    I would suggest that you upgrade to the OS .113 because it sounds like you are still on .75. I made the jump from .75 to .113 when it first came out and yes it has a full keyboard in portrait and many other features that .75 lacks. It is also very stable and much faster than .113. Do a search for it and you will find a thread with the download for the OS and also search for the how to walk throught...

    The link is in my signature! use 113, NOT 114, 114 has a critical bug.

    I would suggest you spend a few weeks with your phone and get familiar with it. Start to learn to use it's functions and download some apps and play around with them. Hang around this site for a few weeks before jumping and screwing with the OS.

    just a suggestion ....

    g'luck.

    First off, bravo to everyone for not flaming him and telling him to go read the hundreds of post on the OS.

    Second,

    You can do it on a MAC using VM Fusion or Parallels. I just did it 3 times (.114 > .114v2 > .113). However, and this is a big however, I've had VM Fusion just exit on me while running WinXP. No warning, no nothing. So I was taking a chance but I made sure not to do anything else during the installation.

    Good luck and you came to the right website.

    Just an FYI. You can't pm or email anyone until you have 10 posts on CB. I know I've tried.

    I think everyone is missing the bigger picture here....

    he said he went to the Verizon store... the VZW Rep had the full keyboard in portrait... That means that dude has the OS leaks on his phone too!

    Maybe it's me, but I think that's freakin HILARIOUS... /speakquicklyandquietly and it must also mean that the new OS is coming out tomorrow /end_thatcrap
