BB Torch 9800 :: How To Show Virtual Keyboard On Screen Keyboard?


Just got my torch last night! yayyy! I did read in one of the threads there is a way to bring the virtual keyboard down by swiping up and down (I think). But when I do that, I always open the manage connections option. Can someone explain how to get it to show wo opening the physical keyboard?

BB Torch :: Virtual Keyboard Is Missing Keys
I have the torch 9800 and there appears to be a bug with the on screen keyboard. After viewing a few pdf files in RepligoReader 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 stilluse the keys, touchthe area where the keys are not displayedand 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 tothe Repligo Reader developerand the only way to resolve it is a hard reset or full device restart.

Nokia :: N97 On-screen Virtual Keyboard?
I am a big fan of nokia, and now I am using nokia n97.I think it has all the features i needed, but i was quite disappointed to see that n97 does not havemany differentoptions to write text as they were in5800, like i really wouldhave liked if n97 would have the samefull screen qwerty keyboard and the one's which could easily be used by the stylus.So, I would really appreciate if nokia adds these options in its latest updates for n97.Hope nokia will consider my idea.

BB Torch 9800 Smartphone :: Torch 9800 Security Lock - Slide Keyboard Each Time?
As an avid business crackberry fan (and business manager)for over 3 years, Iwas appalled to find that I would need to slide the keyboard out to enter my security code, especially when I would do it 50-100 times per day. As every other touchscreen phone on the market has a pattern unlock method, this is the single issue preventing from purchasing this phone(s) PLEASE ISSUE AN UPDATE/APP/PATCH anything to bring this vital security & efficiency issue up to par.

BB Torch :: Keyboard Malfunction On 9800?
The letter 'i' appears without a dot each time I type it in email, messenger and text messaging. As a result, I cannot send emails as the recipient address is not recognised.

I have rebooted several times and restored to an earlier date when I didn't have this problem, but to no avail.

BB 8830 WE :: 8830 - Cannot Type On A Virtual Keyboard On A Touch Screen
My 8830 is now falling apart, after being of great service for more than 2 years. I am with Verizon. I cannot figure out which blackberry to go to.

Here is my must-have list:

- Actual keyboard (I cannot type on a virtual keyboard on a touch screen).
- Worldwide coverage. i.e. at least as much coverage as with my current 8830+SIM card
- WiFi

Basically I am looking for something similar to 8830, but with WiFi being the only added feature.

BB Torch 9800 :: Better Keyboard Phone W/ Touchscreen?
I have been keeping recommending iPhone 4 to my girlfriend, who is going to get her Master degree from Columbia Univ and step into business world. And she said, "wow, it looks wonderful but too naive/childish for me".

And then I bought her the iPod Touch, just for casual use. (I would make Torch a great surprise since she always wants a Blackberry. Samsung sucks btw, we have had 3 Samsung phones and they are all crap - hardware-wise).

I love iPhone, but I could not live without a keyboard phone. Sorry Droid and iPhone fanboys, touchscreen just sucks for business users/ users mainly do texing and little cell-photo-taking.

If you are not a college boy, and you are a real businessman, I bet you would be as busy as me so 40% of your time is for emails/texting/notepad/calendar, 30% for phone calls, 20% or less for web browsing, and 10% for enjoying music when driving (or on subways while reading newspapers) and other multimedia functions.

And seriously, I only use my phone to take pictures of notes on whiteboard or product labels when I don't have a camera at hand. And if you really like taking photos, DSLR would do you good.

Do you really need a 800x600 display for texting?phone calls?. And how much do you rely on web browsing by cell phone? It's just for checking some information when you are outside.

Let's see what Torch does best from all kinds of reviews: Gizmo, Engadget, BGR, Crackberry....
1). Top notch keyboard - good for 40% of time texting/emails/notepad/calendar
2). Great call quality - good for another 30% of time, and no drop calls/death grips
3). WebKit Browser - enough for 20% of time web browsing - after all we all own laptops (you don't have one?)
4). Improved media experience - I am ok with just listening to music. I seldom watch videos on handheld devices - only nerds do it often.

Hence, the bottom line: is there any other good keyboard phone out there? (with a touch screen and not as ugly/huge as Droid)?

=) CPU is fine, Screen resolution is fine (I am really ok with texting and managing my business life with Bold's screen resolution).
After all, do you really spend 80% of your time on cell phone while you have friends and can do all the things on a computer?

BB Torch 9800 :: Reduced Portrait Keyboard
I was using the full on screen keyboard and actually getting use to it, lot's of mistakes made but I was still going with the flow. I read a post yesterday that suggested switching to the Reduced Keyboard.

It made all the difference, I type a million times faster!!!! No need for the slider keyboard.I recommend to everyone out there, at least give it a shot and see the difference if you aren't already doing it.

BB Torch :: 9800 Keyboard Has Stopped Working?
Recently my 9800 torch keyboard has stopped working it hasnt been exposed to water or anything. The touch screen is fine no problems at all i presumed that it had broken and that was that...then one morning my screen flashed black l(like it had been locked)and the keyboard started working then after 5 mins it stopped. This has happened for the past 3 mornings now so i thought it could poss be a software issue. I have rebooted my phone (bat pull) done a full wipe of everything and still no joy

My device version is v6.0.0.246 bundle 695 it says it is the latest software

BB Torch :: Physical Keyboard Not Working On New 9800
I got a new BB Torch 9800 a few days ago and the physical keyboard won;t work (and has never worked) when I slide it out. Does anyone know if there is a setting somewhere I need to activate, or is this likely to be a device fault? (By the way, I downloaded the latest software update and rebooted and took out the battery etc...) Everything else seems to work fine.

BB Torch :: 9800 - Keyboard And Buttons Not Functioning
I have had a torch since October 2010 and just in the last 2 days it has stopped responding when using the keyboard or buttons.

When I pull the battery and reboot, I can use the touch screen to unlock, and then can go in to any item. Example:open text, can scroll and find a test to view, tap it and open. I can then reply, forward delete with the screen options but once that is done I am now stuck in the text message. My only option is to pull the battery.

I can not make phone calls but can answer by sliding up the screen. When call is done I can not end just have to wait for other person to hang up.

I have checked for Water damage and there is none, the phone has not had a hard drop and the to sides are very solid (not loose).

BB Torch :: 9800 - Trackpad Not Working When Keyboard Opened
I have had my BB for about a month now and it was working fine. The trackpad is very responsive and when the unit is closed the track pad works great but about a week ago the trackpad stopped working when the keyboard slider was open, after a few swipes it would come back to life however now the problem is worsened to the point where the trackpad is unresponsive when the kb is opened but as soon as I slide the kb back the track pad comes to life, this is the second unit that I have had problems with in 30 days. I have tried all the standard stuff like pulling the battery for a few hrs and such.

Nokia :: N97 Virtual Keyboard
I have just had an automated call from my broadband supplier (which I wanted to take) on my N97 (running v20). At one point I was asked to press '1' - no virtual keybaord! When I opened up and used the Qwerty - yes I did remember to press the blue arrow first - and pressed 1, the automated system timed out and said there had not been a response. So, is there a short-cut to getting the virtual keyboard to display during an incoming call?
