Next time you do an 'upgrade' to the mobile site, I wonder if it's possible to 'lock' the numeric keys on a qwerty keyboard when entering information into a field where only numeric info should be entered.
That's an awkward explaination ... let me give an example: There are some apps on my BBTorch9800 where, when entering data into a 'numeric' field, I don't have to hold the 'alt' button and the alphanumeric key simultaneously in order to get the numeric value ... it assumes I want the number and not the letter for that key. For example, when entering a phone number into the 'Contacts' application, I don't have to push 'alt' and 'D/5'. It assumes I want the '5' without having to hold the alt-key down. Thanks, P4S
I'm not sure about the BBTorch9800 specifically, but a lot of times native apps have access to keypads that Web apps don't. Have you seen this particular keyboard on a Web app before? If so, if you could send a link I can take a look and see how they did it.
It sounds like something specific to a native (not a browser) application, though.
Oh, another quick question: does the BB phone-number keypad include a period? If not, we wouldn't be able to use that keypad even if we do have access to it somehow. People need to be able to put in decimal places.
