Space bar always adds period even when you dont want it too

[ Edited ]

My blackerry bold 9900 is acting up and is getting worse.  I have never droped or missused my phone. everytime i hit the space bar it put a period in .  it is making it imposible to send messages and emails.  I need this for work.  My wifes is doing the same thing, she also has the bold 9900.  Has this happened since we updated the latest update???????

 

please please help.

 

current version 7.1.0 bundle 2840

I know there is a feature to add the period when you double tap space, so maybe the phone thinks you double tap the space bar. Don't have a bold anymore so I can't test this but almost positive you can remove the feature from the settings. Open up the settings page and find the settings for keyboard. There should be an option for "Period shortcut" or something similar, try turning it off and then try typing a message.

okay found a setting for keyboard sensitivity, it was set to fast.  set to medium to slow, and seems to have helped.  will monitor for a while.  I did not find anything to disable the period space bar.

Well that's unfortunate, could of sworn there was a setting for it but maybe I'm wrong. On the BB10 phones, it has a setting for the period. Hopefully the keyboard sensitivity change has helped though, if I find where the setting for the period shortcut I will let you know. I have a bold at home I can power on to see if it exists.
