Default Updated software, now texting is on the fritz

Please Login to Remove!

I recently updated my Pearl's software to the following:

BlackBerry™ 8100
Wireless Handheld (EDGE)
v4.2.1.107 (Platform 2.3.0.83)
Cryptographic Kernel v3.8.4.34
MicroEdition Configuration: CLDC-1.1
MicroEdition Profile: MIDP-2.0
MicroEdition JTWI Version: 1.0
MicroEdition Media Version: 1.1
MicroEdition PIM Version: 1.0
MicroEdition File Version: 1.0

And now it is causing me headaches with my texting. I don't use suretype, instead I prefer the old fashioned way of punching in each letter... but with there's some sketchy about it now.

For example, when I try to type "y" I punch "t" twice, quickly in succession. Most of the time it works -- but now sometimes it'll come up "tt" instead. This happens with all such paired letters and it happens just frequently enough to be a royal pain.

Has anyone had this issue or would know how to solve it?

Many thanks

Did suretype maybe turn itself on after the update? If not I guess it must be a bug or something, I use suretype so I don't know what else you could try...sorry!

I would try adjusting the key input rate. Menu>Options>Screen/Keyboard> (Key Rate)

This is a known issue with multi-tap in OS 4.2.1. It's better in 4.2.1.107 but not totally fixed. You really want to use Suretype anyway. Read this thread:

suretype hate it, hate it -->Love it!!
