Nokia E5 calculator vs. keyboard problem - decimal/floating point

Hello, I've just bought Nokia E5 with Slovak QWERTZ keyboard. I'm using English as default language in phone, because I don't like Slovak translation on Symbian S60. The problem is, that I can't write in default phone calculator decimal/floating point in case I'm using English language and "Writing language" set to English. I was able to write floating point only with these settings:

"Language" => "Slovak", "Writing language" => "Slovak"

"Language" => "Czech", "Writing language" => "Czech"

It's because Slovak and Czech people has floating point made by comma, not dot. I really would like to use English language on my phone, so is there any possible solution for this?

 

Thanks in advance.

I don't think I can help, but may I clarify the problem?  You are saying that with both the writing language and phone language configured to English, the calculator still accepts only a comma for floating point numbers, and not a dot?

That's right. You know the problem is maybe, that on Slovak keyboard is on a "key" the "divide operator" and "floating dot" mixed together. So when I press "dot" to write floating point, it's using divide operation and I just can't force the keyboard to write the "dot" instead to use divide operator.

I think you are right, but wonder if Function key-/ would force a dot?  Otherwise your only solution may be to try other calculator apps.

My nokia E5 Keyboard shows wrong characters if you try to insert a fullstop; it shows a colon; and I have to go to symbol insert to type a fullstop ?
