BB Torch :: Virtual Keyboard Is Missing Keys supportforums.blackberry.com

I have the torch 9800 and there appears to be a bug with the on screen keyboard. After viewing a few pdf files in Repligo Reader I went to compose an email. I noticed that the on screen virtual keyboard was missing the outlines around the individual keys and the alt, shift, language selection and delete keys are not displayed. Also the background of the keyboard is all gunmetal grey and the keys are white with no outlines as mentioned above. I can still use the keys, touch the area where the keys are not displayed and the functionality remains intact. This happens in both horizontal and vertical mode. If I change the vertical keyboard to compact mode in options the vertical keyboard is displayed normally. I have reproduced this issue, reported it to the Repligo Reader developer and the only way to resolve it is a hard reset or full device restart.

The buttons: dial, menu, return and on/off aren't working either.I have tried many things. Hard boot, master boot and a complete new installation of the OS.

Android :: Opening Software Keyboard On Flash 10.1? stackoverflow.com

I'm developing a mobile Flash application (not an AIR app) running in the browser. According to Adobe: Flash Player 10.1 provides support for use of native device virtual keyboards with TextField support if no physical keyboard is detected. A virtual keyboard is automatically raised and lowered in response to focus changes on text fields when editing text on mobile devices supporting a virtual keyboard to enable unobstructed and intuitive text editing. The focused text field is centered in the visible region of the page and appropriately zoomed/scrolled to ensure it is not obscured by the virtual keyboard. Upon screen rotation, incoming calls, or other system events,any already existing text input is retained.The virtual keyboard works with TextField but does not currently work with the Text Layout Framework or other Flash Text Engine text. I'm listening for a tap event (which works) that sets stage.focus = input; which also is working. However, the virtual keyboard is not triggered.I am testing on an HTC Evo.

BB Software :: Denies Access To Existing Accounts? supportforums.blackberry.com

I switched from a Blackberry Curve to a BB Torch 9800, transferring all data from the old to the new BB via the BB Desktop Manager. There were 4 internet mail accounts on the old BB, and icons for the same accounts are now present on the BB Torch 9800. Problems: (1) Even though there are the icons, I cannot send or receive e-mails on the BB from/on any of the four accounts. (2) So I went to the set-up icon, selected "e-mail accounts", the BB did the "connecting to e-mail settings", and a log-on page to existing user accounts appears, asking for user name (the e-mail address, presumably) and the respective password. But here is what I cannot resolve: No matter what I type in the user name field and the password field, the BB always says "The user name is invalid. A user name must be at least 4 characters". A blatantly absurd reaction, for none of my user names has so few characters.

BB Torch :: First Device Ever Is A 9810? supportforums.blackberry.com

I was so excited to have a Blackberry device and my choice was the Torch 9810 mainly for 3 reasons. 1- The big screen. 2- The touch screen with the sliding keyboard. 3- Latest OS. As I watched and read so many reviews about it and compared it to the Bold 9900 and the Torch 9860. The reviews for the Torch 9860 were somehow negative, and the sliding keyboard was a win over the Torch 9860. Bold seemed to be a good phone but the bigger screen was again what made me go for the Torch 9810. For a new Blackberry user like me, I couldn't really figure out much differences between the three phones. Unfortunately the Torch 9810 is not yet here in Egyptian market and I was about to buy a Bold 9900 till I noticed it would be locked to my carrier and then I changed my mind. I asked a family member to buy the Torch 9810 for me from the UAE and I finally got it one week ago.
