    Anyone else notice that the app for texting is SIGNIFICANTLY slower since the upgrade? I see a delay in starting the program and even worse when going from a conversation back out to the screen with all conversations. Is it just me?

    One thing I really really dislike is they made the send button much smaller, so small you can't hit send after typing some text. You have to either hit space twice for an auto period or push period, or just some other input to get rid of the auto word choices, even if you typed it right. 2.1 it was big enough to just hit the send button right under the word choices.

    I know you can turn off the word choices, but it just feels like a step backwards.

    Not sure what you mean. I'm using the stock text messaging app and the send button is plenty big. I tried the three keyboards I have installed and it's the same for all of them.

    I am auctually really happy with the changes to the default txt program! It seems quicker, has the bigger window to tap to start txting and of course the new send key <3 it!

    Another thing I noticed is even if you can hit the send button when the words are there, It will not send. 2.1 can. I guess you just have to get rid of the word choices before sending. Kinda nagging. And the button is def smaller. The bar of words pretty much covers the entire button, whereas in 2.1 the button was taller, and I was able to hit send tapping the bottom of the button.

    Yeah I have to agree with pretty much everyone else - it's much snappier and the bigger text box and send button are great new touches to the upgrade.

    Ok, I see the problem. I use Swype or Swiftkey keyboards and they don't have this problem. I switched back to the stock HTC keyboard and it's suggest words cover the button.

    Yea, just loaded default keyboard and now I see the issue.

    In other news. Swiftkey loads a lot faster than it did before in Handcent.
