    This is one of those small little annoyances I noticed moving from my 650 to my 700wx. The ; is now the standard instead of the :. Does anyone know a way to edit this so that the : is the standard instead of the ;?

    I would love to get this hack. I can't believe that ":" isn't standard, it's annoying having to open up the on screen keyboard to get ":".

    Not sure if you know but if you hit the Alt key on the keyboard, a menu pops up with the special characters and the : is the first one on the menu. It was a little annoying at first but I got use to it now. Just hit Alt and the center button on the 5 way nav.

    Agreed, another important one is backslash, which is important for logging into servers and directories etc. The alt/center button thing makes it available though.

    Thanks so much for that tip, that makes a world of difference.

    Add me as another person annoyed by the semicolon instead of the colon. Now, as an English-nerd, the semicolon is easily my favorite punctuation mark; On a smartphone, colon is more important.

    seriously, what happened there? Palm generally has good intentions when making such changes to their devices, even when it's inconvenient to us, but this one makes no sense.

    Yes, I know about using the Alt key but still, it would be nice to use Alt for the less common ;

    It wouldn't be Palm if they didn't make a change to the buttons,lol.

    also, ALT plus space bar works the same as ALT + Center. space bar can be a little easier to press sometimes...

    I could be wrong but I think the reason that the semi-colon is there instaed of the colon is because the semi-colon is used in outlook to send to multiple senders?

    Good point! We've got to remember we're using Windows now

    Hrmm, is this a WX thing, my 700w doesnt do that.

    I don't know about the 700W but the WX has an ALT key on the keyboard..and yes ALT and option are not the same keys.

    You capitalize after a semicolon, English nerd?
