    Hi all,
    I've had my Captivate Glide for over a week now, and have been trying to figure out some issues with the keyboard.

    This only seems to happen in when composing an email or text message. When I need to either use the shift or alt key to cap or use the blue symbols, I then have to hit the shift/alt key afterwards to get back to the regular keys. Otherwise I start typing words, but they come out like !@#IK123. It's driving me a bit mad.

    Also, there is no visual indicator that I can find of whether the shift/alt keys are in "action" so to speak.

    I tested typing in a note program, and did not have this problem. The cursor changed shape when I hit the shift/alt keys, and reverted back to standards unless I hit them again.

    Does anyone have a suggestion/solution to this problem? Samsung's support website is so lame, seriously. Or could this be an Android problem? Too many choices as to where I should post this one!

    TIA,
    Katherine

    I've moved your thread over to the Samsung Captivate Glide (support) Forum. Hopefully, users of the same device might be able to assist you.

    Double clicking on the shift enables caps lock same for the Blue alt key. Are you taping it twice by accident to keep it enabled? Single tap it again to remove it.
