    I need to input an @ symbol in my email setup - for my mailbox name. But I'm
    buggered if I can do it - the text input options are abc or 123, and the
    usual key press for @ (the 1 key several times) does not give me an @. I've
    tried the other keys too in a vain attempt to locate at @ in this input mode
    and I can't find one.

    I'm probably missing something totally obvious here but it's driving me
    mad - until I find an @ I can't access my email !

    sw version is r1a081 if that has any bearing.

    grrrrrr... help !!

    TIA

    Strange, because when I press [1] in the fill in area
    (where you have to put in your e-mail adres)
    I get the option for [email protected]/:_-~,;%$\?! etc

    I sorry I can't give a solution, but the @ symbol
    is for sure under the number 1.

    Try pushing the number down for a longer period..

    Good luck

    Argh.... found now by pressing the 0 key three times --- and I thought I'd
    looked every-blinkin'-where !

    You are It's either on the "1" key or right hand function key -
    "More", under "Add symbol".

    It could be on other phones or other menus or even other firmwares - but not
    in that menu on the t610 it isn't - the only menu choices for the left and
    right keys are "ok" or "123 / abc".

    But I found it on the 0 key after pressing it three times, anyway.

    I suspect that is because it was the mailbox option I was trying to fill in
    rather than the email address - but as I said in a later post, I found it on
    the 0 key. Annoyingly, as I understand it, you only usually need the
    beginning part of your email address / username for the mailbox name - the
    bit before the @. So most people wouldn't come across this issue, you see ?
    But in order for it to work I needed the whole thing so I needed the @.

    Not in that bit it ain't. It was on the 0 ! Weirdness abounds.

    I wonder if it's a firmware related bug ? I think I'm going to be off to the
    SE service centre next week to get the firmware updated anyway.
