    Ok. From any screen on your bb press alt and then right caps. At the top of your screen caps will appear, at this point you no longer have to hold anything down. The letters will appear capital. The same method is applied to the number lock. Press alt and then left caps and the word "NUM" will appear at the top of your screen.

    Some keyboard shortcuts that work on the Curve don't work on the Pearl because the keyboards are different. I have never gotten the standard Caps Lock shortcut to work on my Pearl.

    CAPS Lock does not exist on the Pearl... hold down each letter key for a sec, it will turn to CAP.

    NUM Lock is hold SHFT and press ALT

    Actually it does!!!! It's more of a glitch than a real way of using caps locks, but it works!! I actually saw it on this website and it works for me. It's only good if you plan on typing a couple words or more in CAPs. otherwise it's quicker to just keep pressing the CAP button before each letter.

    Procedure: MUST BE DONE QUICKLY!

    Step 1: Press and hold the green send button,
    Step 2: Press and hold the aA uppercase button
    Step 3: Release the green send button
    Step 4: Release the aA uppercase button
    ( at this time you will be in you calls log page)
    Step 5: Press the back arrow (escape) button
    ( now you should be back texting where you were)
    Step 6: To exit CAPS lock mode, press the aA button twice.

    It's really NOT as hard or confusing as it looks... Hope that helps
