    Hi BMD83 (I could not figure the best part of your username to use )

    The ABC icon means that Multi Tap is enabled. Go into a compose screen and hit the menu button and select Enable Suretype to eliminate this problem.

    Now...why do you want to "reset the whole phone"? This can be done uder Options -> Security->General - > Menu (button next to the pearl) -> Wipe Handheld ....but this will indeed wipe all your settings clean (no addresses, no email accounts, etc) Is this what you want?

    Hey GaryF,

    I tried the compose screen and my phone didnt show the 'Enable suretype' option

    I thought that reseting my phone was just gonna put everything back into default settings!!

    Thanks!!

    Ok...go to Compose and hit the menu button. Scroll down to ENABLE SURETYPE

    Wipe will put everything back to default settings but it will be as if you jsut took it out of the box. If this is your only issue no need to wipe!

    True. Don't wipe your BB just for that. Otherwise you risk deleting EVERYTHING! :-)
