Unfortunately I've noticed that the ABC icon (white ABC on a grey background) keeps appearing on the top right and overwriting the antenna, EDGE, and signal strength display/icon.
Any suggestions how to stop this behaviour short of reflashing the Pearl? v. 126.96.36.199 on Platform 188.8.131.52 if that helps.
There have been reports, and I have experienced too, that the Pearl will switch to multi-tap mode as the default input method. Sometimes it's user error, meaning you pressed the sym key too long. Other times, it just switches on its own.
Yes, you can hit the symbol key to get back to suretype, but to get it back to SureType as the default mode, if it got switched:
Press trackball on the <Options> icon
press trackball on <language>
press trackball on <input language>
scroll and highlight <English(United States)>, press trackball [NOTE: or United Kingdom if applicable]
Press escape/return key [key to right of trackball with arrow on it]
Scroll to <save>
Press trackball to save setting.
