    Question Is It Possible for Keys to Click While Typing?

    Hi All,
    I've only had a 9850 for a few weeks and am wondering if there's any way to have the keys make some type of audible clicking response while typing, which I think would help with my typing on a virtual keypad. I understand that I can turn on a tone sound for all key strokes across using the entire phone, but I'm not wanting that. Rather, I'd like for the keys to give something more than just the pop-up letter indicator when I type a note and for that setting to be independent of what sound profile the phone is currently set on. I found this older thread (9860 Virtual Keyboard 'Vibrate'?) which sort of addresses the issue, but thought I'd ask directly to help confirm whether it's possible.

    Thanks ahead for any help.

    Yes, go to Options -> Typing and Language -> Keyboard. Then check the box to turn on Key Tone.

    ^ Right, I've seen and tried that option but it's not exactly what I'm after. I was hoping for something that would allow the keys to make a tone while all of the other keys stayed silent, including the menu key, back key, etc. With the tone option you mentioned, all of the other keys also make a sound when pressed. I suspect that what I'm looking for isn't available. It's not a huge deal, just something I'd prefer and was hoping for. Thanks, though.

    Unfortunately there is not. Only sound possible is the audible beep. I too had hoped for it. The new BB10's that hit the streets soon will have a click sound when typing. Enough people must have liked that and wished for it as well, for it to be possible on the new phones coming very soon

    I wish they would have added this option. I pretty much have the texting down with no problem. Once you get used to the Torch 9850/60 keyboard, it's really not that bad, for me anyway.
