My phone came yesterday, and I've been trying to learn it this afternoon. One thing that's driving me bonkers is that I can't insert a space when trying to set up my Twitter login. When I enter my name, I need to enter a space between first and last, but when I change to the symbol screen and touch the space icon, nothing happens. Color me frustrated. Is there a keyboard tutorial anywhere that I can view? TIA

There is a keyboard tutorial during setup of the phone. If you want to look at it go to your app drawer by pressing the little triangle and hit Setup. This will take you through the setup process again and will be a keyboard tutorial in there.
I dont see why your keyboard wont space using the space bar though.
Is there one on the abc page?
Yes there is a spacebar on the ABC page with the letters showing up and also on the symbols page for normal typing but.......
When typing a username or email you have to actually press the 12# button and space there and then press ABC to go back to the lettering.
So say you want to type Cheeto Tiger as your twitter username, Follow these steps:
1. Type Cheeto
2. Press the 12# button
3. Press space bar
4. Press ABC key
5. Type Tiger
Thank you. That's exactly what I tried to do. But as soon as I touched the spacebar, it reacted, but it immediately deleted itself. Weird.
Are you sure its an actual space, or is it an underscore symbol?
yes, it was the spacebar, not the underscore symbol.
BTW, is there a way to subscribe to RSS feeds?
If you hit the space bar and the word your typing isn't in your personal dictionary it will change it to whichever word it has highleted green in the predictive text. Just add your word by pressing it on the predictive text and it will say "whatever word u added" saved.
