Default All the letters are messed up. Help

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to log type a message and the letters are all screwed up with no rhyme of reason. I can't even navigate to the help screens to do "wipe handheld" or go to the locked screen and enter the wrong password ten times. Is there anything I can do to reset the handheld and just reload everything?

Perhaps try a battery pull first. Wait 30 seconds and reinsert. If that doesn't fix it, then reloading your OS is indeed the only way to go.
