Default 123 in the corner of my Blackberry Pearl screen?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer for it. My BlackBerry Pearl 8100 is randomly showing 123 in the top right hand corner. I have no idea why its there or how to get rid of it.

I read via Google to hit the ALT key and then shift? But there only appears to be a ALT up/down arrow key.

Can someone help me out please?

Thanks

Is it where the signal strength meter would be? Perhaps your theme uses that to show signal strength?

Can you post a picture?

Sorry not got the phone to hand, its at home at the moment. But yes it where the Signal / battery meters are. But I'm using the O2 Zen theme and it didn't have anything like this before.

Typically that means you have Number Lock on. Pressing Alt + Left Shift will do that. Alt + right Shift will enable Caps Lock.

To remove it, simply press the Shift key.
