Does anyone know how to get a WP8 device to auto capitalise the character i? iOS performs this operation and it's really annoying me on my Lumia 820.

    In what context are you trying to do this. Any particular app? Or is this globally failing. Is it failing any other capitalization? Also what language /country settings are set on the phone?

    I'm using my phone with English keyboard and it does capitalize "i" character. Jan 11 '14 at 23:57
  • Hoping that you just want to capitalize i in 'I know what I want'.

  • Unverified myself, but this link suggests that it's only a problem for GB dictionary, and US works fine: r2.reddit.com/r/windowsphone/comments/1ko3k0/… Jan 13 '14 at 23:37

Change to the English keyboard.

If you're unable to do so, go to Settings and add the keyboard.

You can have multiple keyboards at the same time and easily switch between them (I have Swedish, English and French keyboards).

    Just an FYI, ` backticks are meant for formatting inline code samples, console commands and such. Please don't use them for general-purpose highlighting. If you want to highlight certain words or terms, use bold or italics. For menu options, quotation marks also work well. Thanks!
