Anyone having issues with the "
Never realised that there is no pound symbol :/ strange. Just had a look and can't find it anywhere.
It's got it on the physical KB, but when you press it you get a $. WTF?!
Where are you located? Are you sure you have your Mliestone set up as English UK?
Yeah, I'm in the North-West. I've been through all the KB and language settings, but can't see a way to correct it. The on-screen KB also only has a $ on it.
A good point. I hadn't spotted that either. The Euro key also doesn't work (not that I'd really need that).
I replaced the soft keyboard with "Better Keyboard" which does have a
I have a UK Milestone with 2.2 software and the Pund sign works perfectly fine.
How odd... I've pinged Motorola anyway. Will see what they say.
Szadzik...where did you get you're from? I got mine from Expansys. I've sent an email to Moto too and put it on Expansys site to see if they know. Seems like a European setting missing as the Euro button is not being recognised either.
Dunjamon - we both may have misread that. Szadzik has a Milestone 1, not a Milestone 2. There is as you say a mapping gone awry somewhere in the Milestone 2 firmware.
Aha...makes sense. Here's the response from Moto:
Thank you for contacting Motorola.
In response to your email, we would like to inform you, that to select the "
They've misunderstood your email. It should be pointed out that there is no $ symbol on the hardware keyboard...
However, this does give you the work around. Hold alt then hit
Definitely a bug, the EURO sign on my physical keyboard (top left button) gives no symbol when pressed, only a space/tab. The Alt + POUND combination throws in an DOLLAR sign.
I hope this will be addressed in a software update soon.
EDIT: This happens regardless of local settings, i.e. UK or US.
Hears the email I got back:
In response to your email, we would like to inform you, that the phone works as designed. There is no setting that can change this function. Regarding the physical keyboard, the Euro button (top left) is the tab key. The currency symbols are on "D" key.
For any further assistance or information please do not hesitate to contact us again, quoting your Customer Reference number.
Thank you for allowing us to be of service to you.
Ignoring the question really. I would ask for someone else to reply to the issue. Areti is trying to give you the run around.
I've still not heard back from moto. I sent them a message about this and a couple of other niggles I've been having.
I've had a very similar response from Moto now. They seem unable to grasp the concept that there is a
Have managed to 'get through' to Moto at last.
At least you got a straight answer.
I've never used the Calender Widget, I use Pure Grid Calender instead.
Not sure if this is linked, but I have the opposite issue with Facebook. Will upload fine through the app, but quick upload via Blur and it fails to send and shows the same error you are getting.
Hmm, was considering trying pure calendar anyway.
I may try removing my Google account and re-adding or something similar see if I can get picassa to work.
Thanks to Szadzik for this ..... hold Alt+
Still, it should give you a
Yaays, that would seem to be the elementary logic. We'd get well pissed off (no pun intended) if the sign on the door to the Gents led us into the Ladies! Well the women would be!
That's what moto told me when I was trying to explain to them that the way the physical KB is laid out, I shouldn't have to do this. Suppose we'll just have to wait for an update for an actual fix.
