Entering Postal Code in Address Book

Bold 9700 - O.S. 5.0.0.344  (platform 5.1.0.96)

 

When entering a new contact the software will not allow me to enter a Canadian style alpha-numeric postal code -- in that field the keyboard is set to only use the number pad.  Even if i show the contact's country as canada the field does not change.

 

I can, however, enter contacts in Contact Manger in Outlook then synch the address book -- and the postal code shows up properly. 

 

A little glitch but frustrating...

 

Any clues anyone?

When entering the postal code press and hold the left shift key when entering the Alpha parts of the postal code.

Nope, doesn't work.  That field is frozen in the number lock position.  Can't enter letters - even when pressing left shift key.

Did you press and hold while typing the Alpha portion?, cause it worked on my 9700..

 

EDITED...

 

Err I meant to say left ALT key not the Shift key....

Ah, it works.  Many thanks, Sapper.  Press ALT key when entering letters in postal code field.

 

Cheers.
