Welcome to the forums. This may help. It applies to the OS you may have.

The Show Keyboard menu option is missing from the Home Screen of the BlackBerry Storm smartphone after upgrading to BlackBerry® Device Software version 5.0.


This is a previously reported issue that has been escalated internally to our development team. No resolution time frame is currently available.


In order to display the keyboard on the BlackBerry Storm smartphone Home Screen, perform the following:

Click Options.
Select the Screen/Keyboard menu option.
Scroll down and assign Virtual Keyboard to either the Right Side Convenience Key Opens: or Left Side Convenience Key Opens: option.
Save the changes by escaping from the Screen/Keyboard menu.
Return to the BlackBerry Storm smartphone's Home Screen.
Click either the Left or Right Side Convenience Key.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks buttonî
