    Hey everyone,

    Has anyone come across this issue...

    Swiping up causes the keyboard to pop up?

    Example, on the lock screen, if you swipe up the keyboard pops up... and the screen is still locked.

    If you use 2 fingers to swipe yes.

    Two finger swipe down hides the keyboard, as does holding the space key down. Doing a single finger swipe to the left when inputting text deletes the last word, two fingers deletes two words, three fingers deletes three words etc. Single finger swipe down on the keyboard takes you to punctuation. Holding down on a letter brings up it's special characters. Holding the full stop/period key down brings up speach typing/dictating.

    I started a thread yesterday to ask this specfic question but only got the answer that a screen pops up. What happens when you type on the keyboard when in the lock screen?

    I find it harder to do the 2 finger swipe down to get rid of the keyboard when typing with my thumb.

    A Lot quicker in bbm and Texting at least just swipe down from the emotions key and bang no more keyboard!!

    Bloody genius these BB design teams!

    10. Swipe down on the keyboard for a single alternate character, like an exclamation point. Use the dedicated symbol key to enter multiple characters.

    ^^^^ Brilliant! I hated looking for the alt button to get the question mark symbol. This is so much easier and smarter.


    This thread just made me love the keyboard even more! It helped me address a few minor gripes, and little did I know there were solutions. shame on me.

    This awesome device, just got awesomer.
