View Full Version : Text is locked...HEEEEELLLLLPPP!

I searched for an answer to this and can't seem to find. My boss's 7100g seems to be locked in a "non-autotext" mode....it will only type single letters and does not attempt to spell out the words. Needless to say, he cannot type any emails on the thing.

It would seem that the SureType is turned off, but I cannot find out how that would even be done or a way to turn it back on. Any suggestions...will help me score major brownie points.

When composing a new message, press the * key for a few seconds. This will toggle between suretype and muti-tap mode. If that doesn't work, you click the track wheel and select enable sure type will composing a new message.

Don't know if you're just being a smart ass, but damn....if you have something for 9 months and never experience a problem like that it can be a real pain. I don't feel stupid about not know the * key answer (I do about not going into the menu on the messege screen and seeing the "enable Suretype" option...manuals are for wusses...where's your sense of adventure??)

Might of been some smart and a little ass in there :)

Well you gotta play with it a lot and only then break out the manul to see what you've missed :)
