    I just received a Droid Incredible and I believe it's a great phone, but there is one thing on it that makes it difficult for me to fully enjoy using it. I use the calendar everyday to type meetings, appointments, and reminders. I noticed that when I try to type anything using either calendar (HTC or Google's calendar), the portrait orientation is the only option that is offered.

    I know that the landscape keyboard is available for everything else (text messages, internet, etc.), but I'm forced to type all of my calendar appointments using the portrait keyboard. This slows down my typing whenever I use the calendar. I tried using the voice to text option to input text, but it is not always accurate.

    Is there an option under calendars that I did not find that makes it possible for me to type in the landscape orientation or do I need to download an app that will make it possible to type in the calendar using the landscape keyboard?

    I don't believe there's a way to change that. I always say that more options are better and fewer.

    Nope...also a frustration of mine, too. I still can't type quite accurately on the landscap keyboard either, but it is better for my big hands than the vertical one. The only workable solution I've come up with is to select the "compact qwerty" keyboard. This selection allows you to use the T9 choice on a slightly larger keypad (larger keys than the qwerty choice) in upright mode, but it switches to the full landscape mode in all apps that allow a landscape mode.

    +1. Minor annoyance and wish it functioned like SMS/Email.

    Thanks for the replies. It's good to know that I'm not the only one that finds it slightly annoying that landscape keyboard is not available when using the calendar. I hope HTC corrects this when Android 2.2 gets released later this year.
