    Looking at the phone to buy, my usage has me typing the " and ' characters a lot. I don't see them as alt characters on the phone though. Is there a quick way to getting at these characters?

    Hitting the 'Sym|au' button brings up a symbol list on the screen, including smilies and whatnot, which disappears when you make a selection. It's very quick!

    Ah, ok. So moving my thumb a little farther than for other keys then. If only they had used more of the keyboard for alt characters, they could have gotten more punctuation on the keyboard.
