Default New TIM OS issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys since I upgraded to the new OS yesterday I have noticed an issue with multitap. for example if i want Y and the key is TY. I need to press it twice fast to get Y, but now sometimes when i do that it would just type TT. I have never had this issue just wondering if its software related.

Thanks

you might want to play around with the key rate under options... screen/keyboard and see if you can get it more to your liking.
can't hurt to give it a shot.

Happens to me here and there when it switches to multitap for password boxes.

Yep, password would be a bummer since it does not allow SureTyping. Boohoo...

Or you can use passwords that do not have T/Y in them and type via SureType the rest of the time... Actually, I might just do that...lol

yea it was random key strokes at random times. I'm also downgrading due to other small things. I do hope another carrier releases a 4.2.1.* OS soon. For now it will be .73
