German or French special characters on your BlackBerry
if you try to write in German or French, you will most likely try hard to find certain special characters like öäü for German and éèçàê etc. for French.
But hey it’s actually pretty easy. Just hold down the letter you want to write and while you hold it down, move your trackball up or down and select the special character you need.
For touchscreen BlackBerrys it’s even more easy. On the virtual keyboard, just highlight the letter, e.g. “e” and keep your finger on it a second longer. You will see the available special characters for this letter then.
