Re: SMS destination phone number shows characters instead of numbers

Hi,

 

Please press the 'alt' key (third key in the extreme left corner) pressed and then press the required number key to input numbers instead of characters. For example, press the 'alt' key with the 'W' key to input number " 1 ".

If your query is resolved then please click on - 'Accept as Solution'
Thank You.

Hi, thank you so much for the reply.

 

We figured out the solution. Unlike the other blackberries, this one gives you "w" if you click "Alt + w" at SMS "To" field. But if you just click "w", it gives you "1". So problem solved.

 

Thank you again for the reply again.
