How to Type Accent Marks on a Blackberry


The Blackberry is a popular and versatile smartphone device stocked with features and functionality, including a QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard provides additional, somewhat hidden functionality with special key combinations. By using particular keys along with the trackball or trackpad, your Blackberry can type accent marks and special characters in text blocks and messages.

Type and hold the letter key to be accented.
Roll the trackball to the left or right, or click the left or right arrow on the trackpad.
Release the letter key. For example, if typing the “ü” character, type and hold “u” while moving the trackball or trackball left or right. Each left or right movement shows a different variation of the “u” character.
