BlackBerry P.ayBook Mini Keyboard - problem with characters and symbols

[ Edited ]

I'm posting here because the link for PlayBook Accessories doesn't work!

 

I'm typing this with the very useful and quick BBPB Mini Keyboard.

 

The only trouble is I need to use the "pound sterling" symbol quite often and as usual the keyboard is biased toward the American market.

 

The help screen on my PB says to use the Alt Key and L and -.

 

OK - I'll try it - this is what I get:. l-

 

If I try using the alt key and shifting the l I get -l

 

So what am I doing wrong and what should I do?

If you hold your finger on the $ key for 2 seconds, do other symbols appear?

No it doesn't work.

 

I just get a dollar sign ($).  Doesn't matter how long I hold it.

 

If I switch off the Bluetooth connection and use the tablet keypad I can access the pound sterling sign fairly easily, but I don't want to keep doing that.  At any rate whats the point of having spent all this money on a dedicated keyboard?

 

I'll check your other reply regarding my WiFi connection in a minute and get back to you.
