    On the horizontal keyboard, what's the quickest way to send a text? Only way I've figured out is to hit menu key, then send. No big deal if that's the fastest way, just checking. There's so many shortcuts to be learned on this thing it's unbelievable. Really enjoying it so far though, quite a change from my Blackberry Curve.

    the voice messaging has been excellent for me. hit the mic button on the keyboard (portrait/landscape dont matter) recite, send. the safest way to drive and text ;)

    With the voice messaging, I have a couple of questions. How do you start out your sentence with a capital letter? Next question is how do you make a multi-sentence text? Like how do you add a period and then start the next sentence? Thanks!

    sure it's qwerty....look into the settings but qwerty should be default....

    wait...it still uses the HTC keyboard so that shouldn't have changed your keyboard at all

    Hmmm, my default was the old style where #2 is "abc" etc. It didn't affect my current keyboard. Once I loaded it, I enabled the program in Settings> Language and Keyboard, and then once starting a message, I clicked in the "enter text" field and selected Handcent as the program...just like when using Swype.

    Anyway, mine's not a full keyboard and I dont' see how to change it. I dl'd it from the apps market? :thinking:

    Yep, the SMS program was the ticket. There's some great options in this app, thanks for the tip.

    Can anyone help me. I have the Incredible and I use the app Handcent. When I receive a long text it breaks the message up into several pieces and right in the middle of a word. Is there anyway to fix it so it all comes in one piece? Makes it hard to forward.
    Thanks Tom

    I want a fix for this as well. I know it is Verizon's fault but.....can it be fixed with an app or something. I hate Verizon's txt character limit on text messages......

    That depends on which service provider sent the original text. If it someone other than verizon its only going to allow 160 characters at a time. If its verizon to verizon then it should convert it automatically to a mms

    This message was sent from AT&T. All these providers need to get on the same page. Would rooting my phone help?
