I don't see where this guide tells you that the Left Shift key will product numbers in conjunction with other keys.

On every full qwerty Blackberry when you use the Alt key with another key you'll get whatever is on the top half of the key. That also applies for both shift keys which have a triangle (shift) on the bottom half and Num on the upper half of the left one and Cap on the upper half of the right one. Num and Cap are secondary functions (Num Lock and Cap Lock) of the two shift keys.

It makes perfect sense -- it's completely consistent behavior.
