Capitalization - Virtual Keyboard

Is there any way to shorten the length of time it takes for the letter to capitalize when pressing and holding while using the virtual keyboard?  I have looked through manual, menus and forum posts and I have not been able to find how to shorten this time. 

 

Thx in advance!

Re: Capitalization - Virtual Keyboard

Hi Mad_BB and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!

 

The timing on capitalization cannot be changed.  This was set by design to avoid capitalizing letters by mistake if holding the letter down too long.  Some users may be quicker than others when typing using the virtual keyboard.

 

Thanks

Re: Capitalization - Virtual Keyboard

There is a very large disparity between the physical keyboard and the virtual keyboard in the length of time you have to hold the letter down to get capitalization.  The keyboard seems to be about 1 second and the virtual keyboard about 3 seconds.  It is so slow I have abandoned the virtual keyboard altogether as my emails look like they were written by a child with the lack of capitals.  It's a shame because I prefer the virtual keyboard too.

 

I know its a different OS but my boss's Storm the virtual keyboard takes about 1 second (about the same as the physical keyboard on my Torch).

 

thanks for the reply tho!
