearl on T-Mobile in the US (software version in my post) and I have the same problem - intermittently - it's annoying and I know of no way to fix it. Maybe a later software update will address it.

    (I guess the software version (4.2.1.93) is on my profile or somewhere - anyway, it's the latest O2 offers.)

    I had the same problem on my Verizon 8130. Luckily I spoke with someone in tech support that actually knew their stuff. They determined I was missing a language set in my BB that should have been preloaded and an update would solve but he also said I should not have to wait for an update and noted my account I went to the store that day and received a new handset maybe they will swap yours since it is a known ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Try using suretype and add words of other language into your custom word list. That should do the trick.
