    I use Swype in portrait view for 100% of my texting. I use my pointer finger for typing/swyping. Give it a try, it's free. There is a thread somewhere around here with the download link/directions. FYI - I can type MUCH faster with Swype in portrait view than I can with a soft or hard keyboard in landscape view. It is an amazing software.

    I had issues with better keyboard as far as being able to choose it as the default.I would check it and then when i went to send a text the default keyboard was still in use. Any thoughts on this Swype crazy I been seeing. I hate the thought of installing a 3rd party file to my phone but i need a change. And lol @ the thumb wrestling mabey I can challenge Lincon Hawk to a match.

    I've installed Swype last night, the black version with the red light up option. It's pretty sweet, I just need to get used to swyping vs pecking.

    Coming from a BB Pearl which has a 4x4 keyboard I got pretty good at typing with XT9 or whatever BB equivalent is along with adaptive text. Found out I could use that on the DI in portrait mode and then it switched to full QWERTY in landscape mode. Thats pretty good solution for me. Although I would like a better portrait keyboard, I'll take this for now.

    Try holding down on the input box and then a popup will show with some options. One of them is Input Method. Tap that and then select the keyboard of your choice. Even after setting Swype as my default I had to do this before it started showing up all the time.
