    Question about bluetooth keyboard

    Advertisement



    hi. I've bought a bluetooth keyboard for my bb 7290 and, although it is working ok with english characters, I have a problem using it with greek characters: when I'm changing the language to greek, the keyboard keeps working with the english letters. So I cannot write in greek with the keyboard. What's wrong with it? Is there anything I can do? A tip? Any idea?
    Thanks

    Re: about bluetooth keyboard

    I tried syncing a mac bluetooth keyboard w/ my 7290 ( v 4.1 ) and it didn't acknowledge it. Is there any trick to getting a full keyboard working? That would make ssh'ing a lot easier! Or does one need a special bluetooth keyboard? Thanks T3st.

    I take that back, it will work with the apple keyboard. The trick is entering the pin in the BB first, then quickly ( < 3 sec ) enter the same pin into the apple keyboard and hit enter. took me 5 tries, but it worked. Thanks.
    btw - this link helped a lot:

    Re: about bluetooth keyboard

    Dang, I spoke too soon.

    It seems that ive synced with the keyboard, and when I type on the keyboard the keyboard name is bold, which means it is connected. However nothing happens when I try to type...

    Ive gone over the instructions here:
    http //blackberryforums.pinstack (dot) com/3810-how_set_up_connection_between_keyboard.html

    but I never see my keyboard under Options>Security Options>Application Permissions. Which the above post eludes to... Any suggestions?

    Its a lot easier than pulling the laptop out of the bag and getting it setup. I normally travel with a full sized keyboard. I'm as the kids use to say, old school.
