Spellcheck on the 8800

I have recently upgraded from the 8300 to the 8800 which does not appear  to have spell check. Can anyone  confirm if the 8800 does have this function and if so how do you switch it on. Thanks. Graeme Hay

Re: Spellcheck on the 8800

Hello and welcome to the support forums.


Can you check which version of the OS you're using. On the BlackBerry go into Options | About. Your OS version will be listed as v4.xx.x.xxx. The spell check feature is not available in OS versions 4.2.1 or earlier


If you are running a later OS try going into Options | Spell Check to configure the spell check options. Or you can look under Messages | Options to see if you have a spell check choice. Lastly if you're composing an email you can display the menu to see if you have a Check Spelling choice.
