    Question Caps lock & numbers Lock?

    Is there a way to have a caps lock or number lock on the curve. There are time i need to type out some thinegs if full capital letters, and it's a pain to hold down shift key with one finger while i type with another. Same for numbers. Is there a numbers lock?

    CAPS = ALT and right caps button will leave caps on...

    Num Lock = alt and left caps button

    Wow, those functions are pretty much front-and-center in the user manual Tips and Tricks section and I'm a bit surprised that so many people haven't discovered that. Here are a few other tips that might be obscure but helpful:
    Switch apps: Alt-Escape
    Soft reboot: Alt-R.Shift-Del
    PgDn (most screens): SPACE
    PgUp (most screens): Shift-SPACE
    Top of list/page: T
    Bottom of list/page: B
    Compose (in msg): C
    Reply (in msg): R
    ReplyAll (in msg): L
    Forward (in msg): F
    Show outgoing (msg list): Alt-O
    Show incoming (msg list): Alt-I
    Show phone log (msg list): Alt-P
    Prev day's msgs (msg list): P
    Next day's msgs (msg list): N
    "About" info ALT + EACE or Alt+LeftShift+h
    In Browser, click U to hide/display header
    In Browser, click D to hiDe.
    In Browser, click-hold trackball to switch between page and column
    Telephone keypad (in call or phone list, eg 1-800-BESTBUY): Alt + keyboard letter you want to dial.

    I admit I haven't taken the time. Working 70 hours a week I get to play online during work to figure stuff out but actually reading the manual, hasn't happened. Sorry and thank you for the help.

    Escape button is the "back" button or the reverse-direction thingy to the right of the trackball :-)
