Missing Spell Checker

[ Edited ]

Hello.  Ever since I upgraded the BB software on my phone my spell checker function doesn't seem to exist.  When I misspell a work, it is no longer underlined in red to show me it's misspelled.  Pushing the menu button does not give me an option for a spell checker.


If I follow the limited information that I have found, from the Home screen or a folder, I should be able to go to Options>Typing and Input to check up on my spell checker.  I only have "Typing and Language" as and option and there is nothing concerning spell checker in that menu.


I have completed a factory reset and that did not do anything.


Please help.  This is driving me crazy.


Thank you.

Re: Missing Spell Checker

I've had the same issue and am looking for help. I've noticed that when you change the "Display Language" from English (US) (which I assume you're using) to say English (UK), a "Spell Check" option appears within the "Typing and Language" section, but there is never when it is under English (US).
