numbers on key board

When I have to text and I have to input a series of numbers in a row I have to press the alt key every single time. Is their an easier way to enter numbers?

Re: numbers on key board


 It depends on your device aswell but on most, you should be able to hold ALT and press either the Left or Right SHIFT key.

One will be caps lock, the other will be number lock Smiley Wink


Hope that helps!

Re: numbers on key board

I was going to ask this same question, but found this great answer by using "search" prior to posting! What a great concept. On a Curve 9339, hold alt and press left Shift Key, then enter your string of numbers easily. Thank You, Thank You!!!!
