    Does anyone know if android has an autotext feature where I can auto correct words. Former bb users should know what I'm talking about.

    Thanks

    people have installed the hero virtual keyboard that has a better autotext / predictive text than the native android browser. if you search around, i'm sure you'll find it (i don't have the links offhand)

    No it doesnt, and it is frustrating that the messaging on android is so basic and sucky, Handcent SMS has the autotext feature, but once you use handcent for awhile you'll realize its buggy and this stuff should be implemented into the default app.

    search for "FireKeys" on Android forum... there is a free version with a limit of 10 shortcuts and a paid version with unlimited.

    It'll get better pretty quick. Android is catching on like wildfire. 3.0 is going to be slick.

    Personally I've never experienced any bugs at all with handcent. I've been using it since the second day I had my phone.

    Handcent is a godsend compared to the default message app. I like the popup featre but as mentioned it can be buggy but itsnot bad. My main issue is when I get a call and text at the same time the phone freaks out and temporarily locks up.
