how do i get my pearl to stop highlighting text as i type it?

by lysistrata    Mar 26, 2008, 4:38 PM

did you know that when your blackberry runs out of memory, it just starts deleting all your text msgs and call history? my pearl stopped saving text msgs and missed calls yesterday; after a stint on the phone with a tech, and wiping my phone and restoring it, it's back to better.

question: among all my previous settings i've been able to restore, there's something that i can't seem to figure out: when i'm typing a message, the word highlights itself until i press the space key and move onto the next word. i find this extremely distracting and annoying. it is NOT the highlight button, i already tried that. anyone know how to turn this feature off? i've been through all the screen/keyboard options and can't seem to find it. the online FAQs are entirely unhelpful. any idears? thanks, interweb.
