I read the relevant parts of the Moment user guide but could find no mention of it. I am considering this phone, but need to be able to type accented letters in French such as

    Yes, if you HOLD one of the keys, you will get a sub-menu showing these letters that you can then pick. Good solution, actually.

    I tried to enter accented letters today while testing a demo phone at the local Sprint store, and it did not work. Pressing and holding keys did not pop up a list of additonal characters, whether on the onscreen keyboard or the hardware keyboard. Not sure whether this phone was broken or I was doing something wrong. The store guy couldn't get it to work either.

    I just tested this with my new Moment and it works fine, just hold the key down for a second or Two.

    Though I do seem to get more choices with some characters using the physical keyboard.
