Default 8120 Pearl - Trackball highlighting and stuck in shift mode??

Please Login to Remove!

I have no idea how but from what i can figure out my blackberry has managed to get stuck in shift mode, when I get into a message I can only type in capitals and multi tap? My trackball is just highlighting messages, i cant open them using my trackball at all, I tried to go into help but the trackball just highlights all the writing and doesnt let me scroll down?

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks for your help!

I would start by hitting the ALT and SHIFT keys, see if this gets rid of it. I had that problem on my 8130 a few time, and a battery pull (removing battery with the device ON, wait 30 secs, replace) usually wouldn't fix it, but try that too.
