    Yes I am - especially the swipe-left to Delete, double-tap for the cursor, swipe up/down for scrolling pages and swipe up when doing Predictive Emojis. I had been using the LE for a while but went back to using Key2 for this, realised I missed this more than I thought!

    Not anymore. Disabled them recently because BB still hasn't fixed the keyboard software.

    And since you said your battery doesn't last as long as it did at launch, you basically have a faster LE with bigger keys lol

    Can't live without it.

    However, when I double-tap for cursor, navigate it towhere I want to and start typing, it joins the word together with what I'm typing as one sentence. What's up with that?

    I so badly want to turn it off but I NEED the double tap / cursor. I just wish it was more customizable

    Bump
    Why bump the thread when the last reply (before yours) was just a couple of hours ago?

    Keeping it on top in the first days is crucial to gain some momentum.

    Keeping it at the top in order to obtain as big a sample as possible. Cheers,

    Don't be annoying with it. Besides, if people care it will find its own momentum.

    Bumping - Bumping a thread means to post an innocuous reply to a thread in order to "bump" it to the top of a forum. Excessive bumping is prohibited, and is limited to once per 24 hour period.

    Interesting, is bumping against forum policy Blaz1ze? Aren't 90% of threads on here venting annoyances and seeking/sourcing help? Since members are not on here everyday, week or sometimes, months, is it not ok to try and cull data over a short but reasonable period of time for our devises and community? Perhaps I misunderstood what this forum was created/conceived for - or, something has perhaps changed?

    Hardly anyone 'bumps' a normal post. They generally communicate, or reply with something of substance not just an annoying 'bump'. Bumps generally come from marketplace posts, where people are trying to attract attention to their for sale items and yes, it's in the forum rules. - https://forums.crackberry.com/volunt.../#post12806924

    Lock and unlock phone is a new one. I use gestures and have them turned on. Although lots of times they feel lonely and just start using themselves. I paid for them and I'm going to use them if I have rub my keys off to get the middle words to swipe up.

    In my case (and also for others) cleaning the keyboard was very helpful in improving the swiping success.

    Can of compressed air or blowing into the keyboard (make sure device is turned off)

    Cleaning the keys with eye glasses cleaning product. (Don't spray directly into the keys and don't use tissues that are too wet)

    Be glad that CB is so lenient about it. I've been on forums where bumping was only allowed once every 48 or 72 hours, so once every 24 hours is very generous.

    There is no need to rehash this again. Compliance has already been stated. Thank you,
