Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

What is the 123 symbol and why d

I have a 123 symbol in a box in the right hand corner of the screen of my Blackberry 8100, and I can't dial numbers, only letters. This has happened before and has always resolved mysteriously. I've searched the manual but can't find an answer.

    I'm having this issue too. I've hit the 'alt' key which switches from letters to numbers and back, but the box in the corner won't go away. Even if it's sitting on the 'number' symbol I still type letters - sometimes dupes!

Usually the 123 means that you are in numeric mode on the keypad depending on what program you are on when using the phone. There should be a button on the phone to change the keypad mode from numbers to letters.

Strange symbol on screen of my blackberry pearl


Generally rectangular box appears when you are in Roaming. After doing the Hardreset still if you are getting rectangular box in your handheld kindly walk into the nearest service center.
A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
I hope I was able to help you.
Thank you for using Fixya.

CAP is in the top right hand corner of my blackberry pearl 8100 and I cannot write a number to dial it. I can only dial a number from the address book.


In this case kindly Press the ALT key in your Handheld and the CAP will turn off from your Handheld and you will be able to Dial the number.
I hope I was able to help.
thankyou for using Fixya.

Typing on my blackberry


It sounds like you have alt or sym function on which is turning your inputs into numbers and symbols. You will have a logo in the upper right hand corner showing you which feature is activated. Turn it off.If you are unsure what I am referring to in turn turn press ALT twice and watch the logo in the upper corner, turn it off and do the same with SYM. You should be able to use your keyboard as normal now.

My phone when I press for automatic dialing it adds a 1 in front of the number and the call wont get completed but if i dialed the number manually it wont add the 1 and the call gets completed. Balckberry...


When you do your automatic dialing, does the number include the area code? ie. mine is 937 (937-xxx-xxxx)
If you don't have the area code put in with the rest of the number, that may be your problem. 1 is the country code for USA, so normally when you see a number that says +11234567890, its country code, area code, phone number.
+1(country)123(area code)4567890(phone number)
So anyway, the only thing I can think of is to put the area code in the phone numbers in your address book if they are not already there. Other than that, I dont know.
