Default Bold 9700 Texting Annoyances (??)

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all, first time poster. I recently upgraded to the Bold 9700 from the 9000 (sticking trackball was drving me mad!). I 've noticed a few things while sending sms text messages that really bug me. First, while typing it seems to automatically add a (.) after every word, it appears to be some weird type of auto-fill, how do I disable this?

Secondly, is there any way to change the text layout? The new layout looks more like the BBM interface than a text message. Any help on the these two issues would be greatly appreciated!

2nd issue, no thats the way it is now and may or may not be changeable with a future OS upgrade.

the 1st issue is strange, however double pressing the space bar produces a . so is it possible its over-sensitive and its interpreting your key press as 2 key presses?

I tried lowering the sensitivity but it's still doing it, I was also careful not to double tap the spacebar. It doesn't do it after every word but enough to be an annoyance. Is there a way to stop it from automatically adding a period when you double tap the space bar? This may solve my issue.

Bummer on the layout. Thanks again.

Not sure if removing the double tap (this is done if rapidly double-tapping). If you pause between entering SPACE then it won't register; and shouldn't if you have OS .421/423 or higher.

Curious about the single tap ... maybe you should check your autotext entry's I'm wondering if you messed with a new entry there??

Try upgrading your fimware to the most recent (after a FULL backup) and see if this remedy's your issues.

Cheers.

PS I didn't like the threaded layout at ALL, but it grew on me over time and its actually implemented QUITE well.
