    Go to the characters on your keyboard. Once there, the shift key becomes an arrow pointing to the right. Press it to get access to a whole other page of characters. Also, you can long press any key (letter, number or character) to get even more options.

    Lots of things to find. Holding C gives you the copyright sign, The lower numbers have options for common fractions as well as superscript versions for squaring and cubing things, 0 has the degree symbol... and so on.

    Thinking about it makes me wish my desktop keyboard was virtual... :)

    Here's a helpful link from Bing, although ..rocker has already given you the Key:

    Mobile Keyboard Tips | Windows Phone 7

    Also, holding down the period gives you access to a few common symbols.

    The one I can never find is the degree symbol. :)

    Good, anodynamic.

    And speaking of the + sign, holding it gives you access to plus-minus, and holding the > sign gives you aceess to equal-to-or-greater-than.

    And thanks for the degree one which I'd forgotten (always holding o instead of 0) ;)

    Wow, I just realised about the shift key turning into a right arrow about a month ago, now I need to discover all the long-press symbols. Lol.
