General Is there any way to make the phone stop capitalizing the first letter of every sentence?

    It really bothers me. Is there a setting I can change or a keyboard app I can download so that autocapitalization is off? Thanks in advance!

    I did... many times. I've looked at every setting on that and there's no way that i've found to disable automatic capitalization of the first letter.

    1) I am not sure how this is a problem
    2) I know non-stock keyboards like Swype have the option to disable or enable auto-caps.

    1) If I'm having a fast-paced conversation on AIM or text, I don't like to have to capitalize the first letter of a fragment. I'm an english major, and have some odd OCD with half-formal typing. I like it to be all or nothing.
    2) I don't see Swype at the app store. I've tried Better Keyboard and there's no way I've found to disable autocapitalize on that, either. Does anyone have any specific information?

    Go to Swype.com. The keyboard is only in Beta, but I believe it has recently gone to open beta, so you shouldn't have trouble getting a copy licensed.

    Also, I just always type formally. ><

    Thanks! I downloaded it and I love it. It has an option to turn off autocorrect and the actual "swype" function makes not having a physical keyboard much more bearable.

    Yeah, it's really great. I used to want an iPhone... but now with the MIUI rom and Swype, I think what I have is better. Definitely can't go back to just pecking at keys on a screen. :)

    The Gingerbread keyboard has an option in the menus to disable 'auto capitalization'. I looked and couldn't find that option on the stock keyboard.
