Question German Characters

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I have a BB 8800 since a few months and I'm quite happy with it (works much more stable than the the E61 I used before).

Actuall I had no big troubles with it, only some setup issues for BB Maps (t-Mobile fixed the connection) and Map4all (seems that automatic selection of the connection is causing problems in Austrian T-Mobile networks. I had to Switch to HTML Mode).

But since the beginning I was wondering how to put german Characters (like , , , ) into messsages. The BB has no dedicated keys for those and the German manual does not mention it.
ACtually the problem are not the messages, as I can write ae, oe, .. etc. instead but in Nav4All or BB Maps I need that as I'm using the german version and when I don't have the exact zip code with me it does not accept the Englisch City names (like Munich instead of Mnchen) or the ae, oe, ... etc. versions.

Does anyone has a suggestion for me, how to do that (actually I don't want to switch to the english version of Nav4all as I don't know all the English names of German, Austrian and Swiss cities by hard )
