    I miss typing in someones name on my BB keyboard and then pressing their name to call them. Love the Hero though.
    I know the hero can do this, but there are two things I dislike:

    1. It uses a keypad not a keyboard.
    2. The keypad takes up so much space that you can only see 2.5 names at a time, not 7 or 8+ like a BB. ( I know about pressing the button to remove the keypad to see more names)

    Is there any way of changing #1 or #2 on my Hero?

    Also,
    What is the fastest way to copy someone's number and paste it in a text message to someone else? ...A task I seem to do more often than I would like. The send contact as a vcard is cool, but not all phones can read vcards.

    In the contacts program, press and hold on the contact's number and select 'copy all'. Then paste it in your text message.

    You can start spelling their name on the keypad and it will eventually come to the top...usually within the first 3 or 4 letters.
