    What language do you have set as your primary input? If its English, I doubt there will be very many.

    all you need to do is type a letter, hold it down and scroll your wheel or trackball left or right. That will give you the accented letters.

    If you only have English installed on your BB though, you will not see the accented characters as described above.

    Hmmm, well then I stand corrected. The accents do not work on mine with only English installed...but I was referencing Texting only...not email. They do work when composing an email so I should have included that in my earlier post.

    just tried this and works on my 8130 (English only also - manually deleted all the other language cod files). They will not show up like suretype does with words. As you hold down the key and scroll the letter changes. Would be easier to pop up a list to scroll to like suretype offers with words but... better than nothing

    I believe that the SMS Standard limits the available characters to the lower 128 (0 - 127) AscII characters.

    Hey - just when you thought you knew all the little tricks on a BB you find out something new! I never knew you could do this. I bet there aren't many out there who know about it!!
