    8110 Pearl: Texting can't get the "á" and other letters

    Advertisement



    Probably a noob question. When I type an sms i can't get the letter á or é. I can get an ŕ ou ä (and others) by pressing the letter and rolling the trackball. The language is set to portuguese and I can see the "ŕ" in the font selection screen. I am very confused.

    Thanks for helping

    You should be able to get it - depending on the letter, there are at least three to five characters/symbols per the key. You're rolling it more than one character, right? Just keep rolling the trackball until you see the desired letter and symbol. Do it slowly because one little movement will show you a different character! Does that make sense?

    I tried it very slowly, slowly, fast and still nothing... it seems to be some kind of other problem. It's weird because I can type ě, ŕ, č or ů but not í,á,é or ú.

    Thanks anyway

    What's the difference between ŕ and á? I have an 8130 and I just held the button and scrolled then let go and the letters stayed up there so I could choose the one I wanted.

    Well an ŕ is not the same as an á if you're portuguese or spanish. My 8110 pearl doesn't display those characters... i have all from the above except á, é, í, ó and ú. But as I said before i go to the menu where I can change the font type I can see all the symbols

    Copy those and save them in a message, and you can put them in your auto text for what they are.
