    Hello,

    This is an annoying problem and while its nothing catastrophic, it bugs me. I recently updated to .103 and then this morning to .109 and while everything else works great, the menu button brings up the "application switcher" instead of the menu.

    I don't see anywhere in the setup to change the mapping of that button, and it started after getting .103, and i was hoping that .109 would fix it. Sometimes if i push and hold, it will finally bring up the menu, sometimes not. Sometimes i have to hit it 7-8 times before it comes up. Anyone have similar issues or at least some ideas to make this annoying thing stop?

    Thanks!

    Well I guess you could try the old battery pull.

    There's also a newer OS that may help.

    I am seeing the same thing since going to .103 and then to .109. I usually have to hit the back key then hit the BB button again and possibly 3,4,5 times before it works.
    Any solutions?

    Thanks.

    So far a couple of battery pulls, and even all the rebooting that went along with upgrading from .103 to .109....

    Have you tried setting your key rate to a lower setting?

    I find the BB button just responds quicker. You only have to press it quickly for the menu. Any sort of pause brings up the app menu.

    Thats what i find anyways.

    As well, if you're in the browser and hit the back button, same thing. quick press to go back, but if you hesitate any bit it will exit out.

    Thanks kf6tac and Roscopcoletrain. Seems to have fixed it, and i didn't realize the menu button did that if held down.

    normal operation is a quick tap for menu, hold for app switcher. i experienced similar problems after i changed the tap interval down to 100 on OS .99 (have since upgraded to .109). i just learned the difference between a tap and hold at that speed since it seems to improved keyboard typing.
