    my ears are burning:D
    unfortunately i don't know:eek: my phone is rooted and running a custom rom so i use shootme for screen shots, and i don't watch vids on the phone.
    so i guess i'm bloody useless on this one:eek:
    when are we going to get you modding your phone, or are you running 2.2 already:p

    Hi again lol must be a screen capture prog somewhere. Running 2.2.
    Found a good notepad program colornot
    Love the phone but still hate typing on it
    Makes it look like I can't spell!

    There should maybe be a thread of simple apps to download for newbies as looking on the market doesn't help

    Thanks very much
    My main keyboard problem also is it keeps popping up and blocking the screen when I am trying to sign in somewhere,or read the page

    It's there more times than anything else :(

    Also the box that comes up to share That also seems to appear whenever I don't want it and not when I do lol

    Love the phone but it is SO different from my old nokia:mad:

    checkout this link, has link in for english only swype as well as instructions how to install:p
    with swype instead of pressing each letter individually, you draw a line from letter to letter for the word you want, very accurate and fast

    Thanks Will give it a try. But the keyboard will still insist on popping up too many times again won't it? lol


    Quick question also while you are here - know it should be a separate thread-

    I tend to send a text message more than making a call

    Seems a slow proces to bring up the option of texting instead of calling Is there an option anywhere to display 5 or 6 of my contacts where I can click on one to send a message and not call?
    I have found myself accidently messaging their landline also whoops :mad:

    no it shouldn't but there are settings to turn the popups off.
    as for texting
    long press on empty space on home screen,shortcut, direct message,choose contact, new message.
    the contact pic will show on screen with a small message icon, press on it and you are into sending a message to that contact

    popups for which keyboard?
    if you look in menu, settings, language & keyboards, select which keyboard
    you should have an option for popup or prediction
    as for restoring anything to a home screen, you can save current setup
    menu, scenes, save........and then restore the same way......or if too late
    it will be under widgets when you add to a home screen.
    the other option you have is to add people widget to home screen, add favourites(or whichever group you fancy)......then add person,(plus sign) which you can add message or call, or simply view contact and from there select text or call
    you can also edit groups in people by pressing second icon from left on bottom strip which is
    all/groups/online directories/call history
    hope this makes sense:p
    i'd put up screenshots but for some reason this forum won't let me grrrrr:thinking:
    thought i'd give a thanks back for all the thanks given

    Regarding the people widget. Have people i only phone there. Want the ones I message separate . As when i press a contact I phone them by mistake lol
    What am I doing wrong?


    Also thanks for good idea saving scene to restore email window.

    its all good, i've just had the phone a few months more than you:p
    with the people widget, after you choose contact you select default option from
    view contact/call mobile/new message:D
