    No suretype and ABC mode?!

    Advertisement



    So somehow i got out of suretype mode *THANK GOD!* and now im on a standard push the buttons for letters *1-"2" for T; 2- "2" for Y*. The only problem is that this really dumb ABC notification is ALWAYS on the top right of the screen, blocking webpages and the Service bars..anyway to remove/move it?

    Try going to Options/Language and making sure that the option for Input Language without multi-tap is the active one. I don't believe that you can move or remove it when in multi-tap mode.

    Hope this helps

    I just ran into this problem with the ABC stuck in the top right corner. I prefer the Multi-tap input over the Sure-Type. Anyway, I figured out how to get rid of the ABC image and keep the Multi-tap setting.

    Go to
    > options
    > Language
    > Change the Input Language to English (United States)
    > Save

    Then.. go back in and change the input language back to English (United States, Multi-tap), save and exit. That should do it.

    I also found, if you still see the ABC thing, you can open your address book and click on the # key to make it go away. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    thanks anthonyp20.

    Lost all text field menu options to enable suretype. Was thereby stuck in multitap mode. You suggestion seems to have fixed it.
