On my keyboard I press 12# to get the numbers, and then 1/2 to get page 2 and there it is.

I remember reading something once about changing it on the HD2 it was definatly possible, but can't find the thread it was prob about 10months ago, and not sure that it would apply to the Desire HD anyway :(

You could install swiftkey. It's a much better keyboard than htc's. It's free in the amazon app store today only. Go get it.

Amazon app store isn't available in the uk.
A signature says a lot about a man. With that in mind; fish.
