    Hey guys.

    Whenever I text, using either the default app, chompSMS or even a text box on the net somewhere, there is a huge delay between pressing a button and it actually coming up on screen.

    Sometimes, I'll type a 'Word' and the first letter will be a capital. Thats fine! But sometimes I'll type a 'WORd' and it doesn't change back to lowercase quick enough.

    I thought this would be down to spell correction, but after turning off the difference was slight.

    It's bloody annoying.

    Also, pressing the menu button in an app always takes around 5 seconds to come up. Is this normal?

    The apps running in the background, all using 0cpu are usually:
    Sense, obiously
    Turnsilent,
    Locale stuff,
    and sometimes Meebo.

    I also have Wavesecure installed,
    SMS backup (to gmail)
    Phonemypc
    Dolphin browser
    Visual voicemail

    Any help would be appreciated. =] thanks

    I agree, I'm having real problems with the speed of the keyboard. It's even worse when you are in the browser (when replying to messages from this forum for example)

    anyone else?

    ditto... until a few days ago.

    Someone on this site posted that they turned off the vibration feedback, it makes a huge difference, seriously HTC should not have included the feedback when it causes such lag.

    Try it and post back to let me know if it works for you guys too :p

    Yeah turning the vibration off seems to work alot!

    I'll comment again tonight after work to see if the snappier response lasts.

    Well after using it for the evening, I'm still getting the lag, not so bad, but still fairly bad. And plus I miss the feedback!
