    Is it just me or is the qwerty Keyboard, going from vertical to horizontal is very very slow. I'm like sitting there waiting forever for it to change, and by that time i forgot what i was going to write.

    is there a fix or for that matter a quick button you can press to switch it?

    I'm at the Verizon store now and love the keyboard. Vertical to horizontal on the droid is quicker but this isn't THAT slow. Still undecided on this or the droid....

    I find the keyboard to switch rather quickly. At least quick enough for me.

    I do feel like there is a delay. It's not awful, but not as fast as when you pull out the keyboard on the droid.

    If you turn off the "auto" setting, how do you do it manually?

    Needsdecaf- I think when you turn off the auto setting, it renders the phone unable to switch orientation. It will always be in portrait.

    I have found the rotate to be delayed. I kinda got used to it until i pulled out my itouch this morning and realized how much faster it rotated than my eris....

    I thought it was fine since I bought it November, but this past weekend all the sudden it started taking 10-15 seconds to switch to landscape. I hadn't downloaded anything that would make it slower. Strange.
