Question

How to Display the SIP (Soft Input Panel) Button On All Pages in Symbol Pocket Browser?

Facts

SIP button is not displayed on all pages in Symbol Pocket Browser. SIP Button needs to be added to all of the user’s web pages via a MetaTag, which is a very time consuming process.

Answer

An easier way to have the SIP button display on all pages would be to add an entry to the SIE/SPB.reg file.
  1.    Using ActiveSync explore the device and locate the SIE.reg or SPB.reg (depending of the version of Symbol Pocket Browser) in the \Application folder and move it to your PC.
  2.     Right Click on the file and choose Edit.
  3.     Add the following lines at the bottom of the file:
    •              [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Symbol\SymbolPB\Tags\SIPButton]
    •             "Show"=dword:0000000
  4.     Save the file.
  5.     Place the file back into the \Application folder on the device, overwriting the existing file.
  6.     Cold boot the Terminal.
Note
    All Devices running Symbol Pocket Browser version 1.1x.xx and 1.3x.xx
