Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do what I can to provide the right answer to your question.
I suspect that when you put in anything like this:
that the IM system you are using sees that as a hyperlink object, an email address, or the like.
Try leaving periods out. If that prevents the problem, then the problem is the period.
Then try (if the period is the problem) typing it like this:
anything. anyotherwords
in other words, with a space after the period. Tell me what that looks like, and I will instruct you further. (I am presuming that you have an Android tablet or phone device... if it is something else, let me know. Also let me know what IM app you are using... that might help.)

Here's the problem. We already figured that part out and im sitting with a computer guy. But no one else here with the same phone has to space after the period but me?

Does show up on my track phone
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.
That depends upon what apps are on the phone, and what settings.
Also if you have a different data service provider than everyone else, perhaps, though I doubt that's it.
