    On the original Droid, the word "I" would capitalize as well as proper names, e.g., Wendy, Ryan, Jeff, etc. On the new X they do not capitalize. Is there any way to do this? Thanks in advance.

    Do you have "autocapitalization" checked? Settings > Language & Keyboard > Swype (or Multitouch)

    Yes. It will capitalize the first letter of a sentence. Just not things like I. It also doesn't recognize contractions like I'll.

    That's really odd. Mine works fine (I'm using Swype on a Droid X and I did not just have to punctuate or capitalize the words I'm or I).

    Would really appreciate it if some one could figure out how to modify the default autocorrect on the multi touch keyboard.

    My request. i > I , ill > I'll , and ou > you .

    If you can figure out how to do this, I will make you breakfast.

    You can't. Have to use another keyboard. HTC IME mod keyboard is my favorite.

    That website lets you theme the keyboard.

    Well, I'm using multi-touch so that may be the issue. Hmmm, maybe I'll try to learn swype.

    It's a joke that we are forced to use a 3rd Party keyboard...I mean it's a Smartphone for crying out loud...Motorola couldn't learn how to program it to identify "I"?

    As far as conjunctions, you can actually manually add those yourself (just type out the conjunction and before you hit space to start a new word, look for it above the keyboard in a listing of suggested words and choose it for safe keeping).

    They still don't autocorrect on multi-touch. It's hard to believe the Droid texting works better than the Droid X...
