Default CAPS LOCK on 7100i

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I may be new to the BB World and I can read the book, but can anyone advise how, when writing an email, one sets the CAPS LOCK on?

Thanks,
Jon

I am a data rep and just came across this forum and joined a few minutes ago...so while I am here I will give you some input to this Caps Lock Feature that non of us can find.
I seems that their is no Caps Lock on the 7100i. Their is a numbers lock but we are minus the Caps.
What I do is to type and hold a 'beat longer' to achive the Caps.
I have not called Blackberry as of yet but everyone else and all seem to feel the Cap lock was left out. It might be corrected in a future software upgrade which might be soon as their current software does not support the Comet Tracker.

Re: Left out

That's not all. This phone was a complete design disaster.

littleroot,
I am so sorry you feel that way but my response these days, it wasn't always, is to find another service that carry the 7100 Blackberry, find another phone, or find another device - maybe a HP or Treo. Their are some great ones out there.
Good Luck and happy hunting, I hope it works out for you.

Left out... hmm. I figured out the "hold longer" feature, but I send a lot of formatted messages via my phone that require all caps. Its slow to compose, but for now doable. Any idea when there will be an upgraded software available??

You can change the font in screen/keyboard to the bbcapitals.
