    Take the battery out and put it back in and start up your phone and then try what GaryF just said. I did the same thing not too long ago.

    The ABC will go away once you enable SureType.
    And make sure you are hitting the menu key (the button to the left of the trackball) and not the trackball itself.

    Could be an Keyboard decoder hardware failure. How old is the device?
