ENG and Comma Buttons on Windows Phone 8.1 Keyboard

After I did my Windows Phone 8.1 Official upgrade yesterday to rid me of Windows Phone 8.1 Development Preview and the temporarily blocked upgrade due to issues with BitLocker, I noticed that my keyboard for writing email and SMS text messages was missing the comma button and instead, I had a button labelled ENG.

I’d seen this issue before when I first got my handset from Vodafone and the issue is that the phone ships with both the English (United Kingdom) and English (United States). The ENG button is to allow you to switch between the two languages but it’s a real pain because it moves the comma button to the symbol and numbers sub-keyboard which breaks your flow when typing.
