Hello, I just updated my droid eris today, and I am used to texting on the number keypad, without using T9. I am used to having to press the number 4, three times to get the letter "I" for example. I like the "1-2-3" method of texting. Before I updated, I could press a key on the left hand side of the pad that says "XT9" then below that it says "ABC". I prefer the "ABC" option. Before I updated, I could press that button and it would stay in the "ABC" setting all the time. Now it defaults back to "XT9" every time I close the text message. It's a pain to have to press that button every time I answer a text. I've messed with the settings and can't figure anything out. Can someone please help me?
