This may be a stupid question but i have had a blackberry for quite sometime and i haven't been able to figure out if there is a way to type the cent symbol i can seem to find every other thing but just not that I've searched on google and all and haven't been able to find anything all help will be appreciated thanks in advanced
I dontknow if its the correct cent symbol, but I use.. when in a text or whatever, hit the sym key, then the symbol on mine is the one that corresponds with X.. the C with two lines on it, it may or may not be correct, but it works for me LOL and my recipients can figure it out LOL
That works for e-mail messages, but not for SMS messages. If you try to copy/paste the cent symbol into a text message, it just shows up as a question mark. It does work if you're composing an e-mail though.
Also here's a GREAT site with characters. All you have to do is click one, and it will be copied to the clipboard. I pasted several into an e-mail message and e-mailed it to myself so I would have those characters on my BB. Some of them did not show up, but many of them did (including the cent symbol). Check it out!
I cut & pasted the character set from Newsome to an Email to myself, then copied it to a memo. Alas, you can't use the cent symbol in an SMS. (It's a shame, too; it's quicker to type 69 than to type $0.69, and takes up fewer precious characters on an SMS.)
This is nuts. I have Googled and been all over the BlackBerry support site, to the Owners lounge and to the RIM support forum. There is no mention of how to enter a symbol. I referred to it as a sign, a symbol and a character. I used the word cent and the symbol itself. Nuttin', nada, zilch.
