Which device do you want help with?

Keypad & typing

Cut and paste, use speech-to-text, and access keyboard settings.

  1. To enter a character, press the designated key on the Keypad. Tap multiple times to cycle through the character options for that key.
    Note: T9 ("Text on 9 keys") allows words to be entered by a single keypress for each letter, as opposed to the multi-tap approach used in conventional mobile phone text entry, in which several letters are associated with each key, and selecting one letter often requires multiple keypresses. It combines the groups of letters on each device key with a dictionary of words
