    Alt + Number bug?


    Google is no help to me on this:

    Windows 10:

    I use Alt + 0176 frequently to get the degree symbol. Now it gives me é. I use two keyboard setups. ENG US & ENT INTL. Both gave me the degree symbol before. Now, in the last couple of days, they give me é. I can't find anything in settings that is any help. Alt + 177 which is right next to it gives me the proper symbol, ±.

    Don't tell me to use Character Map to get the symbol. I already know that and it's lame.

    :)

    Little Alt Code Utility

    It does do that, mlee. All buttons have tooltips with the alt code and a description listed in it.

    The masculine ordinal number in Spanish, Italian and Portugese? I'm not even sure what it is for ... lol

    Alt + Number bug?

    E50 number to contact name matching bug?

    Hello,

    I just got an E50 (RM-170, software V 07.36.00).

    It seems to have a very irritating bug in the way numbers are matched to contacts in the 'recent calls' lists:

    - an entry in the list will show the contact name *only if* the number appears only once in the contact list;

    - otherwise the entry only shows the number.



    This happens all the time with my well organized (synced ith my PC) contact list where 2 members of the same family typically have entries with different mobile numbers, but same landline numbers. In that case the landline number will never be matched to
    a contact name.



    To me this is not a 'feature', but definitely a bug. All other (non-Nokia) phones I have owned have the much more usable behaviour of showing in the calls list the name for the first (or last - who cares) contact that matches a call number.



    Is there a software update that fies this bug for the E50?
