    I recently had surgery and my BB has been my constant companion even more than usual, now that I can move around some and get to my desk I have noticed that hitting space twice for a period is definitely a huge habit for me. I find myself doing it and then wondering what's wrong-why isn't it working?! Then promptly feeling like an *****. I feel a little better knowing I am not the only one.
    The other thing I catch myself doing much to often is holding a letter key down on my computer keyboard and wondering why it won't automatically capitalize. I have become WAY too spoiled!!

    I can't really even send emails from my laptop anymore. I can't seem to use the actually period button. I think that there should be a patch that allows me to hit space twice and get a period. I want all my devices to function like my BB.

    Not happened to me yet. That said, I've not had a BlackBerry for very long, so as the muscle memory builds up, it could well be on the cards.

    I keep holding down letters to capitalise them - MS word ought to have that as an option, it's a brilliant idea.

    Another one I do-i have auto text set up. If I type v my bb automatically fills in Dad (I know, I am lazy). My kids now know I am sending them an e-mail from my computer because anytime I mean to say Dad I will say v instead. Not only lazy, kinda dumb of me to not go back and change it, I guess. Lol.

    Can't say I've done that because I have to use a computer daily at work. I have noticed that my spelling is going downhill because I'm so used to SurePress

    I don't do the double spacebar hit on my computer, but just like theenak, my autotxt is set up kinda funky, so trying to type on a keyboard after a blackberry is interesting.

    Seriously, microsoft/everyone has made a huge mistake here. How often do you want bbbbbbbb when you hold the b key? Wouldn't a B be better? Or hold the key down and hit enter/space/scroll the mouse and get international characters?
    RIM: 1
    Everyone else: 0

    I'm getting bad enough I've come to the realization I need to write a suretype program for Microsoft! "Come on now, I've typed 3 letters, why isn't the word I want up there so I can click enter?!?"
