    Does anybody else have this problem? The caps lock button is not doing anything. To get lock caps I can hit the shift button twice, but what's the deal with the caps lock? What am I missing here?

    I saw another person on another site's forum (can't find the thread right now) with this problem and they returned their phone and that fixed it. Possibly just a problem with that button's hardware?

    My caps lock button works as it's supposed to, for what it's worth :)

    Well I solved my own problem. I was standing in line at Best Buy already when inspiration hit me. I am using SwiftKey as a replacement for the stock keyboard. Disabling that GAVE ME THE CAPS LOCK BACK.
    But I think I'd rather live without caps lock than without SwiftKey :)
    Since you get caps lock by hitting shift twice I still think it's a sad waste of real estate to have a caps lock button in the first place.

    Gotta agree with that. I do use the caps key now that I have it but never lusted for one with my D1. I was so used to the double shift press that I would much rather see a physical @ key or get my Alt key back!

    I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for your post. I was using swiftkey also, which I LOVE! and was on my way to the verizon store when I pulled over, deactivated swiftkey & it worked. I was soooo thankful! you saved me so much headache. I've been meaning to come back in here and note this sooner. So, yes, I have a wasted key because like you I am still using swiftkey.

    by the way, why is there an OK key on the right? I'd rather have had a right side shift key! who uses that! lol oh well, guess they can't taylor it to my needs right?

    Have a great day!

    Hey! Anytime! Thanks for the warm fuzzy feeling I got reading your post.
    But that's what the forum is all about, isn't it: sharing.
    I got so much great advice, ideas and tips here - I'm happy to be able to return a tiny bit of that.
