    Admittedly not the most important question, but one that has bothered me since I picked up the first OS10 phone.....why no comma/place separation in the display? For example, 10,000 is displayed as 10000.

    Thank you for any thoughts.

    Maybe because in some countries/cultures the comma and the decimal point are used differently as delimiters. So to not favour one over the other, BB devs decided not to use either. Dunno, but I sure like that calculator!

    One of the Devs for the BB10 Calculator app team (yes there was a whole team involved lol) has actually posted here before. Maybe someone could tag him and he can give you a reason.

    Thank you. Well, I too like the calculator, except it is difficult to read the numbers when dealing with millions and billions. Conversion and other functions are also good. Just wish they had given the option of nothing, "," or "."

    Thank you. Well it would be interesting to learn the logic.
