114 Cannot Access Dial Pad on Phone Call?
I have 114 on my Verizon Storm and when I am in a phone call, I hit the button to access the dial pad and either get letters or blank keys. Anyone having the same problem and if so, does anyone know of a fix for this?
It's fun when you are calling a place that requires a dialed in response.

#6 and #7, that isn't how we should speak to or about people looking for some help.
Would it be nice if they knew a solution existed and thus did a search for it? Sure, but often times people find it more productive or hassle free to draw attention to their issues by dedicating a thread to their issues and their issues alone in hopes that someone will be nice enough to provide them a solution.
That is what a forum is for. Often times people go searching for a solution and then what may be a solution for someone else may not exactly help them or provide it in a context that they can understand.
A quick word of warning when doing these kinds of fixes, because it happened to me. Your blackberry messenger. Make sure to open up a text file or something and put down all the BlackBerry Pins of your contacts in BlackBerry Messenger as I lost those while doing these.BlackBerry Storm 9530 - Currently running OS version 126.96.36.199

even if they didn't know a solution existed, the FIRST thing a user should do is look at the active threads AND/OR search for key terms. The OP opened this thread with the terms "114" and "dial pad". A simple search for these words would have had a bunch of hits. It is general consensus at this time that copying the .109 keyboard files into the .114 directory BEFORE loading it does indeed work. The "trick" is that you have to copy the files before you load the .114 OS.
to address your "word of warning"... if you add the person's name and pin# as a contact, you can save yourself the hassle of having to reprogram them all back in. (For me) it works every time.

Welcome to forum posting. Get used to the same questions being repeated. If you don't want to answer...AGAIN... then dont
Note: The OP in the thread I quoted, never posted again.

edit: scratch that. I get what you were saying. I'm kind of disturbed that you would actually go back and search what I've posted... regardless of that apparent fact, Optimus was kind of chatising others for telling the OP to search. Not to call him out, but it's not like he added anything to the conversation either. Notice I didn't respond to the OP directly? I felt it wasn't necessary to mention - again - searching and/or how to get the info without creating a new thread, so my point to speak was directed at Optimus.
You say that ump-teen posts pointing out the mistake aren't necessary, but how about ump-teen threads about the same thing? Isn't it in the "forum rules and guidelines" sticky about searching first, then posting if you can't find anything?
In regards to the person not posting again- maybe they learned how to search and haven't needed to post anything? There is probably only one person who knows...

I edited my last post. you responded before I submitted.
edit: I'm done with yet another thread that's going to count for nothing at the end of the day.
OP - the answer has been given. do with it what you will. while I'm normally more helpful, I will apologize if you feel shat-upon for asking the same thing as however many others.

No offense taken, for the most part. It's not like I'm going to get all butthurt just because of it. Tuesday is St Patrick's Day, and while it's mostly known as a drinking holiday despite that it's not... whether you're Irish or not, have one on me.

I too had the same problem with the keypad after .114 I just went into the options menu screen/keyboard and changed from suretype to full keyboard and it fixed the dial pad for some reason.
Just my $.02
