    Problems with Keys: When I tap key twice, first letter comes up twice

    Advertisement



    Hard to explain, but I have been having the following problem: I tap 1 twice to get the letter "r" or tap 3 twice to get "i" and instead I get "ee" or "uu" respectively. It happens 60% of the time for ALL keys. Not just one or two and there is no long pause between the taps, like you would do if you wanted the first letter to go twice.

    This problem started after I updated the Pearl Software a few months back.

    Any thoughts?

    Maybe it was placed on suretype when you updated and you just need to turn it back off.

    No, it was and is set on multi-tap. I even tried un-checking all the boxes in the Lanugage->Input Options settings window. Thanks though

    some of the recent OS's have multi-tap issues. someone will come along and explain more. as of now the only thing you can do is downgrade or live with it i think

    I'm not a multitap user, but from what I've read here, this bug has been around since the very first 4.2.1.x OS released (which was 4.2.1.66).

    Your best option is to revert to 4.2.0.
    4.2.0.67 is still offered by many many carriers worldwide, and is quite stable.
    4.2.0.73 was the last pre-4.2.1 OS and works fine too, though only ever made available by AT&T / Cingular.

    that's the common multitap bug. I'm one of those people who's used to multitap. Ever since I upgraded the OS from the one my phone came with, I've been getting pissed off by this bug. I switched to suretype and at least the bug doesn't affect that.

    I suggest switching to suretype for now... and when they fix it, you can go back to your multitap ways

    Thanks Guys. I switched to SureType but hate it. Although, it is much better than constantly going back and erasing the bugged out letters.

    *Anxious for the bug-fix*
