  1. Ah, thanks, this suggestion worked very well and got at least the accents back. Thanks a lot! Now I still wonder why the Alt key does nothing at all here... but as it is, I can live without emojis, of course. I also thought the F (Fxtec logo) key should bring up a way to set program shortcuts for the A-Z keys. But with me it always opens Google Search, no matter which one of the A-Z keys I press in conjunction with it. If I press it by itself (without another key) it just opens the Home page. So I still think something might be wrong with my keyboard settings, only I have no cl
  2. Could you please explain? What keyboard profile should I deselect, where? And what notification? I've never seen a notification about the keyboard, so I'm mystified.
  3. Hi, I'm probably totally stupid but after two weeks of playing with my Pro1 I still haven't found out how to type special characters (such as a-umlaut, ä) nor how to insert emojis. I would expect the "Alt" or "Sym" keys would somehow get me there, but both these keys just seem dead keys. They seem to do nothing at all (not when tried alone, nor in combination with other keys) . Background info: I have a QWERTY phone. On advice found here at the forum, I installed FinQwerty and then set the keyboard to "FinQwerty US", this to normalize the use of the shift key (and this worked out OK)
  4. Yes there is! Problem solved (for me at least). I had the very same problem (continuous "too many attempts" warnings even caused hiccups for my banking app...) and I stumbled onto an excellent fix. Go to the Play Store and install the app Admin Control by Dave Hewitt. Very simple small app, totally free, no ads, doesn't use internet, open-source (Github). This app has just one on-off switch and what it does is very simple: it disables the fingerprint sensor JUST for the lock screen. Meaning that on a locked phone the fingerprint sensor is inactive, but once the phone is unlocked, the
  5. Very happy to tell that I finally got mine (preorder #10***, placed in March, paid in August) yesterday, January 27. A European QWERTY one, shipped to the Netherlands. Minor delivery detail: when pre-ordering in March we were promised that by way of introduction the phone would be delivered complete with earphones. No such thing in the package. Ah well, no big deal I guess. First usage impressions: Keyboard is a blessing indeed. Super! The screen is fine too, camera a bit average but good enough to live with. Hardware feels sturdy and design is OK except for one irritating thin
  6. December 15: still heard nothing from F(x)tec about shipping my order. This was preorder #10***, placed in March, paid in August, for normal QUERTY version, to Netherlands, EU. I now understand that a new batch is shipped weekly, and that presently we're at batch #3. So I wonder, is there now finally a way to predict -- based on order number and EU location -- what batch (and thus, what week) my order shipment will be in? Or is the shipping procedure still too haphazard to make such guesses?
  7. I pre-ordered my Pro1 in March. Paid for it August 1. We're now close to December and (except for a couple of vague generic production status mails) I still haven't heard nothing from F(x)tec, Even on this informative forum, I can only find a jumble of info about different shipping batches etc. that in fact leaves me feeling even more confused and in the dark. Never before in my life has a tech order left me so frustrated, not to say exasperated. If there is someone better informed around here, then please, please, please can you give out some more specific and above all reliable i
  8. By now I'm beginning to think along the same lines. The F(x)tec people may be brilliant geeks capable of designing an absolutely great and enticing and practical keyboard phone, but more and more it begins to look like they have less talent for actually running a production company with all the planning and customer contacts that entails. The continuous delaying of actual delivery and the apparent lack of reliable customer info is growing rather worrying indeed. I pre-ordered my phone in March (expecting to get it somewhere in July) and paid for it by Mastercard on August 1 (expecting, bas
  9. Just want to thank everyone for their comments. Personally I still think that we, the customers-to-be who have pledged to pay for this very promising new kind of phone, have every right to get informed a little better and in a more systematic way. This has nothing to do with impatience at all. I am quite prepared to wait as long as it takes, but still it would be reasonable for us to get updated more frequently on progress, expectations, and schedule. And thanks to your above comments I now also understand that the information channeling by the F(x)tec team may have been relying a little
  10. Hi all, as a customer I'd like to suggest to the F(x)tec team to start giving us just a little more info about how things are progressing. For since placing my pre-order in March, I got just one mail from F(x)tec (about some hands-on event in London, irrelevant to me as I am in the Netherlands). For the rest, I heard nothing at all and I find this a little bit disappointing. Please understand I am not impatient, of course it's much better to get a really well-finished product at a later stage than a still-buggy one at some earlier stage! But what I don't like is being kept a bit in the dark
