    Additional Keyboard Symbols--Help!!

    Advertisement



    Okay so I understand on the Pearl the ty key and im not sure what others have additional symbols in addtion to the letters. Like the copyright and trademark symbol. I can in no way get these symbols from the simple task of pressing the ty key and scrolling up down left right you name it. Am I missing something? Im on Suretype and my carrier is Sprint. Not sure if this has anything to do with it. Can someone help me? Or do I have a problem with my phone??
    Thanks!!!!

    well try different keys. Remember to HOLD that key while scrolling the trackball.

    The ER key will eventually give you the r with circle around it for registered trademark
    The AS has the upside down ? mark
    The CV key will offer you the c with a circle for copyright
    The JK key will give you the left curly bracket
    The L will give the right curly bracket

    Hope that helps you out...

    I was able to get both copyright and trademark symbols by the rolling method. Did you make sure to hold the key or did you just press it? I believe it only works with holding. I did a press & hold of the ty key and was able to roll left/right until I found the trademark symbol. Similar thing to the copyright symbol by press & hold of the cv key and rolling right.

    If you do this a lot, you can create an auto text for it. e.g. you can make tm be the trademark symbol, cr be the copyright symbol, etc.

    Edit: Cliff beat me to it!

    You don't need to hold alt or sym just hold down the letter key and roll your trackball.

    Yes because not all letters have different options. Try playing around with the ones Cliff mentioned above.

    Is your language set correctly? Mine is set to English (United States). When I roll left and right while holding a key down, it pops up a menu, and at the very right is a symbol EN for English.

    I'm not sure that the language is the issue - just a guess.

    I dont think the 8100 made from AT&T works with these symbols. I tried and tried...let me try on my old 7105.

    EDIT: It works with the 7105t from T-mobile, it doesn't work with the 8100c. Even thou I have a t-mobile OS on my phone, it still doesn't work...

    my OS is 4.2.1.103

    I dont get a pop up menu to change the language like that either. I have to go into the main menu and change the language there. And mine is set to English US.
    I hate being out the loop!!!!

    eta-i have sprint and my os v4.3.0.71
