    suretype acting strange

    Advertisement



    i think my pearl is failing as i see no info about this in the manual.

    it seems to be not allowing multiple key presses at the same time. also no holding down shift and making capital letters. i have to hit shift, release and then get one capital letter.

    one error is when typing numbers in a message while holding the bottom left key down and hitting number keys, it will only do one number at a time. so i have to hit the bottom left key, release, then push the number and repeat to enter multiple numbers. before i could just hold the bottom left key and type a succession of numbers. i am sure i am in suretype mode and not abc.

    also while in suretype mode, my pearl can only handle one button at a time, meaning if i am typing fast it is missing letters that i type. before, even if i was typing a bit fast it would not miss letters in this way.

    anyone know what is going on? or is it just breaking?

    thanks for the info

    Sounds Like Your Abusing Those Keys, But I Would Try A Battery Pull Like Red Dogg Said...

    yes, tried the battery pull out and waiting quite a few times. i do it every time mine starts acting a bit weird. could be it's taken too much typing possibly. it usually just ends up fixing itself. hmm. oh well, thanks for the help.
