I am using cingular 8525 with a Dopod_asia_wwe firmware. I found that some keys("." + key) on the keypad doesnt match with the OS's.

such as "." + W = @ instead of "!"

I tried to flash Australia's Jasjam version, same stuffs happened. Only when i used Cingular's firwmware I am able to get away with it.

Wonderring if there is anything i can solve this issue. e.g. key match by replacing some OS files?

also, dont forget to let the phone sit for a minute, or put it to sleep for 20 seconds before soft resetting, or hold down the power button and turn it off that way... if you dont do one of these then there is a good chance that your registry change wont save...
