    Turning the numbers on while emailing

    Advertisement



    Just a quick question...

    I need to know how to turn on the ability to type numbers permanately while typing an email...

    I don't mind holding down the key to type numbers, but I would really like to know if there's a way to turn it on permanately and then how to trun it off...

    ...if there's a way.


    Thanks.

    Since u are posting in the Curve forum... I'll assume that's your device...

    Just hit the Alt key and then the Shift key on the left... that will be a NUM lock for you -

    My bad! Just woke up. I happened to see it on the home page.
    That's the procedure. Thanks jscott for pointing that out. I think I need more coffee! LOL

    That was it! Thanks so much. I love this forum...all this information right at my fingetips. Much easier for me to talk to someone that uses the devices and knows them rather than a "customer care " rep at the company.

    Thanks again!

    Rule of thumb is that you press Alt and a key for whatever's on the top half of a key. It holds true for both of the shift keys. Alt-Left Shift is Num lock and Alt-Right Shift is Cap lock.

    It looks like Del and the $/speaker key are the exceptions though...

    Yup. I just couldn't figure it out. Thanks again.
