    I use my Blackberry Class in a professional setting. When I type an email that contains the word "voicemail" my BB replaces that word with a tape/spool-looking emoticon. Needless to say, I have to retype it two or three times to get it to stick as a word.

    The same thing happens when I type the word "fountain"--my BB replaces that word with a fountain icon. (Strangely, this happens only with the lower case version of the word. The voicemail problem happens both in lower case and capitalized versions).

    After typing this question, I tried capitalized "Mailbox" and lower case "mail". I get pictures for those too.

    When I type the word "facsimile" strange things sometimes happen (although not always). For some reason my "v" key becomes a paste hot key. I've double-checked that neither alt- or shift- are locked or activated. They are not.

    I'm sure I've accidentally messed up some setting. But I've scoured both this Board and the settings, and I can't figure out why this is happening. Any help would be appreciated.

    Wow. That's the weirdest thing I've ever heard.
    Check your word substitution settings, under input settings

    Mine did the weird word substitution thing just after I got it. I rebooted it and it hasn't done it since.

    All of a sudden I type "swords" (sans quotations) and get this ⚔ LOL... Random and my 1st and only experience with this thus far... I kinda am digging it though and that word is something I wouldn't use in a typical 'formal' situation anyways... I'll reboot and see if this clears it... (Nothing in my word substitutions to account for this and I have no emoji apps nor substitutions for emoji set on my Classic...)
