    Anyway to turn off the haptic feedback when using the keyboard? It gets a bit annoying for my tastes

    Settings: Locale and text:Touch Input:Text input:Vibrate when typing

    Hope this helps

    This is one of the first changes I made when I purchased my Hero. I am not a fan of the haptic feedback.

    I switched this off but now want it back on.
    If i tick the setting nothing happens.
    Any ideas?

    I turned this off with the sound because the keyboard was lagging really bad at times.

    Does turning off haptic feedback really improve using the keyboard?

    Wow, I turned mine off and the typing is f-a-s-t. I used to type a few words then wait for the phone to catch up. Now it keeps up with me, I made it make the little clicky sounds too..kinda neat

    Thanks all!

    Yes it does. Mine use to lag a lot but makes a big difference when turned off.

    You guys rock, the typing experience improved a lot after the adjustment. I still notice a slight lag tho. And even more so if I'm trying to listen to music and type in the browser. Looks like I'm still waiting on that update

    Holy crap that made a huge difference, it really helped with it lagging out and putting in symbols and whatnot. Never thought that would make such a difference.

    i guess i'm one of the only ones who turning off haptic feedback didn't do a damn thing for speed. Either way, the keyboard lags.

    Weird mine never has had lag, but I definitely prefer the feedback off. Just came back from a moment though so maybe that has something to do with it.

    After the update the phone does this when dialing a number now. I see no way to turn this off. Is it not possible to disable this feature or am I missing something?

    Is this a feature everyone just accepts, and doesn't mind, or is this something trivial I should figure out on my on?

    Sorry, that was from my Hero. I tried turning off prediction and correction too to see if it would eliminate the lag. It didn't. I am usually one or more words ahead of what it actually puts on the screen, and I'm no speed demon on touch keyboards. The keyboards for the Hero (stock and otherwise) are just absolutely, 100%, mind-killingly atrocious. I'm close to returning the phone for this one reason alone.

    Holy crap. Just picked up my wife's iPhone 3G to see if I just have recall bias or if there really is much difference in the keyboard response and accuracy. It's not even close. Not even on the same planet. In fact, if the iPhone's keyboard is a keyboard, I wouldn't even classify the Hero's as a keyboard... maybe something more like a reverse Polish boolean alphanumeric input brain teaser game. Something designed specifically to be challenging and put the user through a battery of psychological profile testing.

    Sorry to be harsh. I just thought I disliked the Hero keyboard before, but after getting a cold water splash in the face of what a keyboard should be, I'm just utterly dismayed. How can one phone with similar screen size and resolution, similar hardware specs, and also running on a unix variant OS be lightyears ahead? I could type paragraphs without it missing a single keystroke as fast as I could move my fingers. On the Hero I can't make it past a couple of words, if that. Usually several mistakes per word, and I have to really slow down my fingers and be very precise and deliberate in where I place them just to get that level of accuracy. Is it the capacitive screen technology? OS? Keyboard application? All of them?

    All I know is that this one thing alone would have me swapping back yesterday if all things were equal. But all things are not equal. As it stands, the Hero is free and so is the service. I'd have to purchase an iPhone and the service to swap back. Not an easy choice.

    I love a lot about my Hero, and the rest is growing on me. I've seen real promise in the community's ability to respond to problems and offer solutions. Some that I had just a few days ago have been addressed to at least some degree. But right now, there just isn't a usable input method on the Hero. I browse the web, but refuse to post to forums or send emails because the input is so atrocious. I dread getting a text because I know it will be an ordeal just responding.

    Please... Google, HTC, community... if you're listening, FIX THIS!@!
