    Question Hard 2 Type in Landscape...

    Advertisement



    My thumbs are hurting from pressing down so hard on the letters in landscape mode. Is there anyway that I can change this to make it more sensitive??? I went to options > screen/keyboard > touchscreen...does this have anything to do with it?

    I have mine set to the following, I believe it does help a bit more it might help you too.

    • Tap Interval - 250
    • Hover Period - 600
    • Swipe Sensitivity - (High) 6


    Cheers!

    Is this your first BB? The press/click is lighter on my storm then any other full qwerty phone I've ever owned. (Although this may be my perception I suppose)

    Don't just stick a card in it. Take it back for a new one.

    Ive having a heck of a time with landscape mode typing as well. It takes me SOOO much longer to send a text in landscape than it does when I do it in portrait mode. I guess ill keep practicing.

    Think about it like a keyboard... left part use left hand thumb finger, right part use right hand thumb If you go over to the other part of the keyboard you will click wrong letter since the button is design on an angle, at least that is what I have figure out and that is the way I type fast. Some times too fast since my OS doesn't keep up
