Default ABC icon up top

Please Login to Remove!

I know this has been posted before but for the life of me I can't find it when I search. I search ABC and get a million results back.

How do I get that annoying little ABC icon off the top of my pearl? I already turned it off and on.

Default Thank you

You're a champion mate thank you, this happens to my BB8100 every time I reboot it after I uninstall or install something to it. Now I know how to get rid of it.

I get "num" in the top right corner of my 8100 on boot up. Just press the # key from the home screen and it goes away.

When you are in the part of the message where you are allowed to type hit the "menu" button and then scroll down to "enable suretype". If "suretype" is on it will say "enable multitap".

That should answer your question.

Ok,but I think I may have fixed it by going to options>language>CHANGED IT TO ENGLISH ONLY INSTEAD OF ENGLISH MULTITAP.

I think I fixed it. I went to options>>language>>ENABLED ENGLISH ONLY, instead of ENGLISH MULTITAP.

Thank you for the information. Using SureType is a pain, but that ABC icon always showing is an ever bigger pain!

Cheers!

If SureType is a pain then you are doing something wrong....
