    Pulling up the symbols key takes too long. For example when I click the symbol key followed immediately by the 'J' key, it will register a J instead of the desired '&' symbol. This is because I would have hit the J key before the symbol map has been recognized by the OS.

    Any other quick typers having issue with this?

    This is a small and completely fixable problem. Is there anywhere I can voice my concern and hopefully have BlackBerry look into this?

    What OS and Phone are you using? I use a passport, it is a bit of a pain for some like \. But not much we can do about it unfortunately outside of Silent Keys or other apps. But they still introduce an additional click step so it wouldn't help much I'm afraid.

    If using a Passport, swipe down on the physical keyboard, then hit the corresponding letter for the desired symbol. Works every time. Very responsive.

    Forgot to mention, I use a Classic on the latest OS. But this has been a problem with my earlier OS Q10 too.

    I can confirm this does not happen on the Q10 on 10.2.1, the special character is recognized instantly even though the animation lags behind a bit.

    I saw it happened only if the cursor is at the end of a word and the suggestions available. Works with efficiency with no lag otherwise.

    Good observation. I wonder if anything can be done so the lag doesn't exist even with the suggestions.

    Alain_A, Do you have predictive text on?

    Because it looks like that's the problem here. When there are suggestions up, it will lag a bit. Without it on, there is no lag.
