    okay so iv always had a great touch screen phone. i had a samsung instinct for like 2 years and it was GREAT. one of the best landscape text menus ever and i was a BEAST at texting. then i got the htc hero and i couldnt even use to landscape texting at all. i got use to using the normal upright iphone style texting. after like 3 months of using it i started to hate it and cant deal with it anymore to a point where i hate texting long texts. is tehre ever gonna be an update to fix the CRAPPY landscape?!?!?!??!?!?

    Just do shorter texts.
    Or change your phone.

    Definitely a good idea to calibrate whenever you find yourself getting frustrated with it.

    Ive always used the phone keypad rather than a qwerty one and its been perfect.

    I hated it too, in fact i bought Better Keyboard to start with but reverted back to the stock one of which i now really like after 2 months of use.
    Once it gets used to your own words and texting style it's great!
    I can even type long texts with my thumbs ala non touchscreen mobiles!!

    The problem is that you can calibrate the k/b in portrait mode, but it doesn't seem to let you calibrate it in landscape mode. At least mine doesn't seem to let me.

    I think its great but then I have small fingers, it takes time though to get used to. I had a physical keyboard before and thought I would would hate it :)

    That's true, but once calibrated it works really well in portrait mode (in my experience anyway)

    The keyboard is the only reason I'd get rid of my Hero. On a normal sized keyboard I can touch type about 120 words per minute and audio type around 80 WPM so I'm not exactly a beginner.

    I found using the compact QWERTY keyboard was a little better but you have to keep an eye on the auto word selection. It reverts to the standard QWERTY when you use it in landscape.

    Cheers Al
