Question about Motorola Mobility V170

Capitalization in Phonebook

I've read the manual and still can't figure out how to capitalize anything except the first letter (this is automatic) of a name I am putting in the phonebook of my Motorola V170 . If I want to put in a last and first name of an entry, I can't capitalize both. HELP!!

    I did see that in the manual but either I don't understand it, I'm totally a dork or it doesn't work.

    I'll keep trying to figure it out.

    Per that manual: Use the up/down arrow keys to capitalize or lowercase respectively.
    FYI - it doesn't work. It will, quite randomly, change to upper or lower case lettering, but I have not figured out the combination of keys that make this happen.
    Very annoying phone for texting.

    Same deal here. Sometimes it texts in all caps.

Thanks! The arrow keys will change the letters, you have to hit the arrow quick enough for it to work.

I have found a link to the V170 manual in PDF format, and on the left hand side of the manual under ENTERING TEXT it has a section on capitalization.
Please compare against your own phone to see if it matches.

Good luck and thanks for capitalizing!

One Time Entry

check your text button settings
I think it's the star button every time you hit it it will change the type of text from capital to lower case to numbers to symbles ect.
If it is not the star button look for the button with the arrow on it pointing upwards
