    changing texting modes...

    Advertisement



    i think my phone changes texting modes on its own. i dont know the hotkeys to change the modes, anyone care to fill me in?

    (i.e. right now my phone is typing in all caps, i cant turn it off; the other day it was typing in the mode where you type a letter and then use the trackball to select the letter q or w, e or r, t or y, etc... but then it switched to selecting the letter by the number of times you clicked the key, 1 click for q, 2 clicks for w, 1 click for e, 2 clicks for r, 1 click for t, 2 clicks for y, etc)

    any help would be appreciated, seems the learning curve on this thing is a little tricky

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    On the textin mode when you hit menu you can choose either "unable multi tab" which is the one you were talking about that you have to hit the number of times to get that letter or you could choose "unable suretype" this is the one that you hit ones and it gives you the the option of which letter you want to chose. Also try a battery pull to stop it from changing by it self.

    I used to love that shortcut [hold the star key for 3 sec], the ABC would appear in the top right corner.
    But after I upgraded my OS, it no longer works
