Try Alt + right shift, if I recall correctly.

If you press the right shift key (the key with the # symbol on it) it will put the CAP on, but it doesn't stick. I am trying to figure out how to make the caps stay on until I disable it.

There is no caps lock on the pearl. You have to hold down the # key when typing a word in caps.

The only thing I've found to do is for each cap, press and hold the key till it goes cap. That's easier than pushing the # every time. It's one less keystroke, at least.

Talking Caps Lock in BB 8320 (Pearl)

to enable caps lock hold down the Alt key and press the Right caps key labled "aA^" to disable just hit either caps key. To enable Num Lock just hit Alt and the Left Caps Key. to disable just hit alt or caps. doesnt matter. Hope this helps.....

CVANGAS, the Pearl only has one Caps key. Holding the ALT and CAPS keys gives you NUM Lock. I thought I saw how to do this in the book, but I don't have it with me....

I have accidentally enabled caps lock on my Pearl before. Unfortunately, I don't know how I did it. and I really want to know!
