    Just to add a tiny side note - This will work for email & BBM but not in SMS (on 4.5 & below anyway).

    Depends on the character. Some don't havé vârěĺtĎöńs.
    Most do. And the platform should provide for the feature in Email, MMS, SMS, Tasks, Memo, Calendar, and any other prog that you may want to use your key pad

    Hmmm, what languages do you have installed? I have never been able to do special characters in SMS on any previous BB's I have owned. I have had English only on all devices.
