Default how to type in Pearl 9105 (non qwerty)?

Please Login to Remove!

hi, can anyone tell me how to type with Pearl 9105 (non qwerty)?

I've tried searching for it online but all the tips I've seen were for the qwerty ones.

Thanks in advance. Response would truly be appreciated!

thanks for the reply, tsac, but i think what you posted is for the other Blackberry models?


"To type an accented or special character, press and hold the letter key and slide your finger on the trackpad left or right. Click a selected character. For example, to type , press and hold 3 and slide your finger on the trackpad to the left until is highlighted. Click the trackpad. "


when i do press and hold 3 and use the trackpad, it will only show d,e,f,D,E,F, since the Pearl 9105 is a non-QWERTY phone.

I appreciate your reply still, tsac! i hope to hear from you again

Doing some reading at the RIM site, they indicate that a xxx8220;input language changexxx8221; may be the way to resolve this. RIM does not clearly state the 9105 has any problem with the suggestion I made above but I suspect the xxx8220;TrueTypexxx8221; keyboard may be the issue. If youxxx8217;re willing to try, a change to a different input language may help. I included the RIM document on the instructions.
