    Blackberry keeps going into Multitap mode

    Advertisement



    My Pearl keeps going into Multitap mode. Is there a hotkey that I am accidentally pressing that is causing this? Also, my phone no longer finds the contact when I try to spell out the person's name. Please help before I throw this phone out the window.

    Pressing and holding the star key in text mode switches modes from sure-type to multi-tap and back. I am bad about doing that when I don't carry it in my case. Should fix both issues. If not, pm me and I'll try to help more!

    Hey! Thanks! I did a battery pull and now I'm able to find contacts by just typing in their names again. But at least now I know how to switch back to Suretype.

    my gf's been having the same problem as well, maybe she's pressing and holding the button, gotta check. also, I noticed that when you go into the password keeper, even if you exit out of the program, it keeps your phone in the multi-tap mode.

    Thank goodness I read this! The star key also locks the key pad! So I'm guessing I've been switching to multitap myself and driving myself crazy!

    I had the same problem last week when I kept my bb in my back pocket.
