    So is there an easy way to type the word "I'll". I have to upper case the letters then type "I", then switch to the symbols and type ', then back to the letters to type "ll". This just seems way to much for a little word. My BB Tour would recognize so much easier. If there is no easy way to type it, wonder if Froyo will fix it.

    Also when typing a period, why do I have to double space manually? It should move 2 spaces over automatically.

    People who "grew up" during my time were taught to double-space after a period. But that's no longer the standard. Now it's just one space after a period. I learned that from someone in the typesetting business in the 90s and was surprised, but a subsequent search on Google bore that out.

    In the stock typing application you can simply hit the space bar twice and it will install a period followed by a double space. As far as I'll goes, just type "il" and then hit space. If you have it set to auto correct then it will automatically turn that into I'll

    If you are using swype an apostrophe can be added to a word by passing over the "n" key where you want the ' to appear. It doesn't seem to work 100% but it does work for "I'll"....
