    SureType and changing letters

    Advertisement



    Alright, this is weird and I'm fiddled and can't figure out if it's possible to do.

    The CDMA VZW BB Pearl has this option that if you are texting and using suretype and you spell out a word that it doesn't know, you can take the trackball and scroll back to any letter of that work, and press the trackball and a drop down list with different letters appears and you can change it around vice versa.

    Is this possible on My 8100 Pearl Tmobile?

    Sweet! How on earth do I go about doing that though? I've searched everywhere on the phone and when I hit the trackball it says either 'Send, Save Draft, or Full menu'

    Hold down the ALT key and the trackball and scroll back to the letter you want to change. Or while you're typing, a list of word combinations comes up and you can scroll thru them using the trackball

    Doesn't work on my Pearl, If I hold the ALt key and hover over the letter its only going to Capitalize it. Any other suggestions on my Tmo 8100?

    Thanks

    Oh and yes, I have the latest software 4.2.1.107
