    Hello! When typing on the keyboard, I frequently use secondary symbols, by holding down a button and wait for the secondary options to appear. However, it takes some time for that to happen, and the unnatural pauses makes me a bit frustrated when i'm typing. I like typing fast, and I barely tap the buttons when typing. I wanna know how I can decrease the time needed to hold down the buttons until the secondary options appear, so that I can test a few values and find something I am comfortable with. :)

    Help is much appreciated! ^^

    Specs:
    Model Number HTC Desire A8181
    Firmware Version: 2.2
    Baseband Version: 32.43.00.32U_5.09.00.20

    Build Number: 2.09.405.8 CL218634 release-keys

    Is it any way to achieve this? Btw - I believe the delay time has been reduced a bit with the latest update: 2.2 ^^ (I don't know that for sure tho). But even more tweaking would be neat!

    I hope this is possible without rooting the phone :p But if you know how to do it on a rooted phone, do tell!

    Not sure on the stock keyboard but I know for sure that it's one of (the many) options available on Smart Keyboard pro (on the market) - this is a paid app but imho worth the cash (there are alternatives that you may want to test out before actually buying though.

    Hope this helps.

    Ah, thanks! I will check it out :) Alas, paid market is not available in Norway for some reason... There are many workarounds however :p I'll test the trial at least. Hopefully they support my language and some customization ^^
