If I am searching an address book to send a message, the following occurs:
Lets say I'm trying to find the name David. After clicking the "compose SMS text", the address book appears as usual. If I try to type David, my phone displays 4avid... and does not come up with any results for "David".. if I use SHIFT+d, I get David...but still no results for "David".. Its as if the first problem causes the second, because if I switch screens then return to the screen with "David" typed in search, "David" will be found. This only happens for the first character, and not when writing a message, etc. I've tried every combination of alt, etc since it obviously seems like it is locked in for the first character input - but it is not.
This problem ONLY occurs on the 4/DF key. If I am trying to text Kristin and type "kristin", the name comes up without inputting a number as the first char instead..
I've tried batt pulls mainly - as that is usually first line defense on a BB...but no luck.
Also, if I am on the home screen, and push the buttons that would spell kristin, it searches "keustin". If I search Dad it finds "4ad"...if I search Jessica it finds Jessiva...... If I search Fred it finds 4114.......
Settings are on SureType when composing a message (I assume suretype is irrelevant when searching a number anyway...I think it just searches and includes all combos, correct?) And anyway...when it does switch from numers to text once keys outside of the numerical keys are depressed - the "jessica" example puts a v in when c would be the first "tap" anyway..
There are no apparent (to me) patterns - which is why I don't know how to type this without being confusing.
Going to try latest OS later today when I don't need the phone...I'm running the second to latest version currently which worked fine until last night. If that fails..I kinda doubt it's the OS..
Anyone have any ideas besides this?
