Will it work with a bluetooth keyboard - (for texting mainly)

Hi. I like my new 8110 4G but texting is driving me bonkers! I've looked at all the posts regarding how poor it is on this phone and agree with most. So I wonder if there's an option to use an external keyboard for those times when typing long messages, etc.  ?

  • Hi @Hauwi.  I can't see why not; have you tried connecting one?

    Doesn't work with Bluetooth keyboard. Didn't think it would.

    In my experience many of the Bluetooth keyboards works with Ios devices but does not work with some Androids (Pairs OK, but does not get the keystrokes). If it pairs with the 8110 4G, it COULD be that it is the keyboard you tested with that is incompatible, and not that it is impossible with all Bluetooth keyboards.

    Possible but judging by the rest of the KaiOS I doubt it. Doesn't connect via Bluetooth to my hands free device I have in my car and every other smartphone has. We have to remember that KaiOS is not really a smart feature phone but more a feature phone with Google apps, which are the only smartness on the OS  
  • Doesn't work. Pairs, but doesn't work. It probably just hasn't got the SW support for the Keyboard HID.

    These keyboards don't work, sorry. They say they will work with the Nokia 8110 though.

  • I tried it with the Anne Pro 2 keyboard and it wouldn't pair. I can pair this with a my samsung android phone no problem. So sad because that would make this phone usable. I need it for WhatsApp primarily. Without a bluetooth keyboard it's just not an option as a phone.

    Interesting topic.

    When I wanted to buy a bluetooth Logictech keyboard for my Linux Ubuntu operating system desktop, I read at Logictech's website the keyboard is Windows compatible ONLY and this was confirmed by Malaysia's Logictech service centre so I never bought it.

    On that point, it looks like ONLY if a bluetooth keyboard is among others, KaiOS compatible, will it work with Nokia 8110 4G.
