symbols-toolbar keeps popping up when writing a text

Hi there,

I've got myself a Bold 9900 a few months ago as my first BlackBerry ever. I'm actually very delighted, everything seemed to work more than properly but now I've got a problem:
When writing a text, the symbols-toolbar (Do you know what I mean?) keeps pooping up which is very annoying.

Does anyone in here have an idea how to solve that?

Thank you very much in advance.

Can you please clarify what you mean by the symbols toolbar or post a screenshot here of what you are referring to?

Re: symbols-toolbar keeps popping up when writing a text

I am having the same issue. I will be typing a text message and the symbols screen pops up like I hit the symbol key. I am not sure if this is a hardware or software issue. I have done multiple battery pulls and the problem keeps happening.
