One one of the bb boards, someone posted that T-Mobile is going to release an OS update on Aug. 13th, and that they will provide users with simple instructions on how to update their OS.
The following corrections/improvements were listed:
Daylight Savings Patch (DST2007) – The new software will now included the DST2007 Patch
Audio - 2-5 second incoming audio delay
ABC indicator stuck on home screen
Reboot problem when switch to a blue tooth headset while on phone
Disappearing/Missing Call logs, SMS, Email and MMS messages
myFaves empty/transparent icon
Keypad unlocks at will
Voice only customers will now have access to the Instant Messaging application
If you'll notice, the third item addresses this issue....
By the way, if you go into an area where you can enter text. and press the "SYMBLE" key and hold it, it will switch between multi tap and Suretype.
However, being you can't enter text from the Home Page, displaying the ABC icon is an obvious bug, and VERY annoying! It covers up important info for me....
