Default Wierd Problem - Symbols ETC

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

This is the second time this issue has happened to me. While in my pocket, some of the buttons must have been pressed, and now when I try to dial a number manually, the numbers will actually appear highlighted, and then as I dial, numbers will end up being doubled up.

Then, when I go in to write any text in a message or on notepad, each key I press appears as some wierd symbol characters.

Anyone run into this, and know how to fix it?

THanks!

That really doesn't make much sense, what do you mean highlighted, and what weird symbol is it showing? Is the ALT key depressed (an upward pointing arrow would be in the upper right hand corner of your screen)?

I figured out the problem.

#1..in terms of the numbers highlighting....it's as if you were to right click your mouse and drag your cursor over some text on your computer screen ready to copy/cut.

The problem was the language settings changed to the first one in the list.

Thanks for the update. So the real solution is to stop carrying the BlackBerry in your pocket or lock the keyboard if you must. Changing the input can occur automatically by pressing ALT + enter and that can occur in your pocket.
Good luck.

Thank you once again for the reply. Definately will start locking the keys when it's in my pocket. Sometimes I forget the belt case, so I have no choice...but will keep that in mind. Locking the keyboard will also stop calling people by accident as well...which has been happening a lot lately LOL

Cheers!
