Another user with a Bold 9000 on the Rogers network reported that he gets "Check Spelling As You Type" with BlackBerry Messenger. It seems that "Check Spelling As You Type" is a feature of the OS rather than the individual applications because I get it with Yahoo! Messenger and not with BlackBerry Messenger. I speculate that there is a bug in the OS version that AT&T is using which has been corrected in the version of the OS used by Rogers.
