    Is there any software or tricks to get more room typing in portrait mode.

    Forget multitap..Too slow for me.. and my fingers are too big for landscape unless i can't get suretype to agree with me ( often)..

    All this space wasted with stuff that we could opt out on!..

    minimize incoming message once we start to type down to about 3 lines ( or totally) have it come back with back key.. typing a message and fixing a spelling mistake or making an edit is the biggest PITA i have ever experienced with 3 lines of text... try editing that with big fingers!.. then i just about get it and the screen scrolls on me and ...poof... start over

    get rid of phone numbers ( there's a line or two right there! )

    Be able to tell the stupid smiley to get lost! With such a limited amount of space that seems pretty ridiculous... OH yes.. I love these things!!

    =========================

    Is there anything out there that makes the S2 a little more text friendly.

    That is my biggest beef with the S2... ( and the browser is better than a verizon cell phone but after a while.. even that gets old... especially trying to swipe up or down the page on the screen and it thinks i want to Zoom in!.. ARRRGGGG

    And Forget 1500 word user license agreements that we have to scroll page after pager just to marry the stupid application with I do!

    ( or am i missing something with the browser...) I came from a curve back when the S2 launched and the i always felt the Curve was actually more intuitive for editing... typing... but give me the big screen.. Things like goto end.. and trackball speed (when it worked ).. simple fix though.. could replace one while sitting at a stop light..

    Thanks for any in site.. Ive just had some problems with notification tones that do not work and it may be ..607..
    I just this has made my level of frustration come to a boil with this thing..

    Especially when it decides it wants to notify an SMS MSG when I have it on dead silent!.. OH PLEASE!... I'm like what the heck!... could be the phone too.. ( if .7xx does't work i'll be going back for S2 #3

    i'll find out in a minute when i put .7xx on line..

    but my problem is the inefficient use of screen space.

    Why can't they treat sms like Email?

    i know... get a phone that is good at texting...

    Youd think in all of this R&D.. they would say.. Wow.. that's a pain!..

    i was hoping to find some app for that... ( no pun intended!)

    Really the Storm2 is one of the easiest phones I've ever typed on and I have fat fingers! Try typing in the Portrait Mode, using the SureType keyboard. It takes a couple weeks for it to "learn" your words, but once it does, you should be able to type very fast.
