i have some obsessive tendencies, and a need for keeping to my own personal style of writing is absolutely key to my comfort level when typing anything. i strongly dislike uppercase letters. is there any code/script/hack i can use to disable auto-capitalization on my blackberry?
if it's a complicated hack, i don't mind it. i'm decent with coding and love to learn more.
i just am really bothered by having to go back to mess with capitalization issues when texting/posting to a social network.

Not so ironic 'cause here I am!
You can substitute some letters so they don't capitalize. For example, when you type "i've", your BlackBerry is programmed to change it to "I've", with a capital "I". This, you can fix. As for your phone putting a capital letter after a period, I can't help you there.
To do word substitution, follow this path from your homescreen: (please note that I use OS 7 and you don't, so your path might differ slightly) Options>Typing and Language>Word Substitution. Scroll down to a word you wish to substitute, press the menu key and select Edit. Scroll to the "With:" and replace that word with the one you want (supposedly without the capital). Now press the menu key again and select Save.
That will take care of the capitalizing of the letter "I". As for starting a sentence without a capital, you're on your own. I hope I've been partially helpful to you.
