Typing on Bold 9700 adds a period whenever it feels like it.

I have an unlocked european Bold 9700, running 5.0.0.321 (platform 5.1.0.90).  However am using it in the US as an AT&T user/customer.

 

The biggest problem I have. Is the the keyboard whenever. I type a bbm, sms or. A email, will add a period, whenever it feels like it.  Then it will. Capitalize the next word, as if I were starting a new. Sentence.  So it will look like how I have typed it here.

 

Pretty crazy huh?  I tried rebooting, updating, sent service books and nothing works.  I will hit the spacebar key and it sometimes will act like I hit it twice.  

 

Need help because I paid a lot for the phone in England (I thinks it's a Rogers phone) and can't exchange it for a new AT&T version.

You need to change the settings for the spell check options... And uncheck the part where it spell checks while you type.

Problem is you are pressing the space bar long enough to get a key repeat (just as if you hold a letter key down). A double space bar press or two spaces because of a repeat is the shortcut for the end of a sentence, automatically putting the period in and capitalizing the next letter. A very useful shortcut but very annoying if you don't intend it, I'm sure.

Re: Typing on Bold 9700 adds a period whenever it feels like it.

I am having the same problem and I am not pressing space bar twice of even for a longer period of time. It is getting worse and worse. Is there a. Way to undo the default to add a period when it thinks you have pushed the space bar. Twice?
