    Issue With Multitap Typing

    Advertisement



    Since I have downloaded a new software to my 8100 i have a problem with typing messages and emails. Using multitap I have to press the button twice to reach second letter, so just for example instead R I am getting two EE's or to get H I am getting 2G's. Then I have to go back and re-enter. I did not have this kind of problem before bb tech rep had me to download new software due to my audio issue. Please help, t mobile and bb support says this is my phone.

    It's a known issue with the newer software. No fix for it yet. So you will have to deal with it or switch to suretype. Sorry.

    Go into the menu and switch to multi tap. Right now it's set to suretype.

    or maybe not...Reddog's the expert!

    Again it is a known issue with Multi-Tap on the newer OSs. You will have to type slower or use SureType.

    Or try playing with the Key Rate Option under Options>Screen/Keyboard. Although I don't think it will help you much.

    No reddog it does not help much at all. This is not fair, they are trying to have me buy new phone. Another $300 these days is not fun to spend, especially my phone was working before no the old software.

    Lmao!I love SureType!!! I can't even multitap anymore. If I try to send a text with my son's LG phone it takes me forever!!! I have to keep erasing and retyping.

    Who is trying to make you buy a new phone?

    It will probably be resolved when a newer OS comes out. For the time being you're going to have to just adapt or try using suretype. Sorry but there is no resolution for this at the moment. You can downgrade to your previous OS that will be a temporary fix.
