    Droid 2 Global (it is running 2.2 for the OS)

    I am trying to use the external keyboard to put in a backslash ("\") but hitting the ALT + SPACE (should give me SYM) does nothing. ALT LOCK doesn't seem to work at all either.

    I am having better luck with the virtual keyboard but I thought I would ask if this is an issue with the DROID 2 (base) as well? Or if it is just the D2G so far...

    Thanks,

    Apparently I've never used the backslash with the physical keyboard.

    Just tried it to answer your question and it worked just fine.
