    texting problems

    Advertisement



    i just purchased a blackberry 8100 pearl from someone and it was working fine except for the occasional freeze up and i was told to then update the software on it so i did that. Now when i try to text i cant do it as fast as before because it will mess each letter up ex. if i try to hit the i key it will type two u's instead. it is getting to be a real pain, thanks for all you help. -Steve

    Go into your auto text option and are what the previous owner may have saved and delete the unwanted ones. Hope this is of some help to you.

    Once you enable multitap in the message options (while you're in a mssg about to, press button left of trackball and scroll to enable suretype) I believe it stays mutlitap until you swith it back to suretype again.

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...g_systems.html and http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._software.html and http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...are_links.html should get you back to the old OS. This is a problem on newer OS's and using multitap. Only way to fix it is to go back to the old OS and deal with the bugs that may be there. It has been said before, but i agree, get used to suretype. It makes life easier and texting faster. Good luck. Post back with any other questions.

    Re: texting problems

    i like the idea of suretype but it involves too much thinking for me, i feel i can text faster with out sure type.... maybe i havent used it enough to make good judgement on it though. So when i downgrade my OS my multitap will be able to keep up with me again? thanks a lot eddie

    It should speed up the process when using multitap. Mu8ltitap started having issues for me when i went from 4.2.0.64 to 4.2.1.101. When i went back to .64 it was fine again and when i went to 4.2.1.107 same issue.

    As far as suretype goes it learns from you. So the more you use it the easier it gets. It will already know the words you use and context and put it in for you. Works for me.

    Once you start using it more you will become a lot faster. When I switched from my sidekick 3 I was pretty slow

    Try to change to the original ATT (dont know with other carriers) theme on the upgraded OS. Try another theme. Helps me with that issue.

    Re: texting problems

    there are lots of people out there who prefer multi tap... like me. When I first had the phone, it was fine, then when I upgraded to 107, it bugged.

    I would switch back to the old version but that version didn't have the autodim option and that pissed me off cuz I'd have a hard time seeing the screen at night when it stayed dim. I say i'll put up with the texting bug in 107 until they fix it.
