My Device: Torch 9850
My Carrier: Sprint

Character issue with passwords for email accounts on new Torch

Long time BB user/administrator, first time poster....


I have a new BB Torch 9850 on Sprint. I am the I.T. administrator for my company. I enterprise activated my BB and company email works.


When attempting to setup my Yahoo and Gmail accounts, I noticed that the Torch will not enter a space character even when you press "&%123" and then press "&%" to change the space bar from the "." (period) to "SPACE".  Even though it says "SPACE" when you press it all you get is a period "." character. 


No, the solution is not to remove the space character from my Yahoo and Gmail accounts. This is a bug in the OS/application that should be addressed.


Thank you.
