    Cingular 8800 typing question

    Advertisement



    Yeah, so I have noticed that there is a quirk (for lack of a better term) on my Cingular 8800 BB...

    When I'm typing a new text message, when I type the letter "a" by itself, the BB types the words "on on".

    WHAT HAVE I DONE???

    Is there a shortcut or something I have somehow disabled? How can I disable this?

    I have seen this on 3 different Cingular 8800's...

    Oh my GOSH, that's what it was. In autotext, it was set to type "on on" whenever I typed the "a". I have no idea how that got changed.

    Thanks so much for helping me so quickly.

    It's easy to change it if you accidentally hit Alt-Enter.

    Mine was doing the same thing so I edited the auto text....
    So by hitting Alt-Enter does this cause a change to the auto text?

    Mine was doing the same as well, I never noticed it before...I am not sure it was happening before. Maybe an extra language input got back onto the device? there were a couple other set off words/letters as well, but I got rid of them fairly fast.

    Alt Enter is the shortcut to change your input language. The first one in the list is Catalan and that's how you get "on on" when you type a. You can delete the autotext entry but you really should change your input language back as there's no telling how many other Catalan autotext entries exist.
