Default Problem typing fast on 8300

Please Login to Remove!

I can't find another post on this topic, so am writing my own to see if anyone else has the same problem. I just got the Curve 8300 (ATT, enterprise) and am having a major issue where the Curve misses on letters typed quite frequently. I type fairly quickly on the keyboard, and at the end of a sentence many letters are missing. I hear the "click" from the button, but nothing shows up on the screen. Typing slowly works, but is a pain. Have used Blackberry and Treo for many years and never had this problem. Any thoughts?

Welcome to the forums.

See if this will help: Click on Options (or Settings then Options) -> Screen/Keyboard. There is a setting for 'Key Rate'. Set that to 'Fast' and see if it helps.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

Like anything else, you will have to get used to it and you will. I have the 8800 which has larger keys but no spaces. At first, I was having your experiences. Now, I type faster than I would on a PC.

I have the exaact same problem, I'm quite a quick typer on my curve, and some letters just don't "show-up".
I did resolve a bit of my issue - gtalk was always running in the background, and was eating my bandwidth/ device memory - just by closing it I am 80% back to full speed and pleasure of my curve.
