What software version are you running? I am on 188.8.131.52 and it is in Options/Typing & Input/Spell Check. In OS 5.0 I think it was in Options/Keyboard/
From the User's Manual
Change options for checking spelling
You can change the type and length of words that the spelling checker includes when checking spelling.
1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options ICON.
2. Click Spell Check.
3. Change one or more options.
4. Press the Menu key.
5. Click Save.
BTW, the Options Icon looks like a wrench.
Other than this I don't know what to tell you. Maybe take your unit back to the store and see if they can help. Good Luck.
