On normal key board, when we want "@", we just hold shift and press "2" will do. But this dont work on the prime keyboard.i hv to unmount everytime i need to key "@". Anyone can help please? Thanks much.

    If you are using Smart Keyboard it can interfere with the shift key.
    Not sure what you're experiencing, but my issue was the shift key would only work to capitalize letters but would not work to type the upper symbols

    If you are using a third party keyboard there is a setting to use text prediction with the dock, this has to be turned off

    Check your language settings for your keyboard. US vs UK have the @ and ' swapped. If you do not select the ASUS English (UK) keyboard, it will revert to a US layout.

    I'm having the same issue with the TF101. I have tried hard resetting, rooting, and am currently in the process of downgrading to see if any of that works. I also emailed ASUS technical support who said they would get back to me within 48 hours but have not for almost an entire week. Any luck with this so far?

    Did you check to make sure you have the proper keyboard language selected (ASUS English (US) vs ASUS English (UK))?

    If you are using any other virtual keyboard as your selection when you are using the physical keyboard, it will default to a US layout and SHIFT 2 is @, SHIFT ' is "

    I have checked to make sure about that several times. The issue 9at least for me0 is that I cannot even enter upper-case characters, so I know the shift key isn't working at all, along with the forward slash. Theo workaround I have for entering capital letters is to use caps lock.

    When you said the same issue, I assumed it was the @ and " that the OP listed.

    Sounds like your shift key is hosed. May need to look at exchanging it. Did you try both the right and left keys? If one is not working, you can either exchange to the retailer or RMA to ASUS

    Hmm, I guess I assumed it was the same problem because that's the most regular problem I face while entering email addresses. I did try returning it to the retailer, BestBuy, who said that I needed to contact the manufacturer. I did just receive a reply from ASUS saying that they would RMA it. Thanks1
