    Question-Multi tap mode icon!

    Advertisement



    Hey what's up pin? Well here is my question, why is the Multi-tap mode icon stuck in the top right hand corner of the screen, slighty covering the "edge" indicator? It is kind of annoying, I am not running any kind of apps or anything, and the only way to make it go away is to click on the browser icon and then hit the end key, but after a few minutes, it pops back up again.

    Thanks for any replies

    Which icon is it? The ABC icon? You should be able to go to your menu and enable suretype. My pearl would do it every so often with the old OS. Hasn't happened since I updated.

    That occasionally happens to me. The way I get rid of it is to go into message compose, then menu, then "Enable SureType." That gets rid of it until it appears again in some arbitrary fashion.

    You can also try pressing and holding the "*" key for a few seconds, which is a shortcut to toggle Multi-tap that's available from any (well, most, I think) applications. I don't know if it will help in your situation, but it might be worth a try.

    I agree holding the "*" is going to be the quickest way to get rid of the ABC icon. Just beware that if you get rid of the ABC icon you will no longer be in multi-tap mode and will not be able to change it unless you repeat either of these methods.

    Doesn't work on my Pearl

    Pressing and holding * brings up the symbols list. Does multi-tap need to be enabled somewhere?

    Ppen notepad and go to the menu to enable multitap. Holding down my * key on the 8100 locks the keyboard
