    Hello! I just switched to a HTC Eris and I'm loving it so far. I have just one question that I can't figure out. When you're filling out a form online, is it possible to switch between boxes with the keyboard instead of having to press on the next box with your finger? Something like the "next" button on the iPhone? This is a small problem but is really starting to bug me.

    Thank you!

    No idea about the Eris, but on the N1 there is in fact a "next" button on the virtual keyboard. Could try asking in the Eris' specific forum, or maybe some keyboard replacements will provide?

    Let me clarify: the trackball usually lets you move among actionable items (hyperlinks, form boxes) on a web page.

    Works just fine in regular applications, too. I use it regularly.
