    Hi, I have a Android 1.5 orange branded Hero and I often need to use the | pipe character. There is a broken pipe button but this produces a different character. I currently copy&paste it each time from a draft text after copying&pasting it from wikipedia but this is a pretty long winded route since I use it in passwords and in my SSH client.
    Does anybody have any solutions to this? Is it likely to be fixed in 2.1?
    Thanks, Martin

    Have you tried an alternative keyboard?

    I use Swype, and it has the pipe key above the 4 on the numeric pad (press 'SYM' on the main keypad).

    I would recommend Swype over the standard keyboard anyway, it is so much faster!
