Post No "Check Spelling As You Type" on BB Messenger

Please Login to Remove!

I am getting "Check Spelling As You Type" on e-mails, SMS, MMS and PIN messages but not on the BlackBerry Messenger. Is that the way it is supposed to be?

I don't believe it's built into to any IM-type apps, like BlackBerry Messenger, AIM, Google Talk. If it's there, I haven't found it.

I believe that "Check Spelling As You Type" is a feature the OS. I have v4.6.0.167. One can find it in Settings - Options - Spell Check. I have Yahoo! Messenger 2.1.37 and it works there. Ironically, not in BlackBerry Messenger.

I had a quick question as well...

As I type SMS/MMS messages there is no spell check unless word is underlined, so than you gotta click on tha word and select right word from list.

But I wanna see spell check as I write, jus like on my Pearl.

I have never had a Pearl but I understant that the Pearl has "SureType" which predicts what one intends to type while the Bold does not. The "Check Spelling As You Type" feature in the Bold works in the manner that you described: by underlining the misspelled word. The problem that I am facing is that it is not underlining misspelled words in BlackBerry Messenger.

Well in that case, when you have a Conversation wit a BB contact you might wanna try Menu than go to Spell Check on your BB Mesenger.

I know it might seem obvious but its a start, lol.

It does spell check in the mail app (Underlines misspelled words and when you click on it it gives you the options for correction) but not the BB Messager/SMS. I believe that because most IM messages are using short cut words (ru ok) to where the spell checker would be useless.

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.
