    I just got my new Passport from shopblackberry.com with the German QWERTZ Keyboard.
    I just love this device and hope that after Dec31st I can still use Adroid-WhatsApp without too many drawbacks.

    However, I still have not figured out how to change the software setting to QWERTZ. No matter if I change the keyboard language to German or anything else, I still get the 'Y' when I press 'Z'.

    Any ideas? Any German users here that have the correct setting?

    Try:
    1. Settings/Language and Input/Input Languages
    2. Go to the Enabled Languages, is German listed?
    • If so, tap German and then change the Default Layout via the drop down to QWERTZ and then tap Make Default.
    • If German is not listed, tap Add/Remove Languages and Check mark German.

    Thanks! This is what I had already tried and it did not help.

    However, I got it solved: You have to change the keyboard layout for ALL installed languages to QWERTZ - German, English-US and English-UK.
    Everything was set on German, so this does not make a lot of sense to me. But nevermind.
