    Heya everyone!

    I've been using my BlackBerry Passport for about 24 hours now. And I was wondering, are there shortcuts for the most used characters? If I swipe down on the keyboard it opens the special characters but the question mark for instance, isn't in there with a keyboard shortcut...

    Thanks!

    I got used from my Bold to have Q/# to change the mode into silent/vibrate and A/* to lock the device. So I added (or changed) these... I think that 'K' is the default to lock.
    Then I use the initials of my spouse's name as a short cut to call her on the mobile and "H" to call home.
    I don't use other shortcuts.

    I might have misunderstood the question!

    The question mark is already available in the virtual row, above the keys.

    Now I understood... this has been debated at the beginning when the Passport came out... many users wanted to type everything without touching the screen...
    I got used to it!

    I can type very fast on my Q10 (even without looking to the keys) and a bit slower on the Passport (a few typos, because the keys don't correspond)... but I started to type on the screen keys without looking, too, which made me happy. I longly hesitated between Passport and Classic because of this, but now I notice that this argument evaporates with my experience!

    Cheers!
