Welcome to the forums, Lisa.

Try removing the battery for 30 seconds (while the device is powered on).

Are you accidentally hitting the Shift key? It is the one that looks like (^aA).

If not, has the device come in contact with any moisture? Does this only happen with SMS messages, or if you compose an email, contact entry, calendar appointment, memo note, URL address, ect, does it happen?

That's a little odd. I'd say you have 2 choices. 1) Upgrade the OS. 2) If you just purchased the device, call your carrier and inform them of the issue and request a replacement.

Could try a backup and complete wipe of the phone to see if just resetting it back to factory will fix it. If after hard reset its still EvErY oThEr letter then definately call provider.
