    Recently retired, I certainly don't miss my crackberry or the messages of alarm it regularly provided me as a computer security officer. But I do miss two built-in software functions:
    • Automatic typo correction -- If I typed adn it was automagically corrected to and.
    • Automatic sentence termination -- Entering two spaces after a character string automagically replaced the first space with a period.
    I wonder if there are software pkgs that do this reliably on the 700p (though my device is momentarily stable and I might choose not to tempt fate).

    Thanx!

    I think RNS puts out a program I believe it is called textplus. Also the treo makes some auto corrections.

    Textplus wil fix the "adn' to "and"
    but it won't fix the "two spaces" situation.

    Hadn't Noticed. Also didn't search, but is there a list of the common misspellings that are corrected automatically?

    mine does but I am not sure if its a function in the treo or SpellCheck application.

    I just tried it. It corrected "adn" to and. I have no spelling software installed.

    It also corrects "teh"

    I have a file called autoreplaceDB that all these changes are housed, I am not sure how to modify it?
    I think it belongs to documents to go but I am not sure since removing DTG is impossible because it is in ROM
