    Question why is mine switched to Multi-tap setting automatically sometimes?

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    I have an OS 4.2.0.64 (t-mobile USA). There are a couple of times my phone switches to the multi-tap mode automatically after I presses the "1" for my voice mail or in other instance I don't even know why it switches.

    I only use the phone for calling people (no text message)....and it just switches to that mode. To change it back to the Suretype mode I usually have to go into MemoPad and hold the "*" key. Is there any other way to switch from the home page?

    Do other users here see it switches the mode without your intention?

    Thanks.

    I haven't had that problem. I do find that there are several instances when the BB automatically uses multi tap, but it always reverts to sure-type afterwards. This is usually in password fields. The only thing I can think of is that you might be pressing a letter key instead of 0-9.

    Hope this helps

    I have had that done to me as well. But the time it changes, it has been while I am in the process of typing a text message!!!!!

    Thanks for your replies. This could be the 4.2.0.64 OS bug. My brother has the original OS 4.2.0.42 and I don't think he has this problem.

    It happens when you push a combination of keys or holding down certain keys sometimes by accident.

    I have that happen on occasion when I carry the Pearl without a case in my shirt pocket and when I reach in to grab it I do something and it comes out like that.
