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.

Blackberry PIN not accepted with desktop Manager


I recently plugged in my blackberry via USB to my computer and received a request to enter my password. If the password was incorrect 10 times then my blackberry would automatically wipe the data.

I had placed a security code to access my blackberry such as: 4404
When I tried typing this code on the BB desktop manager..on my computer. The code was not accepted. i tried over an over, until i realized the blackberrys number key also has a letter key.

Thus instead of typing the numbers 4404 on my computer, i typed the equivalent letter on the 4 key. if 4 is G then i typed gg0g

It worked !!
