Small but annoying messaging problem

    Hi to everyone on the forum.

    I have no idea what has happened, or what I have done, but now whenever I go to compose a text message my Hero types all the letters in CAPITALS.

    I know how to change the letters from non-capitals, and it is not changing anything...all I can do is change it to all lowercase or all capitals. So when I want to start a letter with a capital first letter im having to switch modes just to do it!!

    Before, I did experience a same problem with the phone not registering the lower and upper case properly when begginning a text, sometimes I would have to let the messaging app load for about 20 seconds for it to type correctly.

    Very annoying as I use the phone for Business so its important that I get it sorted!

    Anyone had a similar problem?

    I really like this phone, but there seems to be an awful lot of things that are wrong with it. I guess we cant complain as its such a customizable phone so there's bound to be bugs...

    Welcome to the AF Froums!

    Do you use the default text messaging app, or are you using chompSMS or Handcent?

    Sorry, had some problems with internet yesterday and couldn't reply.

    I do use the default messaging app yes. I would use a different one but isn't it true that you cant delete the default one? So I would be getting two messages everytime a text comes through, one for the default and one for the other. Plus im not very keen on messing around with a 3rd party messaging app as I dont trust that I will always get my messages through.:eek:

    I also like to use the stock messaging app but if you did use another you can stop getting 2 sets of messages by unchecking notifications in the stock messenging app.

    As far as the capitals go sorry no idea...have you tried turning phone off and on?
