    silly question...

    Advertisement



    Im thinking about getting a curve on tmobile mainly because my pearl's buttons are going and to be honest, as much as i love my pearl, the suretype can be frusterating.

    i have a pretty silly and random question for curve owners; do you have a choice for your text? For example, when i had a sidekick, i got to choose if i wanted to use standard initial caps or all lowercase. [like "I am tired" or "i am tired".]

    i thought maybe this would be an option since the curve has a full qwerty keyboard. But i wanted to hear from owners before i take the plunge.

    it has the same shortcuts - a double space will put in the . and capitalize the next word for your It will also capitalize the first letter you type for you.

    Is there a way to disable that though? To just type in lowercase instead of capitalizing the letter of each sentence and proper names & words.

    Ive had 4 diff models of BBs. Two with suretype, two with full keyboard. Before I got this 8300 I had the 8100 pearl. I will NEVER have another device besides the 83xx series. You will not be dissapointed with the Curve.

    Haha yeah, I have this one friend that has a "regular" phone and uses T9 and I can NEVER tell what she says. I always use proper English, I was just curious if the Curve had that particular option.

    As for the Curve races I keep reading, I think I may go for it once I can officially upgrade... But I'm still weighing my options.

    yep, so, if you wanted to type in shorthand, you can, if you don't want it to auto-caps, I don't know how hard it is to kill it....
