    Of course, I absolutely love the Droid Pro and will never ever ever think about going back to a Blackberry after owning a device 10x more powerful. I feel like I went from a flip phone to a Blackberry for the first time!


    Anyway, there are still a few things that this phone is missing and after doing the 2.2.6 upgrade I really want to find out how I can get these features.


    The first is AUTOCORRECT. Why do I type "im" and it does not autocorrect itself to "I'll" which is the most basic of all phone functions.



    The second is SHORTCUTS. I used to absolutely love the Quicklaunch application on my Blackberry where I could side press, and then press a letter to get wherever I was trying to get to. I would like some kind of application where all I have to do is hold down the letter "M" for example to launch Memopad, etc.



    Any thoughts about either of these?

    Autocorrect is lacking on this phone a bit I must agree. For quicklaunch settings go to settings then applications then quicklaunch. You can set a shortcut for the side button as well as all the letters on the keyboard. On the Pro they require pressing/holding search+ letter to launch tho such as search+ G = gmail.

    This is my exact complaint the idea of a shortcut is to save you time.... last time I checked the definition of shortcut ha.... and having to hold the search key while then pressing a letter is even more annoyint than the alternative in my opinion.

    How about just press a letter or holding a letter by chance?
