Default Strange encoding issue

Please Login to Remove!

Running BES 4.0 Sp4 hf3... hope someone out there can help with this strange one...

A number of users are reporting that when they send alphanumeric pages from their handhelds (mix of 6/7/8xxx), the pagers do not show legible text in the body of the message; only scrambled upper and lowercase characters (i.e. VGv1Zh3kjhsdfioqwpoWnmxCnsssei.. etc.) - however, the subject line is still readible.

When the same alpha message is sent from their Outlook desktops to their pagers, the body text is fine, and can be read.

I tried this with my 7290 and experienced the same issue - went searching for encoding options on the handheld, but there do not appear to be any.

Any help would be appreciated!
