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!

Did you try a battery pull?

interestingly enough, it fixes a lot of problems. go to the home screen, and just pull the battery out. DON'T turn it off, leave it on then pull the battery out. see if that doesnt fix it. if not, come back here so i can help you some more.

I did a battery pull on my Blackberry and it worked. NONE of the other options worked b/c by being stuck on caps lock those buttons do not actually do what they say. The SYM button is now the * (b/c its in caps lock/shift) and the caps lock shift button is now the vibrate and # button.
Its this kind of lack of intuitive hardware design that will make the blackberry lose out to the IPHONE.

Posted on Jan 05, 2010

Or just hit the two buttons in the bottom left togher the shift and the sym key took care of my problem

Posted on Mar 17, 2008

I had the same problem...i pressed the caps lock key (to the right of the zero) and the CAPS symbol went away.

How to disable all predictive text on blackberry pearl


Blackberry uses what is called SureType for predictive texting. I don't recall the exact menu option to look in on your model of phone, however it is very easy to disable. Instead you set the keybard input to "Multi-Tap," which does disable all predictive texting. The exact instructions are available in the User Guide at www.blackberry.com, which will be specific to your model and will very clearly show you what to click on to change the option. Takes less than a minute to turn it off! Hope this helps :)

As a security feature, the BlackBerry device is designed to allow a maximum of 10 attempts by the BlackBerry device user to type the correct password. After the tenth attempt, if the correct password has not been typed, all data is erased from the BlackBerry device in order to discourage its theft or misuse.If you are certain that the password you are typing into the BlackBerry device is correct, please complete the following steps.
1) Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry device.
2) Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text.
3) Instead of asterisks, the text you have been entering for the password will now show in plain text. Check to verify that it is correct
4) If the password is still being rejected by your BlackBerry device as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed
5) A prompt will appear in Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry device. Type in your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry device
6) If the password you have given is still rejected, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that has software version 4.0 or greater, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator and request that your password be reset for you.
If you are not on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server and have forgotten your password, there is no way to have the password changed without wiping all data from your BlackBerry device. After the tenth attempt ur phone will be automatically wiped out.

Im tired of my ex calling me, and I would liket to only block that number from calling me and sending text messages.


From this link:
http://freeiphoner.com/blackberry-curve-question-blocking-numbers/

To block calls on your Curve: 1)In the phone, press the Menu key 2)Click Options 3)Click Call Barring 4)Highlight the call blocking option you want 5)Press the Menu key 6)Click Enable 7)Type your call blocking password. To stop blocking calls, highlight a call blocking option, click the Menu key and select Disable. Please note that call blocking is not associated with your device, but instead with your carrier and your SIM. You will need to contact your service provider to purchase/enable call blocking – they will provide you with a password for the set-up listed above (which, by the way, I lifted directly from my Curve – must give credit where it is due!). Hope this helps!

Blackberry curve 8310 can't make or receive calls or texts


I have found that the second line can be selected in the call log screen, if your number isn't displayed below the time then highlight and select your main phone number this should allow you to access the features once again

Deleting e-mails


Hold down the "caps" key (bottom left-most or right-most key) and while holding down the key use the track-ball to move down or up selecting multiple emails ... then just delete as usual.
