Probably not, but I can't say for sure. Those keys are meant to act as a virtual number pad. The reason you are getting numbers instead of letters is because "Number Lock" is on. To toggle…

I would look at bildmobil: bildmobil.de... But you need a German address for the SIM to get sent to - sending it to somebody other than yourself doesn't work, they always send it to the address…

Having to stand per se does not pose a health risk in pregnancy. If the doctor would have thought full bed rest was necessary she would have said so. Carrying 10 kg boxes should also be fine (if you…
