    Is there a way to 'lock' the alt key on the Bold?

    On the Curve, if you press the Alt key first, then the Shift key, it locks device in numeric mode until you press one of those keys again.

    Use the SHIFT button directly under the ALT button.

    Well I learned something, to!

    I did not know that Alt + the shift on the right side of my Bold locked the caps even though the key indicates just that!

    Wow, I've been using this thing for months and kept saying I wish this was possible. Just goes to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    Blackberrys have so much built right in to the OS, we just got to figure out how to use it all!
