My blackberry curve starting texting weird, i pressed 1 letter in a text and that letter plus 5 other letters would appear, til i got to the point i couldnt text at all. now its just went to screensaver...


Hi
seems like you have a problem with the keypad. may be a water damage or moisture damge keypad near the track pad. thats make your keypad malfunctioning and it just keep sensing like you keep pressing a key while even if you are not using your phone. you can try remove your battery and put in a bowl of rice for 1 day or you can try drying your phone with air dryer. if its still the same issue then you may have to clean your keypad contact. thanks.

    Wireless keyboard will not type numbers. Only the corresponding symbols will show up. The shift key is not down nor is it stuck down.


    Although Shift key is not pressed down, maybe the electronics are messed up due to shock if you dropped the keyboard. Turn off Caps Lock, go to text editor of your choice and try to type numbers together with some letters. If you get big letters, then Shift button is pressed down.

    In both cases, just to make sure, try your keyboard on some other computer and see if it works.

    If you find out that Shift button is always pressed, than it is a hardware problem that may or may not be fixable.

    To form a jumbled words


    Using VB as an example

    Dim intLength as Integer
    Dim y as Integer
    Dim arrOut( ) as String
    Dim TempLetter as String
    intLength=len(text1.text)
    ReDim arrOut(intLength)
    Randomize
    dim boolDone as boolean ' flag to track unfilled positions

    Write a loop that gets each letter from text1, then choose a random number from 1 to intLength

    Get the existing letter, then put it into a different position in the arrOut, based on the random number. If something is in that position, try again:

    for y=1 to intLength
    tempLetter = mid(text1.text,y,1)
    boolDone=false
    do while boolDone=false
    r =CInt(Int((y * Rnd()) + 1)) 'Get random # from 1 to length
    if arrOut(r) ="" then 'see if spot has been used
    arrOut(r) = tempLetter
    boolDone = true
    end if
    loop
    next 'get next letter in text1

    text2.text=join(arrOut,"") ' concatenate arrOut, no delimiter.


    Hope that helps.
