    Hi all (and maybe some BB software developers),

    As Priv owners know, when you pull down the virtual keyboard there are two pages and it defaults to one that has a bunch of obscure and little-used symbols (the top blue dot). In order to get to the page that contains the numbers and also the commonly used symbols such as the question mark, parentheses, exclamation point, etc you have make an extra move to click on the bottom blue dot.

    This might seem like a minor point, but it is an unnecessary extra step that doesn't really make sense and could easily be corrected in the next software update.

    What's the general consensus about this?

    If you are using the virtual only, swiping down should give you the alt keyboard with numbers. Then the rarely used ones on the second alt keyboard. If you have the physical keyboard out, then the on screen keyboard shows the rarely used first and the common alt keys second. The reason is that the buttons on the primary alt keyboard are accessible via the physical keyboard. Does that explanation make any sense?

    BTW. You can swipe down again to go to the second alt keyboard. No need to hunt for the blue dot button.

    Note that you can also swipe down with two fingers at once to skip to the second page (at least after the December 14 update.)

    Cool, Mark. I didn't know about the two finger swipe. Now... any plans to put the ? ! and $ symbols back where they belong?
