That is the same with the Galaxy S3 calculator - No percentage key unless you are landscape mode.
By the way, this is where the touchscreen really beats a physical keyboard in my opinion. With the large buttons, I usually use my calculator with my left hand and keep writing with my right.

To find the percentage of a number :
Example: find 10% of 100
100 * 0.10 = 10%
Example: find 110% of 100
100 * 1.10 = 110%
Example : find the percentage of a number from another number
(3/ 4) * 100 = 75%
Not ideal, but hope that helps

ok that baffles me, I rarely ever use a calculator (i'm pretty good at math in the head lol) but i checked it out myself and sure enough, unless you go into the tip calculator, no % sign...Living the world of Blackberry and a fan of the comeback!

For those of you looking for percent- in calculator, swipe down from the top - Tip Calculator, and unit converter as well as standard calculator. Found this as I was playing with it reading this thread.
also, while in landscape you get a scientific calculator as well as the unit conversion and tip calculator. There is no actual % button tho. But the tip calculator is really quite convenient.

Maybe they suspect BB users are smart enough to know how to calculate without percentages done for them
I come from a time when we weren't ALLOWED calculators in school. I definitely use mine when I don't feel like doing math in my head though, to figure out tax and such...
That being said.... BB is one step up if they have the % key in landscape.. my Galaxy Nexus calculator doesn't have a % button even in landscape mode...

Just use 1.13 for 13% or 1.50 for 50%
So easy for example: 90.00 *1.13 = xxxxx
Just use what ever percentage you want after 1. And times it or add or divide or minus.

Hang on? Where is the % button in the calculator??
You do realize that to make something a % all you do is move the decimal 2 places right...like 15% is 0.15...all it did was move the decimal for you, kind of a useless button IMO...but maybe that is just me.
