You're probably using a keyboard other than US English. To get the $ sign, switch to symbols by tapping on the &123 button in the lower left corner, then tap and hold on the button corresponding to your local currency to get a list of alternative currency symbols. The $ sign should be listed there. For instance, with the UK English layout, I need to tap ...

For symbols that are simply upper- or lowercase Greek letters (e.g. pi, sigma, delta) you can install the Greek keyboard layout: Note that it's a ~16 MB download, and you may have to install a language support update that requires a phone restart. At least that was the case when I tested it. A few other common symbols (e.g. plus-minus sign, not equal sign, ...

If your language is in the list, go to Settings → Keyboard, tap on your language and make sure that the "Suggest text" and "Type as I flick through letters" options are enabled. For more ...

Microsoft does not allow developers to replace the system keyboard, so developers can only create keyboards that are not integrated and cannot be used inside other applications. For example, you can send an email/sms using the separate T9 application, but the T9 keyboard cannot be used in the Microsoft email/sms apps. I would hazard a guess that one of the ...

Ok, solution was really quite simple, this may be enough: Disable lock screen password Enable the lock screen password. When it prompts for the new password, it should show just the numeric phone dial keypad. Makes sense in the hindsight, though I tried other things before I figured it out. Just in case, here's a list of steps I did. Again, the bolded ...

Bluetooth keyboards are currently not supported by the operating system since it lacks the corresponding profile (HID). Refer to this list to see all available profiles: https://www.bluetooth.org/tpg/QLI_viewQDL.cfm?qid=19535 I read that Windows Phone 8 provides developers with the ability to access the Bluetooth stack through an API to enable "App to device"...

http://www.trustedreviews.com has a very comprehensive list of what is available. I have copied them here for convenience. Add full stop and space by tapping space-bar twice When you are typing any text, just try to tap the space-bar twice and see what happens. WP7 automatically changes the first space into a dot, so you end up with dot and space. This is ...

You already have an excellent answer that will help you wherever you may be typing, but I’d like to add an app-based option that might be easier if you are writing a lot of mathematical formulae. Math Keyboard for WolframAlpha As you can tell from the name, the primary purpose of the app is to input formulae into Wolfram|Alpha, but it also has the option ...

The reason is essentially the same, yes, in that it has to do with character encoding - the way human-readable characters are stored as machine-readable bits. An SMS message has a size limit of 140 bytes, and the number of characters that can fit inside that limit depends on the encoding used. The default GSM character set that covers the English alphabet ...

The only way to remove a word from the dictionary is resetting your complete dictionary by going to Settings -> keyboard -> typing settings -> reset suggestions

With Windows mobile 10 I had the same problem (I have returned to 8.1). In Windows Central I found this: Additional language keyboards may not be present and may not be able to install on US builds after upgrading to Windows 10. Workaround: Reopen the Windows Insider app and re-select Insider Fast/Slow again. The download of keyboard packages will ...

As far as I can remember they haven't brought their bluetooth stack to this level yet. So I think that the answer here is no:( Here is also a link about this...

You can go to Settings>> Keyboard and the select the preferred languages. Further you can interchange between languages as shown in the picture.

This is not a user configurable setting, and currently there does not exist any way to swap the supplied keyboard for an alternate (which from a security point of view, is a good thing)

Bluetooth keyboards are only supported with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 which will only be released officially on a select set of phones (ie. not all WP8 phones). Currently, the Lumia 640 and 640 XL come with Update 2. For most other phones, it is possible to install Update 2 unofficially as part of the Windows 10 for phone preview programme. Phones ...

On WindowsPhone.com, there is a pretty good tutorial on this. 1. On Start, flick left to the App list, then tap Settings > Keyboard. 2. Select all the languages you'd like to be able to use from your keyboard. The next time you use your keyboard, you'll see a button next to the Space bar that indicates which language you're currently using on ...

Here's a related question. It's not the same on Windows 10 Mobile but here's what I found: Selecting on the word after it was auto-corrected suggests my spelling.After choosing my spelling the force-correct for that word appears to be disabled for the current email. I hope it's the same for other document types. Tapping right after the word, before it's ...

Unless they send one that is compatible with the phone, it won't be displayed properly. Sorry, but not everything is going to be compatible across devices. Certain ones will work fine...like smiles. Others won't. Perhaps there is a 3rd party messaging app that will do it better. You will lose right integration with the phone though.

Found the answer here Go to Settings -> Keyboard There is an option to download additional keyboards including Japanese 12 Key and QWERTY

Not possible in this release, sorry. If you want to send feedback to Microsoft about this, I've listed a number of feedback routes for wp on this page - http://dfwiki.devfish.net/technology.Microsoft-feedback-routes.ashx .

Change to the English keyboard. If you're unable to do so, go to Settings and add the keyboard. You can have multiple keyboards at the same time and easily switch between them (I have Swedish, English and French keyboards).

I had this same problem upon updating to the Lumia Amber update. If your issue is the same as mine this is how I solved it. I think the dictionaries must have been updated so they want users to re-download them in some cases. Please read through each solution until you find the correct one. Solution 1 Settings Keyboard add keyboard (If yours is no longer ...

As far as I'm aware, there is no way to do this. It is built into the OS and cannot be changed. You could create a feature suggestion here.

Unfortunately you can't disable the keyboard highlighting when entering your pin yet. There is already a feature request on the Windows Phone UserVoice page you should vote for.

In Windows phone 8.1 the copied text or clipboard text will disappear after you lock your phone. This problem is fixed in Windows 10 mobile. There is no solution to this until the Windows 10 update arrives to your device. Note : You can use note taking apps to preserve your text while locking your phone in WP8.1

This is (somewhat) possible to do on the current Windows 10 preview, as long as you have more than one language installed. Go to your keyboard settings and select "More keyboard settings." Make sure the box next to "Show the language switching key" is checked. This will replace the emoji key with the language switching key. Emojis can still be accessed by ...
