Keyboard Hello, Why can I not type the symbols (!@#$) on my laptop? Pressing the shift key will give me caps on letters but it will do nothing for the 1-0 keys.

Re: keyboard

Without knowing the exact model and OS, it's hard to say.

But on most, you tap the "CAP" button and the symbols will become an option.

I can't dial out.

The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps

Hi Samantha
Try and do a soft reset for your device by pressing the reset button on the side of the device "It's a small hole just below the volume slider. You can press it with your stylus pen"

If that doesnt work, you may need to hard reset the device. Note, if u hard reset, you will loose all your data. Make sure you backup all your data before doing a hard reset.

It can be done by holding down the two soft keys on the front of the phone (the soft keys are two buttons with a "-" symbol on them.

To hard reset,hold down the two soft keys on the front of the phone (the soft keys are two buttons with a "-" symbol on them.

Hold those two down, at the same time, while pressing the reset button on the side of the phone. This will erase all data, and restore the phone back to factory condition.

It has a qwerty keyboard/keypad so the "Caps Lock" key just below the "Tab" key on the left side of the phones keyboard/keypad and pressing it once should turn Caps Lock off. And BTW the "Shift" key should only Capitalize the next letter keyed.

Caps lock

Open up an email, or something else you can type into. Click the menu button, and select "enable multitap." Then go back to the menu and select "enable suretype." That took off the cap lock for me. I just wish I knew how it turned itself on to begin with!
