    On BB10 "GUI.TextField" is the native Soft Keyboard supported to show letters and not just numbers?

    EDIT: Anyone else have a Z10 STL 100-1, that has the same issue?

    NGUI uses the standard Unity TouchScreenKeyboard class and opens the full native keyboard without problem. Maybe try that?

    Seem to remember I had this quite a while back. I think in my case it was down to the password. In Settings/Security and Privacy/Device Password I'd turned on the Simple Password option, which uses just numbers.
    Hope that helps.

    Can't say I've seen this either. Actually, I haven't yet implemented the different keyboard types so it shouldn't be possible to get a numpad only keyboard... Submit a bug, I'd like to see how this is happening.

    Do you know what parameters NGUI is using?
    No matter what I try, it just shows the num pad.

    So just tried the NGUI demo Scene "Tutorial 9 - Input"... and the same thing happens.

    EDIT: If it works on your phone, i'm thinking it might be some language setting Unity isn't taking into account.
    1) What lang and region is your phone set to??
    2) What NGUI version?
    3) What Z10 device model do you have?
    4) What Unity version are you using?

    Thanks for any info, it would really help me out :)

    OK submitted.
    "(Case 566823) Virtual Keyboard only shows Num Pad on BB10"

    Note I was using Unity4.3.0b4

    1) Language = English, Region = United States (English)
    2) NGUI version 2.6.2. I had to add || UNITY_BLACKBERRY in UIInput.cs, I tried NGUI2.7.0 but it broke my project so reverted back
    3) Model = BlackBerry Z10, Model Number = STL 100-3, BB OS = 10.1.0.2019
    4) Unity 4.2.0

    Cool I have the STL 100-1 phone. Might be something to do with that... as its the odd ball out and maybe Unity isn't taking something about it into account idk.

    Found the bug in Unity and how to hack around it.
    Unity is not calling "virtualkeyboard_change_options".
    Maybe you can pass this along as the how to fix the issue AlexThibodeau.

    For others here is the hack for now:

    Good find zezba. Getting that change in has been on my plate for a while now. Just haven't gotten to it yet. :-(
