I get your point, but that is totally different.

It is almost impossible for me to use the hardware KB without the top button disabled as the way I hold it my finger curls around & rests right on that button.

The KB period thing on the other hand, I never even realized it did that until I read it here......

i understand that and it wasn't really a comment directed to you. but i have never hit the keyboard by mistake and usually if i'm texting i turn off the backlight with the keyboard out so i dont have to keep sliding it.

basically just saying to each his own, but there was no need for the put down comment earlier.

Re: While texting with hardare keyboard, it keeps adding a period if I double space?

Anyone happen to figure out if there's a registry key that controls this? Can anyone provide guidance on where to look and what kind of naming schema to look for?

Auto-periods are particularly annoying when ending sentences with smiley faces or other emoticons, no one wants this:

"That was fun :-). Wanna do it again?"

We want this:
"That was fun :-) Wanna do it again?"

Justified enough? Perhaps the OP would have received a warmer response if his username wasn't "Richcop", (few people like the rich or cops, having both in there is just asking for trouble ;-)

Re: While texting with hardare keyboard, it keeps adding a period if I double space?

maybe the OP meant when you end your sentence and put the necessary punctuation mark. but when you double space to start the new sentence, the second spacing automatically adds the period. my phone didnt start doing this 'til recently and it was bugging me. thought i was the only one having this "issue". but it with me though, it doesn't happen all the time. but it does happen each time on facebook using my phone.

Anyhow, there appears to be no conceivable reason where someone would be putting a double space and not wanting a period, but look through the registry as that is where the setting would be. I highly doubt anyone is going to take any time to try to "fix" this for you.
people type how they are going to type. i text differently to my girl than i do to a buddy or my mom. its all in your relationship to the person. and yes i am a male, and i have typed like that to my girl, mainly to make fun. normally when texting or typing, i do this...where i add a couple periods at the end of a sentence...mainly to make it easier for some of my friends to understand the end of a sentence.

how about when you start a text, get distracted and forgot you put a space in after a word? this is not just a concern for one person, as you can see from the other posts in this thread. what if they are trying to do a quick text and dont wanna fuss with the period? or on a longer text and look up at something and forgot they put a space? we are human after all.

asking for a fix that does not need to be fix? lol, guess you are a real person...mistakes happen. and it might need a fix to somebody, other than you. hmmm. how many roms have you used? bet you found some stuff that needed "fixing" yet wasnt a concern to the chef.

or what if, like some people are saying, they have a sensitive spacebar, or type really hard on the keyboard and do it on accident, guess its their fault that there is a feature they dont like, shame on them, shame on them.

I see threads on here that don't seem to have any purpose for me, but I don't stop and offer useless sarcasm. Thanks to everyone for the input. I was just wondering if there was a quick cab to fix this floating around as I am only going on my second year with Windows Mobiles devices and have read through almost every thread that looked relevant.
welcome to the club...its a long journey

this feature really sucks. Because it would end my sentence with three periods ... and the person would think I'm being sarcastic or bored.
