    Hello,

    New convert from Android who is loving my Nokia 928. The one thing that is driving me crazy is that I can't figure out how to insert a '_' character inti the 'to' for a text message when I am trying to send a text to an email address. I need to enter something like 'friend_email@verizon.net'. I can't find the underscore character on the keyboard and I've looked everywhere.

    Any pointers appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Don

    Hold down the "." and you'll see "_" as an option in the popup.

    Hit the button to bring up the numbers and symbols ("&123"), then just above it, hit that big arrow pointing to the right. In that same row, you will find the underscore, to the right of the equal sign (=) and above the space bar.

    I have an email address with an underscore and it was driving me crazy, too...

    That's the - not the _
    You have to go to the #'s page then hold down the - and you will get a popup with the _ and others.

    I don't know if it's a Nokia 928-specific issue but Laura had the correct answer. This is for using an email address as the 'to' in a text message (not email message). Thank you Laura!

    You're welcome. I'm glad it worked.

    Yep, you are right, my solution is for the keyboard in standard mode.

    Finding the underscore key was difficult for me, too, also when I was entering a email username that includes a _. It should not be so hard to find.
