Does your HTC Chacha have the Fn + @ bug?




The HTC Chacha is out and exclusive with Smart for the next month or so and we just found out one little bug with the keyboard — go see if you Fn + @ works normally.

It could be a software bug or something so we tried it with a couple of HTC Chacha we could get our hands on.

The “y” key has the “@” as alternate function, so when you press Fn + Y to key in the “@” sign, the “£” comes up instead. Could have been minor stuff but the “@” sign is frequently used considering this is the un-official FB phone.

Update: We found that Fn + P turns out to be the “@” key but that leaves out the tilde (~) again.

    I agree with abe regarding this one. Good thing I opted for Gallaxy Pro instead of this one.

    OT lang po sir abe.. ok lang ba mga android apps sa chacha.. i’ve heard that “some” apps don’t have a horizontal lock so instead tagilid siya sa fone.. is this true? kaC naman if ganito, weird naman tingnan.. salamat!

    this key-mapping problem is a minor bug which HTC could easily resolve with a software patch. Chacha users should inform HTC customer service so the proper patch comes out soon. If you can’t wait, you could search for a key-mapping third-party application on the market which hopefully solves the problem.

    It has something to do with the language and keyboard settings, maybe it was set to use EU as default keyboard.

      Yeah same with my phone, but that bit goes on and off for me! I comprimise for s with a z but with g and b (b directs me to internet) I can’t so I don’t know what to do :/

    • I`ve been having the same problem for a while now, but i found a genius way to fix it! Go to settings>applications, then enter the option called `Quick Launch`, where shortcuts are shown. There, you just touch the screen on the shortcut you want to remove, hold it for a few seconds, and that`s how you clear that shortcut. :)

    I called up customer service and they told me to do this:

    Would you please check with below settings to clear the shortcuts: homepage > menu > settings > applications > quick launch >

    you may try to press and hold the “g”short cut to clear

    press and hold the “s”short cut to clear messages shortcut

    and then it works. hope it helps.
