What does "PT" mean?

All of a sudden I notice that when I go to type a message (SMS or BBM) there is a PT showing in the upper right hand corner and no matter what word I type it gets underlined like it is spelt wrong. I am sure something got pressed on my phone but I don't know what or how to fix it...anyone else know? And no.... I can't find my book lol

Hi Trinityz,


Alvinsingh1986 is right.  Your language is set to Portugese.  You can quickly change to any installed languages by pressing Alt+Enter.

Re: What does "PT" mean?

hello tracee, from your email I see you have nothing special on your Torch apart from the PT logo. Please read messages 2 & 3 of the current discussion, it will take you 4 seconds to change the PT to EN.
