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.

I have a password lock on my black berry and whenever i try to enter my password in the password space, letters and numbers show up instead of the secrecy stars, and im on my 8/10 attempt and my passwords...


This is directly from RIM: Cause As a security feature, the BlackBerry device is designed to allow a maximum of 10 attempts by the BlackBerry device user to type the correct password. After the tenth attempt, if the correct password has not been typed, all data is erased from the BlackBerry device in order to discourage its theft or misuse. ------------------------------------------------- Resolution If you are certain that the password you are typing into the BlackBerry device is correct, please complete the following steps. 1. Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry device. Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text. 2. Instead of asterisks, the text you have been entering for the password will now show in plain text. Check to verify that it is correct. 3. If the password is still being rejected by your BlackBerry device as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed. A prompt will appear in Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry device. Type in your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry device. 4. If the password you have given is still rejected, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that has software version 4.0 or greater, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator and request that your password be reset for you.

Blackberry 7290 unlock proceedures


Hello.
I think I see your problem.
The 'mepd' must be uppercase. Hold the shift key down while typing in the MEPD.
Once you get into the area that shows what limitations are active or disabled, then you must use the Alt. Option key on the fare left third row of keys down. Holding the Alt. Options key, type MEP then release the Alt. Option key and press 2.
You should now be prompted to enter the unlock code. If not, start from where you had the last correct results. Also, If it will not work, back all the way out to the memo icon and try the keys you need to type to insure all of the keys are working and you are not fighting a temperamental key switch.
Good luck in your quest.
If you still need more help, just ask.

I can't dial out.


The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps
