    is there any way to get a "+" sign or any other extra characters on the virtual keyboards?

    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.
