Default Accidently got caps lock stuck on?

Please Login to Remove!

At the weekend I accidently managed to get my caps lock stuck on, this meant that when I looked at my messages, when I scrolled it up and down with trackball it was selecting them all, I had to use keypad no. 2 and 8 to go up and down without selecting everything.

Anyway somehow (lots of pushing random keys) I managed to get rid of the big yellow arrow (top left) and I could use the trackball again to select message.

Big question is how do I get caps lock back on as it would be useful to go through my messages put caps lock on select them all with trackball and mass delete, then switch caps lock off again??

I beleive you can only set caps lock while in a text application (such as composing an email). Ditto trying to turn it off....

And in your message folder, you can hold down the SHIFT key while scrolling to select multiple messages for deletion.
