    if you press and hold the number key a small lock icon will appear on it and you can hit the numbers however many times you want. hit the lock again to disable. as to the text, i'm not sure. is there anything in the message?

    This is normal behavior. To get it to lock on the numbers (or symbols) hold that key down for a couple of seconds. That will lock it into the numbers (symbols) mode. Press the key again to release it back to the letters. 73

    anything with //brew in it is a push message from a Get It Now app from your old phone. what did you have installed on it?

    You also had Mobile Email. that message is a notification of a new email. you have to either reactivate your old phone and cancel mobile email from there. or get on the phone with tech support and see if they can cancel it for you.

    ah yea, I would call tech support then. if they cant remove it, you might have to reactivate your old phone to do it. i'm assuming they'd be smart enough to have some way to remove it on their end. that and you gotta find a rep smart enough to be able to do it

    lol no problem. i've seen similar issues where people were being billed for programs on old phones they'd deactivated. i had to look and see what the brew code meant though. vzw really needs to set up a better system that'll cancel apps if the esn of the phone is deactivated.

    you have to contact tech support. it has to do with get it now enabled devices. i had a get it now device before getting my storm. the get it now app was sending a text evrytime i would get an email on yahoo. the blackberry cant recognize the app so that is why you get the weird text. i called tech support and they stopped it.
