    Phones, tech, that sort of stuff
    GMail is almost unsable when composing a message - the Send and discard and Save buttons take up more room than you get space to type, resulting in just 3 or so lines of visible text.

    To make it worse, the typing font is massive.

    Does anyone know how to...

    1) Remove the stupid Send/Discard/Save buttons above the keyboard. Clicking the menu soft-key brings up those options anyway, meaning they literally are nothing but a waste of typing space

    2) Change the font size, so we can see more text as we type. When reading a message, the font is much smaller and still very readable...

    3) Change the keyboard to something shorter, gaining more room to see messages we compsose

    I got this phone to GMail with so this is pretty annoying.
    Any advice much appreciated!

    When you get the 2.2 froyo update, I believe there will be a newer gmail client in there that doesn't have these buttons.

    The main problem on the wildfire is the low resolution screen, making things that are normally small - bigger.
