Default Chinese zhuyin input mapping, missing "xxx12581;"

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone knows where is the missing zhuyin phonetic "xxx12581;" (eng sound) in the keyboard mapping?

I just got a BlackBerry Bold from AT&T, and installed the latest EastAsia version of OS (9000jEastAsia_PBr4.6.0_rel298_PL4.0.0.157_A4.6.0. 167_AT&T.exe). Glad to see both simplified and traditional Chinese are supported. However, I could not find the subject missing phonetic.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Default Mystry solved

"xxx12581;" is the secondary phonetic under the "L" key, which has "xxx12580;" as the primary phonetic. You just need to double-hit the "L" key quickly to bring up "xxx12581;".

Another "difficulty" in finding it is that "xxx12581;", in BoPoMoFo input sequence, is never stand alone or the first phonetic of any combination. You need to enter anther phonetic first, e.g. "xxx12583;" under the "Y" key, then "xxx12581;" becomes selectable... quite tricky, isn't it.

you cannot install any device OS that isn't meant for the device.
