    Hi everyone,

    New to forums and new to Android!!

    Got myself a Hero about a month ago and came across this forum around the same time. Loads of good tips on starting out, essential apps to download and cool stuff on customising my phone. Thank you all for the great tips :)

    I would've been happy as a passive forum user and keeping up with other's posts but my Hero has recently developed a problem, prompting me to sign up and get some advice from you guys who have more experience.

    Basically in the last couple of days my soft keyboard has randomly decided to change how it displays and works! 2 main problems:
    - sometimes soft keyboard does not go into landscape mode when phone is orientated (seen suggestions on here of calibrating keyboard and installing bubble and running the bubble clibration: tried both of these but has not solved problem).
    - when in text message mode the predictive text box has moved and is now being overlayed on the text message body, so basically i cannot see what i am typing!!! :mad: (the predictive text box used to be displayed above the text message body). This problem is the most annoying out of the two!!!

    I've tried searching on the forum for the right place to post this but still dont know my way around (I know what you're thinking: bl**dy noob!), please advise! I have not seen any similar posts, hope I am not the first to encounter the problem!! Please help, I love my new phone but this is really doing my loaf in!!

    Ta,

    Rich
