I've got a problem with accents on my BB Q5, when I pressed a letter for seeing an accent, nothing happen.
Sometimes it works... But that's not often... I don't understand this problem and why it works sometimes, but if it doesn't work I need to restart my phone until it works...
I'm french so accents are very important. And that's not cool
Thank's so much for your answers

If you have French as one of your input languages, your phone will learn your typing patterns as you type. The more you type, the more precise the phone will predict your words. Typing a word once will not include it in the list of suggested words but typing it several times, especially in a pattern following certain other words, will ingrain it in the list.
My suggestion is to continue to type as you are and you'll soon see those words with accents appear more frequently as suggested words.

Yes but there is some words that my device doesn't recognize so I need to change my sentence...
And seriously that's not normal that I can't use accents... on all the device (iPhone...) you can use them...
I just want to use accents normally, sometimes accents appears and sometimes no...
It's cool there is an automatic correction, but that's not the question, if I want to put an accent at a moment, I can't !

Again, I must suggest that you just continue typing as you currently do, adding accents by holding down a letter for a second or two where required. I, too, use accents in my messages and if one doesn't appear in one message, I hold down the appropriate letter for a second and more often than not the accent will show up soon after I do that. It's a learning process for your phone and sometimes it takes a while.

Thank you for clarifying that. No, I didn't understand that from your original post and I apologize for missing that.
The ability to guess what you'll type next and suggest appropriate words is part of the BB10 OS. If you're not getting appropriate suggestions on a regular basis, there could be something wrong with the OS.
Swipe down from the top of your homescreen and select Settings>Language and Input>Input Language>Language Detection (ON). This will make sure that your phone is actually detecting that you're typing in one of your input languages. Also make sure that you have French as one of them.
Confirm that you have those settings.
